PS motorcycle magazine of Germany and TÜV Rhineland have collaborated on a group test of eleven current supersport helmets. Scoring top marks in nearly all criteria, the brand new SCHUBERTH SR2 was nominated the unequivocal winner of this elaborate test.
ALISO VIEJO, CA – May 23, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – It has almost become a tradition that helmet tests end with test wins of and recommendations for SCHUBERTH helmets. But a brand new SCHUBERTH helmet like the SR2 winning two group tests in short succession immediately after its market launch is a first even for the helmet manufacturer from Magdeburg, Germany. After defeating the established competition in the recent test by Europe’s largest motorcycle magazine MOTORRAD, the SR2 now has won the test carried out by PS, the magazine for “sporting, fast motorcycling” – and by an even greater margin.
The current PS issue 6-2016 chronicles how the SR 2 defined the new benchmark in nearly every respect. The SCHUBERTH supersport helmet received the maximum score for its complete lack of fogging, missing the maximum impact absorption and noise ratings only by a single point. The SR2’s aerodynamics, ventilation, field of vision, weight, fit/wearing characteristics and equipment/ craftsmanship also received very high marks. Overall, it was ranked “very good” by the PS editors after comprehensive laboratory and race track testing, to win the test with a total score of 130 out of 150 possible points.
Jan-Christian Becker, CEO of the SCHUBERTH group, is very happy with the second top test result in a row: “These victories confirm that you can always expect a test win from SCHUBERTH. And that does not just go for our latest products like the SR2 and the adventure helmet E1. SCHUBERTH has a potential test winner for every type of motorcyclist.”
