Shark Vision-R Series 2 Inko Helmet
Perfect helmet for the price point
Got this helmet on closeout in the mid $200 range, and at that pricepoint, this thing is great. It fits very comfortably on my blocky head. It is much quieter than my cheaper sevenzeroseven helmet that I was wearing. I have no complaints about this helmet. Vents well enough if you don't live somewhere too hot. Would totally purchase again.

I really like this helmet it is really comfortable and has a lot of features, including a visor, autoseal, and what i really like is the curtain under the chin which you can easily move to let more are in or prevent air from coming inside!

Great for the money
Very comfortable helmet with a wide vision range, great ventilation, and easy-to-access visor features. I ride a naked bike, and at speeds under 60mph this is a fantastic helmet. At speeds over 60mph this catches ALL of the wind and it becomes a struggle for me to stay stable on the bike with my head acting as a sail.
I highly recommend this for "around town" riding. I commute to work on backroads, and this is my everyday commuting helmet. If I'm riding on the highway, however, I'll wear my Shoei GT Air.

This helmet is packed with awesome feathers which ware excellent for me.
Room for glasses on the sides.
City visor mode.
D rings lock mechanism.
When I put my helmet and lock the D rings and I forget to tuck in the tip, its slams into the helmet in the wind and a bit annoying but ok. Usually I remember to tuck it in.
Overall I'm very happy with this helmet and I would defiantly recommend it.

Good helmet, good price.
I've been looking for a helmet that would reduce the wind roar on my Rocket 3 for a reasonable price. This Shark does a great job of that. What a relief! Quality helmet at a great price.

Love the look!
I love the look of this helmet, it goes perfect with my flat black Iron 883, but.... it is a little loud, a little heavy and it's pretty hard to see below you.
I will start by saying it's really comfy inside! The air vents really do work and keeps you cool inside. It's very snug, so putting in earphones has been a little challenging, but not that bad. They style is hot, I love it!
So now for the not so great. The loudness of the wind coming up from below the helmet is a little much. Wearing earplugs is recommended.
The helmet is heavy, at least for me. My neck and shoulders start to hurt after wearing it for a while, but on that note, I am a girl, I do work out regularly but it may take some getting used to. This is my first helmet and I wish I would have gone carbon. Next time!
Looking down is a challenge. With the nose/mouth piece, it does cover up a good portion of your view and I find myself over exaggerating to look where I'm going or trying to see beneath me. Add the heaviness and it's a little uncomfortable.
These are things that are not super horrible and I will continue to wear the helmet and hopefully over time I will get used to the not so great things. For the price, I think it's great :)

Worth it on sale
My Biltwell Gringo wasn't doing much good for me in the winter months, so I needed an upgrade in the helmet department. For the amount of features this helmet has, it's great!
I haven't yet been able to fog up the visor, even in the rain.
The sun shield is a really awesome feature, but like others have mentioned, it would be much better if it came down further.
For whatever reason, the wind collar comes out of the helmet FAR too easily. It makes even carrying the Vision-R a bit awkward.
The noise level is far reduced from my Gringo, which I love. The gasket system around the visor works like a charm. Got caught in a downpour yesterday and not a drop got through the visor. I don't expect much noise reduction when it comes to straddling a piece of steel at +/-70mph, so I'm pretty content with the noise level this helmet provides.
Venting system seems adequate enough to me, although it's super difficult to find/operate the induction vent levers on the top of the head with gloves.
By far the best feature of this helmet is it's moniker: the field of vision it provides is awesome
As you can see, the cheek pads haven't really given way quite yet, adding a little bit of chipmunk to my face. If this doesn't give way in time, I'll have to replace the cheek pads with some narrower ones.
Comparable to similar helmets that are 2x the price, therefore: worth it!
