    Who is "We"? People might be more likely to answer your survey if they knew who was asking the questions.

    Looking at all the pros and positives for the MT range, what is the real motivation to go for a SOL Helmet?
    I am upgrading my bike to either a R3 or RR310 in a couple of months, and want a helmet upgrade too.

    I have looked at the MT range but am more impressed by the SOL S2 range, design and glamour arent things I care about, only pure play protection.

    The wind noise, I hear, is a major drawback in the Sol series, but is it really a deal breaker?
    Can someone please help me with a pick then?

    Budget around 7k.

    Cheers!

    I have got SOL-68S and been using it for last 2.5 years now.
    Coming to noise issue, it's only felt when there is heavy cross wind or you are doing above speed of 100-120 kmph depending on situation. Up till the speed of 80 kmph, you won't hear much noise which I think is decent enough.

    But there is nothing world changing bad in SOL which might change your decision. It's a good heavy helmet ( you will get adjusted to weight, don't worry) with pretty good cushions, double D-ring, wide view visor. Only down point I feel about SOL missing is anti-fog which can be seen in MT, SMK, etc.

    As you are planning to get a good 300+cc bike take your time and decide to go for only the best, don't adjust in that. With budget of 7K you have a limited choice and I request please try and buy. Don't go over looks or any other features (tinted visor, addn. Sun shield, etc) they are secondary. Primary focus should be on shell dynamics and strength and ability to absorb impact. Other plastic gimmicks are also important, but as I said secondarily.


    Hope you will find some relevant info.

    Yes absolutely, like I said, I am sold on Sol, but MT and SMK etc. seem to be the ones in vogue, so trying to understand why?
    Also when you say that I have a limited choice with a budget of 7k, what do you suggest? I go up to 10k? If so what are the new choices that warrant this move .
