Customer Reviews for Schuberth C3 Pro - Gloss Silver
World's quietest helmet??
Don't get me Wrong, this is a very good helmet. It is obvious that the helmet is quality and well made. It is snug and yet comfortable to wear. The visors are very clear compaired to my last helmet and all of the controls including the flip up chin bar operate very smoothly. I was however expecting it to be extremely quiet but, found that although quieter than my other helmet is is not by any means silent. Maybe I was expecting too much or maybe I am more sensitive than most to the wind passing over the helmet. I have now put a speaker head set in the shell and expect this will eleviate the noise or at least some music to distract me. Would I recommend the helmet? Absolutely Yes! I chose silver as it was cheaper than other colours for some reason. And, I cannot recommend Sportsbikeshop highly enough for service and pricing. Excellent to deal with.Read more
Excellent piece of kit
A very comfortable and quiet helmet. MUCH quieter than my Arai ChaserV! I had tried on three or four C3 Pro helmets at shows and at a dealership who would not offer any discounts. I originally ordered an XL from SBS and despite my earlier fittings I had to return it for a larger size. It was still a bit snug when first trying it on, but I wore it around the house for a few days in 20-30 minute sessions and found that it soon eased and is now a very good fit. Just something to note for other buyers...make sure you check the pinlock is properly fitted in the helmet when you buy it. Mine was loose and I didn't notice this during the indoor 'easing in' period which resulted in some rub marks on the interior of the visor. Once noticed it was easy to adjust the tension and get a good fit, but I though this might have been done by Schuberth as part of their quality control. Excellent service by SBS throughout as usual.Read more
This is the best piece of motorcycle gear I've bought in the last 10 years. It's not the flashiest - understated and classy - bit like the wearer. It felt quite tight across the forehead when first put on but is very comfortable, I regularly do a 3hr trip in mine and no problems. Unlike previous helmets that have ended up so uncomfortable across the forehead I've had to stop and take them off to relieve the pressure. Took me a little while to get used to having the sun visor mechanism on the chin bar rather than up on the visor but up to speed now. I have had some misting issue in torrential rain but in all other conditions works very well. Vents are simple to use in winter gloves. It is considerably quieter than my old helmet (Shark) but I still use earplugs for long journeys. It is also stable at speed, although I too like another reviewer notice a slight whistle when my head is turned to the side at speed, but as I ride looking forwards the majority of the time this is not an issue. One thing I've found you can't do is ride with the chin bar flipped up at any sort of speed (over 30/40mph) as it catches the wind and tugs your head back. Having said that it's fine for round town on a hot day, and means you don't have to take it off at petrol stations. Also means you can sneeze and not coat the inside of your chin bar and visor in phlegm. I like the ratchet closure on the chin strap it's less fiddly than a double d-ring system. Sizing was as expected, measured up and ordered according to their size guide. I haven't used the comms system so can't comment on that but have used standard earbuds from my phone for sat-nav instructions. It being a quiet helmet means that this works and you can hear the instructions. In conclusion this is a very good product but there are others out there too I'm not going to say it's the best helmet ever as I've not tried them all but I would buy another one.Read more
Helmet size comes up small, I would normally have a Medium but needed a Large, having said that the helmets fits snugly and securely. I find the helmet suits my head shape. The fixing strap is simple to operate and feels secure. I have not use any comms devices in it yet so cannot comment on this aspect. The helmet is quiet, that is until you open any of the vents, especially the chin vent when it becomes quite noisy, it is for this reason I have marked it down one star. With all vents open I have experienced slight misting around the edges of the Pinlock visor but not enough to block vision. Overall pleased with the helmet.Read more
Usefulness and entertainment
It is a great helmet and delivers all what it promises: quietness, ventilation, audio connection with my smartphone. I find voice commands especially useful! I cannot emphasize enough how valuable a GPS with turn-based navigation can be, how much listening music can add to the riding experience. And - more importantly - the two works fabulously well together. It is very important that one should go for a slightly larger size. My previous helmet was M (56-58) and it was a bit too large. I ordered M (56-57) and it was very small. I exchanged it for an L (58-59) - Thank you, Sportsbikeshop for the fast operation -, and even that was a little bit too small. However, the helmet loosened a bit and after a week regular use it fits just fine.Read more

Improvements over the C3 include a new spoiler for improved aerodynamics for high speed riding making it the first flip-up ever to also be a good choice for the sports rider. Directionally stable with no drifting and no buffeting. Quietness is taken to another level thanks to its integrated acoustic collar giving just 82dB(A) at 100 km/h on a motorcycle without fairing. The fully removable and washable lining comprises Coolmax and microfibre giving even more comfort on long trips. The neck band is made from abrasion-proofed materials with a higher air out take thanks to bigger mesh fabric. Two-way-ventilation provides up to 9 litres of fresh air per second. Integrated into the helmet are two antennae for a higher range (up to 700 metres) and optimized FM-Radio reception. Prepared for the Schuberth Rider Communication System, the specific C3 Pro SRC-System available separately. The integrated sun visor, easy to use thanks to the slide on the base of the helmet, can be lowered even further than its predecessor the C3.

ACOUSTICS - All Schuberth motorcycle helmets are developed and optimised under scientific conditions in the Schuberth wind tunnel. The reduced noise level assists the rider's concentration and attentiveness. Thanks to the anti-noise technology used in the C3 Pro noise within the helmet is limited to Only 82dB(A) at 100 km per hour (on faired bikes).
RETENTION SYSTEM - Micro-lock ratchet retention system for quick and easy fastening. Both sides of the chin strap are adjustable for ease and precise length adjustment.

AIR VENTILATION - The C3 Pro is equipped with an innovative ventilation system. The combination of multipath channels in the EPS foam shell and the head, chin and mouth ventilation ensure that fresh air is distributed efficiently throughout the entire head area.
CO2 VENTILATION - The concentration of carbon dioxide inside the helmet is a key safety factor for preventing symptoms of fatigue and the thinning of breathable air. The Schuberth C3 Pro helmet guarantees that the CO2 concentration remains below the workplaces maximum limit of 0.5%.
