What's the difference between the regular C3 and the "Pro"?

New inner liner, some aero improvements/cosmetics. Oh, and $150.

BTW: EU version available from German web site for $650 or so delivered in one week to US.
Biker-land.de is a great supplier that I have used, no affiliation, just a happy customer.

Per Revzilla ad:

New or Updated Features:
  • Redesigned shell is more aerodynamic and provided more downforce at higher speeds with little buffeting
  • Interior helmet sound levels have been reduced to 82 dB(A) at 60 mph {C3 84 dB(A)}
  • Interior liner has been completely redesigned with fewer seams and a more universal, interior fit
  • Improved EPS with integrated antenna for SRC-System which improves radio and Bluetooth range
  • New micro-lock ratchet chin strap
  • Larger reflective panels on neckroll
  • Improved faceshield ratcheting
  • Integrated sun visor has a new look and improved quality

I decided to not go cheap on my next helmet.
I'll get from Revzilla or Competition Accessories if no US dealer discount can be had.
Figured it was a long shot trying for Schuberth discount.

I bought 2 Scorpion EXO 900 helmets and the main bottom trim piece on both helmets cracked.
Looks like the piece "shrunk". When it did, it split and left a gap. Trim piece catches on my jacket collar.
I've got it taped.

Scorpion said I needed to ship helmets in to get trim replaced. Nah.
I'm just going to make them 3/4 helmets and use with my 2 Ruckus scoots.

This new helmet is a retirement gift to myself.
Gonna be riding a lot more after March and want comfort and quality.

Are you sure that they will ship to the US?

I wonder if you have a warranty issue, will Schuberth US cover a Euro helmet.

Not likely.

Yes, they will, but you have to talk to them about shipping costs, per their website, and they will deduct the VAT of 20%.

I have done business with Biker-land.de for US orders. Their website provides for painless US shipment at reasonable cost and I never paid an import duty on helmet.

Went by Competition Accessories in Fort Mill, SC today.
They had the C3 Pro on sale, 20% off.
I tried a Large on and it didn't feel comfortable. Head shape wasn't quite right and was pretty tight around my jaw.
Looked really nice though.

I checked out a Shoei Neotec Borealis last month and will go with it.
Found it online for $600 shipped.

I bought a C3 Pro and returned it that same afternoon. It felt ok in the store, but after wearing it for 30 minutes it gave me a splitting headache.
