The activity of the Italian company, since its foundation in 1997, is strictly oriented towards the racing world, where it gains valuable insights and informations for the development and creation of helmets.
In 2000, Suomy signed a partnership agreement with Ducati, one of the leading motorcycle manufacturer in the racing world. Thanks to this collaboration, the most talented Ducati riders, engaged in the Superbike World Championship, start using #SuomyHelmets.
In 2001 Suomy achieved the first important result, winning the first World Title with Troy Bayliss, a legend of the SBK World Championship. He confirmed his World Title in 2006 and 2008 too. During the same years Suomy sponsors riders of the caliber of Troy Corser, Aaron Slight, Ben Bostrom , Scott Russell and Ruben Xaus. Subsequently, Neil Hodgson in 2003 and James Toseland in 2004 and 2007, will be proclaimed SBK World Champions.
In 2003 Suomy became the lead actor in the 250 GP Championship with Manuel Poggiali‘s World victory. The 2000s are also characterized by Suomy’s debut in the MotoGP World Championship thanks to the sponsorship of two icons of the worldwide motorcycling: Loris Capirossi and Max Biaggi. And the “Corsaro”, during his long history as #SuomyAmbassador, won two SBK World Championships in 2010 and 2012.
Thanks to both these victories and the recognizability of its racing graphics, Suomy immediately becomes a premium brand synonymous with reliability and high performance, recognized by both professional riders and enthusiasts motorcyclists.
The Italian brand continues its growth, making progress with important technological investments and developing a top-notch Design and R&D department.
And, while Suomy’s wall of fame continues to fill up with unforgettable successes in the racing world, winning more than 20 World Titles, the helmet’s collection is, year after year, enlarged and improved, enriching itself with a wide range of models, from the track to off-road, passing through sport touring and jets.
The 2014 is a fundamental year for Suomy which is acquired by a prestigious private investment fund that takes ownership of the brand.
Thus the collaboration between SUOMY and KYT, top brand of an important Indonesian production group that holds 70% of the Asian market, materializes to create new growth prospects and a two-way exchange of information between the two companies.
The production dpt. moves overseas, but the Design, R&D, marketing and sales departments, as well as a large part of the raw materials and components of the helmets, remain #MadeInItaly.
The company’s growth is increasingly tangible and new sponsorship projects are born in all the racing sectors, from MotoGP to TT, from MXGP to Dakar.
The modern history of the #SuomyRiders boasts talents as Andrea Dovizioso, Francesco Bagnaia in MotoGP, Peter Hickman and Gary Johnson in the road racing races.
The 2019 has been announced as the new Suomy Era.
The design, a synthesis of a deep and integrated study aimed at achieving ultimate performance, was done with crucial contribution of the top level MotoGp and Road Racing riders, since the concept phases.
The Suomy collection is full of new graphics and ever more advanced technical details, which will satisfy all the riders, starting from the youngest to the most demanding.
It’s a collection that fully represents the substance of this Italian heart company.
