So that rectangular piece in the supplied liner is what folds in or out to cover the holes for winter riding? Does the replacement have anything to cover them?

Reading the webBikeWorld review of the C3Pro, they classify it as shaped slightly to the inverse-egg side of neutral, implying that the decreased abduction rate comes from the poor seal formed around the bottom and resulting 'booming' turbulence noise on those with egg-shaped heads.

Correct, the 1x 1 (rough guess) Grey square in the standard liner was designed to keep cool air from seeping through to riders heads. The optional replacement crown liner does not have one. It relies on the open/close mechanism on the top vent. How effective the Grey square (for lack of a better term) is, will be subjective. If a rider is sensitive to cooler temperatures, it will come into play more.

The C3 and C3 Pro are both on the round side. I have an intermediate oval headshape (Im an egg-head ) and neither helmet fits me well. I have a lot of space in back of the neckroll. If the helmet does not fit evenly throughout the crown, cheeks and neck the rider will undoubtedly hear heavy buffeting / turbulence at speed.

Thanks again for your responses. Sorry my attempt to continue the alien joke was a bit too dry for a forum discussion, just wanted to recognize your contribution. ;-)

Do you happen to know what Schuberth would say about applying stickers to a helmet, if that might somehow void a warranty or something? I heard aftermarket paint can damage a helmet by chemically altering the shell and just wanted to be sure the same wouldn't be claimed for reflective safety stickers...

In no way did I feel alienated by your last joke.

For the most part, stickers will not void Schuberth's warranty.

Schuberth basically asks riders to use their best judgement. If the sticker's glue contains a strong solvent that could potentially eat through the helmet's clear coat, proceed with caution. However, if the sticker isn't anything out of the ordinary, stick away!

Also, any issues caused by a sticker's placement are not covered. For example: If you placed a sticker on the top vent and the sticker's glue melted into the vent's cracks, preventing the vent from opening / closing, it's not covered.

Let me know if I can help with anything else!

Schuberth c3 pro vs laser monaco carbon

My daughter needs a new helmet and we have narrowed it down to the C3 Pro for women and the lazer monaco carbon. She presently has a Nolan N90 and feels it is a tank (she picks up either my Nexx XR1R carbon or my Lazer falcon carbon and gets very jealous). My wife has a C3 so she has some idea about the Schuberth (she will be trying one on shortly). Lazer helmets are not something that you can find to try so I wanted to get your opinion about one vs the other, weight, fit, comfort, noise, etc. Either way I am buying them from you and I would prefer not to buy both for her to try on and send one back.

She rides a Triumph Bonneville without a windscreen but is considering adding one. Thanks

Hey cruisincruzan,

Below is a picture of a C3 Pro Women's helmet (Medium = 3lbs 10.2oz) and LaZer Monaco Carbon (Medium = 3lbs 5.6oz). Please excuse my poor camera skills.

C3 Pro Women's (Medium) vs LaZer Monaco Carbon (Medium) photo 20140414_104917_zpsef3dc23f.jpg

Ounce for ounce, the Monaco is 4.6oz lighter. Side by side, the Schuberth is noticeably smaller in overall size. The Monaco has a larger overall profile and should feel heavier at speed due to wind resistance without a windshield.

From a fit and comfort standpoint, the Monaco runs narrow, while the Women's C3 Pro is slightly round (based on my intermediate oval head shape). For riders with narrow faces, the Monaco should also be more comfortable. I found the C3 to be more forgiving around the jawbone. The C3's interior liner and cheek pads felt thicker and more dense compared to the Monaco. Thicker interior liners will add weight, but also have a more forgiving fit after break-in. Finally, I had more chinbar room in the Schuberth. My chin was very close to the Monaco's chinbar and I'm no Jay Leno...although I'd like to own his garage(s), hah.

Which helmet is quieter? The helmet that fits your daughter's head shape best will most likely be the quietest, because it will seal around her head better. I noticed the Monaco was a bit squeaky when manipulating the chinbar. However, this is mostly due to the Monaco being a pure carbon shell and not a composite blend.

This is personal preference but, one of my favorite things about the Monaco is the Lumino Photochromic Transitions faceshield with Pinlock. However, if your daughter is sensitive to the sun, she may need something darker. The Lumino shield transitions to a Smoke tint. Some riders need Dark Smoke to be completely comfortable.

Give me a shout if you have any more questions or if I can snap a few more pictures (I can use the practice).

Ride safely,

-HVB
