Shark Race-R Pro Helmets
The Shark Race-R Pro is Shark's top of the range race helmet, as worn by Jorge Lorenzo in MotoGP and Sylvain Guintoli in WSB. Now, you can own their helmets with Lorenzo or Guintoli graphics, to demonstrate your passion for MotoGP or WSB. Over and above the normal things you can expect from a top helmet, the Shark Race-R Pro excels in its quietness, comfort, ventilation and the quality of its optical visor. With a shell made from a blend of carbon and kevlar, it's very light, at 1250g. The difference between this helmet and the Race R Pro Carbon is the percentage of carbon in the carbon/kevlar blend, with this version having more kevlar, plus the Carbon version has more visible/unpainted carbon. The Shark Race-R Pro has been awarded 5 stars in the government's SHARP safety rating and it's ECE 22/05 and ACU approved for road and tracking riding. Now worn by Jorge Lorenzo, five time world champion, including three in MotoGP. What greater endorsement do you need?
The Shark Race-R Pro is a very quiet helmet. The aerodynamics make a large contribution to that, but Shark have a newly developed 'neck roll', which provides an excellent barrier to wind noise entering around the opening of the helmet. This has resulted in a 4 decibel reduction in noise levels at 60MPH. The inner lining is new and made from a bamboo fibre for extra comfort and the quick release anti-scratch visor has been treated on the inside for anti-fogging. The helmet is secured with a double D-ring and the Shark Race-R Pro has a class 1 optically correct visor. It's 4.25mm thick at the centre, but tapers off to 3mm along the sides to provide clear vision throughout your peripheral vision. The Shark Race-R Pro can also accommodate a Sharktooth bluetooth communication unit.
