Schuberth C3 Hi-Viz Yellow Helmet The Schuberth C3 is the helmet of choice for the ultimate sporting adventure. Thanks to its compact dimensions, this new premium flip-up helmet from Schuberth has no serious rivals on the market. With its unique synthesis of sportiness and comfort, its previously unheard-of noise level of 84 dB(A) at 65 mph sets new benchmarks for the industry as a whole. The helmet is made of S.T.R.O.N.G fiber, a special glass-fiber reinforced Duroplast matrix and is available in two helmet shell sizes The Schuberth C3 Helmet in the High Visibility color scheme is a great choice for those where safety is the number one concern.

Deciding on the correct size for mail order without being able to try one on was my greatest issue, but the fit turned out to be spot on. After a few hours wearing it seemed a perfect fit, which has continued for the year or so that I have been using it. It is really comfortable compared with any other helmet I have used and I find I can wear it all day if required without too much discomfort. Ventilation is OK, but in a hot Australian summer a lttle more airflow would be useful (I note the new C3Pro model has increased airflow). Also lateral visibility is a little more restricted than some other helmets I have owned. The pinlock anti-fog visor works really well in cooler temps. The yellow hi viz is highly effective in increasing your safety. It is also by far the quietest helmet I have used - this is due to a combination of the thick lining material and aerodynamic design which reduces wind noise on my machine anyway (BMW F800ST), at useful speeds. Of course as speed increases so does wind noise, but I don't think you could improve on this helmet in that regard (except for the new C3Pro, on which I see they have further reduced the noise levels#. I have also successfully fitted my Sena SMH-10 bluetooth system to the helmet via the stick-on housing #the more secure clamp option for the Sena won't fit on this helmet (see the Q&A section below). Overall a great helmet, not cheap but definitely one of the safest choices available. Very highly recommended.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I'm 189 cms and 85 kilos and 52 Long fit me perfectly. Just received these pants and haven't yet worn them on the road but I can tell they are going to be great for warm weather riding and also when it is cooler, using the zip-in inner layer. Great feeling of confidence with the leather and mesh combination and the well-placed armour. Like most Revit gear, these pants are well-designed and put together properly. Highly recommended.
Yes, I recommend this product.
