The Seer S1608 and S1602 models are made from hand-laminated fiberglass outer shell.
If the Seer S1602 and S1608 models are made from fiberglass, what is the Seer S2108 and S2102 made from? You can find information about the Seer S2108 and S2102 models by clicking this link.
One of the most common questions that we receive is "What is the difference between the Seer S1608 and the Seer S1602? First, both helmets are made from the same hand-laminated fiberglass outer shell, inner liner, and interior. Information on the materials used to make a Seer Helmet can be found on our website.
The difference between the two helmet models are: 1) visor, 2) harness, and the paint trim lines (if applicable).
Visor: The visor on the S1608 is a black patent leather visor. The visor is non-removable and is attached to the helmet with 2 decorative screw buttons and one center screw. The visor is available with Gold, Silver or without a rank band. The visor is available with "P" or "S" decorative buttons.
Harness: The helmet harness on the S1608 is a closed ear harness. The closed ear harness has 6 perforated holes for hearing attenuation.
Visor: The visor on the S1602 is a black plastic snap-on visor. The visor snaps onto the helmet with three snaps. The plastic visor is available in Solid or Transparent/Smoke. The visor is available with Gold, Silver or without a rank band.
Harness: The helmet harness on the S1602 is an open ear harness.
If you build your helmet with Two Colors, there is another difference between the S1608 and the S1602.
The paint trim lines on the S1608 is a "straight-line trim". The horizontal trim line is parallel to the ground on the sides and rear of the helmet.
The paint trim lines on the S1602 is a "curved trim". The horizontal trim line follows the curvature of the helmet around the sides and rear of the helmet.
At Super Seer we manufacture each helmet by hand at the time of ordering. This allows the user to customize the Seer Helmet in many ways. For example, you can build your Seer Helmet with the S1602 visor, the S1608 paint trim, and the S1602 harness.
