This new helmet from Shark has just arrived in SA and its part of the new 2013 range.
The S700-S is an entry-level helmet made from injected thermo plastic and designed primarily for road use and has an internal drop down sun visor.
But without doubt the biggest talking point is this fabulous paint job. The Legion’s nasty teeth are based on the Curtis P-40 Warhawk/Kittyhawk fighter plane from WW2, which also had this design painted under the chin. The Legion is also painted with mat green/black to keep with the military vibe and we bet, like us, you want one? You most certainly will when you see the price? Be quick though because they won’t stay around for long in the stores and toothpaste is not included.

These premium quality helmets are made and designed in Germany, which says it all regarding build quality. Even the arrogant Michael Schumacher has been involved with the design and testing of their bike helmets, which are claimed to be some of the quietist on the planet.
Schuberth also have a an interesting point of saying they will sell you a new one, if yours gets damaged in an accident, for a third of the price of a new one. Now that’s a serious offer to think about, don’t you think? Full range now available at DNA motorcycles, so pop in and try one on, you just might be as convinced as ‘old chisel face’ Schumacher is?
This large range of motorcycle protective pants is proudly made in South Africa, which is good news because it keeps the retail price down.
They’re made from a combination of Kevlar and super strong synthetic materials to keep your legs in one piece, if you happen to have an abrupt meeting with the tarmac that is.
X-Kulcha also have a range of ladies pants so the gals don’t have to be subjected to a saggy bottom and a weird fit, which is nice and considerate.
So if you’re after some fashionable and very protective pants then try X-Kulcha out before you look elsewhere and ride with a South African product for a change?
