    Schuberth E1 Adventure Review

    Well after months of waiting, I finally received the E1 Adventure. My first priority was to install a Sena 10U that I had purchased on sale a few weeks ago. I'll start with the installation and impressions of the 10U. Watch the YouTube video and follow instructions exactly. The only thing that took time was 1. aligning the speakers with your ears exactly. 2. Re installing the neck roll without breaking a plastic pin. I timed myself from start to finish at 12 mins. The next day I went out for a full day ride (7+hrs). My impressions in no particular order:
    1. Fit and Finish (outstanding). The E1 is well made and it feels like it. A very professional level helmet.
    2. Wind noise (excellent). Even with the peak and the Sena installed, the helmet is very quiet (C3 Pro). In fact it makes the music sound so much better.
    3. Peak performance (excellent). The Peak and both adjustable and removable. Even at 80+ mph very little movement (R1200 GSA). No weird noises or bad buffeting. Head checks at 80+ no issue.
    4. Visibility (outstanding). The face shield and inner visor are as optically clear as you can get. Excellent field of vision.
    5. Comfort (outstanding). For my head, the fit was perfect. I was in between sizes and choose to go with the larger size 2XL. The liner is even better than the C3Pro which I have. I had no issue with the battery of the Sena in the neck roll touching my neck. I didn't feel it at all.
    6. Venting (excellent). Clearly better than the C3Pro. The additional chin vent helps a lot. The Sena battery did not seem to impede exhausts coming out of the neck roll. The upper vent design has been changed somewhat.
    7. Sena Sound (Excellent). The sound coming from the speakers is great because helmet is quiet. I wear hearing protection and heard every note. The 10U gets the upgraded 20S speakers which are somewhat bigger.
    8. Paring (Excellent). Paired my Android phone to BMW Nav V (Garmin GPS) and then to Sena 10U. My wife (Sena SMH10) to 10U. No issues at all. But I have NOT checked out all of the features, so I did not do music sharing. Did receive a phone call and was able to receive and transmit clearly.
    9. Battery life (excellent). About 8 1/2 hours so far of constant MP3 playing and battery still going strong. Can recharge on the move (I have not evaluated that yet).
    10. Value (Outstanding). Yes, it is expensive. There is no doubt about it. But considering you essentially get two helmets (Adventure Touring and Sport Riding) it is worth it. Combine that with the Sena 10U and you have a winning combination.

    BTW Max BMW in New Hampshire is offering 20 PERCENT OFF!!!!!! They ship for free as well. That saved me a crap ton of cash.

    Thanks for the write up Jeremy. I'm actually seriously looking at that helmet as my replacement for my C3. Schuberth told me the Cardo Schuberth proprietary neck roll I have will fit. My only concern is I suffer from the Schuberth forehead hot spot on long rides. I'm hoping C3 pro and beyond have resolved this. Don't need no pictures as I've been eyeing this model on the Schuberth site for some time now. I ride an RT.

    We LGOP's gotta stick together.
