The all-new 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.

  • 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

Note: Helmet ships with clear faceshield only.

Schuberth S2 Helmet 4.2 5 59 59
noisier than expected on a monster I got the s2 as an upgrade from a Shoei RF-900. S2 is much lighter and more comfortable. I commute a lot, and at <80km/h I used to ride with sunglasses and visor up on the shoei. I hoped to use the integrated sun visor in the same way on the s2, but the wind gets deflected directly into my eyes, making this impossible. With the helmet closed up, I find the S2 boomy, to the point where it is louder than my old Shoei at speeds over ~80km/h The noise abates if I lean forward or way back, so if you have a more upright or more forward posture, this might not be a concern for you. I can also cut the boominess by lifting my hand to my chin, so I might find some kind of chin curtain to help out. The one supplied with the helmet only helps keep the cold out. Air flow is good at speed, but I haven't used it on any very hot days yet. I expect it to be warmer than my Shoei when stuck in traffic in high temps. The pinlock works fantastically at keeping the visor fog-free, but the sun-visor can get fogged up in certain conditions. Overall I recommend the helmet, especially since the price has come down, but I'm not as pleased as I'd hoped I would be. If I do much highway or touring, I'll wear ear plugs. (I never did with my Shoei) May 20, 2015
Excellent Quiet Comfortable but the Chinstrap sucks I've got about 7k miles on this helmet and am glad I spent the extra money on it. I wanted a quiet full face for and didn't like the C3. The S2 looks way slicker. Previously had a carbon Shark but this is much quieter on the highway. My only major gripe is the buckle chin strap - its position + length touches my neck with no padding around it and its can be uncomfortable if its in the wrong spot. If you have a double chin, big adams apple, or thick neck this helmet is likely not for you. I prefer european buckle straps but in this case a D-ring strap would have been better and solved this issue. I was concerned about my Sena SMH-10 bluetooth intercom fitting but I used the extra adhesive they provide and its perfect. You can't use the clamp feature because the helmet has a lip that interferes. You also have to use the adhesive for the earpieces to stay in place but it works fine. Pros: - High quality German finishing and engineering - Quieter then any other full face (from my knowledge) - Comfortable but firm fit. Not overly plush and doesn't get sloppy - replacement inserts available - internal sun visor is good. Could be darker but its fine. - Visor clarity is good - no distortion or spotting - tight seal. Hasn't leaked in rain - No buffeting. Shoulder checks are smooth with no wobble. - Super easy to open mouth vent for airflow/fogging. At first I thought it was too loose but takes a quick flick and is open Cons: - The chinstrap position irritates my neck and often needs adjustment - visor scratches very easily - visor replacements are expensive - Airflow could be better. Not bad, but would like more - Some helmets offer larger field of view (particularly top/bottom requires me to move my head to see my speed) Expensive but great helmet overall. Fits true to size. If you're ordering this helmet make sure you try it on for an hour WITH THE CHINSTRAP BUCKLED to see if it irritates you. May 9, 2015
Very Good Helmet Great Helmet! Looks good, nice visor system and has internal smoke visor that can slide up and down. Already built to have integrated Blue Tooth etc. put in so overall it has just about everything one could want in a helmet. I'm happy with it. May 4, 2015
Awesome Sauce!! Keep in mind i have no windshield on my ride, this review is based on ride 09 Can-Am Phantom Spyder and i always ride with ear plugs. I upgrade from the Shoei X-11 and i have to say that the difference was blazingly apparent on the first ride. As far as noise, yes it is much quieter than the Shoei, but, it is a helmet it's not silent, but after riding the Shoei for a year i noticed a huge difference in noise disturbance and especially stability at speed. When i drive down the thruway at 70 plus mph in the Shoei my head would get tossed around and blind spot check required a great deal of effort. i would usually have a sore neck after 40 miles or so, not the case with the S2. At 70 plus mph i was able to just relax on the bike, in all riding position tucked, 3/4 and straight up, the helmet remains stable and checking left and right is much easier and stable as well. I found the construction to be excellent, the drop down visor is adequate. However, i still had to buy the dark smoke shield as I like it darker. Air flow is fantastic, from the top and front of the helmet. The chin strap is easier that the D-ring setup to operate, but can some time b a bit uncomfortable. I recently rode it in 27 degree weather in buffalo NY and my head stayed nice and warm. Overall, for $500.00, it is a lot of bang for the buck. April 27, 2015
