The Suomy MX Jump helmet weighs a mere two pounds, nine ounces (with graphics). That is almost a pound lighter than the most helmets and a half pound less than most high-end premium helmets (which typically weigh three pounds, three ounces). Suomy was able to knock weight off the MX Jump by using a fiberglass composite shell, dual density foam, lightweight liner and grooved channels in the EPS interior. There aren’t any gaudy wings or accents to add unnecessary weight.
VERDICT: MXA test riders were impressed with the fit and feel of the MX Jump. Not a single rider complained about pressure point problems. The Suomy helmet surrounds the head well, although it doesn’t have the form-fitting feel of a Shoei, Arai or Fly. The MX Jump is in a league of its own when it comes to ventilation at speed. $349.95 (solid colors), $389.95 (graphics), $439.95 (CLS/Monster team replica)?www.suomyamerica.com.
