Shark D-Skwal Fogarty Replica - Red / Blue
Customer Product Reviews
Quality helmet in feel and looks
Both me and the fiance have this helmet in different colours, find them very comfortable with nice features for the sunvisor and vents. Removable interior is straight forward to remove for intercom fitment, nicely thought out pockets for the speakers to fit into and cut out for the wiring to feed through.
Comfortable, stylish, impressed
Bought for my partner as a replacement. Loves the drop down sun visor and colour, a great improvement to comfort over her old S600. We fitted our intercom unit and there are cutouts for ear speakers in the foam for these and plenty of room for a microphone up front. Very versatile, ergonomic and recommended!
Good lid for the money
Bought this lid after a visit to SBS retail store - the staff there are brilliant there if you get a chance to go in instead of ordering online... The good - reasonable fit, Pinlock insert comes with lid, drop down visor is useful, black/orange colour a good match for my bike (KTM). The not so good - the lid lifts a bit at speed on a naked bike, the drop down visor is starting (after less than a month of wear) to discolour. Overall good value for money.
Good for the price
I done around 200 miles with this helmet. So can share just first impressions. Wwind noise its not bad but its not low. If you use ear plugs or headphones that's makes much better. Not impressed with strap. I more preferred double D. Inner sunvisor - fantastic. Easy to operate and it is dark. Helmet feels light and comfortably. I am between M-L size. So I gamble and get M size and its fit nice. Don't forger Shark helmets are more for oval head type. So if you have chance first try before you buy. I can't give for it 5 stars because of chin strap. I wish it was double D. Right now I do not trust it very much. 4,5 stars P.S. Thank you wife for nice birthday present.
Overall good helmet
This is my second helmet. Overall I've found it to be good. The internal sun visor is now a necessity for me after using it in this helmet and doesn't hit my glasses. The external visor doesn't feel as strong as my last helmet that cost a fraction of the price, however I feel less like I'm in a sort of bubble with this visor down than I did with my previous helmet which is good. The way you remove the visor is a bit tricky as it seems easy to snap the visor whilst removing it. There's no noticeable whistling whilst riding with the visor up or down and I find wind noise isn't too bad, especially with the visor down even at 60+mph although other people may find it a bit noisy at faster speeds. The Pinlock insert works well on the external visor but the internal visor can fog up a bit so it's worth buying some anti fog treatment to stop this happening. Usually I wear a Medium helmet but found a Medium in this too big so went to Small and it fitted well so it may be worth sizing down or trying it before buying it if possible.
Love this helmet. Was a little worried as my previous Shark Helmet had a sun visor that would hit my glasses when I popped it down. But this helmet doesn't do that. Very comfortable to wear. Only issue is the description of the colouration. The pink pearlescent colour reflects light as aqua. Not a problem as it is still very attractive, just surprising.
If I could rate this better I would. This is an amazing company, the things I brought came in top quality with great and quick delivery. I am amazed by the products they sell, would definitely recommend this is my number one place to shop for my gear. I will continue to shop here, amazing 10/10.
I bought the Shark D-Skwal Hiwo - Black / Orange helmet as a replacement to a previous Shark helmet. I am very pleased with the fit and feel of the helmet. It is snug, secure and even has plenty of space to accommodate my glasses! It feels well vented while riding and I have not experienced any issues with the visor fogging up even on cooler wet days. The black and orange combo is a great look in my opinion and adds to the style of the helmet. The flip down sun visor is always an added bonus for those days where the sun is shining in your eyes. Overall a very good helmet and I would highly recommend!
Overall it good, wasn't pleasantly surprised
Overall I like it, the interior is the best feature of this helmet, very plush with nice materials, however I feel the vents let it down, seem quite cheap and brittle, and could do with either more or bigger ones, airflow seems a little scarce. But as an entry helmet it does all you can ask. Quick release buckle is a bonus. If you're planning to use this often I'd spent a little more and get the next model up.
Fantastic bit of kit...
Great lid for a great price. Wind noise very low, comfortable to wear and has easy fit for glasses wearers like myself. The drop down sunvisor is particularly good, not tried the Pinlock yet but I'm sure it will be just as good as the rest of the helmet.
