Alaska Women´s Motorcycle Tour

Ride the best Alaskan roads with adventurous ladies from all over. This tour features Denali National Park, the Alaska Range, Mt. McKinley, Thompson Pass and Valdez. See more of Alaska than most Alaskans!
Alaska Women's Ride Participants Will Receive a Free Schuberth C3W Helmet
The Schuberth C3W helmet is the world's first modular helmet to be engineered specifically for women, and riders attending this year's Alaska Women's Ride will each receive a free C3W from Schuberth North America.

The C3W features the same aeroacoustically superior shell design found in Schuberth's C3 modular helmets for maximum aerodynamic performance with minimal wind noise, while the interior shape incorporates a narrower jawline and higher cheekbone padding to better fit the contours of a woman's face. The microfiber liner is antibacterial and hypoallergenic to protect sensitive skin, and is easily removed for cleaning.

For more information about these great helmets, visit Schuberth's website.
