Schuberth SR1 Technology Helmet
Great Expectations, Big Dissapointment
I bought this helmet hoping it would be better than my Arai. The Arai is a war horse. The Schuthbert not so much. I do like the integrated sun visor that slides down using a slider on the side. That works really well. However the noise coming into this helmet is horrible. Even with ear plugs it is loud. The helmet also feels cheaply put together. Half of the plastic rivets that hold the bottom portion of the helmet lining came out. Other than that it is an average helmet. I don't recommend.

Absolutely Awesome Helmet!
I have been using my Schuberth SR1 Tech for just over a year, I purchased from a local dealer, as they were on sale, but wanted to support this product. This helmet is incredible. I ride a 2008 Honda CBR 600rr and a Ducati Monster. The Ducati Monster, has no wind protection. I have never experienced lift and very rarely any head shake (unless I come up behind a semi-truck) from this helmet, even at speeds over 100 MPH on both bikes. Yes, you can actually feel the airflow across the top of your head. The front vent works as they say it was designed to, no air above my nose and no drying of the eyes. The fit, feel, and finish from this helmet is incredible. When you put this on and use it, you will know that your money was not wasted. It is amazing how light weight this helmet is. I am sensitive to certain fabrics against my skin and the fabric used on the cheek pads are sublime and do not have that scratchy feeling of some helmet brands. The adjustable air spoiler actually works and the difference can be felt depending on riding position; with no wind protection I leave it up, but in the full tuck with a wind screen, I will put it down, as I feel less drag. Leaving the spoiler down at lower speeds will increase air flow across the top vents at lower speeds. The visor quality and durability is also amazing and field of vision is decent. The defogging vent works okay, but the pin lock visor works great, as long as your not in the full tuck, as it slightly affects the field of vision. This is a race helmet and is noisy at speed, but you really should be riding with ear plugs in. I have used this helmet on a small track with lower top speeds and having the adjustable openings for better hearing is actually a nice feature; and they also work well around the city. I have wanted to buy a less expensive helmet for commuting, but just can't bring myself to do it after using this.

Hot Spot on Forehead
I fit perfectly in Shoei and other slightly round oval helmets but this one just really burns my forehead with a hot spot (even with +1 sizing). I had hopes (for months) and it never came close to breaking in. Tried using the spoon trick to press on the foam to create a bit more space and even that didn't get it working right. It does flow air nicely, but the vents on top are pretty stubborn to move once they get a little use and grime on the mechanism. Sorry, I really had hopes for this helmet. It is quiet, but not worth the pain at any price.

I love the look of this helmet it is truly cool but....
I purchased this helmet because it looks so cool and it is supposed to be quiet....not quiet at all I have to wear music buds or really good ear plugs...I have hearing loss and this helmet sounds like I am in the wind tunnel...My head is oblong so that could be the problem but I have owned some much cheaper scorpion helmets that very quiet.I do like the look and it weighs next to nothing and the fit is comfortable but the noise is unbearable

A Professional Break Down For You!
Bang For The Buck - This helmet is exactly what it's suppose to be and everything it's not suppose to be. You are paying $1000.00 bucks for leading technology, leading aerodynamics, functional features, lightweight, efficiency and style. This helemt is designed for speed but looks freaky fast also at slow speeds.
Comfort - Its definitely race fit tight. Requires break in time to become comfortable. Of course, it depends on your head shape.
Protection and Durability - Just about Perfect. Lots of moving parts. Seems like it would have to have something break somewhere, but so far so good. Levels and latches seem solid.
Air Flow - Insane air flow when all four vents are open. I only required the face shield vent underneath the chin guard for sufficient airflow. But it hasn't been hot out yet.
Features - Excellent thought went into the features. To many to mention. But to give you the idea, the helmet has doors you can easily open or close for better hearing. You can tune he hearing with the patches inside the helmet. Crazy awesome stuff.
Fit - I normally wear a medium, so I ordered a medium. Oh so tight. But I know this helmet will break in perfectly. It took two hours before I started feeling it right out of the box. But it's definitely "race fit". Very snug.
Noise Level - With all the vents closed and the available chin skirt (curtain) installed, with the ear gates closed, it's noisy. Not crazy noisy, but noisy. But that is totally expected with a lightweight, racing helmet made out of premium materials. Ear plugs made it hum beautifully. And I have a loud exhaust.
Weight - I have more helmets then I care to share with you. This helmet just feels incredible. You feel virtually no wind resistance and when you turn your head, you basically don't even know it's on. After five minutes of riding, you forget you even have the helmet on. It's that light.
Shape - Not round, but not narrow. More narrow then round but definitely intermediate to narrow. It's absolutely impossible to get a helmet that fits perfectly without breaking them in. Unless you're extremely lucky. Everyone's head is different. Just know it's snug, and slightly more narrow then round.
Vision - Optically perfect. You don't know good vision until you have this quality of shield. I purchased the iridium 80% shield, and it just makes this helmet look kick a**. I didn't need or use the (gross yellow) anti-fog shield. Plus it was extremely cloudy. I think it was old. Not sure. Couldn't quite figure that out, but absolutely is not needed with such good air flow in this helmet.
BOTTOM LINE - All things considered, I dropped $1100.00 on this helmet and Iridium face shield. I have a big a** smile on my face and could not be happier. I feel this helmet is worth it.
