Well i rode with my new Suomy todayand here is the comparision to my Arai Nakano.

-The Suomy has better airflow almost twice as good as the Arai.
-Suomy is lighter, fits better, and IMO has a better shape to it. It seems that it's more aerodynamic with less resistance when I ride.
-Comes with an Iridium lense
-Lens system is easier to replace, opens and shuts smoother, and locks tighter when fully closed.


Now for the down side, It's louder! Not to the point where it's defening but they do recommend earplugs when you ride. But i guess thats the price you pay when you get that much flow.
-I love the graphics on it but i like the Nakano better IMO.

Hope that helps out when you plan on purchasing another helmet.

If you think that's loud try riding with my kbc!! This is by far the loudest helmet ever, I hate this thing.
