Schuberth C-3 Review
Finally had a chance to try out the new helmet today and I have to say I am very impressed with the Shuberth. My old helmet was a Nolan N102 which had served me very well over the last couple of years with my only complaint being it was very noisy, even with earplugs.
So after a trip to the bike show in Long Beach last month I picked up a new C-3 with the intergrated comm system that replaces the neck padding on the helmet, which is simply ingenious in my opinion.
So after a 3-hour ride this afternoon I am simply amazed at the difference between the 2 helmets. The C-3 is incredibly quiet, simply no comparison to the Nolan. Fit was a bit different with the N-3 though, seemed like much better interior padding which was very comfortable. The helmet though seemed to fit a bit lower on my head with the forehead padding resting a bit closer to my eyes than the Nolan. Not a deal breaker by any means, just something that I will have to get use to over time.
Airflow is simply superb! I never thought it was possible for a helmet to have such great air circulation. I could really feel air circulating all across the top and side of my head from the top vent and the front vent directed a very large quantity of air onto the inside of the face shield and face. Simply top-notch!
The comm system worked very well also. I have it connected to my GPS and phone and it worked flawlessly. With the helmet being as quiet as it is there were no problems in
hearing either device.
Anyway, just wanted to share my experience with my new helmet. The C-3 and comm isn't cheap, actually it's downright expensive, but definitely money well spent.
Initial Success, or Total Failure.
