Schuberth 5-Year Helmet Guarantee
German helmet manufacturer Schuberth now guarantees its helmets for five years, “no strings attached.” The program covers all parts of the helmet, with no additional cost to the customer.
From the company statement: “To bring a claim under the manufacturer’s guarantee, proof of purchase is of course required. To avoid purchasers having to hold on to their receipt for five years, they can register their helmet free of charge” at the official Schuberth website.
In addition to normal wear and tear, only damage from resulting from improper use, incorrect care and tampering with or modifying the helmet is excluded from the guarantee. “Although damage to the helmet caused by an accident is not covered by the guarantee and will not be repaired for safety reason in an circumstances, Schubert does offer the owner the opportunity to purchase an identically constructed helmet at a third of the current, non-binding recommended retail price.”
Schubert has several new helmet models in the works for 2017 as well.