An embarrassment to German made products Wow! This is a true embarrassment to German made products. I've used German made products all my life include 6 German cars (3 BMW's and 3 Benz) and I'm writing this review because I'm furious about the package I received last night. I've owned Joe Rocket RKT101 which I gave to my son and just bought the Speedmaster from Revzilla for myself. The Speedmaster is a bit on the noisy side and I decided to keep it as a second helmet and find another with better noise protection to use as my primary helmet. I was also interested in something with an integrated sun shield and communication system mainly to listen to music and receive calls. I currently use UClear with my RKT helmet. I read and watched almost every information about the Schuberth helmet and compared it to Shoei and Arai because they claim to be the quietest helmet available. I was so exited when I looked at my tracking and the helmet was delivered. I took the package home, opened it and was extremely disappointed. BTW, I ordered the helmet and the SCR-S and they both came in the same box. The package was nice and I picked up the helmet to fit it on my head. First I noticed that the sun visor was disconnected from one side, I connected that but noticed the poor quality of that visor and pretty much everything I touched on that helmet. The main liner was loose inside the helmet and when I tried to connect it, I noticed that the plastic mount in the front of the helmet, where the liner normally snaps in, was unglued from the helmet. This is not suppose to happen for the life of the helmet. Simply, the helmet looked like something you bought from a defective products store that didn't pass through any sort of quality inspection/control and was setting in a store shelf as a floor model for a couple of years. Finally, I put every thing together, decided to try the fit of the helmet anyway and thought to myself maybe this is just a faulty product and if it fits nicely, I may just replace it for a new one (thats what I though I paid for in the first place...ugg!). Also, kept trying to convince myself that its light weight (which it is), and had the integrated communication system (which I think is better than having a device sticking out of your helmet that my interfere with the air flow and the performance of the helmet). Once the helmet was on my head I was disappointed again. I 'm size 71/4 in hats, ordered a medium. the sides of the helmet fits nice and snug but the section in front of my mouth is protruding so far to the front and looks funny. I can easily fit my fist underneath the helmet in front of my chin. Anyhow, writing this review is making me even more frustrated just thinking about the poor design and quality of this helmet. Off course I put the helmet immediately back in the box, and now its setting waiting to be returned back. Therefore, I can't comment on anything related to riding with this helmet, air flow, noise....etc. April 21, 2015
Excellent product Great fit, quite and comfortable! Right size on first try. April 13, 2015
Head shape and opinion has something in common....every one has one of their own As I mentioned before everyone has its own head shape and his own opinion so here is mine: Pros: Looks cool, aggressive Perfect finish Very light in paper Pin lock and internal sun visor Cons: Very loud for the price The hot spot on the center of forehead common on the c3 is not solved with this helmet. It just feels heavier than it actually is Even though feels very snug for me and the forehead hot spot is killing me it shakes as is it was to big for me, this may be because of shape and weight distribution April 9, 2015
Sweet helmet. Comes with pinlock! I just upgraded from my 8 year old Shoei RF1000 (yes, that's 1000, not 1200 folks) and couldn't be happier. I always loved my Shoei but wanted something different for my next helmet so was stuck between an Arai or the Schuberth. The price on this helmet dropped to $500 so that made my decision easy! The helmet feels amazingly more stable at highway speeds when in the tuck, as it was getting thrown around all over the place with that old Shoei. Head checks are easier now too. The lining and neck collar ring padding is all quality. Defiantly a step up. The entire helmet looks and feels like a premium product. It comes with a really nice lightly padded bag and the pinlock antifog system. This helmet is a great value at $500. March 29, 2015

A shopper asked: Anyone out there apart from couple of guys WHO wrote reviews on the helmet have experienced the high and annoying whistling sound when moving your head a couple of degrees to either the right or left?

Schuberth seem to be ducking when approached with this issue and only asks to have the helmet be sent to them in Germany for testing and adjustments.

I have to believe that this is due to a pie design aspect and that it has to be evident in all S2 helmets, yet not that many people are complaining! Why is that?

Erik S: I don't hear any additional noise or whistling when turning my head to check for lane changes, general awareness of my surroundings, or site-seeing.

I do use earplugs, but I don't believe I'd have any complaints even without them.

So why is nobody complaining? Maybe nobody has this complaint.

Jimmy A: Check to verify that the pinlock anchor remains in place and has not fallen off. If so, that little hole may be the source of your noise problem. There may be an extra anchor in the bag with the pinlock visor. Jul 22, 2014

Mosey L asked: Has the S2 ever had any minor revisions? I've noticed many reviewers saying the liner blocks the air vents inside at the top of the helmet. Has the liner been reworked or is the issue still current? Jan 27, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
david h: The liner has two small tabs that can be folded over by the two top vents. This is designed that way to allow you to minimize airflow in cooler temperatures. You can trim or cut them off if you prefer. I like the helmet and have no complaints at all. Other than buy a decent lock or take it with you when off the bike, the name and price will attract the vultures.

As far as if any revisions I don't know.

Greg A: I've not really experienced that issue. I have 2 S-2 helmets and I'm quite please with the ventilation. I've not heard that they've made any revisions.

Quality helmet though. You won't be disappointed. Get the SRC system as well. Worth every penny.

A shopper asked: Is sizing the same for the S2 and the C3? May 16, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jeff915: I say no. My head measures 61 cm and is "intermediate oval." I tried on a C3 (size XL) at Revzilla and it didn't fit well at all--pressure point in the center of my forehead. The S2 fit me much better and that's what I wear now.

The sales guy at Revzilla indicated that the C3 tends toward a round fit while the S2 is slightly elongated.

Reply to Jeff915 Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
zenworm: Yes. I tried on a Medium C3 at the dealership and then ordered a Medium S2... same exact fit. The C3 was a bit more snug underneath my chin by virtue of how the modular is designed, but everything else was the same. Jun 12, 2012

pfarrell: I own both helmets. The C2 has a MUCH better liner than the C3 on my head anyway. The fit and finish is better on the C2 as well. the C2 is a slightly longer oval than the C3, it is not more narrow though. Jul 10, 2012

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
pfarrell: No. It's a totally different system. The C2 has an integrated antenna. Hopefully this will solve the issues/shortcomings of the C3/SRC. My experience has been that the C3 with SRC is pretty unreliable with rider to rider communications.... Jul 10, 2012
Reply to pfarrell Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Jeff915: No, the SRC system for the C3 is specific to the C3 shell.

But the SRC-S system is now available for the S2 helmet, and it's actually an updated version of SRC. Cardo makes both systems, and my understanding is that SRC-S is based on Scala G9 while SRC is based on Scala G4. All of the systems are compatible with each other, however.

