About the SHARK Helmets Race-R PRO Carbon:
The Race-R PRO Carbon Helmet by SHARK Helmets, is the perfect blend of style, stability, and safety. This high end composite fiber helmet has been totally designed through a reverse engineering process, making it race ready for any rider.
Our flagship helmet design, the SHARK Helmets RACE-R PRO Carbon model is one of the first helmets developed to rely on CFD technology (featuring computational fluid simulations) while also featuring a carbon belt. This simulation of aerodynamic performance adds the attributes of optimal ventilation and penetration through air, while still recognized as one of the world’s safest helmets, earning 5 stars in the SHARP crash test.
The Race-R PRO features a double blade spoiler to aid high speed aerodynamic force. Crystal clear visibility is achieved thanks to the optical class one visor with variable density – the visor is 2.8mm around the edges and 4.25mm in the centre – which offers near perfect optical quality.
The visor has a patented four anchor point visor safety lock and is treated with an anti-scratch treatment outside and an anti-fog treatment inside. It fastens securely using a double D-ring strap and tucks away using a magnet. The helmet features a quick release visor system and the interior is removable and washable.
The Race-R PRO is acknowledged as one of the safest helmets on the market with five stars in SHARP testing and has appeared on the podium at world-level racing championships over 150 times.
