    1. I want a helmet with mininal wind noise @ speeds of 90-110kmph.

    2. It should be safe to protect my skull. Budget is between 5-7K to be very honest. I can stretch if the helmet is value for money.

    3. It should be able to accomodate a action camera along with scala bluetooth as I plan to purchase these all in the coming months.

    Only full face and no non-nense helmet.

    I am going to make this purchase in coming month or in October for sure.

    Cheers,
    Sanjay
    Sorry to break the party, brothers!!!

    Can somebody reply on my request, I felt it was left out.

    I have read the reviews and short listed on the following:

    1. MT track spirit
    2. SOL (Unicorn 2, 3, 68s, metalman)
    3. LS2 wolf air go

    Which one I should go for. All brands are nice and produce quality helmets. Will MT be more VFM than SOL.

    On a personal note, I like the look and design of SOL and MT are bit on conservative side.

    Cheers,
    Sanjay

    Try them all. Choices differ from person to person. I'd say MT>SOL (just because of availability issue w.r.t visor, clamps etc)>LS2 (you never know which one is fake).

    Thanks!!! Divya bhai.

    But I need something which has lesser wind noise. ls2 out. Only SOL and MT remains.

    Reviews regarding both these brands regarding wind noise from fellow users will be useful.
    @Divya, I checked a thread sometime ago amd saw that you are using or have used SOL helmet extensively. Review please, in terms.of safety, fit and wind noise.

    Fellow MT owners can please share information on wind noise.

    Not asking about quality as both are quality and well built.

    Cheers,
    Sanjay

    I'd say try them out and get whichever fits best, LS2 Wolf and MT track spirit having air go system are likely to fit better.

    SOL Metal Man2 - Awesome helmet! Have survived a big crash with it that lead to multiple fractures and my head was safe with no external impact. I got the helmet extensively checked at the dealer to see if there is any crack in the foam or the shell, but nothing was found. There was just 1 scratch on the outside.

    It IS heavy. But doesn't cause neck/ear pain.
    Wind noise appears north of 90 kmph and starts deafening you north of 115-120 kmph.

    both have the same Axxis shell. so size wise no difference. slightly bulky compared to LS2 range.

    i have the white evo in M size and i think you should not go all black (Just a thought)
