Best lid I have ever had
Comfortable fit straight out of the box, I have used it everyday for the last three weeks and the fit is still snug and comfortable. I bought this helmet to wear in the summer because of the open face option. I love the fact that the visor comes down far enough so I don't get flies and insects battering my face when in the open face position. The chin guard is easy to operate even when moving, but I would recommend you practice opening and shutting the mechanism indoors before you attempt it when your riding. Overall a fantastic helmet good quality and well made. One last thing, I have a Shoei Neotec for winter riding and it is a Large size which fits me well. I found that I needed an XL when I ordered the Shark flip helmet because the Large size was too small. But it was no problem because Sportsbikeshop rose to the occasion as usual and exchanged the helmet with no issues. So to end I can honestly say that this is the best helmet I have ever bought and would recommend it to anyone.
Great helmet, arrived next day
This is my second Shark Carbon helmet and is as impressive as first i.e light comfortable and relatively quiet but this is more city friendly being convertible. It is really easy to change between full and open face and large visor keeps you comfortable at motorway speed even with chin flipped up also side visibility is improved over all other helmets I've had - service as usual was excellent.
Quality helmet and again top notch service
I had the non carbon one of these and loved it because of the full flip of chin bar. This was bought for my wife in XS as good price. Turns out she is only an XS in Aria ! The S was in the sale and the excellent service from Sportsbikeshop swapped it without it costing me anything.
Fantastic in hot weather, bad in rain
Bought a pair of these mainly to use touring in hot climates. Went to the Alps in July with temps up to 38 degrees. For this they are absolutely fantastic and would have got 5*. BUT, when it rained on the last 2 days the water pours in, not just leaks, but runs from inside the shell into the lining and inside the visor. I suspect it enters through the dark shade slider or air vent on the top. Not just bad luck on 1 helmet, it was same on both. The benefits in hot dry use means I won't send them back but beware of you want them to ride in rain a lot.
Better than the Evoline 1..as you'd expect
Bought to replace my much abused Evoline 1 Certainly lighter, but not as much as I expected . The cut outs for earpieces make fitting intercom a breeze. New 'visor' push function means no faffing with the visor before opening the front up. One click and up it all goes. Compared to a Roof helmet this is so good.
Great helmet very comfortable, and light. Fitted a headset easily and works great. Love the Flip up part, can be used open face or full helmet. Good sun visor as well. Would recommend this helmet and the great service from Sportsbikeshop and Shark.
Best helmet I have ever purchased
Good fit, very comfortable. Can be fitted with a head set as it has all the holes and groves for it to sit in helmet padding already. The open face whilst riding is a great feature. The drop down sun visor is cool - instant sun shade and easily retracted when you then ride into shaded areas. Robust mechanism and smart piece of kit. This helmet has one of the highest SHARP safety ratings for a flip up helmet.
Head now safe as can be and good service
Needed to replace my previous Evoline as was getting a bit old - the new Pro Carbon is so much lighter and improved movement for the chin guard is excellent. Don't think I could find a better helmet and at such a good price. Service from Sportsbikeshop was superb as others have said - arrived very well packaged within 24 hours. What more can you ask for.
Great helmet great service
This is a replacement for my previous Evoline 3 but went for the Carbon which is even lighter. An amazing helmet that is so versatile and the fact that it can be worn as an open face is really good. It was also easy to fit my Scala Rider as the lining pops out and the side walls have plenty of space to fit the unit. The service from Sportsbikeshop was amazing - best price around, ordered one day delivered early the next - what more could you ask for.
Awesome carbon flip lid
Recently purchased this helmet ready for a tour of the Alpine passes, it is by far the best flip helmet I've tried. The freedom to wear the helmet open face with the chin bar fully out the way is great. The carbon fibre shell is incredibly light considering the moving parts in the helmet and the mechanism is good and easy to operate. One word of warning though this helmet seems to size up slightly smaller around the front of the head compared to the standard Evoline series 3. After trying a large on in a shop I decided to order the carbon version but found it uncomfortably tight around the front of the head with little room in the pads in this area for give. I exchanged it for the XL, which was a painless process. As always Sportbikeshop excelled at customer service and delivery. The XL fits well and is if anything still slightly snug. Sorry I'm unable to comment on wind noise or performance on the road as I'm still wearing the helmet around the flat to ensure the fit is good enough for a few hours in the saddle at a time. Cheers SBS, great service.
Best helmet eveeeeer
This is as my titles the best helmet I have ever owned, and I have been biking for about 43 years so I remember not having to wear an helmet at all, this helmet is amazing,light, comfortable, fits so good, it actually fit to your head You can feel the quality as soon as you pick it up and even more when you put it on and does it look cool in either full face or with the chin flipped over, if I had to mark it out of 10 it would an 11,as I said at the beginning Best Helmet Ever,treat your self you won't be disappointed
