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?

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.
