Schuberth C3 Helmet Videos

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 5 480 480
Excellent helmet.. highly recommend Excellent helmet.. If you haven't done so.. I highly recommend the replacement liner for the S2 it totally alleviates the forehead pressure point on original C3. Love the SRC com. It's a great pairing ..no external hardware..replaces neckroll. II also love the built in visor. I've have 9 helmets from all the different manufacturers and I only wear the Schuberth since I bought it 4 yrs ago November 23, 2015
Awesome Helmet. Give it a try and you won't be disappointed. I had never heard of this brand before but after watching the Revzilla video I decided to give it a try. This is by far the most quiet helmet I have ever worn. The tinted internal half shield is great if you get caught without your sunglasses and its easy to deploy. The helmet is a shade small but nothing crazy. Probably will be fine once fully broken in. My only small complaint is the the shield won't stay open in the first open position while driving in highway conditions. November 16, 2015
Brilliant helmet; great value I love every feature of this helmet except one (talk about that in a mo). The noise level is good; i don't have to wear ear plugs, the ventilation is superb but the best thing is the aerodynamics of the beast; no buffeting at all off the wind shield. I'm riding a Triumph Tiger 800. So to the only down side. Where the pinlock screen attaches to the visor the upper line of the pinlock is directly in my vision; that's really poor design. My son has a pinlock on a full face helmet that cost half the price of the Schuberth and there is no vision obstruction. However, the overall vote is a big YES. November 9, 2015
For the price there shouldn't be any issues Let me first say that I really like how light and quiet this helmet is. The chin strap is easy to connect and disconnect. The visor is good and comes down farther than most. I enjoy riding in all types of weather but I will break out my old Scorpion EXO400(way out of date) if there's a chance of rain. This helmet leaks around the visor and the water blows into your eyes, even with the internal visor down. That's unacceptable for a helmet of this price. November 6, 2015
Overall, the product was good. It was good. The noise level was a little louder than expected. October 26, 2015
Excellent Helmet This is my first modular helmet, but not my first full face helmet. The aspect of it being modular adds a bit of weight to it, but nothing that took more than a couple hours to become completely accustomed to. I've put about 2,500 miles under my helmet now and I must say it is extremely comfortable, quieter than my non-modular (hard to believe I know), and very easy to operate even with heavy gloves on. I spend about 1.5-2 hours in my helmet everyday and the only complaint I have is that in order to help reduce noise in the helmet there are no venturi vents in the back making the helmet a little warmer than others I have owned. However even on the hottest days this summer I had no issues staying comfortable while at cruising speed. In town I just cracked the visor to the first detent and good to go. Finally, the internal sun visor is fantastic. I wear glasses and not once has the sunscreen been an issue for me. Operation is smooth and also easy to use with large gloves on. October 19, 2015
Great helmet I just took it out for about 900 miles this weekend. Up and down california riding from 5 hours on highway 5 at 80 miles an hour to the twistes up hwy 1. This is really a great helmet. It replaced a Nolan N103. The helmet aerodynamic design is everything it is touted. I've never had a helmet that did not even feel like it was impacted by the wind. No buffeting atall. The helmet is a very quiet helmet, the quietest helmet i have wver tried. That said, it is a motorcycle helmet and you should still use earplugs for long trips. I probably won't use them or need them for my 45 minute commute, but for longer rides definately. (85 decibles can cause damage from extended exposure, so the expected sound levels of even this helmet is too much). The ventilation was very good at the top, you could feel a noticeable difference between open and closed. The front vent could be better as it is only either open or closed, not adjustible. Also, the vent does do a good job of clearing the face shield, but does blow directly on my eyes, which was irritating. I loved the bucket system, easy with my heavy gloves. The optics were great and distortion free. The opening and locking mechanisms are easy to use and seem very secure. The fit for my head was just a bit smaller than my nolan, which left a sore spot at the upper area behind a typical hairline, but no big deal. October 4, 2015
Great helmet, if it is on sale. I purchased this helmet when it was on sale for $200 off. The fit is a little small, my chin almost rubs against the chin guard. I had to remove padding on the top/front to keep the helmet from leaving a mark. November 16, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Kurt W: $500 for a helmet is a lot, but this seemed to be rated very well, with the features I was looking for. Nov 23, 2015
robert p: I chose this for winter riding, because of numerous reviews saying that it was a really quiet helmet. I have an aria open face helmet but its to noisy when I ride without a windscreen and a modular is much warmer and pinlock system should eliminate fog. I have a shoei full face that I rode with many years but it is old and I like the idea of a flip up helmet. I always try to buy the best quality that I can afford because in the end your always happy with a quality product. Nov 20, 2015
Lacy B: What can I say. Schuberth makes a great helmet Nov 16, 2015
Alexander R: I always wanted this helmet. Great reputation and safety record. The sale price finally made it happen. Nov 14, 2015
James N: Really good reviews (your videos were AMAZING!). Good blend of what I wanted (comfort & quality) and safety ratings (DOT but not Snell). Kind of expensive, but I only have one head and I am kind of attached to it. Oct 30, 2015