David C asked: I currently wear an Arai RX-Q, size L, which is my favorite and best fitting helmet. I also have the Shoei Neotec which I like because of the built-in, drop-down visor. I am curious about a full face helmet with built-in drop-down visor, and, am considering the Schuberth S2 or the Shoei GT-Air. I know these are top of the line helmets but I am wondering about the "fit" vs the Arai RX-Q. I've read that S2 is better suited for an intermediate oval shape, which is my head shape. I think this is true for GT-Air. I'm not flush with cash but I won't skimp on helmet, but, this is a significant investment. Looking for any opinions, experience, comments, advice about S2 and the GT-Air (actually, I wish Arai could figure out how to include a dropdown visor in the RX-Q)? Thanks to those who read and respond. Tex Apr 3, 2014

Larry R: Hey Dave, I had a Arai Corsair V for about 5 years before I got the Schuberth S2. I had size large for the Arai and size large for the S2. They both were snug at first but broken in quickly. The S2 is a little more difficult to on and off but the noise level is way lower than the Arai. Both had good visibility and I think the Arai has a little bit better airflow but the S2 hasn't got hot inside (I live in California) as I have ridden in 90 degree weather. I do like the built in sun visor (just wish it was darker) because I don't have to hassle carrying different lens when traveling from day to night riding. The S2 is about a grand if you get the SRC system which I recommend. Yes it's very pricy but well worth the money if you done any long distance riding. The sound quality is very good. I have the SENA in my Aria and I thought it was good until I got the S2 SRC system. I suggest you got to you local BMW dealer and try on the S2 and your favorite motorcycle shop to try on the Aria and see how it one feels to you. My local BMW dealer was nice enough to let me take a S2 for a test ride and ended up buying the S2 from Revzilla even though they did not give you Revzilla reward bucks on Schuberth brand purchases. Hope this was helpful. Larry Apr 3, 2014

Terry M: I have always bought Arai helmets in the past and still a big fan of them but I have to say, this was also a great investment! Fit is a bit snug put on and taking off but feels great once on. Very light as well. Air flow is really good too, Rains a lot here and this thing doesn't fog up at all. Very quiet... best I've ever had. I also have the SRC-S sound system in mine, work and sounds great!! The flip down visor is easy to use with gloves on and work great. I have a outer dark visor so when that is down, the inside visor makes it a little to dark. We invested in the C3 Pro Women's helmet for my wife and she loves it. Both can talk comfortly with the SRC systems. They are pricey is the only downside.

One more thing, we went to the MotoGP in Austin Texas last year a Schuberth rep was there and answered all our questions we had and helped us since the helmets. Super cool guy and class act.

David C: Terry, thanks for rapid reply! Its good to read your comment about airflow. I have a Shoei Neotec and it can get a bit "stuffy" with lid and visor down until I get rolling.

I thought I had found a "demo" Schuberth S2 matte black on Revzilla web site for great price, but, "snooze you lose" came into play and its already gone. Should have snapped it up when I saw it. I don't have any issues with my Arai RX-Q other than I wish it had a built-in drop-down tinted visor. Apr 3, 2014
Craig G: Unfortunately, I do not have a direct answer to this question; however, I may be able to get you one step closer. I ride with the Schuberth S2 in XL. Previously, I rode with a Shoei X-11 in XL. The fit between those two helmets for me is identical. If there is a way to get a comparison of the Shoei X-11 to the Arai RX-Q, you might be able to draw a conclusion. Regarding the S2, it is lightweight, reasonably quiet, flows air and integrates seamlessly with the SRC. I use the drop down visor instead of carrying sunglasses. It's a great helmet. Before I made my purchase, I contacted RevZilla customer support, and we were able to talk through the likely fit, and they got it right. Apr 3, 2014

Douglas K: I've had a lot of different helmet and the Schuberth S2 is the one I consider to be the best. I have an intermediate oval shape head also and fit is very good for me. The noise level is low at speed and the there no lift on the front of the helmet. I've have used this helmet in 105 degree heat and was comfortable with the air flow from the vents. The drop down visor is a nice feature but I would like it to extend down about another 1/4" but it still works as is. High end price but what your head worth? Apr 3, 2014

David C: Douglas, thanks for rapid reply. Really appreciate your comments, particularly the ones re noise and airflow. I live in Cincinnati/NKY area and the summers here are typically hot and humid although we don't get into the 100's very often (but after our winter who knows how crazy this summer will be). And I agree with your position re price vs value of your head. Apr 3, 2014

pfarrell: I'm comparing this to the C3. On an R1200GS with the Adventure windscreen the C2 is MUCH smoother behind the screen than the C3....

