Shark helmets can be differentiated from the rest of the brands by their ambitious designs. Shark gambled on doing things differently. This includes the design and the outer appearance. Thus, for example, they bet on creating jet helmets with daring styling, totally different and removed from the rivals, with some of these models devised for wearing with off-road goggles, in a blend of a vintage helmet concept with the latest technologies.
But the difference doesn’t just lie in the outer design, but also in the construction. Another example are some of their modular helmets, whose chin bar system is totally different to other touring helmets of the same type, but including an integrated sun visor system. Another of Shark’s strong points is the attention that the brand pays to the possibility of equipping your helmet with an intercom. The Sharktooth intercom range is quite complete, thus affording greater versatility to their products.
The Shark helmet range also includes full face helmets, made of thermoplastic resin as well as fibre. In fact, some of their more sports models have a carbon fibre shell. In fact, Shark’s implication in competition is a significant part of its history: Raymond Roche was crowned Superbikes World Champion in 1993 with one of their helmets; 20 years later Tom Sykes did the same. Shark is present today in the most important competitions, including MotoGP with riders such as Aleix Espargaró and Scott Redding, which is why they already have more than 60 world titles with riders using shark helmets, on the asphalt as well as the dirt track.
Even though Shark is a more popular brand for road than off-road, the truth is they also manufacture motocross helmets.
Shark Helmets maybe a recent brand compared to some of the historic firms of the sector. But the truth is that their origin also hides a long history of motorcycle passion, as the Teston family, Shark’s founders, managed a motorcycle concession in Marseilles as of the 1920s. A passion that can be seen in all their helmets, unique creations since 1986.
