Shark Helmets has revealed an addition to its extensive 2014 helmet line-up – it's called Vancore and it will arrive in SA by the end of August.

This new helmet follows the path of the popular Raw urban helmet released on the market by the French brand in 2013. They're pricey, but look hot and features some cool tech.

The Vancore shares the same shell-shape as the Raw but its individuality comes from the fixed chin bar for riders who seek full-faced protection.


The Vancore's urban look, says Shark Helmets, is completed with a styled chin bar and quick-release goggles. There are also various colour options available for the goggles and lenses to customise.

The interior of Vancore has been designed to accommodate glasses with a hassle free fit, as the glasses sit in a recessed partition of the interior lining, with the Shark Fit System.

The Vancore weighs in at 1.25kg, has a pocket for Shark’s Bluetooth communication system SharkTooth and good ventilation by means of a large air inlet situated on top of the helmet.

Vancore will be available in UK dealers from the middle of May in Gloss black and white, matt black and green from the equivalent price of R3 900.
SA stock arrives in July/August 2014.

Shark Helmets are available at most motorcycle dealers and accessory stores in South Africa such as Full Throttle, World Accessories, Motorcycle World and Motorcycle Brokers.
