Shark Race-R Pro - Lorenzo 18 - Mat KAR
The Shark Race-R Pro is the high end model made of carbon/aramid fibers, has been developed in the first place for Shark's top level racers: MotoGP, WSBK, Moto 2 and many more. Shark therefore had to ensure the essential criteria, giving the utmost importance to the global functionality and ergonomic: lightness, stability, comfort, precision, aerodynamics. Because the request from top racers is dual: safety and on the leading-edge technology. SHARK must protect in critical situations and must also contribute to their riding performance. Riders concentrate best in a safe environment. The SHARK Race R PRO gives you the same level of excellence as it does to their elite riders.
The Shark motive for the Race-R Pro is simple : "Just race! We care about the rest".
The Race-R Pro is Shark's high end composite fiber helmet. Totally designed through « reverse engineering » process, Race-R Pro has been developed from technical data as close as possible from human head specifications. SHARK has therefore taken into account your own constraints before considering its own ones. From the very first track tests our riders have acknowledged its stability, even above 300 km/h, its comfort and the precision of the wide angle vision field and its optical distortion free shield.
Visor/Shield and Vision
SHARK had already stunned when launching for the first time a 3mm shield on the RSR2 model. Today, we go even further with the Race-R Pro with a true revolution in terms of technology and use. :
- The VZ100 shield that is fitted on the Race R PRO is « Class 1 rated ». This choice avoids visual fatigue during long trips when optical distortion occurs.
- Targeting « Class 1 » rating has challenged our engineers to choose audacious technology variable thickness:
- 4 mm verticaly in the middle section of the shield (first time ever on a motorcycle helmet).
- 3 mm horizontally.
The riding advantage is obvious: no optical distorsion even at high speed, and precision at first glimpse, head down or quick
backwards control when racing. This technical choose protects even more the rider against perforation & shocks on the shield. The VZ 100 is maintained by 4 anchor points ensuring maximum safety as the shield remains on the helmet during potential crashes. In case of accident with visor in open position, SHARK has designed pre-shaped screws that would break off.
Still targeting the best functionality, the SHARK R&D department has shown great pragmatism for designing the ventilation system. Studying & selecting the best existing systems, we built up our own solution. The Race R PRO ventilation system is a synthesis of the most efficient ventilations:
- 4 air scoops: chin (with integrated anti pollution air filter) + front + 2 top vents.
- 7 extractors.
- 3 possible positions: closed, intermediate, fully open.
- Optimization of venturi effect thanks to Formula1 wind tunnel testing.
- Pre grooved for SHARKTOOTH
- "Easy Fit" glasses system.
- Carbon Aramid Fibres
- Spoiler CFD
- 2 shell sizes
- « Double D » chin strap
- Magnetic chin strap end
- Ergonomic shield prehension shape for ease of use with gloves
- 4 anchor points for main shield
- 4 air flow points with optimized venturi efficiency
- Shield with variable density: minimum thickness 3mm, maximum thickness 4.25mm, with new anti scratch // antifog coating that can be re-activated.
- Thermo shaped comfort lining.
- Removable and washable comfort paddings: antibacterial, cheek pads interchangeable for custom fit, micro aeration for optimized air flow
- Neck pad with neoprene sections for elasticity and water resistance
- Nose mask (new fixation system)
- Chin cover
- Weight from: 1250 g + / – 50 g
- Sizes XS to XL
