Scorpion EXO-1100 Helmet - Solids
Bought this helmet because of the internal visor and the cool graphics(blue street demon). Very comfortable and noise is low,for the price is a great buy and it has a nice style..Airflow is good and effective..Had this helmet for 3 years or more now and still like new..I love this helmet..Only thing with this helmet was the internal visor that when is dropped it can wiggle a little,,so i put bump tape(aviation tape) on the right side of the visor's leg and no more wiggle..now steady like its suppose to be...And i plan to keep this helmet for a year or two more before getting another one..

Toured this helmet new without break-in time so consider that in this review. Looking down at my skull, it's triangular, so the rear "corners" have less than perfect fit in any helmet and this one was no exception, though my old EXO400 came the closest. The Jag performed excellently across a wide range of weather conditions in and out of the Swiss/Austrian Alps from valley to crest, hot to cold, rain and shine. Needed more practice shifting incremental visor positions, but the crack option was truly a breath of fresh air on an RT that blocks all wind. Tight fitment on size medium more so than any other helmet I've owned, so I dare not use the pump feature other than to test it. Chin curtain did it's job, but was shallower than others, but all other venting was superior. Awesome peripheral vision as 180+ degree switchbacks with oncoming traffic required extreme head turns, and that alone was worth the money. I wanted the Internal sun visor to fall another 1/2 inch but I noticed that it made reading the bike gages easier, so kudos there. Low noise, clear antifog wideangle mask, light weight and awesome tech inspired graphics all made this a winner. You just forget you have it on.

I bought this product about one year and six months ago. The air flow and the light weight is what I'm most thankful of this helmet. They only bummer sauce about this product is how easy the face shield scratches. It does good both on and off road for me.

Overall great all around hemet.
Excellent product. My only concern are the (blue) plastic rivets behind the cheek pads that snap into the helmet. Two of them have already broken off. Not sure why they're not metal like the receiving end. Overall it's a very good helmet. Previous lid was an Arai Quantum f.

Amazing helmet for a great price!
Ok so I have owned this helmet for about half a month now and ride just about every day so figured it was about time for a review. First off I got this helmet in the red white and blue version not my first pick bar t every other one didn't have my size. Anyways when I got the helmet I noticed that it looks so much better in person there is actually graphics within the colored lines that kinda reminds me of like a computer motherboard or something but it looks awesome. It's got a great profile and I get compliments all the time. On to fit. When I looked at the size chart it said I should be a medium but I went with my gut and got a large which is what I have worn previously with other helmets. Good thing I did because it fits perfectly not too tight or loose. I love the airfit system because it really snugs up the helmet and gets that perfect fit. It also allows the pads to cup your ears better making this an extremely quite helmet even with every vent open. I do have to say however I have a very long oval shaped head and the chin guard doesn't come down under my chin where it should but still does the job. This is an extremely comfortable helmet as to fit. With airflow this flows a lot of air however you don't exactly feel the airflow. But your head always stays cool so I know it's working and this is Florida heat tested. These vents are also extremely quite no whistle or anything and very easy to operate with a gloved hand. Last the helmet has a pretty good view window I don't typically have a blind spot when using my mirrors. The drop down visor works great but does leave about an inch or so on the bottom that takes state me getting used to. As does the lever for it. Takes a little bit to operate it but may just be because I'm not used to it. The external visor works great with the lock I can never get it to do the crack thing though but no big deal. It's spring assisted and has an amazing seal. Also the tabs on both side are really nice because you don't always have the same hand available and everything. Overall best helmet I've owned nothing bad to say about it great quality especially being on sale.

Great all rounder helmet
This is a great all rounder helmet - if you could only have one, I would suggest this one. I use this helmet during my commute and I can't complain. It does it's job, and well. Air flow is good, sun visor is super useful for those days you are riding both morning and night so you don't have to carry around a spare visor.
Shape is more for round heads - I have a more oval head and can feel myself getting a headache on longer rides. Another minor gripe I have is the top liner does not button near the brow, making it sag a little. Doesn't obscure vision, but can be annoying. Also not recommended for track days/racing - the way the viewport is constructed looking all the way through turns left/right while hanging off obscures your vision and is very distracting.
This helmet seems to have the best field of vision on a standard/more upright seating position.
Summary: Great commuter/touring helmet, not so great at track.

Decent Helmet, Nothing Special
Just about average in every aspect. Made for a more round style head. The shell construction feels fairly solid.
Face shield, drop down visor, and vents feel "clunky" and like they are made of cheap material. They almost feel like they would snap off with minimal amount of force. Granted this isn't a premium quality helmet, I guess I just expected a little more quality.
The face shield is easy to take off, however requires a little more effort than I'd like to put back on.
Good venting. Riding in 90-100 degree heat and don't break a sweat while riding at speed.
Air fit is nice, however if the bladders fail, you won't have a good cheek fit. Obviously.
At 70mph, with all the vents open, this helmet is unbearably LOUD. So unbearable that I had to pull over and buy earplugs. I'm hoping to give the benefit to the helmet due to all vents being open and it not creating a perfect seal around the bottom of my chin, but it was really, really bad. I asked a buddy of mine to switch helmets and he had the same problem. He rides with an open face and the wind noise was just about the same between the two.
Wore it on a 12 hour ride and held up nicely. Neck was a little sore, but I would expect that. Nothing unbearable. No pressure points for my particular head.
All in all a good helmet for putting around town or riding some back roads for the day. I would not recommend for long distance trips at highway speeds though, just for the wind noise. If you can get a better seal than me around the chin, hopefully that will fix the issue for you.
