Please note that this option is available on both the Shadow Matte Helmets as well as the Premium Alcantara Helmets. However, please be aware that this option is limited to only those helmets where the top option is Alcantara.
Here are a few examples of what the new option will look like
Samshield helmet owners know all the advantages of the Samshield Shadow Matte helmet. Shadow Matte Helmets are comfortable, great-fitting with best-in-class ventilation. Best of all, they are hygienic. This is because of the removable inner liner concept. The inner liners of the Samshield helmets are removable and washable. This makes maintenance a breeze. No more sprays for getting the stink out of your helmet.
Recently, the Samshield Shadow Matte family has expanded. Upgraded versions of the Shadow Matte helmet are now available. Those riders that would like more bling or flair have a few more options.
Here we highlight some of the newer designs within the Shadow Matte range.
1. Shadow Matte (regular)
This is the classic Shadow Matte helmet. With a matte tone on tone finish, this helmet is equally well-suited for schooling and show. The matte finish of the helmet makes it easy to clean. The helmet is available in 3 different colors: Black, Navy and Brown.
2. Shadow Matte with 5 Swarovski Crystals
Take the Shadow Matte (regular) and add some bling to it. Just enough to make a statement. The 5 Swarovski crystals below the blason makes a classy and elegant helmet. It is also available in 3 colors: Black, Navy and Brown
3. Shadow Matte with 255 Swarovski Crystals
One of the blingiest (if that is a word) helmets ever. This helmet is adorned with 255 genuine Swarovski Crystals. The crystals run from the front of the helmet alongside the ventilation channels. 5 of the 255 crystals are embedded under the front blason.
4. Shadow Matte Crystal Fabric
This is by the far, one of the finest looking helmets in the ring. The only helmet in the Shadow Matte family to have a contrasting top different than the rest of the shell. The crystal fabric adds elegance to an already beautiful helmet. In the daylight, the crystal fabric sets off tiny fireworks. It sparkles without being gaudy. This is one of the most popular helmets among the show jumping riders. Do not wait as this sells out fast!
5. Shadow Matte Crystal Fabric with 5 Swarovski Crystals
A combination of the Shadow Matte helmet with 5 Swarovski Crystals and Shadow Matte Crystal Fabric. The crystal fabric is delighting and the 5 Swarovski adds just the right amount of bling.
6. Shadow Matte Crystal Fabric with 255 Crystals
Consider this as a combo between the Shadow Matte with 255 Crystals and Shadow Matt Crystal Fabric. By far, this is the most bling loaded helmet available on the market. Just like the others, it also comes available in 3 sizes: Navy, Black and Brown. This helmet is a favorite among both grand prix dressage and show jumping riders.
7. Shadow Matte Shimmer
True to its name, the Shimmer shines and sparkles brilliantly. With the top overlay in special Shimmer material, this helmet makes a statement. It is perfect for the show ring. This helmet is so popular, it is already on back order.
8. Shadow Matte Custom Helmets
For those riders that want more personalization, Samshield offers custom Shadow Matte helmets. With custom Shadow Matte, you can select the color of the trim as well as the blason. Quite a few options are offered for the trim color and finish (Chrome, Titanium, Metallic, Matt or Glossy): Red, Blue, Pink, Orange, Silver, Blue, Black, Gold, Green, Bronze, Yellow, Purple and many more. In addition, you can also place your country flag on the front and/or back of the helmet. Sponsor logos can also be added. Your name can also be printed on the chinstrap.
9. Introducing the Samshield Miss Shield Wide Visor Helmet
The Miss Shield collection from Samshield is the much anticipated helmet. This is Samshield’s answer for the big visor helmet. For a long time, the wide visor helmet has been missing from Samshield’s portfolio.
There you have it. The umbrella of Shadow Matte helmets keeps expanding. Each different style of the helmets come in 3 variations: Without?Swarovski Crystals, 5 Swarovski Crystals, 255 Swarovski Crystals. Add to that, each helmet is available 3 colors: Black, Navy and Brown. There are 27 different helmets to pick from.
Back in June earlier this year, Abby from Orlando was looking for a Custom Samshield Helmet. I helped her with picking out the colors and materials for her custom helmet. Even though you can see what it will look like, it is hard to envision the final product.
This Custom Samshield Helmet features Crocodile (in Black) as the top inlay on Leather Alcantra, with 255 Full Swarovski Stones. The Trim is a Black Chrome. Abby has now received her helmet and is very pleased with how it came out.
As with all Samshield Helmets, the inner liner is detachable. “Detachable” means snap-on and snap-off, not velcro which degrades with use. The liner is light and comfortable, made from memory form, to conform to the shape of the head.
Best of all, the liner is washable (not machine washable), which means you can rinse and air-dry. Say goodbye to smelly helmets. If your liner has been used so much that the helmet does not fit right anymore, all you have to do it buy a new liner. Helmet liners are available for both the Shadow Matte Samshield Helmet and the Custom/Premium Helmet.
One of the most innovative features of the Samshield Helmets is the Full Ventilation Channels running along the top sides of the helmet, to provide superior air-flow.
Among all helmets in its class, Samshield Helmets are by far the lightest. The light weight allows freedom of movement and does not cause discomfort even when worn for extended periods of time.

Who says Helmets are not stylish? A couple days ago, Abby from Orlando stopped by the store, looking for a Samshield Premium Helmet. Abby wanted to upgrade from her current Charles Owen to the Premium Custom Samshield helmet. After trying on a few different sizes, we determined her size is 6 7/8.
