Schuberth C3 Pro Helmet Videos

Schuberth C3 Pro Helmet

The Schuberth C3 Pro has been redesigned to improve on the original C3, which was already one of the quietest and most technologically advanced helmets ever produced.

The rear spoiler, which has been further optimized in extensive wind tunnel testing, turns the C3 Pro into a real sport helmet which also demonstrates outstanding aerodynamic properties at high speeds in excess of 100 mph. With its enhanced aeroacoustics of 82 dB(A) at 100 km/h the C3 Pro is one of the quietest helmets in the world. The C3 Pro also incorporates two integrated antennas for increased ranges and better FM radio reception – prepared for the fully integrated communication unit SRC-System. The inner lining, made of carefully selected materials such as COOLMAX, Interpower and Thermocool, has been extensively re-shaped and redesigned and sets new benchmarks with respect to comfort.

New or Updated Features:

  • Redesigned shell is more aerodynamic and provided more downforce at higher speeds with little buffeting
  • Interior helmet sound levels have been reduced to 82 dB(A) at 60 mph {C3 84 dB(A)}
  • Interior liner has been completely redesigned with fewer seams and a more universal, interior fit
  • Improved EPS with integrated antenna for SRC-System which improves radio and Bluetooth range
  • New micro-lock ratchet chin strap
  • Larger reflective panels on neckroll
  • Improved faceshield ratcheting
  • Integrated sun visor has a new look and improved quality

Acoustics:

A quiet helmet means active safety for the motorcyclist. This permits the rider to concentrate on riding – particularly at higher speeds. Many hours in the Schuberth acoustics wind tunnel have ensured that the C3 Pro is quiet. The comprehensive acoustics package with optimized helmet shell, wind deflector and ergonomic shape of the neck padding make the C3 Pro – at 82 dBA – one of the quietest helmets of all.

  • Acoustics package makes helmet quiet
  • Installation of a wind deflector enables the aeroacoustics and consequently the noise level to be improved still further.
  • Only 82dB(A) at 100 km per hour (with naked bikes)

Outer Shell:

The outer shell of the Schuberth C3 Pro is offered in two helmet shell sizes and combines an aerodynamically optimal shape with excellent protection. It is manufactured using Schuberth's typical compression molding process and thus permits great stability and a low weight.

  • Shell material: S.T.R.O.N.G. fiber
  • Helmet shell technology from SCHUBERTH permits low weight
  • Glass fiber with a special resin added is compressed in a vacuum at high pressure to form a helmet shell which is exceptionally sturdy
  • Perfected aerodynamics for higher speeds
  • Upward lift = 0!
  • Directionally stable
  • No oscillatory tendency
  • No buffeting
  • Spoiler integrated into the helmet shell

SRC-System Ready:

The C3 Pro is by default equipped to accommodate the SCHUBERTH SRC-System C3 Pro (sold separately). To guarantee ideal radio reception for you, the C3 Pro is already equipped with two integrated antennas to boost reception and a Bluetooth connection.

  • Optimum reception at all times
  • Bluetooth antenna for wireless mobile, GPS and intercom connections to other SRC-System owners
  • FM and Bluetooth antennas integrated into the helmet for optimum reception

EPS:

The helmet shell of special EPS foam is modular in design to ensure optimal shock absorption. This complex segmentation guarantees enhanced force absorption and distribution and maximum safety.

  • Made of specially optimized EPS foam
  • Complex multizone foaming allows optimal shock absorption

Inner Lining:

A special inner lining of the C3 Pro which was developed according to the innovative Comfort Fit concept ensures that the helmet fits comfortably and securely in all situations. The combination of carefully selected COOLMAX and Thermocool materials and the additional use of Interpower coatings also make the inner lining a highly-effective moisture removal and cooling system.

  • COOLMAX pad system, completely removable and washable (hand wash, 30°C)
  • Optimized fit
  • Variable for effective ventilation
  • Adjustable for summer/winter
  • Allergen-free
  • Antibacterial
  • Removable comfort cheek pads and head band pads

Ventilation:

The C3 Pro is equipped with a further development of the proven C3 ventilation system. Thanks to the new design of the ventilation elements, the supply of fresh air is increased by up to 60%. The combination of multipath channels in the EPS foam shell and the head/chin/mouth ventilation  ensure that fresh air is distributed effectively over the entire head area.

