Stay cool, dry and comfortable with the Samshield Premium Helmet. Designed in conjunction with actual riders just like you, it has all the features you want in a helmet with a stylish, modern look. Instead of unsightly exterior vents, thePremium uses air canals under the visor for incredible airflow. While the padding is fitted and comfortable, it doesn't make contact with the front of your forehead - no more helmet-induced headaches, dented foreheads or skin problems from sweaty padding! Over time, the memory foam inserts will not break down, so the helmet will fit as perfectly as when you bought it. Removable, washable lining. Waterproof and fadeproof Alcantara suede exterior. Leather harness. ASTM/SEI approved.

Materials for Optimal Safety: 

The outer shell of the helmet is made of polycarbonate, which is a material used, among other things, for high-end motorcycle helmets. The inner shell is made of polystyrene with variable density providing a better dissipation of the energy produced upon impact. 


The internal foam is like memory foam, which ensures a constant thickness over years of use and the semi-rigid jugular cancels all risks of tipping the helmet in case of violent movement. The internal comfort foam is removeable thanks to a clip system that is much stronger than a velcro system. The liner can be washed at will, so your helmet will be constantly clean and fragrant. 

Perfect Size adjustment for unmatched comfort: 

A thorough anthropomorphic study led to the design of an inner shell that generates unmatched comfort. Each shell can accomodate 5 to 6 inner foam liners of different sizes, in order to obtain a perfect fit. 

Incredible Internal Airflow: 

Equipped with two front air inlets, the Premium helmet provides exceptional ventilation. Fresh air is channeled from both the front entrance under the blazon as well as the channel obtained by the unique concept of no contact on the front of the forehead. Fresh air expels the hot air to the back extractors. This concept generates a strong internal airflow that gets rid of the need for visible/unsightly air vents: Equestrian elegance is retained without banishing technicality or comfort.

    Love the helmet, Equus Now! has the BEST customer service.

    Posted by katsharp on 20th Aug 2014

    I waited several months for Helmets 4 Riders! day to order Samshield helmets for me and my daugter. I chose the Premium. My daughter chose the Matt. Equus Now! had the best discounts I could find from any vendor. Selection and checkout online were easy. I originally chose the Premium helmet with the leather inlay. When it arrived, I was not pleased with the way the leather was situated as an inlay. It was ribbed and the ribbing did not line up in an aesthetically pleasing way. In fact, it looked just plain wrong and like a "second." Given that this was a $500+ helmet, I did not think this was acceptable. I contacte Equus Now! and they replied immediately. I sent them pictures and they contactede Samshield. Samshield did not consider this to be a defect (big problme). Equus Now! agreed to return it and replace it with the Alacantaara version, at the same sale price and free shipping. WONDERFUL customer service. EXCELLENT communication.
    As to the helmet itself, as noted above, I was NOT pleased with the leather and the way that it looked. The Alacantara version is beautiful. It is the most comfortabel helmet ever. It has great air circulation, low profile and an easily removeable liner for cleaning and "airing out." I love that the shells come in 3 sizes and that you "fit" the helmet with the liner. It makes it easy to accomodate hair up or down...or hair cuts without replacing or having to have multiple sizes. It is the most comfortable helmet every. The chin strap is a bit forward, but not a problem for me or my daughter. I am VERY pleased with both the product and the top notch customer service from Equus Now! I will definitely be a repeat customer.
