Let me deal with noise first. This is not the quietest helmet I've ever had, but it's nowhere near as loud as the Suomy Vandal it's replacing. I ride a 2007 Ducati Multistrada, a bike notorious for buffeting and wind noise. All the relevant forums have multi-page threads about "best aftermarket windscreen". Many choose to pursue higher and higher windscreens to fix it, others choose a lower screen to keep the helmet in clean air to reduce buffeting.
I rode my bike wearing the Lazer Kite with the ZG double bubble windscreen it had when I bought it. With that screen, it wasn't wind noise, it was wind roar. However, standing up on the pegs a bit literally cut the noise in half. I then installed the lowest stock-shaped screen, also ZG, and the noise was reduced big time. So, in clean air I think this helmet is reasonably quiet. I do wear earplugs, always have, so it's still an apples to apples comparison. If your bike causes airflow to hit mid-helmet, yeah, it'll be a bit loud. But you have a smaller screen, a small deflector, or even a naked bike you should be all right.
The faceted shell design is unique and complements the angular style of the original Multi, and the pure carbon looks the business. The weave is a good pattern and was expertly laid; carbon with clearcoat over complex surfaces is hard to pull off, but Lazer managed it. The pinlock insert works remarkably well, won't fog even in rain. Works better than any other system I have experience with.
I also have to comment on this helmet's weight. I think light weight is hugely important. It reduces fatigue, especially for those of us who don't have Fernando Alonso's neck. When I got the helmet and took the manufacturer's box out of the shipping box, I wasn't sure the helmet was in it. Light, light, light.
Finally, GET THE PHOTOCHROMATIC FACESHIELD! It works really well, and transitions from a day ride to an evening trip back home seamlessly. If you don't like wearing sunglasses when you ride, this IS the solution.
Great helmet + Revzilla's unrelenting pursuit of world-class customer service = win.

Tried several helmets to try and get the right one. First tried a Shoei GT Air, couldn't get the fit right. Then was going to buy Schuberth C3 but product specialist said they are for more round heads. Lazer Carbon Kite caught my eye and after trying a SM, I settled on MS. Fit is tight, but loosened up some. Helmet is light, airflow decent, cool photo-chromatic pin lock shield.......but the noise. This thing is LOUD and only seems to be getting louder (as strange as that sounds.) I use earplugs but still it is too much. This is not a cheap helmet and is well made, but the noise is rendering it unusable for me. It looks cool but there are better helmets out there at this price point. Don't make the same mistake I made, avoid this helmet. It's all show.
