Shark has introduced the first helmet with integrated LED technology, taking passive safety to a new level. The Shark Skwal replaces the popular S900 line and represents a giant leap forward in rider comfort and safety. It is clear that great thought went into incorporating the LED technology. The LED lights are mounted flush with the helmet surface and the amperage draw is so low they won’t need recharging very often. The lights are located on the front and back of the helmet and are easily activated with the left hand. The back lights can be also be seen from the side. Whether on the steady glow or flashing setting, these LED lights announce your presence to the traffic around you.
Made out of injected thermoplastic Shark’s Skwal helmet weighs in at around 1450 grams. This is still very light for a helmet with built-in LED lighting in combination with an integrated sun-visor. Strips of yellow/green or white LED lighting on the front and back of the helmet make you light up in the dark, a useful addition since we all know that riders can be hard to spot in the dark. The aerodynamic design of the Shark Skwal helmet features scoops in the back with grooves at the bottom. These grooves stop the turbulence that causes your head to be a battered about when riding at top speeds. French helmet manufacturer Shark padded it’s Skwal helmet with a completely removable and washable anti-bacterial liner. Shark’s Easy Fit system ensures a perfect fit even for those wearing glasses. Those of you who have had water leaking into their helmet from under their visor know how incredibly uncomfortable it is to ride with wet padding. Innovation leader Shark has found a solution to this problem however. Their all new “autoseal” visor mechanism makes up for a tight seal between the visor and the helmet, preventing water from dripping into it. Speaking of the visor, Shark has gone a long way to ensure maximum wearing comfort. Right out of the box this Skwal helmet comes with a anti-scratch and anti-fog visor. But why deliver a design with one visor when you can go for two? Shark integrated a built-in retractable sun-visor in the design of its Skwal helmet, making wearing sun-glasses while riding a thing of the past. Shark even managed to build in space for its own Bluetooth communication system in the liner of the Skwal effectively making the helmet Sharktooth ready. This ECE 22.05 approved helmet is held onto your head through a Micro Lock buckle.
