RiDE Review: Shark Skwal

The slightly square back of the Skwal doesn’t affect its stability, even at speed. It is a squeeze to get on, but it’s comfy with a pleasantly non-sweaty liner.

The field of view is deep and wide, with no interruptions from the Max-Vision Pinlock. The two-position sun visor, operated on the side of the helmet, covers a good area and is dark.

Charge the Skwal via USB and turn on yellow lights round the vents for visibility at night.
