Here’s a riddle for you. Something borrowed, something blue, and something wrapped in carbon fibre. Or all of the above. It’s just about lighter than a big bag of sugar, but strong enough to stop bullets. Not just that, but you can’t go racing without one…
Guessed it yet?
Of course you have. Check out Andreas Bakkerud’s Schuberth SF2 Pro race helmet. Weighing in at a featherlight 1.1kg, and constructed almost entirely of carbon fibre and aramid composites, this is one serious piece of headgear exotica.
“It’s amazing piece of equipment, and I love the way it fits, and the way it looks; but these things are stupid expensive!” Andreas Bakkerud tells us with a smile, after taking his latest podium of 2019 at the World RX of Spain.
