I have always wanted a higher end helmet over The HJC that I have been using over the years. I have had many models of the HJC brand. I have been drawn to the Schubert C3 for sometime, but could never bring myself to spend that much for a quality helmet. I have found some good price reductions on there helmets. I lean toward the C3 pro and have founds some at a somewhat reasonable price. For my wife ,I can only find the C4 pro in a women’s helmet. Not that she has ever had a helmet made for a women,but thought I would go that way this time. The reviews for a touring helmet lean to the C3 pro over the C4 pro. I have a C3 pro and aC4 pro in a shopping cart waiting for me to hit the buy button. Should I buy both helmets in a C4 pro ? Keep searching for a women’s C3 pro or hit the buy button on what I have.
Hi Handy1!
The Schuberths do not fit me, so I've been through HJC, Shoei Multitec and Neotec (1 and 2).
There is a good review about the new Schuberth C5 and some history on the C3 and C4 models at Motolegends (UK shop): Schuberth C5 helmet review

Good luck with your decision.

Neotec 2 here. I have Shoei head!

Great helmet. I find it quiet and do use earplugs. Ear Soft grippers. I wanted a Schubert also but honestly the Neotec fit me better and seemed more substantial.

If you are still looking for a modular helmet, I highly recommend the AGV Sportmodular Carbon helmet. I just bought one this past month to replace my Schuberth C3. The AGV is more comfortable, just as quiet, and much lighter. I was able to get the Carbon/White model for $599 on CycleGear.com but I think others are selling it for about the same price.

Good luck with your decision.

There have been references to a new Schuberth Helmet in this thread, now it is released in Germany. According to this article there will be some kind of interchangeable inserts for those of us that don't have Schuberth heads.

Over my years of riding and wearing helmets, name the brand and I have probably owned it. All said and done however, I always end up going back to Shoei. More bucks, but, you can get replacement liners for the shell, the fit (on me) has always been the best.
Have owned full face, half shell "Beanie" style helmets, you name it , I have owned them. The closed (full ) face is nice 'cept you get a LOT of road noise and dirt coming up from the road and into the helmet.
Currently own a Shoei 3/4 face helmet, model is J-Cruise.
You won't find them waiting on the shelves as they are not the "fashion " helmet of the month so to speak. No graphics just a nice looking no moto-geek helmet.

The C5 Schuberth's crown liner is split in 4 (?) parts. All these can be bought in different thicknesses, so you can tailor the fit by swapping out individual pieces with thicker/thinner ones to adopt to your head shape. For example, you can swap to the two side pieces with thicker ones to go for a more oval shape, or swap the rear only with a thinner one to make more room in the front if you get pressure on the forehead. You get the idea... The helmet won't be available until next year though and the liners will take even longer to hit the shelves. Unfortunately Schuberth made the mistake (again) to pre-install the speakers and mic so fitting your choice of intercom will be very difficult. That gets them off my list of potential replacement lids.

I know, it's an older thread. I've had a Schuberth C3 for way too many years now, and I have replaced the liners, sun visor and a couple of visors over that time, but it's worn out. I'm gambling, but I bought into the new C5 and the built-in Sena SC-2 communications system from Champion Helmets in Amsterdam. I don't have them yet but as a couple of guys have said they have gone to a split liner that can accommodate more head shapes, meets the stricter ECE22-06 safety standards for 2023 and is P/J certified. My specific choice of style (Eclipse White/Black/Yellow) should be here in less than a month. I'll report back how I like it.

Congrats. However, I had to chuckle just a bit.

I bought a new LS2 Valiant II helmet last winter, which is superior to every helmet I have ever had, including Bell, Sohei, Nolan, and a few others. Very happy with it. The "chuckle" part of that was that they shipped it direct from Spain to Northern Idaho, in the USA, in four days. Heck, I bought my wife a Valiant I helmet (on sale, in her color) from Amazon, which took five days to deliver. I was impressed as heck with the European vendor (motocard.com).

Mine took four days, while you're waiting a month for yours. 🙄😁 Hope it's worth the wait, and you enjoy your riding season!
👍🍻

Bought one for my summer helmet. Great lid.
