Shark S900 Dual Special Edition - Matt Black
Customer Product Reviews
A solid upgrade
I upgraded from the s700 and I am really happy I did. The fit was spot on with this one with the s700 even at the correct size it felt like there was a little to much room either side of my face, I love the internal visor for the little sun we get here in dublin. Great helmet.
Excellent value for money
Bought to replace aged fliptops. Mate has Shark Evo and liked the fit / brand. I really wanted a full face so when this came up I read the reviews and as they were mostly 5 star, purchased. I am not disappointed. It fits really well and feels secure. The pinlock / anti-fog insert is an absolute must and wind noise at speed is considerable less than my fliptops. I can actually hear my Sena comms at 70mph. Sun visor has been used but unlike the pinlock is not anti-fog. So those autumn evenings when the sun is low you will need top open your visor a crack - but at least the visor is notched and stays in your chosen position. Overall excellent value for money!
Brilliant helmet, very good price.
Very good helmet, good price and very good service from sport bike shop.co.uk.. I see alot reviews saying that the wind noise is very bad, personally for me I don't get alot of wind noise with this helmet. The pinlock is brilliant.. Very nice helmet, looks awesome and feels very light..
Given the many 5 star reviews here on SBS I can't help but feel that my bad experience with this helmet is due to factors such as my height, head shape, riding position etc. but here is my review: The wind noise is extremely loud. I've never had a 'quiet' helmet but this is very bad - ear plugs essential. The air vents are completely ineffective given that there is excessive air entering the helmet with the visor fully closed. This can be eliminated by tucking in behind the bike's screen, however, in doing so my head is angled such that the edge of the pinlock insert is right in my line of sight restricting my view. Given the noise, turbulence and narrow visor view I find this helmet very distracting and as a result unsafe. A nice ornament but a useless helmet.
These are comfortable and a good fit. The pinlock system is good at keeping fog at bay, but at times the ventilation isn't great so I have to ride with my visor up occasionally. It has a built in dark lens which flips down via the silver button and protect from the sun, which is neat. At times the clasp can be tricky. Considering the price point this is a good helmet and a step up from my last one.
Comfortable but could be better
The helmet is very comfortable to wear and is nice and light but it has its faults. Firstly it is a lot noisier than my previous Shark Skwal and ear plugs are definitely required. The second problem is the ventilation. I have had the switches in both positions and there does not seem to be a difference to the air flow or lack of it.
Bought for my partner on the strength of owning one myself. Great looking, well designed and extremely well fitting lid. Sizing is accurate- probably suits a rounder head than narrow. Delivery was rapid and item was well packaged....as I've come to expect from Sportsbikeshop.
Good so far.
I've not used this helmet on a long trip but it feels comfy so far. The only other helmet that came close was a top brand costing £500.00., which admittedly was amazing however I don't fancy risking returning to my bike to find my pricey helmet gone. Service and delivery was good. I
