Shell material: S.T.R.O.N.G. fibre
The outer shell of the C3 Pro is offered in two helmet shell sizes and combines an aerodynamically optimal shape with excellent protection. It is manufactured using Schuberth's typical compression molding process and thus permits great stability and a low weight.
Helmet shell technology from SCHUBERTH permits low weight
Glass fibre with a special resin added is compressed in a vacuum at high pressure to form a helmet shell which is exceptionally sturdy.
The helmet shell of special EPS foam is modular in design to ensure optimal shock absorption. This complex segmentation guarantees enhanced force absorption and distribution and maximum safety.
Made of specially optimized EPS foam
Complex multizone foaming allows optimal shock absorption
A special inner lining of the C3 Pro which was developed according to the innovative Comfort Fit concept ensures that the helmet fits comfortably and securely in all situations. The combination of carefully selected COOLMAX® and Thermocool® materials and the additional use of Interpower® coatings also make the inner lining a highly-effective moisture removal and cooling system.
COOLMAX® pad system, completely removable and washable (hand wash, 30°C)
Variable for effective ventilation
Adjustable for summer/winter
Removable comfort cheek pads and head band pads
Precise setting of the chinstrap length through adjustment on both sides.
Micro-lock ratchet lock
The silver-coloured appliqués of reflective material which are in included in the nape zone of every SCHUBERTH helmet ensure that the motorcyclist can be seen better, especially in twilight or at night.
Improved visibility = Enhanced safety
Enhancement of the passive safety
Early recognition by other road users
Guaranteed condensation-free thanks to its double glazing technology
"City position" for maximum ventilation while traveling slowly
The EasyChange visor mechanism makes changing visors extremely quick
Change of visor without tools
Integrated sun visor:
The sun visor enables quick and individual adjustment according to light conditions. It is integrated into the helmet shell and can be swiveled.
The C3 Pro has been specially designed for the riding posture on normal and sportive tours and also remains stable in the airflow at high speeds (> 160 km/h). The special shape of the helmet shell with an integrated spoiler plus an aerodynamically optimised straight end edge ensure appreciably enhanced downforce. Even at higher speeds the C3 Pro develops practically no upward lift. The C3 Pro also offers reduced wind resistance and optimised directionally stability. With closed machines, the buffeting is also significantly minimized.
Perfected aerodynamics for higher speeds
Upward lift = 0!
No oscillatory tendency
Spoiler integrated into the helmet shell
Aeroacoustics of the C3 Pro:
A quiet helmet means active safety for the motorcyclist: this permits the rider to concentrate on riding – particularly at higher speeds.
Many hours in the Schuberth acoustics wind tunnel have ensured that the C3 Pro is quiet. The comprehensive acoustics package with optimised helmet shell, wind deflector and ergonomic shape of the neck padding make the C3 Pro – at 82 dBA – one of the quietest helmets of all.
Acoustics package makes helmet quiet
Installation of a wind deflector enables the aeroacoustics and consequently the noise level to be improved still further.
Only 82dB(A) at 100 km per hour (with naked bikes)
Sound intensity is a phenomenon which can be explained logarithmically/mathematically. A 10 dB(A) jump in noise level is perceived by the human ear as a doubling of the noise level. Conversely a drop of 10 dB(A) is perceived as a halving of the noise level. Physically these changes in the perceived noise level already occur at an increase or decrease of 6 dB (A). This means that the increase/decrease in the physical load is higher than the one perceived.
Aeroacoustics are influenced by:
the position of the helmet in the air flow, depending on the driver's size and riding posture and the motorcycle's fairing
Fit of the helmet: differences in the anatomy of the wearer's head, neck and shoulder areas
change the position of the windscreen
close the gap at the bottom of the helmet, e.g. using a scarf
Innovative ventilation system
The C3 Pro is equipped with a further development of the proven C3 ventilation system. Thanks to the new design of the ventilation elements, the supply of fresh air is increased by up to 60%. The combination of multipath channels in the EPS foam shell and the head/chin/mouth ventilation ensure that fresh air is distributed effectively over the entire head area. The air channels in the inner shell direct the air which enters through the forehead ventilation well over the back of the head to the rear of the helmet. The low pressure prevailing at the rear of the helmet ensures that the internal air is constantly extracted through the air outlets and the special netting in the neck padding.
Head ventilation input (adjustable in multiple stages)
Chin vent for targeted distribution of the incoming air in the helmet
Up to 9 litres of fresh air at 100 km/h
The highly effective ventilation system of the C3 Pro
Variable pad system
Adjustable head ventilation
Active 2-way air extraction system
EPS shell with ventilation segments
In cold weather it often occurs that with closed air supply the motorcyclist's neck zone becomes sealed off by hoods, scarves or neckerchiefs.
The concentration of carbon dioxide inside the helmet is a key safety criterion for preventing symptoms of fatigue and the thinning of breathable air.
No negative effects on health need be feared as long as the CO2 concentration remains below 3.5 %.
The maximum level of CO2 concentration at the workplace is 0.5 %
Even when the neck zone is sealed off by hoods, scarves or neckerchiefs, this helmet guarantees that the CO2 concentration remains below the 0.5% limit as from a speed of approx. 30 km/h.
In cases where the helmet is completely sealed off by hoods, scarves or neckerchiefs, the visor ought to be opened (city-travel position) for safety reasons when idling, for example at traffic lights, or traveling slowly.
The C3 Pro is by default equipped to accommodate the SCHUBERTH SRC-System™ C3 Pro. To guarantee ideal radio reception for you, the C3 Pro is already equipped with two integrated antennas to boost reception and a Bluetooth® connection
Optimum reception at all times
Bluetooth® antenna for wireless mobile, GPS and intercom connections to other SRC-System™ owners.
FM and Bluetooth® antennas integrated into the helmet for optimum reception

