The first really good helmet i have ever had!
The first thing is it was on sale. The first day i rode to work i did not put the pin lock visor on bad mistake fog all the way to work.Second day install the pin lock visor no fog work very good. The seal on the shield is very good. All i can say it is like night day with those other helmets the $100 and $200 kind. If you buy one you will love it.

extremely noisy compared to my old AGV helmet evo. but I can not deny that it feels very good at high speed on a naked bike, the only thing is that it is noisy. Would not recommend if you are looking for tranquility, but if you have a naked bike and do not want to feel discomfort in the neck recommend

I ordered this helmet for it's rated quietness and, well, because I wanted one.
There is no questioning the quality of design or build. It's everything I would expect from Germany. As for the noise level I was not blown away. It is quieter than the Bell Vortex I was using but not when one considers the price. The Vortex is around $180 and the Schuberth even at a discount is almost twice that. In a crosswind it's still howls. The Vortex meets The DOT ( as most helmets and a rather dubious distinction in my opinion) and also the Snell 2010. I bought the Bell because of it's price and rating which I considered a great value. I was expecting a staggering difference with the Schuberth and I'm not so sure it delivers. I guess time will tell. I don't know how the ECE rating compares to the Snell and I hope I never have to find out.
The Schuberth is a bit narrower than the Bell but still comfortable. I'll update after a summers use.

Love airflow and its adjustability, the drop down sun shield, wide view.
Size chart indicated an XL for me at 23.5" but it was snug. I swapped it for an XXL and love it. Am not crazy about the ratcheting latch chin strap - may take getting used to. Being an older rider I'm more used to D rings. I love the helmet though.

Very quiet, but poor airflow.
Great features like the ability to integrate their audio system. The shaded visor flips down very easily and with authority. The pinlock system is great. I don't know how I survived in Portland so long without it. Normal complaint for this helmet is lack of good venting, but maybe that goes along with it being so quiet. Check the size chart before ordering. They run small but say the correct circumferences right there on the size chart.

Amazing air flowing inside the helmet. The sun shield could be larger. Very quiet.

The best helmet i have owned
I was fortunate to get the Shuberth S2 on sale and it is a very good helmet.
The drop down visor is great, and saves you from having to carry (and pay for) an extra visor. Visibility is at least as good, or better then other helmets I have worn.
I wear a large and this one, with the stock liners, fits very snug. It is a little hard to pull on and rather difficult to get off. Feels like I am trying to rip my ears off, but while on, it feels perfect with no pressure spots after wearing it all day. So I put up with the tight pull off knowing that it has proper fit in case of an impact.
The snug fit and lightness of the helmet almost makes you forget that you have it on.
As advertised, the noise level is quieter than my other helmets, but the overall noise level depends entirely on which motorcycle I am riding. When full in the wind, or tucked in on my Ninja it is very quiet, however, when on my sport tourer, where the windshield causes the buffet area to hit squarely on the helmet, there is more noise, although still quieter than my other helmets and nothing that earplugs (which I usually wear) won't cure.
Ventilation is not great, but good, especially on the chin vent, although when open behind the windshield, causes an unusual amount of air noise. Again, tolerable with ear plugs, or just lower the windshield to get more air on the face.
The ''Pinlock'' shield does a great job of keeping the shield from fogging, however I wear glasses which tend to fog regardless, having to frequently ride with the shield slightly open in cold temperatures. Certainly not the helmets fault.
The bayonet latch chin strap is a pleasure, saving time and sometimes frustration, when putting the helmet on or taking it off.
I would buy this helmet again, and recommend it to a friend.
