Shark Race-R Pro Carbon Race Helmet The new, high-end SHARK Race-R Pro Carbon 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 Carbon 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 Carbon 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. Thanks to wind tunnel testing, Shark has minimized unpleasant cyclonic airflows on the Race R Pro by adding a double blade spoiler. Result Stability. The Race R Pro ventilation system is a synthesis of the most efficient ventilation 4 air scoops chin (with integrated anti-pollution air filter) + front + 2 top vents 7 extractors 3 possible positions closed, intermediate, fully open Optimization of venturi effect thanks to Formula1 wind tunnel testing Features Super Light Weight Carbon/Aramid Fiber shell 4.5 dB(A) quieter than the standard Race-R Pro in wind tunnel testing Sharktooth-ready Shark Easy Fit glasses system offers wearers a comfort lining which has a pre-tted system to accommodate all types of glasses Spoiler CFD 2 shell sizes Double D chin strap Magnetic chin strap end 4 anchor points for main shield 4 air flow points with optimized venturi efficiency Shield has variable density minimum thickness 3mm, maximum thickness 4.25mm, with new anti-scratch/anti-fog coating Thermo shaped comfort lining Removable and washable antibacterial liner Cheek pads are interchangeable for custom fit Neck roll with neoprene sections for elasticity and water resistance Breath guard with new attachment system Chin curtain ECE 22.05 and DOT approved

I got the Race R Pro Carbon Race helmet and love the build quality of it. Everything is well made.
The size is right for my head but is a bit tight around the cheeks. (Bought some smaller cheek pads to see if it fit better) I know this is a race fit helmet but to put in on and off, the narrow opening scrapes my ears every time. I'm hoping that the material or foam will break in?
Once the helmet is on, it is comfortable. The noise is slightly quieter than my Shoei Qwest. I thought the weight might be lighter but I think it is about the same.

I bought my back protector together with my jacket because I don't want to mess around with my spine if I happen to be in a crash. I slipped the back protector into my jacket together with the thin padding that came with the jacket. I got a medium size one for my size 50 European Size A Star jacket, it slips down to my mid, lower back because there is no dedicated pocket for the protector to keep it in place.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I was looking for a pair of leather pants to accompany my A Star leather jacket. Looking for something that I can zip up to make a whole suit. I was thinking of going for full leather but settled on the textile/leather combo for air flow and price point.
I am quite happy with the look of the pants and the lack of pucks on the side because for daily riding or spirited riding there is no need for it.
When I tried it on the first time I notice the pants were snug/tight. I know they are suppose to be a bit snug, but wondered if other people will have issues because I do not have muscular legs and they are snug already?
Went for a ride with them and overall the leg area felt great, the crotch area was a bit tight, not sure in time if it will loosen up or? Looking at the sizing chart I bought the 50, the formula of Waist+18 = AStar size applies.
Not sure if I should have gotten the next size up? but might be too big??
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought my Shoei helmet in a L size because after trying it in the store the L fits more comfortable than a M. But after riding for a year with the helmet I notice that it can be a bit more snug. I found this and bought one size bigger for the cheek pads. After installing the new pads in, it fits snug and tighter around the cheeks and the back of my head. I'm sure it will break in and be more to my face/ head shape the more I use it.
Great alternative for sizing up or down helmet sizes instead of buying a new helmet.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Great design and looks cool. The helmet fits snug around the cheeks and collar area. Love the bright color! Super light weight so you can wear it comfortably for long periods of time.
The vents are a bit cheap plastic in feel. Only drawback is the noise level is loud. Need to wear ear plugs.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I was excited to get the backpack in the mail so fast from Revzilla. I had to open it right away and see it up close. I really like the overall feel and fit of the backpack. Like some of the other reviews before. I had the same issues.
1. When the backpack is fully packed, there is no room for other items. Such as change of clothes. Especially when all the electronics and a pair of shoes are packed in. It was also difficult to zip up the bag after everything is in.
2. Maybe the bag need some reflectors so other drivers can see you?
3. With full gear on. It was difficult to get your arms into the loop when putting it on your back. Leather friction with the backpack.
4. I know the backpack is well thought out and designed. But since I am a Leftie, I tend to put on my backpack from my left side. Most of the design thinking are for Righties. So need to get used to. Ie. most clips for straps are on the right.
Overall, I like the product and it fits well.
Yes, I recommend this product.
