Schuberth SR1 Helmet The Schuberth SR-1 helmet is one of the most technologically advanced helmets available. The Schuberth 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. fiber and carbon Special glass fiber reinforced special duroplast matrix with an additional carbon layer to ensure extremely low weight The glass fiber-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 minimized 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 behavior of the helmet in the air flow is guaranteed at all times Acoustics Schuberth motorcycle and racing helmets are developed and optimized 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 is pictured with dark smoke shield for reference purposes only, dark smoke shield is sold separately.

This thing is STUNNING!!!!! I ordered an XL per my sizing. When I tried it on, it felt like a MEDIUM. If you order this helmet, I'd go up a size to be safe. I'll reorder this again.

These gloves offer NO protection for your thumbs during a crash whatsoever! To me, that's a 'Deal Breaker.'
No, I do not recommend this product.

First off, I'd like to thank the Revzilla team for their SUPERIOR customer service-these folks are "The BEST in the Biz!"
The Rukka Merlin Jacket:
Pros:
1. DAMNED this thing looks GOOD!!!! I almost hated to part with it, due to it just being a SLEEK and SEXY thing of beauty-DAMNED it looks SOOooooooo GOOD...
Cons:
2. I ordered a size 56 and normally wear a 43/44 chest. It was a bit big, I think you might want to go down a size. The sleeves are PERFECT for any type of glove fitting under the cuff,but a gauntlet will not fit over it. I tried several type-NO GO!
3. This Jacket is made in Vietnam,NOT in Finland or Portugal. I also own two other suits, which are also made in Vietnam. The two are virtually IDENTICAL,but HALF the price as the Merlin.
4. The Rukka Merlin is a fall/winter jacket to me, and that's due-in-part to the cores lack of perforation/ventilation. In temps above 80F and in stop-n-go traffic you'll bake.
5. The liner is cheap and flimsy for a jacket at this price range.
In the winter,IMHO you'll FREEZE your buns off without a heated vest. The 'Neck Gaiter' is a cute idea,but it's flimsy also.
6. The Armor isn't as BEEFY as I thought it would be,especially at this end of the price spectrum.
7. This jacket isn't very functional to me,due to it's wacky zip-from-the-left zipper system.You actually have to focus on lining it all up(Red-inner/Black-outer)or it's easy to start them(zippers) off-track. The zippers throughout this jacket and on the 'Neck Gaiter' are really a disappointment. I think that may be to me having something to compare it to that's half the price. The zippers on my other suit are FAR more superior IMO. This is a TRUE 'Deal Breaker' for me.
I expected MUCH more in the 'Quality' and 'Functionality' department from a jacket at this end of the price spectrum.Not worth the money to me.
No, I do not recommend this product.
