Hi,

I did a search and I didn`t find any thread about it. I have a KBC VR-1 euro but I find it a little bit noisy when I do highway or go higher than 60mph for a long time. My ears buzz a little bit after my ride.

So I want to know if you suggest any helmet less noisy that my KBC, or you all wears ears plug?

Thanx for the comments.


Ride safe!

I love suomy lids, but they are noisy...Might want to stay away from them if you are looking for a quiet helmet

did you ever think about ear plugs?

I wear earplugs. I have a 2001 Shoei X-Tec and the Vemar Carbon Fiber helmet. I wear earplugs not only for the wind noise but also for the Devil slip on.

I just put my Suomy Gunwind away for a Shoei X-11 and I love it, but it's noisier than fuck. With plugs or ipod in it's not too bad, but that's what you get with helmets that vent.

Yep, just wear some earplugs. You can buy a box of 'em for $10 and they'll last you for years.....and they really help to reduce fatigue when riding.
