SHARK Helmet Review

Well I got the SHARK RSX Eagle:
Attachment 23089

This helmet kicks , I could not be more pleased. On a scale of 1--10 1 not good, 10 great:

Ventilation: 5
Weight:10
Fit:10
Wind Noise:10 (like having ear plugs in) Sweet
Dark Shield seal: 10 (no wind coming in)
Appearance: 10 (to me, i like it)
Peripheral Vision: 8
Interior Padding: 10

I tried on allot of helmets and did allot of research before making the purchase. I think i got a good deal on it and it is an all around good/great helmet. It fit better than the suomy i tried on, felt better than the shoei, more comfy to me than any other helmet. Just thought i would rave on the SHARK helmet. I WILL get another mid summer for sure. Just my .2

Sounds like the lack of ventilation will suck when summer rolls around.

I will take a little less ventilation, Fits perfect, light, comfortable, nothing a small crack of the shield wont cure.

HAve you worn one yet? Try them if not. Big ears or not, they are comfortable.

I tried one on when I was helmet shopping. they fit my head great, just no room for my ears. I am sure the ear rings didn't help anything.
