Thinking of getting one of these, is it a bit jazzy do you think? other option is plain black.

Is that the front piece folding right back to make it an open face ?

If so I'll take a plain black one please

Yes - the chin-bar rotates around to the back of the helmet to make it open-face.
Shark are on their third or fourth variant of this style of helmet, but this is a new colour scheme.
There is a 'knack' for clicking the chin bar into the locked position, but they are a neat idea.

Looks better than many flip-ups and good for in/out of town on a cruiser. Nothing beats a plain piss-pot on a custom bike, of course, but if you've got to go universal this one looks good

Same as mine! and you dissed it because it was black and orange! great helmet though best I have had to date, no noise regardless of speed only downside is if its chucking it down the wind blows the rain up and under the chin guard!

Only paid £160 for mine though! try helmet city
or try this

  No,   I 'dissed it' because it was yours!  hyst  anyhow Gaylord, I'm usually a "medium", but when I tried one on it felt tight, are they smaller? or do they just feel tight when new?

No they do feel a tad tight, but it doesn't take long for them to adjust, mine is medium and my ears don't stick out as much as yours

Cheers, not exactly cheap are they, I'll see if I can find a bricks n mortar shop selling them round here as I've got kind of a big head (needs to be big in order to store all my charm, wit and bullshit) and will need to try them for fit.

Sim Do you remember that I had the plane black one a while ago, loved it.
Well I did until my wife phoned me having broken down, so I quickly went the the rescue. I left my Evoline to close to a 500 watt lamp in my workshop that I didn't turn off and melted the bastard out of shape. affraid
