Love the look of this helmet...
How's it going so far?
Does yours allow the use of the visor and shield at the same time?
I believe earlier versions could not, but Shark have now rectified.
They even put out a kit so older models could be converted.
Would love to hear your (or anyone else's) thoughts on this helmet.

Cheers!

one word..... awesome..!!!!!
.. but you must buy the shark pinlock ready visor or get it thrown in (£60 Separate plus £30 pinlock)...which has a recess for the whole insert built into the clear visor so when its in...the inside of the visor is flush like there isnt one fitted.......get one...otherwise you will be steaming up every second with the non pinlock insert fitted!!
I tried drilling the std visor and fitting pins.... didnt work... so bought additional shark pinlock ready visor. (should be std in my opinion)
mine came without the adapter for option of visor and peak...so emailed the company they sent the adapter kit free of charge to me... fitted in minutes.... my Peak is on all the time.... much less buffeting than without.... love it with the low sun....AND the flip down tinted inner visor as well...... comes with goggles....which ive not tried.. but will when the weather improves... i will
I expected that with the peak fitted i would get head snapping back at speed... but no..its very well designed... it is great!
it also has a built in neck scarf zipped into the lining..... it is warm and quiet... not sure if it will be hot in summer... hence the goggles... only drawback i can see.. is the visor wont go all the way up with the peak in place... goes high enough to get the visor out of line of view.... good enough compromise..

carbon fibre is very very cool looking....... great price,,,, not too heavy

highly recommended helmet++++++++ :D

I do like the Shark RAW in matt black and the two tone black and grey. Very cool.
