The Shark S900 is a full face helmet with integrated Sun Visor.

After a few weeks worth of use I have found the helmet comfortable and easy to use, there is a small spoiler on the back of the helmet which stops the flag pole effect knocking your head from side to side. The Helmet uses a ratchet fastening system which is easy to do up while wearing gloves and can be undone with a one hand.

The sun visor works using a lever on the left side of the helmet, it’s easy to find and operate while the bike is in motion and the visor drops down smoothly every time, there has been no hint that the mechanism might be unreliable. The only criticism I have of the sun visor mechanism is that when I drop it down it does tend to hit me on the end of my nose, although once down it doesn’t actually touch me anywhere so I assume that it is cause by me pulling the helmet forward and down when operating the visor lever.

The main visor has an anti-fog coating and a fog deflector both of which keep the main visor clear; however the sun visor does not seem to have an anti-fog coating and does occasionally fog up, although it clears almost immediately thanks to the air vents.

My biggest complaint about the helmet is that it isn’t particularly quiet, although that maybe more noticeable because I switched to a naked bike a few weeks before buying the helmet and all my previous bikes had more substantial fairings.

The current colour schemes are
Single Colours
  • Black
  • Silver

Graphic Helmets
*Black or Silver Base Colour with Silver, Red or Blue/Gold Graphics

Nice short review, any other colour schemes? Just a few grammatical errors which meant I had to reread a few points twice to make sense
