Schuberth C3 Helmet

The Schuberth C3 is the helmet of choice for the ultimate sporting adventure. Thanks to its compact dimensions, this new premium flip-up helmet from Schuberth has no serious rivals on the market. With its unique synthesis of sportiness and comfort, its previously unheard-of noise level of <= 84 dB(A) at 65 mph sets new benchmarks for the industry as a whole.

The helmet is made of S.T.R.O.N.G fibre, a special glass-fibre reinforced Duroplast matrix and is available in two helmet shell sizes

High Performance Aerodynamics

The C3 is the new generation of flip-up helmets. It stands out from the crowd at all times through its advanced aerodynamics and agreeable riding characteristics. The integrated features make it ahead of its time.

C3 - New generation flip-up technology from the SCHUBERTH wind tunnel makes your next touring journey a sheer riding pleasure.

  • Aerodynamic shape
  • Directionally stable
  • No oscillatory tendency
  • No buffeting

Aeroacoustics of the Schuberth C3 Helmet

All SCHUBERTH motorcycle and racing helmets are developed and optimized under scientific conditions in the SCHUBERTH wind tunnel.

Owing to its outstanding aeroacoustic characteristics, the Schuberth C3 is the ideal helmet for your touring journeys.

  • Extremely quiet (due to integrated acoustic collar and anti-noise pad)
  • < = 84 dB(A) at 100 km per hour (with closed machines)
  • Safety principle: the reduced noise level assists the rider's concentration and attentiveness

Pinlock® Visor

  • Guaranteed condensation-free thanks to its double glazing technology
  • Selectable city position 

Ventilation system

  • The C3 has an innovative ventilation system to keep your head cool and comfortable

A.R.O.S (Anti-Roll-Off-System)

The Anti-Roll-Off-System especially developed by SCHUBERTH is provided as a safety feature in every SCHUBERTH motorcycle helmet. It ensures that provided the chinstrap is closed and correctly adjusted:

  • the helmet cannot pivot off the head from behind
  • the risk of contact between the chin section of the helmet and the chin or neck of the rider is minimized due to small angle of tilt
  • the consequences of the helmet coming into contact with the chest as the result of an accident are reduced.
  • the helmet is fastened by a micro-lock ratchet lock

Outer shell

  • The outer shell of the Schuberth C3 Helmet combines an aerodynamically optimal shape suitable for racing with excellent protection.
  • Material: S.T.R.O.N.G.-Fibre
  • New helmet shell technology from SCHUBERTH permits low weight
  • Glass fibre with a special resin added is compressed in a vacuum at a pressure of 6 bar to form a helmet shell which is exceptionally sturdy.

Inner Lining

  • The innovative interior lining of the C3 is outstanding due to its excellent fit and the optimized ventilation system.
  • COOLMAX® pad system, removable and washable
  • Optimized fit thanks to MaxFit concept fitting
  • Skin friendly, warm and breathable Techskin material
  • Variable pad system ensures effective ventilation (see ventilation summer/winter)
  • Allergen-free
  • Antibacterial
  • Hand washable at 30 °C
  • Removable cheek pads

Chin guard

The C3 is characterized by its strong and distortion-free chin guard. The extremely robust chin guard locking system resists very high drag loads.

Other Features

  • Sun Visor is tinted with anti-fog coating
  • SRC-System (Schuberth-Rider-Communication-System) option available
  • US DOT and ECE 22.05 certified
  • Weight: 1,570g including sun visor and acoustic collar (may vary depending on shell size)
  • Made in Germany

