Schuberth M1 - Plain
The eye port on the M1 is incredibly wide even for an open face helmet. This gives you close to unlimited vision even in the periphery making the M1 ideal for navigating city traffic. If the sun starts shining you won’t have to stop to change visors when wearing the M1. This helmet comes with an integrated sun visor controlled by a slider on the lower left of the shell. This is easy to use even when wearing gloves. The M1 is made from fibreglass reinforced with a special resin that makes it extremely strong. That along with the EPS foam liner mean you can trust the M1 to keep you protected in the event of a fall.
Schuberth have made the M1 a fantastic choice for anyone after a helmet that offers top of the line technology and high performance.

When you order a helmet online we can only accept a return when the helmet is unworn and HAS NOT been used out on the motorcycle. When you receive your helmet, please try it on for around an hour in the comfort of your home, do not go out on the motorcycle with it. If the helmet is too loose or is too tight, get in touch and we will help to provide a return.
Circumference Measurement: Wrap a measuring tape around your head starting from the centre of your forehead. Measure about an inch above your eyebrows and hold tape comfortably snug. Take the length and complete it again for good measure. Use the largest of the two readings.

Schuberth helmets were founded in the 1920’s in Braunschweig, Germany. They produce over 1.5 million helmets each year, both under their own brand name and also as BMW brand helmets. A renowned leader in Formula 1 auto helmets, they also supply to 65 armies worldwide, national fire services as well as industry specific headgear for mining, construction, oil/gas, steel, forestry and energy. All of these require exacting professional standards for their specific needs, and for that reason Schuberth have an enviable breadth and depth of manufacturing and engineering experience.
From F1 To SR1
Schuberth often bring their engineering insights from working on different helmets for different industries to bear on their motorcycle helmets. Probably the best example of this is their SR1 helmet range, inspired by their Formula 1 range and designed in close collaboration with Michael Schumacher himself.
These supersport helmets are beautifully designed with a solid feel to every part of the helmet, from the shell itself to the way the moving parts click smoothly and effectively into place. Comfort and durability are both very high quality, and of course they benefit from the most unique feature of Schuberth helmets – they are extremely quiet at high speeds.
Silence At Speed
Schuberth helmets are one of very few manufacturers who have a dedicated wind tunnel in which to test their helmets. During testing, Schuberth helmets are not only optimised aerodynamically but also aero-acoustically too. That is to say that not only does the wind tunnel ensure that your Schuberth helmet remains stable at speed but also remains as quiet as they can possibly be. The current C3 Pro flip front helmet for example has a noise level of less than or equal to 82dB(A) at a constant 100km/h setting a new benchmark for the whole industry.
That's especially good news for riders with tinnitus or sound sensitivity, as we know that ear plugs cannot be relied on to completely protect your hearing in all circumstances.
It's much more than just a helmet for protecting damaged ears, though – without earplugs or helmet, wind noise alone can reach 115 decibels on a motorbike, as much as a loud rock concert. Since decibels are measured in a logarithmic way, this is a huge difference! Logarithmic measurements are like the Richter scale (used to measure earthquakes) and that means that:
Moving from 10 decibels to 20 decibels means that a sound is about 10 times more intense.
Moving from 90 decibels to 100 decibels also means that a sound is about 10 times more intense.
A Schuberth C3 Pro flip front helmet is therefore nearly 2000 times less intense than unfiltered wind noise!
That means that a C3 Helmet is useful for safeguarding your hearing before you hearing can be damaged by excessive and continuous exposure to loud noises. As well as being exceptionally aerodynamic and quiet, the C3 range is also notable for being incredibly light, making it a great choice of helmet if comfort is of high importance to you.
It is no accident that Schuberth work with BMW so well; they are a great partnership, both offering high quality German engineering with a focus on providing understated luxury and comfort in addition to the features you expect from a high-end product.
Schuberth Helmet Extras
Schuberth have a few extras that help their helmets stand out from their competitor ranges.
The Anti-Roll-Off-System or A.R.O.S. is a safety feature that is included in every Schuberth helmet, and makes sure that the chinstrap is closed and safely adjusted. The A.R.O.S. means that the helmet cannot pivot off the head from behind and is less likely to cause damage or come into contact with vulnerable areas during a crash, which is important for safety.
Reflex pads also demonstrate Schuberth's commitment to safety, as reflective "Reflex" areas ensure that the motorcyclist is easy to identify and avoid in dark conditions. Early recognition and recognition from a way off means that passive safety is greatly improved by these areas.
Working its way through the planning and design stages for years to ensure it is exactly as good as it can be, the long awaited SRC-system (Schuberth Rider Communication system) can be integrated into the Schuberth helmet acoustic collar within minutes. This Bluetooth communication device has a wide range of functions including, rider-pillion intercom, mobile phone, MP3 and GPS connectivity, bike to bike intercom (up to 300m) and a built in radio. Come in store and check out this amazing technology from Schuberth helmets.
Infinity And Schuberth
At Infinity Motorcycles, we've been Schuberth helmet stockists since the first Concept models were brought into the UK, our stores have staff trained by both the UK importer and Schuberth themselves. We would always recommend coming into a store in order to get a good fit and advice on the right helmet for you, but if that is not possible you can buy online thanks to our 7 Day Exchange policy on helmets.
In addition to the standard two year warranty, all Schuberth helmets bought from Infinity Motorcycles since January 1st 2014 are eligible for an extended warranty.
Having returned to motorcycle recently I was looking for a good quality helmet. This Schuberth helmet is really comfortable and fits well. Excellent forward vision. Well pleased with my purchase and looking to by the blue tooth adapter for the internal communications feature.
A really comfortable helmet
I bought this for a trip to the far east and had used it on my Triumph Rocket in the UK over the last couple of years. It's very stable and pretty quiet. My main thing with it is the comfort and lightweight. I go on very long trips, sometimes 12 hours plus in the saddle so want something that's not going to give me a headache, and this ticks the boxes very well. I haven't invested in the optional Bluetooth so can't comment on that, but apparently, it has speakers and a microphone already built in for it's Bluetooth unit. The vents work ok and are very easy to use. I like the ratchet chin strap though I had my reservations at first, I'm just used to D rings. I haven't bothered with a pinlock either as I only use this in the summer. If you're after a quality open face lid then I'd suggest you have a good look at this, I think it's a good helmet, it certainly works for me on long trips.
Brilliant bit of kit
Just used this on a tour of Northern Spain in conjunction with the SRC Comms Kit. Helmet great quality and very comfortable, comms worked really well especially with telephone voice commands Would highly recommend - can't wait for peak kit to be available
Although I do own a flip front helmet I do prefer open face ones. My Momo Mangusta finally needed replacing and saw the M1 when trawling the net. In a word it is brilliant. I do go abroad a lot so opted for the optional comm's unit. Pairing everything up was relatively simple and doing a sixty mile test found it very good. Messages from the Garmin coming through loud and clear and the MP3 also fine, have yet to try the phone but am sure it will be ok. Has got to be the best open face hemet available. No untidy wires or boom mike. Expensive but worth it, good build quality and the quietist open face I have ever owned.
