Helmet review: Shark RSR2 carbon

Shark RSR2 carbon, £449.99
Miles covered/time:
2800/11 months

What’s good? I tend to wear this on a daily basis as my commuter helmet, it’s very smart looking with its carbon/kevlar finish on the lower part.

A very easy to change visor system, with probably the sturdiest visor I have ever come across, at 3mm thick, it is dual treated so it is anti-scratch along with anti-fog.

The cheek pads are firm and there’s a good amount of space for your chin there is no problem at high speed when other helmets can be forced into your face. The vent system is easy to open and close giving adequate cooling around my head.

Fastening is traditional with a double D-ring set-up. The fully removable lining is great and easy enough to remove and clean, just a bit of a fiddle to put back.

It’s pretty quiet compared to some other helmets I have worn. The best thing, though, is that it’s so light, which makes a big difference when you are wearing it all day.

What’s not? One of the side air vents fell off in my hand as I took the helmet off.

Rating: 3/5