D A: it was on sale, and Anthony rides with it personally. That's all the inspiration I need. :) Oct 13, 2015
Ken R: Great value but too big Oct 11, 2015
Vasco N: Good Price on the standard for hybrid open close brand Oct 4, 2015
david c: It was a good reduction on the price. I have been looking at them for a while. The videos sold me. I use to have a Nolan and this interior protection just looks better. I also like that they passed both the DOT and Eurpoean safety. It is supposed to be really quiet, but I'm kinda doubting it will be that much different. I also LOVE the racheting systems rather than a D Ring; I always ride with good gloves. I really like the modular aspect of the helmets. Sep 23, 2015
Henry M: Safety, quiet, and on sale. Sep 23, 2015
Dennis A: Best price found on this item. I have been searching for the best price for a month and this was the best. Sep 16, 2015

DANIEL B: Best Modular Helmet in the $500 price range Jul 7, 2015
William B: I found that the shorty helmet was too loud when travelling at speed. I read that this was a quiet helmet. I only hope its not too hot in the Florida summer. Jul 5, 2015
David T: All of the tremendous reviews and even the not so nice. New rider and I wanted a premium helmet for my brain. Jun 30, 2015

Stephen B: Have a C3pro and got this for 2nd passenger for the quailty of Schuberth. Jun 18, 2015
Benjamin L: Great helmet, Took a little while to size correctly. Love the modular aspect, makes taking it off and putting it on very easy. The internal sun visor is great, keeps my eyes completely shaded with no problems. Sometimes I can run just the visor with the shield up in front and keep my head cool. My one gripe is that the vents don't really seem to do any thing. I've tried literally every vent in every position and it doesn't effect air flow one bit. Jun 17, 2015
G. Michael M: Video on revzilla after compairing several modular helmets Jun 15, 2015
Adrian H: Great reviews. Jun 15, 2015
John L: safety, excellent sale price, comfort, craftsmanship, reputation. Jun 13, 2015
William P: One of the best modular helmets on the market. Great price on an older model. Jun 12, 2015
Steve S: Research & referrals, currently rock a Scorpion EXO400 in black & need a non-black modular for summer/city riding. Quite an investment but still seems like tough to beat at this sale price. Helps to have $10 coming back automatically with even more for future purchases. Jun 10, 2015
Clark C: I spoke w/a Gear Geek today. After explaining my head shape he recommended the Schuberth C3 (on sale) and the Shark Evoline ST model. Jun 10, 2015

Kang W: It looks good and it's a brand name. Especially, it's on sale. Never saw this low price on Schuberth C3 helmet Mar 28, 2015
Nathan T: This is my second C3. Most comfortable helmet I have worn. Very quiet with good ventilation options for keeping warm in winter and cool in the warmer months. Pinlock fog-free visor system performs flawlessly. Mar 28, 2015
Bart R: I"ve always wanted a Schuberth helmet. I've long since been a Vemar fan and was going to choose the carbon fiber flip up model with a Bluetooth system installed in it. The Schuberth is actually lighter than the all carbon Vemar and that was what made me go the extra mile with the cost involved to try this awesome helmet.
Can't wait to ride with it.
Mar 27, 2015
Bryan G: One of the best helmets around. Utra quiet and like the the flip up sun shield. Mar 25, 2015

Carlos A: is my headâ?¦ so for me is important to feel I will be protected Mar 20, 2015
JAMES Z: Needed new helmet,awesome price Mar 19, 2015
Eric B: I tried on the S3 at the motorcycle show and it was the only flip up that fit me. I currently wear an Arai Vector. I take a medium in the Arai, but went with a large Schuberth. It was still a little snug when new, but it breaks in just fine. Nice and solid feel around the skull. I'm not a big fan of the chinstrap, I prefer D rings. But whattaya gonna doâ?¦ Mar 19, 2015

Michael J: Because of the name and good reviews, but when I got it I did not like the fit, to closed in for me so I returned it, Great quality but not for me. Called Revzilla and they gave a return # and I returned the helmet. No problems what so ever, thank you Revzilla!! 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.

