The outer shell of the Shadowmatt is made of polycarbonate, which is a material used, among other things, for high-end motorcycle helmets. It is covered with anti-scratch mat painting.
The inner shell is made of polystyrene with variable density providing a better dissipation of the energy produced upon impact.
The internal comfort foam, “shape memory”-kind, ensuring a constant thickness over the years of use and the semi-rigid jugular cancel all risks of tipping the helmet in case of a violent movement.
This internal comfort foam is removable thanks to a much stronger clip system than the scratch/Velcro system.
It can therefore be washed at will in order to constantly be able to wear a clean and fragrant helmet.
A thorough anthropomorphic study led to design an inner-shell form generating an unmatched comfort.
3 shell sizes are available: S, M, L.
Each shell can accommodate 4 to 5 inner foams of different sizes in order to obtain a perfect adjustment to the rider’s head.
The size grid is available from 52 to 61.
With this system, it is also possible to follow the growth of a young rider.
Equipped with a front air inlet, the Shadowmatt helmet provides exceptional ventilation.
Fresh air is channeled from the front entrance to the back extractors around comfort foam which prevents from sweating.
This concept generates a strong internal airflow avoiding the need for visible and unsightly air inlets: the equestrian elegance is retained without banishing technicality and comfort.
For the first time in Samshield’s history, Samshield decided to launch an exclusive Limited Edition Christmas Collection that captivates elegance, sophistication and style in a compact range of helmets from Shadowmatt, to Miss shield encrusted with limited edition stones with a further exciting capsule being added to this in early 2021.
Samshield founder, Sam Maloigne, took the inspiration for this exclusive range from the major french fashion house, Dior, in their recent launch of their Matt collection of luxury handbags which embody a unique, feminine and stylish twist on their classic range.
The Matt palette has previously been associated with masculinity but worldwide has evolved to a unisex trend ranging in clothing, makeup and accessories.
