Shark Vision-R BeCool Helmet

SHARK R&D engineers have created a helmet that offers the panoramic eyeport of an open-face helmet, for one of the widest view angles currently on the market, combined with the safety of the latest generation of full-face fiber-composite shells. 

The SHARK patented faceshield mechanism ensures a perfect seal which equates to better soundproofing, less draft and an improved water-tight seal. The Rapid Anti-Fog System slightly opens the shield in anti-mist position. This has been designed to operate smoothly with the use of gloves. 

Features:

  • Integrated drop-down sun visor
  • Two composite-fiber shell sizes
  • Shark Easy Fit glasses system offers wearers a comfort lining which has a pre-fitted system to accommodate all types of glasses
  • New Anti-Scratch/Anti-Fog coating 
  • Removable and interchangeable 3 piece liner
  • Neckroll is PVC free and features reflective material at rear
  • Included chin curtain
  • Two upper vents and 1 lower vents with optimized venturi effect
  • Double D ring strap closure
  • Sharktooth-ready
  • ECE 2205 and DOT Certified
  • Approximate Weight from: 1725 g + / – 50 g in size Large

Shark Vision-R BeCool Helmet 4.3 5 18 18
great helmet, lots of features, comfortable, a little loud bought this after speaking with revzilla over the phone and picking through a bunch of helmets. its packed with features and the fit and finish is exceptional for this price point. the internal sun visor fogs easily when your not moving but its not that bad and clears up quickly once you start rolling. my only real problem with the helmet is the wind noise, it is loud, like noticeably loud. other than that its a great helmet and it gives you great bang for your buck. its comfortable and the field of vision is really amazing. i would recommend it to anyone looking for a medium price point helmet who wants lots of features. the vision r color scheme is cool too.

Amazing view! This helmet provides the best view I've ever seen in a helmet! Its visor is super tall! Love it! I have the orange/black one and find it beautiful and functional with its highvis feature. The sun visor is excellent. Though I always feel with these that I'd wish it'd be better if they reached down a little lower so that I wouldn't see such a gap at the bottom. But it's not tragic by any stretch of imagination :) February 24, 2014
Great stuff Extremelly beautiful helmet, quiet, light weight and 4 star ranking..great cost x benefict February 24, 2014
Great helmet for the price After the first few times using it, the fit did get a little more comfortable due to the break in. I'd still go a size up. It does get noisy, but that's only because the chin curtain is retracted. If it's not, the noise is nearly eliminated. I ride with headphones (over the ears) and it fits fine with them. Difficult to put on, but once you get a system, you'll be fine. The strap is easy to put on and release. The vents are fairly easy to adjust. You just have to find the feel for the spot. Same goes with the drop down visor. That visor does tend to fog is you're at a stop, but just fine during the movements. Love that thing! Airflow feel pretty average to me. No complain against it. The vision truly does give a wide vision. Great to "eye ball" those cars as you pass them for last minute lane changes. It fits very light to my head and is fairly aerodynamic with wind drag. Hard gusts of course will make you bob your head still. Pro: Price, comfort, design, field of view, weight Con: Sizing, headphone friendly Overall, I'd say it's a very good helmet February 3, 2014
Shark Vision-R BeCool Helmet great helmet for the price. Dont let the goofy name fool you. This helmet is great. I have a 59cm head so I was right on the bottom for a size large. Put it on and it felt like a extra large way to much room. Sent it back for a medium and it fits much better, still feel like the medium is a little large. So for my face shape this helmet runs very large. The field of view is amazing, it feels like you are wearing a open face helmet and the shield is clear as day, I actually tried to scratch a itch on my nose the first day I had it on forgetting I was not wearing a open face. Lots of people say this is a noisy helmet but I find it very quiet, although I get a annoying whistle when riding into the wind but I closed the top vents and it goes away. My one big complaint with this helmet is that the anti fog works great on the shield but the drop down sun shade fogs up very bad even if you are barley breathing. Only seems to do it when its cold. So down here is south texas this will only be a problem for me like 2 months out of the year. Over all I would say this is a great bang for you buck, and would highly recommend December 31, 2013
A good value if caught on sale The fit and finish are excellent. This is my first Shark helmet. I typically use a Shoei. The Vision-R, as the name suggests, has excellent field of view, but accoplishes this at the expense of noise. The materials are top notch and the fit is just a bit largish as compared to a Shoei of the same size. Ventilation is almost nonexistent, however this isn't an issue since you can raise the outer shield and lower the inner and have all the venting you like. I will say that the inner tinted visor is more suited for a sport bike posture than an upright one. I have an upright riding position and find that my instrument panel view is below the tinted visor's field of view, causing me to constantly adjust my eyes from light to dark. A very minor annoyance, but worth a mention for those that don't ride a sport bike. All in all its a good helmet for the money. My first ride with it was 28 degrees F and I didn't have much of a fogging issue. Pretty good in my book. December 23, 2013
Overall well designed, quality construction I bought this helmet as a step up from my first helmet, which is a scorpion exo-400. Since I have only now used the scorpion and this helmet I can only compare the two. The price point of the exo-400 is about 160 dollars. Compared to the scorpion the vision-R is: Quieter (mostly a rustling sound, very little booming or whistle) Substantially Lighter More comfortable Vents/controls are easier to operate Much wider viewing angle, both horizontal & vertical Substantially less buffeting Much less, virtually no draft from the face shield The scorpion is polycarbonate, and this is fiberglass, so that explains the lower weight of the vision-r. As far as sound, it's quite a bit quieter. My scorpion makes loud booming sounds as it gets knocked around by the wind. Sometimes when passing a truck at high speeds with the scorpion helmet the turbulence knocks my head around so much I have to force myself still do I don't get disoriented; the vision-r has absolutely none of this problem. This and the weight makes for a very comfortable, non fatiguing helmet. I have seen some complaint about poor venting on this helmet. Perhaps there are more expensive helmets which vent better, but compared to my scorpion the vision-r vents very well. Don't be fooled by the small vent port in the back. Trust me, I'm a physicist, the amount of suction back there is going to be massive. The venting quality of this helmet is ultimately dominated by the structure of the EPS inside. My scorpion has an essentially round, flat inside with two grooves that run front to back and connect to holes which go up into the shell and towards the vents. The total size of the vents on the back are larger, but the interface between the inside of the EPS and the inside of the shell is minimal, so the larger vents are minimally taken advantage of. The vision-r is the opposite. The grooves in the EPS are deep and many. They spiderweb all throughout the inside, so the vents directly access the entirety of your head. You can feel the suction on that small back vent. The fit is slightly rounder than the scorpion. Scorpion helmets fit me great, but this fits me slightly better. The helmet swoops under the back of the head nicely and goes pretty low on the neck. It's very comfortable. The vision-r is slightly bulkier, but the EPS is thicker. The structure of the EPS looks like it's well designed to buckle and crush in the event of impact. The chin curtain is great for noise reduction and colder weather. With the vents closed the venting is effectively limited as well. I was riding in 30 degrees last night with the vents closed, and I keep my head shaven, I was fine. Open the vents and I am immediately very cold. The shield doesn't distort light at all. On my scorpion the shield does distort vision a little at the sides. The vision-r really makes side checks faster, easier, gives you excellent vision. My ONLY complaint about this helmet, however, is actually a very fundamental design flaw. The shield has an antifog coating which is very effective, but the drop down sun visor does not. So long as you're moving it's fine, but when you stop the sun visor may quickly fog. You essentially eliminate this by opening up the chin curtain so your breath can escape out the bottom, but in colder weather you will want it closed. If the sun visor had an antifog coating this helmet would be virtually perfect. With this helmet on sale, the extra 100 dollars to upgrade from my scorpion was very well worth it. This helmet is an enormous upgrade. Hope this helps! December 8, 2013
Great helmet, great deal I normally wear a half helmet (Bell Pit Boss) but I've moved from California, where I could wear it year round, to Georgia, where winter is considerably colder. Since I commute over an hour in the early morning, I needed a new helmet, and after trying on everything I could find in local retail shops and being disappointed, I ordered the Shark Vision-R in matte black/orange, and I love it. The huge area of vision is great, and makes the switch from half helmet to full face a little easier. The materials and build quality is excellent, the integrated Sun visor is terrific, and between the great deal on the visor and the removable, adjustable chin cover, the helmet keeps me plenty warm. There is some fogging at stops, but it clears quickly once moving. My only complaint is the top vents, even flipping them open/closed at freeway speeds, I can't tell a difference. But the chin vent works great. It's everything I could have wanted in a full face helmet at a great price. November 12, 2013