A.R.O.S. and Neck Strap:

The Anti-Roll-Off System (A.R.O.S.) especially developed by SCHUBERTH is provided as a safety feature in every SCHUBERTH motorcycle helmet. It ensures that 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 throat of the rider is minimized due to the small angle of tilt
  • The consequences of the helmet coming into contact with the chest as the result of an accident are reduced
  • Precise setting of the chinstrap length through adjustment on both sides
  • Micro-lock ratchet lock

Face Shield:

The EasyChange visor mechanism makes changing visors extremely quick and simple without use of tools.

  • City position offers maximum ventilation while traveling at slower speeds
  • Pinlock visor prevents shield from fogging

Schuberth C3 Pro Helmet 4.7 5 134 134
Real nice helmet The C3pro helmet is everything it is advertised to be. Quiet. Comfortable. Loaded with features. I couldn't be happier with the purchase. After owning a number of premium helmets, I consider this to be the very best -even at such a high price. July 14, 2014
Optional communications system is outstanding Excellent helmet, very quiet. Highly recommend that you watch video, it does a good job of explaining features. Follow instructions on fitment of helmet. July 14, 2014
OMG - so many negatives where do I begin C3 Pro - Forehead pressure, wind noise, choking clamp, urban position, adhesive odor. Just returned from a 5 day trip and am feeling very stupid for purchasing an $800 helmet. Always have to wear ear plugs for wind noise so hence the reason for a new helmet. Sounded like Schuberth had it figured out with the technology they used. Sad to say my old Helmet, different brand, is better. Several locking positions on the visor the 1st being about a 1/4" instead if over an 1" that blows wind in you eyes, If it' so great then it should be 100% satisfaction guaranteed. Schuberth use real riders to test your helmets. Happy to sell it if anyone interested size SM. 30% discount. July 7, 2014
Not as quiet as my old helmet I have been waiting to review this helmet, I've had it for a couple months now and worn it every day to commute and on a long group ride. I was hoping to be able to ditch the ear plugs since this is supposed to be a quiet helmet but frankly my old Shoei RF-1000 had much less wind noise under the same circumstances than the C3 Pro. It seems to me there is a lot of noise around the face shield that the “turbulators” are supposed to help control but they seem to make things worse. Like I said I’m comparing this to the Shoei RF-1000 under the same ride set up so I don’t think that the type of bike or riding position play much of a factor. I’ve ridden wearing both helmets with and without ear plugs. One of the other things that bothers me (since I commute in all kinds of weather) is the lack of an option to slightly crack the face shield. The ‘City position offers maximum ventilation while traveling at slower speeds’ is an option that works well ‘at slower speeds’ but even at a stop light if it is raining you will able to get a nice drink of water. The ‘Pinlock visor prevents shield from fogging’ works as well as any Pinlock insert can be expected but in more extreme conditions will be outmatched by the weather. Overall I like this helmet. It is my first modular so I don’t have anything to compare with on that level. It doesn’t seem as light as my RF-1000 but that doesn’t bother me. I like the drop down sun screen but just about everyone has one of those now. I also like the fact that I can see much more than on my RF-1000. Without being able to compare this to other modular helmets I can’t say I would recommend this helmet. I certainly wouldn’t recommend it over other full face helmets I have had for the price. July 7, 2014
Not worth it Although self-titled and often associated with BMW motorcycles, this helmet simply doesn't deliver the overall experience one would expect from the price. It has some nice features, like a built-in sunshade and removable liner, but they're not very *durable*. In the course of owning 2 helmets, I broke the sunshade mechanism twice. I also broke both of the zippers that attach the internal liner to the chin strap. Still, the worst aspect of this helmet is the lack of ventilation. There are two small vents near the forehead, and a totally inadequate vent at the nose. These are supposed to combine to make air flow through the helmet, but they don't work. After putting up with this helmet in hot summer temps for way too long, I gave up and bought an Arai XD4. Yes, it's not a flip-up, but I've given up on flip-ups. Maybe you can get better results with the Nolan. June 29, 2014
C3 Pro Helmet Tried on a C3 and then a C3 Pro and it was night and day. The C3 Pro is plush compared to the C3. Had a hot spot on my forehead for a while but that has gone away. Incredibly light and quiet, no more earplugs needed. I wore a Shoei RF-1100 before the C3 Pro and the C3 Pro is quieter. C3 Pro is one of those items you get what you pay for, a quality product from a quality company. June 26, 2014
Love at first ride I can't compare improvements on this helmet compared to the C3, because I never owned one. This is my first Schuberth purchase and I am very sure its not my last. I loved this helmet from the first time I put it on. The fit is spot on, seems to be made for narrow and long head shapes. Haven't had any discomfort in the forehead region as I understand the C3 had a problem with. It ventilates better then I expected, with no fogging at all. Once the visor is down completely, the noise cancelling properties are amazing. It almost feels as if I am in a car. The best feature in my opinion is the aerodynamics. Even at higher speeds, I was amazed just how steady the helmet kept my head with no buffeting at all. Just make sure to check your speed frequently when riding on the interstate, as you will be going much faster then you think. My only gripe would be the price. However if you want the best, you will not regret purchasing this helmet June 3, 2014
Very good helmet but it should be for the price. I am a year round Seattle commuter and purchased this helmet for that use. I wanted a modular helmet that meets at least two major safety standards and this one does (three I think including two European standards). I've put several thousand commuter miles on this helmet and one multi-day trip. On the good, the helmet is fairly light, has tremendous vision and ventilates extremely well. The liner is very comfortable, is wearing pretty well and for my head at least, the fit is uniform and even. No hot spots even after being on for several hours. The helmet tends to ride more forward than others I've owned. It isn't bad, just a difference in fit. The chin bar mechanism is secure and easy to use even with heavy gloves. The built in sun visor is awesome. I never wear sunglasses any more while riding. I like the ratcheting chin strap too. The visor mechanism is positive and secure. Everything works exactly as advertised. On the bad, I don't have any major complaints. The helmet is loud compared to others I've owned but I'm not sure that's specific to this helmet or if its characteristic of modulars as this is the first I've owned. This is a minor problem for me as I always wear earplugs or buds. The pinlock visor is as good as any and because the helmet ventilates so well it probably works better. When the visor is sealed and the chin vent is open its almost like there's a fan running inside. The so called 'urban' visor setting is my least favorite aspect of this helmet. I think it cracks too wide and if it's raining it does nothing to keep water out which then runs down the inside of the visor. When the visor is sealed I've never had water find it's way in. Overall I like this helmet better than any I've ever owned. It's expensive but for me at least, justifiable because it fits me so well and works as well as it does. July 12, 2014

