Scorpion EXO-1100 Jag Helmet
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.

Great helmet for the price
I researched helmets for about 6 months before making this purchase. I made the right choice. I'm still working on breaking in the helmet, but the fit is secure and comfortable. I love the features, from the vents to the drop down visor. Although I do agree with other reviewers that the visor could be a little longer. I got the HI-VIZ helmet and feel that it will help to be seen.

This is my second helmet but it is very nice. I have a riding buddy that has the 1000 and says this feels lighter. The flip down shade is a nice perk and the ability to customize the fit on the fly is outstanding.

This helmet gives me all the features and doesn't hurt the pockets
If your looking for the aerodynamic look and feel then this is the helmet for you! Everytime I look at this helmet it puts a smile on my face just because it looks so good and looks like I paid a ton of money for but I really didn't. This helmet has all the features you will ever need in a helmet plus it's got excellent air flow!

Good helmet, minor issues
I've had this helmet for a while now and am satisfied with the purchase. FYI, using with a SENA SMH10 (fixed boom) Minor mod to get this to fit right.
Likes: Nice comfortable fit for me. Don't need to use the pump since the fit is good as is. Had a drop down visor in a previous helmet and really like these. Reasonable venting though not as much as a previous Suomy. Nice bright visibility on the "Hi Viz" paint scheme. Easy face shield removal and replacement. Quieter than my modular, duh.
Quibbles: Would like to have a newer easy chin fastener system. Personal preference would be to have the drop down visor a little darker.
Issue: The helmet has a small lever on the side to "crack" the visor for defogging and such. I find the lever a little hard to use with my winter gloves. This lever is supposed to reset when you open the visor and close it again but mine tends to not work that way leaving a gap on the left side of the visor where the plastic lever is out of position. I then move the lever out of the way and it's fine.
Overall I'm happy with the build, weight, and noise at this price point.

- Plenty of ventilation.
- Flip-down visor, easily manipulable.
- Wide vision.
- Plenty of ventilation. A bit much for colder weather.
- Top vents and visor latch are difficult to manipulate with gloves.
- AirFit felt gimmicky and I didn't feel much of a difference fully inflated.
- High wind noise.
- A bit "boxy" looking - just not my style.
