Out of Deutschland we have word of the appearance of an all-new full-featured full-face lid, the R2. Even if you don’t need one right now, you might wind up with one anyway, as Schuberth is giving away five of the new helmets, as well as five “dream motorcycle tours.”


Pure and simple, contemporary, multi-functional – SCHUBERTH has reinvented the classic full-face helmet with the R2. The R2 is suitable for every head and every bike. The launch of the helmet is being accompanied by the R2ME2 on-line competition, in which there are five dream motorcycle tours to be won.
Whether you ride a naked bike, roadster or sports tourer, the new SCHUBERTH R2 is the perfect helmet for the motorcycle community: classic full-face helmet sporting a modern design and featuring the latest SCHUBERTH technology. A helmet that offers maximum safety and style, is suitable for any motorcycle and riding style and is so light and comfortable, you hardly notice you’re wearing it. Something else that’s not immediately apparent, but is good to know: the R2 is pre-equipped for Bluetooth and radio communication as standard.
It features an integral antenna, two pre-installed loudspeakers, a boomless mic and slot for the optional SC1 communication system developed in collaboration with SENA. “Plug and Play” in the true sense of the word.
The new full-face helmet not only looks cool, it was developed in SCHUBERTH’s Air and Acoustics Lab. This predestines it for use where perfect aerodynamics play an even more important role than on other machines. Another feature of the R2 is its large factory-fitted anti-fog visor. Its upper edge remains outside the field of vision even when adopting a tucked riding position. The R2 is available now in the sizes XS (53) to XXL (63) – in the classic solid colours black, white and anthracite for $479 and the attractive NEMESIS, ENFORCER and RENEGADE graphics for $569. Of course with our Five-year no-nonsense guarantee.
SCHUBERTH is accompanying the launch with the R2ME2 Challenge in which there are five dream motorcycle tours and five SCHUBERTH R2 helmets to be won. The on-line competition is running to end-July 2017. More information can be found at R2ME2.SCHUBERTH.COM.