Schuberth C3 Helmet 4.6 5 383 383
Go big; make stock adjustments first; love the lid! Now that I have some hours under this lid I feel like I can make an educated review. For a little background, I have a fat head and have had problems with finding a helmet. Any helmet. In fact if I have worn one it's been a half-helmet because I had to or a 3/4 during longer road trips. I love the freedom to choose not to wear one but rain and especially hail hurts at high speeds. My boys who ride (Streetfighter and FZ08) have been grilling me for a while to get a full-face helmet or anything else. After a few months of surfing, questioning, reading up reviews, and comparing I decided to go with the C3. The first C3 I ordered was a 2XL. I thought it was going to be an issue but it was suggested to start a size down. My head measures 63.5 cm which put me in between a 2XL and 3XL. The crown wasn't too bad on the 2XL but I couldn't come close to shut the face and lock it. All the reviews on the chin strap being an issue are very accurate. Within 20 minutes I packed it up and got a RMA to return it. All the reviews on the quality of customer service on returns is very accurate as well. The only bummer was to have to kick out another $500 to get the 3XL sooner but that was not Revzilla's problem. When I got the 3XL I popped it on and again was disappointed because it didn't fit right. It wasn't the helmet; it was me not recalling what everyone said in their reviews to fix some of the issues I was having. If you have a huge melon take these first few steps before trying the helmet on. First, loosen the chin strap entirely. All of it. Watch the video or check online to make sure you have it loosened completely. You can tighten it later. Second, get rid of that stupid anti-noise flap attached by Velcro on the chin. If you have a thick neck like me you'll never use it. Finally, and this was crazy to think it mattered, but pull out the "weather" flaps on the middle bar of the head liner. Helps with pressure on the crown. I plan to cut those off and just get another liner for winter but don't do that until you are buying the lid! Once those three steps are done, you've made all the stock adjustments as much as you can. Anything else could compromise returning the lid. Once I felt I was okay with keeping the C3 I did a couple more adjustments that put me beyond the point of no return (literally). With the chin strap open, take some time with the helmet on and pull the chin strap down to stretch it out. It didn't take long to get the strap a bit looser and had no issue with closing it. Turn your head left and right and look up and down. It it still bothers you undo it and stretch it out for a while again. Rinse and repeat. It's still a little noticeable but then again it's a chin strap! Next, if your cheek pads make your head feel like a pimple about to pop, take them out and put them under something flat and heavy for a couple hours. Absolutely helped. I've got around 20 hours with the C3 and it is all as advertised. Obviously I can't compare it to any other full-face or modular but for someone who has never worn a helmet much this thing is very comfortable and can only get better in time. If anything, I'm a little worried I over-fixed it and it will become a tad loose. If so, I have plenty of do-rags to fill up the extra space. I have seen plenty of helmets and both my boys own a Shoei. I've tried on plenty of cheapo-I'd-rather-tape-a-sponge-on-my-head quality helmets. The quality of the C3 is fantastic. The shield detents lock and stay at reasonable speeds (have had city position open at 75 but I have a windshield as well ... not recommended). I can't fog up the Pinlock visor. As far as quiet, coming from a half to no helmet again it's impossible to compare but all I can say is it's an adjustment to get used to but in a good way. I plan on getting a Sena Bluetooth eventually. Already took my Kuryakyn Sound of Chrome speakers off because they were too muffled. Air flow is fine. I need to cut the winter flaps off I mentioned above and that should help some more. This spring has served up plenty of high winds. We did a recent charity ride and head winds were 30+ mph. I never felt like a bobble-head once. Aerodynamics are also as advertised. Do your homework and pay attention to the reviews and suggestions with the C3. I'm psyched it going to work out and comfortable with the cost of this purchase. May 20, 2015
Very comfortable It's a great fit. I have an HJC IS-33 and fit is same. Sizing is right on. May 20, 2015
Most comfortable helmet I have ever wrapped around my head Fantastic helmet, and at the reduced price, even better! As advertised, this helmet is quiet, the fit is uber comfortable, the features are top notch. Upgraded from my old HJC (which has been an acceptable helmet also), and the difference is quite noticeable. Installed my SENA Bluetooth onto the C3 with relative ease; the initial incoming phone calls were quite deafening; had to crank the volume down considerably! Overall, love the C3, shipping was quick (as usual from RevZilla); also ordered the additional light smoke visor, which I highly recommend. May 18, 2015
