This is second helmet I buy from Sportsbikeshop. There is no need to speak about Shuberth C3 helmet - it's well-known, and I'm impressed of its perfect fit and quality. About Sportsbikeshop - perfect packing, perfect service, and I only can say thank you for this.

Good quality & quiet

Comfortable fit although as a 58 I'd prefer the size L (58-59) a tiny bit tighter. The moving parts work nicely and the flip-up is easy to operate and feels very secure. The neck roll is reassuringly snug - you can't put this helmet on unless the front is flipped up - so keeps the wind and noise out. The chin vent is excellent, letting in much more air than any other helmet I've used. The only criticism is the sun visor could do with being a little darker. I bought this mainly for reduced noise as I'm riding a naked bike and it's definitely quieter than the LS2 I was using.

Good quality helmet

Really nice helmet that came well packaged in a good box and padded helmet bag. Fits well albeit I'm almost between sizes and feels good quality to touch. Quiet and the straps and visors move with a quality feel.

Great helmet for the past 3yrs...

4* just coz the sun visor is too thin and that no pinlock provided by Schuberth. Had one for 3yrs and has done his job well. Light, silent(to an extreme =130km/h-75m/mph), comfy and ready to aerodynamic. And at less than 300eu and a great service by Sportbikeshop I'm happy with my purchase!

Comfortable helmet

This is a very comfortable helmet and easy to use. It is snug and I can use slim Panasonic earphones for my Sat-Nav no problem, as there is a cut-out space to accommodate them. I love it.

Usual excellent service

As usual, excellent service and delivery from Sportsbikeshop, even to the Scottish Highlands which often costs more and takes longer, but not with Sportsbikeshop.

Great fit

I'm a big fan of Schuberth and was looking forward to trying the flip face. The flip face is so handy and the lid fits perfectly although I would much prefer the double-D fastening system, this one has the Microlock ratchet retention system. All in all a great lid so I'm happy out.

I have always used Arai's on my sportsbike, but due to changing to adventure bike I wanted a flip front for ease when touring. Bought a cheap one and it was terrible, friends recommended the C3 and its great. Not as light as my £500 Arai, but this was half the price, its quieter than the Arai with a comfortable fit. Easy to operate the visor, and flip front with gloved hand, all in all I cannot fault it. And as always, good delivery service from Sportsbikeshop.

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 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.
