I guess it depends on what you call quiet. I think my new HJC AC-11 is fairly quiet but something that was totally quiet would have to be totally sealed to your head. If it was, it'll be totally an oven in the summer heat, too. It's a compromise. If the noise is troublesome, wear ear plugs. That's what many riders do. Foam throw aways available in a bag from the drugstore should do the trick.

Quiet Helmet

My Arai is pretty quiet. Light too. On long rides I wear earplugs though. Keeps you from getting too tired...

I have an Arai. I think it is the lesser of all the evils.

Like others one needs to use ear plugs & the soft foarm throw-away ones are the best.

With my Shoei, that some claim to be the quitest, I have a soft vinel coin container with 3 or 4 set of ear plugs & one of such container in my 3 major m/c jackets along with some still not opened paper or plastic containers of the soft foam ear plugs in another pocket or two, just in case one hits the dirt, or I can see it is time to replace a set.

Admittely I am a bit of a die-hard when it comes to hearing, but so many well below my age are with hearing aids to even young people in their 20s & 30s.

Just for the record the KBC Racer-1 is not quiet. Nor is it free from drafts. Wish I would have bought another HJC AC-11. That thing was pretty quiet and nice and soft inside.

I've got 3 Shoei's (2 X-11's and a RF-900) and by FAR the quietest helmet I've had is.....

a Shark RSF...... no doubt....... Hard to find, but waaaaaayyyyy quieter than any Arai or Shoei I've ever tried.
