The Samshield story is one of legend. Founder Sam Maloigne, after a decade-long career as a French motocross/supercross international professional pilot and then sales manager for Oakley, began riding in 2003. Disappointed by the technical failures of the best riding helmets at the time, he started a project to create a riding helmet that would bring the security, comfort, and customizability he was used to in helmets in the motocross/supercross world. He partnered with Nicolas Delmotte, Simon Delestre, and Kevin Staut to create the high-quality and high-performance helmets that Samshield is known for today. Samshield helmets are specifically adapted to show jumping, dressage, racing, polo, and eventing activities.
You can count on Samshield for engineer-precision safety. Samshield’s helmets feature technical elements that are highly tested and tried for their protective ability. They are also supremely comfortable, and adjustable for a perfect fit. Today, customers also appreciate Samshield’s technical clothing line, including breeches, shirts, competition coats, as well as outerwear. The Samshield R&D office consistently generates some of the best products on the market today.
The Samshield Shadowmatt helmet is iconic, and our customers regularly seek it out. This helmet is also available in a fit specifically designed for women, the Samshield Miss Shield, and in a highly-popular rose gold version. The brand’s V Shield riding gloves are another favorite. Many of our customers enjoy Samshield’s gloves featuring Swarovski crystals.
“I won’t wear any other helmet than my Miss Shield! Nothing else fits my head correctly, or makes me feel as confident… safe AND stylish!!” - Susan H.
“I’m a petite rider and finding a flattering show coat can be difficult. Then I tried the Samshield Alix coat and all my worries were solved! Super flattering fit and so comfy that I can wear it all day long.” -Beth L.
