Schuberth C3 Pro Hi-Viz Helmet Videos

Schuberth C3 Pro Hi Vis Helmet

The new 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 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

Faceshield:

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 Hi-Viz Helmet 4.8 5 15 15
As expected from Schuberth Very happy with the C3 Pro I felt the enhancement from my C3 Schuberth did it again February 3, 2014
Expensive, but is as advertised. Helmets are like shoes. Size really doesn't tell the story. This helmet is a great fit for my head, so it starts by being comfortable. Two days after receiving the helmet I headed off on a 1,000 mile ride. I did it in two 500 mile days, so I wore the helmet for long periods of time. Short story - it never fatigued me. My last helmet (Scorpion EX-900) I rode for about 40,000 miles in 24 months and could do a long day in it also, but it was significantly heavier and noisier. I particularly like the fit of the helmet on the top and brow. Feels like a large hand has wrapped around the top of my head. Noise: It is good - not like wearing a Bose headset, but definitely good. Features: I still reach in the wrong places for vents and shields, but they are appropriate. My first ride was in 30 degree F to 50 degree weather and had no issues regulating the temperature. Improvement: Two thing do need to be improved in this helmet. First, when riding with just the sunglass shield down - it rattles excessively above 45 mph. Annoying. Second, Take the "nose" cutout of the sunglasses. It is not needed. I would definitely repeat my purchase. November 25, 2013
I'm not sure what everyone else was reviewing! I bought this helmet last week, & will be eating domino pizza and soup for 2 months to pay for it. Monster expensive, but I will keep it (I hope) 5 years, & I ride 7,000 miles or more a year. Over that period, it matters. Fit: its a modular helmet. so the pressure point is over the brow. It feel weird after a normal full face, but get used to it after 10 minutes. Airflow: Amazing. So much air flow I had a cold spot on my head at 45 degree weather. I have never closed the vents on my Arai: I closed the vent on this to stay warm. There is HUGE airflow. Noise: I still need earplugs. I read they wind tunnel tested to 100mph: I do not think so. 100kmh, maybe... so when you cruise at 75 or higher on slab, you still need earplugs. I think the 65 page manual says "it will be so quiet you may not feel how fast you are going, so check the speedo" Ha! Really? NB: I might be harsh: at 6'1", I ride a gs with a tall seat and a tall windshield, if I were lower down maybe it would be as quiet as advertised. Sun-visor: Amazing. How did I go these years without being able to flip down a pair of sunglasses. I'm never going back to wearing sunglasses, ever. How anybody sees under it is beyond me. Maybe the helmet isn't on straight, or they have not lowered the sunshade th whole way. It's pretty much impossible to look under it. Pin-Lock: Amazing. I put the shield in this morning. I left Boston in 38 degree rain, and the visor never fogged up. Huge safety feature for me at least, to be able to ride visor-down and not bother with fogging up. Colour, Hi Viz: get it. Cars see you. The 17 yr old me would never wear high viz, the 47 yr old me may not leave the house again without high viz. Weight: its heavier than my old Arai. I can't see what the fuss is about "super light"... My Arai Q 7RR is 3.4 on the bathroom scale, the C3 pro is 3.6. Its a bathroom scale, so not exact, but the Arai is lighter. Neither are heave anyway, can't see why it is an issue. Conclusion: there is hype about weight and wind noise, that I think honestly is garbage. It is a great helmet, it has great features and great airflow. Very expensive, and better last 5 years. November 3, 2013
A great alternative to Aria I've been an Aria user for years, solely because they offered a long-oval fit model - other helmets would ware a hole on my forehead. I tried a C3 and I could see it would do the same, but they addressed it with the C3 Pro, so I bought one. Just back from a three day trip with it - game changer! What a fine helmet, all the accolades you read in the reviews are on the mark. The modular thing is great, flip down visor is a great feature, quieter with out plugs then my Aria was with them. Also, very happy I went with the high vis yellow. In our group, everybody commented on how easy I was to spot - well worth the teasing. October 28, 2013
Great Helmet This is a high quality, very quiet helmet that is worth every penny of its high price tag. The optional SRC communication system is truly outstanding in both sound quality and range. I highly recommend this helmet. August 5, 2013
Unconvinced that the helmet is worth it I needed a replacement for my Shark Evoline XL that more or less saved my brain in an accident. I am a big fan of the Evoline for many reasons, but I wanted to get a quieter helmet. So, I decided to shell out the money for this helmet, because it's supposed to be so much quieter, and there's the reputation of Schuberth across the world. I also was going to install the BMW Communications System, and you're limited to the Schuberth if you want a clean installation. After a month of using it, I'm happier than I was during the first week. It's important to note that if you wear an XL with other brands (I've worn the Shark, a couple of Shoei's and an Arai), don't order the XL with Schuberth, it's too small. In fact, I tried the 3XL first, but it was too loose on my head, making it very noisy. I went with the 2XL, but it was uncomfortable. It put a lot of pressure right above the eyebrow ridge, and I would get headaches after an hour of riding. Unfortunately, I rode with it, only way to tell how it fits, and it's too late to return it. (As a side note, I'm never going to buy a helmet online again, I want to try it first.) However, after a month of use, the helmet apparently has "broken-in", and it fits fine now. Maybe I'm used to it, Maybe, my eyebrow ridge has pushed it out a bit. But the big reason to buy this helmet is quietness. And I've got to tell you, this helmet is noisier than my Shark, and definitely louder than a Shoei Multitech. For the same noise level, I could have saved some big bucks. I think this helmet overstates its ability to suppress loud noises. I wear ear plugs routinely, and I didn't expect that any helmet would make me throw out those earplugs, but I did expect much better. I'm annoyed about the poor sound suppression of this helmet. I can't think of a positive thing to say about this helmet. I think it's over priced. I think that you pay for quietness, and you're not getting it. The pin lock anti-fog shield system works, but it puts some annoying lines in your field of view (and don't forget to remove the film on the pin lock shield, as I didn't do). And Anthony on the video here oversells the ventilation. It's horrible. I remove the helmet, and the padding is soaked in sweat. And it's hard to crack the shield a bit (like you can with the Shoei's) to let in airflow. So, I've taken to lifting the shield complete every few miles to give myself some airflow. I absolutely regret buying this helmet, and consider it the worst helmet I've ever owned. If I didn't have so much invested in it (helmet plus BMW communication systems, which can't be removed), I'd honestly sell it and get myself a better system. August 2, 2013
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!!!! July 29, 2013
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!! June 22, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Robert H: 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.

