Doesn't seem to work on already reduced items which is a huge shame!
Arrived today - looks good and as fresh as I imagined!
Sharp testing is flawed, says Scientist
Check SHARPS rating before buying - Schuberth tended to score poorly last time I looked.
do not forget that u need a schuberth shaped head some people just dont get on with them
I've got myself all riled up! I'm not going to comment on that point any more. Like I said, it's up to you what you put ultimately, but it annoys me when people spout stuff that is unsupported as if it's fact. I'll say no more.
This is the way.....
I currently have this helmet (although not with the boba fett paint job) For those interested in it I can say it's more race focused than road. The ventilation is amazing, very good airflow. Comes with a clear and tinted visor as standard. Double D ring (as it should be for the track) It rather on the noisey side but nothing that cant be solved by a pair of ear plugs. The best feature of this helmet is the weight. At only 1.3kgs it barely feels like you have one on. Also has a narrow sporty profile so looks good on, less like a like a bobble head than some other brands. All in all I'd highly recommend it Also worth noting if you buy this helmet in the current colour schemes from most motorcycle suppliers it will cost well over £350 The monster decal edition is usually around the £400 mark so bearing in mind that is is the exact same helmet( just with different paint) it really shows how much of a bargain it is at this price
i dont ride a bike but if i did I would buy one :)
Needs matching riding suit boots n gloves. Also laser weapons for all those careless car drivers
I think Boba must have fallen off his bike (or Slave I) and scraped his head across the floor! Needs to be repainted.
I’m glad I’m not the only one. “It’s back!” posts get the same treatment.
Any motorbike deals instead?
looks more like a power rangers helmet than black panther.
SJW movie. seem to get a lot of those recently...
Looks like a Black Power Ranger helmet lol I can't state how over-rated this movie was. 97% on Rotten Tomatoes LMAO. It's more of a 40%~ IMO. I was super excited to see it, with it's stupendously high media ratings. It appears that it was just the media trying to virtue signal; which is absurd to me. In regards to OP's post, it's a COLD from me, sorry.
Same price here. Might be the same company... https://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/motorcycle_parts/content_prod/255500
I contacted Schuberth directly and tehy tell me they do not have a reacall on any of thir helmets. Somebody is telling porkies, and I think I know who it is......
Surprisingly for an expensive brand Schuberth tend to score poorly in SHARPS ratings.
Great name for a company.. helmet city !
I've heard that this helmet has been plagued with issues. A few months after it came out, a local dealer outright told me to stay away and get another. Even called up a previous customer who bought it to back up his claim! (shock) Buyer beware
They recalled mine for quality control issues , maybe you were lucky and got the nicer Chinese ones
Yeah, hadn’t seen that. It’s £5.60 on Amazon and free p&p over £20 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Muc-Off-Bike-Cleaner-Litre/dp/B000NNSXLM/ref=sr_1_3?crid=118C0TFV4X6S&keywords=muc+off&qid=1556570356&s=gateway&sprefix=Muc%2Caps%2C151&sr=8-3
At that price they can muc off!
fenwicks fs1 is the way to go. its a much better product and better value. its a 1Ltr that makes 10 Ltr. it can also be used as a de-greaser.
not really a deal the 1L bottles are £5.30 on amazon with free postage
Some budget helmets score very well on sharp, blunt, oblique and graze impacts but where u gain with these is comfort, low noise and low condensation which makes a huge difference over long distances
That's a good point. One thing to note from the Sharp test is the flip front stayed attached 100% of times in tests, which for me indicated it's as secure as a full face. Also BMW Helmets were rebounded Schuberth too.
I think the Sharps test a bit theoretical and we don't have accidents that way. Also factor in that if the helmet is a LOT more comfortable and quieter you are less likely to be distracted. I believe most of the Police motorcycle riders use the C4.
Check SHARPS : some Schuberth helmets don't score well. https://sharp.dft.gov.uk/helmets/?manufacturer=Schuberth&model=All&type=2
These are the Rolls Royce of helmets - VERY highly recommended
These are any good?
Shame matt black isn't on sale.
I wonder if the sharp score on this will be any better than its predecessor? The R1 was rated 2 stars.
very tempted with one of these. seems like a great deal especially if you take a Bluetooth unit too. heat!
£260 off a good helmet, heat from me. I bought the S2 sometime ago, and i'm still overly impressed by this brand.
I can't see a pun!
Great find, I paid £560 for my C4 in January. It's a cracking helmet (excuse the pun).
Great helmet for Class A builders! Thanks OP!
Always buy my lids from their clearance section
Great deal, hot
I'm reminded of an advert for Bell helmets from the 1960's. 'If you have a $10 head buy a $10 helmet'.
They go for £500 or so on ebay when 3 years old! These jackets are never (or very rarely) cheap.
If he’s looking at this jacket, he’s probably already got one! This is to protect him. Not ride.
