Schuberth E1 Guardian Helmet

The Schuberth E1 Helmet offers adventure riders a premium modular helmet designed to perform when the ride leaves the pavement. The Schuberth design team developed the E1 in Schuberth’s proprietary aeroacoustics lab, resulting in a helmet optimized for both aerodynamic and aeroacoustic performance. Schuberth’s Anti-Roll-Off System keeps the helmet in place, while the removable and washable inner lining allows riders to keep their helmet clean in between adventures.

One of the most innovative features is the fully articulating peak visor, which can be adjusted to three different positions independently from the face shield and chin bar. The E1 can be worn with both the faceshield and peak in place, or riders may opt to easily remove either piece for the ride. The E1 also features a closable air vent in the chin bar to ensure that riders get enough air as the ride intensifies, while a removable and washable filter will help clean the air in dirty and dusty conditions.

The E1 includes a built-in antenna for Schuberth’s SRC-System PRO. Utilizing the latest in Cardo communication technology, the Bluetooth® SRC-System serves as an intercom with other riders and can connect to a GPS unit, MP3 player or mobile phone for navigation, music listening or phone calls.

Features:

  • Interior liner has been designed with fewer seams and a more universal interior fit
  • Improved EPS with integrated antennas for SRC-System which improves radio and Bluetooth range
  • Micro-lock ratchet chin strap
  • Large reflective panels on neckroll
  • Improved faceshield ratchet mechanism
  • Integrated sun visor

Outer Shell:

The outer shell is offered in two helmet shell sizes and combines an aerodynamically optimal shape with excellent protection. It is manufactured using Schuberth's typical compression molding process and thus permits great stability and a low weight.

  • Shell material: S.T.R.O.N.G. fiber
  • Helmet shell technology from SCHUBERTH permits low weight
  • Glass fiber with a special resin added is compressed in a vacuum at high pressure to form a helmet shell which is exceptionally sturdy
  • Perfected aerodynamics for higher speeds
  • Upward lift = 0!
  • Directionally stable
  • No oscillatory tendency
  • No buffeting
  • Spoiler integrated into the helmet shell

SRC-System Ready:

The E1 is equipped to accommodate the SCHUBERTH SRC-System (sold separately). To guarantee ideal radio reception, the E1 is already equipped with two integrated antennas to boost FM and Bluetooth reception.

  • Optimum reception at all times
  • FM and Bluetooth antennas integrated into the helmet for optimum reception

EPS:

The EPS foam liner is modular in design to ensure optimal shock absorption. This complex segmentation guarantees enhanced force absorption and distribution.

  • Made of specially optimized EPS foam
  • Complex multizone foaming allows optimal shock absorption

Inner Lining:

A special inner lining of the E1 was developed according to Schuberth's  innovative Comfort Fit concept that ensures the helmet fits comfortably and securely in all situations. The combination of carefully selected COOLMAX and Thermocool materials, with the additional use of Interpower coatings, also make the inner lining a highly-effective moisture removal and cooling system.

  • COOLMAX pad system, completely removable and washable (hand wash, 30°C)
  • Optimized fit
  • Variable venting for effective ventilation
  • Adjustable for summer/winter
  • Allergen-free
  • Antibacterial
  • Removable comfort cheek and head band pads

Ventilation:

Thanks to the design of the vents, the supply of fresh air is increased by up to 60%. The combination of multipath channels in the EPS foam liner and the head/chin/mouth ventilation ensures that fresh air is distributed effectively over the entire head area.

A.R.O.S. and Neck Strap:

The Anti-Roll-Off System (A.R.O.S.) was especially developed by SCHUBERTH as a safety feature and is incorporated into every SCHUBERTH motorcycle helmet. It ensures that the helmet cannot roll off of the head when the chinstrap is closed and correctly adjusted:

  • The helmet cannot pivot off the head from behind
  • The risk of contact between the chin section of the helmet and the chin or throat of the rider is minimized due to the small angle of tilt
  • Reduces the chance of the helmet coming into contact with the chest as the result of an accident
  • Precise setting of the chinstrap length through adjustment on both sides
  • Micro-lock ratchet lock

Face Shield:

The EasyChange visor mechanism makes changing visors extremely quick and simple without the use of tools.

