Shark Race-R Pro Carbon Fiber Helmet
The new, high-end SHARK Race-R Pro Carbon is constructed from carbon/aramid fibers, was initially developed for Shark's top level racers: Moto GP, WSBK, Moto 2…. Can you imagine the level of requirement these riders have? Shark therefore had to ensure top level performance, giving the utmost importance to functionality and ergonomics: lightness, stability, comfort, precision and aerodynamics. Because the requirement from top racers is two-fold: safety and leading-edge technology. Shark must protect in critical situations, and must also contribute to their riding performance. The Shark Race-R Pro Carbon gives you the same level of excellence as it does to elite riders.
Shark's mantra is simple, "Just race! We care about the rest."
The Race Pro-R is Shark's new high end composite fiber helmet. Totally designed through a reverse engineering process, the Race-R Pro Carbon has been developed from technical data as close as possible from human head specifications. Shark has therefore taken into account your own constraints before considering its own. From the very first track tests, riders have acknowledged its stability, even above 300 km/h, its comfort and the precision of the wide angle vision field as well as its optical distortion-free shield.
"The Race R PRO concentrates all what I am looking for in a helmet when riding my bike. In fact, it contributes to my riding performance." Randy de Puniet, June 22nd, 2012.
Thanks to wind tunnel testing, Shark has minimized unpleasant cyclonic airflows on the Race R Pro by adding a double blade spoiler. Result = Stability. The Race R Pro ventilation system is a synthesis of the most efficient ventilation:
- 4 air scoops: chin (with integrated anti-pollution air filter) + front + 2 top vents
- 7 extractors
- 3 possible positions: closed, intermediate, fully open
- Optimization of venturi effect thanks to Formula1 wind tunnel testing
- Super Light Weight Carbon/Aramid Fiber shell
- ~4.5 dB(A) quieter than the standard Race-R Pro in wind tunnel testing
- Shark Easy Fit glasses system offers wearers a comfort lining which has a pre-ﬁtted system to accommodate all types of glasses
- Spoiler CFD
- 2 shell sizes
- Double D chin strap
- Magnetic chin strap end
- 4 anchor points for main shield
- 4 air flow points with optimized venturi efficiency
- Shield has variable density: minimum thickness 3mm, maximum thickness 4.25mm, with new anti-scratch/anti-fog coating
- Thermo shaped comfort lining
- Removable and washable antibacterial liner
- Cheek pads are interchangeable for custom fit
- Neck roll with neoprene sections for elasticity and water resistance

Reviews & Questions
Huge improvement in the quality of the liner material. It feels infcredibly plush and wicks sweat more effectively. It also looks nicer with the offset color they used in there. I will say that the cheek pads on this seem slightly fuller than the previous, which shouldn't be a problem unless you have a bigger face. But they have different sizes that you can buy from Revzilla I think.
Weight. It isn't a huge savings, but it is enough to make a difference at race pace. Not sure if the new compound they use for the shell does anything different than the previous in the way of protection, but it has a 5Star Sharp rating....so I'm good with that.
Lastly, the look of the thing. It is just plain sexy in the matte Black with Carbon inlay. Lots of compliments.
I love this helmet for its fit, comfort, venting, aero, looks, and protectivity. You should spend a little extra coin to protect your brains and look good. They aren't mutually exclusive ya know.
Not really a fair comparison due to the price difference, but this helmet is just so much better than my old Scorpion EXO-1100. After riding for years with mid to lower end helmets, this thing is hardly noticeable on my head. I've only went on a few rides now so can't really comment on durability or if it maintains the nice fit but as far as noise/weight/fit go at the moment I give them all a 5/5.
Wide visibility and no half lock on the visor which I definitely prefer since I normally all the way up or fully shut.
The magnet strap is a bit hard to lock, but my biggest disappointment was the the helmet just seem as it has no vents.
I do have some issues with Shark as a company. First, they only have 1 authorized retailer in the US and it's in TX. I would have liked to had the chance to try one on without having to order it and then deal with a return. Second, they only imported half of their available graphics for this helmet to the US. If you buy the same exact helmet from an overseas merchant, you don't get a US DOT sticker. Both issues seem to suggest that Shark isn't very committed to the US market. They've been around forever. They support major race teams. But they could do more to win us over.
There is a difference between the neck roll on the 2012 vs the 2013 models though. The 2013 models are said to be not as loud as the 2012 models.
Hopefully I'll have the time for a nice write up on this helmet soon.
The airflow is good and keeps the visor clear in cold weather. What do you call hot? Here in Australia it regularly gets to over 110F, and I found that it started to get a little uncomfortable at anything less than freeway speed. At high speed the helmet performs marvellously in both airflow and stability through the wind blast. Apart from the occasional heat wave this is my favourite helmet in my small arsenal. As comparison, my other helmets are a Shoei xr1100 and a HJC ac12(?)