I really like this helmet I took a chance buying this helmet because I wasn't able to find a dealer in the area with any in stock to try on so I went ahead and ordered a medium since that is what I wear with most brands. The fit is very good with no pressure points and plenty of room for my glasses. It's a little tight getting it on and off but once in place you can wear it comfortably for a long time. It's is very quite and pretty lightweight as well with better then expected air flow when the visor is fully down. I am also impressed with how well the anti-fog system works to top it off. It is an expensive helmet but if you can afford it I believe it will serve you well. May 12, 2015
Very quite Great helmet! Very quite and stable at 100 mph with no wind shield or fairing. May 12, 2015
So far, so good. I bought this helmet because it was on sale. I went to the only store in my state that sells these so I could see them in person to see if they fit me and what the quality of materials was like. I have owned Shoei and Arai helmets in the past and the Schuberth is nicer than both on the inside. I can't comment about the exterior yet but it looks as nice as either brand. This is my first modular helmet and the reason I went the modular route was because I wear glasses and because I wanted the quietest helmet possible. So far, this is proving to be a good decision. The quick ratchet closure of the neck strap is AWESOME. Every helmet should have this. This is the fastest on/off and most drama-free 'real helmet' I have. I say real helmet, because I also have old vintage 3/4 helmets and a Davida cafe helmet. I've always hated wearing a full face, but this will hopefully change my habits. I suppose anyone reading this wants to know what's NOT to like about the helmet. 1) I find it to be a quiet helmet, but it's not that much quieter than the Shoei RF or an Arai Quantum that I have owned in the past. So you may not be blown away by 'quietness' when you buy this helmet. I ride standard bikes with no wind shields. I sit upright on them. This will change your own experience with wind noise based on how much more you lean over or if you have wind protection. 2) The sun shield thingy doesn't pop down low enough for my taste. You kind of still see the ground in full brightness which screws with my vision compared to wearing sunglasses (which is what I used to do with other helmets.) 3) The visor is a two-handed affair to close it all the way. You can only close it down fully when you're at a stop. 4) The helmet locking system for the front part is a two-handed affair to get it locked before you take off. You have to hold the back of the helmet with one hand and push the front down to lock it with the other hand. 5) Ventilation might leave you underwhelmed. It's cold here so I can't say much about this yet. But so far when I open both vents, I don't feel a lot happening. 6) The 'Mark of Schuberth' is a real thing. I have a red V shaped mark on my forehead as I'm typing this. The helmet doesn't hurt me, but I have a mostly round head. If you like the oval of a Shoei, you might be SOL on this helmet shape because you'll get a headache. Otherwise, all of the good stuff you've read is true. One thing I like about this helmet over my Shoei and Arai is the way the cheek pads are set up. It isn't smashing my cheeks like the Shoei. I'd end up chewing the inside of my cheeks on a long ride when hitting bumps and stuff, to the point I bled in my mouth when I was wearing my Shoei. And the Shuberth has more wrap-around protection than my Arai. I always felt like my Quantum didn't protect my cheeks enough if I ever ended up going face first into an object. The Schuberth feels more secure and the helmet isn't allowed to blow in the wind as much. I feel like I could still talk to myself and not chew up the insides of my cheeks. So if you're a moto-vlogger this seems like as good of option as any that I've used if you need to be talking while riding. That's about it. I'm still getting used to wearing it. I'll report back if something changes my opinion. May 12, 2015
The C3 is a very comfortable and quite helmet Just got this helmet, I commute daily and this product is a vast improvement over my AGV Skyline. It is very quite even at highway speeds. It fits snug but is not uncomfortable. The airflow is easy to control. For the few weeks I have been wearing it, I can say nothing but good thing about it. May 11, 2015
Really happy with this helmet! Price is steep, but I'm glad I invested. I commute 120 miles per day on the Interstate, and my old $100 helmet made the ride feel like a hurricane. Buffeting. Screaming wind noise. Even with ear plugs. The C3 is quiet. Calm. It makes 75 mph feel, well, civilized! May 5, 2015

