Scorpion EXO-1100 Jag Helmet
Great helmet with great features
Overall a great helmet with good airflow and visibility. I like the custom fit you get with the adjustable cheek air bags. Lots of features for a great price.

Airflow is only negative
I was very disappointed with the venting. The only vent that can really be felt is the one below the visor to keep it unfogged. The ones above the and on top, I can't tell any difference at all. I tried wetting the liner like someone suggested, no effect open or closed. The idea is the air should flow over the water and cool it. The helmet is very quiet and very comfortable.

Great reviews but in the end a little disappointing
I bought this based on the overall high reviews with the expectation that it might be a real steal. I was hoping for a quiet helmet with a sun visor for not too much money.
While it was a very good bang for the buck I can defiantly feel the quality sacrifice.
If you are looking for an inexpensive composite helmet with a visor it is a good deal on special. If you want it to be more than what it is keep looking.

OK but not great
Bought this helmet to replace a 10 year old Shoei. The Scorpion seemed like it had alot of features that would be useful.
Couple of things:
1.) The internal sun shade that can be flipped down and back up is not really that functional as it only comes down enough to impede your line of sight. Seems like it should come down at LEAST another 2 inches, if more. So I'm back to using sun glasses in my helmet.
2.) You CANNOT mount a helmet communication device in this helmet because of the air bag system. (Wish I would have known this before purchasing).
3.) The fit is very small. I usually wear an XL in helmets, but I saw this helmet fit small so I ordered an XXL. It is VERY tight. I thought it would break in but no luck after 3,000 miles of seat time.
4.) Very poor quality components. Literally, yesterday, I was riding home from work and went to crack my visor open at a stop light to allow some air and the lock/vent mechanism snapped right off in my hand. Very disappointed in this.
5.) The helmet is not very strong feeling at all compared to my 10 year old Shoei. When you turn the helmet over on your lap and grab each side of the shell, you can easily get 4 inches of "flex" from the shell. The Shoei allows for none of this.
The one thing I felt was OK was the air flow. When exposed to clean air, the helmet does vent decently. But that's the only thing I can think of that is positive about this helmet. The noise level was slightly below average.
For the price point, I feel like I have been ripped off and am seriously considering going back to a 10 year old helmet. I don't make enough money to buy multiple helmets if one doesn't work out.

Good Overall Helmet
I've been riding with this for over six months now and think it's a good helmet. It's pretty quiet. I have a Sena intercom and listen to music, talk to my passenger, and make phone calls. The person on the other end usually can't tell I'm riding.
Air flow is decent, but despite the "fog free" visor, I still experience some fogging on cooler mornings.
The inflatable cheek pads would be nice if they held pressure. I tried to use them several times and they have never remained inflated for more than 5 mins.
Other than that, I like it, the internal sun shield is great. I replaced the stock light smoke internal shield with a dark smoke and the stock clear visor with a mirrored visor and am quite happy.
All in all, it was good deal when I bought it at $190 (Revzilla price matched another retailer) and now that the price is lower still, is a great deal.

I love the product, it's a great buy for the money!
I've had multiple helmets in the past, this one is by far one of the best that I've owned. I love the fit! The air flow is excellent. The drop down visor is an excellent feature, no more having to worry about losing or breaking expensive sunglasses!

my first helmet
I had this helmet for a month or so and since it's my first helmet I cannot really compare it to anything else. I like how it looks, fits great. Noise is acceptable at 75mph. I would definitely buy it again.
