I agree wholeheartedly. Your helmet is one of the most important pieces of gear a rider wears and not a place to skimp on quality. If your budget allows, some quality brands to check out are Arai, Shoei, Bell, Shark and Schuberth.

Question

Hi Ali,

Just a few days after I finally gave up on my old C3 helmet in favor of the fit on my Arai Signet-Q, I heard about the new C3 Pro with a redesigned liner for a more comfortable fit!

Do you know if this new liner is likely to make the C3 fit better on people like me who have a Signet-Q head shape? Or is it a minor change to "comfort", not actual "fit" (if you know what I mean) that's not likely to make a difference?

Thanks...

Hi Guy,

Nearly every aspect of the C3 Pro has been upgraded over the original C3. Schuberth paid particular attention to fitting shape in this iteration, and while I would not call the C3 Pro long oval, it is definitely more accommodating for folks who have a more intermediate oval head shape. They were able to achieve this by eliminating the large rubber flap that closed off the vent holes at the forehead and replace them with the same "cat ears" we saw first on the S2 comfort liner. The new lining is also incredibly plush and allows for more give if you happen to have a more pronounced forehead. For every person who tried on our sample in our office, every one of them complimented Schuberth for the improvement on fit.
Keep in mind, your Arai Signet Q is the longest oval helmet we offer, so if that is one of the only helmets you can wear comfortably, you still might find the new Schuberth a little short, but it is certainly leaps and bounds better than its predecessor.

Cheers,
Ali

Thanks for the response, Ali. One follow-up question if you don't mind: If I put an S2 liner in my C3, would the fit be the same as a C3 Pro?

If so, that could be a good way for me to figure out if the C3 Pro will work for my head...

Hi Bete,

I wouldn't classify any modular helmet as long oval, but the Shoei Neotec is as close as it gets. It also is a fantastic modular and well worth checking out.

Cheers,
Ali

Hey Guy,

Yes, you can actually put either the C3 Pro or the S2 liner in your C3 to check fit. You might also consider removing that large rubber flap that closes off the vents from the inside to give you more room. You can still shut the vents from the outside and the small flaps built into the new comfort liner can complete the seal, if you ever find the need.
In all honesty, I'm not sure why Schuberth found it necessary to put that rubber flap on the inside of the helmet to begin with. It seems like it has caused more fit issues than it is worth (but did make it fun to Google "Mark of the Schuberth"). I've ridden in temperatures sub 20 degrees plenty of times and never found the need to close off the vents from the inside.
Like I mentioned earlier, if the Arai Signet Q provides the best fit for your head shape, I think you'll be unhappy with the fit of the C3 / C3 Pro in the long run.

Cheers,
Ali

FYI, we have a comprehensive review of the Schuberth C3 World and the SRC system in the spring issue of Overland Journal.

VERY impressive helmet.

The Signet-Q is the most comfortable helmet I've ever had on my head.
I wear an XL in the Signet-Q, or a XXL in pretty much anything else.
Currently wearing an XXL XD-4 with thicker cheekpads and a thin foam shim in both sides of the removable main liner.

Seems the Signet-Q is in a league of its own, with respect to shape.
I'd love a **quality** dual sport or MX helmet in a Signet-Q fit.

Everyone's coconut is shaped different. Mine is a match for the C3, and now the C3 Pro. And I'm sure yours is happy with the Signet-Q.
