Shark Explore R – Part of the Discovery Division
This time, Shark have opted for a helmet that covers all bases as far as ridestyles go. The Explore R can be used as an urban, open road, track riding, or off-road exploration helmet, thanks to its removable and interchangeable accessories. It features goggles and a sun peak that can be worn together, separately, or not at all, essentially transforming the Explore R between its styles. Like all top-end Shark helmets, it has a five year warranty when registered on the Shark website. It is constructed from fibreglass and carbon fibre, giving it an average weight of 1350 grams, ideal for long journeys and rides where you need to save as much weight as you can, racing or motocross, for example.
The shell of the Shark Explore R comes in two different sizes, which eliminates the need for excess padding when wearing the smaller internal size helmets, which, in turn, reduces wobble and helps to make the helmet perform at its best. The eye port offers the same panoramic vision as the Vision R, a helmet designed for maximum vision. Alongside the eye port are channels, which make wearing glasses inside the helmet much more comfortable than with other helmets, as the arms of the spectacles fit into these channels, reducing bending and distortion of the spectacles. A well designed ventilation system puts the cherry on this helmet-shaped cake, as it keeps you cool in hot conditions, no matter which formation you wear it in. At GetGeared we have a great selection of designs on the Shark Explore R helmets, so browse for yourself and decide which of these versatile helmets you want.
