Shark Evo-One Priya - Matt Black / Anthracite
Customer Product Reviews
One of the best
Love everything about it, from the open face and sun shield to the full face. Only problem, no visor insert in box, Sportsbikeshop sent a replacement great ! Then I came to fit it and there was one already fitted but it had scratches on the insert, on removing the protective film found finger prints on visor not happy over this but helmet is great 5 stars for the helmet.
Adequate, but not great
The helmet is comfortable and the flip up mechanism is very simple on the move. But, on switching back to full face on the move, the mechanism does not lock into place easily and seems to need 2 hands. This may loosen up and become easier with wear.The helmet is quite heavy and noisy. I've also noticed what seems to be a blind spot too when looking over my shoulder. I've had numerous helmets in the past and never noticed this previously, but it feels like I need to turn that few degrees further for a decent look behind. So, overall, in my view, quite a high price for not such great quality. Sportsbikeshop service was good.
Great helmet, much lighter and comfortable than my other flip up helmet. The chin bar is innovative and I'm looking forward to wearing it when the weather improves. Great service from the shop, came quickly. Got a bargain with the discounted price.
Lovely bit of kit
I've resisted having a 'flip' or convertible helmet, as I've always considered them to be a bit too much of a compromise. Yes, you get the versatility, but at the cost of extra weight and complexity. The Shark (Evo-One) is the first that's changed my mind. It's pretty light (okay, not as light as a top-line full-face helmet, but light enough that it's not causing me fatigue) and all the slides and vents are easy enough to operate while on the move (I've known 'flip' helmets where you almost had to fight with them, at the side of the road, to get it back into position). I really like that the chin-bar mechanism keeps itself close / tucked in, especially when pulled back (no sitting up in the breeze), so you can genuinely ride as a 'full face' or 'open face' configuration. The chin vent is another easy operation (and works well) and I really like the convenience of the slide-down sun visor. My only gripes are the chin strap (personally, I prefer an older fashioned D-Ring) and you get the option to fit a Pinlock, but it's not included in the box. Other than that, I really like it and have never been so glad to move away from a traditional full-face lid.
My new purchase, very impressed with product
Not had a chance to try the helmet yet due to appalling weather here in the the islands. Haven't been able to ride. But looking forward to trying it out at the first opportunity. Very pleased with the product so far.
Superbly well thought out helmet
Not the quietest helmet but having the ability to quickly flip up the front is worth it. Can easily convert on the move and love the ratchet strap. Ordered the Medium first but exchanged very quickly for the Small. Had to remove some padding from the cheekpads to make it more comfortable. Sportsbikeshop service is second to none.
An amazing peice of gear
Absolutely smashing helmet. Really easy to use on and a really nice solid construction. Wind noise is next to non traveling at 60mph. Fantastic visibility and the anti-fog visor works really well. Super easy to fit as well. Fit is nice as well. Padding is to a good quality and easy to remove if required. Would definitely recommend.
The Evo-One is noticeably quieter than my Caberg Duke, much more comfortable to wear. The flip mechanism is just brilliant. I've taken to riding open-faced, popping the chin bar down for motorways and rain. I'm riding down to Spain next week and this lid will be perfect.
So I absolutely love this helmet, it's so comfy and soft inside and SO quiet I almost don't need earplugs. I love how versatile it is and that when you open it, the thing doesn't sit on top of your head making you look like a pizza delivery man. The only thing I didn't love is that it the finish didn't feel like it was as good quality as my old AGV, for example. Feels more flimsy and somehow cheaper despite being twice as expensive. However, overall I'm VERY happy with this purchase and the very quick and professional delivery from sportsbikeshop.
Best price around, quick and easy ordering. Polite and efficient staff when phoned for query. Excellent delivery with downloadable app which showed exactly where driver was. Product was very well packaged and in excellent condition. I will use you again for my next purchase, thank you.
