Which Suomy did you own? For how long?

Like any other helmet, Suomy Spec 1 R's fit certain shaped heads better than others. You apparently have an AGV head. (that and a secret crush on Valentino Rossi:laughing6 )

All Spec 1 Ride Smart have fully removable liners, they always have, however they don't have a racheting shield, they use a friction design, much like Arai, and the system works very well

As far as ventilation goes, the Spec 1 R works as well for me as my Arai RX7.
It's also served myself and several of my friends well in bouncing across the pavement.


I think its the Rossi thing.

Anybody who says their well ventilated helmet is loud has some personal issues to work out. :laughing6

Anyways, So far I am enjoying my Suomy Spec-1R helmet that I got for an amazing deal @ Motorcycles-Unlimited.

I have always liked the Suomy, great to get some good feedback from people who have ridden and crashed in them.

Suomy Spec 1 saved my melon when it was introduced to T8 @ TWS (Texas World Speedway)... thanks for recommending it, Patrick.
