Schuberth C3 Basic - Matt Black
Customer Product Reviews
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.
Great replacment helmet.
I bought this helmet to replace my old Schuberth C3 ( Which had been great but just wore it out ) The new one is just the best fitting helmet I have ever worn. Light, quiet, front chin vent is excellent and everything works as it should.....perfect !! You don't have to pay top dollar for a really good helmet and it doesn't have to be the top of the range.
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.
Specifically bought a flip front lid as I wear glasses and chose this one as it's supposed to be quiet - which it is! One of the best qualities is the resistance to turbulence. When you turn your head at motorway speeds my old HJC would drag in the wind and pull your head backwards with lots of extra wind noise - this lid does none of that and also resists the effects of turbulence when behind a van or SUV. The HJC would bobble about terribly making it very uncomfortable, with the Schuberth you still feel it but the effect is so much less. All in all very snug and comfy to wear.
Chosen for low noise, after a test ride found it noiser than my old Caberg, but by raising up on the pegs above the windscreen, it is actually quiet. Flip front needs a good tug to secure and with top vent open it froze the top of my head (8 deg ambient), so reckon a pinlock insert essential to keep snug and fog free.Lightweight and good field of vision. Looks and feels good quality.
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!
Good bit of kit
This is my first flip up helmet I have ever used and my first Schuberth product. The C3 is a very well constructed helmet with some good features. I find it very comfortable and it is much quieter than my previous AGV . The visor is very easy to remove and put back on. Good ratchet mechanism and thumb lift tabs both sides make lifting the visor so easy. Good vents, chin vent is super easy to operate on the go. Good inner sun visor and Pinlock insert ready make this helmet a good choice. Very stable at speed and light weight. I would buy another one for sure but maybe the C3 Pro would be my next choice.
The Schuberth basic C3 ticks all the boxes, it is much quieter than my last flip front helmet. The fit is great even with my distance glasses on. The built in sun visor is easy to operate with a gloved hand the chin strap has a tab which makes removal easy, its also lighter and more aerodynamic. Well worth spending that little bit extra.
Great quality product
I can only compare it to MDS M13 since I haven't owned anything else in my life (in regards to the lids). Incredibly comfortable, yes it puts a little bit more pressure on the forehead but thanks to this rest of your skull is not pressurised meaning you can benefit from fantastic ventilation system which is very easy and precise in operation. And since we are talking about it, ventilation is so good I had to close the vents with temperature at around 17 because I was getting cold. It comes apart quite easily and when you refit everything it looks and works exactly the same as it did on the first day. Both visors work very precisely and there is a very nice feel of quality to this item. If you ask me - worth more than £300 I spend on it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
