ALPINE MOTOSAFE EAR PLUGS
You'll probably agree with us when we say that the retro-inspired helmets available on our shop are the best looking helmets around today. There's just something about that sleek, clean look that exudes a touch of class. The helmets we sell are all made up to today's safety standards and they'll protect your head when necessary, but there's one field in which these lids can't quite compete with their 'modern' counterparts: noise reduction. Intrinsic to their design, they have a bigger field of view and a wider opening around the chin bar, which inevitably creates more wind noise when riding along at speed. You'll be absolutely fine at lower speeds (unless you've got obnoxiously loud pipes, you hooligan) but anything over 60mph and you should really consider wearing earplugs, as the below table shows. This is not only the case for Biltwell Gringos, Bell Bullitts and other retro design helmets and open faces, wearing ear protection is important whichever helmet you wear!

Our hearing is especially vulnerable since it doesn't have the ability to repair damage and heal as easily as our other sensory organs. To help motorcyclists prevent irrevocable damage, Alpine has developed the MotoSafe earplugs. These are especially designed to keep out harmful wind noise while traffic, music and intercoms are stil perfectly audible. They come with two pairs of exchangeable wind noise filters: green for medium and yellow for high noise absorption. Alpine Motosafe ear plugs are lauded by many as the best on the market. They're comfortable to wear and you'll be surprised at how well these do their job. You can prolong their lifespan by cleaning them regularly with soap and rinsing with lukewarm water. If they protrude from the ear, remove the filter and carefully cut a little bit off the stem.
