Danish SCHARF Riding Helmets with Superior Style and Quality
Written by Betsy LaBelle - In Dressage Directory - Wednesday, March 25, 2015
Made in Denmark and U.S. approved, SCHARF Riding Helmets have proved to be a cut above every other riding helmet. “I wear them, yes,” says Lars Petersen, Olympian and top dressage rider. “I’ve worn a lot of other helmets, and didn’t like them. They always felt too heavy. The first time I put one on was in Denmark and I liked it right away. They’re lighter than all the others, are adjustable in the back, and you can tighten or loosen the brim.”
Quality craftsmanship you can see right down to the top-of-the-line fabric, beautiful leather stitching and genuine leather of the cheek and chin strap, SCHARF Riding Helmets are unusually airy with 11 vents. Worn by many top Danish riders for their strength and durability, they are available in different designs and colors and can be customized with suede, Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), lacquer or rubber coating and enhanced with Swarovski crystals.
Especially lightweight and weighing no more than 470 grams (just slightly over one pound), the sun reflects away from the helmet with state-of-the-art 3MTM Scotchlite® reflective material. The Coolmax® lining is removable and washable and the adjustable buckles are made by YKK®, a globally awarded company that sets high stands for quality and innovative fasteners.
Tested and approved by the European Union (EU), designer and owner Christina Scharf said, “The continual goal of the factory is to provide high quality, comfortable and reasonably priced helmets. SCHARF Riding Helmets takes great pride and honor that every single helmet we make is sealed with safety.”
She explained, “Quality is paramount. The SCHARF Riding Helmet is specialized in helmet design, manufacturer and advance technology, down to full computer analysis. The factory invented In-Mold Technology and has been going strong since 1992, by far the highest in-house rate among all other factories including R/D, holding, plastic injecting and vacuuming foaming facility. The factory is a SEI, TÛV/GS and ISO 9001 certified factory with products conform the quality standard of CE, ASTM and CPSC. Up to the present, the factory has more than 155 patents and also 34 patents currently under process.”
