I have a soumy vandal helmet, only worn it a few times on the track and I find it great. Super light. Wore arai for years and I found them super comfy, like you could ride away for the weekend camping and get drunk and sleep in it.

But the brow on the aria's were too low for me, I just put up with it for ages. What a difference.

Some soumy helmets are made in Asia and some are or were Italy. I think they ceased production totally in Italy.

Also crash tested quite a few fox and troy lee mx helmets over the years. I find the fox a more snug fit, don't rattle about or shift on bigger landings/rhythm sections. The troy lee seemed a bit light. Would like to try the new one, but they are about $900 at the moment. Friends store sells both brands and I get the fox at a great price.

I have this exact Helmet but I rarely wear it. I hate the magnet strap secure thing- it sucks. My magnet actually fell off the strap....

I normally wear my Shoei RF1100 but I am getting ready to replace it with an HJC RPHA 10. The new RF1200 are still priced a bit out of my range
