Schuberth C3 Pro - Europe
Schuberth C3 Pro - Europe
The original Schuberth C3 that delivered high performance and technology has been updated in the form of the C3 Pro. Having undergone rigorous testing in Schuberth’s in-house wind tunnel you can trust the C3 Pro to deliver everything you would want in a motorcycle helmet. The neck cushion and deflector work to minimize wind noise. Schuberth has researched extensively to make the C3 Pro incredibly quiet.
The shell of the helmet is made from layers of fibreglass designed to deliver fantastic shock absorption. This works with the specialized EPS foam liner to give great protection. When the sun starts shining a built-in sun visor can be easily raised and lowered by a slider on the base of the helmet. The new integrated spoiler improves aerodynamics meaning the C3 Pro is ideal for sports riding as well as everyday use.
If you want a helmet that is at the forefront of technology and delivers amazing performance and protection then the Schuberth C3 Pro is right for you.
- Shell made from fibreglass is designed to be lightweight but offer incredible protection

Schuberth helmets were founded in the 1920’s in Braunschweig, Germany. They produce over 1.5 million helmets each year, both under their own brand name and also as BMW brand helmets. A renowned leader in Formula 1 auto helmets, they also supply to 65 armies worldwide, national fire services as well as industry specific headgear for mining, construction, oil/gas, steel, forestry and energy. All of these require exacting professional standards for their specific needs, and for that reason Schuberth have an enviable breadth and depth of manufacturing and engineering experience.
From F1 To SR1
Schuberth often bring their engineering insights from working on different helmets for different industries to bear on their motorcycle helmets. Probably the best example of this is their SR1 helmet range, inspired by their Formula 1 range and designed in close collaboration with Michael Schumacher himself.
These supersport helmets are beautifully designed with a solid feel to every part of the helmet, from the shell itself to the way the moving parts click smoothly and effectively into place. Comfort and durability are both very high quality, and of course they benefit from the most unique feature of Schuberth helmets – they are extremely quiet at high speeds.
Silence At Speed
Schuberth helmets are one of very few manufacturers who have a dedicated wind tunnel in which to test their helmets. During testing, Schuberth helmets are not only optimised aerodynamically but also aero-acoustically too. That is to say that not only does the wind tunnel ensure that your Schuberth helmet remains stable at speed but also remains as quiet as they can possibly be. The current C3 Pro flip front helmet for example has a noise level of less than or equal to 82dB(A) at a constant 100km/h setting a new benchmark for the whole industry.
That's especially good news for riders with tinnitus or sound sensitivity, as we know that ear plugs cannot be relied on to completely protect your hearing in all circumstances.
It's much more than just a helmet for protecting damaged ears, though – without earplugs or helmet, wind noise alone can reach 115 decibels on a motorbike, as much as a loud rock concert. Since decibels are measured in a logarithmic way, this is a huge difference! Logarithmic measurements are like the Richter scale (used to measure earthquakes) and that means that:
Moving from 10 decibels to 20 decibels means that a sound is about 10 times more intense.
Moving from 90 decibels to 100 decibels also means that a sound is about 10 times more intense.
A Schuberth C3 Pro flip front helmet is therefore nearly 2000 times less intense than unfiltered wind noise!
That means that a C3 Helmet is useful for safeguarding your hearing before you hearing can be damaged by excessive and continuous exposure to loud noises. As well as being exceptionally aerodynamic and quiet, the C3 range is also notable for being incredibly light, making it a great choice of helmet if comfort is of high importance to you.
It is no accident that Schuberth work with BMW so well; they are a great partnership, both offering high quality German engineering with a focus on providing understated luxury and comfort in addition to the features you expect from a high-end product.
Schuberth Helmet Extras
Schuberth have a few extras that help their helmets stand out from their competitor ranges.
The Anti-Roll-Off-System or A.R.O.S. is a safety feature that is included in every Schuberth helmet, and makes sure that the chinstrap is closed and safely adjusted. The A.R.O.S. means that the helmet cannot pivot off the head from behind and is less likely to cause damage or come into contact with vulnerable areas during a crash, which is important for safety.
Reflex pads also demonstrate Schuberth's commitment to safety, as reflective "Reflex" areas ensure that the motorcyclist is easy to identify and avoid in dark conditions. Early recognition and recognition from a way off means that passive safety is greatly improved by these areas.
Working its way through the planning and design stages for years to ensure it is exactly as good as it can be, the long awaited SRC-system (Schuberth Rider Communication system) can be integrated into the Schuberth helmet acoustic collar within minutes. This Bluetooth communication device has a wide range of functions including, rider-pillion intercom, mobile phone, MP3 and GPS connectivity, bike to bike intercom (up to 300m) and a built in radio. Come in store and check out this amazing technology from Schuberth helmets.

Really good quality helmet
Quiet and comfortable premium quality helmet with really good ventilation. The helmet has a different shape compared with other premium manufacturers, so highly recommend to try it on before buying. Otherwise happy with the helmet.
Great piece of kit
Quite helmet nicely made. Love the flip up chin bar. Though shame you can't ride with it up at any speed
Excellent value, unfortunately sent to me with security tag still attached. Took it to local store to remove. Otherwise very happy with my purchase.
Great helmet - quiet and comfortable.
What I like most about the helmet is the wide peripheral vision, which means I have no blind spots. The operation of the visor system is very smooth, and I like that it's easy to open with the tabs on both sides. I haven't fitted the pinlock yet, but once summer is over I will for its anti - fog properties. It feels light, well balanced and comfortably padded inside. The big claim with this helmet is how quiet it is and I really notice the improvement over my old helmet. I'm very tempted to get the SRC bluetooth fitted as I know I can easily hold a conversation on the phone or listen to music whilst on the move with this helmet. For me it's a genuinely good helmet with a quality feel and I love the colour scheme; that matt fluorescent yellow looks tremendous in the flesh and you are definitely more visible with a good look rather than a boring one.
