The new SCHUBERTH SR2 supersport helmet provides a number of exceptional features including optimized aerodynamics and maximum safety combined with an extremely lightweight design. This makes it your perfect partner on the race track and on the road.
On March 20, motorcycle racer Marcel Schrötter (23) will begin his chase for championship points at the first race of the season in Losail, Qatar. Now the young man from Germany has one thing less to worry about while getting ready for the upcoming Moto2 season: his indispensable, potentially life-saving headgear will be delivered by none other than German manufacturer SCHUBERTH. “This year Marcel will be using tailor-made, individually designed SCHUBERTH SR2 helmets for all race and test events. We are glad that this young, ambitious, highly gifted racer from Germany has opted for a product from our factory for use at his Grand Prix participations. This way we are further expanding our commitment to motorcycle racing and supporting the public perception of our activities,” said Jan-Christian Becker, SCHUBERTH General Manager. “The new SCHUBERTH SR2 is the result of five years of road and race-track experience with our SR1 supersport helmet,” adds Frank Danielzik, CFO of SCHUBERTH. Courtesy of its optimized aerodynamics and aeroacoustics, maximum functionality, and highest levels of safety, the new SCHUBERTH SR2 supersport helmet is ideal for both daily use and professional motor racing. SCHUBERTH will present its newly-designed helmet at the start of the season.
The company is the only helmet manufacturer to produce its helmets in Germany. The helmets are tested and brought to perfection at SCHUBERTH’s own wind tunnel. Formula-One drivers like Nico Rosberg or Nico Hülkenberg rely on the sophisticated safety lids from Germany. Now Marcel Schrötter has joined this league of extraordinary gentlemen. The young man from Bavaria has been a part of the motorcycle world championship since 2010, climbing up to Moto2 during the 2013 season. As the second highest world championship series, Moto2 bikes are powered by 600ccm, 4-stroke engines. In Moto2, Schrötter will ride a Honda-powered Kalex chassis for the AGR Team. “It feels great to be supported by a renowned supplier like SCHUBERTH,” said Schrötter. “Current Formula-One drivers like Rosberg, Hülkenberg, Alonso, or Massa––and in the past even Michael Schumacher––rely on the high levels of quality and safety offered by every SCHUBERTH helmet. For the world championship, you need to rely 100 percent on your gear. You can’t afford to be distracted. I have been comfortable with my new helmet from day one. I love the way it handles and its aerodynamic features and low noise levels are top notch. Now I am even more looking forward to the new season.” SCHUBERTH’s endorsement of world-class rider Schrötter is the next step to expanding its activities in world championship motorcycling. Last September, Red Bull’s junior series called MotoGP Rookies Cup also started their cooperation with SCHUBERTH. From 2016, the entire grid of 24 young motorcycling talents will be equipped with SCHUBERTH products.
