Yesterday, I went to Cycle Gear for some goodies and got to looking at their helmets. Their Bilt Solar helmet was on sale from $199 to $99, so I decided to pick one up. I used it today and I have to say that it is the noisiest helmet I have ever had. Absolutely pitiful and it proves that looks can be deceiving. I have no idea why somebody can't make a helmet that is quiet and yet safe. This thing is unbelievable and I will be taking it back. Now I know that you get what you pay for but these helmets are stamped out like cookies and there is no reason to have to scream to hear you own voice. It was quieter on the bike without the helmet than with it. Just a comment about good money chasing bad stuff. Unbelievable to say the least since its a 60 mile trip one way to take it back through Austin traffic.
