Racing Speed Performance

Schuberth has been developing ground-breaking helmets for Formula 1 since 2000. Punctually at the start of the 2011 season we are presenting the new SF1 carbon helmet, the latest generation of the Formula 1 helmet. Compared to its predecessor RF1, the new SF1 has a reinforced forehead area, optimised ventilation with perfect "air flow" and a new quick release system to enable the HANS straps to be changed more rapidly. According to a new FIA regulation, a new 50 millimetre wide reinforced panel can also be employed which is designed to provide added protection for the visor and forehead area.