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

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

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

Mark H asked: I have in my cart the Shuberth C3 ($500.00) but I'm not sure about the size.
My head measures a shade under 58 so do I go with the large or medium?
Also, I wear glasses so is this a good choice or would you recommend something else.

David F: The Shuberth C3 helmet is an excellent choice. I've owned two so far and will most likely purchase another one when mine gets old or damaged.

I mostly wear a medium in other helmet brands and found that Schuberth's are true to size. However the forehead section of the helmet tends to cause some discomfort for a while until it's broken in. The forehead section tends to press against your forehead and leave a mark from the padding, but this eases up in time.

As for glasses they are the perfect types of helmets and will allow you to remove or wear your helmet without having to remove your glasses. You may have to readjust a little after putting it on but should not be a problem.

Jackie S: I have found that the sizing info is true to size. You don't want you helmet to be loose but if you are closer to 58 than 57 I would go with 58. I will sometimes wear my glasses on short trips, under 1 hour. If I wear longer than 1 hr it starts to hurt my head where the frame hits my head. Generally I don't like glasses when I ride because it messes up my peripheral vision and I don't want to get creamed by a car coming from the side. May 22, 2015

Richard l: Mark: First of all the measurement you have take is probably wrong. My advice to be absolutely sure of the correct size, find a local dealership that sells this helmet and try it on with the help of the dealer. Who knows he might even make you a deal! That aside the C-3 is probably the finest helmet I've ever owned! Bar none! No Fog and virtually no wind noise.

anthony m: I wear glasses under mine, no problem.

It's my second c3....my first was bit too small which made extended riding uncomfortable....my 2nd was a size larger. Still left a dent in my forehead but was much more comfortable.

Head shape also has much to do with fit.

Sorry I can't be of more help....uu really have to try it on.

Mark W: My head size is also 58 and I went with the large. The helmet fits me very well and I am happy with the purchase. As for the glasses, I tried putting on a pair of sunglasses and it's a pretty tight fit. You could always order it and try it on and return it if it's not compatible for you. Hope this helps.

Frederic S: I bought a large but had tried a C3 on at a dealership. It seemed tight at first but I based it on the fact the HJC I had was to loose. The helmet works well with glasses.

Daniel R: They run spot on in size. At first I thought the one I bought was too small, but after a few minutes the helmet adapts to your head like a memory foam mattress with silk lining. I like to wear sunglasses under my helmet and they fit well. May 21, 2015

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. It has been in hot, cold, dry and torrential rains for hours, always comfortable and never fogs with the pin shield in place. Nov 17, 2011

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

Harold Myers I: I have a C3 with the Schuberth (SCALA) comm system. The SENA (10 or 20) will fit this helmet just like almost any other helmet using the SENA mounting system (which puts the unit "external". You will get some wind noise from the unit as it disturbs the flow around the Helmet.

Sena does not make an "integrated" unit for any helmet that I know of.

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
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
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
Reply to cwo4usn Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

Jerrilyn J: we are using the Sena communication system and l have positioned the unit just behind the slider....don't know how it would work with the Scala....also there isn't much room for the speakers inside the helmet..... Sep 22, 2013
Reply to Jerrilyn Good answer? Yes (1) 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.

Keith B: My previous helmet was a shoei rf1100 in medium; snug fit, wore into a little less than snug fit. I bought the c3 in medium because i was just over the medium size but to little for a size up. The c3 was tight for the first few rides then wore into a comfortably snug fit. My only complaint about my c3 is that water spits on my face sometimes in heavy rain through the top of the visor. I would go with the medium, better snug than loose. Sep 18, 2015

Ernest R: Thanks guys.
Not that simple. The M is 56-57, and the L is 58-59cm. So it's a matter of going over or under. I've read posts saying that the Schuberth runs to size so that doesn't help.
I guess I'll take the advice of experts and not buy it unless I can try them on. Down Under finding one to try on isn't easy.

