SHARK S700-S

This Jo­hann Zarco replica ther­mo­plas­tic hel­met has just been re­tired by me af­ter five years of good ser­vice. As my day-to-day lid for most of that time there have been many fea­tures I’ve loved in­clud­ing the over­all com­fort, the in­te­gral sun-vi­sor and the look of the lid. Neg­a­tive points are the seat-belt/ ratchet fas­ten­ing (I just pre­fer the se­cu­rity of the dou­ble-d ring) and a propen­sity for the vi­sor to rise when do­ing a shoul­der-check/life-saver. I asked Shark and they said it could be me not fit­ting the vi­sor prop­erly, but in five years of use and much vi­sor-swap­ping the is­sue re­mained. Not a ma­jor an­noy­ance, so I will give the lid 6.7 out of 10. Now dis­con­tin­ued, the lid was a fairly bud­get item priced at £160, but now you can find ’em for around £100 and the ear­lier ver­sion (no S) was a four-star SHARP rated lid.
