Schuberth C2 Helmet life

I've had my C2 flip front for 2 years and done around 10k miles with it. Could now do with new visor, but helmet not as quiet as it was and venting not great in this warm weather. :doubt: Debating how much more life in it and whether to put new visor money towards a new helmet?? Need something quiet as fair bit on motorway on a street triple. Also like the flip down sun visor... Any thoughts? keep or replace?? Thanks!

Helmet life

I usually buy a new lid every three years or so but I don't ride every day.  I tend to find that, after that amount of use, the lining is past its best.  Some brands are of course better than others and I found that the lining on my old AGV's started coming apart after a couple of years.  Shoei last better in my experience.  This year a bought Shark - didn't actually need a new lid but saw the Union Jack paint job and just had to have it.  It is very comfortable and looks well made.

2 years

I've had my Shark S800 for 2 years, it's been worn most days and I've covered approx. 12000 miles. I've replaced it because it's become noisy and loose with use.

i get

about 4 years from my shoei, riding most days. Helmet always stays in good condition but lining wears out and goes loose.
Shoei lasts the longest in my experience. Fits my odd headshape.

Shark RSR2

Still feeling good after three years of daily all weather use plus weekend play, around 30k miles.  Slightly looser trimmings now, hence slightly noisier, and certainly looking a bit tattier.  Now on to second visor, but otherwise entirely serviceable. I'm impressed.

Keep

Clearly you spent a lot of money originally on the helmet, I would keep it if you haven't frequently  dropped it as you can buy the liners new from helmets sites such as Lids Direct.
