I need a quiet helmet...

I need a new full face helmet and I would like one that is as quiet as possible. Any suggestions or endorsement of your helmet?

Re: Quiet Helmet

Endorsement:
My Schuberth C2 is the best fitting & quietest helmet I've owned.

Re: Quiet Helmet

I also use the Schuberth C2 and it is the quietest flip front helmet I have ever used.

It also has a useful city riding setting for the visor to improve airflow and the inner smoked visor is easy to use with gloved hands.

The cheek pads don't mask the face as much as other helmets which is great for ventilation as there is lots of air to your face but it is a pain in sub-zero temperatures when you will end up with a runny nose if you don't wear a face mask. I also find it more difficult to look over my shoulder wearing this helmet and after 3 months the anti-fog coating started peeling off (I only wash the visor in clear water). Replacement visors are easy to find.

Re: Quiet Helmet

I recently bought an Arai Vector. It is so noisy I have to wear earplugs. Obviously, I can't listen to music. Other than that it seems good, but I will be looking elsewhere for my next helmet.

Re: Quiet Helmet

I bought an Caberg Justissimo GT and it is very noisy, but lately I have been experimenting with spoliers on it and will give you all some pictures when i am finished testing and have a good result
