Customer Reviews for Schuberth C3 Pro Woman - Pearl White
Great build quality
The quality of this helmet hits you as soon as it is removed from the packaging. Nicely finished and with a great range of features. Great weight saving from the previous Caberg flip-up helmet should ensure long-ride comfort. Lovely item.Read more
Very comfortable, excellent features
I migrated to this C3 Pro "Women" helmet having worn its previous incarnation, the Schuberth C3 "Lady", for five years (both size 56/57). This review is therefore unashamedly mostly comparing the new against the old. Obviously by far the most important thing to note up front is that the reflective pink "Women" lettering can be easily removed by lifting the edge with a fingernail, leaving no mark at all. I have to admit that I have only removed the "W" so far so that it says "omen" - but when that joke wears thin the rest can come off. The alleged improved aerodynamics have made no tangible difference at all over the C3, though they claim to address a problem I did not know that I had and still don't! The internal sunshade has a larger cut-out for the nose than the C3 which is a noticeable difference in the shaded field of view. I also find that the breeze gets into my eyes if my visor is open with the sunshade down, whereas on the C3 the sunshade completely prevented that. This is presumably highly dependent on face shape but for me it is a bit of a disadvantage. I think I can see mist from my breath just that little bit more than before at very slow speeds (typically when pulling off with visor shut at the start of the day) - probably the ventilation is a bit different. I don't think the C3 Pro is any quieter than the C3 - it might be a bit bassier actually as the engine seems more noticeable at slow speeds. The C3 Pro feels tight around my cheeks at the moment which is just as expected for a new helmet. It is fine across my forehead which is the area that gave me trouble before I discovered Schuberth helmets. The colour of the inner liner has changed from beige on the C3 to a very deep purpleish pink on the C3 Pro, presumably as the beige started to look a bit grubby over time. The new colour is perfectly fine - I'm not a fan of pink but it is so deep as to be inoffensive. The weight of the C3 and C3 Pro is the same at 1570g. As far as essential features are concerned, the C3 Pro is just as good as the C3: I would not be able to live without the flip-up front, the internal sunshade is indispensable at sunset when the light changes so fast, the Pinlock visor is brilliant in all weathers and above all, the helmet was comfortable as soon as I put it on. Also the sizing is consistent, the 56/57 I bought five years ago is the same as the 56/57 of the new helmet, rather useful to know when ordering on-line. The only downer is that the C3 Pro cost £100 more than the C3 did five years ago. To be honest, if they still made the C3 "Lady" for the lower price, I would have saved the money and bought that, since the new model does not have any tangible improvements for me. But it is not an option and so I paid the extra - if you are going to wear something every day, it needs to be comfortable and practical. Having lived with the C3 for five years, it has set my expectation for long term quality of build and reliability of the C3 Pro too.Read more

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 motorbike 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, quite rightly, proud to promote their "made in Germany" message and now export motorbike helmets to more than 50 different countries throughout the world.See all Schuberth products…
