The C3 Pro is Schuberth’s completely redesigned upgrade to the older C3 flip-front. It has a brand new spoiler, redesigned inner liner for a better head fit, improved aerodynamics, and is quieter than ever.

Ever seen a European moto cop? Then you’ve seen a Schuberth helmet. For over 90 years, Schuberth has been making safety helmets for motorcycles, F1 racing, industrial safety and for the police and military. Their helmets have been known for being some of the most aerodynamic and quietest in the business and for integrating communication systems that works with MP3 players and phone GPS. This new C3 Pro is an update to the popular C3 flip-front.

The new ventilation system.

The Pro brings a new spoiler — it was designed in a wind tunnel and prevents lift at speeds over 100 miles an hour. It’s one of the quietest helmets in the world with only 82 decibels at 60mph. The ventilation system has been redesigned as well allowing for 60% more airflow over the older C3. The C3 Pro has a built in FM radio reception with two antennas for better reception and range. The SRC-System allows the rider to communicate with other SRC systems up to half-mile away.

The C3 Pro will be available this spring. Look for a review here in the near future.

    How is the fit compared to the regular C3? I am right in between a medium and a large of the C3, so interested in how this will fit.

    Do you guys think you’ll get the Shoei GT-Air to test. I’m interested because of the integrated sun visor as well as the fact that my initials are GT

        Sweet. If you could see if it fits in the fake gas tank on the NC700X that would be awesome!

      We do indeed have one coming… the helmets are due in country around the end of Feb. though, so be patient!

    I own a C3 and its one glaring fault is that the face shield won’t stay cracked open at speeds higher than 20 kph. After several years of putting up with this, I got a Neotec and what a breath of fresh air that was on hot summer days. It’ll be interesting to see if Schuberth fixed this problem.

      I bought one 6 months ago and it seems that problem is gone.
      very happy with how well the shield stays where I put it.

        Interesting, a friend bought a C3 last year and got a warranty replacement about three months later. Both helmets had that same problem with the visor, weak indents are the culprit.
