Schuberth C4 helmet review
I purchased a Schuberth C4 modular helmet last November and used it for a trip from Seattle to Anchorage. Reviews were positive, and I could use the Schuberth com (SC1 PLUS) system to blue tooth my phone, gps and motorcycle entertainment/com system (riding a BMW 2018 K1600GTL), plus it was extremely light and supposedly quiet. Bought from FC Moto in Germany, great prices and reasonable shipping to the US.
I had tried this same helmet on in Anchorage before making the purchase, the sizing was right.
The C4 has built in speakers and Mic, the SC1 just snaps into the base of the helmet and worked flawlessly, about the only thing about the helmet that was right.
First day I was getting intense headaches, not right away but slowly building as I left the helmet on. Come to find out there was a couple of pressure points in the back of the C4 helmet causing this. By day two I had worked these areas down with the blunt end of a screw driver handle, no more headaches.
As time went on the helmet started getting noisier and noisier, never occurred to put in ear plugs; that came later.
Just recently the front mouth air vent cover fell off, it still worked but was missing the plastic cover.
The top vent has become almost impossible to open and close.
On my ride last night, even with ear plugs in the buffeting noise on the right side was unimaginable loud.
I am now wearing my old heavy modular helmet, filing a claim on the Schuberth (it has a 5-year unconditional guarantee).
If they replace the helmet it's going on eBay.
Conclusion, canít recommend this helmet, maybe youíve had better luck but to me it is cheaply built, noisy and ill fitting and $$$$.
