Shark Helmets has just announced its Race-R Pro GP FIM Racing #1 has been granted FIM homologation for circuit racing – and it’s one of the first lids to meet the high standard.

If you’ve not heard of it before, the FIM Racing Homologation Programme was set upto grant special recognition to safety products used in FIM competitions. The main aim of the programme is to offer an advanced evaluation of the safety performance of different products – and award homologation only when specific high performance and quality standards are met.

As a result, the Shark Race-R Pro GP FIM Racing #1 is undoubtedly a top quality bit of kit – having passed the FIM Helmet Standard FRHPhe-01 tests with flying colours. More specifically, it proved itself during linear impact tests at high (8.2 m/s) and low (5.0 m/s) speed on ECE points, medium speed linear impact tests on three extra points randomly chosen on the helmet surface, oblique impact tests with five different orientations and penetration test at two random spots. Not bad.
