Re: Suomy Spec-1R

I picked up my new helmet from my dealer on Monday after work. *The guy gave me a good deal on it. *Including another shield for $450. *Bad thing is I had to pay taxes, but I also didn't have to wait for it. *The riding season is quickly drawing to a close here. *

Bostrom Replica

I am really happy w/ this helmet so far. *It is super light! *Especially compared to my HJC, which felt like it weighed about 10 lbs. *The Suomy breaths really well. *There is a breeze on the top of my head and face all the time. *Head checks are really easy. *My old helmet used to hit my jacket, and the Suomy does not. *The clear visor is extremely clear. *I have been really impressed w/ that of all things. *

I am a little disapointed w/ the way the stickers are applied to the covers that cover the sides of the visor. *Looks like they could peal off pretty easily and are actually folded over on the edges where the curve of the surface is extreme. *Not bad, but noticible if you are looking for it. *

I also, wish it was easier to chage the visor. *You need a tool to release the covers, and they are not easy to get back on. *Actually, I probably just haven't learned how to do it yet. *

As far as fit goes, it is a little snug w/ a couple of pressure points, but I think it will break in and be great. *After a 1/2 hour ride last night I could already feel it getting better.

In all I'm really excited about it.

Re: Suomy Spec-1R

Yeah, they are pretty nice helmets. I got the Guareschi model earlier this year. No complaints, except the visor. That thing is a total pain in the butt to change.
