After my first, very brief, try out of the new lid I'm fairly impressed. It's definitely going to need earplugs as there is a bit more noise than I was expecting but nothing horrendous. The drop down tinted visor is superb and optically it's amazing, no distortion anywhere.
It's pronounced 'twenty-one-twelve'

... I liked the Caberg Duke Legend, it got a 5 star safety rating and was cheaper, but my chin came too close to the front of the helmet to be comfortable.
I have the same concern which is one of the reasons I am changing from Caberg.  That and the fact that both sun and main visors now seem to drop down in view randomly. It's less than a year old and on its way back to Caberg; granted they can't do a lot about my chin but the visor ratchet 'thing' shouldn't have worn out so quickly.

Buy cheap buy twice.

I realise that it's essential to try on a lid before buying, to make sure the fit is good, but as a general rule of thumb, do the schuberth lids fit in the same manner as the cabergs?
I've always found the cabergs to be fine for what they are, but I noticed a price rise in recent times so I might try a different make

I have the new C4, which they have gone back to a more oval shape of old with the coms which is built in now. Not as stylish as helmets of old but good in the rain, the coms talks to other bluetooth systems, and its lighter and slightly narrower so fits in a pannier/topcase easier. I got mine from Helmet City in Chichester and I had issues with the coms at first which they sorted and were brilliant.

Had a look at the Schubert and nearly brought up my lunch when I saw the price  :icon_exclaim:.
I get the quality thing and the safety, but the price!!!!. I bought a Scorpion ADX-1 and more than happy. Had been using a Caberg and it was starting to annoy me with constantly leaking water into the visor onto the pinlock insert. Have you ever tried to clean the pinlock without scratching it, tried washing in soap suds and never touched it with anything, rinsed with clean water and left to air dry. Feck me, scratches right in my eyeline :violence-smack:

V Strom yesterday.....so new kit today.

This included a new C3 flip top lid from Schuberth. I had a Sena comms system installed in the shop at the same time and got some good discount.

I've been out with the lid but didn't set up the comms. Most impressed with the C3; so much more quieter than my Arai
solid helmet and feels a lot lighter to wear as well. My first go a fliptop hat and so far all good.....
