Schuberth C3 Pro Hi Vis Helmet

The Rolls Royce of motorcycle helmets, the Schuberth C3 Pro has been designed to improve on the original C3, which was already one of the quietest and most technologically advanced helmets to date. The rear spoiler, which has been optimized during extensive wind tunnel testing, turns the C3 Pro into a real sport helmet, demonstrating 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 is also prepared to accept the integrated Schuberth SRC System, the C3 Pro also incorporates two integrated antennas for increased Bluetooth range and better FM radio reception. The inner lining is made of carefully selected materials such as COOLMAX, Interpower and Thermocool and has been extensively re-shaped and redesigned setting high benchmarks with respect to comfort.

Features:

  • The shell is aerodynamically tuned, providing more downforce and reducing buffeting
  • Interior helmet sound levels have been reduced to 82 dB(A) at 60 mph {C3 84 dB(A)}
  • Interior liner has been designed with fewer seams and a more universal interior fit
  • Improved EPS with integrated antennas for SRC-System which improves radio and Bluetooth range
  • Micro-lock ratchet chin strap
  • Large reflective panels on neckroll
  • Improved faceshield ratchet mechanism
  • Integrated sun visor

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 as quiet as Schuberth could make it. 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 on the market.

  • Acoustics package makes helmet quiet
  • Installation of a wind deflector further improves aeroacoustics
  • 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 equipped to accommodate the SCHUBERTH SRC-System C3 Pro (sold separately). To guarantee ideal radio reception, the C3 Pro is already equipped with two integrated antennas to boost FM and Bluetooth reception.

  • Optimum reception at all times
  • FM and Bluetooth antennas integrated into the helmet for optimum reception

EPS:

The EPS foam liner is modular in design to ensure optimal shock absorption. This complex segmentation guarantees enhanced force absorption and distribution.

  • 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 Schuberth's  innovative Comfort Fit concept that ensures the helmet fits comfortably and securely in all situations. The combination of carefully selected COOLMAX and Thermocool materials, with 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 venting for effective ventilation
  • Adjustable for summer/winter
  • Allergen-free
  • Antibacterial
  • Removable comfort cheek and head band pads

Ventilation:

Thanks to the design of the vents, the supply of fresh air is increased by up to 60%. The combination of multipath channels in the EPS foam liner and the head/chin/mouth ventilation ensures 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.) was especially developed by SCHUBERTH as a safety feature and is incorporated into every SCHUBERTH motorcycle helmet. It ensures that the helmet cannot roll off of the head when 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
  • Reduces the chance of the helmet coming into contact with the chest as the result of an accident
  • 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 the use of tools.

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

Best Helmet I Have Ever Owned
This is the best helmet I have ever owned. First and foremost it ranks up there as one of the safest helmets on the market. I purchased the Hi Viz green color. I literally see jerks who are thinking about pulling out in front of me take a double take and check themselves because the helmet is so visible. Second, this helmet is extremely light and does not fatigue me after riding 900-1000 mile stretches. Third, this helmet has incredible visibility. Truly the best I've seen. Fourth, this helmet is incredibly quiet. Last, the helmet is the most comfortable I have owned. I bought a large helmet and an additional medium liner. The medium liner fits my head great most of the year with the large helmet, but in the winter I plan to put the large liner back in so I can wear a hoodie. This helmet is a pricey, but worth it. I give it a solid 10! I feel so strong about this helmet, I bought one for my twin brother who is a diehard Harley guy. It took him a while, but now he only wears the Shuberth.

