I bought the Schuberth Concept helmet new in 2000, and yes, I am still using it. I have been waiting for Schuberth to come back.

I wonder if they are sized the same.

Arai sizes their mediums at 57-58mm, but Schuberth sizes their medium 56-57mm. My C3 is a little snug, but I'm expecting it to pack down after a few days of riding to be just right. According to Schuberth's sizing chart, their large is 58-59 which I know is too big for me. The medium and large use the same size shell so if the medium doesn't pack down enough for me I'll buy a thinner liner and swap them out.

bottom line is measure your head and buy the right size by your head's circumference.
Which Arai are you wearing that you're a Med. in?

Corsair RX7 - the predecessor to the Corsair V in the current Arai lineup.

You are correct the Schuberth will fit a hair small as their medium range ends a CM smaller than the Arai or Shoei at 57 for the Schuberth, vs 58 for the two former lids.

Also you are correct on the shell sizing, if you do not get to the desiered comfort post break-in you can always swap the comfort liner.

As far as your local guy goes, support the heck out of him. I give him a lot for credit for stocking such a high-end product. We 100% have out Philly contingent that supports us locally. The internet is a different animal altogether.

Best,

Anthony
thanks Anthony, you're a good guy!

Quiet compared to what? I've found precisely zero flip-ups that are as quiet as traditional full face helmets. For instance, I currently use both a Shoei Multi-Tec and an RF-1000. The RF is exponentially quieter than the MT.

I've got an older Schuberth. Good helmet except for the "pop-forward" method of venting the face shield. As soon as you do that, the noise goes up by a mile AND the face shield vibrates so much it affects vision. Does this new Schuberth have the same face shield venting method?

Not to mention the real bottom line: PRICES. Your website has them listed at $699. Why should I buy a C3 when I can get an Arai for $200 less?

More importantly, will replacement face shields be available for more than 60 days after the helmets hit our shores?
Hi, just wondered if you could address these questions... the C3 interests me, so I'm curious as to the answers. Thanks.

I too am planning to get a new helmet for next season. My last couple of helmets have been Nolans.
Does any one have Nolan and C3 real life experiance?
How does the C3 compare with the 102 or 103
with respect to:
noise
cooling
fit
any other comments

Thanks

Hey VT,

It has been quite some time since I have been in a Nolan, but aside from the nuances, I would imagine the Nolan will be much more round compared to the Schuberth. I would imagine the Schuberth would be quieter, but to what degree I am not sure.

Interested in hearing about airflow.

Schuberth C3w and Matte Black

Hey Guys,

I just got word the Schuberth C3W Womens Helmet and the Matte Black C3 should be in stock within the next few days. Also the Carbon fiber will not be around until the Spring is still the word we are getting.

As mentioned previously, the C3w has a different internal structure for head and face shape. IT also uses some light high-density foam in areas which should have a custom feel.

Schuberth teamed with L'Oreal to design specifically for the anatomical differences between male and female head-shape.

Best,

Anthony

Quiet and light, man. Quiet and light :-)

The everyday rider will enjoy them, but the long distance rider will be spoiled for good on these. They really minimize neck fatigue and almost bring a serenity back to the ride, even at highway speed though the lack of buffeting, howling and overall noise.

I do, however, very much respect your opinion. They are quite an investment.

Anthony

C2 vs. C3 sizing?

This question was asked before, and not really answered (yet)...

I have a C2, which I consider the best helmet I've owned, and want the new C3. Can anyone say with experience how the sizing compares between the two models?

My C2 is a XL. As it's four+ years old and well worn, it's a bit loose. Is the C3's sizing going to fit "tighter" than the C2, or "looser"?

In my experience, my C3 feels looser than the C2 of the same size, maybe because the C2 kind of squeezes my cheeks a bit and the C3 does not.
