Verified Customer Reviews for Schuberth E2
A few hundred miles into using this helmet now and I'm happy. Wind noise hasn't been an issue at all, just as quiet as my neotec or hornet lids. The peak does move a little at high speed but it's a one off move up at speed and a move down when slowing. It's doesn't flip about willy nilly and it's five millimetres at most. Not an issue for me. Visor optics are excellent.
The fit was a little tight but the custom pad kit resolved that. Fitting the comms took less than two minutes.
All in all it's a good lid and SBS service was 5* as always.
I bought this as I fancied a helmet with a peak for those low sun days.
The helmet itself is beautifully made, the peak is adjustable, the fit is nice the pin lock works and it's fairly quiet. My only negative points are that it feels a bit front heavy (compared to other modular lids I've used) and the fabric that's in contact with my forehead feels a bit scratchy. That said it's a great helmet and I'm glad I bought it.
Really good fit and view with the added bonus of built in comms sc2 haven't tried that bit yet saves the messing around adding the unit in your helmet. Really good field of vision and being able to add or remove interior padding is good too
Top of the range helmet that fits like a glove (Not that I wear gloves on my head!) and inspires confidence in protecting my bonce. However, the peak moves. A lot. With the helmet on a flat surface and applying very gentle finger pressure, the end of the peak moves up & down about 15 to 20mm. It is impossible to get additional torque/grip to hold any firmer in position. I returned it Schuberth via SBS for inspection who just returned it to me without any feedback which I take to mean that they think it is fine. But it isn't. I worry it's going to fly off in high winds, plus the peak can rattle a bit in crosswinds. It's a lot of cash to protect your bonce, and whilst the comfort and quality of everything other than the peak is top notch, I d advise others to be slightly beware of the flappy peak.
Own several helmets including a C5. This is better than the C5. For me looks better and has better vents. It is more noisy than the C5 but that is to be expected. Cant see any reason to buy a C5 when this converts to essentially a C5 In seconds. The peak adjusts in 3 positions, at its highest you cant see the peak. I ride a Tiger 1200 explorer rally 2022 with a summer screen fitted. The price dropped the following week but Superbikeshop refunded the difference, great service.
I chose to buy the Schuberth E2 because of it's noise rating and the positive reviews it has received since it's release.
Straight out of the box, the quality could be seen and felt. The comfort and noise reduction during use was very obvious straight away.
I got a small amount of peak vibration at motorway speeds, but no more than my previous helmet. This is not an issue with the helmet though, it has more to do with the design of the screen on my motorcycle.
However, Shuberth has designed the peak to be removed with effortless ease, which I can put away in my top case if i feel the need to do so!
During the time of purchasing my new Schuberth E2, SPORTSBIKESHOP.CO.UK had the most competitive price in the UK market.
Top marks for Shuberth and top marks for SportsBikeShop.co.uk
Great helmet. I find it comfy and the ventilation is great, The peak sits in a good position.
Local shop didn't have any in stock, i knew my size so went onto Sportsbikeshop and had the lid in 2 days. Really pleased.
Now owning both C5 and new E2
I can say there is a difference, there is more noise from the E2 which is obviously the peak regardless of wind tunnel testing. It's not as noisy as my tour x4 if you want the quiet life and don't need that enduro look go for the C5.
All round vision is good interior is quality But the annoying thing on both helmets for me is the intercom microphone is so close to the chin and flip mechanism it traps upon shutting the flip lid
And once the microphone fell out and landed in the road.
Maybe it's a personal issue.
Great quality helmet. Adjustable peak works well. Function of visor and flip is good. Ventilation is best I've ever had. Grey colour looks nice. Price matched by SportsbikesShop with rapid delivery.
The best upgrade I think Schuberth have done this E2 ticks all the boxes of a great helmet, good airflow, great vision, absolutely no wind buffering. And less noise with the integration of comms accessories
Just purchased the two very quiet, very comfortable much improved from my old helmet. If you're thinking of getting one then do as it has made my riding more comfortable
4th Schuberth helmet, as usual super quiet, snug fitting and excellent build quality.
Worth noting my 28 month old C4 internal drop down sun visor mechinism broke and Sportbikeshop replied with DPD pick up label and repaired and returned in a week, all free of charge making after sales service second to none
I've replaced my E1 with this, it's got a wider view, very comfortable.
