Shark Race-R Pro Helmet - Solid Colors The new, high-end SHARK Race-R Pro is constructed from carbon/aramid fibers, was initially developed for Shark's top level racers Moto GP, WSBK, Moto 2. Can you imagine the level of requirement these riders have Shark therefore had to ensure top level performance, giving the utmost importance to functionality and ergonomics lightness, stability, comfort, precision and aerodynamics. Because the requirement from top racers is two-fold safety and leading-edge technology. Shark must protect in critical situations, and must also contribute to their riding performance. The Shark Race-R Pro gives you the same level of excellence as it does to elite riders. Shark's mantra is simple, Just race! We care about the rest. The Race Pro-R is Shark's new high end composite fiber helmet. Totally designed through a reverse engineering process, the Race-R Pro has been developed from technical data as close as possible from human head specifications. Shark has therefore taken into account your own constraints before considering its own. From the very first track tests, riders have acknowledged its stability, even above 300 km/h, its comfort and the precision of the wide angle vision field as well as its optical distortion-free shield. The Race R PRO concentrates all what I am looking for in a helmet when riding my bike. In fact, it contributes to my riding performance. Randy de Puniet, June 22nd, 2012.

i was going crazy to get this helmet now that i have it i don't want it . the cheek pad on the left side cuts the back of my ear every time i take the helmet off,because there isn't enough foam around the plastic, the chin curtain is a pain in the butt to work. i have to where ear plugs on my daily commute cause the helmet is super loud. i rode in the cold rain and i couldn't get the helmet to defog for nothing. the magnet chin strap is way to close to the d rings so if you don't pinch the strap after you attach it, it will come off and flop around. i have had the shark rsr2 helmet for 5 yrs., and loved it even tho it didn't vent very good , but it fit great and i didn't have any issue's like i'm having with this one. sure wish i could send it back but you don't know these things without wearing it so now i'm stuck with a $700 helmet with only a clear lens because there aren't any others in the u.s.
