It's and open face helmet so its going to be loud(er# than your average full face. I have had 2 Blade helmets. The first one I was in an accident with so I can vouch for the crash worthiness. I did bang the left side of my head on the pavement pretty hard - but the helmet saved me. The accident was at about 30 mph - but that is plenty to kill you - especially when you are hit from the right by an inattentive car driver.
Anyway - the Blade is a very good value - nice and light for the blazing hot summer days. Not going to be quiet at highway speed for obvious reasons. Mounting in a Sena SMH-10 or Scalarider Bluetooth is easy on this helmet #I use a clamp on Bluetooth). The shield comes off super easy - two twist lugs but you must be careful not to lose them otherwise you will be out of luck. Dark smoke shields are very nice. The shields are not the super high quality type that resist all scratching but they are functional and don't distort your field of view.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This was my first Shark Helmet I did not want to drop a thousand dollars on a Schub. The EvoLine 2 looked pretty good, but as soon as I saw its replacement was on the way I waited for the EvoLine 3.
I'll start with telling you want I don't like about the helmet:
Fit is a little on the tight size. I normally wear an XL AGV helmet - same with the Shark. But it does fit a little tighter.
When removing the cheek pads and head liner to install the SharkTooth Blutooth; three of the snaps popped off. Kind of hard to accept that was due to wear and tear since I had not even left the house with it.
Once the Sharktooth headset is installed it can be a little painful to put the helmet on
For some reason I get a good bit of wind noise from the air coming over the top of my windscreen. I am not sure if I just never thought of it before or for some reason I hear it better with this helmet on.
I would prefer something other than the double D ring straps.
What I like about the Shark Helmet
Good tight fit - does not get annoying
Light
Price
Easily compatible with blutooth (does not have to be Sharktooth)
Good sunshield
'Pretty' Quiet - Not the quietest helmet but definitely better than the el-cheap-o brain buckets
Yes, I recommend this product.
