Shark Vision-R Syntic 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. 


  • 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 Syntic Helmet 4 5 9 9
Love this helmet This helmet fits great, pretty quite and has a nice shape. The worst part is the ventilation needs some work. I live in Arizona and going out at 6 am wasn't very cold but my visor kept fogging up as well as with the tinted glass shield. I think if it had better air flow then that would not be an issue. Over all i like the helmet but it might be to hot during the summer's here but it's definitely better then my Shoei hemlet. March 24, 2014
Many options.. Like others have said, this helmet offers minimal air-flow. Both visors can become foggy while not in motion- but this is assisted by the locking detent which allows some air to flow towards the visors. It has an adjustable air-flow deflector beneath the chin to prevent colder air from entering the helmet on cold mornings. The air-flow controls on the top of the helmet which open or close the vents are confusing and hard to use with gloves on. Overall a good helmet, the internal visor has proved itself to be so useful on many occasions, the designing and graphics are great and it is a very comfortable helmet. November 11, 2013
So-so... Pros... 1. Great Field of Vision 2. Great sun visor - easy to use, looks great, very dark, comes down very far. 3. Light and comfortable. 4. Very stylish and offers great protection (DOT & ECE) Cons... 1. Very loud, even with vents closed and chin strap used. 2. Extremely poorly vented. I have to have the visor cracked or it will fog up under 45 mph, even when it's relatively warm outside. I never feel any airflow and notice no difference when I have my vents "open" or closed. I would only recommend this helmet to be used for commuting during the colder season. It's getting warmer here in Arizona and soon it will be very hot... I'm glad this is not my only helmet. The best thing this helmet has going for it is the sun visor, which is absolutely amazing! April 19, 2013
Great all round helmet I really like this helmet so far. The field of view is great. The sun visor goes down far enough that there isn't the awkward gap when you look down at your gauges. The venting works fairly well, the thing on the visor to crack it open works well when I can find it. The chin curtain feels very good but the pull for it can sometimes get in the way. I would have like the chin strap to have snap instead of the slide thing to fold it back into, but that's a very minor thing. The helmet is the quietest one I've owned and the seal around the visor really keeps the wind/water out. All around a good helmet. October 1, 2012
Great Helmet! The Vision-R in lets me turn my head quickly for head checks and feels like it is a part of my head instead of something i have on my head. Other helmets i have feel as if they are stopping me from turning my head, but not the Vision-R The internal sun visor is smooth in it's operation unlike my EXO-900's down or up clunky choices. Also it's edges don't get in the way when it is down. You dont even know its down. The face shield has a VERY tight seal and really helps keep things quiet when it's down. The top vents are the only area where i feel there could be some improvement, i can't really tell if they are closed or open. The front vent works great though and much better than the other 3 helmets i own. Overall the Vision-R is a very well made helmet and i am glad i choose it! July 25, 2012
Nice helmet but has some problems Pros: - Fits like my Shark S900. - Vents well and better than my S900. - The view is exceptional with the opening measuring 4 9/16" at it's tallest point. Some other helmets I've measured are 4 1/4", 4 3/8", etc. It's kind of weird having that much viewing area. I think it's because the chin bar is so much lower than a traditional helmet. - A J&M Audio headset took 15 minutes to install versus 2.5 hours in my S900 - no surgery required. I had the J&M universal system (with thin speakers) in my S900. I transferred that system into this helmet, and there was so much room to spare I could barely hear the thin speakers. I bought a new J&M system with their regular-sized speakers, and now the the helmet rocks. - The chin gator will probably be nice in cool weather. - The neck-roll hugs your neck and reduces noise and consequently air-flow from the bottom side of the helmet. It also has retro-reflective fabric sewn into it. - The shield seals nicely in rainy weather. - The locking mechanism that holds the shield barely cracked open is nice on a rainy day; however, it is somewhat difficult to locate initially. Cons: - I like to ride with the shield open to the first detent. On this particular helmet, a 20 mph wind will close the shield. All the other detents are very tight. This is show-stopper in my book and my biggest complaint. Argh! Maybe this problem is unique to my helmet... Also, when the shield does manage to stay open at the first detent for a period of time, the shield itself actually buffets a bit. - The chin straps and associated padding are WAY too long. They could easily lose an inch or more in length. I have a hard time running the trailing end of the chin strap through the "belt loop" sewn into the chin strap because there's almost no room to fit it between the D-rings and the loop. The padding overlaps under my chin when I have the straps cinched tight. I don't have anywhere near this problem in my S900. - The sun-visor fogged like crazy on a cool, rainy day even with the locking mechanism holding the shield cracked open. My S900 sun-visor fogs some, but not nearly as bad as this thing. - The helmet is fairly loud, unless your're behind a windshield. Other ramblings: - This helmet does not have a quick-disconnect shield like previous models. The shield is removable but requires some force to detach it from the helmet. - The sun-visor could be darker. Overall, this is a decent helmet for the price-point. July 24, 2012
Shark Syntic The other two reviews don't do this helmet justice. This is a great deal and an exceptional value in helmets. I ride a BMW 1200GS with the factory windscreen in the "middle" setting. I'm 5'10" and have a 30" inseam. The helmet feels well balanced and pretty light considering all the features it offers. Absolutely no build issues what-so-ever, in fact a very well put together helmet even comparing it to a Schuberth, Arai or Shoei, for half the price of those! Comparing this to another helmet I own (a Bell Vortex) this helmet is VERY quiet with NO booming at all. The eye port is absolutely this helmets best feature! No peripheral issues at all and certainly nothing height wise either. If not for the nose piece you likely wouldn't notice anything much in your field of vision while looking forward. The inner tinted shield could be darker, but that's a typical comment of ALL interior tinted visors. It works intuitively and is fluid through its movement. Fits a round head very well. All things considered, a $700+ Schuberth it's not, but dollar for sense, a GREAT deal in anyone's book... I'm doubtful you'll be disappointed. I'm not! One happy customer!! July 9, 2012
Had to return mine due to build issues I have always owned Arai and Schuberth helmets, so build quality is very important to me. I was excited to receive this helmet due to the exceptionally good review by Anthony. But what a disappointment! The helmet I received had 3 manufacturing issues: 1. One of the 3 red color snaps on the left cheek pad was broken. 2. On the back of the helmet, was a small piece of loose styrofoam that seems to have split off the main shell. 3. One of the top vent buttons was loose and did not provide any tactile feedback. It may be a one off case that only this particular helmet has issues and not all helmets are same, but it's hard to trust a product when it has manufacturing defects out of the box. I would probably need to go back to Arai/Schuberth again. July 2, 2012

