    Anyone with a Schuberth C3 Pro lid?

    Looking for something newer and more comfy for long journeys and the Schuberth C3 Pro seems to get some good reviews.  Anyone got one?  Good or not worth the cash?

    Cheers,
    Dom.

    I'm very happy with mine - light, quiet and comfy.  Only downside IMHO is that the Pinlock shield tends to fog a little round the edges in cold weather.  I had the same problem with my old C3 basic, but I think that's more about the shield than the helmet.

    FWIW, I also have the Sena 10U headset, which integrates with the helmet and has a stubby, rather than boom,  microphone and a separate remote mounted on the handlebar.

    Yes, I do own a C3 Pro, not very much difference compared to the normal C3, it even has less air flow (great in winter, bad in summer), but I do have a Schuberth head, it fits like a....glove  :084:
    The chin strap is not that comfy for me (pushes on that bone in your throat) but no problem when wearing a scarf-thing the helmet is very quiet.
    I'm not sure I would buy it again, it is a pricy helmet, although it looks great.

    I had a C2 and now a C3 pro. as Superjeep says, not that much difference between them. As for noise seems about the same as the Shoei I had. It is very quiet in clean air flow but the same as most others when it's not. I had it sized for me at a Schuberth dealer and it is comfortable, but no more so than other correctly sized make of lid. I (personally) think it is overpriced and overhyped. But just my opinion.

    Thanks for the feedback all.  I want to get a flip lid so will look at a few others out there before making a decision  :002:

    Good but for round heads... low noise, light and confi. The only issue, if I can say issue, is that the pinlock anti-fog could be wider. The inside liner is good and not so hot in summer, better than the Shoei.
    Try it before buy, because sizes seems different from other brands.

    In answer to the 'pricey' comments, I agree, but did not pay RRP on either of my Schuberth lids.  The C3 Pro was sourced from www.motolegends.com, who will beat any competitive price in the EU by 10%, so I paid £360.  Not sure what the release of the C4 is doing to C3 Pro prices.

    I have had one for a while,Generally I am pleased with the helmet, It being the second Schuberth Helmet, Not cheap but they are well discounted if you shop around, My only moan is for some reason both helmets leave your hair  all wavy and pretty it annoys me.But Quiet every part works well, and as I said not cheap but how do you value your head.
