My next helmet will be the c3 pro or c4. I've never owned any helmet by them, but i've never heard a bad review on them.

Vancouver BMW Ducati stock the c3 pro and a couple of other models.

if i'm not mistaken a friend of mine owns a Schuberth. I'm considering one myself for the Raider, so it will likely be a hybrid / flip-up for ease of use at Gas stops & at the border

right, the C3 pRO i believe is what i was interested in. Only 82dB(A) at 100 km per hour (with naked bikes)

actually thanks for the reminder, i noticed on our last ride of the season communication between riders is pretty important and apparently i'm in luck as the C3 PRO SRC com system
has been confirmed to pair up with SENA, in universal bluetooth mode with latest software, this was shared as early as end of 2015 so it should be solid now.

most riding partners now have the Sena system, i'd like to confirm it works with SMH10; thus far only read of the 20s pairing succesfully.

Thanks ...... I'll keep this all in mind. I thought about their built in Bluetooth system which seems well thought out. It just seems a shame to stop using the setup I already have; the Uclear HBC200. It still works great and I have no problems with it. My frugality won't let me change it out without guilt.

the SRC com system is basically a CARDO custom fit, without external antenna. Unfortunately the lack of antenna means it wont have the reach of current Sena's and others which sits at about 1 MILE.

I ended up getting an Arai ProTour for about $480US today. I love their helmets and have always been happy with their quality.

The red bull rookies cup riders must wear Shubert helmets during official races.
I have yet to hear a positive comment from these kids. Visibility is a big issue.
Looks like the cup organizers have listen and will allow riders to wear the helmet of their choice starting maybe 2017 but for sure 2018.
It all depends if they can their Shubert contract.

Btw.... BMW motorrad has sourced out a new helmet manufacturer for their BMW branded helmets.
Shubert is out.

SH..... I was thinking of contacting you to see if you had any new Sharks on your possession that were you selling. I've had a pair of those in the past and was impressed with them.

Interesting note about the Schuberts. I have an AGV and a Box that have narrow fields of view. It's very noticeable when I go back to the Bell or Shoei. *

I've seen a few of their helmets. Seems like good quality but again, field of vision not nearly as good - no thanks. I have a Shark and a Shoei.

Interesting notes on field of vision.. thats not good news for me. I'm sure i'm not the only one that gets anxiety when i cant see vehicles on edges of peripheral vision. Its bad enough THEY are blind :coffee

i'm happy with my AVG Gp-tech and am very hesitant to switch as i've grown accustomed to it, both on the R1 and the Raider alike.

i have been using a Schueberth C3 for a few years now and field of view seems good to me. The modular design is really handy for fueling and i find I wear the helmet right into the into the store at times.
Pros - Modular design super quiet drop down sun visor
cons - poor air flow thats why their so quiet

d'uh, i kept wondering who i knew to wear a Schuberth C3 recently, did you wear it on the Oregon trip? should have asked about it more
but I didnt really get bit by the modular helmets bug till near end of summer as my AGV GP-tech is getting long on the tooth.

what size are you? i'm a large, would be nice to get an idea of fitment. If anything with the position you ride you'd be able to tell if there were peripheral vision issues, easier than on a sportbike i mean

Yup wore it on Oregon trip, I have never had any peripheral vision issues with the C3 helmet. apparently Schuberth shells are the same size for smalls and mediums its the liners that are used for sizing and you can mix and match the the different pads to get the perfect fit.My wife had to change out her small cheek pads for a pair of mediums on hers.Not sure about the larger sizes as i managed to squeeze into a medium. For road use once you try a modular i doubt you will ever go back to a standard helmet its just too convenient for short stops. Go to Vanco BMW/Ducati and find your size there they had a great selection a few years ago. I got my C3 for $650 on sale there 4 years ago but thats a old model now the more recent models have improved air flow and larger visors.
