So I replaced my C3 two years ago with a Shoei Neotech. The Schubert was a good helmet, but I like the Shoei more. I haven't noticed any QC issues. I do like being able to flip up the visor for air.
The ratcheting strap was pretty good on the Schubert but not a deal breaker.

Just received the GT Air Hi-viz today. Only had time to take it out for a quick spin today. Only did about 10 miles. Seemed a bit louder than the C3, but again, the ride was very short. Also, it was a very windy day here. The fit/comfort is perfect, pinlock visor worked great (39 degrees) and I love the the Hi-viz!

I just read an article stating the human eyes respond quicker to light than color. Take away was that better lighting will get more attention than hi-viz jackets and helmets. I can't remember the publication.

It's not an either/or situation, you can use lighting AND hi-viz to be seen. Helmets can be seen from angles that block lighting.

Went for a little longer ride wearing my GT Air yesterday. It was less windy than my previous test ride. I am 100 % satisfied with the wind protection, fit and comfort. Not sure why this wasn't the case, but my sun visor didn't appear to fog up like my C3 Pro, in similar temps...certainly not complaining!
