    My 5 year old Suomy Jump helmet bit the dust last week when my sweat finaly rotted off the dring that holds the strap to the helmet. I liked the Suomy for the ultra light weight, the liner was okay at best, not as comfortable as my old Arai VX Pro3, but not terrible for the price point

    I'm in the market for a new light weight lid and have narrowed my search to the Just1 J12 ($449 MSRP) which I can get for around $200 including an extra liner and cheek pad set(buddy is a dealer for them) but I don't know much about the brand? or the Airoh Twist Helmet which I would have to order from Europe for about $220 shipped to me...I know it's probably not as nice as the Aviator, but I don't want to spend $500 on a lid.

    anyone have any input on either of these helmets? 7-26-2017 11-04-29 AM.png 7-26-2017 11-05-25 AM.png

    Ordered the Just1 J12, should have it tonight. I'll post a review of it compared to the Suomy Jump.

    I was gonna say I have the Leatt 5.5 which is pretty awesome and lightweight as well. I've heard good things about the Just 1 though

    just got home with the new Just1 J12, initial impression is that it feels like a high quality lid, came with a very nice embroidered Just1 helmet cover and Medium fit perfect just like Suomy, perhaps just a tiny bit heavier than Suomy by feel. I will weigh both this weekend and do a full eval on the helmet.

    Looking to do the same as you. Would love to get Airoh Aviator but the price is just too much. I know what your head worth!

    How was the sizing compared to the Suomy ? Where did you get it from? My Mr Jump is also dead.

    sizing seems to be right on with Suomy, maybe a bit tighter in the cheek pads, but I'll have to see if it will break in some. on the scale it's slightly heavier than the Suomy, but I noticed no difference when riding. Still feels plenty light compared to my older Arai's

    I believe you can get them for just over $200

    If anyone is interested in the Just1 J12 carbon helmet. I'm going to sell this one (Medium) and order myself a large. I usually wear a M helmet with size S cheek pads and liner, but Just 1 has 3 different shell sizes that do not allow this. only worn a few times, $175
