The quietest and lightest flip-up helmet on the market is also available in a specially engineered model for women. Extensive research by Schuberth engineers and product developers confirmed that women generally have a distinct facial shape, smaller headsize and narrow cheekbones. The C3W is made with slow memory foam to address slight variations of shape, providing greater comfort and ultimately greater safety for women riders. The helmets soft, jersey knit Microfiber lining is antibacterial, antiallergenic, and easy to clean.
The C3Ws revolutionary compact design boasts the same ultra quiet sound level below 84dB at 60 MPH and ultra light weight of close to 1650 grams (3.6 pounds). Made of lightweight fiberglass reinforced with Duroplast and a layer of Dyneema, the C3W is as technically superior as the award-winning C3. Optimized in Schuberths own wind tunnel, the helmet is ideal for long distance and sport riding.
This helmet meets DOT FMVSS 218 compliance in addition to the rigorous ECE standard for safety. Mandated by more than 50 countries worldwide, the ECE 22.05 standard is the most common international standard for motorcycle helmets.
