Great piece of kit
Converted to Shark 3 years ago and was very impressed. So much so bought another in carbon. Really light, comfortable, even when wearing glasses. My only gripe is I wish Shark would colour code the reflective stickers for traveling abroad. The lid itself is perfect.
First non-Shoei helmet I've purchased in about 15 years. This was to replace my well used and loved GT-Air that's now 5 years old. I find the fit very comfortable, it's no noisier, the venting is fine, I'd say the visor quality is better optically, I like the movable chin curtain though it can be a bit awkward to ensure it stays in place. It has a better sharp rating too. The quality is great and the carbon finish is superb. Downsides are the drop down visor slider is much less convenient than on the GT-air. Final kicker is it was significantly cheaper than the Shoei.
Shark Spartan Carbon Skin. Excellent bit of kit!
Just purchased the Shark spartan carbon skin,not only does the helmet look the part but safety wise, the helmet is what you would come to expect from Shark's premium lids. Maxi vision pinlock and visor are excellent. Helmet lining is extremely comfy. Read some reviews about windnoise being an issue but can honestly say it isnt bad at all, especially riding naked sports. Couldnt ask for more. To top it all off the usual great customer service from sportbike shop. Has made buying the helmet a positive experience. This was my 2nd helemet I've purchased from them and I wouldnt go anywhere else. I recommend every chance I get.
Quality at a sensible price
I swapped from a Shoei helmet to a Shark and have been impressed with the dynamics of this helmet. Riding a naked bike there was a lot of upward force with the Shoei. Greatly reduced with the Shark. The sun visor is another plus point. Only criticism is the nose guard comes out too easily if you catch it.
Apart from being a gorgeous looking helmet it is also very light and quite quiet Above 55 in a half tuck however there's a very loud buzzing like sound, with my bike a half tuck means that half of my head is protected from wind but the top half isn't, if I sit up or lean all the way down the noise completely goes away It feels of great quality and I believe it's money well spent I have come from a £100 helmet though so this is quite a bit more expensive Reasons for not 5 star is a noise above 55 when in a half tuck and the fact I've not extensively worn it yet
This is my first ever non Shoei lid, my last one being the GT Air which I have had for 7 years, so it was a difficult choice for me to change but I'm not sorry I did. For a start this is a jump up on safety rating and I got it on an offer that made it half the price of the Shoei. The internal visor is way better too. If I'm honest it lacks a little bit of refinement e.g. the visor doesn't seal first time every time, it tends to leave a slight gap on the right hand side, but this is rectified by a quick tap on the visor. All in all I'm more than happy to put up with this niggle for the better safety rating and drastic cost saving. Great lid!
Shark Spartan Carbon Helmet
Great service as usual from Sportsbikeshop. Received the helmet within a couple of days of ordering. Very light weight and quiet when doing motorway speeds. I got a free dark visor as part of the deal which makes the helmet look cool.
Black & red and Carbon
The Medium is a bit tighter than my last Shark but is very comfortable when on. The D Rings are new to me as my last had the Quick Release option. I find them a little cumbersome as I have not used them for a long time. The internal fitting clear Anti Fog fitting on the Pinlocks works
Superb bit of kit
Lightweight, relatively quiet good de-misting. A good fit but i ordered a medium instead of my usual large as i had heard these helmets come up big. Seems to be well made D rings are a bit fiddly but you get used to that
Great helmet, nice features
Nice recessed visor. Sits pinlock in nicely. Good air vents. Great for glasses wearers. Neat inner sun visor, can adjust to any position. Bit noisy compared to my old shoei. Still, a great helmet, especially as so light.
This is my 3rd shark helmet now, and I must admit I'm still impressed with them. My other half recently had a bad crash on her bike and the helmet took a big impact, she suffered from no head injuries and the helmet was badly damaged. That to me alone is a good reason to buy this brand! I've tried a few helmets over the years, but really like the fit of these, not sure if I have an odd shaped head? The integral sun visor is a must for me and is always a handy addition. I also run Bluetooth headsets, which seem to fit well even with using a boom mic. As for the design, carbon looks amazing.
Great quality helmet from shark. A very light weight helmet. Great internal sun visor that covers your face completely. Easy snap on visor that takes seconds to change with no fuss. Also the visor opens and closes very easily and smoothly. No strength required. Gray helmet at a great price. I also got the dark visor which just makes the helmet look sweet!!
