Technology of Shadowmatt & Premium helmets


Before drawing Samshield helmets we have surveyed hundreds of amateur riders, pros, ponies and their parents. We asked them what they were complaining about their current helmet. Their answers were unanimous.

With Samshield helmets forget your problems of:

Because passive safety (helmet ability to absorb an impact) is essential, Samshield helmets are made with the same technologies as motorcycle helmets : polycarbonate external shell + variable density inner shell polystyrene which ensure an excellent impact absorption and allow Samshield to exceed safety standards required. More info

Incredible airflow by air canalization under the visor (therefore no big unstylish air intakes on the shell).

Less pressure on the forehead. A thorough anthropomorphic study led to design an inner shell form generating an unmatched confort.

Insert with memory form foams therefore no squeezable. Strap equipped with leather around and rigid foam inside allowing to completely blocking the helmet.

Inside cleaning
Insert removable (clip system fixation) and washable.

External color fading
Shell equipped with original Alcantara®.

After sales service
Replacement of eventual damaged parts in case of impact.

Technology of XC & XJ helmets

Here is the list of active safety (ability to reduce dangerous situations) and comfort issues described by riders and jockeys, and the solutions and changes we brought to the design of the XC helmet:

Carbon fiber outer shell construction combined with polystyrene inner shell provides excellent impact absorption and allows Samshield helmets to exceed safety standards required. More info

Incredible airflow by air canalization.

A thorough anthropomorphic study led to design an inner shell form generating an unmatched comfort.

The internal comfort foam (liner), “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.

Inside cleaning
Insert (liner) removable (clip system fixation) and washable.

After sales service
Replacement of eventual damaged internal polystyrene shell in case of impact.

It is no longer necessary to cover the helmet with a hat to hide an outdated style.

The XC helmet was designed to meet active and passive safety requirements for extreme disciplines which are cross-country and racing.

These requirements being more important than for dressage and jumping, a specific certification is required to participate in international competitions for these disciplines: PAS015 standard.

This standard requires to increase the thicknesses of the inner and outer shells, and necessarily creates more weight. Therefore, for the XC helmet, Samshield decided to choose a pure carbon fiber external shell, a composite material providing an unbeatable strength / weight ratio.

The inner shell is made of polystyrene with variable density providing a better dissipation of the energy produced upon impact.

For this purpose XC helmet is designed and produced in a South Korean premium motorcycle helmets factory (Koreans are known to be the best producers of motorcycle helmets with the Japanese).

The XJ (Jumping version of the XC) has the same technical features.

XC and XJ helmets meet CE VG1 01.040 2014-12, BS VG1 01.040 2014-12, PAS015:2011 and SEI/ASTM F1163 standards.



To clean the outer shell of the helmets (Shadowmatt, Premium Alcantara, XC or XC-J) it is recommended to use cleaning wipes or simply a wet sponge with natural soap. Helmets should be left to dry naturally.

To maintain the leather chin strap of the Premium, XC or XC-J helmets, it is recommended to use boot polish with silicone that will waterproof the leather (same process for the leather top of the Premium).

To clean the liner it is possible to use a washing machine but best way is hand wash with soap because it doesn’t need a 30’/1h washing program!

Always inspect the inside and outside of the helmet as well as the chin strap before and after use. When the helmet is not use, it should be stored away from the light. The helmet should never be exposed to temperatures lower than -20°C or higher than +50°C.

Any contact with corrosive or aggressive substances should be avoided. Use solvents can alter the characteristics of the helmet and compromise its quality.
The life-span of the helmet will depend on its careful maintenance and use.
