Re: Scheuberth C2 Concept Helmet
Oy veh. I heard all the tales about Schuberth looking for a new US distributor when I was trying to replace the face shield on my C1 (same shield as C2).
If anyone remembers, the original Concept was met with much enthusiasm because BMW had decided not to import its modular helmets (which were made by Schuberth, I believe) due to the same product liability concerns. Now, whether the Concept was equal to the BMW System helmets is a matter of some debate.
Since the Concept came along, several other modulars hit the US market, including the Nolan, the redesigned Shoei and many others. Given Schuberth's inability to support its US customers, I doubt I'd buy another. I do like the integrated sun visor, though.
Run a Google search and contact the (former) US dealers. Maybe someone has some spare parts in a discount bin somewhere.
