Sharks as sea creatures have a pretty bad reputation around the world. Shark motorcycle helmets' Race-R Pro, on the other hand, has a first-rate reputation. Even current MotoGP world champion Jorge Lorenzo puts his head inside one.
That's because Shark Helmets take what's good about sharks – their aggressively streamlined bodies – and apply it to design. The result is what Shark calls Computational Fluid Dynamics technology. In other words, the Shark Race-R Pro is very aerodynamic. But unlike real sharks, the helmet also does a good job of protecting your head. According to Shark, the Race-R Pro has five-star crash-test shock resistance, a class-one optically correct visor, a 1.6 kilograms carbon-aramid shell, multi-axial fibers, four anchor points for the visor safety lock, and four venturi extraction points.
