X-11 feels really good, while Secr1R extreme takes time to wear in and after a week feels good. X-11 lighter than Suomy. Suomy is more noisy too but not by far.

Wrong! Suomy is lighter than Shoei and Arai, and it has better safety standards than both of them. However, it is a smaller helmet, and if you've got a big head your shin could touch the inside-front shine part of the helmet.

Suomy is noisy like Arai. Shoei is quieter but heavier. Any of those helmets are great. Suomy has better graphics too.

I'd imagine that the Suomy is a better helmet. But for the price it's tough to beat the KBC VR-2 Mladin replica. I have it on backorder from mawonline, $186
