    Firecrest Says
    The Carbon fibre Shark Explore-R is a new concept in adventure motorcycle helmets. Although at first appearance it looks more off road biased with it's Dakar inspired goggles, the peak and goggles can easily be removed and quickly fitted with a regular visor to instantly give the Explore-R the quieter profile of Shark's Vision-R 2 touring helmet. The look of the Explore-R doesn't just lend itself to adventure bike riders though, with its carbon fibre skin and goggles this helmet has a dark aggressive urban look, perfect for the likes of the Yamaha MT-09.


    The Shark Explore-R is different to most other adventure motorcycle helmets which can be a compromise for touring, or riding at speed. The peak on adventure helmets can deflect air making the helmet a little unstable and can cause greater neck strain. Most adventure helmets get around this problem by making the peak flexible so it does not deflect the air as much, and the peak can usually be removed for even more stability and reduced wind noise. However, because most adventure helmets were originally based on motocross helmets they are a bit odd looking with the peak removed and there are still noise/aerodynamic and visor shape compromises when compared to a regular full face motorcycle helmet. This is where the Shark Explore-R differs though!

    The Explore-R is based on Sharks highly successful, and quiet, Vision-R touring helmet. With just a quick job, without the need for tools, the Explore-R can be converted to a near copy of a Vision-R touring helmet, but now in carbon fibre!

    With the regular visor fitted, and peak removed, it looks and functions like a touring helmet, but for when you're going off road, or just want the Dakar look, you can easily convert it to a 'full on' adventure motorcycle helmet with goggles.

    The look of the Explore-R doesn't just lend itself to adventure bike riders though, with its carbon fibre skin and goggles this helmet has a dark urban look, perfect for the likes of the Yamaha MT-09. In fact, you may have seen a prototype of this helmet in early advertisements for the Yamaha MT range!

    New Shark HelmetReview by Neil
    Bought this to replace a previous Shark Helmet. Good quality finish, I like the different options. Goes well with my adventure bike, looks the part. Refitted my Sharktooth from my other helmet with no issues. (Posted on 03/07/2017)
