Michael Schumacher develops new 'Schuberth Race' motorcycle helmet


An F1 ex-world champ who loves bikes, and can ride harder, faster than most people? How cool is that! We love you, Herr Schumacher...

Schuberth GmbH has announced that seven-time Formula 1 world champion, Michael Schumacher will be spearheading the firm’s development of sports motorcycle helmets.

Starting with the ‘Schuberth Race’ helmet, Michael will continue to work with the German firm’s R&D division in order to develop new models. This arrangement continues a unique and extensive partnership between the German brand and Schumacher, who developed and used Schuberth helmets until he retired from F1.

The Schuberth Race is an extremely lightweight and aerodynamic helmet, with various technical and safety innovations. ‘Attention to detail has always been particularly important to me, and I don’t intend to leave anything to chance in the future either,’ says Schumacher.
