Modular helmet with excellent value for money, the Evoline Serie 3 brand SHARK offers ergonomics and comfort of use particularly pleasant.

Silent in both full and jet modes, this SHARK modular helmet comes with an anti-fog and anti-scratch screen. Available in 5 sizes, I was able to test the M: perfectly holds the head without too much tighten, the interior is padded but remains rigid enough to keep a feeling of superior security.

It also has a double sunscreen and is completely removable, which facilitates its maintenance.

Note that last year this helmet won the price of the modular helmet taking the least air in open mode.

Admittedly, no kit bluetooth motorcycle installed on this SHARK, but very frankly considering the price offered it was just not possible.

What is a modular motorcycle helmet?

A modular helmet is a motorcycle helmet placed between the Jet helmet and the full-face helmet. Indeed it allows to open and close according to the desires and needs of the moment simply by raising the chin. Very practical for riding a motorcycle according to the weather conditions and the weather, this type of helmet makes it possible to have a helmet with flexible uses and to not need to buy two helmets.

Decline of the modular motorcycle helmet, the convertible helmet allows you to completely remove the chin to really enjoy all the contributions of a Jet helmet.

Which modular helmet tochoose?

Choosing a good modular helmet is important. Indeed, with the first models, we found defects that did not satisfy lovers Jet helmet or those preferring to have a full face helmet.

The noise

The first defect was that of noise, and therefore the lack of adhesion of the walls of the helmet to the skull, the air passed and the absence of silence was felt. This defect has now been completely corrected on the best models of modular helmets.

On most models of silencer modular helmets we find a very good quality adhesion up to sometimes exceed some very good models of full face helmets and Jet helmets.

Double homologation

The other point to look at before buying your adjustable helmet is whether it has dual approval. Indeed a modular helmet is neither a Jet nor an integral and to be able to roll that the helmet is open or not it is necessary that it has the double homologation which is not the case on all models.

In concrete terms, there must be the letter P and the letter J, each corresponding to the Jet and integral homologation. If this is not the case you will only be able to ride with the chin strap folded down. The set of helmets proposed below normally has this double homologation.

Choose your modular helmet

To choose your motorcycle modular helmet we advise you to pay attention to a few points (see our comparative below) to fully enjoy the road.

Check the ease of adjustment with the gloves for the chin strap. Indeed the particularity of the modular helmet being to be able to go up your screen of driving thanks to a chin strap placed on the face of the helmet, it is better to be able to reach it easily with the gloves to do it while driving. (PS: we remind you that if no letter J on your adjustable helmet, it is not allowed to drive with the chinrest raised);
Check that your adjustable helmet has a built-in sunscreen to help you get the best driving conditions, as well as an anti-rain option.

As with all motorcycle helmets, various options are integrated into the modular helmets depending on the model. If some models do not have the options you want it is always possible to add them yourself later. Here are some options ideas available:

Modular Bluetooth headphones;
Modular helmet with Pinlock;
Modular helmets with glasses.
