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

Features:

  • Super Light Weight Carbon/Aramid Fiber shell
  • ~4.5 dB(A) quieter than the standard Race-R Pro in wind tunnel testing
  • Sharktooth-ready
  • 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
  • Breath guard with new attachment system
  • Chin curtain
  • ECE 22.05 and DOT approved

i love the helmet. i have had it for a couple years now. the only issue was the fitting. my head is not a circle and thats what this helmet fits better too. yet it is still comfy but after a long ride my forehead becomes tire at the two pressure points. when buying this helmet make sure of your head shape because that plays a huge factor in fit and comfortability.

Gotta protect the melon! Enjoy a stylish, comfortable helmet while you do so.

I was looking for a high quality helmet and was in between the RF-1200 and Arai Corsair V. I eventually ended up with the Shark Race-R Pro for their Eyeglasses feature.
Jason N on Mar 23, 2015
I selected this product because of the high level security that this one offers (sharp web site source)

Hi, what are the differences between the Race R Pro and the Race R Pro Carbon ?
A shopper on Sep 8, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The Carbon is suppose to be lighter by about 4oz or ~100g. I do not own a Race R Pro so the accutal wieght difference I can not verify. I will say that the Race R Pro Carbon is about 200g heavier than a RSR2 V1.
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.
Can a person switch out the visor for one with detents?
A shopper on May 18, 2014
I am looking to replace 1 or two RSR2 helmets. Lets just say one has saved my noggin and I am using the second. I like to switch helmets (not wear the same one everyday/or after getting caught in the rain). Is the fit pretty much the same because I wear an XL in the RSR2? Also is the extra $50.00 worth it between the Pro and Pro Carbon. Last thing, I am not a racer/knee dragger. I am a touring rider and rides everyday rain or shine. So on the hot days, does this helmet create the airflow the RSR2 does? I love the opening at the top of the RSR2. I know one may think this helmet does not fit my purpose; however, I like the design protection that is in the helmet. Thanks!
A shopper on May 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This a very high quality helmet. I have the carbon version and consequently it is very light. It is one of the quietest helmets I have owned. It is very comfortable, although I did have to purchase some thinner cheek pads so my face wasn't so squished up. The neck opening is a tight squeeze through the padding but, once you're in, it is very comfortable. The bamboo lining is very nice and seems to be of a very good standard. The visor is the most substantial I have ever had. I believe it's about 4mm thick!
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(?)
Can the visor be locked open?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not really. Its reasonably secure and the hinge is pretty tight (its adjustable) but a good sharp nod will close it
Does Shark still use the small shell up to medium, and then the large shell for large and above?
Miles T on Jul 7, 2017
I want to know exactly what this helmet weighs ?
Chris E on Mar 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 3.1 lb vs 3.6 arai corsair
