Hello,

I am looking to purchase one of these two helmets next week. I have tried both on for a lenghty period (new so i couldn't ride with it unfortunately) and they both fit very well. Does anyone have one of these helmets and would like to offer a personal opinion?

I am most concerned about wind noise? Thanks in advance for your response

I have both of them, and I have to say that they both are AWESOME helmets! You cannot go wrong with either one, but the Astral is a bit quieter, since it does not have the same ventilation at the Quantum. Both do make some noise though.

Good luck!

Go quantum...its the racier of the 2 helmets....great ventilation...and noise is not too bad once you get used to it...and you should be wearing ear plugs anyway to protect your hearing!

The main difference between the two is the shape.  the Quantum is a short oval whereas the Astral is a medium oval.  The Astral vents are easier to open and close with gloves on.

Neither of those is really that loud. You want loud, try an old RX7-RR3. Sounds like a damn freight train running through your head. I have the RR4. It's a little bit quiter, but still loud. You cannot beat the ventilation in that sucker, though.

I have both as well. Astral is a wee bit quieter & easier to manage with gloves on. The Quantum is a bit louder, much better airflow, and still manageable with gloves on. I actually like my Quantum better

I have an Astral, & I love it. I ride alot at night & my shield on my old lid (hjc) would always fog up. The ventilation on the Arai is much better & the shield never fogs up on me.
