Shark launches new motorcycle helmet for the summer
Monday 22nd July, 2013
Bikers can hit the road in style this summer with a selection of top motorcycle accessories from Dainese and Shark.
First up we have the latest motorcycle helmet from Shark. New for 2013 the Vision – R GT Carbon is an updated model of the popular Vision – R and is specifically designed with touring in mind.
The French motorcycle accessories maker says it offers the "greatest panoramic aperture" available on the market, similar to that of an open-faced helmet.
Compared with a standard visor, the Vision – R GT Carbon gives 25 per cent more vertical vision and ten per cent more horizontal vision, according to Shark.
The Shark Vision – R GT Carbon is easy on the neck, weighing just under 1.4kg due to its Carbon/Aramid fibre construction, making it ideal for long summer day trips in the heat.
There is also a removable natural bamboo fibre interior and inflatable cheek pads to ensure perfect fit and comfort.
The helmet is Pinlock ready and has an integrated anti-scratch sun visor. If you wear glasses when your ride it has SHARK’s ‘Easy Fit’ glasses system, where the glasses sides sit easily inside a partition of the helmet.
Meanwhile, Dainese has released a great range of super-cool motorcycle clothes for summer riding.
A highlight is the Aspide Tex technical jacket, which features aluminium shoulder inserts, front and rear air vents as well as removable composite protectors. It is constructed from elasticated fabric to ensure a good fit while still allowing the rider to move freely.
The Super Speed Textile jacket is another favourite and is designed specifically for sports riding and has a whole host of technical features including removable composite protectors, aluminium shoulder inserts, chest and back protector pockets, and a jacket-to-trouser fastening system.
It is made from mesh fabric offering ventilation on the hottest of days and also features a removable windproof insert.
