    My leaking sstopped when I learned to recognize the positive click when closing the shield.

    I added th SRC last month. So far I am happy though I wish it were a bit louder.

    I am aware of the positive click, but my helmet requires a LOT more pressure than my riding partner's did. I literally have to hook my thumbs under the chin and pull down pretty hard on the tabs; his isn't that way at all.

    Spoke with Patrick at RevZilla this morning and they are looking into it. I've always had phenomenal customer support from them, which is one reason they are one of the few online dealers I buy from.

    Hey TallRob,

    Your cracking is an anomaly. Call us at 877 792 9455. We will get it warrantied up for you as fast as humanly possible. I will alert my team your call is coming. We could handle it over email, but I feel that for something like this a humans touch would allow it to be facilitated much more quickly.

    Let me know how I could help at the moment and thanks for the patience!

    Thanks for having my back Walrus! I was in Italy since 6/26 with Dainese and Alpinestars seeing 2012 collections - and I got to Mugello for the MotoGP. This is my first day back after a long two weeks out.

    Have you adjusted / tweaked the speaker at all? - I am sure you have - but a few MM's can make a huge difference in the loudness.

    Thanks,

    Pin-lock insert! It should make a big difference for you. They work very well. It's not a a coating - it's science! :-)

    Speaking of Pinlocks, mine slides down the shield a little bit, and it's just enough that a gap opens between the bottom of the pinlock and the visor, allowing condensation between them. I keep having to shove the pinlock up so it seals, but it just slides down again. Ideas?

    Thanks I appreciate it. Its cracking on both sides and they are spreading out. the pins have also become loose. Its weird as to why this has happened. I have no idea why this has happened.

    Just contacted Revzilla. New shield on the way. AWESOME SERVICE!.....I tell ya I was more than "slightly" bumbed out about paying for a $700 helmet and have this happen but the guy on the phone was first rate and very professional. Less than a few minutes on the phone and bam. New shield. Which is good because next week I ride to the MotoGP in Laguna Seca and I really needed it replaced.

    Thanks Anthony.

    RevZilla and Schuberth looked into my leaking pinlock issue, and Patrick got back to me today. The theory is that my Dudley DooRight chin puts pressure on the wind collar (the little velcroed piece up front) which not only made closing the chin guard a complicated maneuver involving both thumbs and four fingers, but which also made it difficult to close the visor to the snap lock position. Plus since I had to remove the pinlock several times to wipe the water out, the small silicon seal was not as effective as new.

    Patrick suggested removing the velcroed piece to give myself more clearance. As luck would have it, we had a pretty significant rain this afternoon and it seems to have made a difference. RevZilla is also replacing the pinlock in the hope that a newer silicon seal will prevent any recurrence of the leakage issue. The SRC dried out completely and is now working fine.

    Gawd I love these guys! :clap

    Now if they could just tell me a trick to keep the damned visor up till 50mph or so...

    I leave mine cracked open at the lowest setting. That way I get air in both the shield and the top vent. It was 104 here in Memphis yesterday and it worked great for me on the interstate doing 80 on my GSA.

    I'll second the great Mid South hot weather performance of the C3. On a three hour ride yesterday with the bike OAT showing 104 I was comfortable with the visor open to the first position. Well, the new Veskimo system also contributed to not dying in the brutal heat but the ventilation through the helmet certainly helped. Best helmet I've ever owned.

    wasn't there a discount for both the C3 and the Bluetooth package?

    I am heading out on the 23rd for Paonia, Magruder, St. Joe River, and beyond and my C2 sun visor utterly failed on me tonight...

    heading west from Nevada City (4 hours from NC to Mendo, unheard of!)
    the sunvisor lever just went 'GRIND" and then it fell down on any bump, and I rode Orr's Spring Rd and there are a lot of bumps

    [​IMG]

    I have a XL C2, Euro 61, 7 5/8s

    what size C3 would I get? Can I get a discount for the Bluetooth now? if not, I wait a long while for that.

    I need this before the 23rd, damned if I am heading west from CO doing the bullpuck I had to do tonight.

    Thanks, guys, gals!

    When you say open to the first position, how much of an opening is there? Mine will stay open about 1cm till 30mph, then shuts. The heat would have been a lot more bearable if that centimeter opening would stick around till about 50mph

    The visor opens up to about an inch at the first detent. It stays there until I close it. It provides a nice flow of air around my face to complement the flow over the top of my head.
