The Samshield Helmet was born of a remarkable fusion between the technical vision of engineers and the creative energy of a designer, all focused on fulfilling the most ambitious desires and needs of the fashion-conscious rider.

All Helmets are certified to the latest standards, so they are suitable for Pony/Riding Club, Eventing Showjumping etc.

Key Features:
• New generation of extra strong, extra light polycarbonate paired with an expanded polystyrene (EPS) inner core that absorbs, controls and defuses shock upon impact
• Inner shell can be replaced speedily and cheaply after a fall
• Interchangeable, allowing different sizes to be created within the same shell (subject to shel size)
• Memory foam, giving consistent shape and depth for exceptional fit, comfort and stability
• Fixed with poppers rather than Velcro for simple and accurate placement every time
• Hypoallergenic; breathable; and machine-washable
• Discrete vents above and below the visor avoid the need for unstylish large air intakes
• Highly effective airflow channels help increase circulation and eliminate sweat
• Unique cut-out design creates space between the forehead and the front of the helmet, optimising air flow and reducing pressure and headaches
• Leather covered foam harness anchors the helmet and prevents tipping
Samshield Helmets come boxed, with a drawstring bag.

Samshield Premium Helmet price includes Premium liner but you can purchase additional or padded or spare/replacement ones here

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.

The Premium helmet is available in black, blue and brown & greay.

The Premium is available with the dressage chin strap option: this option allows women to wear their hair in a bun without being constrained by the harness of the helmet. This chin strap is shorter by 2.5 cm in order to allow more room for the hair bun.

If you require a dressage chin strap please just purchase hat as normal and email us on with your order number to let us know - this may take 14-21 days to arrive.
