Shark Vision R Helmet

Post  Jimcoleman on Sat 02 Jun 2012, 3:38 pm

First topic message reminder :

having bought my Shark Vision R last year i been quite happy with it, a little noisy but its comfort is was what sold me.

Unfortunately i have been never really happy with the colour but once again comfort has been the over riding factor

things i really like about this Helmet
1. extremely comfortable
2. really good vision
3 flip down sunnies ( i love this feature )
4 Ventilation
5 never really fogged up on me

things i didnt like
1 Colour nicked named by a mate the red skunk
2. a little noisy
3 cost of replacement visors

so after all that it has been replaced due to my accident , what did i buy yep another shark Vision R

i discovered that whilst its a vision r its a different model my old red & white one is a Becool and the new one is a Reveal, one big thing i noticed was how much quieter the new on is i think it s to do with the diffuser under neath the chin

as you can see the difference between the two and i was actually staggered how quiet this helmet is i could comfortabley not wear ear plugs on short 1/2 day rides and i have had to turn the scala down 2 steps on the volume.

the built in sun visor is very handy and especially in foggy conditions, you can pop up the visor with the sunnies down and still give you protection and be able to see with out fogging up

over all I am very happy with the shark and recommend it

Did not think it was an option, but may consider. When your RSR2 came apart was it in the same as mine is delaminating?
Thanks.

No mate the liner was letting go. The rubber seal around the visor was falling apart. Both visors were too scratched and a replacement was over $100. In the shed it went with my old HJC and was replaced with a Shoei GT Air. The Shoei appears to be a helmet that is very well put together. Lots of cool things like removable cheek pads ( in case of emergency you can pull on the tabs and they come out to assist removing the helmet) and ratcheting chin strap is so much better than the D-ring buckles

Got to be an anomaly, I've got 3 shark helmets here, 2 are Vision R and no have done anything like that.

Definitely talk to Shark here in Australia, I've dealt with their rep here in Vic on 2 occasions and they have been great

+1 contact the supplier or manufacturer ,definitely looks odd.