Can't wait to ride with it.

So I waited a while looking at other helmets, than decided to order another Shoie Neotec. I have one already and I believe Shoie is a better helmet than the Schuberth, at least for me it is. Jan 29, 2015
Larry S: Great reviews Jan 28, 2015
Keith S: Safety. Construction. Ease of use. Dec 29, 2014
Yaveth P: While it is an expensive helmet, I read up on the helmet and listened to the videos on Revzilla and remembered the adage "you get hat you pay for." After purchasing the helmet, I have foregone all my other helmets. The Schuberth was worth every penny! Big thanks to Revzilla for making great review videos, otherwise I might have passed up on the best and last helmet brand I will ever need! Dec 20, 2014
David F: Lightest and safest helmet I found in the market that had a lid that flips up. It also has a smaller overall appearance and doesn't make me look like Marvin the Martian on my bike like the other flip lid helmets did. Nov 28, 2014
Jerome H: This is by far the BEST modular helmet I have ever used Oct 29, 2014
Frank F: THE C3 HELMET FIT ME LIKE A GLOVE Oct 25, 2014
EnReVe: Reading all of the reviews, it is clear that this is a light, safe, quiet and quality helmet. I have to see if it lives up to its reviews. Sep 7, 2014
Doug p: I want the most quiet and high rated helmet available, and this is what I found. I also don't mind at all spending so much money on the most important safety aspect of riding a motorcycle if it proves itself to me to be as quiet as stated. I hope never to find out if it's the safest. Sep 6, 2014
Scott L: This is a good helmet. Fit is perfect - now that I spent another ~$50 on the thinner liner. It's a little noisier than I'd like but is still the quietest helmet I've owned. I got tired of the hassle of sunglasses and earplugs so thought I'd try this helmet. There's no need for either plugs or glasses with this helmet so it is working well for me. The modular feature is also very convenient and the locking mechanism is very sturdy and works easily. Aug 18, 2014
WILLIAM B B: Have a 6yr. old Vemar helmet and a new Yamaha FJR1300A, time to update. Aug 13, 2014
J Rudy B: Why did you choose this?
"I liked the videos explaining the helmets on your website. Also I like the professional consultation I received when I called your phone number."
Aug 2, 2014
John J: Best helmet made. I only get the best protection equipment. Jul 28, 2014
M S: After looking at several helmets on-line and trying on a few locally this helmet had the features I wanted for the price I could pay. The customer service people at RevZilla is second to none and were very helpful in answering my many questions. Reading the customer reviews of this product convinced me that this was a helmet I would be happy with. Jul 19, 2014
Brooke P: I chose this for my new helmet because I wanted a very quiet, lightweight helmet with integrated Bluetooth communication. This is a super nice helmet. I didn't realize how noisy and poor a fit I had in my worn out Nolan until I bought this new helmet. Wow! What a difference!! Jul 7, 2014
David B: Not for me. Just couldn't get it to feel comfortable on my head. Traded it in for the Shoei Neotec Jul 6, 2014
Thomas W: Great fitting helmet, very comfortable. Jun 29, 2014
thomas m: ride a open bike .a 40 year old r90s bmw .my first new bike 40 years ago. needed the safety and quiet Jun 28, 2014
Larry R: Reduce sound level while riding. Jun 24, 2014
Michael m: The best modular on the market at 100.00 off! need I say more? Jun 22, 2014
Rodney B: Had a C2. The C3 is the best helmet going. Only complaint is bugs seem to be able to enter through the air scoop on top. Riding the West I frequently had to let them out. I have added a pourous mesh to keep them out and still have air flo. You should work on this.

Ron H: Most awesome helmet made. You get what you pay for in protection! Jun 1, 2014
Anthony M: Comfortable and quiet...my 2nd....1st one wore out and it was time to replace. I had looked at others, but this is the best helmet out there (I frequently wear for 11+ hours without discomfort) May 31, 2014
E A: I have compared Schubert, Shoei, and Aria helmets. I wasn't impressed with the Arias. I repeatedly tried on the Shoeis and Schuberths and both were comfortable and both were highly rated, but the C3 helmet is rated as the quietest helmet on the modular market. When Revzilla put the Schubert C3 on sale, it was time to pull the trigger on a new helmet. I do not know how quiet it actually is, but I will find out shortly. The standard pin lock visor was a big plus as well. May 29, 2014
C H: I already own orange c3 but wanted black for other rider. Upgraded c3 pro did not offer a upgrades I needed and c3 was on sale. My current c3 fits right and I like modulars because I wear glasses and most have internal sunshades. May 26, 2014
Dale W: Because I have had a C3 and I was in an accident, a pickup pulled out in front of me and I T-Boned the truck. No broken bones just real deep muscle trauma. The C3 was destroyed but NO head injury. I really didn't like the helmet prior to the accident but I like it now, so I bought another. May 24, 2014
A s: This is the only helmet you need to buy. Yes, it is more expensive. It's the best, the quietest - get over it. An awesome helmet! May 14, 2014
Keith K: Quality of Schuberth Products May 10, 2014

A shopper asked: I currently own an Arai Profile (purchased from RevZilla) which fits my head shape as perfectly as I can imagine (no "hot spots" and tight fit). I originally tried an Arai RX-Q and immediately had hot spots on my forehead, which then made me try the Profile. However, the C3 has some appealing capabilities including the ability to install the BMW Motorrad Bluetooth system for full integration with my R1200RT. Based on my fit experience with the RX-Q and Profile, would the C3 be a viable option for me? Sep 26, 2011

cwo4usn: I haven't owned an Arai for many years, so I can't comment upon them. I wear a 7 1/8 to 7 1/4 U.S. hat size: from several Google search returns, that equates to a metric/E.U. size 58. I ordered a 58 from Revzilla, but they sent a size 59. Out of the box that seemed too tight. At about the 3rd donning, however, it seemed perfect, and has remained so since. The fit is excellent for me. And, in answer to my direct question to Revzilla Customer Service, they will allow a free return for up to 30 days, if you don't like the helmet. Pretty fair deal. -- cwo4usn Oct 3, 2011

Oldgoldwinger: I've never owned an Aria. But, I can say that I almost returned my C3 because of tight spots in a helmet that, except for these spots, was obviously the correct size. After a short break-in period, those spots disappeared and it has become the most comfortable helmet I've owned in over 40 years of riding. Sep 27, 2011

Stevan P: The Schuberth has a much rounder internal shape than the Profile, and might take some additional break in time as noted below. We strongly suggest trying all helmets on at home before taking them on the road to ensure a comfortable fit. Oct 20, 2011

A shopper asked: My Schuberth C3 is the best helmet i have ever owned. (riding for almost 40 years) my question: i typically prefer riding with the face shield at about the 1/2 open detent position, but at speed it slams to closed. Is there an adjustment to make the dent positions more positive? Jul 25, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Paul L: I don't know of any built-in adjustment. I like to ride with the shield cracked open a bit, too, but haven't had a problem, perhaps because I have moderately large windshield (BMW R1150RT).
If you seldom want to close it all the way you could fasten a small rubber bumper onto the lower inner edge of the shield.
Good luck!

Brooke P: I have the same helmet and don't have that problem. But I have a wind screen that deflects most on coming air to just the top part of my helmet. If I stick my head above the windshield at highway speeds or ride very fast, then the face shield will blow almost closed. Sorry for your issue, but no magic bullets from this rider. Jul 25, 2014

David F: Unfortunately not that I know off. Unlike the Arai helmets that have a locking section on their faceshield to allow you to raise the shield a little bit so as to allow air in and keep the helmet from fogging. I can't find such lock or indent on the Schuberth face shield that will do this. Jul 25, 2014

Sgt7212: I was wearing a Bell Star Carbon before purchasing the Schuberth C3. My Bell Star was a medium and I also ended up in a medium with the C3.

