Famous for their flip up and over system helmets, French helmet specialist, SHARK Helmets’ CityCruiser hopefully arrived in UK dealers in July, following production in the brand’s European factory.
Distinctively styled in terms of shell, visor and colourways, the CityCruiser features what they are calling ‘X-Tra protection’, where the shell provides increased coverage of the cheeks and jaw – resulting in increased protection compared to other jet helmets without compromising the wide field of vision … if you’re not looking at goggles, but then the helmet’s full length visor suggests that you won’t be.
The VZ140 anti-scratch visor’s hidden mechanisms beneath side plates keep it sleek and reduce aerodynamic turbulence, and the integrated UV380 anti-scratch sun visor has a chrome finish. And it should be as cool to wear as to look at thanks to a rear air extractor, which also aids efficient demisting.
A brand-new AEGIS MICROTECH interior – made from recycled fibres with antibacterial and anti-odour properties – is removable and washable, and for those who wear glasses, it’s fitted with SHARK’s EASYFIT system.
