Today we received a kindly mail from our newest U.S. driver Townsend Bell who will start at the world famous Indy 500 with a Schuberth carbon helmet. Townsend is a specialist in oval racing and has lots of experiences as driver in the former Champ Car World Series and Indy Car series. Please read directly from Townsend first impressions about his first test with a Schuberth.
“Sven and Marcel
Today was my first chance to test with the helmet at Indy.
I want to let you know that you have the finest helmet available on the market. A few pleasant surprises:
- The quality of the visor seal and locking system is terrific. At 230 mph this is really important. Every time I lock the visor leaving the pits I feel like I’m shutting the door on a mercedes s class. A very reasuring thud!
- the helmet is much quieter at top speed which makes the drive more enjoyable and noticably improves voice quality with the pits in both directions.
- with the sizing adjustment, it’s also very comfortable. Thanks Sven!!
- tearoffs posts are nicely designed and can accomodate a thick stack while achieving a strong tension
Overall a great first experience. And of course the best part is your strong focus on safety.
Thanks for supporting us.
And please follow qualifying and race over the next several days at IndyCar.com.
Very best regards
This is his new helmet:
