Scorpion EXO-1100 Sixty Six Helmet
This is the best helmet I have owned. The price is worth the buy. It cost more than the cheap helmets but the quality is comparable to the more expensive helmets. The helmet is on the light side (not carbon fiber light). It had a great field of vision. Air flow is average.

Love this helmet
This is a great helmet. The fit is excellent. I wear
a size 7 hat, I bought a medium and it fits well. Love the built in sun visor. All in all a great helmet.

Best helmet I've had
This helmet is very comfortable, lightweight. Alot quieter than I expected. I normally wear a large but ordered a medium based on other reviews. Fits perfect.

A good solid value...
I replace a Arai Quantum 2 with this helmet mostly because the Arai was a tad too big and I like my helmets TIGHT. I've always had Arais (currently have an open face CT-Z, as well as some VX-PROs) but wasn't thrilled with the idea of spending so much for yet another, especially when I don't put many miles on my road bikes. So, I opened my mind to looking around.
After a some research, I'm confident that the EXO-1100 offers a similar range of safety as my current helmets, otherwise I wouldn't have considered it. The helmet also gets great reviews and I though I would give it a shot. It's impressive for the price, no doubt. The big pluses for me were a good snug fit (I'm 56cm and ordered a Small) with an internal shape that's very similar to my head, decent ventilation, and pretty quiet. I usually wear sunglasses on a sunny day but I think I'll enjoy the flexibility of the drop down sun screen even more.
I'm happy and will be using this helmet as my primary full face road helmet. Honestly, as nice as the EXO-1100 is, you won't be fooled that you're handling a super premium helmet that costs twice as much. I really think that the design is on par with a Shoei or Arai (maybe not Schuberth), but the materials are holding it back a little. The neck roll is impressive with a good seal, it's just that the material doesn't feel as nice as the other two brands. Same with vent latches, screen levers, and the hardware in general. This really could be a $600-$700 helmet with a little more attention to detail and higher quality materials.

LIGHT WEIGHT, HARD OUTER SHELL, COMFORT INTERNAL AND VERY QUIET

Overall its a good value in this price range. No slot for sliding glasses in; just takes extra wiggling. Sort of a pain. Called and the Revzilla expert guided us toward this helmet for to use with speakers. It has a recessed area but my spear (Harley) must be large because they don't fit right. But, overall, it's a great helmet for the money. The fit, feel, and finish is spot on and the neon yellow is super high visibility. The internal, flip-up, sun visor is easy to operate 1 handed and the outer shield is super easy to swap.

Great bang for your buck
I love this helmet. First of all the helmet looks GREAT!! One of the best looking scorpions made. Air flow is great with 4 inlet and 1 exit vents. The inner and outer shield are durable and feel solid, the locking mechanism is great and is easy with a glove. Wind noise is lower than expected coming from an arai helmet. It is light weight and durable, and Lense never fogs up. Keeps your head dry even in pouring rain. I'd definitely recommend this product.

Rainy trip to Ireland
In fair weather conditions, even mediocre gear will get you by. I just took a week long trip renting bikes and riding in Ireland. It poured for 6 days straight.
This helmet blew me away. I'd contacted Revzilla for some recommendations on a sub $250 full face with an IS. This was top of the heap and I'm glad I took the advice. Although it was pouring, fogging and moisture inside the helmet were non issues. With the single detent on the visor, there's about a 1/2 inch gap. With that open, I rode without issue every day. Had the helmet not performed, I may not have ridden every day and been stuck in the pubs (wait, lemme think on that a second...).
Besides the above, the helmet has the pump feature for custoM fit. I found in a size large I did not need to pump it at all. The helmet fit snug across the forehead when I first got it and I was worried it would be an irritant, but by the time the trip was done it fit perfectly. Just need dome break in.
The sunshield mechanism is great. I like it much better than my old HJC FS10. Much more fluid and the shield actually covers where it should. Could be a bit darker, but hey its not sunglasses.
All around great helmet. Also one of the lightest full face in that range.
