Five years of experience with the legendary SR1 and three decades of extensive wind tunnel research have given SCHUBERTH a developmental edge which now benefits the new SR2 helmet. No matter whether on the race track or on the road, the SR2 gives supersports riders all they need for a more focused, more relaxed riding experience – which also means a safer one.
On the EICMA 2015 in Milan, Italy, SCHUBERTH caused a big surprise with its brand new SR2. Now, the new supersports helmet has arrived at the retailers, just in time for the start of the motorcycle season – a helmet whose optimised aerodynamics ensure the head will always remain stable in the wind and whose visor provides clarity in any situation. The helmet’s ideal shape with a relatively wide front and narrower rear not only serves to minimise aerodynamic drag and with it, the strain on the neck musculature, but has also been aerodynamically stabilised with the help of two side spoilers and the further developed D-Force 2 spoiler on the rear. This way, the SR2 lies smoothly in the wind in a directionally stable manner, without lift or any tendency to weave. The visor of the SCHUBERTH SR2 is a brand new development, an optical class 1 2D racing visor completely free from distortion. Curved in one spatial plane only, it is ideally suited to fitting tear-offs, and provides a clear view in racing situations thanks to a large anti-fog screen.
This means SCHUBERTH has managed to increase the outstanding supersports performance of the SR1 even further. The SR2 is now available in six sizes from XS through XXL. In Matt Black and Glossy White, dealers sell it for 669 Euros (RRP), for 749 Euros it is available with the great-looking graphics ‘Formula’ (in grey, blue and red), ‘Pilot’ (in grey and blue) or ‘Lightning’ (in yellow and red).
In the Moto2 World Championship rounds staged in 2016, professional racers Marcel Schrötter and Jesko Raffin are using SCHUBERTH SR2 helmets. The racing helmets of the riders in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup this year are also SCHUBERTH SR2 helmets.
