Scorpion EXO-1100 Sixty Six Helmet
Really Good Helmet
I have a Shoei X-11 I use for track and street and this helmet was to replace it for street use. I am surprised by how well it works for the price. I love the inner shield since I don't have to wear sunglasses anymore. Overall great purchase. I may replace the Shoei with another one of these eventually.

Great helmet for the price...
I have been riding since May. I have worn my friend's Arai and HJC helmets before purchasing this one. The fit was perfect. I haven't used the pump up cheek pads but if the helmet was a little big it still would be a perfect fit. The drop down sun visor is a great feature that really sold the helmet for me. Wind noise is not bad at all. The helmet is not heavy( longest ride so far has been an hour) I researched over 2 weeks and am very glad I purchased this helmet.

some good, some bad
This helmet offers a lot of features for the money, but in the end I will need to purchase another helmet because it is designed poorly where it counts the most. First the good: very lightweight for how big it is and all the extra features. My neck does not hurt after wearing it awhile. Beautiful graphics and looks great. Materials used in the padding feel luxurious and the helmet is very comfortable. Now the bad: the field of vision is terrible :/ from top to bottom is very narrow and unless your head is straight and you are looking straight ahead, you can't see! When riding in a race position the helmet cuts off your line of sight through the corner and also when riding on the highway tucked in, you can't see in front of you. My other complaint is that it is very noisy. Lots of wind buffeting which I did not expect since it fits so tight. Also because of the tight fit my head and face get really sweaty. I have to go back to using my old helmet on the track so I can see through the corners.

Great helmet for a good price.
This helmet is the best bang for your buck I found. It has a lot of extra features. I love the flip down visor, comfort and airflow. My only complaints would be it's noise level and anti fog capabilities. The helmet is loud at high speeds and the visor still fogged in cold temperatures.

My noggin is 24 inches. I ordered an XL and it was very tight to start, and I was a bit uptight about it. But after a couple weeks it broke in nicely and now is very comfortable. Noticeably lightweight. Seems to breathe fairly well though we did not have a scorcher summer this year to really test it heat-wise. Sun visor is fairly useful, but it is not that dark -- I doubt it would do the trick going into a low sun for any length of time. The facemask feature when it is locked a half-inch open is handy in order to get air. We will see how it works in the winter but so far I am very happy with the helmet.

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!

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.
