Shark Skwal 2 Flynn - Black / Yellow / Anthracite
Customer Product Reviews
Great Helmet !
I have owned previously the Skwal 1 by Shark, it's a good helment at a great price. The Skwal 2 is even better, I like the looks, but more importantly it is comfortable and has the all important drop down internal sun visor. I genuinely don't know why everyone doesn't want this feature. You would never drive a car without a sun visor. I also like the simple ratchet type fastener, much easier than double d ring type. The flashing lights feature is a bit of a gimmick, fun, but you probably won't use it. Great value, easy to use lid.
Snug Helmet with added pinlock
This helmet is pretty fancy tbh, really good styling and its A LOT greyer than in the pictures. Comfortable and not a great deal of wind noise. The pinlock is great but don't be a dumba$$ like me and forget to take the protective film off the visor insert. Utter twadger
My first Shark helmet, really good fit, light & comfortable. Love the graphics & the LED lights are a bonus. Good built in sunscreen which is easily operated, 7 the Pinlock insert is really effective keeping the visor clear in all weathers. No issues with noise & the vents work really well. As always great service from Sportbikeshop.
Made the right decision going from medium to small. Perfect nice comfy tight fit. I have a super sports configured bike and the visual range through the visor is spot on. I have however put a strip of electricians tape at the top of the visor, to stop late evening sun glare. I could have done without the flashing lights. The rear flashing white lights are illegal in England. I'm considering painting the rear ones with my wife's red nail varnish. To be honest I don't think I will ever use them. Before I purchased this lid I read the reviews and they certainly helped.
I'm not an experienced rider but I got the Skwal 2 due to it's 4* SHARP rating, general look and price tag. Not to mention the added LED features, which to give added visibility! I went for the Matt grey which is darker than the pictures but I prefer that. Overall it's a good comfortable helmet some wind noise over 60 but not horrendous, I don't wear earplugs and it's quieter than other more expensive helmets. I think for the price, getting a spare visor, tinted visor and the pin lock insert is included the Skawl 2 is a very good entry level helmet
Very comfortable if you buy the right size. Not loose at all and gives a good sense of protection. LED system a little underwhelming but I've yet to see it in the night. Good for mounting action cameras with a curved mount. Great for glasses wearers as the grooves internally help a lot. Fits speakers internally under the foam. Came with a race & clear visor with pin lock included for me, pinlock works a charm and sits flush with the visor. Not too much noticeable noise when at higher speeds if using speakers but a small wind sound does come through. Got it on offer at 180 quid and I have no complaints.
Another winner from Shark!
I have always used Shark as my noggin fits them well. This is an upgrade from my S900 that was getting a bit stinky. First impressions after a couple of long trips is that it is quieter than my previous and that the vents work much better, the larger pinlock that comes with it is a big improvement. Was not sure about the LED's but after using it on the M62 at dark o clock in the rain I did feel it made me a bit more visible so that can only be a good thing, would recommend it does what it says on the tin looks good and is good value for money!
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.......