  • City position offers maximum ventilation while traveling at slower speeds
  • Pinlock visor prevents shield from fogging

Expected more for the price
Riding BMW R1200 GSA, went from Aria Quantam2 to this helmet to reduce wind noise, integrated sun shield, and the peak. I heard good things about Schuberth but in end am not overly impressed.
Pros: I wear glasses so sun visor was a selling point. Modular works fine. Adjustable peak. Maybe 10% quieter then the Arai.
Cons: Price, no more comfortable then my Arai, would even say less. Heavier. Peak wiggles in 2 lower postions above 50mph causing whole helmet to vibrate a bit, giving off slight blurry viewing, top postion is fine, but catches more wind adn offers no sun protection. Shield does not stay up in open positions. Hwy speeds cause open shield to come down, annoying if you want to leave open. Venting is barely noticeable. Overall, very under impressed with helmet. Will I keep it, yes, the sun visor is great, would i get another, no.

Nearly Great
Over a fantastic helmet. So to the details.

The only annoying flaw I have found is the ratchet attachment. Unless the helmet chin strap pads are perfectly positioned the buckle cuts into my throat. I am not alone with this issue. When I have had this problem I pulled over and corrected it. Once corrected the helmet is wonderful. I now have used the helmet enough the chin strap issue is no longer a problem.

The exterior sunshade is flimsy. Wish it were more substantial. The sunshade is noisy on the highway so I have removed it and use it when i anticipate riding in early or late poor sun times or riding at sub 60 mph speeds....like dirt roads, etc.

The interior sunshade is fantastic. Covers the entire interior of the face shield. Not close to my face. Plenty of space. Dark, but not too dark. The operating mechanism is simple and easily manipulated.

The fit is true and the interior is very comfortable. the neck roll is no issue and it is easy to get the helmet on and off.

The best helmet feature is the ventilation. The top vents move a lot of air and are absolutely quiet. I have found the flip up/down vent on the front of the helmet useable only at slow city speeds where it flows massive amounts of air. At 40+ mph it sounds like a cyclone. Close the vent and the helmet is eerily quiet. The other vent on the bottom of the face shield comes into its own at 40+ mph and is fantastic as well as silent. Tons of air and absolutely no turbulence or wind noise. This feature alone makes the price differential from the c3 Pro worth the price. On 85 degree days my head is cool and I can feel the air move through the helmet.

Cold weather in Ohio now and the pin lock works perfectly. Zero condensation or interior fogging on cold damp morning commutes.

I would gladly buy this helmet again, however, if you have a large adams apple think twice.

Disappointed.
Having waited for years for a top quality, flip face, adventure helmet with a visor, I dropped almost a grand on the Schuberth...

Having just returned from an 18,000 mile 6 month trip with the helmet so I can say it has been adventure tested. Being able to open the face at border crossings, for fresh air, conversation or a drink of water is outstanding. Fit eventually became comfortable though not initially, and the helmet is fairly quiet when the shield is closed.

However, the helmet was an immediate disappointment. The visor fluttered and vibrated at any speed over 50 mph, the two locking tabs for the visor position sheered off after about a thousand miles - and I am meticulously careful with my gear. They seriously need to be manufactured of something other than 1/16" thin cheap plastic. In short order the face shield became so loose it would not stay open at any speed above 30 mph, in any position.

In Alaska, a dealer had replacement parts for the shield attachment plate and a new shield, but in no time the floppy face shield returned which became maddening for the next 6000 miles. The only solution for the problem was to add large thin O-rings between the shield and helmet, and shield and visor - a cheap hardware store solution for a poorly designed helmet.

