Schuberth SR1 Technology Helmet The Schuberth SR-1 helmet is one of the most technologically advanced helmets available. The SR1 is a super-sport helmet which has been developed for optimum performance on the racetrack, and is both ECE and DOT certified. Thanks to its advanced aerodynamics the helmet is at all times stable in the wind and even at high speeds creates no upward lift. Outer Shell The outer shell of the SR1 is offered in three shell sizes and combines an aerodynamically optimal shape suitable for racing with excellent protection Shell material S.T.R.O.N.G. fibre and carbon Special glass fiber reinforced special duroplast matrix with an additional carbon layer to ensure extremely low weight The glass fibre-carbon compound is compressed in a vacuum at a pressure of 4.5 bar to form a helmet shell which is exceptionally sturdy Inner Shell Made of specially optimized EPS foam Used exclusively by Schuberth Complex multizone foaming allows optimal shock absorption Inner Lining In addition to its excellent fit, the pad system of the SR1 also stands out on account of the complex ventilation and extraction system Double-coated Coolmax suspension, skin-friendly with very good warming properties, transports moisture Variable for effective ventilation Fully removable and washable Ergonomic design for maximum wear comfort Antiallergenic / antibacterial material Faceshield Mechanism Extremely quick replacement of the visor shield with Schuberth's push-release system Simple and convenient handling Visor shield is installed and removed without tools Faceshield is Pinlock-ready Pinlock is guaranteed condensation-free thanks to its double glazing technology Schuberth A.R.O.S. The Anti-Roll-Off System (A.R.O.S.) especially developed by Schuberth is provided as a safety feature in every Schuberth motorcycle helmet. It ensures that provided 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 neck of the rider is minimised due to the small angle of tilt The consequences of the helmet coming into contact with the chest as the result of an accident are reduced Race-proven double-D fastener system enables the chinstrap length to be set easily and precisely Aerodynamics Aerodynamic shape Upward lift 0! Directionally stable No oscillatory tendency No buffeting The D-Force spoiler enables the SR1 to be adjusted to the riding posture in such a manner that ideal behaviour of the helmet in the air flow is guaranteed at all times Acoustics Schuberth motorcycle and racing helmets are developed and optimised under scientific conditions in the Schuberth wind tunnel Installation of a wind deflector enables the aeroacoustics and consequently the noise level to be improved still further Approximately 88dB(A) at 100 km per hour (with closed machines) Ventilation Visor vent to reduce faceshield fogging 2 head ventilation inlets (adjustable) 2-way chin vent for targeted distribution of the incoming air in the helmet 3-way chin vent Variable pad system Visor vent Head vent Ventilation and cooling of the cheek pads Active air extraction system DOT and ECE-R 22.05 certified. Note Helmet ships with clear faceshield only.

I own Schuberth C3 I use when touring and over 3 years and 25,000 miles of touring have come to appreciate the uncompromising quality, fit, and finish of the brand. I got to use a Schuberth SR-1 for two days at the California Superbike School camp so I knew what I was buying when I ordered mine from Revzilla. The Large fit me perfect at CSS with their broken in helmet but I was a 'tweener size between a L and an XL in a new hat. The XL fit me comfortably but my head bottomed out in it (not good). The Large (59) fit my head perfectly but squashed my fat cheeks. I ordered the Large and after a week of my own accelerated break in, it fit's perfectly. It flows an incredible amount of air compared to any other high end helmet I've owned and yet is as quiet as any of my touring helmets. It's even got little vents in the back to let in MORE sound for riding in traffic. I couldn't be happier and even though this is one of the most expensive track day helmets you can buy, I feel like I got a great value because of the exceptional quality of the helmet.

I chose this suit because the jacket is designed to be worn without the pants. It's long enough to cover the belt line and has the extra length in the back to keep my waist covered while in the tuck on my S1000RR. It seems to be a very high quality suit for the price and has the extra features a sport/street rider would want like zippered pockets. I was initially concerned when I ordered it that it wouldn't flow enough air but it does. It's very comfortable and I can feel quite a lot of air coming through the chest and torso on it while I'm moving. Fit was snug/perfect for me at 5'10" 195 lbs in a 56.
Yes, I recommend this product.

We needed something to add some storage to a CBR250R and it fits this bike perfectly. It retains it's shape when empty and has a soft velvet material inside that protects cameras and such when riding. It also remained dry inside in a light drizzle without the rain cover on it. I've also used it on a K1600GT and it's an attractive addition for carrying those things I need quick access to when the side cases are packed.

Good quality mic with a wind cover. The mic has a very strong alligator clip firmly attached making secure placement easy. It wasn't obvious from the description but be aware that this mic will not work with older model Drift HD cameras without an audio cable adapter. The mic cable also is a 2.5mm plug which requires an adapter (3.5mm to 2.5mm) to work with the Drift adapter cable.
Yes, I recommend this product.
