Why should you choose Samshield helmet among riding helmets?


Samshield was founded by Sam Malogine, who is a former motocross racer and sales manager for Oakley. In 2003 Sam was introduced to horseback riding by a friend. He bought one of the top riding helmets on the market at the time but soon discovered that it was very uncomfortable. Many professional riders also complained about the discomfort. Then in his head was born the idea to create an innovative, beautiful and luxurious helmet, which will raise existing standards of safety and comfort.

What makes Samshield helmets different?

Samshield helmets are created from the highest quality materials. The shell of the helmet is made of extremely durable material which is high-quality polycarbonate. Polycarbonate can withstand very high mechanical loads while maintaining a low weight. Its strength is comparable to that of aluminum. For the finishing of the helmets are used, depending on the model, materials such as Alcantara®, classic and exotic leathers such as crocodile skin, lizard, python or stingray or special material covered with Swarovski crystals. Samshield helmets are handmade which ensures the highest quality. Used materials and precision make Samshield helmets are extremely exclusive product for the most demanding riders.

Unprecedented comfort

Thanks to the special construction of Samshield helmets, they offer the rider unprecedented comfort. This is due to the use of extremely light materials and the special shape of the inner part of the helmet shell so that the rider’s forehead is in no way pressed. The helmet’s insert was made of a special kind of sponge thanks to which it perfectly adjusts to the shape of the rider’s head ensuring its high stability.

Easy in keeping hygiene.

Maintaining proper hygiene of the helmet is easy thanks to the use of replaceable inserts, which can be easily cleaned. In addition, a very efficient ventilation system provides optimal air flow in the shell of the helmet which has a positive effect on maintaining proper hygiene.
