schuberth helmets

Anyone have experience with them?   They have two fullface helmets  that don't flip up for N.A., anyone know the difference between them?

I've always thought the Schuberths were kinda pricey, considering Shoei is acceptable to me and already somewhat expensive.

FWIW: http://www.webbikeworld.com/site-search/search-results.htm?q=schuberth%20helmets

This site has been a decent source of fairly unbiased info for me for years.  Perhaps it'll be of some value to you..  Good luck.

I think I saw a shuberth helmet that cost around 3 thousand dollars or something.

Again, there are A LOT of great helmets out there. But, you need to
1) determine your budget
2) determine what you want, quiet, light (carbon fiber), fancy graphics, both DOT and SNELL?
3) make a list and try them on. Not all helmets fit the same, not all "S" are "S", not all "L" are "L". Not all heads are shaped the same. Helmet sizes even vary within their product line from the same manuf.

Interesting....I went down to Newport Ducati to try their SR-1 top of the line helmet...I was interested in trying one out....seems very well made....

Now let me tell you why...I now have a R1R Nexx which costs $600....The Schulbert runs $960

I met the North American General Manager Randy Northrup and we talked helmets for over an hour....

I told him someone should make a helmet that had better ventilation and less wind noise...he claims his SR 1 fits that bill....I sent him an e-mail asking for a demo to try and compare with my Nexx...

On the street and on the track....

We'll see...

For commuting I wear the C3 modular and I love it. It is much more quieter than my Shoei RF-1100, and it really has a much better aerodynamic feel to it, I can do head checks without feeling like my head is gonna get ripped off my body. The main thing that brought me to it was its quietness rating, although at freeway speeds, 65MPH +, you'll still want to wear ear plugs, but for street speeds, it really is quiet. I also love that it has the drop down sun shade and pin lock visor/lens, so far I have had 0 problems with either. I also bought the SRC communication setup which integrates into the neck roll and works great with my iPhone, which I use for turn by turn directions, plus play tunes when I do any long distance touring. Although some have complained about the fit, but that probably goes for any helmet, your head shape needs to match. I am also seriously considering the SR1 for sport riding and track days but personally I think I'll play that one by ear, as other mentioned it's almost $1k!

All that being said, the new Shoei Neotech is almost an exact match feature for feature to Schuberth C3, although I'm not sure what the quietness rating is, but it is a bit less expensive. Previous to the Schuberth, I have always owned and worn Shoei, so it was hard purchase for me but if the Neotech was around at the time I bought the C3, it probably would have to have been a coin toss.

Thank y ou very much.

Went to one of Evan's "free Lunch" deals on Saturday some months back and wandered inside, noticed a real nice Shuberth helmet painted like my S1000 on sale for less than 700.    Of course I bought it as my Shoei was three years old, I have been very happy with it.  Super quiet nice vents.  Very comfortable

I'm hoping a pricier helmet will last longer.   My scorpions and hjcs seem to last about two years.