I've only used it a few times so far, not sure if the claim that it's quiter than the E1 is true, ovarall I'm very pleased with it.
Replaced my E1
Quality seems good not as comfortable as E1 but hopefully after a few more hours that'll come I would rather it came not set up for schuberth intercom as first thing I done was remove it.
Happy so far the peak is an improvement over E1
I ride a Tenere World Raid, I take it off-tarmac a lot, as well as road use. This helmet is perfect for all these activities. The comfort, permitted noise-level, quality and reliability are second to none with Schuberth and this helmet in my opinion. Great that Schuberth addressed the demand to make a C5 for us dirt fans.
Had the E1 for 4 years thought I would try a different brand, now just purchased the new E2! Perfection is all I need to say, glad to be back with a SCHUBERTH E, never going away again!
Have never owned an SCHUBERTH helmet before, well that's been my loss. The fitting of it is second to none, like it has been custom made for me. Very light weight for a flip up once the helmet was on. I noticed it had an excellent field of vision. The internal sun visor drops completely down so definitely no need for the tinted visor. Also has great sound proofing quality about it. About the headset that fits this helmet, the SC2 outstanding bit of kit absolutely amazing clarity so easy to set up and the phone app for the SC2 is just simply amazing in my opinion. All in all it's a pleasure just to wear it cheers

Schuberth E2 - Explorer OrangeAdjustable Peak
The Peak of the E2 has been developed in the Schuberth wind tunnel to minimize buffeting and vibrations. The E2 offers multiple configurations to the customers, indeed the peak is designed not only to be easily adjustable on 3 positions, but also to be removed easily.
It is always the little details that make the difference between a common helmet and a Schuberth. Introduced on the E1 peak, the memory function feature is obviously also included on the E2 visor and peak. With this function, whatever exact position is selected with the chin bar closed, will be maintained after opening, and closing the chin bar.
Chinbar Air Intake
To maintain comfort when travelling long distances off-road or on-road, ventilation and temperature control are key. The Schuberth E2 features a double chin air intake. The top vent prevents visor fogging while riding in cold conditions, while the lower vent ensures an additional airflow when riding in extreme warm conditions. Dust, mud, and insects are part of off-road adventures. To prevent those from entering the helmet, the chin vent features a washable and changeable filter.
Top Ventilation System
The E2 puts ventilation at another level. It features a two position adjustable top vent as well as a new enlarged spoiler including an air extractor to ensure an excellent airflow when riding in the most challenging conditions.
Schuberth Individual Program
The inner linings of the Schuberth E2 set a new benchmark in terms of comfort. The standard head pad has been developed to offer uncompromised comfort to all customers, but those with "extreme head shapes" are usually forced to compromise with fit and sizes. For Schuberth, compromise is not an option, so the E2 is also part of the Schuberth Individual Program, which offers the possibility to customize the internal padding with more thickness options for sides, back and cheek pads. (Head Pad customization available for sizes M/L/XL).
At Schuberth safety is at the heart of every product. The E2 features the P/J double homologation and meets the ECE-R 22.06 standards. The shell of the E2 is made of Fibreglass with Schuberth's patented Direct Fibre Processing Technology and reinforced with Carbon fibre for improved shock absorption and lighter weight.
Just like the whole Schuberth collection, the E2 benefits of the Anti-Roll-Off-System connected with a chin strap in a new advanced position for improved comfort on the throat area.
The most advanced technology just for your Schuberth E2. Extremely easy to install, to configure and use, SC2 sets a new standard for motorcycle communication. The HD speakers and three antennas for FM Radio, Bluetooth Intercom and Mesh Intercom are already pre-installed in the E2. The SC2 is extremely simple to install: Plug in the HD BOOM microphone, remove the covers at the back of the helmet, free the remote control housing on the side, plug both in, turn them on, and you are ready to ride!
Thanks to the Mesh 2.0 technology, the Schuberth SC2 delivers an unparalleled level of intercom connections, redefining the concept of "communication network". With Mesh 2.0 technology, now it is possible to connect with a virtually limitless number of participants. In addition, Schuberth's system offers the latest HD speakers and Microphone by Sena, the advanced noise Control, the digital assistant and a range comparable to the most performing products available on the market.
