    The Schuberth C3 Pro is starting to ship to dealers.
    Anyone know where I can get a discount on this $800 hi viz helmet?
    Thanks.

    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.:clap

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

    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.