Limdog: Schuberth has unique sizing so I would really recommend trying on the helmet. From the Schuberth sizing chart I was a S, but when I tried it on it was way small so I had to go with a M. Although, I too have a Scorpion exo400 and am a M in that helmet. Jun 5, 2012

Guideboat: It depends on your head shape, but go smaller the helmet will adjust. Tighter is better than looser. I have been wearing a Schuberth helmet for many years, own the C3 it is an outstanding helmet. No comparison.

BoBeenie: You're so close, I'd go XL. The 1/4" will break in easily after a little riding. The XXL would likely be loose. Most reviews of this helmet say it fits snug or tight. I'd describe it as more of a "tailored" fit. It's very precisely made. My head measured 24 1/8 and went with the XL...fits perfectly. At 24.25, you'll be fine. Mar 16, 2012

A shopper asked: I'm looking to buy a couple of these helmets. Most reviews say that these helmets are awesome. In fact BMW recommends this as their preferred helmet.

But I am hearing feedback from owners on forums that this is the loudest helmet they have ever worn. Reading posts for hours I believe that the problem is the that the BMW has a fairing. This faring causes eddie currents to stream by the helmet and hit at angles causing extreme helmet noise. The proof was also interesting in that if on that same BMW you stood up on the front foot pegs while riding, the helmet now on straight in the air went nearly silent.

So my question is this?

What are my alternatives, or will all like helmets suffer the same fate on this bike.

Lastly, BMW makes their own helmet, also manufactured by Schumerth and sold as the "BMW System 6 Helmet". This is not for sale in America but can be ordered from England or Canada and shipped here.

I've got an awesome bike in the K1600 but I need a helmet that works. Any recommendations?

Thank you!

Guideboat: I have owned a C1 Schuberth for years, upgraded to the C3 it is an outstanding helmet. Yes, windshield position can impact rider noise but it is not the helmet. Adjust the windshield to limit buffeting. Also most noise is from underneath the helmet at the collar. Make sure your clothing isn't the problem not the helmet.

I also own several other helmets Arai, HJC Symax and a couple other full face models. Those do not come close to being as quiet as the Schuberth. I just rode nearly 4K on a road trip with the Schuberth and noise was never a consideration with this helmet.
Nov 17, 2011
Reply to Guideboat Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
GregH: In general, on a full face helmet, noise can be partially controlled by the neck roll density of the helmet. This goes for engine and wind noise. Some helmets are doomed to be noisy, but others can be adjusted by pushing up or down on the chin bar. When you push up, the neck roll may compress more and make the helmet quieter.
Also, if you are going to do any lengthy highway riding, earplugs are a wise option. I recommend the foam type. 3M Classic (yellow) are comfortable and can be worn all day. Buy a 200 count box and you are set for a long, long time.

Oldgoldwinger: There's a piece that fits under your chin that is removed when you install the BMW communication system. With this gone, it is a little louder. Otherwise I don't find it excessively Loud and I have the communication system and have been able to refit the chin piece. So, problem solved. You can also reduce noise with the adjustable wind screen. Nov 26, 2011
Reply to Oldgoldwinger Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
wintermute: I have 2 of these helmets, and don't find it loud at all. Especially with the under-chin windscreen in place, it is one of the quietest helmets I've ever worn. I suspect those that are complaining have removed the under-chin screen, and thereby disabled the helmets quieting system. I'd disregard, and try it yourself. Nov 7, 2011

Marcus1: From original poster, me...

The Schuberth manual in small print also states that the voice cancellation qualities of the C3 can be compromised on "faired" motorcycles. The faring causing disturbances in the wind path that the helmet was not designed for.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Dale R: I am not familiar with the G4 but since it is the type that mounts to the outside edge of the helmet, I would assume it would not fit due to the Schuberth visor slider. I have the Schuberth SRC Bluetooth system on my helmet which is built by Cardo (same company that makes the Scala Rider) for Schuberth. It takes the place of the original neck pad and integrates perfectly in the helmet. Although it is rather expensive, it is well worth the money and is the best headset I have every used.

