Shark Skwal 2 Sykes Replica - Matt Black / White / Orange
Customer Product Reviews
Bright and brilliant
This helmet is wicked. It's light and quiet. Both much better that then other helmets I've used in this price range. The added facility of the led lighting gives an additional visual aid to other drivers to see you after dark. I would definitely recommend.
Not had it too long. Took a couple of days to break in but really comfortable now. Doesn't feel heavy on the head and the vents keep things from getting too stuffy. Chin strap is nicely padded and feels secure. Overall I'm very pleased and good service from SBS
Not 100% happy
So far I'm far from 100% happy with this helmet. Design and looks are good and I like the LED lights though unsure how often I will use them. After just one use the helmet developed a rattle which transpired to be the air vent opener latch was loose. It went back to SBS then back to Shark. 2 weeks later it's back repaired. The mouth vent is weak and blows shut at around 35mph so poor quality in my opinion. The visor gives ok visibility but only closes in clicks of approx 4 positions so it's either open quite wide or shut. My old Shoei you could leave just a few mm open to allow airflow. Sun visor is good addition and generally helmet padding is comfortable. I'm just not very convinced on the quality now after the issues.......
First Shark lid
First time I've even worn Shark and I wasn't disappointed! Had Arai, XLite, HJC and AGV before and this feels top quality! Great finish and feel and VERY quiet on the bike. Great price although good to note that I needed to drop a size from what I've worn in every other brand to get the right fit so try for size and fit before you buy. You won't be disappointed!!
An upgrade for me!
This lid is great, it's well made, comfortable and looks good. I really like the LED safety feature too, its bright. I upgraded from a Shark S700 and the difference is like night and day. From the way the visor closes to the ventilation of the helmet is just so much better. I also like how the Skwal 2 internals have been made to fir the Shark bluetooth system which I will be purchasing soon. I've read that others have commented about wind noise whilst riding at speed, I haven't really experienced this.. perhaps because I ride a naked machine as opposed to a sport bike and my head position is different? An excellent consumer experience with SBS as per usual, speedy delivery and very well packaged. The lowest price I could find on the internet too. All in all I'm very pleased with the helmet!
Lovely, stylish helmet
The guy who helped me try on various helmets was amazingly helpful, and after finding this helmet we knew it was the one! Perfect fit, comfortable padding on the inside, easy to remove when needed with the fast release mechanism... and the LED lights are an awesome bonus! Very happy with this helmet, and the excellent customer service we received in the Kirton branch!
Amazing price and quality!!
This helmet is definitely worth the money! The design is great, the interior is so soft and full making you feel really comfortable and secure. I love the interior sunglasses and the lights who work perfectly only need to charge for about 20 mins. Would definitely recommend this!!
Sharp looking Shark
Shark never fail to let me down. My first choice in helmet. Now with LED lights, what more could I ask for? Easy to charge it up, eyecstching design, comfortable and by far the best lid I've bought to date at a reasonable price.
Comfy, warm and clear
Excellent helmet, a little tight on the cheeks at first but soon lose s up a little, pinlock excellent in even the worst conditions. Lights work very well helping with being visible to other road users at night. Overall, an excellent helmet.
Comfortable and stylish, with neat extra features
Couldn't be more pleased with the Shark Skwal 2 Flynn. No period of adjustment needed, just fit perfectly out of the box. Lights are very bright and can be turned on solid or flashing as desired. Integrated shade insert drops and lifts smoothly, too. Futuristic, Tron-style aesthetic also looks killer.
Biased ***** good helmet
OK I have the Skwal original in white, its a great helmet. This is a great helmet but sometimes feels tight on the cheeks. it gets easier to use with every ride though. Te lights are running day lights white and easy to charge. The visor has a good seal and I get very little wind creeping in however the chin curtain is thin and I always buy some sticky backed felt and cut to shape to stick two the chin curtain this gets that issue out the way. The old chin curtain fitted very poorly I am glad to say the newer ones are much better fitting. The internal sun visor on these is great nearly blocking excess sun completely off your face. Wind noise is not OK but I am fussy when it comes to wind noise. Still I had a Schubert and thought that was louder. This series 2 is more comfortable than the original because the rear cutaway allows more freedom of movement when doing your blind spot checks. These are real value for money as I have spent double on a helmet and prefer the Shark Skwals. I'd give it 5 stars but nothings perfect.
