Suomy Helmets

Suomy introduces new helmet

Suomy USA is proud to announce the introduction of Suomy's new premier sport helmet, the revolutionary new SPEC-1R. This helmet was designed from the bottom up to master the rigors of world championship road racing, with contributions from top MotoGP racing stars Max Biaggi, Loris Capirossi, and WSB Superstars Ben Bostrom and Troy Bayliss.

Even the moniker SPEC-1R demonstrates its racing heritage as an abbreviation for Specification #1 Racing, Suomy's factory development designation. Two dynamic new replicas will be worn this year by AMA stars Ben Bostrom and Anthony Gobert .

New features abound on this revolutionary helmet

(1) Aerodynamic outer shell design made from structurally enhanced fiber composite weave;

(2) Three shell sizes with built-in spoiler;

(3) Recessed high efficiency diffuser;

(4) Revolutionary negative space EPS crush zones;

(5) 3D removable & washable inner comfort liner;

(6) 3D removable washable and adjustable contoured cheek pads; and

(7) a Sure Lock visor closure.

The SPEC-1R is built to the B.S.I. 6658 Type A certification, guaranteeing third party batch testing of each production run to assure performance compliance with the most exacting quality controls in the industry.

Rick Marlin remarks, Suomy astonished many industry insiders with how quickly its Gunwind Helmet established the brand in the premium helmet sector. Now, with the introduction of the new SPEC-1R, Suomy strengthens its position as a major force in that highly competitive category.

With its exceptional ightweight at 1250 grams, the SPEC-1R challenges to be the lightest, street legal, race approved helmet on the market today. The enhanced safety testing incorporated in the B.S.I. 6658 Type A certification places Suomy in the vanguard of the U.S. motorcycling community; this safety standard demands higher quality controls, more comprehensive testing and standard verification than previously available in the U.S. market. Americans demand nothing less than the very best technology available, and the new SPEC-1R meets this challenge.

The SPEC-1R is offered in 12 race replica designs, all delivering the show-stopping graphics for which Suomy is well known. Seven solid colors complete the SPEC-1R line up. With an extremely competitive MSRP of $399.95 to $499.95, the new SPEC-1R is sure to excite the passion of riders and catch fire with dealers as the new quality premium helmet.
