The outer shell of the Schuberth S2 is offered in two helmet shell
sizes and combines an aerodynamically optimal shape with excellent
protection. It is manufactured using Schuberth's typical compression
moulding process and thus permits great stability and a low weight.
Shell material: S.T.R.O.N.G. fibre
Helmet shell technology from SCHUBERTH permits low weight
Glass fibre with a special resin added is compressed in a vacuum
at high pressure to form a helmet shell which is exceptionally sturdy.
The helmet shell of special EPS foam is modular in design to ensure
optimal shock absorption. This complex segmentation guarantees enhanced
force absorption and distribution and maximum safety.
Made of specially optimized EPS foam
Complex multizone foaming allows optimal shock absorption
A special inner lining of the S2 which was developed according to the
innovative Comfort Fit concept ensures that the helmet fits comfortably
and securely in all situations.
The combination of carefully selected COOLMAX® and Thermocool®
materials and the additional use of Interpower® coatings also make the
inner lining a highly-effective moisture removal and cooling system.
COOLMAX® pad system, completely removable and washable (hand wash, 30°C)
Variable for effective ventilation
Adjustable for summer/winter
Removable comfort cheek pads and head band pads
Precise setting of the chinstrap length through adjustment on both sides.
The silver-coloured appliqués of reflective material which are in
included in the nape zone of every SCHUBERTH helmet ensure that the
motorcyclist can be seen better, especially in twilight or at night.
Improved visibility = Enhanced safety

Anti-Roll-Off System A.R.O.S.
The Anti-Roll-Off System (A.R.O.S.) especially developed by SCHUBERTH
is provided as a safety feature in every SCHUBERTH motorcycle helmet. It
ensures that provided the chinstrap is closed and correctly adjusted:
the helmet cannot pivot off the head from behind
the risk of contact between the chin section of the helmet and the
chin or throat of the rider is minimised due to the small angle of tilt
the consequences of the helmet coming into contact with the chest as the result of an accident are reduced.
The helmet also has Reflex areas which improve visibility in the dark and thus contribute to your safety.
The S2 is specially set for the riding posture of motorcyclists on
tours/sporty tours and remains stable in the air flow. The special shape
of the helmet shell and the edge of the helmet closure ensure
appreciably enhanced contact pressure. The S2 creates practically no
upward lift, even at higher speeds. In addition, the S2 also offers
lower air resistance and high directional stability. The buffeting is
also significantly reduced on naked bikes.
Upward lift = 0!
No oscillatory tendency
Aeroacoustics of the S2
A quiet helmet means active safety for the motorcyclist: this permits
the rider to concentrate on riding – particularly at higher speeds.
Many hours in the Schuberth acoustics wind tunnel have ensured that the
S2 is quiet. The comprehensive acoustics package with optimised helmet
shell, wind deflector and ergonomic shape of the neck padding make the
S2 – at 85 dBA – one of the quietest helmets of all.
Acoustics package makes helmet quiet
Installation of a wind deflector enables the aeroacoustics and consequently the noise level to be improved still further.
Only 85dB(A) at 100 km per hour (with naked bikes)
Sound intensity is a phenomenon which can be explained
logarithmically/mathematically. A 10 dB(A) jump in noise level is
perceived by the human ear as a doubling of the noise level. Conversely a
drop of 10 dB(A) is perceived as a halving of the noise level.
Physically these changes in the perceived noise level already occur at
an increase or decrease of 6 dB (A). This means that the
increase/decrease in the physical load is higher than the one perceived.
Aeroacoustics are influenced by:
the position of the helmet in the air flow, depending on the driver's size and riding posture and the motorcycle's fairing
Fit of the helmet: differences in the anatomy of the wearer's head, neck and shoulder areas
change the position of the windscreen
close the gap at the bottom of the helmet, e.g. using a scarf
Innovative ventilation system
The S2 is equipped with an innovative ventilation system. The
combination of multipath channels in the EPS foam shell and the head,
chin and mouth ventilation ensure that fresh air is distributed
efficiently throughout the entire head area. The fresh air which enters
via the forehead ventilation is conducted through the inner shell's air
channels well beyond the back of the head to the rear of the helmet. The
low pressure prevailing at the rear of the helmet causes the interior
air to be extracted constantly through the air outlets and the special
mesh fabric in the neck padding.

In cold weather it often occurs that with closed air supply the
motorcyclist's neck zone becomes sealed off by hoods, scarves or
The concentration of carbon dioxide inside the helmet is a key
safety criterion for preventing symptoms of fatigue and the thinning of
No negative effects on health need be feared as long as the CO2 concentration remains below 3.5 %.
The maximum level of CO2 concentration at the workplace is 0.5 %
Even when the neck zone is sealed off by hoods, scarves or
neckerchiefs, this helmet guarantees that the CO2 concentration remains
below the 0.5% limit as from a speed of approx. 30 km/h.
In cases where the helmet is completely sealed off by hoods,
scarves or neckerchiefs, the visor ought to be opened (city-travel
position) for safety reasons when idling, for example at traffic lights,
or travelling slowly.
The S2 is by default equipped to accommodate the SCHUBERTH
SRC-System™ S2 (available in summer 2012). To guarantee ideal radio
reception for you, the S2 is already equipped with two integrated
antennas to boost reception and a Bluetooth® connection
Optimum reception quality at all times
