Like most, waited for this helmet to come stateside. Watched the review and agree with many of the initial thoughts after I pulled the helmet out of the box. Very lightweight as mentioned and compared to my full-face Arai. Did not like how the mask attaches to the goggles (4 small prongs), agree Shark should come up with a better system. The side panels can be a hard to snap back in after replacing the goggle straps. Not sure why Shark didn’t just make a vent switch for top vent, can see the little puck being lost.
Initial fit was fine around the forehead, but did get tight around the lower jaw-line with chinstrap. Goggles are kind of a pain to raise up gloved hands (worried about this as a military rider coming on base) and on my long face, chin touches mask.
Test ride on Harley with no windshield on a 50 degree day. I do wear earplugs, but thought the wind noise was not bad compared to my Arai (this is my 1st non-fullface). Slight amount of wind when moving head side to side at 70mph. Slight buffet on lower portion of mask at speed. Do hope Shark releases different tinted goggles; stock tint is ok, but really no room for sunglasses. Overall pleased with the fit and finish of the helmet, and co-workers so far have praised the looks. Good price from Revzilla and fast shipping.
