Shark vs Shoei

Hey guys.

So, I was willing to change my helmet. Currently, I wear a Shark RSR2.

It has been sometime already that I am researching about a new helmet, and I am kind of between two models: a Shark Race-R Pro (or maybe a Race-R Pro Carbon, I do not really know the difference between those two yet) and a Shoei X-12. I have been riding with my RSR2 since the beginning and always loved it, so I am really thinking about the Race-R Pro.

I know that the Shoei offers 5 different shells sizes, does that really make any difference? I mean, my RSR2 is a medium size, and I have tried a Race-R already, it would be a small one, so, would the shell between the two models have a big difference?

And how about comfort? Another thing that makes me want the Shark model is the Sharktooth ready stuff and the gap in the padding for sunglasses.

So I think this is it. I know it is a lot of questions, but any opinion would be appreciated. I am not really in a rush, because I will probably not be trading my helmet until the end of the year. Oh, and by the way, sorry about any eventual English error, it has been sometime since I do not write anything in English, so I am a little rusty.

Shoei is a lot better than Shark. I wouldn't really compare the two if you're buying ah elmet for bluetooth functionality and sunglasses space built in.. It's just not a wise comparison between the two. Shoei is definitely going to fit better and be more comfortable. You can always add on the other bluetooth functions to the Shoei if you need. The price is a bit steep on the thats a pretty big factor. With the x12 though, I do know you can change out the visor thus eliminating the need for sunglasses :P