Robert F: Gear Patrol said that this was one of the best helmets in the world. Loved the quietness and modular design. Jul 16, 2014
Kristofer S: Superior Schuberth design and engineering led me to two choices: the S2 or C3Pro. C3Pro won out because it has better airflow (9L v. 8L) and was rated quieter than its full-face S2 cousin (82dBA v. 85dBA at ~60mph). Tried it on - comfort is outstanding. Ceramic materials make the inside noticeably cooler and the flip-up chin feature is so well designed it can only be a plus. Considering it's a premium helmet in the high price range, the S2/C3Pro price difference was worth the upgrade. Jul 8, 2014

Over the years I've spent thousands on "nice" helmets with "cool" graphics. I hated to admit it but she was right. The helmet weight is super light, no neck strain. Optics perfect. The Integrated Bluetooth in the neck role is seamless. sound quality, range, durability all top notch. Oh yeah, voice activated too, Sep 2, 2013
Orlando T: I've always wanted a modular helmet after many years of wearing a full face Arai. I'm retiring the Quantum II after many years of good use and a need something quieter. In addition the C3 Pro has apparently remedied the forehead discomfort so I'm going to give it a go. The C3 Pro has mostly stellar reviews so I'm ready to give it a try. Aug 19, 2013

Jerry E asked: I really want to get the C3 Pro but a communicator is a must for me and after looking into the Schuberth SRC system I do not think that I would want it. I would prefer the Sena SMH10R. Would it be possible to run the mic wire on the SMH10R in a way that it would work without problem with the front in the down position, but would not interfere or wear the wire or helmet when flipping the front up and down? RevZilla, I am hoping you will reply to this as I doubt many, if any, people have tried this, and you have the products available to test this. Thank you. May 24, 2014

Shawn H: Hi Jerry,

I recently received my C3 Pro with the intent on hooking my Cardo Scala Rider G9X.

The sliding mechanism for the internal visor is in the approximate location where any aftermarket bluetooth system would connect. Because I would have to mount the G9 farther back on the helmet, the microphone wouldn't reach properly. I can only assume you'd run into the same problem with the Sena system.

I opted to send my helmet to J&M audio so they could install an integral speaker system. I preferred to go with a wired system so I can do very long, multi-day rides without worrying about charging bluetooth system batteries. This was not a cheap solution.

If I were going to use a bluetooth system, I think the Schuberth neck roll system (made by the same people who make my G9X system) would work very well. Also, not a very cheap solution.