Great Helmet! Highly recommended!
I recently purchased a new bike (BMW F800 GS Adventure) and was consequently in the market for a new helmet. I originally narrowed my purchase down to the NEXX XD1 or the new BMW GS helmet. Unfortunately, at the time I purchased my bike neither of these lids were available so I started to look at other helmets. I'd never really considered a flip up before . . . as I tended to think it didn't really fit the adventure rider style. However, on a recent group ride, one of the guys had a C3 and couldn't say enough good things about it. When the NEXX XD1 finally become available I ordered one as well as a C3 Pro. Both helmets arrived and I spent some time walking around the house with each of them on. While the NEXX XD1 looked the part with more aggressive styling, the C3 Pro was definitely the more comfortable and higher quality helmet. The NEXX seemed to fit quite small and was very tight on my head. However, the C3 Pro fit like a glove and was very comfortable from the moment I first put it on. I also liked the flip-up feature which is VERY handy when crossing the Canadian / US border (which I do often). I no longer have to remove my helmet when I get to customs, I simply flip it up. I thought the beak on the XD1 would be great . . . but to be honest . . . the amount of time I'd really need that feature to block the sun would be minimal. So, I sent the XD1 back and kept the C3 Pro. I've been VERY happy with my purchase. It's more comfortable, quieter and higher quality than any helmet I've previously owned (ARAI, BMW Enduro, etc.). I'm loving the flip up feature as well as the integral sun shade. I no longer have to fuss with sunglasses or changing from a tinted shield to a clear one when darkness looms. Comfort is superb and the quick release clip is way nicer than traditional D rings. It vents well and I can really feel the air circulating around the top of my head when the vents are open. In view of all the distracted drivers currently on the road, I opted for the hi-viz yellow version. It really stands out and helps make me more visible to other riders. The look and design are obviously more conservative and less aggressive than traditional dual sport helmets, but overall I've been very, very, very happy with is so for. If you are looking for a top tier helmet with lots of great features, I'd certainly recommend the C3 Pro.

Best Helmet so far!
Having owned a regular C3 for a few years, I was not sure if I should pull the trigger and upgrade to the newer C3 Pro helmet. Besides the fact that I could now get the helmet in my favorite color (red), I was excited to try it on for the first time and see if all the hype was true. It is! Very comfortable, break-in took about 10 hours, the quietest helmet I have ever owned, great visibility, much better air flow, plus the neck strap is much improved and more comfortable than the previous model. I absolutely love this helmet!! Recommended!!

Wicked expensive, but I'm loving it!
FIT

I knew from my experience with my old Schuberth R1, that out-of-the-box, the C3 Pro probably would NOT fit me well. That's why I ordered one size up (like I did with the R1) and bought thinner cheekpads (to give my square jawbones more room). I also figured I'd have to modify the cheekpads anyway (which I've done for every helmet I've purchased).

See my separate review of the C3 (non-Pro) cheekpads (see product link below). In it, I describe how I pulled out and cut off a small section of the foam to make room for the temple arms of my eyeglasses. I also mention in that review that the stock cheekpads that came inside my C3 Pro had broken zippers. These zippers really are junk. The standard C3 (non-Pro) cheekpads fortunately do not utilize zippers.

The C3 Pro, like other Schuberth helmets, puts pressure on my forehead. The liner is strangely bulky in the forehead area. I feel like I'm wearing a tight sweatband. This was bothersome at first, but I got used to it.

Having tried on other helmets with a micro-adjust "Euro" latch on the chin-straps, I was wary of the C3 Pro's. When I first donned the C3 Pro, the latch was jamming into my neck. While replacing the cheekpads (which required undoing and then redoing the anti-roll-off straps), I adjusted the chin-straps so that the latch is no longer centered on my neck, but is instead off to one side. This made all the difference in the world. The latch and straps are super-comfy now -- more comfy than the D-ring straps on any of the helmets I've owned. I love the Euro latch now!!!! Plus, it works one-handed, even with gloves on.

FLIP-UP DESIGN

I love love love love the flip-up aspect. It's so dang useful whenever I'm off the motorbike -- whether gassing up or just suiting up. Schuberth got their flip-up design right. It works one handed, but it latches down securely. And if you look at the SHARP (UK govt) helmet testing scores, the C3's flip-up faceguard stayed fully locked in 97% of impacts. That's the highest of any flip-up helmet.

Unfortunately, the flip-up design makes the C3 Pro difficult to hold when flipped-up. I'm scared I'm going to drop the helmet. I dropped my Schuberth R1 once -- breaking the visor mechanism beyond repair. I'd hate to break the expensive-as-butt C3 Pro in a similar fashion.

VENTING

The top vents REALLY WORK. The top vents on my Shark and Arai helmets barely move air compared to the vents on the C3 Pro. Having wind in my hair is awesome. So much heat gets pulled off the top of my head!!!!