I love my C3 with the SRC system and would highly recommend it to anyone. The helmet is well built, very quiet, and light.

Brooke P: I just took a look at my C3 helmet and I'm afraid that the externally mounted Scala clamp would be a very, very tight fit on the already tightly engineered helmet. I highly recommend doing what I did- spring for built in Scala bluetooth especially designed for this helmet. It is a perfect fit and helps keep the helmet super quiet with no appendages dragging in the wind by your ear. I now have an extra helmet (for a passenger) with my old Scala blue tooth.

David F: I'm not sure. I use a Uclear HBC100 where the microphone is built into the earpieces and it works perfectly. The space between the liner and the outershell of the SChuberth is quite tight so it may be difficult.

jpark: Yes, I followed Gromit's suggestion and used the SMH10 helmet clamp kit for earbuds with attachable boom microphone and wired microphone, part # A0304. It's available thru Revzilla but they sell out quickly. Just attach the boomed mic behind the cheekpieces and pass it out from behind them as he suggested, connect to the base and you're good to go. As he mentioned, use the additional base with the adhesive backing they provide with the kit-mounts easily behind the slide for the sunvisor. You can buy earbuds almost anywhere. May 19, 2012

Gromit: I fit my SMH-10 to the C3. RevZilla is right about the slider, it is right where you would put the base for the SMH-10. I used the alternate base, the one for earbuds and set it back on the helmet just rearward of the slider. I used the included double sided tape and moved the mic inside so it comes out behind the cheek pads.

RevZilla: The Sena SMH-10 doesn't fit well with the Schuberth because of the slider bar that activates the drop down sunbar. If you attempt an install, you would need to use the double sided tape mount that comes with the Sena, however, the SRC system is the better fit for this helmet. Mar 21, 2012

RevZilla: As would be the case when installing any Bluetooth communications system other than the SRC, the U-CLEAR HBC200 Force Bluetooth Communicator will not clamp to the C3's shell due to the position of the slider that operates the helmet's internal sun shield. If you decide to go this route, you would need to use the double sided tape that comes with the HBC200. Dec 27, 2012

Slooping60605: You can but you are going to need to find a creative way to mount it. Because of the neck roll there is no crevice to latch onto as on many other helmets. Velcro might work.

A shopper asked: I wear a Shoei X-11 size L, marked 59-60cm and it fits perfectly. Which size C3 will work best for me, and has anyone here switched from Shoei (that they liked) to a Schuberth C3? Thanks.

Additional info: I tried a HJC Sy-max size L and found it to be awful. It crushed my forehead while at the same time feeling loose everywhere else and it even rolled forward 3/4 the way off my head despite being strapped snugly.

BigCharles: I used to use a Shoey.
The Schuberth in the same size became smaller, and much squeezing the sides of the head.
The chin was also difficult to fit.
I had to give up the Schubert envying people who do not have a 4XL head. By the way, after this I tried the Scorpion EVO 900 ant it is worst than Schuberth.
My wife tried a larger size but was a little loose. But most people I know use a larger size for the Schuberth.
The best way is to try it. Helmet is very personal. Go to the store, put on his head and keep it at least 10 minutes.
Ride safe and good luck!

Oldgoldwinger: I switched from a Shoei to the C-3. The Shoie was an xl, so that's what I got in the C3. Initially I thought I'd made a mistake. It seemed very tight. After a few wearings, it broke in, and now it's the most comfortable helmet I've ever owned (light and quiet). Nov 26, 2011

A shopper asked: I have a 60-61 system 5 helmet, so would I be the same in the schuberth? I believe in the BMW I'd be a 61-62 in the flip-up, as they are a slightly tighter fit. And I can't try on a schuberth as we don't have them here. Nov 4, 2011

Marcus1: No, there are several differences, actually completely diffieredt designs but both made by Schuberth. The System 6 is a soft shell helmet. Not DOT3 certified and is not supposed to be used (also not sold) in the USA.

