SCHUBERTH SR2 wins sport helmet test

The German motorcycle magazine MOTORRAD and TÜV Rheinland, German provider of certifications, declare the brand new SCHUBERTH helmet SR2 the test winner after putting 14 helmets from the top manufacturers thoroughly through their paces.

SCHUBERTH is thought of as the trailblazer of flip-up helmets, which is why the company mainly enjoys an excellent reputation among touring riders all over the world with the multiple test winner C3 Pro. However, especially in recent times, the German manufacturer has proven to have a potential test winner on offer for every motorcyclist with exciting new products like the adventure helmet E1 and the supersport helmet SR2. And the production run of the SCHUBERTH SR2 had hardly begun when the brand new supersport helmet was already called up to play hardball against all the protagonists of its segment in a thorough group test, carried out by MOTORRAD magazine.

The current, 9-2016 issue of MOTORRAD will definitely receive a place of honour in the Magdeburg plant, where each and every one of SCHUBERTH’s helmets is developed and manufactured. The magazine’s latest issue not only reveals that the readers of the magazine have elected SCHUBERTH as “Best Brand” in the helmet category for the eleventh time in a row. In addition, the SCHUBERTH SR2 has won what surely will turn out to have been the most involved helmet group test of the year. The SR2 was awarded the maximum score for its outstanding aerodynamics while only missing the top scores in the acoustics, ventilation, weight and impact absorption criteria by a single point each. SCHUBERTH’s latest helmet came in just a mere three points below what is considered the ideal score of 1000 points in the HIC (head injury criterion).

Overall, the magazine’s editorial board awarded the SR2 a rating of “very good” and declared it the test winner with 89 out of a possible 100 points. Jan-Christian Becker, CEO of the SCHUBERTH group, is thrilled with this result: “Every test win makes us happy, of course. But it is really a very special distinction when one of our helmets is declared the winner by Europe’s biggest motorcycle magazine as well as such a renowned and impartial testing institute as TÜV Rheinland. And the best thing is, all the sport riders out there deciding to buy an SR2 are confirmed they make a great choice“.
