Shark Helmets launched its Evo line way back in 2007. Since then, the modular lid has been a paragon of safety. As the world’s first to achieve double jet/integrated (P/J) homologation, the Evo family continues to provide the utmost protection and practicality. For 2021, the new Evo-GT is ready to make the riding season a breeze.
Most riders worry about the reliability of chin bars in the event of a crash. Shark’s V-Tech system ensures the user can easily lock the chin bar with one hand while the Safe-Lock technology guarantees protection even in a collision. Of course, riders can flip up the chin bar when additional airflow is needed but three front vents and two rear vents keep air moving through the helmet in full-face configuration too.
The visor is a class 1, anti-fog, and scratch-resistant optical lens that can stay down whether the chin bar is up or down. A Pinlock visor is also included in the package and the sun visor can be actuated by a centrally-located slider. The ambidextrous location helps those holding the clutch in the city or pinning the throttle on the motorway easily flip down the sun visor.
Removable and machine-washable Michrotech fabric lines the interior and the EasyFit system accommodates glasses. The helmet is also prepped for the brand’s proprietary Sharktooth PRIME . Offered in two shells and two interior grip molds, the Evo-GT should fit a wide variety of head sizes. Ranging from XS to XL, the modular helmet is also available in a King Size for a limited color range.
Shark offers the Evo-GT in 11 graphics and five different visor shades. The Evo-Gt retails for €429.99 ($521.59 USD) and the company will honor a five-year warranty upon registration. Whether you’re an urban or a cross-country tourer, the Evo-GT should provide the protection and flexibility needed in all situations.
