Schuberth

Head protection Made in Germany.

SCHUBERTH represents this for more than 70 years. We have already been producing protective helmets of different varieties since the 1940s. From 1954 onwards, motor cyclists were able to wear a helmet of the SCHUBERTH brand. This was the beginning of a success story which continues today. Countless motor bike helmets were produced and sold since the foundation of the company. And countless satisfied customers swear by their “SCHUBERTH”.

Today, SCHUBERTH develops and produces in Magdeburg on the Elbe.
The portfolio: helmets for worker protection, police, fire brigade, Formula 1 sports and motor cycling. Renowned Formula 1 pilots rely on SCHUBERTH helmets as much as numerous life savers and protectors from professional areas.
We are proud of that.

The portfolio protection at work, police, fire services, Formula 1, military and motor bike helmets. 

Excellent performance with an excellent team

More than 400 people are employed in the Magdeburg factory. Our engineers constantly come up with new solutions and research in our in-house wind tunnel. The helmets are tested on the climate rig or in the acoustics laboratory, and are perfected so that your helmet is perfect in every detail.

Every motor bike helmet is produced with manual labour - from the first down to the last step.

Regional with international focus

SCHUBERTH helmets today are exported to 55 different countries. Since 2010, North America is delivered by its own subsidiary company in the US. Aside from the US there are subsidiaries in Italy and Thailand.  We continue to conquer new markets and expand the international presence. In the future, we would like to further increase our market share and are aligning the company accordingly.

Experience with strong partners

Strong brand ambassadors such as Nico Hülkenberg or Felipe Massa and high quality standards paired with a strong product “Made in Germany” are our key to further success. The passion of our employees, the high demands of our customers and our love for details inspire us afresh every day to give our best for you - our customer!
