nice stuff! in regards to the Bell, have you given it a test run yet? how is the wind noise compared to what you've been using?

After a 100 mile jaunt this evening, I would rate it every bit as quiet as my Simpson. Only thing I noticed, is if I turn my head to the right something lightly whistles... Maybe one of the vents.
Speakers work OK but the higher notes make it through my ear plugs better than Bass... Popping the speakers out of the helmet is a 10 second operation if I decide to go back to my ear plug speakers for deeper richer bass. I did notice that the helmet is quieter with the foam wedges/speaker assy's removed.

I really like the lightness of the Bell. Lightest helmet I have ever used. The field of vision is much wider than some of my other helmets too.
