Full Carbon Shell

An exclusive, autoclave cured, carbon fibre shell handcrafted to provide a unique helmet combining light weight, solid construction and superior safety in the iconic design. Every SP1 CARBON helmet is produced in our own factory in Italy, by the same Schubert hands that produce the masterpiece SF3 FIA 8860 – 2018 ABP helmets used by several F1 drivers.

All helmets have FIA Standards.

"If a crash like the one Felipe had happened now, he would've almost certainly escaped injury," Dall'Oglio assures. But to develop such a helmet, the FIA and suppliers needed almost 10 years since the Budapest crash.


Setting New Standards

The FIA changed the test conditions for the new-standard helmets. Now they have to withstand even higher loads when struck. During the tests, 8860:2018 ABP helmets have to deflect a wedge-shaped projectile weighing 225 grams, launched at 250km/h at the very same area where the spring struck Massa. And it's this test that proved the biggest challenge for manufacturers.


At the same time, the FIA lowered the maximum peak overload values. If before they had to stay below 300g, now the test is considered failed if the loads are above 275g. Also added was a low velocity test, for hits clocking in at 6 metres per second.

"Basically we were asked to give protection against ballistic test at 250 km/h, and at the same time have the same level of protection at 20 km/h," says Dall'Oglio. "And it's very complicated. Now you have to be prepared to absorb dramatic impacts at huge speeds, but the way to achieve it is 100 percent opposite to what you need for protecting from low velocity impact.

In simpler terms, new F1 helmets have to be durable enough to withstand a front strike of 250 km/h, but also elastic enough so that even at 6m/s the full energy of the hit isn’t transferred to the drivers’ head.

"In Italy we say: you want to get your wife drunk, while keeping the bottle full," Dall'Oglio says. "We could have made a metal helmet. It wouldn't be damaged during FIA tests. But in this case, the full energy of the impact goes into your brain."

Passing the Hardest Test

To pass homologation, manufacturers had to basically redesign their helmets. Schubert helmets passed, and we are proud of this.
