C3 Pro

I used a C3 Pro for 5 years and reviews said it was quiet but, it was not all that. and when you are at speed, without a windscreen, it would whistle horribly when you turn your head at a certain angle and the visor would unlatch and open a bit. I talked to a couple of people and one being a female rider with the women's version and it did the same thing.
I have tried replacing the visor.
Nortec 2 helmet has been pretty good so far, about a year or so with it. l like the integrated comm system better then the one I had with the C3 Pro.

C3 Pro

I'm now on my second C3 Pro. It's light and comfortable, the visor and the flip down sun visor are marvelously clear with a wide field of vision, and, wearing glasses as I do, it's easy to take off.
In cold weather the little velcroed optional under chin piece keeps that cold air out.
However I've found there are two big CONS.
1 This helmet is unusually sensitive to buffeting. In smooth air it's brilliant and quiet, but turbulent air is a big No. I've recently switched back to an old heavy cheap dirt helmet with beak for highway riding, and find I'm no longer bothered by buffeting.
2 There's not much ventilation, and the visor won't maintain a slightly open position before falling shut.
Also, the chinstrap mechanism is great, but be aware, you can't use a helmet locking hook with it.
I've never used the Neotec, so I can't compare the two.

virkdoc As Im using the Schuberth more to break it in another thing is that the visor is extremely large......you get more field of view!

Rick92040 It was the same with me. Schuberth did not fit my head. Shoei does. The Shoei Neotec 2 is the most comfortable helmet I've ever had in the last 50 years. Noise is irreverent as I use custom made earplugs. ($60. at the Long Beach motorcycle show)

Blue eye so with this experience I have concluded there are 3 head shapes:
1) Shoei Head
2) Schuberth Head
3) Head shape which really is ok with both helmets

Schuberth Large is SNUG as compared to Shoei Large!!

Does the white colored Shuberth really come with that blue air flow adjustment knob?
Curious since that will probably be my next color.
