Top 10 Things I Like About the Schuberth C3
10.
I like the understated Schuberth label and the rear abstract graphic. Neither is screaming for marketing attention as other helmets' BIG-named labels and graphics. Plus, Schuberth's are reflective. How classy and safety-minded is that?
9.
For a flip-up helmet, the C3 is light.
8.
Streamlined design. The sides don't balloon out, avoiding that look of me wearing a ball for a helmet. Plus, the bottom covers just enough of my chin and the base of my skull, preventing the bottom from scraping against my jacket's collar or shoulder pads during head checks.
7.
The Micro-Lock Rachet fastener makes using the chin strap incredibly easy, even with gloves on. Other helmets' D-rings have nothing on this rachet fastener.
6.
Even with earplugs in, I still hear the wind's roar. But for a flip-up helmet, the C3 reduces the level. Plus, there's usually no whistling or booming noise. I don't think any other flip-up helmet can do all of that. In fact, I also don't think many full-face helmets can do that, either.
5.
I have a roundish head. And the C3 cocoons it in a luxuriously snug fit.
4.
Outstanding peripheral vision.
3.
Sun visor is positioned nicely, operates smoothly, and gently darkens a harshly bright view.
2.
The faceshield is easy to take off and to put on. And with the Pinlock, the faceshield doesn't fog up even if I try.
1.
Massive airflow. Most of the time, I close the faceshield and I only occasionally use the chin vent. The outstanding head vent is usually sufficient.
***********
My head size:
22.75 inches; 57.8 centimeters
Size bought:
Large: 22.8 – 23.2 inches; 58 – 59 centimeters
Helmet fit:
For neutral to rounder-shaped heads. And among other things, here’s a helmet review on the C3’s fit:

Bell RS-1 Helmet - Solid Colors The all-new Bell RS-1 Solid Helmet bridges the gap between the top-of-the-line Bell Star and the value-minded Vortex with an amazing blend of mid-line price and high-end performance. Starting with a lightweight Kevlar/fiberglass composite shell, the RS-1 brings it with Bells vaunted Velocity Flow Ventilation system providing cool comfort, a super stable aerodynamic profile keeping the helmet still at speed, and the versatile Click Release shield system for fast, easy shield swapsnot to mention an amazing variety of tint and coating choices. The Bell RS-1 Helmet should be a game changer in the mid-high end helmet assortment. The RS-1 Helmet will prove its worth on track and street alike. Contour Cut Cheekpads and a plush, removable, washable liner cradle the head in comfort while Bells exclusive Magnafusion magnetic strap keeper makes flapping strap ends a thing of the past. All told, its one great helmet at a modest price. Need help with the sizing Watch our sizing video or give our Gear Geeks a call!

My size: 22.75 inches
My head shape: More towards round
Size bought: Large, 23 1/4 - 23 5/8
Helmet fit: More for narrower heads
SUMMARY
I've wanted very much to own the Bell RS-1. Sadly, I ended up returning it to Revzilla because of the poor fit.
In fact, the fit was so harmfully tight that my cervical column (the spinal column that make up the neck) would ache when I'd put on the RS-1.
I've then eventually learned that the helmet is more for narrower heads than my rounder head. I've discovered that from the WebBikeWorld.com review of the RS-1.
As an example, here's an excerpt of what its author wrote:
"I'll give the Bell RS-1 an 'Outstanding' rating for comfort and liner materials and padding. Check the fit to make sure it works for you before buying; round heads may not fit."
So even if you have the right size, it's a requirement also to have the right head shape.
PS: Here's that review's web address:

ME: 5'5", 151 lbs, 32" waist, 39" chest, 30" sleeves
SIZE BOUGHT: Small
FIT: Excellent. Feels custom-made for my size.
COMFORT: Outstanding. Feels like I'm wearing an armored bed comforter -- tough and comfy at the same time.
SUMMARY
Being hard-to-fit because of my short stature, I greatly appreciate the Joe Rocket Alter Ego 3.0. It fits me so well that it feels like the small size has been made specifically for me.
But regardless of size, please note: this jacket is so well insulated that it can get hot. You'd have to strip down to one of the three layers, or a combination of them, in order to find a suitable layering for warm climates.
And should you need to wear all three in cold temperatures, just know that the whole jacket is heavy -- a little bit above five pounds. That's the weight of a regular laptap. Nonetheless, the jacket is oh so comfortable.
Also, the jacket has a feature that hasn't been discussed or shown on Anthony's video: the outer shell can be rolled and zippered to itself for storage.
Overall, this jacket has been hard-earned-money well spent.
Yes, I recommend this product.
