One That Got Away in 2020

The Shark Spartan GT helmet sitting on the seat of a KTM 790 Adventure in the Canadian Rockies near Canmore, Alberta.

In 2020, the new Spartan GT sport helmet was presented to us, the motorcycling masses by French manufacturer Shark Helmets proclaiming it would better protect our heads than the previous Spartan model did.

The differences between the older and newer models of Spartan when it comes to protection consist of a Multi-Density EPS foam liner in the GT, along with a shell sandwich made of multiaxial fiberglass and carbon fiber, from what I can tell. Those are legitimate safety enhancements over the fiberglass shell and mono-density EPS foam of the old Spartan. Bravo!

Why Not A Carbon Fiber Shell?

At first glance, I thought there was also a full Carbon Fiber shell version of the Spartan GT available but it turns out to only be a “skin” of carbon fiber, so it’s only aesthetically enhanced and no further protection is gained.