A shopper asked: I am debating between this helmet and the Icon Airmada Salient. The Icon has a ton of great reviews, where as this one is rated as somewhat noisy. I thought this may because people rating this one was use to Shoei's, Arais, etc, whereas the ones rating the Icon were newbies. Anyways, any help would be wonderful. Safety and Quietness are my two major things I am looking at. Which do you guys think I should go for? Any info at all would be greatly appreciated. Mar 5, 2014

Pete K: In all honesty I can only talk about the shark as I've not even seen the Icon. I've had the Vision R now about a month. I've been commuting and on a road trip from speeds from zero to 200kph and I haven't found it noisy. Visor down is obviously quieter and on the long trips, 500km days, I wear an ipod but most of the time I ride with the visor cracked, I like the airflow and I like to hear my bike SV1000 with Yoshi's so feel more in tune with my surroundings. Unless you're into wearing earplugs or being totally cocooned in a helmet I reckon the Vision R is fine for a mid range helmet. Other things... Internal visor is excellent, airflow is about average. It feels very light and great visibility (that's why I chose it) but only thing I don't like is the DD rings opposed to a easy snap buckle and the internal padding could be thicker but it's adequate. Hope this helps. Pete. Mar 6, 2014

Nep B: This is a great lid, light weight compareable to shoei and arai. As to the noise it is not bad at all the chin curtain is a to help with the noise.
The quality and fit is great also comparable to shoei.

I would definatly get another Shark, currently riding in the Vision R.

Luis G: I am a rider with over 40 years of riding experience. I currently own an Arai and a Bell Star, had a Shoei recently. The Shark is a very quiet helmet, in my opinion, as quiet or more than any of the above mentioned helmets. I'm glad i bought a Vision-R. Mar 6, 2014

Roy S: I really like this helmet but it is noisier than my old Icon Alliance. The flip down screen was the big selling feature for me. If you are looking for quiet you probably want to keep looking. Mar 5, 2014

Christopher O: I am a male with a M size head. This helmet is actually a little roomier than my previous helmet I purchased in M from Shark. While I do like the internal shades, they fog easy on a cold morning so can't be used. Also, this helmet is much noisier than my last helmet and I can't figure out why. The wind noise is almost unbearable at speeds above 55 while wearing foam ear plugs, whereas I can wear my other helmet at high speed without plugs. Given the extra roominess of the helmet I would think you could get away with the XS. Just order what you would ordinarily be in another helmet. Feb 25, 2014

Ethan L: I am male and bought this helmet. I originally got a previous shark in a Medium (M) mostly cause I fit most M as an oval. However, Sharks tend to be a bit bigger and the Small (S) fit right for me. My circumference is about 61cm 24 inches. Mar 2, 2014

A shopper asked: Dude, love the Shark Helmet brand I have been waiting for two years to get one here in the US. I checked them out in France and thought the graphics were RAD. However, one thing you forgot on the video is the whole reason for the Vision R the extra degrees of vision you get with the helmet. Also the 4mm thing shield.
