Schuberth C3 PRO
Aerodynamics - Rear spoiler adds 8% additional downforce for greater stability at higher speeds
Aeroacoustics - Reduced noise measured at 82 dba - Schuberth's quietest flip-up helmet ever
Ventilation - New vent scoop increases airflow to over 8 liters per second
Comfort - New plush liner materials enhance comfort and fit
Communications - Internal dual band antenna improves SRCS wireless connectivity
Light, quiet, compact - these features have characterized the Schuberth C3 flip-up helmet for years. Now Schuberth is presenting a completely updated premium partner to the base model C3 - the C3 PRO. The C3 PRO features a molded rear spoiler developed in the Schuberth wind tunnel for minimizing buffeting at higher speed riding. The internal antenna and Bluetooth® receiver enhance the communication range up to 700 meters and FM radio reception for the Schuberth Rider Communication System. The refined inner lining offers a plush, comfortable fit. The new vent scoop boosts airflow through the helmet to over 8 liters of air per second at 100 km/h. With a wind tunnel tested sound rating of just 82 dB(A), the C3 PRO is the quietest Schuberth helmet ever. The C3 PRO (and female fit C3 PRO WOMEN) flip-up helmet features over 20 additional enhancements and will be available this spring.
Based on additional research, the C3 PRO WOMEN is specially fitted for a woman's facial structure, featuring a special contour and materials in the cheek pads to better fit a woman's higher cheek bones, narrower jaw and smaller facial features.
The easy-to-install, fully integrated Schuberth Rider Communication System (SRCS C3 PRO) plugs into the C3 PRO's internal antenna for improved FM radio reception and pairing distance of up to 700 meters.
(Note: The SRCS C3 will fit into the C3 PRO and will function normally, but since it does not plug into the helmet's antenna, it will not offer the improved reception that can be expected from the new SRCS C3 PRO. The SRCS C3 PRO does not offer backward compatibility to the C3. While it will physically fit, there is no internal antenna, so Bluetooth connectivity and radio reception are not possible.)

chuberth North America Introduces Elite Motorcycle Sport Helmet: The SR1
Schuberth announces the newest addition to their line of aerodynamic, areoacoustic motorcycle helmets, the SR1. Engineered specifically for sport riders and professional racers, the SR1 has won numerous awards in the international motorcycle press and is currently worn in the AMA Superbike series by Stefan Nebel.
"The SR1 is considered to be Schuberth's 'Masterpiece' helmet and we are extremely proud to introduce it to riders and racers in the U.S. and Canada," says Randy Northrup, Schuberth North America's Vice President.
Maximum safety and comfort, combined with continuous innovation, have been the hallmarks of Schuberth helmets for decades. The new SR1 is a Schuberth product through and through. Constructed using Schuberth's proprietary methods, the shell is made with the extremely light S.T.R.O.N.G. fiber, a special fiberglass-reinforced duroplastic matrix. The smallest of the three shell sizes weighs in at about 1,350 grams. Schuberth's patented Anti-Roll-Off System offers additional protection to the infinitely adjustable D-Ring closure. The removable, washable Coolmax® liner has a hypoallergenic, antibacterial, odor-reducing treatment providing all-temperature comfort.
After countless tests in Schuberth's own acoustic wind tunnel, the SR1 boasts superb aerodynamics with optimum downforce and very low lift. The compact profile ensures the helmet sits precisely, even at high speed - eliminating buffeting and oscillation while providing directional stability. The D-Force Spoiler features 2 settings allowing the rider to further adjust the helmet to different seating positions for airflow and downforce control.
The wind tunnel optimized Multi-Volume-Ventilation ensures maximum cooling. Three adjustable air intakes in the front - two at the forehead and one at the chin - and two outlets in the back of the helmet allow optimum ventilation flowing over 10 liters of fresh air per second at 100 km/h. The chin vent has three settings that control airflow allowing the rider to choose no air, full facial airflow, or air to the cheeks only.
The SR1 comes with an anti-scratch clear face shield with anti-fog coating. A breath deflector mounted at the chin further helps prevent fogging. The new "Push-Release-System" enables users to quickly and easily remove the face shield at the touch of a button, with no tools. Pinlock® anti-fog lenses and tinted face shields in light smoke, dark smoke and silver mirror finishes are also available.
The aeroacoustics have also been optimized in the Schuberth wind tunnel. At 100 km/h, only 88 dB(A) reaches the rider's ear. The innovative Noise-Reduction-System (N.R.S.) allows the rider to open or close small openings to control the helmet's acoustics. In racing mode, the N.R.S. can be opened to enable the wearer to perceive background sounds and approaching riders more accurately on the track. In street mode, the N.R.S. can be closed to reduce noise levels without eliminating important traffic sounds.
