Scorpion EXO-1100 Preciosa Helmet
Bought two returned them both but I still heart Scorpion Helmets!
am on my 3rd Scorpion which is a EX700 that's showing some signs of wear but I really love the helmet. May just end up buying some fresh cheek pads and liner but I also know their technology has increased in recent years. For some strange reason my head measured an XL on the sizing chart for scorpion but I have been wearing an XXL with the 700. Now the 700 is broken in after three years with it and it's slightly loose and I realized anything I put on would be tight. The XXL seemed like a tad two tight..Though I think I could have lived with it I am going to be near philly soon so will stop in to Revzilla and just try on some xxxls just for comparision...most likely in the 500 series. However I did wear this for 10 minutes a day for 4 days..just around the house and watching tv and the build quality is great, the shield is super, and the lining is as plush and comfortable you'd get in a $600 helmet. I make good money..not a millionaire but do OK but even if I was a millionaire I'd hever spend more than $400 on a helmet. There's no need in my book and of course to those that don't mind more buying 6,7, 800 helmets more power to you!
I think Scorpion is totally on the rebound and make great products at very reasonable prices.

This helmet is everything I wanted!
This scorpion EXO-1100 was everything I wanted in a mid range helmet and at a decent price! It has great graphics, and tons of features. The flip down sun shade was a little lighter than i expected, but it does what it needs to to get by. The helmet is comfortable, airy, and has little to no wobble at interstate speeds!

Excellent bug smasher
Very stable helmet when facing forward, catches a bit of wind from the side though. A little loud with the top vents open but the airflow is excellent. Even with the top vents closed the other vents provide plenty of ventilation. The sun visor is very functional even with glasses.
The shape is almost as round as my very old Bell. For me the size ran a bit on the small side as I am 1 size larger than the fit chart says I wear. The indicated size was very tight in the temple area.

Overall Workable Helmet
Little bit on the smaller side for an XL helmet but fit me snug minus any pumping. Easy to stay cool while riding but any extended stopping and your head will roast. Not familiar with many helmets so that might be more normal than I would think. Worth the money though.

Perfect for petite riders
This Helmet has been my saving grace. I am a petite rider and have found finding a helmet that fits right and is not pink quite a problem. This helmet is the right shell size and the inflatable function allows me to tailor the fit so now i don't have to wear my hair up to make it snug fitting. I love the visor settings so it can be open a crack when riding the streets, and closed or locked when on long rides. The only thing annoying things are that the wind noise is a bit loud even with vents closed, and when i take the helmet off i have a red mark on my forehead; but overall I definitely recommend this helmet, especially to other female riders.

This product has great features
This product has great features, sun shade and locking air vent crack up on shield. Good air flow. nice cheek pump up pillow fit. Not very heavy, with composite shell protection.
The only thing I did not like was the sweat band on forehead stitching put a heavy red pressure line across my forehead until I removed the liner and hand sanded a slight channel indentation in the foam to allow the stitching seam to flow into it . Now the forehead is line free and comfortable all day.
Very nice helmet for the money.

Love this helmet!
This is a great helmet! This is my first helmet over $100, and I am very satisfied with my purchase. The liner is VERY comfortable, and it fits well. Heads up, (pun totally intended) these guys run a little small. I'm normally between an L and an XL, so getting an XL fit perfectly for me. I've heard from others also, that the other scorpion helmets run small too.
Ships with a clear visor, but the dropdown feature is nice. I'm lazy and don't like changing visors, so it works out for day and nighttime riding. Although if you wanted to change the visor, its not too difficult. I do wish that the interior visor was a little darker. I live in so cal, and it gets really bright here in the summer. But the feature is great. Really helps get the glare out. When I first got this helmet, I definitely didn't walk around my house dropping the internal visor declaring "I AM THE LAW" to my mom and brother... ok I did. High five if you get the reference!

Lots of helmet for the money.
Needed a helmet for winter riding to replace a 14 year old Shoei. I had never heard of the Scorpion line before now and was hesitant, needlessly so, and decided to give them a try. Glad I did.
The helmet is a xxl and is just the slightest bit snug but less so after wearing it for a couple of weeks. Lot's of nice features and my favorite is the sun visor built into the helmet. It works on the sunniest of days.
I've also received a good many compliments on how sharp the helmet looks.
Over all, I feel that it's a very good value for my money spent and would recommend the brand to others.
