Helmet is well made, as it should. However, primary reason for purchase was to mitigate wind noise from new FJR. Sadly, noise reduction is no better than two Shoei helmets, both full face. Schuberth should employ more/better acoustic padding and/or technology against high pitched wind noise!

This is about as versatile a helmet as you can get. I installed my Sena headset into it (which causes a bit of a problem), but I did 3500 miles in 9 days and didn't miss my old full-face Shoei in the least. Riding with the Schuberth is so much more enjoyable. I get more airflow with the face flipped up, more quiet with it flipped down, sunglasses are no longer necessary with the flip-down visor (which works with the face up or down). It's altogether a much better helmet in every respect. Fortunately I can't speak to how it does its primary function, but as far as comfort, versatility, noise and style, I can tell you that I'm never going back to a full face again. The only knock on it is that my face/chin/neck seems to be a bit constricted. I guess it's not designed with fat faces in mind. :)

The helmet fits well but something about the padding doesn't seem precisely right.I feel iut at the top of my right ear and it is annoying and never had this in 50+ years of riding. In fact, my modular Schuberth C3 Pro is fine. The airflow in this M1 and my C3 Pro is marginal at best and, probably my biggest disappointment with the brand. My Shoei and Nolan helmets are far superior here. The SRC system works perfectly (if you can figure out the instructions which are incredibly poor)and the sound quality was just fine from the speakers. It is great to have the speakers and microphone built in without the need for a boon and the SRC allows a snap on installation without the need for wiring. My advice...IMPROVE THE VENTILATION!! Open the vents, for God's sake! I can hardly feel the difference between fully opened and closed venting! Price is high and value is ok but not excellent. Oh!..and the $550 you spend does not include the pin lock lens....How cheap can you be!?

I just wanted to address the other review here, I've owned a couple Schuberth C3s now and Loud they are not. I really think Jeff either didn't install his visit correctly or there was a manufacturing error with his helmet. These are top notch helmets and I would hate anyone to be deterred from buying one based on Jeff's review. The quality, fit, and finish of these helmets are exceptional and I really feel Jeff received one that somehow slipped through quality control unnoticed and he should really contact Motorcycle Superstore about a replacement because these helmets are better than that.

My wife's medium fit perfect. I had to order up one size ( L to XL)) to get the perfect fit. Very quite and light.

The star ratings aren't really relevant in my case. Previous helmet: Shoei modular. Reason for replacement: 6 years old. Stinky non removable head liner. Reason for S2 purchase: Name. Reviews. Price (on sale). Wanted a quieter helmet, decided to move away from modular. Removable head liner. My thoughts: Helmet arrived and fit well as described. For the majority the quality is good. The bottom trim ring around the helmet fits poorly and simply feels cheap. The way it's assembled and mounted onto the helmet is disappointing. It could be because it's an interchangeable part if you upgrade to the Bluetooth headset. That shouldn't mean those of us that don't do the upgrade shouldn't enjoy the quality, especially at this price point. First ride out I noticed the airflow, and there was lots of it. As soon as I opened the front vent at my chin the noise that resulted was enough for me to decide to close the vent. I'll take less airflow over more quiet. Horribly loud. Sigh, back to earplugs. The internal visor left me scratching my head when I first saw it. It didn't seem to lower enough. Once out on the road and in the sun i noticed that the visor worked very well, easy and smooth to operate. The thing that stood out the most was because of the gap I was able to see my mirrors and gauges clearly and not through a tint... almost like bi-focal glasses. I'd just have to look down and it was clear and easy to see. I'm not sure if it was designed that way but if it was... Great idea! Shoulder checking with this helmet is a bit of an issue. The chin part hits my shoulder / chest when I turn my head, the wind seems to catch the chin too. To compare I tried my Shoei and I had full range of motion and less wind drag when shoulder checking. Very noticeable difference.
