They got top ranking in this months Cycle World modular helmet review. And they were by far the most expensive. Surprising you got such s deal on them, they only very recently reentered th US market.
I'm so weird I have to put my gloves on in a certain order. Left glove first, THEN the right glove. It's stupid, but there it is.I liken geering up for a motorcycle ride to geering up to scuba dive. Everything is put on or attached in the proper sequence. I.E. gloves go on last. I knew of quick release adapters for d ring fasteners but felt it was not worth the cost for a minor inconvenience. My roadster has a helmet lock on the side of the bike and the d ring attaches it. I won't be able to use it with the new one. I also have no problem using previous generation items especially if the work and the difference in design is not so revolutionary that going with the new gen is a no-brainier. Luckily the new helmet fits perfectly. Who says I'm not lucky.
You've confused price with value. I've handled and tried on Schuberths; they aren't double the price better than a Nolan, not even close. But then again, you've always been a California Fashionista who is more hung up on brand and image than utility and quality. If you were a chick you'd be carrying a $1,000 designer purse and wearing Prada shoes.I can tell you Kmo. I've owned 3 Nolans and 2 Schuberths. The quality isn't even close.
If the C3 fits your head, buy it. The Nolan is a good helmet but garbage compared to the Schuberth.
You should have held out for the upcoming Schuberth "Conspiratorist." It's made completely out of tin-foil.You may want to wait until next year. They are coming out with a new model called the Blindster. It is the first helmet designed with built in equine blinders to provide cover for the wearer's refusal to understand the truth. Any truth.
Mom said I am NOT "retarded." I'm "special."Yes my dear retarded older brother. But the Schuberth is now on sale for half price which makes it a great value.
If it fits your head (I'm not sure they make size PIN), it is oodles better than a Nolan.
I'm currently wearing a Nolan BTW. The C3 didn't fit my noggin.
