The Shark helmet brand is relatively new to the US, but they have been dominating the European market for some time. A Shark helmet is worth considering for anyone in the market for a premium helmet. Read on to see how the RSR Shark helmet stacks up against its competitors.
The first thing I liked about this Shark helmet is the comfort. The removable liner is soft, almost chamois-like and the foam density has a contouring quality that allows it to form fit to your head. This is easily one of the most comfortable helmets that I’ve ever worn.
The RSR Shark helmet reportedly meets all major European and US helmet safety standards so no need to worry there.
Where I find flaw in most premium quality helmets is the noise level. Most helmets are a little on the noisy side for the sake of increased airflow. The RSR Shark helmet, however, is fairly quiet. It’s not the quietest helmet, but it fares better than its competitors – while still flowing a good amount of air.
The price tag is the biggest drawback to the RSR Shark helmet. It is expensive, but if you shop around, you can find a good deal. I use MCGearDeals.com. They have a listing of the best deals on Shark helmets, so I don’t have to spend my time searching the web.
This helmet has a unique visor mechanism. Rather than the typical “notch” or “click” adjustments, the RSR Shark helmet has an infinitely adjustable visor. This may sound like a good thing, but I personally prefer the “click” adjustments. The adjustment mechanism takes some time to get used to, as well.
Like all premium helmets, the RSR Shark helmet has good airflow, is light weight, and provides good comfort and safety. The price tag is a little on the high side, but if you consider the cost of other premium helmets, the superior comfort and lower noise levels, make the RSR Shark helmet very attractive. If you can find a good deal on the helmet, it’s a no brainer.