Would love a set of rukka gear but can't justify the price to myself, although 2 hours on the M5 the other Saturday did see my revit gortex fail me, was soaked through and I am defo gonna get some new boots, RST paragon 2 had puddles in them.
Apologies for the crap posting, it’s the first time I’ve posted from a tablet.
the sizing runs small, not the helmets... I'll leave you to work that one out :D
Ffs, you couldn't make this up. I'll leave you to buy a smaller sized helmet than you need to fit a larger size head from a range that runs small. I don't think it's the size of Shark helmets that's the problem here.
Not my fault you're hard of thinking.
No. Contradictory nonsense.
No, I never said smaller than label size, I said sizing runs small. The opposite, wasn't the fact I suggested he try on an XL shark a clue? ;)
Not loving the colour scheme (presumably the reason for the discount) but cracking price.
I bet, you like your helmet better.
C4 is a huge improvement on the C3 Pro, I imagine there's a world of difference between C4 and C2.
I owned a C and a C2 and they were great but I bought a Laser 9 months ago and the build quality is better.
My Mrs likes my helmet
My lid arrived today - just registered it for the five year guarantee which I didn't know about. Bargain ☺
I had a C3 Pro and now have a C4. IMHO anyone who can afford the difference should definitely get the C4, it's a complete redesign and a huge upgrade. The visor is bigger, the problem with the seal at the top of the visor is gone, the integrated Sena intercom system is really nifty, and there's a long list of other improvements. This is a better deal: hotukdeals.com ... schuberth-c4-pulse-white-39999-helmet-city-2868454
These are stunningly good helmets
Good price reduction but it's only SHARP rated 3 stars
Excellent price for good lid.
i was thinking to buy a cheap bike for 400 or 500.... But this helmet. ... hmmm
PLENTY ON EBAY FOR LESS
I thought helmet city was what they called Edinburgh?
Visor's are easily swappable between shoei helmets, so if they are, probably wont be a problem unless they go for a new fitting mechanism, which I don't believe they have in the 10+ years I've had mine.
Thanks op, I've got my cbt next monday and I'm starting to look for gear for after. I never knew there were this many bikers on here.
The Gloss Black version seems to be available for £249.99.[img]http://www.helmetcity.co.uk/cart.php?suggest=54c693a631bde[/img]
Looks like they've sold out. I tried to order one online and they "don't have sufficient quantity to fulfil order". I'll try again in the morning. Infinity are out of stock company wide but would not match this price even if they had stock. I wasn't quick enough but at least I have the black one.
Safety is the reason for fluorescent yellow. for me it hopefully means I would never hear the words my nephew hear " I'm sorry I didn't see you" I've got a brand new unworn Matt Black version of this helmet which I'd be happy to sell for the £226 it cost me.
you would pay £300 to look like a giant lollipop
nice price horrible colour still hot for price
because you have an aftermarket exhaust or your bike is just loud? I was more on about the wind noise, shoei go on about their new air intake system and in my experience as they were the only helmets i bought, they've simply gone cheaper in order to compete with all the new manufacturers out there now. Im a believer that a helmet should fit, your cheeks should push up and there should be minimal to no twist movement!, Too many nowadays think oh thats snug when it's clearly not pressing on their face, the shoei's were great, but even with a correct fitment, the air noise was unbearable for me.
Quiet lid or not, I always wear my earplugs. Better to be safe than sorry 10 or 15 years down the line when your hearing has gone to pot.
Makes me want to buy another bike! Aw f*** it, I;ll just walk around with the helmet and pretend:D
I think this was covered previously; https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/schuberth-c3-motorcycle-helmet-270-lidsdirect-1035528 ;)
Schuberth don't do too well in SHARP tests though. 3* for this one: http://sharp.direct.gov.uk/testsratings/schuberth-c3
Think again, is your head really worth £310 ?? :p
You can buy a car for £300.
Superb price, try one on to see if it fits though.
whoa.... that took some time to finally see that £240 saving on retail price aint half bad.. :-))))))
price, ok. but value.....thats subjective on this stuff
You seem to be missing the whole point of HUKD - is it the best price/value?
seems pretty much all bike gear related posts end in a "you'll die first", "no, you will" debate. The choice at the end of the day is "do you like this helmet", "does it fit", "is it suitable for your pocket, head, self worth".....if the answers are YEP...get it in your basket!
Misuse of statistics! FAR fewer bike riders. For a whole collection of reasons, mile for mile you are 11 times as likely to be killed on a bike than in a car! As a biker (and driver) I don't like the statistics but they are reality. Back to the deal - get yourself a SAFE helmet (see SHARPS, etc) - don't pay way over the odds for a fashion statement. £100 will get you something decent if you take your time to choose properly. This helmet gets 4 stars: http://sharp.direct.gov.uk/testhelmetlist?sharp-make=99&sharp-model=RX-7+GP&sharp-type=All&sharp-rating=1&discontinued=1 And here's a 5 star helmet for £90: http://sharp.direct.gov.uk/testsratings/caberg-v2-407 Pay more if you wish but don't claim it makes you safer!
