Scorpion EXO-1100 Jag Helmet
Was looking for a new helmet but didn't want to spend top dollar. This helmets upgraded material and cool graphics at this price point made it an easy decision. And with the addition of the drop down sun visor makes it that much better of a pick up. Sizing is good with a little break in, another cool little feature if you have a narrow face there is a pump in the chin to give you that snug fit around the check pads.

Too many issues to ignore
First off I will say that I bought the blue mirror visor to go with a different color scheme of this helmet. Right off the back it looks sick. The style of the helmet is amazing. It seems to be very durable and have great protection. My issue is when it comes to the air fit system and the visor locking mechanism. I guess I recieved a deffective helmet because the air fit system never worked. I have since then handled other helmets of the same model and they work, but mine came in deffective. Second of all the locking mechanism is somehow messed up on mine. There should be position to lock it down, open, and slightly cracked open. This does not work correctly on my helmet. I dont normally use the visor lock on helmets and the air fit system was a bonus not really anything I needed, so I decided to keep the helmet. It has worked fantastically for me, but sadly I can not give it 5 or even 4 stars when such it came with not one but two defective parts. Even though I probably could have sent it back the hasstle and all would not have been worth it. For me from a well known company like Scorpion and a (somewhat) expensive helmet I was let down.

Good fit, good value.
I ordered the high viz model after looking at similar models in the local brick and mortar. I like the color pattern of the high viz and I wanted the extra visibility. I like all of the vents and the flip down sun shade is handy when turning into the sun and not wearing sun glasses. It fits me great after it broke in a bit. It was a bit tight on day 1. I haven't really used the pump up cheeks feature since it really fits good already but it seems like a good idea. Very happy with this helmet especially for the price.

Great value, awesome looks
I love the looks of this helmet, and I had tried on my friends for size beforehand, so I knew what to expect. I was stuck between this one and the HJC IS-17, because I actually think the HJC fits better, but it feels more unwieldy and large. The ventilation is alright, but where it shines is how much wind doesn't slap you around the face. I wear glasses and contacts, and with my previous helmet I couldn't wear the contacts because I would get too much wind in my eyes, drying them out almost immediately. With the EXO-1100, you can control how much airflow on the face easily. (I like the switch that allows you to lock the shield in a cracked position, it works very well for me). I do wear my glasses usually with the helmet, and it works fine, but it might not work for all types. The HJC had better eyeglass cutouts, but I don't really have any issues with the scorpion. The drop down screen could be darker (it was darker on my last one), but it still does the job nicely. The adjustments to airflow using the vents doesn't seem to do a whole lot, but I can feel it flowing a bit. We shall see how it handles summer, though. Best helmet I've owned, and I love it.

EXO-1100 Excellent Upgrade at a Great Price
I have been riding with an EXO-400 for years and recently purchased a 2014 Suzuki V Strom DL1000 ABS. The windscreen on the DL1000 was causing a lot of buffet and noise when riding with my EXO-400.
The EXO-1100 is an excellent upgrade and offers great comfort, styling, fit, weight, and most importantly reduced noise and buffet. The improvement was amazing and immediately noticed.
I would recommend this helmet to anyone looking for a great package without having to spend $500 plus dollars.
Thanks Revzilla for the great helmet reviews that made this choice easy and worry free.

Great features for a great price
This is my second Scorpion helmet, my first being my moto helmet. The price, features and light weight made buying one for my motorcycle a no-brainer. The main feature that attracted me to this helmet was the easy to use flip down sun shade. I wear Rx glasses and it is not easy to quickly switch to and from sunglasses, so this is a major selling point to me. Beyond that, the Air-Pump is great for a nice snug fit. Air flow is great and visibility is great as well.
The switch on the shield took a couple rides to get used to. It has three positions: Shield locked, Shield unlocked, and Shield cracked open. Once I got the hang of using it, i really like being able to crack the shield 1/2" or so and have it stay there. The shield can also be opened fully from the cracked position.
