Quiet Helmet recommendations

Hi Guys,

Its' time for a new helmet, I ride a street triple so I'm in a upright position. I find ear plugs very uncomfy  and so are looking for a full face helmet that is quiet at high speeds, I have about £400 to spend have looked at Shoei Quest, HJC R-PHA 10+ and Arai Rebel and liked them all in the shop. Does anyone own these helmets and what do they think of them or have any other recommendations.

Hi

Had many helmets over the years, but now on my second Schuberth. Quietest I've had.

RSR2s are quiet, I knew they would be thanks to reviews on webbikeworld,  Maybe not quite Schuberth quiet, but even that won't be silent, or safe for your ears.


If you ride fast and often then your ears need plugs, regardless what lid you wear.  I've found nothing as comfortable as Alpine MotoSafe.  I've tried foamies, putty, custom silicon, but it's always back to the Alpines.

The Quest

I've found it okay but not the quietest. Fit the chin guard and wear a scarf and it's much, much better. I can't use ear plugs as they set off eczema and without the scarf I notice the effect on my hearing after riding.


I use a scrim scarf which traps a load of air and as a result is good in hot or cold weather.

EDIT: Oh and I'm aware wearing a scarf may make you look like a dick but I'm not only used to it, I relish in it.
