Schuberth C5 – Modular Helmet

Schuberth C5 - Modular Helmet

Why?

Schuberth is well known for the extremely high-quality helmets they produce, and the C5 is a completely new helmet for 2022.

The shell is made with a new proprietary method called Direct Fiber Processing (DFP) that forms an extremely strong shell yet keeps the weight low. Schuberth always aims for a very quiet helmet, and aerodynamics play a huge part in that. This is a very stable helmet, and thanks to a newly designed liner should provide very good airflow to keep that big head of yours cooled off.

The helmet is plug-and-play prepared for the SC2 communication system, having the speakers and microphone already preinstalled.

This is a premium modular helmet that can be had in a 3XL.

Key Specs & Head Shape

  • Head shape: Intermediate oval
  • Weight: 3.9lbs at 3XL
  • DOT or ECE? DOT certified

We have not yet tested the C5, but we do know that one will be coming our way relatively soon, so keep your eyes on webBikeWorld for that review! See all our Schuberth coverage for more.

Best 4XL/5XL Motorcycle Helmets

BILT Techno 3.0 Modular Sena Bluetooth – Modular Helmet

BILT Techno 3.0 Modular Sena Bluetooth - Modular Helmet

Why?

Consider this a Leatherman Tool but for your big head!

Bilt uses an injection-molded composite shell structure with a clean overall shape. The Techno 3.0 has an internal sun-visor, but what really boggles my mind is the built-in Sena Bluetooth comm system. Amazing.

The integrated Sena system is pre-installed—so you don’t have to worry about struggling to install speakers, a microphone, and the control unit into your helmet.

Bilt offers sizing all the way up to 5XL, and 4 color choices.

  1. I’m a fan of the AFX FX-39DS, which went up to 4XL, and fit my 27 1/2 inch head. Unfortunately, they have been discontinued. I grabbed up a couple spares. How long, really, can we keep using a helmet? How long is their shelf life? Can helmets be refurbished?

    1. Hi there my name is lani I’m from Auckland New Zealand. I’m looking for a open face helmet for a 80cm to 90cm head

  2. I have both the Vega Altura 5XL and HJC CL- Max 2 5XL. Some of the newer HJC 5XL are smaller than the older, you have to try. The Vega Altura 5XL is the largest helmet I ever try, considerably larger than the HJC around the skull crown area.

  3. Hi i hope someone can help as i need a motocross helmet in 4x, my head is 67cm to 68cm and i’m in the UK but don’t mind importing it, i’m really struggling to find anything

  4. I have a 26 in (66-67cm) long oval head and the Bell Qualifier xxxl fits! a lil snug. Funny, cause none of the other 3x bells do. the rogue does if I take out the liner, but the wind noise and comfort was bad. I’m still looking for a half helmet.. the bell xxxl pit boss was way small. Anyone know of a huge half helmet that still affords some protection?

  5. Hi I am interested in the HJC Max flip front size 3XL and you confirm in stock and colour choices. Also where are you guys? I am in new zealand so what price will the helmet be to me please? plus how long to arrive aprox? Thanks
    Had a Santessi prior and it was quite noisey.
