The new Shark Vancore is now available to order in the UK from Urban Rider. Shark have impressed us over the last year with some original and bold new concepts in the helmet market. The Shark Raw was one of the most distinctive and original open face helmets to hit the shelves in recent years. Despite it's popularity there were still many people that liked the styling as a concept but wanted to see full face protection. It's taken a while, but the Vancore is here. Borrowing from the same basic shell as the Raw, a fixed jaw guard has been added to the shell to offer genuine full face protection. The Shark Vancore comes fited and included in the price with Shark's integrated goggle system, featuring double layered Carl Zeiss lenses and a quick release mechanism. We will shortly be releasing a full video review of the Vancore.
The helmet is fairly scaled down in terms of external features. There is an improved top vent system from the one on the Shark Raw and the goggles fit almost seamlessly into their space, minimising water ingress. The helmets have a fit that will cater to most head shapes apart from those with a very oval shaped head.
We love that Shark are trying to do something different and on a personal level, we're impressed with the comfort and quality of finish and think that this should cater for people wanting something a bit different on bikes ranging from classic styled scramblers to big enduros like BMW R1200 GSs and a host of nakeds in between.
