Ok just finished a 2000 mile ride through the Smokey Mnts. I ride a 2004 BMW r1150r with a mid faring. I found the wind noise to be extremely loud and the helmet leak water on to the face mask! Needless to say I am not overly impressed with this helmet.

Fit is a little tight. Cost is a little high. Product is well worth it.

The star ratings aren't really relevant in my case. Previous helmet: Shoei modular. Reason for replacement: 6 years old. Stinky non removable head liner. Reason for S2 purchase: Name. Reviews. Price (on sale). Wanted a quieter helmet, decided to move away from modular. Removable head liner. My thoughts: Helmet arrived and fit well as described. For the majority the quality is good. The bottom trim ring around the helmet fits poorly and simply feels cheap. The way it's assembled and mounted onto the helmet is disappointing. It could be because it's an interchangeable part if you upgrade to the Bluetooth headset. That shouldn't mean those of us that don't do the upgrade shouldn't enjoy the quality, especially at this price point. First ride out I noticed the airflow, and there was lots of it. As soon as I opened the front vent at my chin the noise that resulted was enough for me to decide to close the vent. I'll take less airflow over more quiet. Horribly loud. Sigh, back to earplugs. The internal visor left me scratching my head when I first saw it. It didn't seem to lower enough. Once out on the road and in the sun i noticed that the visor worked very well, easy and smooth to operate. The thing that stood out the most was because of the gap I was able to see my mirrors and gauges clearly and not through a tint... almost like bi-focal glasses. I'd just have to look down and it was clear and easy to see. I'm not sure if it was designed that way but if it was... Great idea! Shoulder checking with this helmet is a bit of an issue. The chin part hits my shoulder / chest when I turn my head, the wind seems to catch the chin too. To compare I tried my Shoei and I had full range of motion and less wind drag when shoulder checking. Very noticeable difference.

Best helmet I've ever owned. I'd highly recommend it. Light comfortable and great features.

I had a C3 and could immediately tell that the Pro is lighter in weight and has a more effective cooling/venting system. It's really everything I hoped for in a top of the line modular helmet. The clear visor amd sun visor work excellent. Although a bit pricey, I would buy this helmet again.

C3 Pro does a great job in reducing noise - as advertised. The helmet is very light and is a pleasure on long rides of five hour plus. The fit for me was a bit on the tight side (medium), but I was able to replace the cheek pads with large pad, which made a big difference.The helmet is quieter than other brands, but I still get wind noise at higher speeds. The Sena 10u Bluetooth System installed easily into the helmet. This is the most comfortable helmet I have ever owned.
