New Helmet Just for Women Debuts

Schuberth’s C3W is designed for a woman’s features

5/17/2011

When it comes to shopping for helmets, there are hundreds of choices out there. Women now have the option to choose a modular full-face helmet designed just for them. Schuberth, a leader in high-end protective helmets, has designed the C3W, the women's version of the C3, the "lightest, quietest, most compact flip-up motorcycle helmet on the market," according to Schuberth.     

The C3W in Pearl White. Other colors include silver, black, matte black, and white.

The C3W features reshaped cheek pads made of soft memory foam to fit a narrower jawline and smaller facial features. The subtle ecru microfiber lining is hypoallergenic, antibacterial, easy to clean and soft on sensitive skin. 

"Schuberth conducted extensive research on women's head and facial structure, which led to a redesign of the fit and different materials in the padding and liner fabric," said Sarah Schilke, Schuberth North America's marketing and public relations manager.