My previous Arai XD and Nolan X-Lite 550 never had any issues even approaching what the Schuberth does. Both had solid visors with almost no vibration and the face shields stayed at whatever position they were placed in.

I think Schuberth's reputation is akin to the "Emperor's Clothes" tale rather than reality. Fluttering visors, wafer thin plastic in high stress points and a ridiculously poor shield ratchet system have no place on such an expensive helmet.

If driving to Starbucks is your thing, get one, but if you plan on doing any serious adventure riding for any extended time you will have issues that should never occur at such a price.

I hate the chin strap
I want to love this helmet, but I just can't. I wear a ML in the AGV Corsa, and it fits like a glove. The Medium E1 feels ok, but is still a bit tight even when considering break in. The large fits ok but doesn't give you that nice sealed fit you want in your helmet.

The biggest issue I have with the helmet is the placement of the chin strap. I have messed around with it a lot, and cannot get it to fit properly. I have owned a lot of helmets and the chin strap has never been an issue, but on this helmet, it really is annoying. It puts a lot of pressure on my jaw.

Overall the helmet is nice. It looks cool, it has a great set of features, and the built in shades are pretty awesome. I still don't understand the price or justification in buying "Adventure" helmets over standard street helmets, except for the fact that you can fit goggles to them (which most people dont). In the future I will just do a dirt bike helmet for trail days, and a street helmet for everything else. These really are just street helmets with visors.

Fantastic Helmet!
I live in Hawaii and a full face helmet can be stifling, the airflow and chin vent are awesome! I paired with the Sena 10U that integrates in helmet and am 100% satisfied with the combo.
Sun visor and flip up work great. The pinlock visor came installed so saved me the hassle of that. The sun visor works smoothly and just the right amount of tint in the sunny days.
Quiet helmet! I've had Icon and Arai and this is quieter than both.
Pinlock and airflow are great with the humidity, going from sunny side of island, thru tunnel to wet and rainy side, my visor would fog instantly and have had no problems at all with this helmet.
Fits well for me and comfortable with no pressure points digging in. was hesitant to spend this much on helmet but, not after wearing it. rode 1000 miles so far, commuting and fun rides around the island and love it. Seems light for a modular and love the flip up for quick run into convenience store and gas stops while still listening to the music or book.

The quietness is allows the bluetooth to work really well and siri voice commands work at speed, calls are clear and people can't believe I'm on the bike on a call.

Styling is nice, not too loud, kinda sporty, and of course goes with the red on my bike.
Won't be my last Schuberth helmet, I love it.

Definitely tighter than a C3 Pro of the same nominal size
I wore a C3 Pro for a year. The E1 in the same size (Large) was much tighter in the temples and has stayed tighter after a couple thousand miles. Maybe because it fits me tighter, it seems a bit quieter than the C3 Pro. I need earplugs with both. The peak visor works well. Much better than holding my left hand up in a turn to block the sun! When new, the peak visor caused the helmet to vibrate at over 55 mph. Now I leave the peak visor loose (unlocked at the tabs at the temples, but locked at the circular connectors). This way I can adjust the peak visor to three positions with my left hand while riding, and the vibrations seem to be less of an issue. At the highest position, the vibrations are not an issue. The peak visor stays in the position that I put it. (I am not riding at freeway speeds.) If I will be riding away from the sun, I take off the peak visor so the ride will be quieter. It is easy to replace it for the return trip. All in all, it is great to have the many benefits of a C3 Pro and also to not be blinded by the sun and, as a bonus, better ventilation.

