The First High Speed Flip-Up Helmet with Internal Antenna

Schuberth C3 PROAerodynamics – Rear spoiler adds 8% additional downforce for greater stability at higher speeds

Aeroacoustics – Reduced noise measured at 82 dba – Schuberth’s quietest flip-up helmet ever

Ventilation – New vent scoop increases airflow to over 8 liters per second

Comfort – New plush liner materials enhance comfort and fit

Communications – Internal dual band antenna improves SRCS wireless connectivity

Light, quiet, compact – these features have characterized the Schuberth C3 flip-up helmet for years. Now Schuberth is presenting a completely updated premium partner to the base model C3 – the C3 PRO. The C3 PRO features a molded rear spoiler developed in the Schuberth wind tunnel for minimizing buffeting at higher speed riding. The internal antenna and Bluetooth® receiver enhance the communication range up to 700 meters and FM radio reception for the Schuberth Rider Communication System. The refined inner lining offers a plush, comfortable fit. The new vent scoop boosts airflow through the helmet to over 8 liters of air per second at 100 km/h. With a wind tunnel tested sound rating of just 82 dB(A), the C3 PRO is the quietest Schuberth helmet ever. The C3 PRO (and female fit C3 PRO WOMEN) flip-up helmet features over 20 additional enhancements and will be available this spring.

Based on additional research, the C3 PRO WOMEN is specially fitted for a woman’s facial structure, featuring a special contour and materials in the cheek pads to better fit a woman’s higher cheek bones,  narrower jaw and smaller facial features.

Schuberth Rider Communication System for the C3 PRO
The easy-to-install, fully integrated Schuberth Rider Communication System (SRCS C3 PRO) plugs into the C3 PRO’s internal antenna for improved FM radio reception and pairing distance of up to 700 meters.

(Note: The SRCS C3 will fit into the C3 PRO and will function normally, but since it does not plug into the helmet’s antenna, it will not offer the improved reception that can be expected from the new SRCS C3 PRO.  The SRCS C3 PRO does not offer backward compatibility to the C3.  While it will physically fit, there is no internal antenna, so Bluetooth connectivity and radio reception are not possible.)

The 2012 motor sport season is well underway all over Europe. We have expanded our involvement in professional racing further throughout Europe and into the United States. We recently launched our SR1 race helmet and have taken our first steps in the professional motorcycle racing arena.

This year, we are pleased to have recruited the experienced Honda factory rider Arne Tode as a new test rider for Schuberth in the IDM. Rico Penzkofer (Team Penz13) has also joined our team as an official test rider. He will start in the IDM and will also compete in the Isle of Man TT (25 May to 8 June), possibly the most gruelling street race in the world. We are already looking forward to the first pictures from this spectacle on 2 wheels.

Stefan Nebel, KTM factory rider and Schuberth test rider since 2011, will take the SR1 onto US soil for the first time; his U.S. debut will be in the highest level American motorcycle division, AMA Pro Superbike. Best of luck, Stefan!

We are particularly pleased about the success of our French SR1 rider Erwan Nigon, who is racing in the IDM for the first time with BMW and has managed to finish in first place twice already. Toutes nos félicitations, Erwan!

Schuberth fans were excited to see the representatives from the North American office on-hand at the annual BMW Rally in Redmond, Oregon. Over 150 happy C2, Concept and S1 owners had their helmets refreshed with new faceshields, visors, liners and other parts by the Schuberth Service Technician. Rally participants also got the opportunity to see and try on samples of the up-coming DOT version of the popular C3 which will be available in North American dealers this fall. For the technology buffs, Schuberth also presented the easy-to-install integrated bluetooth Schuberth Rider Communication (SRC) System.
