Schuberth C3 PRO

Hey everyone,

Curious to hear if anyone has experienced the new C3 PRO helmet, as it sounds like Schuberth have tried to listen to customers feedback in designing the new lid and it sounds like a pretty well resolved piece of gear.

http://www.schuberth.com/en/motorcycle/c3-pro.html

Bits I noted :

* All new liner (a common gripe among C3 owners from what I've read) made from Coolmax® and micro-fibre, all parts can be removed and washed.

* 60% greater supply of fresh air through the vents than the C3.

* 82db at 100km/h (quietest helmet they've ever made).

* New spoiler - helmet remains totally pendulum neutral in the air-flow even while riding at high speed, has no buffeting and generates zero lift.

* Matches their S2 integrated helmet by adding two built-in antennas for improved Bluetooth (the antennas are pre-set for use with their SRC communication system).

I wonder if their pinlock system is less fussy than the original C3.

I have to assume they have taken on customer feedback with the new liner, but I'm keen to find this out too.

Be a cold day in hell before I'll drop another $600-700 US to wear a helmet that painfully brands your forehead. I was ver disappointed that this fault only becomes evident after wearing the helmet for over an hour, precluding an in store try on as a way of selecting this otherwise nice helmet. Too bad, I went with a Neotec and am happy. Don't see where this is much more than orig C3.

I know how much it sucks having a helmet grind your forehead,its really a matter of fit,not the helmet's fault. We all know that though.
Ive spent a lot of time wearing helmets that slowly grind the ft of my head down, Shoei some how has solved this on their new helmets,for my head anyways. Ive got a Hornet and and RF-1100 and they're both all day helmets,no pain.

This fancy looking Schuberth looks the part though!

As an FYI, Schuberth has an improved liner now available that they are using on their S2 Helmets which we have been told resolves this issue. It is 100% compatible with the C3 and will be the same liner that comes stock in the C3 Pro.

I bought this helmet in white colour, a week ago, I rode my bike over 500 km, it rained about 100 km, not foggy visor with pinlock mounted, sun visor handles easily, ventilation from top, feel inside even the inner lining is adjusted for winter (that 2 inside channels are closed), size XL weights only 1680 grams with pinlock fitted, the quality of the interior material is very, very good. I run with 180 km/h and I had no problem. The lid is silent, closing system (ratchet) works easily and is slightly different from the c3. This helmet is excellent.

been looking at this lid for a few weeks now; have been hesitant to spend so much, but from everything I have read and the reviews I've seen on other helmets you get what you pay for. Going to pull the trigger after the next paycheck.

I'd like to hear this from someone who actually did the switch. It is the omly thing I don't like about the C3. Two hours in and I'm cursing. Any ride longer than that and I grab the OGK.

edit: just read the reviews on revzilla - may be worth a $49 gamble.

I had the "mark of Shuberth" on the forehead with my C3. I emailed Shuberth and suggested that an S2 liner might help me. They sent me one free of charge. I've only ridden with the S2 liner twice so far, but it's an improvement.
I'm happy.

Is there any difference on where the strap lands under your chin between these two helmets?
From the video above, the strap in the C3 Pro has been moved forward.

Cheers,
