Verified Customer Reviews for Schuberth C5
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.
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.
This is my upgrade from the C3 and is without a doubt the best helmet I have ever owned (have owned over x10 helmets)
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.
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.
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
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.

Originally bought a white c5, from sportsbikeshop Leeds. Once home I found it had a paint defect. A quick call to sportsbikeshop and they dispatched another one for collection from Leeds. This helmet also had the same defect. In the end I paid more for the eclipse blue.
Initial view, helmet feels well made and comfortable. Hope it's as good as the Arai it's replacing.
After being pressure sold by a SBS staff member the Neotec 2 in July I finally relented and went back to what I know and love. The C5 is comfy, quiet and feels like a quality product. The intercom is a dramatic improvement to the C3 and easy to install again something the Neotec can't claim. The C5 is brilliant… don't listen if SBS staff tell you differently. If you want a Neotec with intercom I've got a brand new hardly used one.
Excellent value and fit. Staff were helpful, knowledgable and more than happy to bring different size and livery samples to try on.
Having used a Shark Spartan for a while I decided to try the Schuberth, mainly due it being quite and a premium brand.
Slight problem with 1 built in speaker not working but a quick call to SBS and a replacement helmet was on its way.
The helmet is of course heavier than I was used to, especially with the front raised but that's only to be expected. Mechanically the lift front solid and fits well when closed.
It is quieter than my Shark was but not by much. Most noise seems to come from around the neck area.
Very stable at speed (70mph max of course !) including when it's windy.
Added the clip on intercom system which is good but a little fiddly to get used too.
Size was about right but needed to push the foam padding in a bit round my ears to make it more comfortable for my glasses and after using for a couple of weeks is now ok.
Overall a well built and designed helmet which I am happy to use but not convinced it was worth a good few hundred pounds more than a new Shark Spartan which it the time was half the price but you don't know till you try.
Opening the box and you see that great finish. Put it on, fits snug and feels plush. Easy to use. Plus sportsbikeshop were terrific as usual
Replacement for my C3 Pro and whilst I have not worn it in the rain yet, it is comfy and quieter than the C3, even on the motorway.
Bought this after watching the sportsbikeshop review as I wanted a quiet flip open helmet for touring, the sizing is perfect I'm really pleased with it, best of all it was delivered next day.
My first Schuberth, coming off of an Arai that was a little on the loose side having lost weight. The large size C5 was a snug fit, and just a tiny bit too tight on the forehead. I ordered a thinner neck pad to sort this. So far very happy, ventilation is very good. I wear ear plugs so can't really say if it's quieter than others, but certainly at motorway speed it's a much smoother helmet than any other I've owned, and I ride a naked bike.
Firstly. Fantastic service off Sportsbikeshop.
Yes Schuberth have got this new Helmet spot on. You can tell from the moment you put it on they have nailed it after the previous poor C3.
I had it on straight from the Box for an all day eight hour ride around the lake district and up into Scotland. The fit was perfect. As if it had been poured onto my head, and comfort was brilliant.
Fantastic wide screen view out of Helmet with no having to look over the Pinlock as it covers the whole visor. Brilliant !
Then comes the Ventilation. Amazing. I've never had a Helmet that's this good. Superb.
I'm off on a trip from Cumbria to Cornwall in a few days a d really looking forward to it with this Helmet as my old one started hurting after a few hours and had to keep stopping and taking it off for a while. Sum up? Fantastic well done schuberth.

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.
