Shark claims their Spartan sports touring helmet not only offers protection, but is also quiet and light so that it doesn’t fatigue you on a long trip.
Thanks to its new carbonfibre and fiberglass shell, it weighs just 1350g which is pretty light for a full-face helmet.
The Spartan also features a dual spoiler system to optimise air drag and internal cooling. It is designed to not only keep you cool but reduce drag that causes neck pain after a long day in the saddle.
The helmet has a feature called Shark Skin fastenings on the side of the peak which they say helps reduce that annoying whistling sound a high speed.
Shark claims its Auto Seal system will further improve soundproofing and make the Spartan a warmer, more comfortable fit.
Spartan comes standard with a Pinlock MaxVision face shield and integrated drop-down internal sun visor.
Shark claims their research and development team reverse-engineered the Spartan helmet based on the needs of the wearer.
This helmet has not yet been assessed in the comprehensive SHARP helmet safety rating system. However, Shark full-face helmets usually rate four or five out of five stars except for the budget Apennine which rates three stars.
