We are proud to announce, MOTORRAD magazine (Germany’s biggest motorcycle magazine) evaluated the C3 Pro recently and rated it “Very Good,” a top rating!

Original article and – translation:

Tested: Schuberth C3 Pro

It IS Better

A small name change signifies the difference: the “Pro” in the model description attests that an outstanding flip-up helmet has become even better.

2012 MOTORRAD Flip-Up Helmet Test concluded that “The C3 is still an excellent flip-up helmet, but it is an aging product that doesn’t set the benchmark in flip-up helmets anymore.” Schuberth recognized this too and based on the C3, developed its unofficial successor, the C3 Pro. What sounds like a simple upgrade, would be considered a complete reconstruction from other manufacturers.  Not entirely wrong, since the EPS (shock absorbing liner), ventilation, aerodynamics and acoustics have been treated to a host of improvements. And they aren’t just better in theory, but are noticeable in actual use. On a 3000 kilometer tour across Germany (plenty of Autobahn) plus criss-crossing the Alps, the C3 Pro proved what its got: its more stable, lets even less noise in, is noticeably better ventilated and even a bit more comfortable. Starting at 595 Euro the C3 Pro is almost 100 Euro more than the C3 which is still available, and for that, distinctly better.

Our charity auction for flood victims ended up with a great success: the total bids for all the 6 original worn Schuberth Formula 1 helmets amounted to 77,051.01 euros.

Today our CEO, Marcel Lejeune, was able to hand over the symbolic cheque to the Lord Mayor of the City of Magdeburg, Dr. Lutz Trümper.

We would like to thank all the bidders, who have contributed to this excellent result. We also want to express our gratitude to our Formula 1 drivers who have made with their helmets this auction possible.

Charity-Auction for Flood Victims

Three weeks ago the Elbe flood arrived at the gate of our plant. The access roads were flooded and the electricity supply was no longer reliable. For two days we were forced to stop work.

Thanks to the support of thousands of personnel from the fire service, the relief agency THW, the German army and the countless volunteers, the worst could be staved off.

Not everyone was so fortunate though. Therefore we start from today until 14 July an unique Formula 1 Charity Auction for the flood victims. Fernando Alonso, Felipe Massa, Nico Rosberg, Nico Hülkenberg and Jules Bianchi have each donated one original Formula 1 helmet worn at a race in the current 2013 season. The record-breaking World Champion and Schuberth development partner Michael Schumacher is also supporting the auction with an original Formula 1 helmet from his final 2012 season – an absolute rarity!

+++ SCHUBERTH flood news +++

Today Schuberth has started production again!

At this point we´d like to say “Thank You” to all the fire fighters, THW and German soldiers.

Our very special thanks go to the countless volunteers, who helped – and are still helping – with tireless determination and a wonderful solidarity to secure the river banks.
