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.