But they can be ordered from England or Canada and shipped to USA. But again, not street legal in USA.

FYI, soft does not mean bad, just that Europe has different thoughts as to which helmet shell type is safer.

The hull have the same size.
The shin section of BMW S6 is a little smaler than the C3.

A shopper asked: Is the Schuberth Snell M2010 certified? Jun 13, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
AugCarr: It does not appear to be. From the owners manual downloaded from their site (http://www.schuberth.com/fileadmin/downloads/C3_manual.pdf):

"The C3 conforms to the ECE-R 22.05 standard. This test standard
guarantees conformity to defi ned safety standards in respect of
impact absorption, penetration resistance, lateral rigidity, retention
system and fi eld of vision. The approval guarantees that you have
approval for all the countries of the European Union and all countries
which recognise the ECE standard. It also guarantees conformity fo
insurance purposes in the event of a claim.
Please note that this C3 with ECE approval is specifi cally orientated
to the ECE standard and is therefore particularly not approved for the
USA or Canada. It is only legal to use it in countries where the ECE
standard is valid.
Note:
The only SCHUBERTH helmets legal for use in the USA or Canada
are those with appropriate approval and technical specifi catio.
Further information and sales outlets for these helmets can be
found on the Internet at:
www.schuberth.com/usa
www.schuberth.com/canada"

I would guess that since this is distributed in the USA, it is DOT certified. They do not site SNELL certification anywhere on the website or in the manual. All that said, the ECE 22.05 standard seems to be a well respected safety standard that has emerged in the European Union. If your local regulations do not require the SNELL standard, it may be worth researching the ECE 22.05 standard to see if it meets your requirements. See http://live.unece.org/trans/main/wp29/wp29regs21-40.html for more information (Regulation 22 - Rev 4.)

Oldgoldwinger: I have the C3 and my wife has the women's version. They are the quietest and lightest helmets that I have ever had and we are very happy with them. The only difference between the two versions is the liner. When we bought them, I asked the folks at Schuberth and they explained that the liner in the women's helmet was easier to wash to prevent staining from makeup. Jun 18, 2011

Gary2011: It isn't just the circumference, but the shape. I have a C3 and over 10k miles on it and I am still moving it around while I ride to keep relieve the forehead pressure point. I had a Schubreth Concept for 5 years and it fit fine; the C3 doesn't. Good luck. Oct 6, 2011

TexasSoloRider: I've evaluated both also. With the C3s now on clearance, I bought it, but not just because of price. It is unquestionable the quietest helmet on the market. Permanent hearing loss occurs with repeated exposure to sound above 85 decibels. The C3 only brings the noise down to 84 decibels at 60 mph. There are "a lot" of variable that create noise while on a motorcycle (placement of mirrors, height of windshield - if there is one, etc.) So, I still ride with ear plugs. Ear plugs rarely get their rated noise reduction, but together with the C3, they get it down to a safe level. Jun 1, 2013

jpark: I have both helmets, so I can say that for me, the Schuberth is lighter, fits more snugly, and is slightly more comfortable. They both move abut the same amount of sir and are nice helmets, but I do favor the Schuberth, mainly because it's lighter and a little more comfortable for me. May 31, 2013

A shopper asked: The J&M headset/mic modular helmet style uses a audio connector on the side of the helmet--usually the left side of the helmet. Would this application intefer with the sun visor mechanism or with other aspects of the flip up C3? Mar 26, 2012

AZOKIE: From the J&M Web page, J&M has an approved DOT installation they will provide for $75 plus the cost of their special headset/mic kit specifically for the C3. Apparently they do not sell the special headset kit separately. You send your C3 to them and they do the mounting. I asume it is still available. Mar 29, 2012

jordan d: I have never owned a shoei helmet so I cannot answer directly. I had recently been run over on my Harley and decided I would invest in the best helmet I could buy. The schuberthhad a reputation for safety and it had all the features I wanted. I followed the sizing chart on the website and it fit spot on. I have no regrets nor complaints about the helmet.
