I am in the market for a new helmet. I like that Ducati uses Suomy helmets. I think Suomy's are made in Italy which is another plus.

If you were buying a new helmet today and had a 400 budget would you get a Suomy? I live in Atlanta, GA so heat is a factor. I don't ride unless the temp is above 45 degrees. Do you think the Suomy Spec1r will provide adequate ventaliation?

Thanks for your opinions.

i just picked up an icon mainframe from atlanta tri-duc. it fits great; it's dot/snell 2000 approved and vents *really* well. i have yet to ride it in our beloved sweltering summers, though.

not really any info on suomy, but then again, none of the suomy's really fit me well.

Hey Scooby, is that helmet really as noisy as people say? I ride with a guy who says it's the noisiest helmet he's ever owned. ::) What's you take on that?

scooby...what size helmet do you have? What is the circumference of your skull? I am thinking I need an XL becuase I wear an XL in an Arai RX7. My head is 59-60 cm. How much do the inside pads flatten out after prolonged wear?

I wear a size medium in the Suomy; my skull is huge to compensate for my enormous brain... Ok, never mind. I don't know, but in a Shoei helmet I wore a size small... The padding does not mash down too much though. The price is right at sub $200.00...

Sumoy are really good helmets, I really wanted to buy one, but they didn't fit my skull. They *seemed* to be a really good quality, and i liked the material the liner was made of, it was very soft.
