I went the local dealer and tried on the new Shuberth C-3. WOW what a lid! Anybody have any thoughts or comments. :shrug:
same issue here, although I determined this before I bought it. Wouldn't have been able to fit a mike any where around my mouth, and the chin strap about choked me.
I have had one since April 2009 (I bought mine while visiting Europe). I got the SRC (bluetooth module) in June 2010.I went the local dealer and tried on the new Shuberth C-3. WOW what a lid! Anybody have any thoughts or comments. :shrug:
Why/how can you jump to this conclusion?They use two shell sizes. The Large helmet uses the smaller shell, the XL and larger use the large shell.
If you use a large, that is where one usually runs into chin room problems. Most other sizes it is OK.
I think this must have been another Schubert helmet. The C3 is the first flip helmet which fitted me and did not hit my chin. Also the C3 is only available since early 2010. I bought it for use on my GL1000's without any windshield protection, otherwise I prefer open face (Arai).
Do not believe I said it would fit everyone. As with all helmets, individual fit is important. If it does not fit, get a different model.Why/how can you jump to this conclusion?
As noted in my above post, I (and others) had a serious problem with lack of room in the jaw and chin areas - and this was with an XL. I do NOT have an OJ Simpson sized noggin or Jay Leno jaw (I wear a 7 3/8 hat).
Also, the XL shell is big, looks like a big melon sitting on your head.
While trying out this helmet at a BMW dealer, I mentioned the fit problem (jaw/chin) and the sales rep nodded knowingly and said that certainly wasn't the first time customers have said that.
Don't get me wrong, the C3 is a beautifully made helmet, but it simply is not going to fit everyone.
