New Lid

I'm new to the bike scene and was looking to buy a new helmet. I want to spend around 3bills for one. Does anyone know a good helmet that does not have that much wind noise. I know that is not a lot to spend on a helmet. But i want to get the most out of one with that money that I have to spend.

In that range I would try on Scorpion rx700 and ex1000, HJC (not sure of exact models), Shark (not sure of exact models here either) and Icon Airframe helmets

also pay attention to ebay. it's not unusual to find a suomi spec 1r extreme (arguably the best helmet on the market) for $300 in "as new" condition.

For about $350 you can get a solid color Arai or shoei, makes Scorpian, Sparx and HJC feel like junk




Theres a reason why those helmets are cheap
