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.