I plan to leave the G9X on my Scorpion helmet and use it for shorter rides and save the Schuberth for the very long Iron Butt type rides.

Best of luck!

CHRIS G: I have C3 Pro with SMH10R. I am using flexible boom mike now and it works quite well. Wiring under lining was pretty straightforward and fits well. Battery fits nicely at rear of helmet. Need to take a bit of care when lowering the lid but it is easy. If using the wired mic, there is not really a way to have it permanently live directly in front of your mouth on the inside of the flip down lid. However, you can have the mic sit on the the lower cheek pad, right above the chin strap. This should put it at the corner of your mouth and it should work well.

Other advice is to test position of control unit with the helmet on so you know where your reach is and where your hand wants to hit when controlling the unit.

Please let me know if you need any other information. Cheers.

Colin D: I use the SMH-10, it has better range and battery life than the SMH10R, in my experience; even though it has a little more bulk. It mounts up with the adhesive with no issues. The Universal model (item: 839075) has the detached boom mic which attaches inside the helmet behind the left cheek pad with no issues and does not interfere with the chinbar and allows you to bend the mic to your lips for the best sound transmission. I also have the model for earbuds, as I have BigEar in-ear earspeakers, but the provided speakers will mount in the helmet with no issues. I mounted them in my girlfriends C3 Pro. Hope this helps!

A shopper asked: I'm interested in buying one of the C3 pro. But I read the SHARP rating of this helmet, and felt uncomfortable with the result. Does it mean that this helmet is not up to their standard, or the testing methods are somehow not suitable? Jan 27, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
Donald M: Keep in mind that SHARP ratings are only applicable to helmets sold in the UK. The C3 Pro sold there differs from the DOT certified one sold here. That being said, the rating was not bad: it was 3 stars with the lowest score for side of the helmet impacts, and even there it was acceptable. The only 5 star system helmet they tested was the Shark Evoline (again, the European model) and that had a rating for the chin bar detaching that was significantly worse than the C3, so nothings perfect. Bottom line is that the C3 Pro is the best helmet I've worn in the 46 years I've been riding. Jan 29, 2014

Jorge Q: I was too a little bit concerned about the investment, I even got the first helmet and it was a size to small, so I returned it and got the next size up... BEST HELMET EVER!!! Man it is a good investment. The pinlock works, the vision on the shields is great (both the outside and the sunshield), noise is totally different than other helmets, and anti roll works (tried to roll the helmet with my hands and nothing), the strap system is awesome... Man I love it. Jan 31, 2014

Alex S: In investigated this and was told that helmets that have the folding chin protector cannot be granted the highest safety categories due to concerns regarding the lesser integrity of the hinge and need for metal parts in the hinge area. Having said this, the C3 pro seemed of top notch quality. You just need a long forehead for it to fit properly. Feb 28, 2014

Robert O: I'm not familiar with the Sharp rating. Simply put, the C3 Pro is the quietest, best ventilated and most comfortable helmet I've ever owned - - and I say this as a formerly devoted Arai customer. Jan 30, 2014

A shopper asked: Will the Scala Rider G9 fit on the Schuberth C3 Pro?

It seems that the slide for the internal sun visor on the helmet would block the fit of this unit as it is designed for the left side of the helmet.

Terry L: I own both the Schuber C3 Pro Helmet and a Scala G9 head set. My Scala G9 unit is mounted on my Shark helmet and I have a Schuber com sys on my C3 Pro Helmet. The G9 head set has a long boom mike and could be mounted aft of the internal Sunvisor slide. but would probably get in the way of the boom when you go to lower the visor. The Scala would also have to be mounted using the adhesive back mount as opposed to the clip mount.

Hope this is helpful.

A shopper asked: is the pinlock antifog device meant to be installed and left on there for use fulltime? or is it something meant to be installed/uninstalled as needed? Obviously I have never used one. Mar 5, 2013

Strongbow: I leave the pinlock lens on all the time. You never know when you are going to experience a sudden change in temperature ( for eg. a heavy downpour and a sunny stretch of road ahead. )

I do not think there is a downside to leaving it on.
Since we cant forsee the future(weather), its better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
You can also have fun breathing heavily and just see how it is not fogging up! AMAZING!

