Schuberth C3 Pro Reviews

Anybody have any experience with this modular? Tried the regular C3 & found it ran about about one size smaller than my regular brand Arai. Any ride reviews would be most welcome.

I have never had a Schuberth but they sure do look nice.
I have found Revzilla's video guides to be pretty helpful.......Here is one of their video reviews explaining Schuberth's sizing.







In the end - I just can't make myself spend $700 on a helmet. I fully understand that it will be well worth it IF IT PROTECTS your melon better than a lesser price helmet. Please give us a review if you decide to roll on this helmet.

I've had mine since this last spring and like it a lot.
Very quiet - good venting, drop down sun shield is nice, build quality is top notch.
With Arai helmets I wear an XL but found the 2XL was a better fit with the Schuberth. Mine is the Hi-Viz yellow - cost $800 - worth it (IMO).

Same here, Arai XL but tried a Schuberth C3 in XL & almost couldn't get it off. FUP, do you have the C3 or CE Pro?

I liked it, but not enough to choose it over the Neotec I just picked up.

Did you ride with both of them? I wound up getting the Neotec because of a really great price. I love the helmet but it is definitely A LOT louder than the C3. I always wear earplugs so it doesn't affect me that much, but even with plugs the roar of the wind noise gets irritating after a few hours in the saddle. Next lid will probably be the C3.

Yup - during a couple of Ducati test rides - including freeway. I notice no difference between it and my Multitec, and my Neotec is a little quieter than the Multitec, but that's probably because I have the SMH10R on it (the SMH10 was on the Multitec).
