    Well, against my better judgement I ordered a helmet on line. Revzilla's no hassle return policy made it a no-brainer. With a vendor this customer oriented I only hope that I got the size right ( I did call and was advised to go up one size)
    I lead a boring life, I'm kinda excited to get a new helmet :huh

    Mine arrived this afternoon and OMFG is it a work of art! The fit and finish are exceptional and my melon fits inside just a tad snug, which will mold to my noggin in just a few rides. Best of all, there appears to be plenty of room for a mike, unlike my now retired Nolan N103 which pressed the chin guard against my lips.

    Can't wait to give it a try on the road...if it would just stop snowing!

    Looks just like mine -- you have excellent taste!:D

    I took mine out for a 100 mile spin today. Temp was 35F when I started and 44F when I got home.

    Impressions: 1) Fit and finish outstanding 2) Optics phenomenal 3) Comfort - the C3 fit my noggin like it was custom made for me. I've never had such a good fit before, even with my C2. It's snug, but snug all around with no pressure points. I really lucked out! 4) Noise - It's definitely quieter than any other modular I've worn. Up to 60mph I'm fine without earplugs, but on the Interstate there's enough noise that the plugs were needed. Noise is a tough one to deal with, as there are so many variables that can increase or decrease the sound levels. Still, on the back roads that I prefer, it was very quiet and I could actually hear the engine beneath me. 5) Hi-viz - Folks all around me were putting on their sunglasses! It definitely gets noticed. 6) Ventilation is much better than my old Nolan N103. I was wearing an LD Comfort helmet liner and even thru the fabric could feel the air passing over my scalp.

    I'm really impressed!

    Thanks for all the love here on the lid and our service.

    Of course I go out of the country for 4 days (with no internet) and the Helmets finally ship.

    I am ecstatic that you all got your lids? They came and went so fassssst.
    There is another wave coming as well.

    Is anyone having any issues I can help with? Right now the XL's are left in stock.

    Just stopped by Atlanta BMW -- always a costly mistake.

    Trying on C3s I discovered the L was comfortable to the point of almost loose.

    The M was snug but no apparent hot spots even with a helmet liner under it.

    My C2s were both L and I remember they started off with the snug feeling when I bought them five and six years ago. Sean at Atlanta BMW says other C2 wearers have been going down a size in the C3.

    I walked out with the M in Hi-viz. This thing is BRIGHT in sunlight.

    Congrats on new lid - nice piece of kit:thumb

    Individual experiences will vary - I am perfect fit size L for both c2 and c3.

    And yes - love the high viz :super

    Signed up for notification on Revzilla, but never heard a peep. Would you advise when the next batch arrives?

    Thanks

    Hey Motorman,

    It may have been that whatever size you had signed up for never arrived at all. We send out notifications at the SKU (size/color) level.

    Let me know what else we could do in the meantime.

    One more opinion on the C3: I LOVE IT!

    I had Shoei helmets for years but they always gave me a "hot spot" in the middle of my forehead.

    Switched to a Schuberth C2 which fit perfectly, but was kind of a hassle to use with the latch on the side.

    Got a C3 which fixes everything that was wrong with the C2. Easy to open and close, bigger sun shade, feels lighter and smaller, PERFECT!

    Yay Schuberth! :thumb

    Installed the pinlock last night. Removal and installation of the visor is the easiest of any helmet I've ever worn. Absolutely love that feature!

    The snow finally stopped falling yesterday so I was able to give the helmet a try this morning in nippy temps. The temps ranged from 16 to 24F. The vent at the top of my head lets a LOT of air in, really noticeable at low temps as it gave me a cold stripe up there. With the top vent closed and the front vent open, I had a little fogging at stop lights, but it went away the moment I started moving again. With the top vent open even just a bit, there was no fogging at all.

    On the Interstate at speeds up to 85mph there was no buffeting. The helmet is noticably quieter than my old Nolan, but above 65mph there is still too much noise to do without earplugs. With earplugs it was a very pleasant ride.

    I really like this helmet!

    BTW: Where is the serial number located? Do you actually have to take the cheek pads out to find it?

    Any suggestions on how to determine shape? round, oval, long oval, narrow oval?
    Other than a set of large calipers to measure the front-to-back and side-to-side axes?
    Any tricks?
