New SCHUBERTH C3 Pro


Remember to take a look at our 2013 F800GS picture page!  We add new one’s every so often!  Up in the header is the link…;-)

January 26, 2013 – Schuberth announces the C3 Pro and C3 Pro Women, said to be “The First High Speed Flip-Up Helmet with Internal Antenna”.

Does this excite you?  Including the intercom system this will be an over $1000 helmet….is your head worth it?  Is this all hype? 

I personally like the built in antenna for the Scala communications device.  Seamless….we like! LOVE the PINK….Not!

We’ll have a C3 Pro with the Schuberth SRCS (Schuberth Rider Communications System) Bluetooth intercom system soon for a review (here’s the Schuberth C3 review), in the meantime, here’s an edited press release, photos and a video from Schuberth:

  • Aerodynamics: Rear spoiler adds 8% additional downforce for greater stability at higher speeds.
  • Aero-Acoustics: Reduced noise measured at 82 dB(A) is said by Schuberth to be their quietest flip-up helmet ever.
  • Ventilation: New vent scoop increases airflow to over 2.5 gallons per second.
  • Comfort: New plush liner materials enhance comfort and fit.
  • Communications: Internal dual band antenna improves SRCS wireless connectivity.

Schuberth C3 Pro Details

Light, quiet, compact – these features have characterized the Schuberth C3 flip-up helmet for years. Now Schuberth is presenting a completely updated premium partner to the base model C3: the C3 Pro.

The C3 Pro features a molded rear spoiler developed in the Schuberth wind tunnel for minimizing buffeting at higher speed riding. The internal antenna and Bluetooth receiver enhance the communication range up to 1/2 mile and FM radio reception for the Schuberth Rider Communication System.

The refined inner lining offers a plush, comfortable fit. The new vent scoop boosts airflow through the helmet to over 2.5 gallons of air per second at 65 mph.

With a wind tunnel tested sound rating of just 82 dB(A), the C3 Pro is the quietest Schuberth helmet ever. The C3 Pro and women-specific fit C3 Pro Women flip-up helmet features over 20 additional enhancements and will be available this spring.

Based on additional research, the C3 Pro Women is specially fitted for a woman’s facial structure, featuring a special contour and materials in the cheek pads to better fit a woman’s higher cheek bones, narrower jaw and smaller facial features.

C3 PRO with SRC-S System and Antenna

The easy-to-install, fully integrated Schuberth Rider Communication System (SRCS C3 Pro) plugs into the C3 Pro’s internal antenna for improved FM radio reception and pairing distance of up to 1/2 mile.

Difference Between Standard and Pro SRCS Intercoms

The SRCS from the standard C3 will fit into the C3 Pro and will function normally, but since it does not plug into the helmet’s antenna, it will not offer the improved reception that can be expected from the new SRCS C3 Pro.

The SRCS C3 PRO does not offer backward compatibility to the C3. While it will physically fit, there is no internal antenna, so Bluetooth connectivity and radio reception are not possible.

Schuberth C3 Pro Pricing and Colors

C3 Pro Pricing: Solid Colors $769.00. Hi-Viz $799.00. SRCS for the C3 Pro $429.

C3 Pro Colors: Glossy Black, Matte Black, Glossy Silver, Glossy White, Hi-Viz Yellow.

C3 Pro Women Colors: Pearl White, Pearl Pink, Matte Black, Silver.

  1. Buying a helmet much resembles buying shoes. It is a personal item, so you’d be happy in a Shoei or in a AGV, a Nolan or the one from Walmart. There are a few things you should considder before buying a helmet.

    For instance “how many heads do I have and how much do I like it?” and how frequent am I going to use this helmet. Do I only go for a short spin on a sunny day or am I an all year rider in wind & weather?
    The Schuberth C2 I am using proved to be worth the investment of $$$ and frequent use in all weather. It lived up to the expectations of a premium brand helmet and needs replacement after the upcoming season. The C3 Pro is a serious contender based on the C2 experience.

  2. Bought a C3 last year and have to say it is my favorite helmet. As a glasses wearer I need a modular. Tried many, but the Schuberth ended up to be the best. Just to be clear there is no such thing as an absolute quiet helmet. In high winds or high speeds I still cannot hear my music clearly but at normal speeds the music is clear.

    Pluses of this helmet is that it is light, quiet, and well vented. Is it worth the money? I will know if I crash and it saves my life. That is the true test in my books.

    • Good point about the crashing….one really never knows unless tested lol but your head is worth every penny you think it is…for some that might not be a lot….i think many rather have a new pipe than a good helmet..or more chrome

  3. I like the idea of a prewired helmet, it was a bit of a job to wire my Sena headset into my Icon Variant helmet, all of the padding had to come out and what a faff to get it back in properly. You do generally get what you pay for and the C3 looks like a top of the range helmet.