By the way, the liner has small "bat ears" that you fold away to increase airflow up top. You can pull these bat ears back out if you want to reblock the vents.

Also, I have so far had no problems whatsoever with the visor or my glasses fogging. Unlike my fog-prone Arai helmets, which have chin vents that open directly to the mouth area, the chin vent on the C3 Pro (like the chin vent on my Schuberth R1) vectors air up along the backside of the shield as well as across the lenses of my glasses, preventing any fogging. I can understand how this could bother contact-lens wearers; all that air might dry out your contacts.

I don't have my own concrete evidence yet that the C3 Pro will be fogless in the rain or in the winter, but my old R1, with its similar venting scheme, remained fogless regardless of the weather. I'm looking forward to wearing the C3 Pro in the rain as well as in the coming winter and finding out if it does indeed remain fogless. Oh -- and the Pinlock lens is still in its packaging. I've had no need for it yet.

INTERNAL SUN VISOR

I hate how the internal sun visor has a nose cutout. The nose cutout is visually distracting. I often ride with the sun visor partially down, blocking the bright sky above the treeline when I'm riding tight, rural roads. In this kind of situation, the nose cutout is exactly where you don't want it to be, because it ends up letting through too much bright sunlight from in-between the trees.

Also, even with the sun visor all the way down, you've got a distracting area of bright sunlight just between your eyes.

My old R1's sun visor could be popped out and reinserted upside down, so that the nose cutout would be hidden, and the bottom-edge of the sun visor would then be flat across. Unfortunately, you can't do this with the C3 Pro's sun visor, and you're forced to make do with an unneeded nose cutout. My nose is big -- and it doesn't come anywhere near hitting the sun visor.

HI-VIS COLOR

If I had to do it again, I'd buy solid white or a B/W stripe (if Schuberth ends up offering a striped scheme in the US). The hi-vis color of my C3 Pro is so bright, it reflects off my GPS, gauges, and satellite communicator like crazy!!!! I need to re-angle my GPS and satellite comm to prevent mirroring of the helmet. Also, plenty of drivers still ignore me, and I still have to make the usual number of defensive moves to avoid getting hit. In other words, a hi-vis helmet does nothing to pull the eyes of distracted drivers off their iPhones. Interestingly, I now receive waves from bicyclists and runners who are wearing the same hi-vis color. I guess there's a secret "brotherhood" of hi-vis wearers, and now I'm a member!!!!

Pricey and Probably worth it
It is quieter than most all other helmets. It is comfortable. Probably the price you have to pay for quiet these days.

Exceeded my highest expectations
I had so very much wanted to love this helmet... I had a terrible time just trying on the original C3: my longer-than-wide yankee American head hated the more spherical confines of the C3. The C3 Pro is just that little bit longer front to back, and it has made all the difference. My favorite full-face lids are the Arai Corsair V and the Arai Signet. The new Schuberth C3 Pro feels very similar to the Signet. I am impressed with the overall compactness of the shell (I am fitted perfectly in the Large/59cm size), and the lightness of this helmet. It is visibly smaller than my Signet, and considerably smaller then the Shoei Neotech -- which I also loved.
In the end, I went with the Schuberth C3 Pro due to its overall comfort, quality of build, features, light weight, best peripheral vision, and the integrated (optional) communications collar. I like the latching mechanism of the Neotech better, but I like the sun visor mechanism better on the Schuberth. The finish on the Shoei is stunning, yet I am all about the hi-viz neon yellow colorway these days, so score more aesthetic/safety points for the C3.
The C3 Pro fits me a tiny bit more snugly in the cheeks than the Neotech, about the same actually as the Arai Signet I wear when not wanting the modular. The Neotech is "felt" a bit more toward the occipitals -- nothing objectionable. I spent a lot of time wearing these helmets while sitting at the desk as I had to make sure I could still love them after a 10 hour day in the saddle (I didn't wear them for that long a time! And yes, my hair was always shampooed and clean). These are both "winners" and I would not hesitate taking either one cross-country. But the Schuberth C3 Pro is so light, so quiet, and so well-made... and plenty comfortable for me. There are things that bug me about any helmet... and never the same things, so I am always weighing the trade-offs. The Schuberth is not "perfect", but it is at least equal to the best and most comfortable helmet I have in the collection. It is getting an 8000 mile workout in June!!

