This is my first helmet and I am happy with the choice I made. Size runs a little small in that other brands I tried on I was a L but I had to go with an XL to get my head in this one. I really like all of the features at the price point...especially the ability to crack the visor for extra airflow. I would most def purchase this helmet again

The ONLY helmet that fits me!
I love my Scorpion EXO-1100. I'm a new rider, and wanted a high quality helmet, as lightweight and quiet as possible. Despite the millions of helmets on the market, I had a heck of a time finding a helmet that fit...my head circumference is pretty small - I had been told by one retailer that I would have to get a "youth" helmet. Even when I found a rare helmet that wasn't too big, within minutes I felt painful pressure points.
The Scorpion EXO-1000, XS, was the exception. It was comfortably snug from the moment I put it on. I have worn it riding close to two hours at a time, and it has remained comfortable during the ride, with no pressure points developing. I know this has to do with the shape of the helmet versus shape of my head...it's just a good match. I would describe it as "intermediate oval,", although I'm no expert on shapes.
I didn't think I needed/wanted the drop-down visor, but didn't have any choice, since it was standard with this helmet. However, I HAVE found it very handy in a pinch, where I've been caught riding into the setting sun.
The helmet is light - no fatigue after a couple hours on the road. And it is fairly quiet. Since it is my first helmet I can't compare to others. But I can say wind noise has not bothered me, even riding without ear plugs. Ventilation is "good enough"...again I can't compare to anything else, but I've worn it in 100 degree heat, and have remained comfortable during the ride. I've installed Sena SMH-10 intercom, so I can communicate with my husband (when on his bike) and the install was easy - very compatible.
I feel very protected in my Scorpion EXO-1100 Helmet - the best insurance I have for personal safety when heading out on the road. EXCELLENT product!
Finally, I couldn't believe how fast the Revzilla delivery was. Thanks!!

Lightweight and well-featured
This is a great helmet - lightweight, fits well once you get one that fits (runs a little small, but that's the worst thing I can say about it). The internal sun visor and airflow is great. The visor quick-release is a little tricky, but you'll get the hang of it if you follow the directions and practice a few times. The padding is well-made and accommodates my Sena SMH10 mic and speakers easily.

Got my Scorpion EXO 1100 from revzilla and I love it. My Contour ROAM2 camera was able to attach to the left side of the helmet where the visor lock and internal visor controls are with little to no problem lining up a close to perfect recording angle. Right away I noticed the helmet was notably lite [previous helmet was a mid-range HJC that served me well for several years], great construction quality, DOT and ECE rated... not a whole lot to not like about it.
The only criticism I could say about the helmet are two things:
1] Depending on your ride, its wind shield, your speed and at certain body positions the wind stream coming off your ride will cause turbulence off the helmet foil and can be a little noisy. Sounds very akin to a rocket booster. It is not at an excessive decibel level and only happens in just the right position and speeds, but I did find it in a natural riding position I sit in for aggressive riding. If I move my head or changed out my windscreen it would go away so this issue is likely a rare scenario that only happens under certain circumstances and configurations.
2] The air vents on the forehead provide a straight shot into the internal visor. I generally always ride with all vents open all the time and this will put perfect dual oval shaped [of the air vent] smudges on the internal visor over time that you will see when you drop it down. Every other day I'll clear the humidity/grime/residue build up off the visor. Not a big deal, but something to note.
That said, my criticism of the helmet is completely forgivable and would recommend the EXO 1100 to anyone thinking about picking one up. I also have to confess now that I've had the helmet for a couple weeks the noise from the air turbulence going over the foil has actually kinda grown on me in a little kid kind of way. Entertaining to get a little aggressive and open it up on a quiet freeway and hear what sounds pretty much exactly like the booster rocket on a shuttle launch.

Great helmet without breaking the bank
Searching for a good beginner helmet without spending over $350, the EXO-1100 is perfect. It's a little heavier and more noisy than the high end Shoei and Arai helmets but also half the price.
I have an oddly shaped oval head and big on top but skinnier face/cheeks so finding a helmet that fit that was tough but thanks to the EXO-1100 inflatable cheek pads that wasn't a problem at all.
I use the U-Clear HBC200 blue tooth unit and i can hear calls perfectly below 45 mph. Above that gets a little hard to hear.
The drop down visor has come in handy on sunny days but sadly losing SNELL approval (hence the one star drop).
I haven't had any fog issues either so that's great in this seattle weather!

The helmet works fine with good working features. I have a little problem with the shape. My head is more oval and the helmet feels a little short to a point that my forehead gets sore from the pressure after riding awhile.B
