Safety Shark Race R Pro Carbon
The shark race R Pro meets all 5 points of the strict SHARP safety certification and is of course ECE 22-05 certified. The Race R pro has an extremely strong and light Carbon / Aramid shell, which is shock resistant. The EPS inner shell is shock-absorbing. The Race R Pro has been optimised with the Venturi effect for perfect aerodynamics. This is due to their tests in the Shark Wind Tunnel, which are the same as what they use in Formula 1. The double spoiler in combination with the side spoilers ensure optimal stability. Furthermore, this helmet is equipped with a double D closure with a magnetic button for the strap. The light weight of the helmet contributes indirectly to safety, because when there is less pressure on the neck, you can better focus on riding.
Ventilation Shark Race R Pro Carbon
The ventilation of this sport helmet is optimized by the CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics). This is a way of getting the best ventilation, using computer software and mathematical and physical calculations. This helmet uses 6 air intakes and 7 air outlets. The chin ventilation has considerably large vents and is therefore covered with a filter on the inside. That gives a safe feeling against flying insects. The ventilation openings work together perfectly, to create the ideal air flow in the helmet. This clever and extensive airflow ensures optimal comfort while riding.
Visor Shark Race R Pro Carbon
The Shark Race R Pro is equipped with a Total Vision visor, of which the inside has had an anti-fog treatment and the outside has an anti-scratch layer. The Optical Class 1 visor has a thickness of 4.2mm in the middle and 2.8mm on the sides. The different thicknesses ensure that the visor prevents optical distortion of the sight. Furthermore, the visor has a Quick Release Visor System, that makes it possible to easily and quickly change the visor without the use of tools. This always comes in handy, especially when you race on a circuit.
Liner Shark Race R Pro Carbon
The Shark Race R Pro is accommodated with a Bamboo fibre inner lining, which is completely removable and washable. The lining is also antibacterial, absorbs moisture quickly and dries quickly. Furthermore, the cheek pads can be adjusted to the thickness that you prefer. The neck roll padding in this helmet consists of neoprene material that is elastic and water-repellent.
