The Samshield Shadowmatt Helmet is made for style and comfort, but most importantly for safety.
The Lizard top is available in 4 colours – Black, Brown & Blue – which all have a varnished finish, and Taupe – an unvarnished leather which provides a silky touch and a matt appearance.
Available as standard with a Black Chrome trim & blazon. Pictured with the Lizard Taupe top.
Samshield helmets conform to ASTM, VG1 and SEI safety standards, making these fully compliant for UK competition.
MATERIALS FOR OPTIMAL SAFETY – The outer shell of the Shadowmatt helmet is made from polycarbonate and painted with an anti-scratch, matte paint.
The inner shell is made from polystyrene with variable density, which provides effective dissipation of the energy produced upon impact.
STABILITY – The internal comfort foam hat lining ensures a consistent thickness inside the helmet. The use of a liner with a semi-rigid chin strap reduces the risk of the helmet tipping in the case of violent movement.
A thorough anthropomorphic study led to the design of the inner liner, creating unmatched comfort. The internal comfort foam lining is removable, so can be washed at your convenience in order to maintain a clean helmet. This system also makes it possible to follow the growth of a young rider.
POWERFUL INTERNAL AIRFLOW – Equipped with an air inlet at the front, under the blazon, the Samshield helmet provides exceptional ventilation. Fresh air is channelled from the front vent to the back vents in the helmet, minimising uncomfortable sweating. This concept generates a strong internal airflow avoiding the need for visible and unsightly air inlets: the elegance of the helmet is retained without compromising technicality and comfort.
Samshield helmets are available with the dressage chin strap
option: this option allows women to wear their hair in a bun without being constrained by the harness of the helmet. This chin strap is cut away by 2.5 cm in order to allow more room for the hair bun.
