Schu­berth’s flip-front

Old Bike Australasia - - GOOD GEAR -

Ger­man com­pany Schu­berth has been in the hel­met busi­ness for 90 years, pro­duc­ing not just mo­tor­cy­cle hel­mets, but pro­tec­tive head­gear for fire­fight­ers and trades work­ers to For­mula 1 driv­ers. Schu­berth con­trols the en­tire hel­met man­u­fac­tur­ing process from de­sign, re­search and de­vel­op­ment through pro­duc­tion at their state-of-the-art fa­cil­ity in the Alpine town of Magde­burg, Ger­many. The hel­mets are still fin­ished by hand and are guar­an­teed for 5 years. The Schu­berth C4 re­de­fines the flip-up hel­met both for tour­ing and sports rid­ers. Fea­tures in­clude op­ti­mum blue­tooth® and ra­dio re­cep­tion, in­te­grated an­tenna, pre-in­stalled speak­ers and mi­cro­phone, plug & play for new com­mu­ni­ca­tion sys­tem SC1. Con­struc­tion ma­te­rial is fiber­glass, with an ex­tra-large, anti-fog, wide field lens for a wide field of vi­sion. A drop-down sun vi­sor is in­te­grated into the de­sign, with an all-up weight of just 1.66kg. Sizes are XS-XXXL. The C4 has a RRP of $999 for solid colours and $1100 for graph­ics.

Schu­berth hel­mets are now avail­able for the first time in Aus­tralia from Pro­cy­cles Stores at Hornsby and St Peters, NSW.
