Shark Evoline 3 ST Hakka Helmet Sharks masterpiece continues on its evolution. Never has a helmet given you such options between street/road riding, open or full face. Improvements to the Series 3 include Easier manipulation of the chinbar thanks to the Auto-Up system. The unique motion of the Evoline remains unchanged and has become even more natural with the Series3. The Auto-Up system has been simplified - chinbar and main shield are now united in a single movement. Fabrics, finish and style. The interior of the Evoline Series 3 has been totally redesigned and is softer, better and more comfortable. Brand new ventilation design fore and aft. Overall lower weight has been decreased by approximately 200 grams. Features Lexan Polycarbonate shell Shark Easy Fit system for comfortable use with glasses Sharktooth ready Integrated drop down sun shield Removable and washable CoolMax liner ECE 2205 approved with chinbar in both open and closed position ECE 2205 and DOT approved

Nice design but on the loud side because there is no chin strap, since the helmet is designed to allow full open face usage. If you are looking for a safe open face helmet, that you can close on occasion, it is the perfect helmet. If you are looking for a modular helmet with no intention of using it as an open face, there probably is quieter option. Very good design and build quality.

I have already tried this jacket in 80 and 45 degrees weather and can attest to the efficacy of the two liners and the airflow when it is hot. It feels and fits great. A very good product!

I just tried this jacket on 900 mile trip with highway riding at 80MPH and temperature in the upper 30's. It offers great protection against the wind, while not creating too much turbulence. You feel a little bit like the MIchelin Bidendum in it, but that's the point if you are looking to stay warm. I have the HIgh Viz one, and would definitely recommend it.

I hesitated a long time before forking out $700 for a helmet, but I am now glad I did it. The increased comfort in highway riding between the Schuberth and the HJC I also have, is stunning. Fit is perfect, noise level greatly reduced for an overall safer ride as I do not get tired as quickly and air turbulence noise are kept to a minimum. It makes you feel that your head is in a car and your body on the bike. Is it worth the price? I can't say but I don't think anything comes closer in performance as far as modular helmets.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I am a new at riding and discovered the hard way that I needed gloves with some padding to prevent throttle numbness. This gloves size a bit small and do not have any padding, so I ended up getting a different model.

I wear Rx glasses so it is quite convenient not to have to take them off prior to putting this helmet on, since it is a modular. It is quite comfortable and not too heavy, but it gets noisy at 65MPH+.
