F4RC Helmet by Shark. Opinion?

Just found this one. I liked it but I have a hard time ditching th Arai RX7RR.
Last year I bought a HJC and for me it was a lousy helmet. I liked it that it had both pinlock and tearoff, but it didn't fit my head like the Arai.

Anyone had a Shark model? Reviews on that one?
Thanks.

I had a Shark and liked it very much. But I didn`t like the fact the face shield fell off during a crash.

Anyone know where I buy the F4RC Shark helmet??

Isn't the F4RC from 2015? It seems impossible to get parts to this bike.

Looks like a custom paint job on a Shark Race-R Pro versus a production helmet, perhaps an MV dealer had it done. The official MV helmets are made by currently made by AGV.

I wear a Race-R Pro carbon, its great, really light, nice fit. Good VFM too if you find last years colours on offer for nearly 1/2 price

try here www.fc-moto.de and here http://www.helmetcity.co.uk/categori...Pro-Clearance/ for Shark helmets on offer

cheers

If the Aria is comfortable the Shark Race-R will most likely be uncomfortable and press on your forehead.

I tried many different helmets before purchasing the Aria Vector 2, I found the Shark Race-R did not suit my head shape and applied pressure to my forehead

I have a shark race r and it's nowhere near as comfortable as my schuberth SR1

I find the opening on the shark really small and impairs all round vision - especially to the clocks on my dragster and when looking over shoulder

I would love one of the new Bells if not I'll buy another schuberth - I'm not keen on the Arai I have either !

everyones head is different, but i have both, three arais and two sharks and for me the shark is a better fit. But i have a big fat head.

I have an Arai head and will also fit the HJC. The Shark does not fit me at all. It gives me a head ache only by trying.

Never had a Shark (I use Arai and AGV) but you can try here:

Spanish company, I use them constantly, fast reliable service(unlike fc-moto.de).
And good prices.

Oh... in that case I can advise www.chromeburner.com
My daughter has a saturday job over there

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.
