Schuberth C3 Basic helmet in silver Product Information

The Schuberth C3 Basic is the original Schuberth’s C3 by another name. It was in 2013 that Schuberth decided to update its long-standing C3 helmet. The new, improved model was called the C3 Pro, and it would have to be admitted that the new iteration was an improvement. There were up to a dozen modifications. There was a new, more aerodynamic shell, a more comfortable lining, better venting, a new position for the chinstrap, an upgraded aerial, and so on. The new helmet was an evolution of its predecessor, but so popular had the C3 been that the UK importer decided to keep the helmet in their range. They reduced it to three, rather dull, colours. They took the Pinlock out of the box, and they reduced the price. Superseded as the C3 might have been, it was still, and indeed is still, a very impressive bit of kit, with nearly all of the features to be found on the Pro model. We’re talking about mult-point ventilation. Schuberth’s anti-roll off chin strap, a drop-down visor and so on. And don’t forget that, even today, the C3 Basic is still one of the quietest helmets on the market with a 60 mph decibel rating of just 84. The Basic was always a great helmet, and it was always great value. It still is. We have updated this description on the C3 Basic early in 2020 largely to make interested parties aware of the fact that the helmet has now technically been discontinued. No more will be produced. Already, some colours in some sizes are running very low. By the end of the first quarter of this year we expect supplies to be very limited. By the middle of the year we expect the helmet to have sold out virtually everywhere. But there’s one final point we wanted to make. The Basic does not, as we have explained, come with a Pinlock visor, but from now until the very last C3 Basic sells out, we are going to supply it with a top-of-the range Pinlock 120. And this is actually better than the lookalike Pinlock that comes as standard with the C3 Pro. Normally, this Pinlock sells for £30, bringing the price of the Basic, in effect, down to £270. Grab one our C3 Basics whilst you still can. When they’re gone, they’re gone!

Product Reviews


nicholas gothard: mr

This is my third C3. They fit me like a pair of comfy slippers. The quality is excellent and they are very quiet. At this price and with the free pinlock it has to be the best value lid ever! Absolute bargain.

David Griffiths: Highly recommended

I've worn Shoei flip-front helmets for most of my riding career but the Neotec 2 is just too expensive for my budget so I shopped around and came up with the C3 Basic which is over £200 cheaper. It fits me well and is very quiet. Getting my glasses on is a little awkward but once in place the helmet holds them comfortably and securely. Motolegends' inclusion of a full-price Pinlock is a real bonus.
