I have a Schuberth C2. Heaviest damn helmet ever. But really nice features, very quiet.

Since I've bought my Shark full-face, I never wear the Schuberth.

Schuberth is not currently imported to the US - the importer/distributor was purchased by Fairchild http://www.fairchild.com/ If you've found an official importer of units with real DOT stickers, please share.

That being said, in June I did buy a new off the shelf C2, at a tremendous discount. The noise is good, the view is awesome, the weight is also amazing -- it's over four pounds!

Four pounds may not sound like a lot when it comes to bacon or chocolate, but when you're trying to keep four pounds plus that 20 pounds of fat stored behind your eyeballs upright and forward, you start to worry about looking like Henry Rollins - and not in that flattering, he's a fit 45 y.o. smart guy that rocks really hard way either.

It is my first flip up and second street helmet evar!

Repair parts in the US are minimal at best, so plan on using your language skillz or the eBay if you need a new visor or other part.

I have a Schubert C2 as well and I like it very much.
I use it on my commute and on long runs.
When I am touring country roads I have an open FM helmet.

Even though the Schubert is pretty heavy I realy like the fact that it is, at this moment the most silent flip up helmet on the market here in Holland.
I have a bluetooth headset in it and I can make a phonecall at 120 kph without any problems.

we have a couple of shuberth helmets left in stock at work (and we're close by in B'ham), a power blue XL S1 ($793) and a Black C2 Large ($499). they have nice features, but the S1's weren't great sellers because of the price except with the BMW crowd. our parts guys can ship if you're interested in any of those and (don't mention i said this), but you can always ask for a discount too.


our biggest sellers are arai, shoei, and now scorpion which is probably our biggest seller. that EXO-1000 rocks. i can't wait to get one.

I considered the S1 but the guy in the bike shop said he didn't have much faith in the strength of the composite chin bar. When he removed it it did feel like it could be easily broken by hand but I suppose it would be much stronger in situ. I went for an arai FF in the end.