Jackie S: The helmet is great for upright riding. Can be a little hot in the summer but great in the winter. I have the Schuberth communication system. It is built in and very nice. The only negative is range. It is less than a side mounted unit. They have addressed that in the new helmet which has better range. The built in unit is costly but a very neat installation. I doubt you can get a side mounted unit to work well due to the helmet design. I like to listen to the radio so I would get the updated version with better range. This is my second C3 helmet as my last one was destroyed in an accident. I liked it so much I went out and got the same one again Oct 7, 2015

steve c: I also ride a HD Limited. The helmet is excellent for comfort and wind noise and the standard Harley speakers fit in the helmet comfortably without modification. The clamp on mike will not work at all. The shape of the bottom of the helmet does not allow you to use the clamp. I modified my clamp and used double stick tape to secure the mike and wire plug in block. Sep 15, 2015

Joseph T: the more upright the better, since the helmets vent on the top is a lifesaver for heat. I think the helmet can get pretty hot during the hot days of the summer but open the face shield a little and open the vent and it is about the same as any other closed faced helmet. If you put the entire face up its like having a half helmet on. Nov 10, 2015

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. Also from reviews I've read many have complained as to how close the chin section is to your face so there may not be very much space for the mic between the helmet and your mouth. Jun 24, 2014

Tom C: Can't say for sure, but I have a Sena fitted to mine. Mike is a bit of an issue, because you have to place it correctly in the helmet as you close the front. BTW, my mike is on the right, because the slider for the sunshield is on the left. Hope it helps. Jun 24, 2014

I have a Contour camera and have it mounted directly to my bikes using RAM mounts. I don't believe the stock Contour helmet mount will provide the angle you would need for a good sight line with the camera, you may need to look at other helmet mounts with more adjustment. That said, if you were to mount the Contour to this helmet you would need to mount it either behind or below the pivot point otherwise the camera would interfere with the front of the helmet flipping up.

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. Works 100% Here's the base I use: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/sena-smh-10-helmet-clamp-kit-earbuds-with-boom-and-wired-microphone Apr 14, 2012

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

William B: David, I also ride all year, and I commute every day. I also live in the Seattle area. I have a rain jacket that fits close to my neck, and I have only one or two occasions a year where water can get my dress shirt collar wet. In heavy rain which you can usually avoid if you watch the sky and pick your route, I wear a "Northface Wndstoppper" that climbers use. It also helps that I ride a BMW with an adjustable windshield and when moving the rain goes over the top of me. I have been riding in Seattle daily since 2006, and I have never found rain to be an issue.

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.

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.

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!

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 for
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.
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:

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.

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: Hi: How many shell sizes does the C3 have, and how are they spread among the helmet sizes.

TexasSoloRider: I had the same question (which helmets sizes are made from which shell). I noticed the website says there are 2 shell sizes, but it doesn't say which shells are used for the different helmet sizes. Apr 14, 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

Slooping60605: No, the HD is a hard wired system. At present on my 2011 RGU CVO there is bluetooth connectivity to the Garmin, but the Garmin is not controlled by the OEM hand controls. Jun 26, 2012

A shopper asked: I have a Scala G4/G9 mount I'm interested in adding to a C3, I think I can install it to the rear of the sun shield slider. Has anyone done this? And, no, I'm not interested in buying the SRC because I own the G4. Aug 10, 2015

Douglas L: I mounted my G9 to my C3 with the clip mount just behind the sun shield slider as you mentioned. Be cause of the sun shield slider, the mic boom comes up just a hair short of being directly in front of my mouth. Doesn't seem to affect the pick up of my voice at all. My previous helmet was an HJC with the slider on top of the helmet and the G9 fit beautifully. There is another issue I may try to solve by switching from the G9 clip mount to the adhesive mount. The "collar" on the bottom of the C3 (the piece that gets replaced with the SRC) does not seal completely because the clip is in the way. This probably leads to some noise entering the helmet that wouldn't happen if the collar seal wasn't displaced by the clip mount. Otherwise, everything works great! Hope this helps! -- Doug.

A shopper asked: how does the sizing compare between Schuberth C3 and Shoei RF1200? May 20, 2015

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. I have Mede three trips from ohio to California with it and I'm satisfied. Good luck choosing and be careful out there. May 20, 2015

Daniel D asked: Hi, does the C3 visor have UV protection? Does it offer the same protection as the C3 Pro? Thanks May 11, 2015

Friedrich P: I can't speak to the C3 Pro because I don't have one but the C3 does indeed have UV protection, meaning my glasses don't go dark with this helmet like they did with the HJC May 11, 2015

DAVID M asked: I currently use a Lazer Kestrel size XL which fits my 61 cm noggin just fine, but am looking for something quieter. Will the C3 be a good fit or will perhaps the S2 work better? Reading the various reviews it seems like the C3 will run a tad narrower than the Lazer. May 2, 2015