This helmet is great
Schuberth E1 Guardian Helmet is a great product. The helmet visor is more lightly sloping when it compares with other helmets. Perhaps this is the reason for its stability concerning the vibration.
In spite of being a heavy helmet, it is very comfortable during the use

Can we retro-fit the visor assembly to an existing prior year Schubert C3 Pro ?
A shopper on Oct 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The visors can be interchangeable between the C3 Pro and E1.
Anthony says in the video that there is no goggle strap. However, on another retail site, it shows a goggle strap on the rear of the helmet and says "a goggle-strap holder for those days in the dirt". Has Schuberth perhaps added this AFTER the video was made?
Motor Farkle on Jan 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The helmet you're referring to is the Touratech version of the E1, the Touratech Aventuro Mod Helmet. Very similar helmet, and made by Shuberth, but these are two different animals.
Re-verification please the size chart.
It is known as Schubert E1 guardian helmet L size (59-60)?
Schubert, you know has been 1cm larger release than any other helmet.
After confirmation, please answer.

LG58-59

2XL62-63
3XL64-65

If you have any sizing problems, return it to Revzilla and exchange it for another size. Take note that there is a break-in period for the helmet to get more loose. My E1 loosened up by the 12th time I rode with it.
Anthony stated in the E1 video that it fit the same as the C3 Pro, but that was a different fitment than the "regular" C3. Can you elaborate on that a little bit? Would you say that the fitment is similar to a Schoei Neotec?
I had a regular C3, but got rid of it because after wearing it for ~1.5 hrs, my left ear would be in unbearable pain. The replacement Schoei Neotec fits great with no pain issues after long distances without removing it from my head.

Thanks!
Craig G on Nov 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My previous helmet was the Neotec size XL. When I transitioned to the E1, my size was XXXL. I have to admit to everyone that the first time I wore the helmet, it was tight and there was a little discomfort on the ear part. I got through the break-in period so by the 12th time I rode with helmet, it became perfect. For my Neotec, I used it for about 2 years. The first time I got the Neotec, the fitment was perfect but got loose througout time.
Can the inner visor be removed for cleaning?
Donald C on Feb 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Definitely and you can also replace the sun visor with a different color. Check out the different sun visor for the E1 on the Schuberth website.
I already have a sena com system that rides on the left side of the helmet. The helmet has the inner visor control along there. can a left mount external com system fit this helmet?
A shopper on Dec 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have used both the SENA 10 and 20 on my C3 (non-pro) with no issues. I mount it just behind the inner visor slide using the adhesive mount.
Is the Guardian paint scheme Matte or Gloss? Looks to be Matte but no website specifies this including Schuberth
Joseph S on Mar 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Guardian paint scheme based on Anthony's video is matte colored. I have the black matte colored E1 and I love it. Goes well with my all black Dainese D-Explorer Gore-Tex Jacket.
What is the difference btw E1 Guardian and E1 Hunter and the S2 Sorts drag other than modular? I drive a 2016 S1000XR and don't offroad.
A C on Aug 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Difference between the E1 Guardian and E1 Hunter is only graphics. The E1 is totally different to the S2. (I've never owned the S2, so these comments are not from experience with both, but I do have an E1.) You're kinda comparing an apple and an orange here..
Apart from the E1 being modular, which you already highlight, it is a redesigned version of the C3, with the addition of sun visor and chin vents. The S2 is a full face (non modular) helmet and is more like a sport helmet than an adventure helmet, so it will be totally different. I expect it will be significantly lighter and quieter than the E1, since the modular design adds both weight and noise... I like the E1, but I was disappointed with both the weight and noise levels compared to the Nolan N103's that I have been wearing until now... I expected much more from the Schuberth at twice the price. The E1 without the visor was still noisy, but otherwise, you can still remove it and you basically have a C3 with extra chin vents. Apart from the above, the S2 appears to have similar features to the E1 in terms of Shuberth construction and safety features. Hope this helps.
Is the pinlock included with the Schuberth E1 Guardian helmet? I have just received me E1 Adventure but do not see a pinlock included in the box.
Cameron N on May 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It should be already on the visor with a yellow protective sheet. You have to remove it before riding. Contact Revzilla if you are having problems.
Color or option is yellow. The E1 in Reveille video looks hiviz day comes color. Which is it?
A shopper on May 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have it and it looks like hi-rez green to me.
