    Hi Be Rad,

    Thanks for reaching out.

    If you have any questions about measuring helmet size correctly, check out the video at the bottom.

    Sit on your couch as long as you like in it, but don't take it on the road - if it hits the road we can't take it back!

    With regard to exchanging, you send it back to us and we'll ship the size exchange to you for free! We offer free shipping on the first order as well.

    If you want to do a flat out return for cash to your card, we do 90% to your card and 10% back in store credit. We used to have a 10% restock fee to help with free shipping and processing fees, but we did away with it in 2010 and now give you it all back. The 10% credit never expires. We try to be very fair.

    We do offer $30 in TeamZilla Cash back on a C3 toward your next order.

    In our opinion NO ONE has perfected the FM radio feature. I don't love it on anything in the market right now. That being said, when I spend more time in the SRC System it may end up better, and I will update here, but for the time being, the FM radio is not the reason to buy ANY comm unit on the market SRC or beyond. Bluetooth and Bike-To-Bike is great though.

    The upside to the SRC is that it fits perfectly with the helmet and integrates the C3 neck roll which is the key feature in providing the quiet levels. It is also made by Cardo and compatible with the Cardo Q2 and Cardo G4. If mounted externally like a Q2 or G4 you would now have a noisemaking component throwing off the whole value of the helmet.

    The downside of the SRC is that the 300 meter range is not as great as the Q2 or G4 due to a lack of external antenna. Its a tradeoff like anything else.

    Let me know what other questions I could answer for you. Happy to do so.

    Best,

    Anthony

    Hi Jim,

    Going up a size is not the move, it just sets you up for a bad experience over time as it breaks in. The only way to know for sure would be to order your correct size or come by and see if it works. ( that is not me trying to get you to pull the trigger over the internets)

    Update on the Long Oval: After some more monkeying today, the Arai profiel guy on TeamZilla (Chris) ended up taking the winter chin curtain (yes there are two) out and it seemed to work for him in a medium. I think that he was reaching a bit on it, but we shall see after a few weeks of riding if it truly is the best fit or if hes just too damn narrow and even he cant "will" it to fit.

    I will keep you posted.

    Hey Guys,

    We just finished the production on the Schuberth C3 Helmet Video Review. We did it in two parts. We shot it in one continuous take but in the end had to roll it into two videos to make it more digestible.

    Both of these Videos are shot in HD and can be watched in full screen if you connection is fast enough. Youtube unfortunately shows a crappy thumbnail on this page.

    Glad I could get this up quickly for everyone.

    :rofl

    No bullsh*t, I have about 25 of them. All navy except for about 3 charcoals from our first batch - I have charcoal on today, ironically.

    The jeans are what you should be worrying about, Jim.

    My wife wouldn't go for the "laundry every night" thing, although it would be sweet.

    I have a C2 I sourced from Germany a few years back. If I remember correctly, it recommended to purchase one size larger than I use in other brands . Large verses medium. Any such advice floating around n theC3?

    Hey Anthony,

    Thanks for doing those videos, I found them very informative, especially the second one. You mention you have a video about the SRC communicator, would you post that one too?

    Thanks :thumb

    Me, too. My Profile fits perfectly and I really like it, but I wanted the convenience of a flip-face helmet. C'est la vie.

    Does sizing on the C2 translate directly to a C3?
    I heard that they made the C3 more oval.

    Love my C2 but its getting old almost 4 now!

    BTW most safety organizations I have read say a white helmet is the most visible. Doubt these studies were done when hi Viz was available tho.

    Based on the fact that my expensive C2 bacame unusable after a fall off the seat of my GS (within the first few months of ownership), I wouldn't think of trying the C3 at any cost (well maybe if it was in the price range of the Japanese DOT flip ups.

    And also based on that same fall, I'm glad I didn't have to depend on it in a real crash.

    My 2 cents

    God I love this helmet. Picked it up along with the integrated blue tooth collar when I was in Europe. I've had some nice helmets in my time but if it fit's your head the Schuberth C3 is simply the best touring helmet in the world.

    It's nice that you're making them available here. Will you have the white one with the graphics?

    Hi RJ,

    In my experience my medium C3 fits and I consider myself a typical medium intermediate oval head. I wear a medium in Arai, Shoei and Shark. I would say that the C3 sizing is in line with premium competitors sizing if you have a intermediate oval or intermediate round oval head shape.

    If you have an extreme round or extreme long oval head you may have to go up in size, and even then there is no guarantee's. If you are an extreme in either direction this is probably not the ideal helmet to buy without trying it on.

    Feel free to ping me on anything else.

    Hi Nesbo,

    The C3 will fit along the lines of the C3 RF-1000. Modulars typically fit a hair bigger than their fixed face counterparts, so I could see how a M would work vs an L in the 1000.

    At 22 inches you are a 55.8 cm which is on the low end of a medium, though. This is a bit of a dilemma. There are many folks out there wearing a helmet a size too big.

    The C3 is an intermediate oval shape.

    Worst case you order (we ship free) a M and if it is too small, send it back and we will ship you the new size for free as well.

    For the level of investment, you want it to fit perfect. My gut is a medium will work.

    Hey Eagle,

    From everything I have seen and heard so far the C3 seems to be an updated shape with it a slightly more round approach to your typical intermediate oval (Shoei, Arai) vs the previous round shape that fits more closely to an HJC or Nolan.

    I am a Medium in the C3 and also am a med in the Arai XD-3, RX-Q, Shoei RF-1100 and Qwest.

    The C3 is closest to the Arai RX-Q and Shoei Qwest which are basically medium ovals with slightly more room in the temples and sides.

    Does that answer your question?

    Looking good Fox in your Cayenne Pro and C3!

    Not sure about the Graphics, at this point I would rather see the Hi-Viz come in.

    I will keep everyone posted. Be sure to check back.
