I bought this helmet based on reviews from this site and the style, weight, padding are all good. I went to Colorado Springs for a bike rally—rode two-up for about 350 miles the first day. I had a hot spot on my forehead along with a huge knot and headache that lasted more than two days. Needless to say, I couldn't ride the rest of the trip. It was sad for me and my riding partner.

I think it should be noted that that this helmet is mostly for people with round heads. I have an oval head and nowhere in Schuberth's description do they tell people it's best for round heads. When I reached out to them upon returning they suggested I wear it another 100 miles or more or send it to them for some adjustments at my expense plus $79. It's an expensive helmet as is. I could have avoided my loss if Schuberth stated the helmet shape in its specs. That's my experience.

Thanks for sharing your experience Vicki. I'm sorry to hear about your hot spot. I do know what you mean, as I noted at the beginning of this article, as I had a hot spot with the original version of this helmet that prevented me from being able to use it. I was OK with this newer version, but it never did fit quite right. I do wear it, but I have other helmets that fit me better.

I think you're right on because I too have an oval-shaped head so perhaps that could be the issue with this particular helmet. Years ago, some helmet makers would identify their helmets based on the shape of one's head, but today's helmets are not listed that way anymore (why I don't know), so reviews like mine and comments like yours are so very important for consumers to know. So thanks again for your feedback.

When WRN first reviewed this helmet, I decided then I wanted one. The closet place near me to buy one is two hours away. They did not have the women's in stock. The salesman said the only difference was the cheek pads. So I went ahead and bought the helmet. At first I did not like it. But after the helmet conformed to my head, I LOVE IT. Had a Shoei before. Will never go back. Excellent helmet. The only problem is I worry it will get stolen. I am very careful locking it to my Sporty.

I am in my second riding season with the C3 PRo Women's helmet. Absolutely the best full-face helmet I have owned. Quiet and comfortable. I was involved in an accident where another bike rear-ended me when I was turning the corner. Helmet did what is was supposed to do: gel coat missing, scrapes and cracks on the visor. I replaced it immediately with another C3 Pro Women's helmet! A great investment.

I bought one, in pearl white, at the Steel Horse Sisterhood Summit this past spring where Schuberth was a major sponsor. I thought paying so much for a helmet was a bit over the top but it's far exceeded my old Shoei full-face helmets. It's lighter, more comfortable and quieter. I never thought I would find these qualities in a modular full-face helmet. With this helmet I don't get the buffeting whiplash effect when I turn my head sideways to look at something or do a head check when changing lanes. I really like the built-in sun shield. I wear glasses and now I don't have to carry a pair of prescription sunglasses or deal with those that fit over glasses (not a great fit under a helmet). And, best of all, I don't have to take my glasses off every time I take my helmet off or put it on. Heavenly. I also like the ability to flip up the front so I can get a drink and/or snack at a gas stop. It was definitely worth the price.
