Shark Vision-R High Visibility Helmet
Well designed, great independent safety ratings, great price
I am extremely happy with this helmet. I began my search in the premium brands when I discovered exceptional independent safety ratings on this helmet at almost half the price. I purchased with the thought I could return it if I didn't like it but I'm definitely keeping this one. Resists fogging exceptionally well and I'm really happy to be rid of the pesky second inside lens I was using on my other helmets. The Vision-R is quiet and comfortable with outstanding lateral and vertical vision. Love the internal sun visor as it eliminates the need to carry a separate face shield around (and the need to stop at sunset to switch screens). Visibility is awesome during the day and the white parts glow at night. The liner is removable for cleaning. Great airflow... especially with the face shield in the defog setting. i If I were to give any criticism it would be the sun visor could be a little darker.

Sunvisor is great. Very easy to use even with heavy winter gloves on.
The helmet is a bit louder than I anticipated. Ear plugs are recommended when riding at higher speeds. Your peripheral vision is vastly improved over any other full face helmet on the market. Makes lane changing so much safer. I am an all weather all year round biker and I find it hard to get the visor (no pinlock) to fog up on me. Airflow through the helmet is brilliant. The sun visor is very easy to use and a great feature. it is dark enough for me. Would I buy this helmet again? Absolutely yes.

This is a really great helmet, its very comfortable, and it really does have a great wide angle of vision. The Sun visor is really useful and is quite a good shade, not to dark or to light.

Sunscreen is useful
Most of the times it's got good air flow
Sometimes the screen gets damped

Awesome helmet with built in sun visor, definitely worth the money. I would recommend to anyone who wants a "cheaper" nice helmet.

basically as advertised
Wide view angle is great. You barely notice the helmet in your line of sight. Great airflow. I also like the look. Flip down tinted shade is nice but if it came down an inch or so further it'd be better. Price isn't bad for what you're getting. I'm still debating adding Bluetooth, I'm not sure just how well the helmet is set up for it though.

Great helmet, great style
Just two weeks to breaking in it, the size was perfect (M), according to the chart. The color I had was bright black, the lenses are great, even with Oakley shades, fits nice and comfortable. take care of the sliding shades.

Great overall helmet
Delivery was very quick. Fit is right on - round oval and snug, just like the enclosed directions said it should be. This was my first full-face helmet (half helmets and full visor helmets previously), but the peripheral vision is terrific. It's also quiet (without earplugs). Topgun sun visor is very cool and easy to lower and raise. Shield stays put and vents provide very comfortable air flow. Chin curtain is a plus. Helmet shape doesn't get buffeted much at speed unlike the visor helmet I was using before. Overall feeling is solid, comfortable protection that doesn't feel claustrophobic. Bike is a customized Meanstreak, no windscreen or fairing.
