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.

Shoei Neotec Helmet


Video at the end of the post.  Any thoughts on modular helmets?  I like this new Neotec as I wear Shoei and the sun visor is a nice addition. 

Modular design: 360-degree Pivot Locking System employs stainless steel jaws that wrap around stainless steel pegs, securing the EPS-lined chinbar in the down position. Large, front-of-helmet release button is easy to manipulate while wearing riding gloves. Smooth, single-handed up/down action.

CNS-1 shield: Noticeably wider and taller than the previous CX-1V of the still-available Multitec, this injection-molded faceshield provides a broad, clear field of vision. Changing shields is a snap with the new Neotec-exclusive QR-N baseplate. Included anti-fog Pinlock insert is likewise easy to install and effective, but, technically, is illegal for night use because it does not meet VESC-8 light-transmission standards.

Ventilation: Large shutter-type lower chin vent is effective and can be opened or closed while wearing even thick gloves. Same goes for upper intake (three positions) and exhaust vents. Deep channels molded into dual-layer EPS liner move cooling air through the helmet.
