Here's a review from Webikeworld.com. They were not impressed with the Schuberth S-1, at least for the retail price. Here's there final assessment.

"Conclusion
Is this the "ultimate helmet"? We don't think so. Although nicely conceived and very well made, there are some features that just don't work for us. The S1 is too big and much too heavy, in our opinion.

The noise levels, while not unacceptable, are higher than we expected, especially considering the price and the design. While it may appear that we're being too hard on the S1, its high price justifies a very close look, and any faults that might have been overlooked in a helmet costing less become ,much more serious."

The Webbikeworld article leads to a question -- what are the highest all-around rated helmets? A similar thread had many riders here loving their Arai bonnets, but an broad rating article would be helpful to me. Can anyone provide a link to one?

Thanks.
