SHARK-supported Tom Sykes was crowned the 2013 World Superbike Champion at Jerez, Spain on 20 October. To celebrate this, and by popular demand, SHARK Helmets has launched a very special new design – the Speed-R Sykes Replica.
The model is a replica of the Race-R Pro helmet worn by the SBK champion and is a welcome addition to the existing SHARK racing replicas. The helmet features Sykes’s unique design with chrome detailing and inspirational words in Japanese script including ‘power’, ‘success’, ‘courage’, ‘belief’ and ‘karma’.:
The Speed-R helmet is constructed from the latest generation composite fibre and weighs just 1450g without compromising on any features. It has a new sunvisor mechanism for better feeling with gloves and is available with PinLock Maxvision. It also features SHARK’s Easy Fit system for glasses wearers and a double D-ring strap.
Price is just based on estimation of the currency exchange of GBP309.
