I just received my Shark RAW helmet in the mail, it came super fast, 2 days I think; The helmet I ordered is a size Medium and that is normally what I wear in both Scorpion and ICON. The Medium is a bit snug; however, from experience I know that the padding with compress and it will loosen up a bit. I would say it is true to size if you have a good round head, which is what I have and what this helmet seems to be made for. I wore it around the house with the face shield and goggles on and it seemed easy enough to breath through. It is winter here now so no chance to ride it around and test it out for things like airflow and blind spots, etc. Will come back and add more on that later.

Great Helmet. A+ for Style, A+ for weight. Some people complain about wind noise but I find it fine. You have to remember its an open faced helmet. Note, the rubber airflow plug has been removed its now a slide on the top of the helmet.
I have been wearing this helmet to ride now for 1 year and this is my go to helmet. This helmet is noisy over 45mph but I believe honestly that every helmet I own is. The goggles never fog, the airflow is supreme in and around the face without being too extreme, and I like how the helmet moves in airflow. I have not experienced any issues with my peripheral vision and honestly couldn't be happier.
I just received and it looks great and I ordered a size larger and it fits great. Goggles fit over glasses but I'm concerned about the quality of the rubber attachment system especially the mouth cover... its poorly designed and I hope replacements are available and reasonably priced because it can't last. I'll update after some use but I'm concerned.
I just got my Shark Raw black helmet in a week and a half, a little delay due to the holidays. The helmet use good quality materials and it is very comfortable. I ordered this one because I wear glasses and the goggles fit and seal perfect all over the place. Now, my only complain is the noise over 40 mph. Sometime I have to wear earplugs when I ride on the hwy otherwise I love it.
After owning this helmet for 2+ years and riding over 12,000 miles with it on my noggin, I think I can give a fair assessment. In a nut shell 1. It looks awesome and I've had people want to photo it because of its looks. 2. It is not a full face helmet and does not pretend to be. It is DOT 3/4 helmet. 3. The face shield is pliable and will offer little protection in a fall but it has saved me from major shots to the face from debris kicked up and June bugs that normally feel like meteorites traveling at Mach II. 4. It is a bit noisy at highway speeds so additional ear protection is advisable on long trips. (This is common sense in my book). 5. Some reviews have questioned the long term durability of the google foam. I have experienced no deterioration of said foam and "yes" I do move the google/mask up onto the helmet. I just do not leave it in the stretched, up position long term. The helmet came with a tinted lens google. I ordered a clear lens (pricey) because night riding with the tinted lens is dicey but, the googles fit comfortably over my sunglasses for daytime rides. 6. With time the elastic google straps became "stretched" but I discovered an adjustment never mentioned or reviewed. If you remove the side covers to reveal the elastic attachment points, there are multiple slots sewn into the elastic that allow you to move a small removable pin to tighten or loosen the stretchiness. I wonder why no one has ever mentioned this. Bottom line: I love the helmet. It broke in to fit perfectly. It looks cool. And, I will buy another one if I ever wear this one out.
I personally couldn’t be happier about adding Shark to our lineup. They are a premium helmet company with a focus on safety, and an excellent eye for design. Their helmets look great, and they work well in every way a modern premium helmet should. Shark manufactures all of their own products, and all of their helmets exceed ECE safety requirements.
The Raw is one of the coolest things to hit motorcycling since programmable fuel injection. Shark sold a year’s supply of these helmets in the first two weeks they were available, and now we are proud to offer them to you. Its shell is constructed from an injection molded thermoplastic resin and the helmet features a dual density EPS liner. It has a universally fitting oval headform and is available in sizes XS – XL. The most notable feature for most is going to be this removable goggle and mask system. The goggles are made by Carl Zeiss, a world renowned camera lens manufacturer, and feature a dual pane, scratch resistant, and fog free lens. These goggles are designed to work with your prescription glasses and come with an additional smoke lens with hi viz options also available…When you get your Raw helmet, the mask and goggle setup will not yet be assembled, but assembly is a breeze. The first thing to do is to install the goggle straps. Remove the side plates by simply pulling out at the top of the plate. Install the strap by fitting the slot over the post and rotating it 90 degrees. Then you can replace the side cover. Repeat the same process on the other side of the helmet. Next you can fix the mask to the goggles. Now, if the idea of hiding your epic beard beneath a layer of black plastic sounds like utter blasphemy, and you do not wish to add the mask to your goggle assembly, don’t worry. No one is here to make you. You can just skip this step. For the rest, install the center pins first. Turn the mask so that it is perpendicular to the goggles and make sure that the nose guard is on the backside of the goggles. If you have the nose guard out in front of the goggle, the pin will not reach the hole and you will quickly go insane. Once you have the first center pin installed, you can turn the mask to install the second center pin. Once these are secure, the outer pins will press easily into the goggles. Now your goggle assembly is complete. To install this assembly onto the helmet, simply fit one of the goggle strap hooks over the bar tab on the goggle and work the hook until you feel it seat against the tab. Repeat the process on the other side of the goggle and you’re ready to rock. Your goggle/mask combo is now installed and you are ready to hit the streets… Another unique feature of the Raw helmet is the liner. This removable, washable liner is made of bamboo fibers. Bamboo is moisture wicking, antibacterial, and most importantly, hypoallergenic. So, if you’re the type of person that is allergic to lots of stuff, now the only thing you’ll be allergic to on your ride is everything in the world around you other than your helmet. To remove the liner, start with the cheek pads. Remove the chinstraps from the rings on the cheek pads and pull the cheek pad out of the helmet. They are held in with hook and loop so all you have to do is pull. The liner is attached to the neck curtain with this setup so start by pulling the neck curtain out of the shell and then pull the liner out at the forehead area and you’re free. These liner items can be washed in the washing machine on a gentle cycle, with cold water and a gentle detergent. As with all moisture wicking liner systems, avoid the use of fabric softener to maintain the liner’s maximum absorbency. Removing the liner exposes more of the Raw’s innovative features. This helmet has been prepped to accept Shark’s proprietary Shark Tooth communication system. You can see the speaker areas here in the EPS. In the crown you can see another great feature. These deep channels in the EPS liner perform two functions. The first is added protection. These deep channels act as a sort of crumple zone for added impact absorption in a crash. They also promote dramatically increased airflow throughout the helmet. Ventilation is a big part of the Raw’s mission. In addition to the highly breathable mask design, the intake port has also undergone extensive testing to ensure maximum airflow. They also considered an aspect of ventilation that most helmet companies don’t. Sometimes you don’t want any. The Raw features a rubber plug that can be installed into the intake port to completely seal off the ventilation system…
