Hey Mike,

I have spent a fair amount of time riding in sunglasses, flip downs and tinted shields in my days riding over the years.

I end up wearing sunglasses these days only on my Arai XD-3 becuase of the shape and I find myself wanting to ride with the shield up most of the time.

I have used flip downs on the C3, the Evoline as well as some of the Scorpions and the HJC Sy-Max 2.

The only issue that I have found with them is that sometimes, the mechanisms can be funky and not stay put and sometime the visors do not come down far enough past the bottom of your sight line.

The Schuberth C3 Helmet is a cable driven slider flip down visor system and the visor is anti-scratch / anti-fog I believe. It's slickly designed and the fact that there is no spring loaded element give me piece of mind that there is less chance of it breaking internally (Original HJC FS-15 was a culprit of this.)

Overall the Schuberth C3 Internal Visor is one of the better designed / performing / clear visioned ones.

Right now I don't beleive there are plans for graphic C3's in the states although Hi-Viz continues to be on the "Yes, someday soon" list. Soon is a relative term, but I don't think we will make it to Fall without seeing it in the states.

Thanks,

Anthony

Is it a replacement for a pair of sunnies or just a convenience? I have used tinted visors on our Shoei helmets and a good pair of glasses is streets ahead in giving clear vision, but the tinted visor offers some sunburn protection for the face which is convenient as I hate wearing sunscreen which would have to be worn at least on the chin with the schuberth I would have thought.

Thanks for your comments.

Edit: I am keen on the "World Pattern" white listed on the Schuberh website, and chance it's in the pipeline for the US?

I just wanted to thank the Guys over at Revzilla for my SRC order.

I ordered it on Sat through the web site and it was out of stock and showed a 5 day waiting period. Hey no problem, it's probably going to Schuberth for a drop ship. Look at the web site on Monday and they are back in stock, 24 hr shipping. So I wait and decide to give them a call today just to see if they have a date it might be going out.

A very nice gentlemen on the phones confirms my suspicion that my order went to Schuberth and that they did get an order in on Monday. He tells me to hold on for a second and comes back and says, we are going to cancel your order from Schuberth and send it out from here today, you should have it by Sat.

Now how cool is that!!!!!

I love it when CSR service is king. They did not need to go through that trouble for me, but they did and that is what counts.

Anthony, plan on seeing me and a couple of my buddies next Friday down at the store to buy some gear. This just made up my mind as to who I am getting my new suit from.

thanks

Schuberth C3W Set to Arrive by March 1.

Hi Everyone,

We just got word the Schuberth C3W Helmet, Women's C3 will be arriving in the next week or so. The key difference is the comfort liner and shape which is more ergonomic specifically for a female bone structure.

The soonest it will begin shipping will be early next week.

Keeping yalls in the loop. (Someone bet me $5 I couldn't work "yalls" into a conversation today, ha!)

Best,

Anthony

I would love to know the answer to this question.

I would dial in the HAM Radio at RevZilla and chat it up with Adventure riders all day. Could be more of a time sink than the regular internet.

Leon, I don't have the answer, but I have faith in our ADV brethren.
