More airflow for Schuberth C3

I know that Schuberth designed the visor to not stay up while riding. I like to crack my visor to the first notch while riding to allow for more air flow and sometimes, I even pop the thing wide open (don't worry you ATGATT preachers, I wear bifocal safety glasses ;) ). So all the while when riding, I pop the visor up and BLAM, it slams shut unannounced. After having the helmet for a few years, I'm kinda tired of the slam. I've tried the CD spindle foamy things, but that didn't work. While walking through my garage the other day I spotted the perfect solution,.....water hose washers. I placed one on each side of the visor at the pivot points, they fit perfectly in the small void. Gave the helmet a test run on my wifes bike (minimal wind protection), no slammy shut. A test run on my bike and no slammy shut. So now, I can place the visor in whichever notch I want and not have to be hit with the slamming shut......life is good.

I replaced my original C3 visor because it had some annoying scratches. $89 ouch!

However, the new visor does not slam shut. It works like it should have from the beginning.

The original Schuberth C3 had the visor issue where it would close with the slightest wind. They came out with a fix that they will send you for free if you call their customer service number. They made a beefier ratchet connection that holds the visor in position. It works like a charm. I ride with my visor open to the first notch all the time with no issues since the fix.
