Good for glasses

As a glasses wearer this is the best helmet for comfort and ease of getting glasses on and off I have ever had. Also the helmet ticks all the boxes.

Its no Shoei

Not exactly happy with this lid, the first one sent out had a manufacturing fault, that was replaced immediately without question by Sportbikeshop. The second one arrived without any apparent fault but once I used it on the bike its much noisier than my previous lid,( a Shoe GT Air ), and it whistles a lot, so much so that the first time out I thought someone was peeping a horn at me from behind, ( I'm not joking ). So I haven't even had the lid 2 weeks and I'd thought I'd address the noise by adjusting the visor, as I did this ( per the user guide ) part of the visor hinge retaining coverplate broke off, which means the I'm probably going to loose the screw cover disc the first time it gets a bit of mph on the bike. Ill be approaching Sportsbikeshop on Monday and looking for a full refund, and will be going straight back to Shoei...

Really far

I've only had a chance to wear it for 30 miles so I can review my experience so far. First impressions are that the lid looks amazing. The carbon finish is the nuts. It's super lightweight and build quality feels good. When I measured my head as suggested on Shark website I should have ordered a size L but I had tried it on in a shop previously and found an XL to be a better fit. They do say that is just a guide and the shape of your head makes a difference to fit, not just circumference. When riding it feels very comfortable and quiet. The aerodynamics seem perfect although when I look down while riding the seems to be some turbulence and wind noise. Not that you will be doing that much but will see how it goes with more use. Over all very happy so far.

This helmet is a vast improvement on my Shark Vision R. It feels so light in comparison and the overall fit and feel are brilliant. Highly recommended.

A nice upgrade

My previous helmet was a relatively budget HJC. This is clearly another level, but I will offer my personal opinion of the Spartan. It is lightweight, great looking, and has comfortable padding. Don't let the lack of vents fool you, there is a ton of airflow in this helmet, almost too much. It is quite loud, earplugs are not recommended, they are required. The fit isn't quite ideal for my headshape. I think a rounder shape would suit me better (Arai), as this feels a bit too long and narrow, with the breath guard being a bit too far away from my mouth / nose and the cheek pads being a bit snug. The fit does feel better than the Skwal which I tried on in store, but that was the extent of the Shark range I tried before buying. That said, it is still very comfortable and has a great set of features. Ideally, as with all helmets, try before you buy. But even if you can't SBS will sort you out as they have for me with other products. Overall, I'm happy with this helmet and SBS is great as always.

Better than GT-Air!

For perspective - I also have a Shoei GT Air. Is the Spartan as well made as the GT-Air? No, definitely not got the attention to details - but is more than £100 cheaper. Is it quieter than a GT Air? Yes, for me. There is a much tighter fit under the chin, cheeks and neck roll such that I don't get the howling wind like I do on the GT-Air. (I do wear earplugs too). There are some random whistles which the GT-Air might have too but are drowned out by the howling noise. I did adjust the visor on the Spartan slightly for a tighter fit too. Who would it suit? It seems well developed for Naked bikes (e.g. Monster / R Nine T) as in free air the noise control is very good, but gets noisier when turbulent - i.e. ducking down. The visor works better for coverage than the GT-Air as it comes all the way down (and looks cool) but even in summer I can see a little fogging on the bottom edge from heaving breaths at slow speeds so might be an issue in cold weather. The GT-Air sun visor fogs in winter. Fit: I take a L in Shoei and L on the Spartan is equally comfortably on the top of the head (similar head shape?) but much tighter on the cheeks - almost too tight when new. But this keeps it quiet. Looks: Looks awesome without the need for tinted visor. I would definitely get another and only caveat is wait to see winter performance on sun visor.

New quality helmet

Very good quality helmet. Good fit and very comfy. It is also very light and has the best field of vision of any helmet I have had before. The sun visor is very good and with the Pinlock fitted to clear visor have no problem with misting. I found all the vents and the sun visor easy to use with a gloved hand. Only minor thing as has been said before, there is a slight whistle but with ear plugs this is not a problem. Thanks to Sportsbikeshop for your excellent service, will be coming back again, CHEERS.

Qualty helmet

Smart helmet. Carbon fibre looks great. Really light and comfortable once on. Bit of a squeeze to get my head in but I am between sizes and went for the smaller helmet. There is a whistle at speed even with the vents closed. Otherwise I'm really happy with it so far. Thanks.

Good quality and lightweight

Good quality helmet, with excellent field of vision, aerodynamics, weight and pinlock. Visor works well. Opening to get your head in is quite small, so disrupts any neck buffs a little. Folding chin curtain is a nice touch. Vents and sun visor can be tricky to use while riding.
