Suomy experience?

Postby Sportbiker » Thu Feb 25, 2016 10:05 pm

Anyone have experience with Suomy helmets? I'm considering an Apex to replace my current one that I can pickup for ~200. Would get another Scorpion but the 2000s are 390 starting :( Some feedback has been that they're really hot, but I can't tell how true that is.
Shitty planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.

Suomy's are awesome helmets. I can only speak to the Spec 1R-Extreme...but I've had 3 and they're still my favorite lid...plus the graphics are pretty sexy.

You might also look at the HJC RPS-10...or whatever the current top of the line model is. They fit very similar to the Suomy...equally good lid.

Scorpions are pretty nice helmets too. I've had 2 EXO-400's that I used when racing...one of which saved my life. They're a little bigger and don't breath as well, but their anti-fog shield is IMHO the best on the market. It's still my rainy day helmet, never had a fogging problem.

Thanks for the info. After further investigation I found out their sizing is basically off by one and the one I'd come across won't fit. The cross-references really appreciated too.
