Shark Speed-R Sauer Helmet

SHARK is proud to present a new philosophy. Utilizing all SHARK’s expertise in safety, innovation and function the SPEED -R is a helmet specifically designed to meet the passionate demands of un-faired motorcycle riders.

Double blade air spoiler: positioned at the rear of the Speed-R, it allows the air to flow above and below the blade, hence the dual venturi effect to extract warm air from the helmet.

Spoiler/stabilizer: at its rear base trim the Speed-R has a spoiler, which stabilizes the helmet and the cancels the buffering effect. The immediate benefit is no air turbulence running inside the helmet and greater stability at a steady speed.

Features:

  • Latest generation composite ‘long fibre’ construction
  • Integrated, drop down sun visor
  • Extensive wind-tunnel testing to perfect aerodynamics and ventilation system for use with ‘naked’ road bikes
  • Double cavity rear spoiler creates faster air circulation to drastically reduce fogging 
  • Rear deflector stabilizer reduces helmet buffeting
  • Faceshield varies in thickness and is optically correct, scratch resistant and anti-fog coated
  • Completely remove and washable COOLMAX lining 
  • Shark Easy Fit glasses system offers wearers a comfort lining which has a pre-fitted system to accommodate all types of glasses
  • ECE 2205 and DOT approved
  • Two shell sizes

