All,
You have probably heard me gripe about wind noise. In looking for the perfect helmet I ran across this website. Shubreth Helmets leads the pack in noise reduction. This is a cool demo of their product in a wind tunnel.

click a helmet
anti noise technology (bottom left of page)

This helmet claims a 50% reduction in noise.

Looks like a Canadian importer was selling them for $765.00 US. :cry:

Schuberth

I ordered mine tonight from Extreme Sports. Price...450 bucks. My hearing is worth it (if it works). I'll let you all know in a week or so. They do a 30 day no questions asked return if you don't like it. :roll:

The helmet reduces the noise level by about 10 db over the helmet they were comparing it against (whichever helmet that may be... obviously they chose a poor one)... And standard helmet and 10 cent foam ear plugs would most likely reduce the noise level even more... Hope it works for you.

10db

10db is actually a reduction of 50% of the audible noise....FYI. This is huge. Again....we'll see. Oh, it's hard to find these things. I was just told by the company that they can no longer import. they are just selling off their stock. I dunno....not sounding so good!

Foam earplugs works for me.
Couple of bucks for a 5 pack. :wink:
