Suomy vs Shoei Fitting

I'm considering a Suomy Spec-1R helmet and I'm wondering how the fit would compare to my Shoei X-11. Anyone know how they compare? The Shoei fits my long and large dome perfectly, but I'm liking the Suomy graphics.

Re: Suomy vs Shoei Fitting

As you know we had the same Shoei before we decided to wreck them

If the shoei fit the Suomy probably wont. I tried one on a few weeks ago and it just felt akward and definately not as good a fit as the Shoei

Hope that helps Whip

Re: Suomy vs Shoei Fitting

i have a rf1000 shoei in a medium and it fits well. Before that i tried the spec1r and even in large it was too tight around the front of my head.
