The Raw helmet is an exceptionally unique yet functional offering
from Shark. It features an injection molded thermoplastic resin shell, a
hypoallergenic and moisture wicking bamboo liner, and of course, the
revolutionary removable mask and Carl Zeiss goggle system. Let's take a look at
some of the graphics...
The Raw is available in five different style options with multiple color ways
per style. They are called Blank, which are there solid colors, Stripe, Soyouz,
Trinity, and Michalak.
The Blank helmet color ways consist of gloss black, gloss white, and matte
black. These are helmets that are going to look great with any gear and will
really benefit from one of the sharp looking
The stripe graphic is available in orange with a black stripe, red with a white
stripe, and flat black with a white stripe. The stripes are askew on the helmet
and start above the right eye and extend across the top of the helmet to the
back where they have incorporated some Shark branding.
Next we have the Soyouz graphic. Some people think that the Soyouz graphic is
named after the famous Russian Spacecraft combo, but it isn't. I'll explain. You
can see here some Russian words across the top and sides of the helmet. I'm not
going to try to pronounce these words for you because my Russian is so fluent
that sometimes even Russians are like, could you slow down. But, I can tell you
the words meaning. They mean motorcycles are really fun and awesome and Shark
Helmets will bring a lifetime of happiness to you and everyone. Google Translate
doesn't even know that. Trust me.
The Soyouz is available in two color ways, a matte black with bluish grey
writing and stars, and a tan version with flat black areas with red stars and
silver writing. These helmet graphics definitely give the Raw helmet the
cosmonaut feel, and will look great with whatever your piloting.
Next, we have the Trinity Graphic. The Trinity is available in three really
sharp color ways; gloss black with bright red graphics, a gloss army green color
with tan graphics, and gloss white with charcoal colored graphics. The graphics
consist of a wing like shape that extends from the cover plate and seems to
originate from the goggle strap, and there is Shark branding on the back of the
helmet that has a patinated look to it.
Finally, we have the Michalak graphic. Frederic Michalak is a star rugby player
from France who also played a short stint in South Africa for a team called, you
guessed it, the Sharks. Apparently, Fred also designs great looking helmet
graphics. The helmet is primarily flat black and silver with areas of small,
tightly spaced pinstripes and subtle accents of bright blue on the forehead and
back of the neck. A crest is featured on the back of the helmet, with a rugby
ball in the center that dons a crown on the top and wings on the sides.
