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 motorsport season 2012 has ended and on many small and not so small occasions we at Schuberth had the luck to be a part of it. The 2012 season has been a very exciting and emotional one for us. Living legends, celebrated stars and surprising newcomers – they´ve all been there. And we´d like to say thank you to all our Schuberth-Riders for all these great achievements and want to present some of them in this special review.

Stoffel Vandoorne
A real impressive performance came from our Belgian driver Stoffel Vandoorne. He won the Euroseries Formula Renault 2.0 championship with 10 points difference. Ever since the World Series has been the talent pool for upcoming Formula-1 stars and we´re looking forward to see much more of this talented young man.

Bruno Spengler
Another championship won by a Schuberth-Driver: The DTM, the most challenging touring car championship, won by Franco-Canadian Bruno Spengler. Many times did he prove he could be the first crossing the finish line – since 2005 he runs in one of the most advanced touring series worldwide and finished as runner-up in two seasons. But not many would have bet on the championship in the first year after the return of the BMW-team ! Well done Bruno


Erwan Nigon
Just in 2011 did Schuberth start to supply professional motorcycle racer with it´s SR1 helmet. All the more we are excited that our French Schuberth-Rider Erwan Nigon did succeed in the International German Motorcycle championship (IDM). Whoever had the luck to meet Erwan in person and experience this humble and polite person was astonished how much eagerness and dedication he could show on the track. We just can´t wait for the next season with Erwan as our top Schuberth motorcycle rider.


It took us a little bit by surprise when we received the news of winning the Endurance Superstock Worldchampionship with the penz13-team. Second year in motorcycle racing and already a World Champion! Congratulations to Rico Penzkofer and his team penz13 with Pedro Vallcaneras (E), Michal Filla (CZ), Gregory Vastre (B) and Arie Vos (NL). Moreover we take our hat off to Rico participating in two of the most challenging motorcycle races in the world: The Isle of Man Tourist Trophy and his goodbye race at Macau, where this picture was taken – close call!

Nico Hülkenberg
Back to Formula 1: An impressive season by Nico Hülkenberg. With his team Sahara Force India he did not only deliver continuously good results, but also achieved some very respectable standings. We´re happy for him that his performance brought him to a regular cockpit in the promising Sauber F1 Team. This foto has been taken when he visited us at Schuberth for customizing his new SF1 helmet.


Fernando Alonso
The international press did already say anything that can be said about this spectacular Formula 1 season and it´s highlight race at Interlagos. And we know that a top performer like Fernando can only be mildly happy about a second place. Obviously we hoped for another title for Ferrari – but now we like to congratulate Fernando for his unbelievable spirit and fight shown till the last lap of the last race. For us you are the most inspiring Formula 1 driver.

Michael Schumacher
Last but not least we´d like to honor our friend Michael Schumacher. Since 11 years we work together very closely. Many developments and innovations have their origin in his pursuit of perfection. Most of our achievements were really his achievements: we could celebrate 4 out of 7 World Championships with him. We take off our hat – or more precisely our helmet – to honor this outstanding athlete. Michael, we´ll miss you on the track. But at the same time we´re happy that we can still continue to profit of your experience and your knowledge now that you ended your professional career – looking forward!

The Pit Crews
Without them: no wheel would be turning: the Pit Crews. Representing all the Pit Crews in all the series we´d like to thank you all with this picture choosen from the Scuderia Ferrari Pit Crew.

After showing the new helmet designs of all the Ferrari drivers last week, the Mercedes helmets have also been shipped to Valencia.

While Nico changed almost nothing on his design, Michael switched to a reflecting Chrome-Design on the dragon and the lines.

All the luck to them for the upcoming season !

We´d like to wish all of you a very happy new year 2011. For us this year will be a special one – we´ll launch our first motorcycle race helmet SR1, for the first time we´ll sell our FIA-certified motorsports race helmet SF1, we´ll launch our new firefighters helmet F300 and some more models, we won´t reveal yet.

In the beginning of 2011 we would like to wish Michael Schumacher a very happy birthday – in all those years we had the honor to accompany his career

We wish to all of you and to Michael a very happy and successful 2011
