Scheuberth C2 Concept Helmet

I lost one of the fasteners that attaches the face shield to the helmet. Called Fairchild Sports and they no longer are the USA distributer. Any ideas on who to contact to order a replacement part?

Re: Scheuberth C2 Concept Helmet

I've heard that BMW of Santa Cruz is working on becoming the US distributor for Schuberth. You might contact them directly. If not, then I think you have to find a Canadian, British, or German Schuberth dealer and do an international order.

Sorry to bear bad news. I picked up a new visor recently and was told by my dealer that Schuberth did not want to put up with our ridicilous liability exposure and would no longer make helmets or parts available in the United States. I bought both of the visors they had in stock. If Santa Cruz finds a way around this or it is simply untrue, I'd love to know that as would thousands of others who love their Shcuberth Concept 2 helmets. Craze country. You can import any cheap piece of crap but one of the safest helmts out there goes away due to our legal system. Moot

Email Schuberth directly in Germany, describe your problem & attach pics if necessary.

I recently had problems with my left temple piece on my S1. I searched the web and saw Santa Cruz BMW was becoming a distributor so I called them. Apparently, negotiations have broken down, so as of right now they only carry face-shields. The person I spoke to in Parts suggested that I contact Schuberth directly.

It took a few days, but they did respond and are replacing the part free and shipping via UPS. I originally emailed them April 30, and they sent notification of shipping on May 6. And, as I was typing this the doorbell rang - UPS just delivered the part!

12 days including shipping from Germany - pretty amazing customer service I'd say!! They now have me as a customer for life!

Re: Scheuberth C2 Concept Helmet

Mike,

I have a spare schuberth that I trashed when I installed and un-installed mike and
speakers. If you can somehow attach a picture of what you need, I will see if I have the piece you need, and send to you for....FREE

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.

Re: Scheuberth C2 Concept Helmet

I just ordered a couple of C1/C2 visors from Santa Cruz BMW online. Figured I'd better have a spare.

Re: Scheuberth C2 Concept Helmet

There is a UK company (www.helmetcity.co.uk) that carry spares for Schuberth. The side pods to attach the visor are GBP 10.00 per pair. Email address is [email protected] and if they will not ship to the US let me know and we can work something out.

Re: Scheuberth C2 Concept Helmet

I just returned from a 1800 mile trip to the Grand Canyon. On the first day, I lost one of the attachment wheels. I was able to hold the shield on until I could get stopped and make a "200 mph tape" repair. The problem with that repair was the shield was now fixed and could not be raised or lowered. That evening when we stopped, I bought a bottle of rubbing alcohol to clean the parts thoroughly and some lengths of industrial strength adhesive lock and loop (Velcro). I cut circles of both sides of the lock and loop that were the same size as the "turntable" that is attached to the helmet and rotates to raise the shield. I adhered one side of the tape to the turntable and the other to the shield. With this repair the shield rotates up and down as intended. It lasted the remainder of the trip including through rain, snow and high winds and looks like it would last forever. I did, this morning, however, order two sets of repair kits that include the attachment wheels from [B]Derby Cycles. http://www.derbycycles.com/ I have an order confirmation stating they have been shipped by fed ex. I now, however, have a new touring tip. I will always carry rubbing alcohol to clean parts so the adhesive will stick for the industrial strength lock and loop tape I will also carry. It worked much better for this repair than did the duct tape.
