Let´s ride! The international Ride Day on 3rd May means for the first time and for all the passionate women bikers in Germany: Driving on the Motorbike and showing, what we have. The Online-Magazine Fembike has set itself the goal to bring the Action day , which was establised in Canada 7 years ago, to Germany. Active women bikers, Clubs and Associations organize on this day special trips and activities for female riders. The aim is to show „how diverse the world of women bikers is“ describes the organisor Frauke Tietz. „That reinforces the solidarity amoung each other and should encourage at the same time other women to get enthusiastic about this wonderful hobby.“

We found this idea so fantastic, so that we absolutely wanted to support this action with great prices. All the participants, who have registered at fembike.de/female-ride-day-2014 will take automatically part in a draw. In total 3 C3 Pro Women will be drawed such as 10 Schuberth Softshell-jackets und 20 polo shirts.

After the trips the participants will be able to upload some pictures of their experiences and impressions. A lottery with high prices is a further peak of this action. Moreover, through the webside donations will be raised for the „Freiburger Verein AMICA e.V.“, which will be donated to women and girls in war areas.

The Female Ride Day has been founded in 2007 by The Canadian Vicky Gray.
She wanted to prove to the public: We, women ride motorcycle and there are many of us. More women should be encouraged to obtain their driving licence and to get a motorcycle – no matter which brand, which type and whether Sportler, Cruiser, Tourer or also Scooter. Each two motorized wheels are welcome. In the meantime the campaign is widespread throughout the world. In Israel and Iceland, in Russia and South Africa, everywhere around the globe the women bikers follow the Slogan: Just Ride!

We wish all the participants a great trip!

Mallorca Shooting – Making of

Our Year’s Spring Campaign was produced in December in Mallorca. Best sunny weather and in part spring like temperatures cared for a stunning scenery. Our photographer also created a short Making-of-Video, which we would like to share with you.

This year, the results of the annual survey among the readers of Europe’s largest trade magazine MOTORRAD to determine the best brands in the motorcycle sector once again provide a clear picture. 45,707 readers took part in the decision-making and voted Schuberth “Best Brand” in the helmet category with a clear 8.2% lead over the second-placed brand. We are particularly proud of the fact that we have obtained the coveted seal of quality every year since its introduction in 2006. At the official award ceremony on 17.03.2014 in Stuttgart, we were represented by Managing Director Jan-Christian Becker, Head of Sales & Marketing Nicole Prell as well as Marketing Manager Marc Lenze to accept the certificate in festive surroundings.

The happy winners from the different product segments receive their certificates.

We would like to thank all those who took part and in particular our faithful customers, without whom we would not have been able to achieve this accolade.

The motorcycle magazine “Motorrad News”, together with the experts from TÜV Rheinland tested a total of 12 helmets from different manufacturers in a noxious substances test (Issue 8 and 9/2013). Essentially, there was an emissions test, in which it was determined whether and to what extent noxious vapours were inhaled when wearing the helmet, and a noxious substances test, in which the contents of the different materials were determined. Five of the twelve helmets tested did not pass the emissions test.

Schuberth was one of the few manufacturers achieving the best marks:

“Clean thing: With a total of 185 µg/m³ volatile organic compounds, the test results of the Magdeburg caps are considerably below the limit of 500 µm/m³. In the emissions test, none of the substances fell into the hazardous classification; in the sniff test, the specialists recorded the Grade 1, therefore odourless.”

“Very good” for Schuberth C3 Pro

“Very good” for Schuberth C3 Pro
The tester of the MOTORRAD magazine was driven over 3000 km wearing the new C3 Pro (Edition 18/2013). But best of all read here for yourself his good experience:

(start quote)

Tried Schuberth C3 Pro: THAT’S BETTER

A small add-on to the name makes all the difference:
The “Pro” in the name of the model is the telltale sign that a very good flip-up helmet has become even better.

The conclusion in the MOTORRAD flip-up helmet test 8/2012: “The C3 is still an excellent flip-up helmet, but it is no longer the gold standard for flip-up helmets. It is slowly beginning to show its age.”
The responsible persons of the Magdeburg helmet manufacturer Schuberth must have seen that in a similar way, as they developed the unofficial successor based on the C3, the C3 Pro. What sounds like a small model improvement, most other manufacturers would call a completely new construction. Not without good reason, as the inner shell of the helmet (for shock absorption), ventilation aerodynamics and acoustics have been improved with a large number of innovations.
And these are not only good in theory; they also can be recognised in practice.
The C3 Pro had the opportunity to demonstrate what it was capable of during a 3000 km tour straight through Germany (high proportion of motorway driving) plus a ride through the Alps: It sits much calmer, allows in less noise, is much better ventilated and is even a bit more comfortable.
From 595 Euro, and thereby nearly 100 Euro more expensive than the C3 that is still available, but it is noticeably better.

MOTORRAD verdict: Very Good

(end quote)

The only thing we can still add was that naturally the helmet shell design was reworked and optimised. This ultimately also accounted for its excellent aerodynamic properties even at high speeds. Furthermore, the C3 Pro has integrated antennas for improved Bluetooth and radio reception.
