Schuberth File - info, Q&A, discussion

We're thrilled Schuberth GmbH has brought back their fine helmet line to America. Ten years ago Trophy Cycle Apparel was one of the first dealers to introduce the original Schuberth Concept helmet later to be superseded by the C2. It had everything our clients wanted -- ease of operation, ECE rating, extreme quiet and the best internal sun visor system in the business. When distribution began to waiver then end altogether we did our best to scrounge product and parts and apologize for not always being able to meet expectations. Finally after a few dormant seasons we heard from Schuberth North America and eagerly jumped on board. We now have the all new C3 in limited release with more product slated in the next months. Some of the key features include:
  • Aeroacoustic wind tunnel tested extremely quiet low noise rating (84dBA at 62 mph)
  • One touch flip-up chin bar and anti-fog retractable sun visor
  • S.T.R.O.N.G. Fiber Shell Construction and Modular EPS Inner Liner maximizes protection and shock absorption yet weighs only 3.6 lbs
  • DOT and ECE-R 22.05 certified supersedes all Snell requirements
  • Anti-Roll-Off-System ensures helmet from pivoting off head from behind
  • Removable washable COOLMAX pad system
  • Easy-change Pinlock Visor is double glazed for condensation free operation
  • Active chin/visor venting and air intake, passive ventilation prevents CO2 concentration
  • SRC rider fully integrated Bluetooth communication system available
  • Dedicated models for Men and Women (designed for smaller head and narrower face)
  • Made in Germany

Trophy Cycle Apparel has quite a bit of experience with Schuberth. It was and remains our "pick" for the best modular flip-up helmet you can buy. That's why we don't sell its competition though there's plenty, part and parcel with our never having aspired to the "accessorywebsuperstore" business model prevalent today. Whether it be a jacket, glove, boot or helmet we simply search out the best possible product, stock it and make it our sole recommendation. No second or third tier merchandise, no quick-buck closeouts on inferior gear, no stuff just to fill space cyber or otherwise. We are selective, to a fault, which accounts for us hosting such higher-end brands as Vanson, Rukka, Held and Vendramini.

Your questions, comparisons and problems are all encouraged here. For immediate off-forum response please call 800-315-9935, anytime. We are getting more manufacturer news daily and are here as a useful resource to anyone who has owned or is contemplating a Schuberth. Welcome back.

Do not expect S1s this year or next while they go through DOT certification. C3s are here now in Gloss Black, Silver, White.

Germany-direct helmets would not be DOT. Also note that Schuberth has serial numbered and kept track of all their N. American helmets. The warranty and accident replacement program they carry would not extend to any stock purchased from outside N. American sources.

Schuberth File - info, Q&A, discussion

Who cares if a helmet has a dot cert especially if it carries ece?

Although I do remember a friend once telling me that even though IN and ILL are no helmet law states that if you do wear a helmet and it isn't dot that's illegal. Not sure if that's true but it is just asinine enough to make sense knowing how ass backwards our laws are.

The DOT rating is there whether you care or not. It will be the only way to differentiate the Schuberths sold for the U.S. market which include the 5 yr factory warranty and 3 yr accident replacement (at 1/3 retail). A very nice benefit.
