http://www.quietridehelmets.com/ Had an opportunity to speak with an ER nurse this past weekend who also rides motorcycles. Not sure what kind of motorcycle he rides but that does not matter. The discussion turned to helmets and a common complaint about them being loud at highway speeds, and the need to wear ear protection. That hampers those of us who like to ride to tunes or have receiving cell phone calls while riding. I know, some will answer about the negativity of taking a call, even hands free but I am so over that already. But this guy told us about the helmet he has which he says is carbon fiber and has inflatable devices that surround the ear, while the speaker is attached. There is a finger pump to inflate the cushion. This is supposed to reduce ambient noise by 65% according the manufacturer of the helmet. Even if you do not listen to music, that is a substantial reduction in road and wind noise. Anyone here have any experience with this helmet? If so, what is your opinion on the capabilities of the lid? What are your likes and dislikes? Would you buy one again and if not, why not?
