Schuberth C3Pro spitting water on my face

Love the helmet but in the rain I get water spitting on my face, not a lot but enough to bother me. Not heavy drops just tiny specs of water hitting around my nose area.

Anyone else have this problem or a solution. I make sure my vents are closed.

Typically only when the rain is heavy.

Mine does that if the face shield is not fully locked closed - on mine you need to put a fair amount of pressure on it to get it to click shut.

Yeah, it happened to me as well. Just make sure that the face shield is fully locked closed OP and see if the rain still gets in.

Rode thru rain several days this summer and had water all over the inside of shield to the point I had to pull over and wipe it down. Sent helmet back under warranty to have the seal replaced, the technician stated the shield mechanism were worn and leaving a gap. New mechanism and replacement shield provided. I have heard that the shields may not fit well and you may have to fit a few before you find a good match (not good at this price of helment). I have also felt air on my cheek from the pin lock, press the locks flush on the outside of shield helped. Currently in the dry season so don't know if the repair fixed the problem.

I bought the c3 then they came out with the C3 pro to fix the problems with the c3. Now they are coming out with the C3wggsmmfy(were gonna get some more money from you) version Look for it at those expensive boutiques where us dummies shop. Enjoy the quiet!

+3, or whatever. You should hear an audible "click" when it snaps into place. Without that last click I get water inside it. Properly closed its dryer and Quieter.

C3

Mine leaks quite a bit and it is fully snapped closed. I thought I was alone in this. Not good for a $600 lid.
