Very nice helmet with a few little flaws
I want to state that I went into my newest helmet search looking for a helmet that had an internal sun visor, and is quiet.
As far as those three things go, this helmet scores 1/2 Personally, I think that the internal sun visor could be a lot darker, but it's sufficient.
The helmet seems quiet in some ways, and loud in other ways. The neckroll is very well encompassing and seals up around your neck pretty well. I do have a little bit of a whistle coming through the face-shield though. However, the helmet seems very stable; I've noticed little to no buffeting and during head checks I feel like the helmet is just an extension of my head.
Moving on, the city-crack position is perfect on this helmet. It opens the visor up just enough to get some good airflow on your face without the air going into your eyes.
As far as vents go, this helmet doesn't perform as well as my Scorpion EXO 900 Transformer. The chin vent seems like it just covers up its own opening, and opens very weird. The top two vents seem pretty average.
The tie thing on the front neckroll seems pretty gimicky. It's not something you can operate while on the bike and I don't really see a situation where one would want it tightened anyway.
I have to comment on Shark's decision to put some weird strap thing for the chin-strap. Every helmet I've had has used the plastic button to secure the strap but Shark decided to use a slide-in securing method that you have to use two hands to operate. The rubber thing on the end of the strap makes it a little more difficult to undo the strap from the Double-D ring as well.
One last thing to note, the helmet I received has white vent covers on top, not black like the picture shows. The graphic Revzilla is using is different than what I was shipped.

Solid all around helmet
First helmet I've ever had that my glasses don't feel kind of cramped wearing. The airflow is excellent compared to my old HJCs and Bells, but I don't have any experience with the likes of a GT Air to compare it to.
I'm amazed at how quiet this helmet is. Closing the visor gives a similar sensation to rolling up a car window on the expressway. Just a 'thump' and then everything is ~30% quieter. That gasket system on the visor is really something else.
The internal visor clears my glasses no problem, and has very nice coverage.
One thing to note is that the chin curtain/neck role is 1 piece, and if you want to go with a 3rd party comm system you might need a wired mic mount. There's plenty of room for the clamp, but if you have an attached boom mic such as on the base Sena SMH10 units you can make it work, but it's pretty gnarly looking. In my case the SMH-A302 mount was the better way to go. Fits great, looks clean, and I could still use the boom style mic it comes with because there's plenty of velcro on the inside of the cheek pad to stick the mic mount to.

Zachary C: Internal Visor, eyeglasses comfort fit options, good SHARP rating, and cheaper than the comparable GT-AirAug 15, 2014
Matt S: The biggest reason is having a helmet that doesn't ruin my expensive eyeglasses. I can't believe every helmet manufacturer doesn't address this considering a significant portion of riders wear eyeglasses. Beyond that, the styling, features and build quality make it a great value. The large field of vision is a big plus!Jul 24, 2014
Matthew T: I like the idea of a drop down visor and the glasses friendly cheek pads sound great.Jul 8, 2014
A shopper asked:If I'm buying from Australia, does this come with an australian safety standards approved sticker? or do i have to buy in country?Jul 17, 2014
Guilherme C:Yes, this is correct. The top ports are white and not black. To be honest, I haven't realized until now. The helmet still looks cool with the white ports, but perhaps would like even cooler if they were black...a point to consider. I am happy with the purchase...good ventilation...sun visor works well...no complaintsSep 3, 2014
A shopper asked:The description says that the Shark Vision-R series 2 has a micro lock buckle system, but the video says that it has a double D. Which is correct and do any of the other Shark helmets have a micro lock buckle system?Aug 8, 2014
John S asked:I have concerns about is how secure the face shield is in a crash. Can you pull it off without having it all the way up? I like everything about this helmet except for that "feature." Why put a quick change system in a helmet that has an internal drop-down sun visor?Aug 2, 2014
Paul A:I had a high-side at 50+ MPH and landed on my forehead and shoulder. The right upper quadrant and shield were ground down from the subsequent slide, but the shield never budged. This was the original Vision R.Sep 3, 2014
