The SHARK Helmets RACE-R PRO CARBON is Shark's new high end composite fiber helmet. Totally designed through a reverse engineering process, the SHARK Helmets RACE-R PRO CARBON has been developed from technical data as close as possible from human head specifications. Shark has taken into account human head constraints before and developed a one of kind experience.
From the very first track tests, riders have acknowledged its stability, even above 185 mph, its comfort and the precision of the wide angle vision field as well as its optical distortion-free shield.Thanks to wind tunnel testing, Shark has minimized unpleasant cyclonic air flows on the Race R Pro by adding a double blade spoiler. Result = Stability.
The SHARK Helmets RACE-R PRO CARBON ventilation system is a synthesis of the most efficient ventilation:
- 4 air scoops: chin (with integrated anti-pollution air filter) + front + 2 top vents.
- 7 extractors.
- 3 possible positions: closed, intermediate, fully open.
- Optimization of venturi effect thanks to Formula 1 wind tunnel testing.
- Super Light Weight Carbon/Aramid Fiber shell.