RevZilla: The Pinlock system is used to keep the shield from fogging. Since both the lens and shield are clear, it is fine to keep the Pinlock lens in place all the time. Also, consider that the Pinlock lens is somewhat fragile and overhandling can cause scratches and dents. It is best to leave the Pinlock lens in place all the time. Mar 7, 2013

Dorky: you set it and forget it, there is a silicone seal between the inside of the visor shield and the pinlock antifog visor to create an air space in between the two visors to prevent fogging, similar to a vacuum window pane. you only take the pinlock visor out if the the seals are already worn out and ready for replacement, Apr 11, 2013

A shopper asked: Has anyone purchased a C3 or C3Pro in matte black finish? If so, how's the finish holding up and is it as easy to maintain as a gloss black finish? I've read mixed reviews on the longevity of the matte black finish (chipping, streaking, etc.). Thanks. Nov 10, 2013

Brian J: My matte black C3Pro's finish is holding up very well after ~6000mi of active touring. Just wipe bag and store. I chose the helmet because of its reputation as a rock-solid performer with light weight and good acoustics. but am pleasantly surprised by the finish's ability to resist abrasion. My Nolan and Scorpion helmets are also matte black but their finishes showed much more wear by this point. All faired much better than any of my gloss-finish lids (especially the Shoe's) and that's why I switched. Nov 13, 2013

A shopper asked: Do C3 cheek pads and lining fit the C3PRO model? Mar 17, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
RevZilla: They will fit, however, you would not want to use the cheek pads and liner of a C3 on a C3Pro, considering those were some of the things that they improved upon on the new model. Not only have they been reshaped for a more comfortable fit, but they are more plush; have a new foam with a slight memory to it; Coolmax material, which will keep your face from getting clammy; and a coating that will keep them fresh and bacteria free.

RevZilla: Currently the replacement cheekpads for the C3 Pro are not available, as they are due out this summer. From the information that we have at the moment, our understanding is that each pad will be offered in a "Narrow" or thinner version. The actual size/dimensions are not available at this time though, so we would recommend checking back in the summer as we should have more information at that point. May 14, 2013

A shopper asked: Does the C3PRO come with a clear lense with pinlock adapter only? I want a tinted lense as well. Mar 14, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Robert W: Yes, clear lens with Pinlock adapter. What is great about the C3PRO is the integrated drop down tinted lens within the visor. I have always ridden sport bikes with Shoei full face helmets & tinted lens. But the clear lens eliminates the need to change out the lens at night (grounds for stopping a motorcyclist in some states). The internal drop down tinted lens within the visor can be lifted out of the way at night. Mar 17, 2014

Colin D: The tinted sunshade is internal, it lowers and raises via a slider on the lower left hand side of the helmet. In my opinion, this is better than a dark or tinted visor only as there is no need to change anything, it is available on demand and works excellently. If you are at all concerned with the operation/function of such an internal visor I recommend trying one on first. Mar 14, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Daniel P: The C3 Pro's sun visor stays where you decided to put it. You adjust it with a slider on the lower left edge of the helmet. It is a very solid design that allows the visor to be positioned anywhere in its range of movement and left there. I have logged many hours at high speed (Track Speed) with the visor retracted, half out, or all the way down. As a whole I am really glad I spent the money on this helmet, its head and shoulders above the competition. Feb 24, 2014

Stephen F: Yes it can be , although I don't do this.
Although I don't find it a problem, I think it could actually help if it was able to drop down slightly further than it does. I cant imagine I would want it in anything but the fully down position but I realize that this can be a personal preference.

Algis P: Hi,

Go with the bigger size. I was a half size too and I went with the large. Helmet is awesome you will be so happy with it. Fits a little snug at first but after a few good rides it loosen up a bit. Built in sun visor is so good! I keep my sunglasses in my saddle bags until I park the bike. Trust me you will be very happy with this helmet.

If by some reason its too big Revzilla is awesome, they will take it back and send you the other size.

Ride safe

Bill W: That's a tough question.......so, did you try on both size helmets at the dealership? How did they feel and how much movement was there with both? It's a tough call to make, but they way your new helmet fits when you take it out of the box will be different than the way it fits a month from now. Snug is better when new.........It's a tough choice because you don't want to make a mistake with such an expensive helmet.

Good Luck.

