Michael Schumacher´s gold-plated helmet, Spa, 2011 "20 years F1"
Michael Schumacher (Mercedes GP Petronas), will be celebrating yet another
historical first at the Grand Prix of Spa-Francorchamps: Twenty years after
his debut in the premiere division of his sport, the 42 year old is still

His star launched its incredible ascent on 25 August 1991. On 28 August
2011 it will truly shine in gold.
Helmet manufacturer Schuberth will present 7-time world champion Michael
Schumacher with a special helmet to commemorate the day in grand style --
with 21-carat gold plating.
This Movie shows the "Making of" this very special helmet, plated with

How to choose and fit a new motorcycle helmet
In this video Schuberth North America's Technical Communication Manger Mike
Talarico provides some tips on how to choose a new helmet as well as how to
make sure it fits properly.
Below are all 3 Steps as well as the Schuberth size chart.
Step one: Research
Make a list of features that suite the type of riding you will be doing, as
well as some must have features. Bring this list with you to your local
dealer when trying helmets on.
Some features to think about are:
Faceshild mechanism and ease of use
Integrated sun visor
Safety standards (ECE 22.05, SNELL, DOT etc.)
Comfort liner (fully removable? machine washable? moisture wicking?)
Clarity of Faceshield and Visor (are they optically correct)
Materials used in construction
Warranty (3 year, 5 year)
Step two: Measure your head
Use a soft tape measure to find the circumference of your head along your
"brow" line. Normally this is done about 1 inch about your eyebrows. Use
the chart below for Schuberth helmets:
Size Measurement (cm)
Size Measurement (in)
Step three: Try Helmets on
Try on as many helmets that meet your criteria as possible. Make your best
attempt to leave each helmet on for at least 15-20 minutes. With the helmet
on, make note of any pressure points that may develop as they will get
worse when you are on the bike. If pressure develops, try the next size up,
keeping in mind that every brand is not right for every head shape... the
next size up may be too big. Sometimes the brand you want, is not designed
for your head and it may be best to go with a different brand.
Once you have completed all three steps, you are ready to move onto the
three fit tests.
1. Use your pinky finger and press lightly between the helmet and your head
in three areas, first in the center near your forehead, second on the left
side near your temple and third on the right side near your other temple.
When doing this make note of any gaps, here you are trying to gauge how if
the helmet provides even pressure around the head.
2. Left and right movement.
Brace your neck and shoulders and move only the helmet to the left and
right. During this test, the skin on your face should move with the helmet.
If the skin on your cheeks and face is not moving, you will want to try a
3. Up and down movement.
Follow the same process as fit test step 2, bracing your neck and
shoulders, this time moving the helmet up and down. Similarly, the helmet
should move the skin on your forehead and cheeks here as well. Again, if
the skin on your face does not move with the helmet, or if the helmet moves
too freely, try on a smaller helmet.
