If you are looking for a premium touring helmet, you should check out the Schuberth S2! The Schuberth S2 helmet is a top of the line helmet with advanced features. Due to its level of quality, the S2 is on the higher end of the price spectrum, but if you consider all of the benefits that the S2 provides, you will see that this helmet is one of the best that money can buy and it’s worth every penny.
The outer shell of the Schuberth S2 is a combination of excellent protection and aerodynamic design. It was produced using Schuberth’s “compression molding process”. This gives the helmet stability while also keeping its weight down. This is beneficial because a lighter helmet will reduce the chances of fatigue while riding. The shell of the S2 was made with Schuberth’s “S.T.R.O.N.G. Fibre”. This is a glass fibre with an added special resin that is compressed in a vacuum; making the helmet exceptionally strong and durable. The shell comes in two sizes.
The interior of the shell has been incorporated with special EPS foam. This foam is going to ensure optimal shock absorption. Due to the foam’s complex segmentation, not only will you have enhanced shock absorption, but also enhanced force distribution. All of these qualities are going to guarantee maximum safety. The liner of the S2 was developed in accordance with the ‘Custom Fit Concept’. This ensures that the helmet will sit comfortably and securely in all situations. The lining is a combination of COOLMAX, Thermocool materials, and Interpower coatings that provide the liner with an efficient moisture removal and cooling system. The COOLMAX padding is completely removable, washable, and anti-bacterial. This is going to ensure that the helmet will stay fresh, and last longer than the typical lower-end helmet. The Schuberth S2 fastens using a micro-lock ratchet lock. There are also fit adjustments on both sides of the chinstrap that will provide a precise setting of the chinstrap length.
At the nape of all Schuberth helmets, there are “reflex pads”. These pads are silver patches of reflective material that allow the rider to be seen in darker riding conditions, thus improving their overall safety.
For better visibility, The Schuberth S2 comes with a pin-lock system. The pin-lock will help to reduce fogging on the face shield by using Schuberth’s “double glazing technology”. The S2’s EasyChange visor mechanism makes changing face shields quick and easy. There are three other face shield visors that can be placed on the S2. The light smoke, dark smoke, and iridium rainbow mirrored visor. All three are pin-lock ready.
Like many other helmets by Schuberth, the S2 has been incorporated with A.R.O.S. (Anti-Roll Off System). This system makes sure that the chinstrap is closed and correctly adjusted. A.R.O.S. ensures that the helmet will not fall off the head from behind, that the risk of contact between the chin bar and the rider’s chin/throat is minimized, and that the consequences of the helmet coming into contact with the rider’s chest are reduced.
The S2 has been equipped with high performance aerodynamics. It has been specifically set for tour riding/ sport tour riding, and still remains stable in the air flow. The special shape of the helmet shell provides greatly enhanced contact pressure. The helmet has practically no upward lift, even at higher speeds. The S2 is directionally stable, and has no buffeting.
One big selling point of the Schuberth S2 helmet is that it is remarkably quiet. A loud helmet that picks up a lot of wind noise can greatly increase the level of fatigue for the rider, so a quiet helmet is extremely beneficial. The Schuberth S2 has been wind tunnel tested to ensure that it has the best aeroacoustics. The S2 has a comprehensive acoustics package that includes: an optimized helmet shell shape, wind deflector, and specialized shape of the neck padding. These features combined make the S2 one of the quietest helmets on the market right now. It tested at 85db(A) at 100km per hour (with a naked bike).
The Schuberth S2 has an innovative ventilation system. The multipath channels in the EPS foam shell, and head, chin, and mouth ventilation areas guarantee fresh air distribution throughout the entire helmet. There are several intake vents, as well as a few exhaust vents. The forehead vent is adjustable and provides multiple levels of air intake. The exhaust vents create an area of low pressure behind the helmet, and effectively extracts warm air out of the helmet.
The S2 is equipped to accommodate the SCHUBERTH SRC-System. This includes a fully integrated intercom system between the rider and a passenger, bike-to-bike intercom, intercom conference mode for 3 bikers, mobile phone, MP3, and GPS connection, and integrated VHF radio with RDS. The helmet comes with two built in antennas to boost reception and Bluetooth connection. This system provides optimum reception at all times.
The Schuberth S2 is without a doubt a remarkable helmet loaded with only the best features and accommodations while also maintaining a high level of protection and safety. Check out the Schuberth S2 helmet and other Schuberth products on our website: CompetitionAccessories.com!
