have you worn them? (either one?)

Most people can only wear one or the other because of the shape... One will fit good the other does not. (IMHO) I find the Suomy to be uncomfortable for me, but the Arai fits great...

Suomy do not fit me so my choice is the Arai
look into the 0GK FF5 if you want a unique lid

Cant say much about the suomys, but i can tell you the rx-7 is one hell of a helmet and the best i have owned to date. that suomy flower design is pretty crazy though.

YOU have to try them on... I've had a helmet that I thought was good... wore it for an hour and it gave me the WORST headache ever... not good on a three hour ride!

the suomy extreme is a better helmet than the spec 1r.

the extreme is what competes with the rx7 corsair.

get an extreme barros lid or extreme flower

^^^^SWEET LID...but I have an Arai RX-7 and love it, fits me great. If I were to get another arai though it would def, without a doubt be the new Haga lid. That thing is ridic.

I'm partial to Arai but I really wish my head would fit into a Suomy.

He is right.........Suomy extreme is the same level as the RX-7. I have both helmet and would have to say that they're both really good helmet. Maybe the Arai is just a little ahead of the Suomy.

suomy extreme fabrizzio, best looking helmet ever fits me great, and only loud if you move your head more than 1 degree to either side up or down, otherwise my ears are fine.