Sekhar V asked: I tried on this helmet earlier today in a Large and a Medium. The medium felt quite snug to the point where I thought it might be uncomfortable to wear over long periods. The Large felt good but I could feel a very slight 'wiggle'. I just measured myself and I came in at approx. 21.25 - 21.5 inches / 54.5 cm. What do you advise with regards to the sizing of this product? Jan 20, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Stephen F: I based my sizing on the chart provided on RevZilla. When I originally started using the helmet I was concerned that it was going to be too tight for me. I felt a good amount of pressure on my cheekbone area. I use my motorcycle as my sole form of transport so after doing numerous 150 mile per day rides I can tell you that the helmet has not been uncomfortable. The tightness on the cheeks has loosened to a snug fit. When I turn my head , side to side, it feels like the helmet is part of my body, there's no looseness and no wobble or movement at most any speed that I have traveled at, to this point. I like that.
I have used my old pot to do some short rides to the gym so that I don't put more sweat than necessary on the Schuberth. I feel stupid having taken the chance of using such an ill fitting helmet prior to purchasing the Schuberth.
Looking at your measurements versus the sizing chart it shows you as needing a SM. Based on that recommendation I would certainly not go larger than the M. I don't know if you have any desire to have cell service or the ability to listen to music while you are riding. If you do, I recommend the headset. It works great!

Randy L C: Hello Sekhar,

If your head size is what you put in this note, you should probably be in a 'small'. My head is 58 cm I'm wearing a large and it is very comfortable for all day rides. I also have a Schuberth S2 in a large it is borderline to big. Look at Schuberths sizing chart it seems to be pretty accurate. Remember the padding will break in, if it is a little loose now it will be a 'lot' loose after a few rides. Hope this helps.

Joseph D: I purchased this helmet last year, I have a 54 cm head, I have the medium. The helmet will form a bit after being worn for a while, I do still get the hot spot on my forehead but it takes several hours before it bothers me. You can always swap out the internals to customize the shape a little if you find it doesn't form itself after a while. Having a helmet that's even a little loose is never a good idea. Jan 25, 2014

Bryan G: I would definitely get the smaller, snug size. I've had two Schuberths. The padding will adjust to your head - a snug helmet will feel just right after a few weeks of frequent use - it's worth the intitial discomfort because the bigger one will feel floppy and less protective with time.

Denny R: If it is too snug up in the middle of your forehead go with the larger size. While the will break in some the Schuberths stay more true to size than any othe high end helmet I own. I believe they offer different cheek pads if the issue is down on your face. Jan 24, 2014

A shopper asked: What helmets have a similar fit to the C3 Pro? I'm having a hard time finding dealers that carry Schuberth (Toronto) so I can test but want to make sure the helmet fits my head shape. For reference, I used to own a Reevu and that fit my very comfortably. Aug 13, 2013

Michael G: I'd have to defer to the Revzilla support team on that one. They were able to describe the expected fit to me accurately, and the sizing guide was spot-on. I purchased the helmet knowing that I could return it if it didn't fit (be sure not to use the helmet or remove any labels, e.g., be sure to follow Revzilla guidelines on ensuring return-ability!!

I tried a C3, it was too small around the chin for me (long oval). I returned it and got a full refund from Revzilla. I then ordered the C3 Pro and it fit me very well. I purchased the custom bluetooth neck roll for it right after that, and while the neck roll fits slightly different, it broke in nicely and I am hooked to that functionality (perfect with an iPhone)

Good luck!!

Robert H: I don't know of any that have a similar fit but prior to the C3 Pro I had a Shoei RF-1100 in a large so I ordered the Pro in a large. It was by far too small. I simply packed it back up, called RevZilla and had an XL in just a couple of days. Buy from RevZilla with confidence that if it doesn't fit they will replace it for free. There was no re-stocking fee, nothing.

The XL has quite a large shell. The pads fit my head perfectly and I haven't had a problem with it. I've been riding with it since April, averaging 3 days a week to work and back (2 hour round trip). It's very comfortable, has decent air flow and is quiet. Compared to the RF-1100 it's like a whisper.

Mark E M: Hello: My name is Mark Miller. I received your inquiry from RevZilla since I bought a Schuberth C3Pro from them last Feb. or Mar. I can't tell you anything about how it sizes compared to any other helmet but I'll gladly tell you my experience. I first bought a regular C3 before I bought my bike (long story). I bought a medium and It seemed to fit beautifully. Then, before I actually used it on a bike, they came out with the C3Pro. Watching the video I decided to trade my regular C3 for the C3Pro. I ordered it in a medium as well. When it arrived, I discovered it was too small. Thanks to RevZilla's return policy I immediately traded it in for a large. I have never regretted it. It couldn't fit better I don't believe. After I put it on I forget it's there. I have worn it for the best part of 8 or 9 hours over the course of a 12 hour ride and it still feels great. Living in GA I have had no trouble with the heat. At less than freeway speeds I leave the visor up with the sunshades down and that keeps the wind out of my eyes just fine. When I'm on the freeway I put the visor down but not quite all the way. The ratchet mechanism on the visor works very well for that. I have never had the wind close it for me. I know this doesn't answer you main question and I apologize for that. I also wish you luck with your investigation. It is a big investment so rates all the 'due diligence' you can give it. I love mine for whatever that's worth to you. Take care. Thanks for the opportunity to share with you one of the better decisions I've made in my life. Sincerely; Mark Miller Aug 19, 2013

