Re: Schuberth C3 ??? Problems
I bought a new C3 just before Christmas and have begun using it daily for the last 2-3 weeks. Its a superb fit and really feels rock-solid on my head without feeling 'shut in'.
I do have two minor niggles though that may be enough for me to send it back for inspection.
The fitment loop for the neck curtain doesnt sit fully in its mounting channel in the shell. Probably not an issue, but could become looser, and maybe give more noise.
Theres an annoying draught of air comming in by my right cheek. Its just enough in the cold weather to be distracting. As far as I can see, its not from the visor or the gap between the chin and neck curtains- rather the chinbar moulding on the right seems to be a fraction further from the shell than the left and Im pretty sure this is the culprit.Iva also tried adjusting the latch pin on that side, but even with the play reduced when closed the draught is still there. Obviously, comming from a standard full-face without chin-curtain, the C3 is worlds better for draughts exclusion but...
Im loathe to go back to my old helmet for three weeks whilst the C3 is being inspected, and whilst I couls just glue some felt or rubber draught-excluder in the necessary places, I do kinda feel that a E500+ euro helmet should be spot-on.
Am I being overly fussy? Anyone else had this?
