Hey everyone, I have a Shoei GT Air II and while it's quieter than my other lids, I get a ton of noise coming from the bottom of the helmet, likely because the neck roll doesn't create a tight enough seal. The helmet fits great otherwise. I know that this is the problem area because if I shrug my shoulders as I'm riding, essentially bringing the bottom of the helmet towards my collar bone, the noise goes away instantly. I ride with earplugs and it's still loud at high speeds.

I'm looking at a few possible "helmet skirt" solutions and I'm wondering if anyone has tried these? 3 different products on Amazon. Not sure which one will do the trick. I just need to block the wind from entering the bottom of the helmet. What are your thoughts?

I have no suggestions, but will be watching this thread with great interest, as I have the same issue. I appreciate, too, those three links…will take a close look at each this evening.

While neck gators can be effective at reducing wind noise, in warmer climates they are unreasonably hot. A better option is to try different wind screens that direct the air flow away from the area around the bottom of the helmet. Either higher or lower can help tremendously.

The other option is to get use to ear plugs.......they work wonders and actually help save your ears and reduce hearing loss