Bill W: I've had my C3 Pro for about a week and just returned home from a 1,200 mile trip. All I can say is that for me, the C3 Pro is the most incredible helmet I've ever worn. I wear custom molded earplugs with speakers and I can enjoy music at all speeds.

I ride an R1200GS and it's interesting to note, that while sitting behind my Vstream windshield in the high position, some wind and buffeting noise is there. When I bring the windshield to the lowest position, wind and buffeting noise is greatly reduced. When I stand on the pegs to stretch, wind and buffeting noise is totally gone!

A shopper asked: I've read people's comments saying modular helmets are, by their nature, noisier than solid/non-modular full face helmets. But, all the literature on the C3 touts its low noise levels. Are these low levels low relative to other modular helmets, or all helmets?

scott k: I have never used the particular Arai helmet that you are asking about so sorry no comment there. I can tell that I have ridden for almost 4 decades in helmets and this is my first Schuberth and it is amazing. Amazingly comfortable, quiet, and the Bluetooth is a wonderful upgrade then having that cord always attracted. This helmet is seriously quiet and I doubt that this Arai is as quiet and nice. Anyway, this is my first customer opinion question that I have ever taken the time to be involved with and answer just because I love this c3 helmet.

Thomas G: My Schuberth C3 PRO is not as quiet as my old Arai Signet GT, but just slightly louder. If you open the chin vent with no wind screen on the bike it just ROARS. With a wind screen on the bike the Schuberth is only slightly louder when opening the chin vent, odd but true.

There are many things I like about Schuberth, you asked about noise.

Sean M: I have a couple RX-Qs, which are great, as well as a C3 and C3 Pro. They are all about equally quiet. I wear ear plugs. Cheapest and best way to reduce wind noise. C3's built in sun visor is nice when riding in bright and dark conditions. That and other features make C3 a better long-distance touring helmet than RX-Q. Oct 9, 2013

Adrian G: I've had many street and dirt helmets in the last 30 years, and I've mostly worn Arai. My last street helmet was the Arai Corsair V. Six months ago I purchased the Schuberth C3 Pro and it is, by far, the quietest helmet I have ever owned. Oct 10, 2013

A S asked: I tried prior model C3 (not pro version) and fits ok on the top part of the head and front head but to tight on jaw. I understand that C3 pro has available narrow cheek pads. Are this cheek pads to solve this problem?
If so, please confirm if you can ship the helmet with narrow pads with or without additional cost.
thanks

Joseph R: The C3 Pro is more of a long oval shape than the C3. If the C3 is comfortable for you, you might not like the Pro version. Why not try replacing the cheek pads in the C3? Something else to consider, the cheek pads will break in over time. You might allow the C3 to break in for a while before you do anything to it. Jul 15, 2014

A S: Thanks Joseph,
you mean that if C3 was to tight on my cheek and jaws, the C3 pro will be worst?
thanks in advance for your response
Gilberto Jul 15, 2014
David B: If you bought a small or medium helmet,you can order the cheek pads for a large helmet separately. These are thinner and will give you more cheek room. I had the same problem as you and this solved my fit problem. Jul 15, 2014

A S: thanks David. I did not explained the whole thing yesterday. sorry for that. I don't have the helmet yet. I will like to purchase an C3 Pro Size XL and Hi Viz y light green if posible and will like the thinest or narrower cheek pads available.
Can you assist me with this purchase?
thanks

Clarence T: I have found the C3 pro fit to have loosened up just right after a few days of break in. Mine was tight in the forehead when brand new. Best helmet to date. Good ventilation in Phoenix summer heat. Good quality sturdy components.

I did return the speakers and mic. Poor quality sound in my opinion for music. The speakers are okay for cell phone and bike to bike however. I used the refund for SHURE 535 ear buds that I wear in the C3 pro with all day comfort. I have a concert in the helmet quality music with this quiet design helmet.

