SHARK Helmets will showcase its new 2014 collection at Motorcycle Live, at The NEC, Birmingham from November 23 to December 1. SHARK’s 2014 collection features three brand new helmets -- Explore-R, Vantime, and Heritage -- and a wider range of colors for current models. The Explore-R helmet offers both full-face and off-road helmet functionalities.

It features a removable visor, peak and goggles and it can be modified according to the wearer’s preference. Once the visor is fitted, the Explore-R helmet provides the same panoramic visor as the Vision-R helmet. The Explore-R boasts of having SHARK’s new ‘carbon skin’ technology that combines carbon and aramid.

Helmets from the carbon skin range feature a ‘second skin’ that provides extra protection for higher performance and improved shock absorption. The lining is made from natural bamboo fiber that is not only hypoallergenic and antibacterial but also provides good perspiration absorption. Riders could avail of the Explore-R through dealers starting January 2014 at a price of £319.99.

The Vantime, meanwhile, is SHARK’s first full-face urban helmet for riders seeking protection and urban styling. It boasts of a VZ140 ‘long trip’ visor with air inlets that allow greater surface demisting. The lining is also made of natural bamboo fiber for comfort and hygiene.

Vantime, which features an internal sunvisor and a pocket for SHARKTooth, could be availed starting January 2014 with a starting price £169.99. The Heritage, meanwhile, is the cafe racer-inspired open-face helmet made from the latest generation composite fiber.
