I'll be honest. The main reason I got this helmet is because of its looks. I didn't care that it was technically an open-face helmet, since I only planned on wearing it during short rides around town. However, now that I've gotten a chance to use it for a while, I actually like other aspects of the helmet such as its light weight, comfort, and versatility.
When I received the helmet, there was a slight learning curve in getting everything put together. The goggle straps are not easy to use until you get used to it, and that face mask attachment seems impossible to attach. However, the trick is to attach the mask to the googles BEFORE you attach the goggles to the helmet. TRUST me on that!
The main feature of this helmet is its unique aggresive style. You will not go unnoticed on or off your bike, so be prepared to answer a bunch of questions about it!
The helmet is relatively light weight, which makes sense since it is technically an open-face helmet. However, when you factor in the goggles and mask, it feels and 'sounds' like a full face helmet due to the tight seal the goggles make with the helmet and your face. The padding on the helmet and goggles is very comfortable and not too tight - I didn't have any problems squeezing in some ear buds to listen to music.
I actually like the design of the chin strap. Some have complained that it sits too far forward on the chin, but I actually LOVE that feature! Most of my helmets with normal chin straps tend to snag on my velcro jacket collars and they make me feel like I am choking when I turn my head. But because of its chin strap position, with the Shark Raw helmet makes my head feel more unrestricted.
This is a great helmet overall!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Nolan definitely knows how to make a great helmet visor. The optical quality is excellent with no distortion at all. True horizontal 180 degree field of view.
Yes, I recommend this product.