Kendel V: Was looking for a new shark helmet to replace my current s700 series.. The mate black w/white stripe was a nice touch. Mar 19, 2014
Alex W: I wanted a full face helmet with a very large view port. Fiberglass is lighter and crumples better under impact. All in all I thought this would be a large upgrade in comfort, view and protection than my current helmet (Scorpion EXO400). It was also nearly half off when I bought it. Mar 1, 2014

A shopper asked: Does the helmet actually say "ECE 2205" anywhere on it? I bought another Shark helmet from Revzilla which said it was ECE2205 certified, but if it doesn't say ECE 2205 it's not certified as per Germany law. Mar 15, 2014

A shopper asked: Your product details says the helmet has a Double D ring strap closure, but Shark's website says it has a ?Precise Lock? chin strap buckle. I really want to buy one but I prefer the "precise lock" option, do you have one with that feature? Jan 31, 2014

Jason E: I GOT MY SHARK LIKE A YEAR AND A HALF AGO IT HAS THE DOUBLE D RING STRAP. THEY MAY HAVE CHANGED IT IN A YEAR AND A HALF THOUGH. THE HELMET IS GREAT YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED. Jan 31, 2014
Reply to Jason Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Anthony O: It's a double-D closure which works just fine. As a note this is one of the most comfortable helmets I've ever owned, especially the eyeglass arm cutout feature. Yes, I wear glasses. And the internal sunshade feature is fantastic. I installed a Euro tinted shield, which I ordered from the UK, which gives a little more UV protection and can be worn at night. My Bell Star Rally kills my head after an hour but the Shark I can wear all day. The Shark helmet fits a little large, so if your current helmet size is a little tight, this one will fit fine.

Alex W: I'm not sure what a precise lock is. Mine has two D rings. It doesn't have a snap for the slack, it has a little plastic piece to slide the slack under and a piece which prevents it from slipping out. Jan 31, 2014

Xbrit13: The Shark Vision-R helmet is DOT and ECE-2205 approved, meaning that in a crash the inner liner transmits less shock to the rider's head than a comparable Snell-rated helmet. i.e. it absorbs more of the impact offering better protection. Jul 1, 2012
