Does anyone know if there's a difference with fit and interior head shape between the two models? I fit the Spec 1R perfectly, but was thinking about upgrading to an Extreme.

I don't have a Suomy dealer near by so there's no way I can try it on for fit. Could anyone give any feedback?

So.... one extra vent up front makes the Suomy Extreme price tag $150 more than that of the Spec 1R?!?! :eek:
it's a completely different vent configuration. also, if you price the faceshield on the extreme, they're $100+.

those faceshields are iridium coated with an anti-fog coating on the inside.

The liner on the Extreme is Alcantra suede...a lot softer than the Spec 1R.

I wish I used my Spec 1R for more than 5 minutes so that I can tell you if the extra vent makes a big difference. I've crashed (low speed) with both helmets. My next helmet will be a Suomy.

I think most of that price differnce is the face shield.
