Schuberth C3 Pro Classic Helmet The Rolls Royce of motorcycle helmets, the Schuberth C3 Pro has been designed to improve on the original C3, which was already one of the quietest and most technologically advanced helmets to date. The rear spoiler, which has been optimized during extensive wind tunnel testing, turns the C3 Pro into a real sport helmet, demonstrating outstanding aerodynamic properties at high speeds in excess of 100 mph. With its enhanced aeroacoustics of 82 dB(A) at 100 km/h the C3 Pro is one of the quietest helmets in the world. The C3 Pro is also prepared to accept the integrated Schuberth SCR System , the C3 Pro also incorporates two integrated antennas for increased Bluetooth range and better FM radio reception. The inner lining is made of carefully selected materials such as COOLMAX, Interpower and Thermocool and has been extensively re-shaped and redesigned setting high benchmarks with respect to comfort. Features The shell is aerodynamically tuned, providing more downforce and reducing buffeting Interior helmet sound levels have been reduced to 82 dB(A) at 60 mph C3 84 dB(A) Interior liner has been designed with fewer seams and a more universal interior fit Improved EPS with integrated antennas for SRC-System which improves radio and Bluetooth range Micro-lock ratchet chin strap Large reflective panels on neckroll Improved faceshield ratchet mechanism Integrated sun visor Acoustics A quiet helmet means active safety for the motorcyclist. This permits the rider to concentrate on riding particularly at higher speeds. Many hours in the Schuberth acoustics wind tunnel have ensured that the C3 Pro is as quiet as Schuberth could make it. The comprehensive acoustics package with optimized helmet shell, wind deflector and ergonomic shape of the neck padding make the C3 Pro at 82 dBA one of the quietest helmets on the market. Acoustics package makes helmet quiet Installation of a wind deflector further improves aeroacoustics Only 82dB(A) at 100 km per hour (with naked bikes) Outer Shell The outer shell of the Schuberth C3 Pro is offered in two helmet shell sizes and combines an aerodynamically optimal shape with excellent protection. It is manufactured using Schuberth's typical compression molding process and thus permits great stability and a low weight. Shell material S.T.R.O.N.G. fiber Helmet shell technology from SCHUBERTH permits low weight Glass fiber with a special resin added is compressed in a vacuum at high pressure to form a helmet shell which is exceptionally sturdy Perfected aerodynamics for higher speeds Upward lift 0! Directionally stable No oscillatory tendency No buffeting Spoiler integrated into the helmet shell SRC-System Ready The C3 Pro equipped to accommodate the SCHUBERTH SRC-System C3 Pro (sold separately). To guarantee ideal radio reception, the C3 Pro is already equipped with two integrated antennas to boost FM and Bluetooth reception. Optimum reception at all times FM and Bluetooth antennas integrated into the helmet for optimum reception EPS The EPS foam liner is modular in design to ensure optimal shock absorption. This complex segmentation guarantees enhanced force absorption and distribution. Made of specially optimized EPS foam Complex multizone foaming allows optimal shock absorption Inner Lining A special inner lining of the C3 Pro which was developed according to Schuberth's innovative Comfort Fit concept that ensures the helmet fits comfortably and securely in all situations. The combination of carefully selected COOLMAX and Thermocool materials, with the additional use of Interpower coatings, also make the inner lining a highly-effective moisture removal and cooling system. COOLMAX pad system, completely removable and washable (hand wash, 30C) Optimized fit Variable venting for effective ventilation Adjustable for summer/winter Allergen-free Antibacterial Removable comfort cheek and head band pads Ventilation Thanks to the design of the vents, the supply of fresh air is increased by up to 60. The combination of multipath channels in the EPS foam liner and the head/chin/mouth ventilation ensures that fresh air is distributed effectively over the entire head area. A.R.O.S. and Neck Strap The Anti-Roll-Off System (A.R.O.S.) was especially developed by SCHUBERTH as a safety feature and is incorporated into every SCHUBERTH motorcycle helmet. It ensures that the helmet cannot roll off of the head when the chinstrap is closed and correctly adjusted The helmet cannot pivot off the head from behind The risk of contact between the chin section of the helmet and the chin or throat of the rider is minimized due to the small angle of tilt Reduces the chance of the helmet coming into contact with the chest as the result of an accident Precise setting of the chinstrap length through adjustment on both sides Micro-lock ratchet lock Face Shield The EasyChange visor mechanism makes changing visors extremely quick and simple without the use of tools. City position offers maximum ventilation while traveling at slower speeds Pinlock visor prevents shield from fogging DOT and ECE certified

I had always worn Arai helmets. I wanted a modular helmet and this one fit me (round oval head) best from all the ones I had tried.
Quality and build of this helmet is exceptional.
I did however have problems with the cheek pads being way too tight when the chin bar was closed.
I placed the cheek pads under a weight for 4 days to try to compress them. It helped a bit...but not enough.
I finally had to cough up another $50 to purchase a smaller set of cheek pads. That did "the trick".
At this price point, Schuberth should give you the option on selecting the cheek pads that fit your face best.
Helmet gets more comfortable every time I wear it.
It's a very expensive helmet...but you get what you pay!!!
Yes, I recommend this product.

 TCX Infinity GTX Boots
TCX Infinity GTX Boots
TCX Infinity GTX Boots As close to perfect as it gets, the TCX Infinity Gore-Tex Boot has been a staple of the TCX line up for years. This boot was inspired by famed TCX riders Cyril Despres and Marc Coma for adventure touring. A full grain leather upper with Gore-Tex lining provide unrivaled comfort and durability. This boot has been an editor pick since the beginning. Comfort Fit System (CFS) TCX products in the Touring Range are manufactured using techniques that ensure a high quality fit the Comfort Fit System (form moulding), through which the upper is shaped on a mould that reproduces the anatomy of the human foot. The Touring Range is therefore extremely versatile and high quality, with high tech products that can also be used casually and in the city. Full Grain Leather The uppers of the TCX Touring range are made using full grain leather. This is the most valuable part of the leather, which is specially treated and rendered waterproof. The result is an upper in a natural material that gives exceptional performance in terms of protection from atmospheric agents, breathability and fit. Gore-Tex Membrane The application of the Gore-tex membrane offers an optimal combination of breathability and insulation, granting the feet to stay warm and dry, never sweaty even in extreme conditions. The durable waterproof protection stops moisture from seeping in. Technical Details Upper full grain leather Lining GORE-TEX membrane Protections malleolous protection, shift pad, leather coated shin plate and inner thermo contoured protection Color Black Closure 2 polyurethane adjustable buckles Sole touring sole, oil and petrol resistant with specific grip area Sizes EU 38-48 US 7-13 CE Certified Note Boots may not feature the leather patch on the outside of the toe box.

I already have a pair of OXTAR (before they became TCX) Infinity boots that have been EXCELLENT.. Stiill in excellent condition except that the soles are beginning to wear (will probably resole them).
100% waterproof, excellent crash protection, with sneaker llike walking comfort
Haven't worn my newly purchased TCX Infinity boots yet but bought them because several dealers told me that TCX is discontinuing this boot.and I will eventually need to replace my Oxtar's.....and I'mnot willing to compromise with another boot.
Revzilla still has them so if you want the BEST all round M/C boot out there, buy them from Revzilla.
Yes, I recommend this product.