Likewise on a Street Triple R, naked, it's a smoother helmet at speed than the C3. No difference in loudness, for me ear plugs still required on a naked bike...regardless of helmet...

Philo: It really designed to be a sport-touring helmet so it can do duty in both upright touring and sport riding. I wear it for long, not-too-technical adventure riding as well as on my sport bike set up for comfort. Sep 16, 2012

RevZilla: Yes, this helmet does favor the upright or 'touring' riding position. The faceshield used is the same as the C3 and in many ways, this is simply a non-modular C3 and said to be extremely quiet. Mar 28, 2012

James F asked: My head measures at 56cm and I have a longer, more narrow face so I'm wondering if the S2 would be a good choice for me?

Michael W: Be sure to view the video that Reveille made on the review of the S2 helmet I believe he talks about fit. I like the S 2 but it will feel more snug than you may be used to until it wears in. May 15, 2015

james k: Please check the size chart at Revzilla. If you are on the border, go to the larger size. It has been a great helmet. Quiet and well built. Enjoy, Jim May 15, 2015

A shopper asked: My head measures right at 56cm and i have a narrow/long face. I'm not sure if i fall into the intermediate/oval category. Is the S2 designed more for a wider face?

Scott H: I also have a narrower oval head. My 2nd helmet is a Arai Defiant. The Arai is more comfortable and flows air better but it's not as stable at speed as the Schuberth. S2 is snug in the forehead when I first put it on but breaks in the longer you wear it. I wear the S2 way more than the Arai. Even though it's not as comfortable. It just feels more solid and in cooler weather it's warmer. Sometimes to much air flow is a bad thing May 15, 2015

Craig G: Not a direct answer, but my XL Schuberth S2 fits very similarly to my previous XL Shoei X-Eleven. I hope this reference point might be of some use. May 15, 2015

A shopper asked: Will the Cardo System Scale Rider G9 Powerset work with this helmet Jul 15, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
JohanTakeshi: I have the scala G9 mounted on a Shoei Neotec, and the Schuberth comms system mounted in an S2 Shuberth; I think the G9 would mount on an S2, but not nicely - wouldn't recommend it.

Schuberths have the sunvisor actuator on the left side, the best place for the G9, and
the Schuberth collar is a "ring" around the base of the helmet; would make mounting difficult.

The Schuberths also have built in antenna for the system; G9 wont interface with it.

So, if you are seriously considering it, I highly recommend looking at both togeter to see if you really want to try it. My bet is, like me, you'll decide to pay the STUPID price and go with the proprietary outdated system or "wait and see if it gets updated;" it does work well though.

Nothing wrong with my Shoei/G9 setup either; the Schuberth was a gift and the helmets are comparable.

RevZilla: You will only be able to use the stick mount to use the Cardo Scala Rider G9 with the Schuberth S2 Helmet, due to its curved collar. Jul 17, 2012

A shopper asked: I read that this helmet comes in two shell sizes (just like the C3)

Can you confirm at which size the shell switches to the larger shell-size.

Schuberths tend to fit small compared to other brands - so a M on other brands would usually make you a large on Schuberths - I'd like to know if I'm going to end up on the larger shell size or not.

zenworm: Surprisingly, XS-L get the smaller shell size, with XL-XXXL getting the larger. I would have thought the L would fall on the other side.

For what it's worth, I'm a medium in every helmet I've ever tried. This holds true for the C3/S2. At first the padding was very tight, but after a few days it shaped nicely and now fits, comfy and snug.

You can change out the padding so it might be worth trying the Medium first and then getting smaller padding if necessary.
