Second time lucky
29 June 2024 by Matt C
Unfortunately the first delivered helmet only lasted 40 minutes of use, chin bar locked in place. Contacted sports bike customer service and received no response back. Took faulty helmet to local shop an hour away where they took ok faulty helmet back and a new one ordered, happy with the help from shop staff. So second helmet has been in use for several hours and I'm really happy with it, nice fit, flip up chin bar option has been great last week whilst hot weather, Little noisy when down but love it so far

Very good lid.

Hi.

It fits as expected, comfy with a bit of wind noise.

Every thing works albeit the chin guard a bit plasticy.

The chin guard release took a bit of working out, but got there after a few goes.

I'm not dispointed with this lid, I'm sure it's the right choice for me.

Regards.

Although the helmet has a good fit, there is quite a lot of external noise created by air flow through and over the protruding air vents.
The helmet is very comfortable and also comes with additional sized cheek pads.

Bought the helmet to commute and tour. Good fit and very comfortable with added bonus of being glasses friendly. Excellent quality visor gives clear vision, the helmet is surprisingly quiet even when it is used in open face, used it for over 3k now and would definitely recommend

Shark Evo GT
19 December 2023 by Michael O
Whilst I have not ridden in this helmet yet, I am a long term user of the Shark Evo helmets and find the ability to transform to an open face helmet great in warm weather, particularly so on a continental tour. It also facilitates quick conversations whilst stationary due to traffic.
This helmet fits well, feels comfortable, (and also has replacement cheek pieces supplied) The operation of the latches feels positive and I am looking forward to riding in it when the weather improves.

Great!

Had this helmet for 2 years. It does the job and I absolutely love that it can be both a full face and a half face. It's pinlock ready (I can't remember if it came with a pinlock) so there's no fog to worry about. Although you'll probably need to replace the pinlock once a year depending how often you ride, I ride pretty much every day.

The only problem for me is that the visor essentially can only be either shut or open. There's a position where it can leave a bit of an air gap but if you hit a speed bump or just brake on your bike the visor will quickly fully shut so it cannot keep a semi-open position. So the only solution for that especially in the summer is to switch the helmet into half face. You'll have the visor fully down but because it'll be half face you'll have all the ventilation you need.

Also, I believe a proper full face helmet is a bit more noise proof that a hybrid helmet like this one but it's just a sacrifice you have to make if you're going for a hybrid helmet. Just make sure you've got some good earplugs.

Other than that this is still the helmet I'm using even after 2 years since I bought it.

Nice helmet
26 September 2023 by Graham B
The helmet is comfortable although the lining doesn't seem up to the same quality as my previous Shark helmets. Worn for a week in Scotland so far and OK. Took a fair amount of adjusting to get the comms system in a good position.

Very Pleased!

Purchased Shark EVO GT to replace my ageing Neotec.

Very comfortable and seems to have a better field of view. The flip over front is great for turning it into an open face lid for low speed riding in hot weather. Mechanism works very well once you get used to it. Drop down sun visor easy to use on the move. Airflow buttons on the front and inside the chin guard allow you to vary the airflow quite a lot. I would say it is better than the Neotec in this regard. Can't notice any difference in noise levels between this and the previous helmet, but I do have a big touring screen on my Tiger.

Would buy again.

Good not great

I've had an earlier evo before then bought a Shuberth c3, thought I'd try the new evo gt, it feels and looks very cheap compared to the c3 even though it was a £300 helmet, visor ratchet is tractor like not smooth But.. it is comfortable and the swing over chin bar is a winner apart from being stiff to bring back down, beware it is not a quiet helmet, less wind noise with chin up, if you want to ride alot with like an open face helmet then yes good purchase, if not buy a discounted C3 Pro.

Great helmet for me
02 June 2023 by Harvey S
Had the previous incarnation of this helmet, the Evo one 2 i think it was called
It worked for me so decided to go for the Evo GT as a replacement
This purchase was for a light grey gloss one which had issues with the chin vent. After a return, it couldn't be repaired or replaced so I went for the Matt anthracite one
Full marks to sportsbikeshop for the return. Painless
Turns out I like the darker colour better
I've been out and covered about 700 miles with the new helmet and find that it is plusher inside, not just because its new, it has a better lining
You also get a larger set of cheek pads - 30mm, with the 25mm fitted
Pinlock visor is present and the visor is easy to get on and off after 1st time
The weight is there due to its flip stuff over a full face but the benefits outweigh that extra weight and I don't really notice it
Vents do their job, everything works as it should
This would have got 5 stars but for Sharks horrible lining fitment for the main part.
To fit any comms you have to remove the head/neck lining. The 2 ends of the neck lining need to be bent into the body and then everything cajouled back in. It's not easy but it is secure once back and centered
The fact that the helmet is approved for both visor up and flipped is great, no matter your views, when it's really warm
Sunvisor was off its guide on one side when I received the helmet. Easy enough to get back in. Shark need to make the sunvisor mechanism as bit more robust

Shark high quality and truly versatile
28 May 2023 by Quentin T
Tried on and chosen with try before you buy at Reading shop. Brilliant staff assistance meant all the helmets were set out with all the time needed to try. Although heavier than most it is the quality which shines through. Plush lining, confidence inspiring clunks and clicks of the mechanism and a truly brilliant optical quality visor. Shark make quality helmets with high Sharp testing results and although this one is not tested it does not seem any lower build quality. Not cheap - more mid-range. Good for around town, but over 45mph with it open you need to tip your head forward a bit due to buffeting. Shut the chin bar and all is cosy again!

Used this helmet on the NC 500 this may. Found it to be very comfortable and lightweight. The chin bar flipping right over to the back is an excellent feature. Would highly recommend this for touring

Love it, but...
19 December 2022 by Mr S
I love the design of this crash helmet and it is the second iteration of this design that I have owned. The fit on the latest GT version, by comparison to the EVO-One that I had previously is slightly different. The chin bar is now much closer to my chin than previous, meaning that any microphone from an intercom needs very careful positioning. Other than that the helmet is great and this colour scheme is superb (IMO).

Flipping Great!

Not actually worn this on the bike yet but the overall impression is one of great quality and clever design. I currently wear an evo 3 and wanted the GT's ability to have a pinlock fitted for cold and foggy days.

Great Design - Fragile Flip Mechanism
30 November 2022 by Barry R
Bought for touring and chosen because I have a Carbon R Pro that is excellent, and:
1. The Evo will accommodate fitment of a SENA 50c really easily,
2. The flip front folds over the back of the helmet out of airstream when used as an open face.
Trouble is, having tried it at home, made sure fit etc were satisfactory and everything worked as it should I took it out on a trip……… and the flip-front mechanism jammed and refused to unlock when I got to my destination. On the very first trip!
Full marks to Sportsbikeshop who, as ever, were really helpful and offered to exchange or replace it immediately. Sadly I've gone for something else - the prospect of a repeat failure somewhere in Europe when touring just doesn't appeal. Shame because design wise it's ideal and in use I found it quiet, comfortable and, weight wise, absolutely fine.

2nd Shark Evo

2nd Shark flip front.
This helmet feels plusher than the Evo one 2 I had
I loved that helmet hopefully will feel the same for this one 3 years on
Only gripe is the front vent feel loose and flimsy. Had to swap the first one delivered as it was very loose, seems its the way they are
Sportsbike were excellent as usual
Style: Blank Grey
