Agree 100%. They feel small at first but break in nicely. Great helmet.

they do run a bit tight. and they are loud.

but high quality; light weight shell, and smaller shell, nice lookin. comfy if u have the right shaped head. pricey....but well worth the money


after doing my homework and reading reviews... i was SOLD. i feel safer wearing it!

Great helmet and for me the fit is true, large. It is a bit louder than other helmets like my Scorpian, but not a big deal. You'll be very satisfied.

I'm still breaking mine in. Important, Suomy runs one size small. Mine was very loud at the outset, but the owner's manual showed how to adjust the visor for a closer fit which helped a lot.

At this point I'm glad I bought it.

I love mine light,well built and looks nice! bought a small cause I wear small in most helmets yes I know I have a tiny head lol.. But for some reason my helmet didn't break in correctly still kind of bite my cheek on the right side. If I get another one soon I'll buy a M or want to get a agv rossi helmet!

I have a medium and a small. I use the small for the track and the medium for when I used to ride the street. Now it is just a back-up helmet.

Great, I wear med on nolan and kbc, and I got mine in large, paid like 122 for it shipped, it was used but the guy stated that he used like 3 times and still had the bag and even the box, so I think I did good on it.
