Schuberth C3 Pro - Matt Black
Customer Product Reviews
As a winter rider this helmet affords clear visibility due to the Pinlock insert and ventilation system. The lifting face is easy to use with gloves on, both opening and closing. The build quality seems very good. The 'skirt' at the bottom does a good job of keeping the wind out and warmth in. One minor criticism is that this gets wet when it rains, and because it's material, takes time to dry out.
No doubt a very quiet helmet even at high speeds on the motorway. And with ear plugs in you don't hear any wind noise. I've had a chance to use it now for about 400 miles in a mix of weather and the pinlock prevents any fogging up even on cold wet mornings. Ventilation seems adequate but will have to wait till the summer to test it properly. Will definitely recommend.
Best Helmet I've owned
Bought my Schuberth C3 pro in the last month and have been out for a few rides and absolutely love it. It is extremely light, quiet and such a joy to wear compared to previous helmets Ive owned. Fantastic, as you would expect from German build quality plus a 5yr warranty just for registering. Would highly recommend and as always superb service from Sportsbikeshop.
Back to black.
I don't buy helmets for their snazzy colours,I buy a helmet for the features a manufacturer builds into them.with the schuberth you get a premium helmet that is the quietest I have ever had.you get a plush comfortable interior with effective ventilation when needed,good visibility with the usefulness of a flip lid,and at sports bike shop,a good price too.
I chose this helmet for long commutes due to the low noise levels. This aspect has been spot on. My only complaints are that the visor tends to fog and the fit can be a little uncomfortable due to the lack of padding (forehead and back of head). Integrated sunvisor and flip up chin bar work well.
Great helmet and great service!
This is my first Schubert and I'm impressed. It's much more quiet than my previous HJC RPHA 70 but then I guess that's more race orientated. I bought it because of the reputation for low noise and it doesn't disappoint. It fits well and feels both plush and comfortable when wearing it. Love the drop down visor too. It seems very well put together. It can be a bit painful on my ears when taking it off, I think this is down to the fact that it's quite snug below the ears to keep wind noise down and I'm willing to just deal with that in an attempt not to make my already ringing ears ring any louder. All in all very happy and as usual had a great experience with Sportsbikeshop.
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.
One of the best helmets
This is my second C3. Till I did not have the C3 I was not satisfied with any other helmet. That is why I bought it again, without to try anything else. It is superb in every performance and utility. Everything on it is well and practical done.
I've been using Schubert helmets since the c1 came out and do lots of touring etc mileage . This is my second c3 pro . The first will be used for local wear as it's got about a year left . Excellent sounds quality,you do get a booming noise ,but that's what good sound protection does ,being ex service and using amplivox ear protection I know . Some people complain still about noise but that's because their bikes have loud exhaust. Get an extra size up from normal fit and like a good pair of shoes that will be comfortable,done over 500 miles in a day on some trips . Highly recommended (biker of 50 years )
It's a Schuberth
I previously had a Schuberth S1, but when it came time to replace it, I didn't have the cash to replace it with another Schuberth. Now I am back in the fold. I have my tinted drop-down visor (oh, how I missed that) and a helmet that fits my shape of head. Oh, and it's far quieter than the non-Schubert helmets I have had. This is my first foray into flip up territory, but it won't be my last. I don't know why I stayed away so long. The positive click as the flip latches into place is reassuring. As to be expected from Schuberth, the quality is excellent. My only complaint is I would like more colour combinations in my size (M). Every time I saw one I liked, it wasn't available in my size. Still, we can't have everything, can we?
Great quality helmet
Bought for wife as she does not like the confines of a solid helmet, thought that a flip top helmet would help her get it on and off with less 'fuss'!! It worked and she loves it. Good size, although quite tight around the mouth when closed. Only fault I would say, and it is made a bit worse by my wife's fear of having anything around her neck (sounds dodgy) is the chin strap and Velcro strap dig into your neck when you look down. I thought she was being melodramatic, but it is quite a choke when you look down. Makes you wear the chin strap loose which is not ideal. But otherwise a good quality, reasonably quiet helmet
Top quality lid
This is the second C3Pro I've had, the other was stolen with the bike! Great fit, feels very secure and the noise reduction is excellent. The snap fastening is sooo easy after the D-ring palaver. I know they are expensive, but they exude quality and you know they will look after you when your head's banging down the road, should it come to that. Get one, get it on the drip!!
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.
I wanted a new lid no i need a new lid ( last one had definitely seen better days ) and I fancied looking at flip front helmets after trying on different types and looking into testing specs this was for me. It's extremely comfortable and great features, and when I got on the road I immediately noticed the reduction in wind noise. I couldn't be happier with this lid
Fantastic Service buying my new schuberth helmet.
I turned up first thing on a Saturday morning and after a quick try on I bought my Schuberth c3 pro helmet.. after getting home and trying the helmet on for 10 minutes or so I decided it was a little too tight which affected the comfort. after a quick call and speaking to a very helpful lady on the phone I arranged to go back the following Saturday to exchange it even though she offered to send me a return post label. when I arrived they checked my helmet for damage, which is perfectly reasonable, and within minutes a replacement larger size was handed over,.. no fuss and all the staff were friendly and very helpful. I cannot fault Sportbikeshop, the service was impeccable and nothing to much trouble ! so it was only right I celebrated with a breakfast roll from the paddock snack van on site, same service from him too !! I'll be back you can be sure of that ! Thank you Sportbikeshop for an awesome buying experience, I'm sure i will get many happy years use of my new schuberth, its so comfy and quiet ! but if theres a problem i have no doubt Sportbikeshop will honour its 5 year guarantee with the minimum of fuss. I'm blown away by the service and love my new Schuberth.
Worth the money
I've tried this once and am very impressed with the weight, and how quiet it is. It's a much better, closer fit than my previous Shoei MultiTec and seems smaller somehow which all makes it a far better experience. Great service from Sportsbikeshop as always as I spent about an hour in the store wittling down my choice!
