Those with Suomy Spec1R.thinking about upgrading from Gunwin
 
Thinking about getting the black Bostrom Spec1R. Its not that I NEED it, just like the helmet. Think it is worth the upgrade?

I've upgraded from a gunwind to a spec1R

Things I've noticed:

-much much better ventilation
-slightly lighter, not sure by how much though..
-lining is a lot more comfortable, feels softer
-slightly louder than gunwind

I'm not sure if its worth the upgrade, I did it mainly because I needed a spare helmet for pillions. Thats said, it is a very good helmet though, you just might need to invest in some earplugs.

well.. dunno if this is gonna help, but I went from a $50 bell helmet to a Spec1R Martin helmet.. and I love it. Maybe its just mental, but I feel much more secure in the Suomy. Doesn't fog up as bad as my bell did, and is much more comfortable. Maybe you should try it on and see, unless u just want to get it for the looks, then i say just go for it :bounce:
