Schuberth Helmets

Geman engineering at it's finest, Schuberth motorcycle helmets

Schuberth motorcycle helmets are, and always have been, developed and manufactured using a quality oriented approach. Since the late 1970's, Schuberth have specialised exclusively in the production of head protection technology, cementing their position today as THE motorcycle helmet specialist. As well as motorcycle helmets, Schuberth also design and manufacture helmets for the police, fire service, military and other areas of motorsport, most famously for use in Formula 1. The fact that Michael Schumacher has chosen to work with the brand for so long, speaks volumes about its pedigree and the company's commitment to the development of helmet technology. This commitment is made further apparent by the fact that Schuberth are the only bike helmet manufacturer in the world with their own acoustic and wind tunnels. Via their base in Magdeburg, Schuberth are proud to promote their "made in Germany" message and now export motorbike helmets to more than 50 different countries throughout the world.

How to choose between this and the C3 Pro

I wanted a C3 or C3 pro as I am a spectacle wearer and wanted to reduce the amount of wind noise before I got tinnitus. The C3 is a great price because of the introduction of the new C3 pro. You should be aware though that it is a 10 year old design and many of the problems in this helmet have been resolved in the Pro. As with all helmets you meed to try one on to make sure if suits your head size. Here are some of the documented problems with the C3 and my experience of them. Chin strap press on adams apple. I find the chin strap to be quite tight around the throat. Not uncomfortable but I am always aware it is there. The new pro version has moved the strap forward so if you have a very prominent Adams Apple you may want to try the Pro version. Visor not staying open above 20+ mph. I've not experienced this so I think this is something they must have resolved. Mark of Schuberth. This is an uncomfortable pressure mark that people get after 20mins of riding. Most reviews on the web think it is due to the head liner being a poor design. It has prominent seams in the area and flaps that can be unfolded to block the vents in winter. I experienced this immediately. It was quite uncomfortable and would take about 20 mins to disappear. I took advice from the net and ordered an S2 head liner which fit the C3. Although an added expense this did fix the problem. The pro has a redesigned liner so you would not suffer with this problem. Sound reduction. The sound reduction is very effective compared to my previous helmet (Caberg Modus). I still use ear plugs but the high wind noise has disappeared and instead there is low frequency wind noise which is far more comfortable to live with. One of the reasons for this is the chin curtain makes a snug fit with the front pulled down. I find this needs to be done without gloves on in order to stop the material folding. The C3 pro claims to have reduced noise even further. The flip front does not lock in an upright position and so cannot be ridden open. This is something I may miss in the summer however the ventilation is very effective so may not be a problem. The helmet comes with a Pinlock insert and so should ensure mist free riding. Whilst this works well I have a problem with my glasses steaming over at speeds lower than 50mph with the visor in the locked position. I believe this may be due to inadequate face ventilation and has been improved on in the pro version. There are reports that the top vent ca attract bugs and some owners have made mesh covers for theirs. I think this would be a greater issue in warmer climates. Again this is a problem that has been resolved in the new version. Buffeting. The helmet has great aerodynamics and I get far less buffeting than previously. Schuberth is one of the few manufacturers that have their own wind tunnel and this shows. The Pro has a new lip at the back which is there to assist sport riders. I don't use an intercom system. The Pro has built in FM aerial and Bluetooth antenna for their own system which just replaces the collar and provides intercom, telephone and radio. Verdict. I am happy with the C3 and it is a great helmet at a great price. However, if I were to purchase again and had the money I would choose the Pro version as they have listened to customer feedback and improved on all the little niggles that customers had.

Excellent as expected

A very quiet and comfortable helmet. Bought for pillion passenger use. Noise levels minimal and anti fog pinlock visor works really well. I would suggest trying on the different sizes. It is well documented on most sites to do this as they vary to other helmets.

Noticeably more comfortable

After having a C3 for the last three years, I was looking at the C3 Pro mainly because of the better colour schemes, and then I saw the Intensity scheme in Blue of offer, I had to buy it. Sure glad I did, it is noticeably more comfortable and even quieter than the original C3, the drop down visor seems much clearer. It it still simple to use easy to change the visor when needed. For my mixed of Sunday rides and European tours it is perfect.
