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.

Excellent helmet..minor complaint XL C3 in Black Killer Helmet with one issue..pressure point on forhead after long day riding...can be fixed by ordering C3 Pro liner...I have 17 Helmets...This is by far the best one...I have the SRC system...I also have the small C3 Womens for my Girlfriend in grey w SRC April 10, 2014
Great overall This helmet is light, comfortable, good air flow and I realy like being able to open it up when I stop for gas, etc. I usually keep it on when I go into a store because it is so comfortable. April 9, 2014
High quality product but at a very high price Overall, this helmet is fantastic, which is what I'd expect for the price I paid for it. It does, however, have some downsides: the pinlock visor does not fit correctly on the shielf, so there is a slight fold in the corner preventing a perfect seal from occuring. Also, the helmet is louder than I had expected. While it is definitely quieter than my $150 helmet, I would still wear earplugs on long trips as the noise is still uncomfortable at high speeds. March 3, 2014
Nice features and quiet Since quiet was an important consideration, let me note an observation on noise. The helmet is both noisy and quiet. It is noisy about the ears and quiet about the neck and front. When I ride _more_ than a couple of miles ear plugs of the foam type are used. With those in, the helmet is quieter than my previous full face type helmets. However, when a couple of miles is all, such as a grocery run, then no ear protection is used and the noise about the ears is rather apparent but no worse than my other helmets. Since I usually have ear plugs in, not much of a deal. But it does explain why I read some reviews where noise was noted. About the fit. I was on the border line of sizing and went to the next larger as opposed to the recommendation of taking the next smaller size. Given that, the fit is quite snug. It is snug to the point that it is a bit difficult to put on or my ears are just a bit to big. Once on it fits well. It has a built in sun visor, however I prefer to wear sunglasses and there is plenty of room for them in this helmet. I am used to the full face helmets squeezing the temple area but the Schuberth does not. With the chin bar up, putting on sunglasses are very easy and no interference when closing the chin bar. February 3, 2014
Good Comfortable Head Protection This helmet is comfortable. I like the ratchet chin strap, easy to use, adjusts and secures in place with gloves on. The pinlock anti-fog works well; I wish I had another one when I ordered to practice putting it in place. The sun shield fogs a little when standing still, that’s not much of a problem for me though. RevZilla order was fast, I was surprised to receive it in a couple days, even with snow storms. By the time I received a tracking number it was already out for delivery. February 1, 2014
Comfortable, good vision, great features, well made. Great helmet in all regards. The only negative I've seen is that it may not lock without some due diligence. It may be easy to not get the visor down and locked if you don't give it a bit of a whack when you close it, but no big deal. It is quiet, comfortable and has a wide field of view. I put on the fog resistant lens, but found it a bit distractive and removed it...probably a functional piece in high humidity, cool climates. March 3, 2014
7-month owner very happy I have owned this helmet for a little over 7-months now. I have to say it is one of the best helmets I have ever had. The fit is still the same size as my head and not a dramatic change after it "breaks in." The padding on the cheeks are holding up to the daily rides to and from work. Even with the 1 degree weather, the helmet seals in the warmth. I feel if I replaced the pads, it would be a new helmet again. The sun visor and shield are good quality and haven't faltered yet. I have bumped the clear shield against something unfortunately, but came out without a scratch. The field of view through the shield is absolutely amazing. I have been able to turn my head just a tad to the left or right and I was able to see vehicles approaching from behind with ease. When driving next to other cars I always watch their tires to notice any sudden lane-change movements and this helmet really helps so I do not have to turn my head. The pin-lock system is still keeping me fog-free. The modular latch is still smooth as butter. Decided to lubricate all my parts since we have had rough, wet weather lately. The only thing that is breaking down is the helmet bag, but that is because I constantly have it stored in it where ever I go. 3rd party Bluetooth system without a problem, but recommend the Schuberth system as it is an exact fit. I have noticed the mic boom from the 3rd party kit has left a small area for noise to get through, but not too bad. Air flow is ok, but it may be because I have a windshield extended just above my helmet. A very happy and proud Schuberth owner. Whenever I had an issue or a question Schuberth North America had my back. Prompt email response or phone call when needed. A company like this is hard to find any more...besides Revzilla. ;) January 8, 2014
If you can afford it, this is the only helmet I'd recommend I've owned Shoei, Arai, and now Schuberth, and there really is no comparison. This is my first modular helmet and my first high-viz helmet. I got the orange version and it's brighter than most hunting gear. Unlike most of the other high-viz gear I own, I regularly get compliments on this helmet. It's light and fits according to the Schuberth sizing chart. All of the reviews and manufactuer information said this is a quiet helmet, and they're not kidding. After a few weeks of riding around and realizing just how quiet it is, I got a SRC so I could listen to the radio while riding. The flip down sun shield is perfect, as is the low-condensation inner visor. I wish I'd just gotten a Schuberth from the start instead of wasting my time with other brands. This really is the only way to go. I know it's expensive, but it's got all of the comfort and features you'd ever want. Fine German engineering, baby. February 3, 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

cwo4usn: I also wear Rx glasses. The fit of the C3 is tight, mostly to achieve that 84 db noise figure. I have to don and remove the helmet without my glasses on. In the helmet, my glasses slip to my ears without problem, and the helmet does not clamp the bows too tightly against my head. So far, the C3 has been fine for me with my glasses in place.

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. I would recommend following the Schuberth recommendations for sizing as a starting point. My C3 fits more snugly than the Bell did, but it is not uncomfortable at all to me. Sep 9, 2012

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

Russ: To get the best fit, I would suggest using the Schuberth sizing instructions. Measure your head at the widest part a few times (for accuracy), and then order per their chart. The helmet will, and should, fit slightly snug when new. Jul 23, 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. 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
Reply to Guideboat Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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.

A shopper asked: I have a Scala Rider g4 system. Will it attach to the side of this helmet?Does the slider get in the way? Thanks! Sep 21, 2013
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.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Stacy M: First and foremost - this is an incredible helmet; it's safe, it's comfortable, it's quiet and it's quality! Customer service is top notch! 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

Russ: I also have a Sena SMH-10 and have not yet found a satisfactory what to install it. It is not straight forward as on other helmets due to the way the neck collar attaches to the helmet, so beware that it may not fit as you hope. Jul 23, 2012

A shopper asked: Hello, can I use the hbc200 uclear communication system with the c3 helmet? Dec 26, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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. Or securing it to the chin strap. I don't recommend this because it limits your neck mobility. If possible have your dealer propose a solution and do the mount for you. Apr 2, 2013

TexasSoloRider: Don't know... but keep in mind that if you bought the C3 because it is so quiet, attaching any communication system on the outside will cause turbulence and noise. Jun 1, 2013

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.

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

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.