Worth the Money
The combination of all the feature drew me to this helmet. I would have been happy with the previous version (on sale) but the chin strap was just a bit too tight around the neck. I would have preferred to pay $300 for the old model on sale but considering how long I will have this helmet I am very happy with the purchase.

Very good helmet
The fit is different than what I have worn before, it takes some getting use too. At first I thought it was to tight in the cheek area and felt a larger size would be too big as it fit well everywhere but the cheeks. Closing the face guard took two hands at first but I figured out how to do it with one hand. Love the style and it appears to be a good solid head protection gear. A very expensive helmet but feel the protection it claims to offer is worth the $. This plus the Schuberth C3 Pro SRC System work well together.

Well worth the investment!!
At first I was hesitant to "shell" out the money for this helmet when there are so many that can be had for alot less cost. That being said, after several weeks I am Extremely satisfied and happy with my purchase! the helmet was "snug' at first, but broke in nicely. The drop-down visor,quick-release chin strap, and the modular lock system are spot on. I choose the Hi-Viz yellow, and have had many comments relating to it standing out in traffic!! You can't go wrong buying this!!

Picked this over Shoei Neotec
I was looking to replace a set of Nolan N102's for my wife and I that were getting a little worn out. We have just purchased matching Tour Master Air Intake 3 Hi Viz Mesh jackets and wanted to add a high viz helmet also. I had narrowed my search down to the Neotec Borealis and the C3 Pro. Using Revzilla's try before you buy offer (actually buy then return), I ordered one of each and wore them around the house for a while to see which I preferred. You can find my review of that helmet on the Shoei Neotec page on Revzilla.

My head measures 59cm exactly and is between an intermediate oval and long oval. I wear either L or XL typically. I ordered a large, based on Revzilla's sizing rec and it was perfect. My wife, with a 55.5 cm noggin opted for the M and fits her like a glove.

The Schuberth C3 Pro is pretty much like they say in the video, a state of the art premium modular that is packed with features. Already wearing a modular for touring, I wanted another modular and plan to wear it on my naked cruiser as well. I do sometimes wear black leather jacket and I liked the idea of a high viz helmet to increase visibility, theoretically of course. The Schuberth is high viz, and while not exactly the same color as the Tour Master, blends well with it. Compared to the Neotec, it has several features that i like. I'll move on to a Pro/Con style for the remainder of my review.

Pro:
The helmet is very light and compact. Because the shell is not as bulbous as others and has a narrow profile, it feels like it conforms to your head, without feeling cramped. In other words, it wears lighter than its weight would even suggest. This reduces neck fatigue.

It is quiet. Compared to my full face Corsair V, HJC AC-12 or the previously mentioned N102, it is remarkable how quiet this helmet really is. I always ride with ear plugs but, on the Goldwing at least, may chose not too with this helmet. There is a little wind noise, of course, but it is much more muted than I'm used to.

The sun visor works very well. It isn't optically distracting at all. It comes down low enough without touching the nose. It is dark but I always want sunglasses darker, and this is no exception. I'm not complaining, just voicing my opinion. The mechanism is smooth and is easy to find on the bottom of the left side of the helmet. As many do, you push it back to lower and forward to raise, which is counter to what it seems should happen so it takes some getting used to.

I haven't had the opportunity to ride in hot weather as I just got the helmet and it hasn't been abvet 75. In the cooler weather though, you can feel the air on your head. It felt like an air conditioner on my bald dome. The front ventilation keeps the face shield from fogging but is easy to close accidentally when lowering the flip face or shield. I call it good ventilation, which is probably all a non race intended modular that is at all quiet can muster.

The flip face latches solidly but takes a bit to get used to in order to operate with a single gloved hand. Once you figure out where the release is, it works well. It does take a firm closing and with the breath guard (and boom mike) it is easier to use two hands to close, but can be done with one if everything is positioned just right.

Even though the helmet feels narrow, I can get it on without removing my glasses. I could not on the Neotec as the neck roll was too snug to allow me to fit it on with glasses no matter what I did. This was one of the reasons I chose the Schuberth over the Shoei

The face shield is nothing too special. The detents are firm, but not as firm as the Shoie. It locks closed easily but opens easily too, unlike the Arai which takes a bit of effort to open. The city position is barely cracked open and I would prefer a little more personally. I have not tried the pinlock yet.

