Schuberth SR1 Helmet.

Bought this helmet from FC Moto in Germany on xmas eve and just thought I'd write a review as I'm well impressed!
Since I bought my first Arai (a Wes Cooley replica!), in the mid 80's, I've stayed loyal to the brand since, up to my current RX7GP.
My helmet was due for a change, so looking around, I came across the Schuberth SR1, which was developed by Michael Schumacher when he left F1 and took up bike racing.
Taking a trip to FC Moto near Aachen (only a 30 minute drive for me!), They have great prices and reputation, and also stock almost all helmet brands.
I was surprised by the differences between the SR1 and my Arai, they are both really comfy on, but you really feel the weight difference. 1252 grams for the Schuberth and 1588 grams for the Arai (weighed on my kitchen scales!), so.. much lighter.
The Schuberth is constructed from a Carbon fibre shell covered with a Kevlar/Dyneema/Fibreglass mix, and that helps explain the light weight. I also tested a few full Carbon helmets and they were all heavier than the Schuberth!
Going out for a ride, the Schuberth performed really well. The vents work really well, and combined with a Thermocool/Coolmax lining, should keep my head nice and cool when summer comes back.
I took the bike up to 210km/h and kept it there for a bit (for testing purposes only...officer!!), and didn't suffer from any excess buffeting and absolutely no helmet lift, which is impressive on a Brutale. I could also really notice the lighter weight!
I prefer the shape of the Schuberth over the classic Arai, and the shell size is smaller on the SR1
All in all, I took a gamble in moving away from Arai, but it looks like it's going to be the right move. Can't wait for spring.

The only issue I've had with mine was two visors cracking round the catch - one replaced under warranty, although bought mine when first came out couple years ago so they might have sorted the issue now - a very nicely made helmet other than that.

Swapped to a SharkRace R pro now which I find much less 'breezy' inside and a better visor system

How about comparing the wind noise level?

I can't say that the Schuberth is much quieter than my Arai, maybe a bit less noisy, although with the Arrow twin pipes on my Brutale, I don't think any helmet will seem quiet!!

Looks good. Looks actually much better than I would expect! What did you pay for it?

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

I paid €499,- for the helmet (retail price is €799,-), and €69,99 for the dark visor. A fair price for this quality.

That is indeed a fair price and worth the try.

I looked at the SR2, but the updates are more cosmetic and I didn't really like the new colour schemes available.

Thanks for that Dave, it looks very well vented, which is what I'm always looking for in our temps.
I like the smaller shell size, it can be clearly seen, what size do you wear, don't worry I just saw the 54/55 on the rear of the helmet.
Noise doesn't bother me as I always ride with earplugs in and have done so for probably 20 odd years.