Mark E M: Hello: My name is Mark and I have been asked to reply to your question since I have a C3 Pro helmet and have had for over a year. To answer your question, the bluetooth communicator is a separate item. What is built into the helmet is an antenna. If you pop for the Schuberth communicator, it connects to the antenna. It is another buncha $. So, it is a heluvan investment. Overall, I'm very happy with the setup. (I have both.) The helmet is the most comfortable I've ever worn. I love the fact that the communicator is built into the neck roll, replacing the one that came with the helmet so there is nothing hanging off the side. I've also found it easy to operate with gloves on. Having said that, if I had to do it all over again I would not have bought the communicator. I have a new RT with the audio system and I found out that I can't have the radio playing and the navigator talking to me at the same time. That's a disappointment especially considering what it cost. The helmet itself is everything they claim IMO. I love it. I hope I have answered your question and it helps. Jul 16, 2014

LARRY E: I wear the c3 pro and love it. Helmets are very subjective to individual riders. I have a round to round oval shaped head. The c3 fits me well. If you are more of an oval shape it will not work as well for you. Watch the videos on this site about dozing and shapes. There are several good videos here and YouTube to help you determine your shape. The c3 is everything schuberth advertises it to be. Good luck, and safe riding.
See you out there

scott k: I love the helmet. One of the major elements is that it is a very quiet helmet. I do not think that a exterior speaker system is the way to go. I have the internal speakers Bluetooth no wires from the bike into th helmet. It's a beautiful thing. Jun 18, 2014

A shopper asked: I have pre-ordered the Sena 20s communication system but like this helmet. Will the Sena 20s fit on this Shuberth C3 Pro helmet and function? If so are you able to use the wired mike instead of the boom? Or must you use the Shuberth C3 Pro SRC communication system with this helmet? If so, how does it compare to the Sena 20s which has the 4.0 Bluetooth and some nice vox commands? May 20, 2014

Colin D: You can use other manufacturers Comms. I have Sena, but you need to use the boom, as Richard states. The wired mic won't work if you plan to lift the chinbar. You will have to use the adhesive mount due to the way the neck roll covers the EPS liner and the shell. You can get the wires to feed through but the clamp is too big and will compromise the neck roll. The adhesive mount is very secure, I have mounted two Sena units on two C3 Pro's and have experienced no issues. Removing the neck roll is a little tricky the first time, after you figure it out, it is quick and easy and goes right back on! ENJOY! Hope this helps. C Jul 2, 2014

Richard W: It will fit and you can use the boom mic that fits inside the cheek pad
It's very easy to fit - you'll need to use the adhesive pad to attach the sena rather than the clamp

Matthew H asked: I just received my C3 Pro and I have a question on sizing. I measured at 59.4 almost 59.5 and from all the reviews and QA's I read it suggested I order the XL. Now I cannot tell if the XL is too big or not. There seems to be a little wiggle room in it. I cant fit any fingers in the front or sides. I can sneak some fingers into the back of the helmet but from the manual it seems there should be room at the bottom back of the helmet. The helmet is comfortable as can be though!! Is this helmet too big? Any insights would be helpful because I would hate to spend this amount of money only to find out weeks from now, it is too big. May 7, 2014

scott k: Hey,
I bought a c3 pro last year about this time and I was between a medium and a large. I ended up ordering both and tried them on and the truth was that either one would fit and this just confused me more. I ended up going with the large and have no regrets. To my mind the lining has not compressed really at all and the helmet fits almost identical as it did when I first got it. So I can not tell you how it will fit in 3 or 5 or 10 years but I am happy after one. I hope this helps .scott

Bandit1jono: Hi there,
personally i think that type of helmet depends on the rider, i have a mate that rides a daytona 675r that loves the modular helmet, just because it suits his style and being able to flip up the face and chat while stopped or get the extra breeze...
myself, i prefer the standard full face helmets, i also rode an r1 for some time and i preffered the slightly quieter helmet because of long highway trips and after a reasonably serious crash which resulted in a big blow to the jaw area i dont feel too comfortable with something that isn'r 100% fixed into position if you know what i mean.
but yeah, in the end it totally depends on the buyer and what look they like, what sort of comfort and convenience they're after. make sure you try one on first, my friend had almost convinced me but as soon as i put one on it turned me off completely but others swear by them...

RevZilla: The C3 could accommodate an SMH-5 or 10. You will likely need to use its adhesive mount as the internal sun shield mechanism would interfere with clamp mount placement. The Schuberth C3 Pro SRC System is also available, and was designed specifically for the C3 Pro. Feb 27, 2013
