SNELL SA2020 & FIA 8859-2015

With nearly 100 years dedicated to developing head protection solutions -- and 20 years of providing the most technologically advanced helmets to top drivers in F1, IndyCar and other top series -- Schuberth presents its first motorsport helmet with both FIA 8859-2015 and SNELL SA2020 certifications: the SP1 Carbon.


The SP1 Carbon was developed with extensive wind tunnel testing to achieve ideal aerodynamics and optimum air flow. It offers a perfect aerodynamic balance that can be customized with various spoilers and ventilation scoops to meet the requirements of every type of racing. With 12 ventilation channels across the SP1's shell, optimum circulation is achieved through aerodynamic design and air flow channels built into the EPS (interior padding), providing the ideal flow for intake of cool air and exhaust of hot air.


Channels in the cheek pads allow for easy installation of radio communications. A full selection of plug & play integrated electronics are available as options. From comfortable ear cup speakers to a 3.5mm jack for your ear buds -- or a system with both! -- you can choose a mic integrated into your chin pad or a boom mic. Schuberth helmet communications options make it easy to seamlessly integrate your race comms.

How to Measure Your Head for a Helmet


Every SP1 Carbon helmet is produced in Schuberth's own factory in Italy, by the same hands that produce the masterpiece SF3 FIA 8860-2018 ABP helmets used by many F1 drivers. The SP1 uses an exclusive, autoclave-cured carbon fiber shell handcrafted to create a unique helmet combining light weight, solid construction and superior safety in an iconic design. The SP1's 3D Injected visor is directly derived from their F1 expertise, offering 12 hues ranging from transparent to dark with several mirroring and multi-layered coating options. All standard visors are Pinlock 120 lens equipped for optimum fog resistant performance. External tear-off buttons are also installed.

Balaclavas are typically not required for Driver's Education events, however they make wearing a helmet much, much more comfortable. Balaclavas will provide fire protection (if fire rated), help keep your helmet lining clean and order free by absorbing the majority of sweat while using it, and additionally balaclavas make putting your helmet on and taking it off by protecting your ears and keeping from from folding over when you helmet is worn. Discovery Parts recommends balaclavas from Alpinestars, OMP, Sabelt, Sparco, and Stand21. If you are entering sanctioned auto racing events, balaclavas will be required for fire protection.
  10. Is the SNELL SA Rating important? The Snell SA2020 certification is a safety standard established by the Snell Memorial Foundation for auto racing helmets.

It's essential for drivers to check the specific safety standards required by the racing organizations they participate in to ensure compliance.

Yes, FIA (Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile) certification is crucial for auto racing helmets, especially in the context of international motorsport events and many national and regional racing series in the USA. The FIA 8859-2015 standard is commonly associated with racing helmets used in various motorsport disciplines. Helmets certified to FIA 8859-2015 met the safety requirements set by the FIA and were widely accepted in many racing series
  12. Which helmet certification is the most stringent and the hardest to meet? The FIA 8860-2018 certification is considered the most stringent and advanced helmet certifications available for auto racing helmets, and it is often associated with top-tier motorsport categories like Formula 1.

Drivers should always check the regulations of the racing series they intend to participate in to ensure compliance with helmet certification standards.
