Schuberth S2 Sport Tech Helmet
A great and stylish helmet
This is my second Schuberth helmet but the first full face. I had the modular C3 Pro before. Style and function are great. The flip down visor is a must. Not the most comfortable chin strap but all the other features work for me. Quite light weight.

Fit, weight and vision are all good.
I like the majority of features of this helmet. However,it does not live up to it's " ultra Quiet " claim.I am still searching for a helmet that does a better job blocking out wind noise!

Good helmet, not perfect.
Shuberth's sizing is different than the other helmet's I've had so had to go up a size from my normal large to XL. The graphics, pads, ratchet strap and visor are top notch. Helmet noise and air flow depends on whether the top vent is in smooth or turbulent air but about average. The only negative thing was one of the face shield release levers popped out of the helmet the first time I removed the shield. Unsure if it was my fault or just wasn't installed correctly at the factory. Revzilla customer service sent a replacement lever that I installed. I would recommend this helmet, especially at the sale price.

Nice and quiet
Coming from a more budget oriented helmet, the difference in wind noise is amazing. I typically had to wear earplugs and would still get headaches and ear pain after an hour or so with my old helmet. The S2 allows me to ride plug-free and not be deafened with wind noise. The tight neckroll is extremely tight to keep the wind out but it could be problematic in an emergency. I cant see paramedics trying to removing this helmet without a saw if they suspect any type of neck injury.
The one disappointment I've had is the way the bottom air deflector is attached. It uses small plastic zip-tie type fasteners that can break loose and get lost. Several times when stretching the neckroll open to remove the helmet I've had a fastener pull apart and fall to the ground in pieces. Its not fun searching the parking lot on your hands and knees for parts of your new helmet. I contacted Schuberth about the problem and they say to have a local dealer ship the helmet to them for inspection.

The S2 is a terrific helmet, it saved my life. I was driving fast and I was hit by a car, so my head crash against the sidewalk and I am still alive thanks to Schuberth S2. Thanks also to RevZilla for the excellent service, as always the item arrived on time and well packed

Quality helmet, fantastic price
I've always liked the Schuberth helmets but wasn't ready to spend $800 on one. This helmet on sale is an excellent deal. The quality blows comparably priced helmets out of the water. Almost want to put the helmet on display.
The aerodynamics of the helmet are very impressive. I came from a Shoei Qwest and was used to having to brace my neck when turning my head at speed so that my head didn't get ripped around by the wind. The S2 turns effortlessly which makes checking for traffic when changing lanes much nicer at higher speeds.
Very pleased with the helmet overall.

Excellent helmet, great features
Comfortable and lightweight! Pay attention to Revzilla video's regarding the shape of your head, their evaluation of fitment is correct. The level of engineering is self evident after wearing for a few hours and even though I always ride with ear plugs, it's by far the quietest helmet that I've owned. Highly recommend!

excellent quality and design
this is my second Schuberth helmet. i bought an R1 years ago based on reviews on the helmet being one of the best for low noise levels and solid design. it was indeed very quiet. but also, i thought it was a great high quality product. unfortunately i had a high speed, low side crash that sent me tumbling for a good 50 feet. the R1 absorbed all the impacts apparently because i did not feel any pain in my head. there was a slight impact dent near one of the temples, some scuffs and the visor was half off (or half on) but other than that, no long cracks and my head is just fine. i ended up with 5 fractured ribs though.
this S2 fits really well and feels very hi-tech for some reason. i almost like i got a new cockpit or interior and it seems to be more refined than the R1. it's a bit noisier but just by a little. it's no wonder the retail price is $600+. i've been through 3 Arai Profile's after the R1 because i couldn't afford Schuberth's but when revzilla put them on sale i didn't hesitate. once i put it on it reminded me how much i loved the R1's quality. i don't think you can get much better all around. i'm guessing that when you're at this price range in any helmet, it's all just a matter of how a given helmet fits on the persons head.