The front spoiler works as advertised and all but eliminates the lift, even on my unfaired bike. My full face helmets pull up pretty hard when I ride it, but not with the Schuberth. You hardly know it's there. The wind buffeting is hugely improved also. My wife really appreciated this on the back of the Wing with me. Her neck fatigue, or lack thereof, was truly amazing. Well done Schuberth.

An added safety touch is the reflective strips on the front brow of the helmet and the rear neck roll. I ride to work in the dark so I appreciate all the reflectivity I can get.

Cons:
Obviously the 800lb Gorilla is the price. It's very expensive. Is it worth $800. Only you can say. It was to me and I bought one for me and the missus.

My head is maybe a bit more long and intermediate and there is a hot spot above my forehead on the crown, about where the liner seam is on the headband. This eventually went away for me after wearing it around the house. The Shoei had exactly the same hot spot but it never went away. This was another reason for me to choose the C3 Pro. After wearing while riding for an hour or so, I did feel that hot spot return for a while, then it went away again. My wife also feels it on her head so I think it may be a function of the liner, not the shell. Who knows.

As a note, I was able to install our Sena SMH-10 coms with no trouble. You have to use the stick mount instead of clamp, but it works just great. With the helmet being so quiet, the volume setting is much lower too.

Other than the hot spot issue, which I'm still hoping will resolve completely with break in, this helmet is about all I can ask for. It is well engineered and construction is excellent.

Schuberth helmets are the best, no question, but this one is a lemon, lost the ventilation adjuster immediately, neck collar comes loose all the time and the sun screen is stuck. Needs to go back for repair. Wonder if quality control is slipping at Schuberth as I heard problems from other riders too.

Hans N on Aug 8, 2016
Good helmet. I really like the flip down sun visor. Air Flow is OK, not great. This helmet is better suited to cool weather riding. Hi-viz is an obvious safety choice.

Comfort, visibility and minimal noise level

Wanted something in Hi-Viz for better safety and I like the option of being able to add a communications system.

I have another c3 pro (High intesity) and it's an outstanding helmet. I ordered the c3 hi viz because it was on sale but it's too round to my head shape and it was really bothering my adam's apple. I know the c3pro is way more expensive but worth it. It's always a pleasure doing business with you guys !

As the cagers out there get increasingly distracted/oblivious, like the idea of being seen better. Looking forward to better fit at neck/chin too.

one of the best helmets made. Its your head after all
Christopher W on Nov 13, 2014
Best helmet I've had. I've always had quality helmets but they don't seem to fit my noggin well. This one is really comfortable and quite for me. Would I buy this again. YUP!
Dale S on Oct 29, 2014
Simply the best all-around modular touring helmet I have ever had. Hi-Viz is essential for grabbing the limited attention of cars and trucks out there. SRC integration is fantastic.

Great Helmet, high conspicuity.

This helmet fits like a glove and an super high quality and extremely quiet. It's a little warm with the visor closed on hot days but immediately cools down with the visor cracked open. Highly recommend this product - high end but with every penny!
James D L on Aug 28, 2014
Good helmet, fits small. Ridiculously over priced. (No fault of Revzilla). Will not eliminate need for ear plugs at higher speeds to maintain safe noise level with or without good faring or windshield.
Revzilla great company.
David L on Jul 26, 2014
Watched Anthony's C3 Pro review several times. Wanted a hi-viz helmet with high end features. This is a state of the art product. I look forward to wearing it.

Hey love what you guys are doing. Website was super informative. Thanks again. I will hopefully order more. Have a great day.

My present helmet is10 years old. I wanted to join the 21st century w/pinlock and a bluetooth SRC System so I can pair the audio w/my iPhone 5. A "custom" installation seemed a compelling way to go.
I have become increasingly aware of safety issues related to adequate visibility. I am hoping this will suffice so I can continue to use my rather neutral colored Aerostich Darien jacket.

Knowing the value of my skull and its contents, and having had two concussions recently (unrelated to bikes), I am selecting what appears to be the best protective helmet available for mainly on-road, and occasional off-road, use with my Suzuki DR650SE.

