The Schuberth SF3 is specifically tailored for the advanced ballistic protection (ABP) standard used in Formula 1.If you are looking to own a Schuberth of your own, you may be more inclined to use a helmet that is more suitable for your specific requirements.

The Schuberth SF4 is the 8860-2018 (non ABP) helmet. This is widely used in the top motorsport categories outside of Formula 1 including the World endurance championship (WEC), IMSA, European Le Mans series, GT world challenge and the Asian Le Mans series due to it's wider aperture for a larger field of vision within a close cockpit car. 

Using the technology first developed for the SF3 helmet, the SF4 combines the iconic Schuberth sleek and aerodynamic shape along with a strong, lightweight shell carbon fibre shell.

If the championship you race in doesn't require an 8860 standard helmet but a 8858 standard then the Schuberth SP1 is the option you need. Much like the SF4, the SP1 has it's DNA routed in the SF3, using a very high calibre carbon outer to maximise strength and weight.

All Schuberth visors, screws and vents are interchangeable between their whole range. The exact spares available to an SF4/SP1 driver are of the same batch as the Formula 1 driver's accessories.
