Schuberth helmets have been tantalizingly out of reach for Australian bikers until the grovelment changed their minds and began to recognise the already high international standards set for stack hat testing and certification.
Here's what Schuberth reckon.
The SCHUBERTH C4 redefines the flip-up helmet and represents the new bench-mark for touring and sports riders with the highest demands.
High-tech where safety is concerned:
The unique method for manufacturing shells used by SCHUBERTH makes for low weight combined with optimum stability. Direct Fiber Processing (DFP) is an innovation developed by SCHUBERTH.
It involves an endless glass fibre being cut into pieces by a robot and being blown into a mould. This preform is baked under high pressure in a heatable mould with the addition of a precisely defined quantity of resin to produce an exceptionally solid shell.
The multi-part construction of the inner lining allows for outstanding force absorption, thereby enhancing safety.
To ensure a cool head: THE INNER LINING
The ShinyTex® inner lining is designed to ensure a secure and comfortable fit. The fabrics are fast-drying, washable and antibacterial. The seamless head pad guarantees outstanding wearing comfort. Good air circulation through multi-channel ventilation provides additional cooling for the wearer. Of course, the inner lining is Öko-Tex 100 certified, removable and washable.
The ventilation provides even more air for breathing:
A complex multi-channel ventilation system on the inside of the shell ensures a comfortable air flow rate. Air intakes in the forehead and chin areas ensure that you will keep a cool head.
The motor cycle helmet is in accordance with the testing standard ECE R 22.05 and can therefore be used throughout Europe.
The E1 is available in sizes from XS to 3XL. This conforms to head circumferences from 52 to 65 centimetres.
For drivers with a clear view: the visor
All SCHUBERTH visors are visors of the optical class 1. They warrant an undistorted view and are anti-scratch treated. Turbulators for noise reduction on the visor edge. The visor mechanics allow a quick exchange completely without tools. Of course the C4 features an anti-fog lens.
Communicating, talking on the phone, using the satnav, listening to music – communication now also becomes very simple on the motorbike. Extremely easy installation and invisible technology: the communication unit is slotted into the edge of the helmet and is completely hidden. Microphone and speakers are preinstalled in the helmet.
The C4 is the best flip-up helmet of 2017!
MOTORRAD motorcycling magazine tested a total of twelve current flip-up helmets and the C4 achieved 88 points out of a possible 100. In particular, the editors have judged "(...) provides a brilliant fit, comfortable lining, perfect ventilation, very low noise level, visors with an enormous field of vision, opulent instrumentation. (...)" are very convincing. Verdict: “Very good”
Strapz HQ will keep white in stock as best we can, other colours will be ordered in. Stock represents what I'm told is in Oz HQ store and on my shelves .

Hi Andy, Just wanted to let you know that I am very happy with the C4 helmet. I have had several helmets over the years but nothing compares to the C4. The peripheral visibility is outstanding and road noise is the quietest I have experienced. I should also mention the SC1 Coms unit. This too is a very good unit with excellent sound quality and I love the fact that the mic is built into the helmet so no mic arm to get in the way. Thank you for assisting me in my purchase and may I say it was a pleasure to experience your level of customer service and satisfaction, so often hard to find in today's world. Many thanks Geoff
great helmet, best i've owned recommend to anyone
Hi Andy, I see you now have the Schuberth C4 helmets on your site. It is good to see they are now available in Australia! I purchased a Schuberth C4 in Munich about 9 months ago. It is by far the quietest (wind noise), best fitting and most comfortable helmet I have owned. (I have owned many in 30 odd years or riding). I have found the ventilation to be good even on the hottest days and no issues with fogging in winter. I also have the SC1 advanced communications system and the RC4 remote which makes it easy to use the FM radio, ipod, and sat nav systems with out reaching for buttons on the helmet. I am happy to recommend the Schuberth C4 Helmet. I am also happy to recommend Andy Strapz, good products, great service and genuinely good people. Note my previous helmet was an Arai Corsair V XL. I purchased the Schuberth C4 XXl. Regards, Pete
