Hav­ing done a few lit­tle off-road bits over sum­mer I went and got my­self the swanki­est look­ing on-road lid that would hack some green-lan­ing I could find, and when it ar­rived I couldn’t be­lieve my luck. Not only does it look even bet­ter in per­son than in the pho­tos, but the fin­ish is ab­so­lutely gor­geous – and it even comes with a full-face style vi­sor and a re­mov­able peak in­cluded in the price, so it’s es­sen­tially two hel­mets in one.

Get­ting it out the box things just got bet­ter, as even though I haven’t had a Shark on my nog­gin for over five years now, from the in­stant I had it on I couldn’t be­lieve how com­fort­able it was, and even us­ing the Mo­toX style con­fig­u­ra­tion how quiet it is. So much so, that since it ar­rived I’ve been us­ing it for all my lit­tle er­rands as it looks boss, has loads of ven­ti­la­tion and thanks to the quick and easy ap­pli­ca­tion of de­tach­ing and reat­tach­ing the gog­gles, is pretty prac­ti­cal as well. The ven­ti­la­tion is im­pres­sive, and off-road the aper­ture helped mas­sively, so for on and off-road trails I couldn’t rec­om­mend the Ex­plore R highly enough. I wouldn’t rec­om­mend go­ing too quickly with the peak on though, as the wind catches it a fair bit and gives your neck a bit of a work­out. Oh, and it has a bloody drop down vi­sor. Other than that? Top marks Shark.