The SR1 is certified with both ECE and DOT safety standards. The highly respected European ECE standard for motorcycle helmets is recognized in over 50 countries worldwide as well as for AMA and FIM racing including MotoGP.

Among those involved in developing the SR1 was Michael Schumacher, the seven-time Formula 1 world champion, who has been relying exclusively on Schuberth helmets since 2000 both in his Formula 1 career and in his motorcycle racing endeavors.
The story of the SR1's genesis goes back to the year 2000. Schuberth and its engineers entered the Formula 1 realm with a clear vision and an ambitious goal: "We'll build the world's best helmets for the world's best drivers." Schuberth soon partnered with none other than Michael Schumacher to wear its RF1 carbon helmet, and within a year Schumacher and Schuberth were celebrating their first world championship title together. Schumacher continues to wear Schuberth helmets and to provide Schuberth's engineers with continuous expert feedback, enabling them to constantly improve the company's helmets.
In 2006, after winning seven world championships, Schumacher announced his retirement from Formula 1. Shortly afterward, he began his "second career" racing an IDM Superbike. Schuberth immediately started developing its first motorcycle racing helmet, based on the RF1 carbon helmet from Formula 1. A few months later, the company unveiled the "Schuberth Race", a lightweight carbon helmet weighing just 900 grams (1.9 lbs) specially developed for Schumacher. Only five of these helmets have been produced to date. The Schuberth Race not only got the thumbs-up from Schumacher but also generated wider interest and demand in motorcycle racing scene.
Now, with the new SR1, Schuberth is putting the successor to the "Schuberth Race" into series production for sport riders and professional racers. After his first test rides with the SR1, Michael Schumacher remained firmly convinced, stating, "As a professional Formula 1 driver and a motorcycle racer with ambitions, I trust Schuberth and no-one else when it comes to safety and comfort - as I have for the past 10 years."
Schuberth S2 Full Face Now Available in Hi-Viz Yellow and Graphics
UPDATE (Canadian Pricing:
S2 Solid Color: CAD $769
S2 Hi-Viz Yellow: CAD $799
S2 Lines Graphic: CAD $829
Schuberth announces the S2 full face helmet, the latest in their aerodynamic, aeroacoustic motorcycle helmet collection, will now be offered in Hi-Viz Yellow and the classic-look "Lines" graphic.
"Response to S2 has been outstanding and we've received requests for Hi-Viz and graphics," says Randy Northrup, Schuberth North America's General Manager. "We know this is important to our customers and are proud to offer the premium full-face helmet in color and graphics options to match their gear or bikes."
The S2 is not just another high-end full face helmet with integrated sun visor.
It is the world's first motorcycle helmet with an internal Dual Antenna which will enhance the reception of the Bluetooth® Schuberth Rider Communication System.
The extraordinarily light and quiet S2 also features a backspoiler which is molded into the shell to reduce drag, and a full-circumference "trim spoiler" around the base of the helmet which also reduces drag and keeps air from flowing under the helmet creating noise. The internal sun visor, luxurious Thermo Cool liner and the advanced Air Extraction System make the S2 an unrivaled all-around helmet.
Schuberth Introduces the S2 Fullface Motorcycle Helmet
"Response to our award-winning C3 flip-up helmet has been way beyond expectation, but we have also had demand for a full face," says Randy Northrup, Schuberth North America's Vice President. "We listened to our customers and are proud to offer our premium full-face helmet that sets a new standard in the application of aerodynamics and aeroacoustics in helmet technology."
In addition to the unique new features, the S2 naturally includes Schuberth's patented Anti Roll Off System (AROS), the "turbulators" on the face shield to eliminate wind noise and a shell made from Schuberth's proprietary S.T.R.O.N.G. woven glass fiber material. The sporty helmet is produced using 2 shell sizes offering optimal fit throughout the size range, and is much more compact and aerodynamic than its predecessor, the S1, which was discontinued in 2006.
An updated Schuberth Rider Communication System, the SRCS-2, is being developed specifically for use with the S2 and will be available this summer. The SRCS-2, an optional Bluetooth® communication system which is fully integrated in an easy-to-install replacement neck collar, enables users to wirelessly connect to passengers or other riders, navigation system, cellular phone, mp3 player and to receive FM radio. The internal antenna which comes standard in the S2 offers enhanced radio reception and intercom range up to ½ mile for the SRCS-2. The SRCS-2 is literally a 'snap' to install and is fully functional after initial charging.