Great Helmet - Concours Rider

Pros: Very Comfortable
Cons: Mouth ventalation
I have been wearing a HJC AC 11 for several years and wanted a more comfortable modular helmet.. Shopped and tried different helmets on for two years. Finally decided the C3 Pro was the best of the best even with the high price. Feels like a pillow on your head compared to other helmets. Some of the first things I noticed after driving for an hour is no pressure points and my head and neck were not near as tired as with my previous helmet due to light weight and aerodynamics. I did notice higher wind noise then with my previous helmet and found if I tilted the helmet down lower in the front on my head and raised my windshield slightly it really reduced the wind noise. You can really feel air moving when you open top vent. Ventalation around mouth is not as good as previous helmet as it had mouth vent and side vents. Noticed I can leave face shield closed but not pushed to seal position and ventalation improves greatly without noise increase. Quality is outstanding. The comfort and the feeling of no head tiredness after several hours at high speed is what I really like about this helmet.

Pros: Light, great ventilation, built-in sun visor, quality
Cons: Clear visor a bit loose
I have had SHOEI's for a long time and was hesitant to change brands every brand has a different fit for an individual. The need to get full use of the features of my R1200RT communications package required me to buy a Schuberth, either C3 or C3 Pro even though the BMW communicator does not need the Pro's built in antenna. I went with the C3 Pro because its improved fit chin strap does not strangle you and more forehead space. Initially it felt a bit too snug, but after a couple of hour-long rides, IT FITS PERFECTLY Its lighter weight and MUCH improved ventilation are enough reasons to get this helmet. Everything else the built-in sun visor--which is great--the cool design, and the high tech features built in blue tooth antenna, communicators, nice removable lining, etc. are bonuses. As a hopefully useful guideline I am XL in SHOEI and the Schuberth XL 7-58 fits me just as well.

Pros: Everything Claimed About This Helmet
Cons: None We Know We're pending Bug Buck For The Bet
I see many reviews where people claim the helmet has to be broken in. I think it's just as much as our head getting getting used to broken into the helmet. I found the sizing of Schuberths to be snug for my average intermediate oval head I had to go up one size from normal and fits very closely to my head. I guess this means that when buying premium, you'll get a helmet that truly fits. I found that everything claimed in reviews about this helmet to be fact, not hype, so no need for me to repeat that here.So far, with the weather we've been having- we all know how that will change, I have not needed to use the included Pinlock.Call me paranoid, but I removed the front and back Schuberth graphics lettering & logo, and the tiny ones on either side of the inside front, as a theft deterrent.If you have the dollar to pend, don't hesitate putting this premium brain aver at the top of your helmet lit.
