Well, *I* tested a Schuberth Concept back in 2004. The helmet faired much better than my foot, considering. So I am on my second Schuberth.

Dave,

What do you think about the wind noise in the Symax? Do you wear ear plugs when you ride?

TIA,

I also have a melon-dome, so far the only helmet which does not give me claustrophobia is the Symax. Just trying to figure out which has the best ratings Ė If most people on this site ride ATGATT may as well know how it all rates.