Shark Speed-R Sauer Matte Helmet 4.4 5 87 87
great helmet I bought this helmet to replace my shark evo 2 ST and its so much lighter i hardly notice that i have it on my head sometimes. its also a lot more aerodynamic lane checks at 80 are a breeze. May 25, 2015
This Helmet is the worst .. but it looks good .. Had the helmet for three weeks and it has fallen completely apart. Im sending this helmet back to Shark soaked in urine... lol ... no I wont do that but I am sending this helmet back to shark .... The helmet looks awesome ... but There is no air flow The paint is like nail polish... and it falls apart..within 2 weeks... the first part to go is the spoiler on the back then the front vent.. the visor will fail... the de-clicked shield will not stay up after you take it off the helmet ... it just falls down with ease now ... but the helmet is so stylish and rare to see in the US.. I'm going to buy another shark .. just not this piece - o - shiz The good: It looks so good .. Its fits like a glove its light ... really light ... Good wide vision visor/shield tab placement is great on the side.. May 19, 2015
excellent. buy Ótimo capacete, bonito, confortável e com sua lentes internas muito práticas. Único detalhe que se usar balaclava ele fica um pouco folgado. Vai ter de usar sempre, Mas tirando isso, e um ótimo capacete. Recomendo! May 10, 2015
Good in Theory, Bad Quality Good Start: When I opened the box, played with all the levers, and tested the fit I was quite happy. It's an attractive but not overly aggressive or flashy helmet. The weight was a bit more than I expected, but not excessive. Packaging and the included helmet bag was on par for a $400 helmet. Visibility and comfort were nice. I'm afraid that's all I have that's nice to say about the helmet. Critical Failure: Within a days use of the product the drop down sun visor mechanism broke. The tiny tab that held it in place failed. This was extremely frustrating. Thankfully, it was still cold and riding weather was still few and far between. Standard Shark warranty service is 4 weeks at least. Revzilla was easy to work with and accepted my return with no fuss. A month goes by and I had my helmet back... temporarily fixed. I return home from an extended work trip to find it's riding season. I ride my bike for at least 4 trips a day when the weather permits. The sun visor mechanism failed four days into my work week! Totally unacceptable. Thankfully, Revzilla customer service came through and I'm moving on to a new brand. Other Gripes: The visor seal is very firm, but air seepage is persistent all around. In the summer you could call it good air flow. In winter I'd be concerned. Shark logo on front are just cheap stickers. Simply bumping them with gloves while trying to work vent levers can lift them. Very annoying, and low quality feel. May 8, 2015
Quality Issues, Poor Documentation Let me preface this by saying this is the first helmet I have purchased. After searching for a helmet with the features found on this model I decided to buy it in matte black. One of the first things I noticed was the terrible quality of the logo stickers. Yes they are stickers if you were unsure. One of the problems was they had some white fuzz underneath the adhesive. Second, they were already peeling on the corners. I don't mind logos much but these were not very well thought out or implemented. They also get in the way when cleaning the helmet. No doubt they would've fallen off in time so I removed them. It looks much better in my opinion. For someone who doesn't have experience with helmets I would've expected some kind of user manual or basic instructions as to care of the helmet or the features included. Perhaps I just didn't get that but there wasn't any paperwork detailing care (removal of pads, how to care for matte finish, safety considerations). Seems a bit sloppy from any company. As for the good things this helmet seems well made and it fits great. Haven't had a lot of time to test it but I expect it to work well. It also comes with a pinlock visor and cotton bag for the helmet. I'm pretty happy with it overall. The last thing I'd like to say is it seems like the slider for the sun visor flexes a bit when moving. Feels like plastic that might break given enough time and/or pressure. May 8, 2015
Quality Control = BAD Had my Speed-R Sauer helmet for about 3 weeks before the pin that holds the hub in for the visor snapped. Had to return it to RevZilla since they handle Shark's warranty. Even though Shark has a 5 year guarantee, their website is terrible and is mostly written in French. Warranty is handled through RevZilla, which is fine, but I'm out of a helmet for about 5-9 weeks (including a week to ship it to RevZilla - I'm guessing it takes another week for them to ship it to Shark). I bought a reflective smoke visor for another $80 and it just sits around now since there's no helmet for it. Not sure what to do with it as I'd probably not buy another Shark helmet. The front chin vent was cheaply made and was on the verge of snapping off. The chin sock to keep the air out is cheaply made as well and fit on my some slight friction between the liner and the helmet. It always came loose and I was always afraid it was going to go flying off while on the highway. The helmet is not as quiet as I thought it would be. Also the cheek pads are crazy tight. Not sure if you can adjust the size either. And the VISOR. It's finicky to adjust the tightness. It doesn't stay in place. It kinda sucks. Really bad. The hub ended up snapping off in mine. Would not recommend this helmet. April 22, 2015
Awesome looks, c&$p quality Ive had this helmet for 2 years and done 10,000kms with it. Love the looks, love the fit just the quality let it down. After 3-4 months the visor could not stay up, after a year the pivot snapped off meaning I could not ride with a visor. Under the large looking plastic cover there is a tiny aluminium screw maybe 1-2mm wide. I continued to use as a summer lid with sunglasses, the final straw was the hinges for the front vent snapping causing it to flap around. It's also worth mentioning this helmet fouls on Alpinestars Tech 1-R jacket hump. Helmet size XL jacket USA 40. It's a real shame as its a cool looking comfy lid. Riding was 90% canyon carving, 10% commuting. '08 CBR600 RR April 16, 2015
Almost perfect. Had this helmet for a little over a year and have no complaints. Vents well and the internal visor works great. With the exterior visor down (but not locked) it provides additional airflow to the face. When riding the rear spoiler prevents buffeting at speed (in the 3/4 tuck position). DOT and ECE rated, and 4/5 stars from SHARP. Visually the Speed R looks bigger than I'd like (see photo with my Shoei X11), but I attribute that to the internal visor and the extra space required (or the "Shark Fin" interior foam shape). The graphic is painted on (as opposed to stickers on my X11) which I do like. However it lacks a clear coat, and is easily scratched (see photos). Also I dropped it on the crown when carrying it (dangling from the chin strap) and the top vent cover popped off. Nothing super glue can't fix. April 9, 2015

David B: Sadly buy a new helmet. To my knowledge all DOT helmets are single impact rated, 1 drop and you're supposed to buy a new one, even if there's no visible damage. The structure of the helmet is designed to collapse on impact to absorb impact energy, it's similar to crumple zones on a car, you're not going to get the same protection from your car if you crash a second time. Definitely DO NOT wear that helmet anymore. May 20, 2015
