Verified Customer Reviews for Shark Spartan Carbon
Wanted a carbon fibre crash helmet for a long time. My Simpson helmet was one I wanted, but turned out to be very noisy, and fastening the DD style strap is short and fiddly to use. The Shark carbon is an aesthetic delight, light and feels quality. The fastening strap is slightly longer so easier to use with arthritic fingers. The DD style fastening might be regarded as the safest but not my favourite, I much prefer the seatbelt style fastener that was popular a few years ago.
My first ride was in horrible cold, wet conditions. The lid is very quiet and peripheral vision good. The retractable chin guard was a pleasant surprise although it seems too eager to retract. The internal visor is better than on the Simpson, although the mechanism isn't easy to locate whilst riding. I also think the visor tab is too small, But I guess I will adjust to both these issues with use. The other issue I noticed straight away in cold weather are the draught blowing up the side of my face/ears, necessitating the use of snood to keep my ears warm! However, in summer this will be an advantage...lol Overall, and given the massive end of season discount, I am pleased with this helmet.
So, I'm a Shoei man through and through after moving from Shark a few years back. But, my face is "between sizes" and an impending trip to Spain means I needed a good lid at a reasonable price.
I bought the Shark Spartan Carbon and was instantly impressed with the quality. It's light, has fantastic visibility and the liner is super plush.
I'm not a fan of the old school DD ring but it's safe and a small price to pay for such a nice lid.
The cheek pads are like having your head in a vice so I bought replacements in a smaller size from SBS who worked their usual magic.
Great lid, best prices around and SBS are just always outstanding to buy from
Great Service from Sportsbikeshop, product was great. I now buy all my motorbike gear from them
Fantastic Helmet, quiet, light, unobtrusive,
Service from sbs on point as usual,
Why go anywhere else when the price and service are this good?
Just grabbed myself this Light weight carbon shark after trying a few other branded helmets out. The SBS staff super helpful as usual, because of this I ended up with the shark helmet. Ended up being the best fitting & best quality. Everything is quality. Love the visor, the internal visor, the feel, the weight, the quality and the ease of fitting intercoms
To finish- the price is not even questionable is it totally bang for buck bargain! Recommended & recommend using try on before you buy feature!
What a great helmet, at first wear it feels as though the jaws of Cerberus himself are clamping your cheeks together, but throw that pup a few bones and after a couple of rides this thing beds in more than Katy Price on page 3.
Value for money - you bet.
Comfortable - after about 6 hours and a sitting of tantric face stretches!
Shark spartan carbon helmet looks good and feels very comfortable.
The sun visor is one of the best I've used Slightly darker than previous helmet .
Recently fitted shark Bluetooth system fitted perfectly to the helmet with a recess for the battery. Taking the Liner out and repacking was easy.
The only downside is the helmet is a little drafty but perfect for summer use.
Thanks again sportsbikeshop try before you buy worked for me.
Chose this helmet as it matched my Ducati. Had Shoei previously & never owned a Shark product. It is very light, the visor is easy to operate, the drop down visor comes down without leaving big gap at bottom. Paint finish very good. As my bike is streetfighter (no fairing) earplugs are a must. I was concerned this wouldn't match my Shoei but I am very pleased with my purchase.
Genuinely Lightweight and looks fantastic. I usually take a size XL in Shoei but XL was a bit tight so went for the XXL and it's a perfect fit. Seems every bit as well made as a Shoei.
Great price for a great Helmet and usual Fantastic service from SBS.
Good quality helmet. I previously had a Shark helmet and was pleased with as found they fit well. This one appears a little quieter than the previous.
Very comfortable, and light compared to others I can turn my head a lot better, than my old flip up also has better vision with a all round pin lock which is included,
As yet I can't fault it.
Great product and excellent attentive service from David in Reading who took me through 4 or so different helmets. SBS know their stuff and give you their time. Brilliant
Great looking helmet and the free race visor with pinlock was a bonus. I find Shark helmets to be a perfect and it helps that they are designed to accommodate glasses. Recommended!
This helmet has been amazing so far, so much lighter then my old HJC helmet, the ventilation system and integrated sunvisor systems are also far superior, Yes this was a bit more expensive, but there is a lot more that you get, for that extra money. Its an extremely comfortable helmet even when squashing your face at the beginning as the padding is nice and soft. The only thing I haven't had chance to do yet is get my helmet cam and microphone setup mounted, but either way I have no worries about it not fitting perfectly.
Originally bought a bell srt flip. Unfortunately the visor mechanism failed on it straight away.It sent it back and I was refunded straight away with a credit for the full amount.
I went in store to leeds and bought this instead..
I was able to browse in peace and stafg were very helpful with trying on helmets. Opted for this and im very happy with it.
There's no need to shop anywhere else for motorcycle apparel. 5*
Really happy with the helmet, light (neck problems) well made and as ever exposed carbon looks great, clear and dark visor, and pinlock in the box which is excellent, also like the fact a comma unit can fit inside the helmet with a small control outside, should mean less wind blast. As usual sports bike shop knocked it out the park with their usual awesome delivery.
Amazing helmet comfortable fit very light weight would recommend
Tried on loads of helmets tried on all the carbon ones in the shop for me shark was most comfortable and best fitting .
