Shark’s New War­rior: The Spar­tan

Old Bike Australasia - - GOOD GEAR -

Shark Hel­mets have a strong rep­u­ta­tion for rugged, safe and stylish de­signs. The Spar­tan is no ex­cep­tion, of­fer­ing rid­ers the high­est lev­els of safety, com­fort and so­phis­ti­ca­tion. A dual spoiler sys­tem op­ti­mises air drag and in­ter­nal cool­ing, keep­ing your head cool, while spe­cial Shark Skin fas­ten­ings on the side of the peak help re­duce whistling noises sig­nif­i­cantly. Shark’s Auto Seal sys­tem fur­ther im­proves sound­proof­ing and makes the Spar­tan a warmer, more com­fort­able fit. Con­structed from car­bon fi­bre and weigh­ing just 1350g, the Spar­tan fea­tures an an­ti­s­cratch, UV re­flect­ing sun vi­sor. When the Shark R&D team de­signed the Spar­tan, they took a re­verse en­gi­neer­ing ap­proach. This means ev­ery de­ci­sion started and fin­ished with the needs of the con­sumer; from the use of nu­mer­i­cal crash sim­u­la­tions util­is­ing Sharks well known safety con­cept that guar­an­tee the high­est level of safety, to im­ple­men­ta­tion of Com­pu­ta­tional Fluid Dy­nam­ics to achieve the most aero­dy­namic, user friendly de­sign. The re­sult is a hel­met that ex­udes class and el­e­gance, and per­forms at the very high­est level. The Spar­tan is as rugged and ca­pa­ble as its name­sake.
