Schuberth C3 Pro - Gravity Yellow
Customer Product Reviews
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!
Having previously had a full face Shoei helmet a friend recommended that I try a flip up Schubert and I am very glad that I did. The quality is outstanding, no problems with misting or excessive noise, the flip up system is very user friendly and I really like the understated colour combination.
Bargain price matched
Finally decided to buy a C3 Pro after looking at and trying all sorts of helmets, the C3 fits like it was moulded to my head, the quality stands out a mile. The first time I was caught out in the rain the Pinlock visor did not mist up anywhere and the helmet is also very quiet with minimal wind noise. Last week while riding in very windy conditions there were no buffering at all. And to finish Sportsbikeshop were great as usual, not only supplying an exemplary service but price matched my helmet down and saved me over £100. will definitely be shopping here again.
So good, it's my 2nd C3 PRO
I purchased a C3Pro a couple of years ago now after trying numerous different helmets. Nothing seemed to fit my head shape well, but the c3pro is perfect. Sportsbikeshop we're offering the echo green version with around £150 discount so I had to snap up another.
This is the best piece of motorcycle gear I've bought in the last 10 years. It's not the flashiest - understated and classy - bit like the wearer. It felt quite tight across the forehead when first put on but is very comfortable, I regularly do a 3hr trip in mine and no problems. Unlike previous helmets that have ended up so uncomfortable across the forehead I've had to stop and take them off to relieve the pressure. Took me a little while to get used to having the sun visor mechanism on the chin bar rather than up on the visor but up to speed now. I have had some misting issue in torrential rain but in all other conditions works very well. Vents are simple to use in winter gloves. It is considerably quieter than my old helmet (Shark) but I still use earplugs for long journeys. It is also stable at speed, although I too like another reviewer notice a slight whistle when my head is turned to the side at speed, but as I ride looking forwards the majority of the time this is not an issue. One thing I've found you can't do is ride with the chin bar flipped up at any sort of speed (over 30/40mph) as it catches the wind and tugs your head back. Having said that it's fine for round town on a hot day, and means you don't have to take it off at petrol stations. Also means you can sneeze and not coat the inside of your chin bar and visor in phlegm. I like the ratchet closure on the chin strap it's less fiddly than a double d-ring system. Sizing was as expected, measured up and ordered according to their size guide. I haven't used the comms system so can't comment on that but have used standard earbuds from my phone for sat-nav instructions. It being a quiet helmet means that this works and you can hear the instructions. In conclusion this is a very good product but there are others out there too I'm not going to say it's the best helmet ever as I've not tried them all but I would buy another one.
5 out of 10
Hi, I bought this helmet with great expectations but I don't think it's worth for the money I paid. It's not as quiet as being advertised. Too tight sizing and the antifog insert which comes with it, already failed after a year of use. It's a lightweight helmet but there is no way it's worth £450 (that's what I paid for).
Great choice of protection
The helmet is very comfortable and light to wear. A little bit noise from wind, but very much. Fantastic design and perfect airflow from the vent. Great sun visor, something broke, but was fixed in no time by Schubert under warranty. Would definitely recommend.
Pleased with my first flip front helmet
I don't notice it being quieter the my previous Shoei XR1100 but my glasses don't mist up hardly at all and the flip down sunvisor is really useful. I like the strap buckle and the quality seems as good as my previous Shoei.
Perfection & so quiet
If, like me, you're concerned about spending your hard-earned cash fear not. The product description and reviews for the Schuberth C3Pro, along with the fantastic offer price convinced me to invest in this superb piece of kit. From the first time I used it to date it has proven to be an excellent investment in both my safety and my hearing. The quietness is superb, the fit is excellent, the features are both practical and efficient - no gimmicks just all functional with excellent airflow to keep me cool and fresh. Easy to use (even with thick winter gloves!) slider for the drop down sun visor. Time will tell on build quality. My only reservation is for the matt finish as opposed to a gloss one BUT with Schuberth's 5 year warranty as standard some piece of mind is also provided here. As always, fantastic customer service from Sportsbikeshop - ordered on the Saturday and delivered on the Sunday of a bank holiday too!