Robert N: SAFETY ! I want to be seen! Mar 12, 2014
Jascha L: For its quietness. Mar 8, 2014
Richard L: safety in colour & modular for rally rides where minutes matter for long distance and rally, video said it was quiet and light Feb 15, 2014
Bob D: 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. Feb 4, 2014
Howard W: High Visibility and the name Schuberth Oct 29, 2013
William E: 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. Oct 12, 2013

A shopper asked: 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.

Glenn O: Hi Rob,

I have and love this helmet. It's a great reduction in noise from my old Shoei 1100, and extremely well made.
However, it's not perfect, and can't act as a windscreen against buffeting or turbulence. The screen is the thing to minimize buffeting, not the helmet. Sorry.
I ride a Concours with an adjustable screen. I'm still looking for a slightly larger screen to minimize that buffeting at times, but love that I can adjust it for the conditions. I've had a BMW S1000RR with a really low windshield and couldn't take commuting on it.

I still recommend really good earplugs. To me, it's still too noisy without them.
Hope that helps -
Glenn

Jay D: 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. Nov 2, 2013

Robert K: Rob, I also have a low windshield on my Harley Road Glide. There is "some" buffeting although not as much as my other helmets. But to clarify that is not what ultimately sold me on this helmet. The safety factors,(chin strap connections,modular lock system,and the Hi-viz color)led me to the purchase. The c3 Pro is also a very quiet Helmet when used with chin vent closed. I do not believe this helmet will totally allieviate your issue, but I do believe this is one of the best made. Oct 31, 2013

RevZilla: 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. Feb 4, 2013
