ARAIS have been my helmets of choice for years for a simple reason: they fit me well.
When a helmet is the right shape, it can have a smaller internal circumference, making a snugger fit all round.
I’ve had 59cm helmets that feel tight at the front and back of my head. This one’s 56/57cm and it doesn’t create uncomfortable pressure anywhere.
It came with a Pinlock insert in the Visor, so it doesn’t mist up.
It’s also got an internal dark visor, so you don’t have to carry a spare.
I’ve got another helmet with a similar arrangement: an outer visor with a Pinlock insert and an integral tinted one.
Although the outer visor doesn’t mist up, the tinted one inside does, and I can’t use it in town as a result.
Somehow the tinted visor in the Schuberth doesn’t.
The internal visor is also easy to open and close, with a slide-lever on the left-hand side of the shell.
It seems like a well-designed helmet throughout and it weighs 230g less than my Arai, at 1,450g.
It’s got a composite shell and a built-in Bluetooth and radio antennae for compatibility with Schuberth’s intercom system, which I haven’t tried.
It’s for touring, sports-touring and ‘even the occasional trip to the race track’ according to Schuberth.
I’m not sure any helmet is extremely quiet but it’s not loud.
Interestingly, it only gets three out of a maximum five stars in the Government’s Sharp helmet rating scheme, performing well in frontal and crown impacts but less so in blows to the temple area.