Light weight, small profile, aerodynamic, modular, quiet, hi-viz helmet that costs too much (had gift certificate from my kids, so did it anyway). I love this helmet.

After reading other questions, I'm concerned about using my Sena 20S Bluetooth Headset with this helmet. Will it fit on/in the helmet? Can I use the internal antenna with my Sena system?
Shelley S on Oct 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have the older Schuberth C3. I installed the Sena 20s and needed to use the adhesive mount rather that the standard clamp mounting. It seems to work fine but would possibly be a bear to remove. That adhesive is strong. I don't know about using the helmet's internal antenna. I would guess not.
I have a low windshield on my bike and experience a tremendous amount of buffeting. I am looking at the Schuberth C3 pro high-viz and hoping this will take care of it. The buffeting is driving me crazy and I do not want to put a full windshield on my bike. Has anyone experienced the same? How much buffeting should I expect with this helmet? Thanks! Rob R.
A shopper on Oct 30, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I just rode 1000 miles in severe wind on my 2013 GS1200. The helmet does not reduce or increase buffeting. It is the aero effects of the motorcycle. The C3 pro is quieter than my Arai RXQ, but I still needed ear plugs. Everyone is different, but the C3 Pro is an excellent helmet. If it fits your head shape correctly, you can't go wrong. If you really want to eliminate buffeting, change your bike or get a bike with aero package, like BMW RT1200, Goldwing, or BMW K1600, etc. I wish changing helmets could fix buffeting.
DOES THE HI VIZ REFLECT LIGHT AT NIGHT OR IS THE HI VIZ DESIGNATION SOLELY A RESULT OF COLOUR? THANKS ALL.
Pat H on Apr 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Does it glow in the dark, no. It's just yellow and highly visible in the daytime. I feel safer with yellow in the normal light.

Which Schuberth sun visor comes with the stock C3 Pro helmet?
A shopper on Oct 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There is an internal flip down visor which is fine...activated via a slide mechanism on the side lower edge..works fine..
I've ridden with the C3 for several years now. The fit is perfect for me--snug but no pressure points. How is the C3Pro fit different?
A shopper on Jun 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's quieter and even better fit (for me). No pressure points. Same, but better is all I can say. Love this helmet!
I have a C2 in size XXXL that fits fairly well that I'd like to replace. How do the fits on the C3 and C3 Pro compare to that of the C2?
A shopper on Mar 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I went from C3 2XL to C3 Pro 2XL and fits better. Did not have to make room at top of forehead by denting-in the styrofoam like on the C3. More neck room too.
Tried on the 3XL, was tight in the face and forehead--squeezed my cheeks together. Nice helmet, but are smaller cheek and forehead pads available? Thanks!
TheRealSlick on Sep 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: First when I purchased the helmet the only measurement i used was the online head sizing matrix. That number for me was 59. Once I received the helmet in the mail, I tried it on and noticed that the chin strap when closed pressing into my adams apple in a slightly uncomfortable way. I was unsure what to do. I ended up hanging onto it, used it, and eventually the helmet became more comfortable over time. That process took about a week of wearing it everyday.

Hope that helps, I get complements on the helmet everywhere I go as well. I’m satisfied and will probably buy another one later on. I’d like to get the insert for the telecommunications hook up.

Any word for the orange version as the non pro C3?
A shopper on Feb 18, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I don't know about ALL orange, but mine is black on the sides with a big, wide orange stripe down the middle - the EXACT same orange as my '03 Triumph Thunderbird Sport.
I recently bought a spare clear visor and a tinted visor for my C3 and want to know whether they will properly fit the new C3 Pro, if I decide to buy one. From the video, it appears that they may be identical.
A shopper on Feb 4, 2013
BEST ANSWER: All of the internal and external parts on the C3 are interchangeable with the C3 Pro. There is a slight difference in the amount of detentes between the face plates (the C3 has 2, while the C3 Pro offers three, giving greater shield positions), however this is the only variation between the two. The cheekpads and liners are interchangeable as well, however there is a difference in the materials used on each.
I have a schuberth concept size 63. Should I get the same size in a schuberth c3 pro?
