Schuberth S2 Lines Helmet The Schuberth S2 arrives after years of extensive engineering. The ultra-quiet S2 spent hundreds of hours in Schuberth's aero-acoustic wind tunnel to ensure optimum aerodynamics with reduced drag and lift for the quietest possible performance. Schuberth's industry-leading triple-matrix shell allows the S2 to be significantly lighter while still providing outstanding ventilation and comfort. General Features Compact and lightweight Triple Matrix Shell Antibacterial, hypo-allergenic microfiber liner Extremely quiet 85db at 65 mph Integrated, drop-down sun visor Fog-free Pinlock dual lens system shield and lens included Patented Anti-Roll-Off-System (AROS) Integrated 31 inch FM antenna and Bluetooth receiver antenna greatly improves range and reception for the optional (sold separately) fully-integrated SRCS Bluetooth communication system 2 shell sizes Exceeds ECE and DOT standards 5 year warranty Shell Glass fiber is pressed at high temperature under high pressure and the addition of special resin in vacuum to a helmet shell with exceptionally high strength The helmet shell made of special EPS foam is designed to optimize the shock absorption properties EPS features optimized impact absorption properties by using a complex multi-density foam Interior COOLMAX interior, fully removable and washable Optimized seat shape Skeletonized for effective ventilation Allergen-free and Antibacterial Interchangeable comfort cheek pads and liner padding Micro-Lock ratchet strap Faceshield Pinlock faceshield ensures a condensation-free view City setting cracks the faceshield slightly Easy change visor mechanism allows for extremely fast and easy faceshield replacement Tool-less shield replacement AROS Anti-Roll-Off-System Specially developed by Schuberth, the AROS is a safety feature which, in case of an accident, ensures the chin strap is closed and properly adjusted. The helmet can not rotate off the head from behind Smaller tilt angle of contact between the chin of the helmet and the chin or neck of the rider The consequences of accidental contact with the chest of the helmet can be reduced Notes Helmet ships with clear faceshield only. Top vent on White/Blue/Red helmet is black, not white as shown and top vent of White/Red/Green is white, not black as shown.

Just got my new helmet this morning and rode all day with it!! I think it's awesome!!
Great price, plus Zilla cash I applied to it made it even a better buy!!
-It's a beautifully made helmet and I love the graphic.
-It's very comfortable and the most luxurious interior of all the helmets I've had and those were on the high end.
-Love the way it's constructed and I find the chin clasp doesn't bother me at all like I read that it bothers a lot of folks. Much to be said for German engineering and extensive R&D in the wind tunnel.
-Air flow is excellent. Probably better than all my other helmets.
-I love the way the visor comes off...easy as pie!! Goes back on the same way.
-Has the pinlock feature which is a good thing for preventing the interior from fogging up. It works!!
-The drop down sunvisor is excellent, but I will still carry my sunglasses.
-If I had a complaint, it would be the noise from the wind flow over the helmet. I find it is no quieter or louder than any of my other helmets and I will wear hearing protection when I ride.
Overall I believe it will get better as it breaks in...
I highly recommend it, but do your research first!!! As with all other helmets, it may not be for everyone.
Remember, 4 wheels moves the body...but two wheels moves the soul!!

Got my X-Moto jacket and pants in the Sand color today!! After adjusting my gear how I wanted, I set off on a nice 150 mile mid-afternoon (73 deg. and no rain ride on my '08 BMW K1200S, including city streets, freeways and 50 mph. plus not gonna say what the plus was...LOL) two laners in the country. I am an athletic 5' 11" and 181 lbs. I ordered a LG. jacket and 34" waist pants.
They fit like a glove!! The jacket is just a tad tight with both liners in but very liveable for me. Any way I took both liners out of the jacket and liners from the pants and was very comfortable. The waist size in the pants is "true" so if you want these as an over pant you'll need to go a size or two larger depending on your preference. I didn't give it an excellent rating for "Protection and durability" category cuz I only had a sunny day to ride. I love the use of snaps and zippers all around. I would much rather have those features than velcro but I'm just knit pickin'. My only real complaint is that I would like for all pockets on the front of the jacket to be larger. They're supposed to be cargo pockets but really don't hold that much and the pants ventilate well however you get no ventilation in the seat/crotch area and that's where it's crucial. My other complaint would be that Olympia raised the price this year and made no improvements over last year which is why I didn't give it the top rating in the "Bang for the buck" category, but this gear is still a good value for the money.
For a first ride I can only say good things about this gear. It's comfortable, ventilates well, it's built to last and fit and finish is excellent and it looks great!! I definitely recomend both the jacket and pants. Those who know me know I do my homework before spending and I don't like wasting money!! You absolutely cannot go wrong with this gear for the money spent!! Great value.
The service I got from the folks at RevZilla was top rate. I had questions...they answered and made sure I was happy with my purchase!! The shipping was quick and the product was packed neatly. I'll definitely be a repeat customer!!
