Shark Speed-R Sykes Replica Helmet
All around high quality for low cost!
This helmet is such an upgrade from my last (HJC) one! The fit is nice and snug, while incredibly comfortable. Good airflow and very quiet! I love the retractable tinted visor and other features, and the helmet looks great too!

I got the Shark Speed-R helmet and the Schuberth s2 at the same time (they were both on close out) to compare and this one was way better not to mention cheaper. The fit is really comfortable and it is quieter than the Schuberth! No joke, I wore them both at highway speeds and around town and the Shark won hands down. The sun visor is not fog resistant which is annoying but, most aren't that I have tried. The visor is a little bit stiff and can be hard to operate with one hand at first. It wore in after about a month though. It is adequate in the rain. plenty of room for headphones or speakers. Shark is an innovator and has some misses but this one is a goody.

Helmet fits very comfortable ,noise is average compared to my shoi rf 1200 . The layout or looks if you want to call it that are great turns heads everywhere great looking helmet . The sun visor not the best thing in the world it fogs up ,doesn't cover the whole area of vision has a slight difference in the bottom of the visor . air flow is very good keeps cool in the summer . but over all i love this helmet only con is the sunvisor wish they would of made it fog proof or pinlock .

Great Helmet, Visor is tough to open
Great helmet, runs a little smaller then my HJC but same size worked for me. The helmet is great, comfortable, glasses gap is excellent, style is boss. The only complaint is that the visor almost requires a tool to open. It make ease up once it is broken in but I have been in situations where i was unable to pop the visor while riding. I use the included chin cover as the weather here in ND can still be pretty cold and breathing in the helmet at speeds below 15mph will cause the visor to fog and you cannot open it so stoplights and parking lots have gotten interesting. I will probably try and smooth out the edges on the catch and see if i can get her to ease up.

Awesome helmet - when it's not broken
Love the helmet - its my first helmet for a first time rider. Bought a fz07 last march and havent looked back. But this helmet has broken on me three times.
Twice on the visor clip and once on the sun visor clip that attaches to the slider. Not cool having to deal with so many issues in less than a year.
Otherwise - great helmet

2nd Speed R
I love my first Speed R so much wanted a spare! It seem every time I find a product I really like they stop making it. This helmet fits my intermediate oval melon perfectly with no pressure points. It has good airflow and the drop down visor is a must in Florida, especially on those light top motorways down here. The fit and finish on both helmets are spot on. I have had the first Speed R for about 2.5years and have had no problems with it. The liner has held up great and despite a lot of use has not developed any funky smells. My new Duke is a bright Hot orange, I love it!

After reviewing and trying on a lot of different brands I decided to try this shark. I like the innovations Shark is coming up with, only wish they had more to offer in the US, but I did find this helmet and was greatly impressed with the comfort and style and accessibility of all the product features.

Little pricey but worth it
Great fit right out of the box. Wearing glasses while wearing a helmet has never been this easy. Light weight. Shell size not bulky, so I don't look like a mushroom head. Overall, great helmet. It's on the more expensive side of things, but I believe it's worth it.
