Smart looking, light weight sports touring helmet with very poor build quality.

I had to send mine back for repairs within 2 months of ownership due to the slider plate on top coming loose, the visor hinge mechanism breaking, and the spoilers on the rear coming apart.

This helmet has not been abused or even been off-road, just the daily commute and occasional day tour. Needless to say I was very disappointed with it from early on. Shark also has a very stupid visor attachment mechanism which will most likely cause you to snap your visor at some if you want to remove it for cleaning. It creaks loudly inside which makes me think the EPS is rubbing on the shell or along straps. Not good for a £350+ lid!

Forget about aligning the visor to get an adequate seal because a quarter turn on the side-plate adjustment screws will snap them (contrary to the Shark instruction video)

Do yourself a favour and buy HJC, Shoei, Arai or something better for that money!
