meese My wife uses a head cover from Schampa every time we ride. I've never felt the need for one.

The liners in the C2 can be easily removed for washing. Also, the upper liner can be inserted two ways. One covers the forehead vent holes (for winter) and the opposite uncovers the holes (for summer). But I imagine it would still be warmer than a half helmet.

I've found the vents in the C2 work well, even behind a Cee Bailey #2 windscreen. They're much better than the original Concept vents, and the C2 is much quieter, too. Now if they would just make it lighter, and come with a built-in headset . . .

hschisler Slik helmet liner, 100% of the time. Helps to keep the helmet liner clean longer, and easier to throw in the laundry than removing the helmet liner for cleaning.

I use a SLIK, but hadn't thought about soaking it. Thanks for the suggestion.

messenger13 I used to use a product called a "Slik" helmet liner. Ever since moving to a Nolan, no need. Don't ask me why.

Also, whenever I buy a new helmet or wash the liner...before wearing it for the first time I use THIS PRODUCT to keep the helmet fresher longer. Works for me. YMMV

Whaddya Wear Under The Helmet?

I've always worn a half helmet, but now have gone to a Schuberth C2. Am learning this type helmet is a bit warm, and noticed quite a bit of perspiration production going on inside the helmet.

What type of head covering do most folks wear under the helmet?
