The Shark Spartan is an elegant fiberglass helmet designed for both city and road use thanks to its optimum ventilation system and excellent aerodynamic performance.
Design and shell
Shark presented the Spartan Carbon last year and now we get the Spartan, which shares design and features but incorporates different materials in the shell.
Spartan Carbon uses carbon and fiberglass in its shell while the Spartan is made entirely of fiberglass. The Spartan allows us to enjoy the same style of helmet but at a more competitive price.

Shark offers two sizes of shell for a better fit to each size. The whole of the helmet is placed on the 1,390 grams without accessories in a medium size, a very low weight considering that equipment sun visor.
The helmet, sport-touring style, has an aggressive design culminated with a very unique rear spoiler, with two rear fins and that favor the aerodynamics of the helmet.
The Shark Spartan's clear screen has anti-scratch treatment and quick disassembly mechanism, without tools. In addition to a Pinlock MaxVision anti-fog, the screen has "Shark Skin" side attachments, which offer a noise reduction.
Also highlights the Autoseal System: this way the screen is glued to the helmet, improves soundproofing and prevents the entry of water and cold.
