Verified Customer Reviews for Schuberth C5
Great lid, worth the cash.
22 February 2024 by Phil K
Gone from a C3 Pro to the C5.
Much better field of view, it is quieter but obviously your going to hear some wind noise being on a bike, I got the SC2 which I can hear clearly (but still battling with the SC2 itself)
The vents on the chin are really good-much better, haven't tried the top one yet-too cold at mo.
I've been in very heavy rain lately with no leaks. The visor is stiff to lift up as in lifting it on one side the other side sticks, a bit more force then unclips, I'm sure this will get better in time, I did think at first the visor memory when you close the front was a bit of a gimmick but it is a pretty cool device to be honest.
The C5 is a very good fit, I must have a Schuberth shaped head as others have also said in their reviews. In summary it's not a cheap price to pay for a lid but it is quality and I feel as safe as I possibly can do with a lid on.
Took ages to decide to go away from the C3 Pro but I'm glad I did.
My best helmet yet

I decided to treat myself
So got this helmet with the sc2 coms pack too

I treated myself to a new helmet when I bought myself a new bike. I must say the SCHUBERTH C5 is a great helmet. I loved the design of the artwork on the outside, it's also very quiet, hardly no wind noise and very comfortable. I bought the comms kit separately and that is so clear no sound loss and crystal clear. Definitely worth the money

I had been looking at a flip front helmet for a while The Schuberth c5 ticked all the boxes for me Great reviews helped me with my final decision To say I'm drlighted with my choice is an understatement Real quality piece of kit. Very quiet visor memory is a nice touch Interior is superb Went a size up to large and it's a perfect fit for me Excellent vision through visor I can't recommend this enough.

Bought for my wife prior to Christmas but due to travel delays we didnt get to try it until after the holidays. It was too large, but a few quick clicks on-line and the exchange for the size down was arranged, and at a pick up location of my choice. less than a week and the replacement had arrived. As for the helmet, its a Schuberth. Perfect fit and finish, enough said. The first helmet 57 (head measurement) felt just too larger wheras the 56 fitted perfectly. So maybe a size down if you are border line between small and medium.

I've had Schuberth in the past and know they are good quality helmets, but I didn't want to spend north of 500 quid replacing my Scorpion Exo-Tech which I damaged when I fell off my bike in a car park! Over the Christmas period, I had tried various helmets from SBS, I noticed that the C5 had been reduced to £427.99 so I thought lets have a look, ordered size 63 (I'm a 62) and it fits an absolute treat! Good quality helmet, you definitely get what you pay for, only gripe I have, is the additional £203.35 for the comms unit (not blaming SBS as this is the reduced price) hence the 4 star rating. Not used it on my bike yet (fair weather rider now) but sitting in front the telly for an hour or more, it is extremely comfortable, if it's anything like my previous Schuberth helmets then it will perform well. In summary, I've spent £631.34 on a helmet & comms which is way above my budget but where a helmet is concerned comfort is everything. I think that ordering a helmet from SBS and having the luxury of sitting at home with the helmet on to check for fit and comfort and if unsuitable can be returned for a full refund is excellent.

It's a quality helmet held in your hands.
Put it on and it's nice.
The flip up seems to work well as does the sun visor.
I wish I'd tried it on in a shop though as I do not like the chin strap at all. It's a buckle type that digs into your throat if you look down. What's wrong with a strap and two D's too pull it through
And it's got an annoying buffeting noise - that I really did not expect.
Really wish I'd stuck to another Shoei

It is my first entry into the £200+ helmets. I also felt I wanted a full face with the front lifting up. This one is the most comfortable for me with good sound dampening. Reviews online and trying it on was the determining factor. It is solid, comfortable, feels good, works well. I didn't want white, so had the black. Looks good too.
Of course, you have to try helmets on to get the one that feels best and safest.
Excellent motorcycle helmet

Better than C4 pro carbon in terms of sound proofing, ventilation and field of view. I have worn it during heavy rain and the front vents worked well, sometimes I had to rise the visor to avoid condensation. All the other reviews describe it better in regards with comms and other features. The sun visor works fine as well.
Not as perfect as I had hoped
26 November 2023 by Anonymous
I wish there was a point between average and good but I have been fair. I have worn this helmet 3 times . The paint has chipped/scratched at 3 points . My last modular helmet I had for 5 years without any paint loss. On the last very wet ride I had some rain get in via the visor and it got into the flip mechanism. Praise to SBS who allowed a swap from XL to L at their Lincolnshire store. I would have returned this helmet but I bought it for its Comms compatability with a SENA 2. So I'm going to persevere. Great fit and very quiet.
The best Helmet that I have owned
13 November 2023 by Giles G
This is my upgrade from the C3 and is without a doubt the best helmet I have ever owned (have owned over x10 helmets)
Style: Concrete Grey
Much better than my C£
31 October 2023 by Mark A
After a hot stuffy summer inside my old helmet thought it was time to upgrade. Chose the C5 over the very latest Shoei as it had already gone past the launch high price phase. It's quieter, more comfortable and better ventilated than my old C3. Also the visor closing is greatly improved. Very pleased and worth the extra.

Comfortable helmet, sound levels are good although I still wear ear plugs for hearing protection but can still comfortably hear music etc. Good how it comes pre fitted with speakers, connecting sc2 was so easy compared to neotec 2 etc. Agree with some reviews about air vents feeling a bit cheap but my only real criticism would be the extra velcroed chin protector gets caught on mic when opening/closing lid. Overall very good helmet.
Choosing the correct size helmet is a crucial
24 October 2023 by Geoffrey S
Having previously had a C3 and C4 pro,and liked the quality and fit, l knew that the C5 would be a suitable choice. However, l was uncertain about the sizing so l ordered a Large which arrived in less than 24 hours. It proved to be too large so l immediately ordered a Medium which was perfect, and the quality seems to be up to the Schuberth standard. The service provided by Sportsbikeshop was as usual, first-rate.
Great helmet! Streets ahead of previous models
15 October 2023 by Michael G
This helmet is so full of quality details it puts the previous models in the shade as well as other quality lids. The fit of the SC2 intercom is easy as the speakers are already in not the nightmarish strip down of old. It's s roomy life so I'm a 58cm I've went for a 57cm and it's perfect but try one on.

A truly great helmet. my third Schuberth helmet and easily the most quiet. The fit suits me perfectly and there was a massive price reduction because of the release of the new Shoei. I also like to open the visor with either hand and this is much easier with a Schuberth
Style: Master Blue
Very pleased with the C5
25 September 2023 by Tom L
My 3rd Schuberth, first flipfront one. Very snug & comfy fit. Quality materials. Quiet as my old S2. Good ventilation, tested in the heatwave. Sun visor is not good enough, only half as dark as the S2 & no option to buy a darker one (yet)Sun visor lever is easy to use.
Main visor good but really heavy rain still gets in through the top even with the improved top edge profile. I would recommend this C5 helmet. Only not excellent due to poor sun visor.
