I have spoken to a handful of customers lately who call and ask about Suomy helmets and what is going on with them in the USA. Contrary to popular rumor, Suomy helmets continue to be distributed widely in the United States. A few months ago Suomy changed how and who handles the importation of their helmet line in the United States, no longer working with an entity called "Suomy USA", the original importer of the Suomy line-up. Whenever there's a change of guard between manufacturers and distributors of a product, it tends to cause confusion for the consumer, as in this instance.
Suomy helmets are imported strongly in the USA direct from Italy. They are distributed by two main US distributors, one of them being the largest distributor of motorcycle parts in the world, Parts Unlimited. In other words, Suomy is in good company in the USA. Part Unlimited is the same company distributing Alpinestars, AGV, ICON and others.
Suomy Helmets, Suomy spare shields and all Suomy Helmet replacement parts are available at Motostrano.com to the retail consumer.
