Scorpion EXO-1100 Sixty-Six Neon Helmet
I was looking around for a new Hi-Viz w/ a flip down to replace my old HJC and decided on this helmet. Only been able to ride with it for a couple hours as of yet but so far so good. At 40 degree temp the helmet did a nice job keeping the air out with the vents and visor closed. Only noticeable draft came up thru the chin but I can work with that. Can't wait to take it for a rip in warmer weather to try out the venting. Flip down visor is sick. Just a quick flip and you have shades without having to switch visors or cram glasses in your helmet. I measure 60 cm (which is rated a large on their guide) but after reading some reviews I went with the XL which fits well and I used the air to snug it up a bit. Also just a FYI the picture looks like the helmet is yellow but it is actually greenish yellow. Was kind of bummed out about that when I took it out of the box because my bike is black/yellow. However its still a very functional & sharp looking helmet so color is secondary to saftey for me.

great everyday commuting helmet
upgraded to this helmet from an exo 700. the small in this helmet feels a bit tighter than the 700, but it may be that i just got used to the packed out pads. noise level is definitely lower in this helmet than the 700. this helmet makes a good seal around the neckline which is what i believe helps make this a quieter helmet than the 700. the flip down tinted shield is great. i don't have to carry sunglasses or an extra shield now. winter riding it's quite drafty, but i think i can fix that with a foggy mask. most of the air flow i'm getting is coming up from under the chin bar. should be nice come summer time.

This product has great features
The 66 neon is packed with extras, is comfortable, and looks amazing to boot. I have gotten tons of compliments on the neon design and how it helps other drivers be more aware of the the bike and I. The fit is more on the round side but the air fit helps the helmet be more comfortable depending on head shape,etc. The shades are a nice way to have both clear shield but some sun protection in the same helmet. plenty of room for my Bluetooth system as well.

Great All Around Helmet
So far this is a great helmet. The Hi-Vis colorway really pops. The Hi-Vis matches perfectly with the hi-vis on my ICON hi-vis vest. I ride an average of 600-700 miles a week, and have had no issues with it being comfortable. You can ride all day and not even notice your wearing it. Ventilation seems to be great. So far I have not rode in warm\hot weather, but I have no doubt it will be fine. It is also a pretty quiet helmet. I rank it up there with my RF-1100. Sizing is spot on with other Scorpion helmets. I'm typically a medium in Scorpion, Bell and Shoei, and the medium fits like a glove. If your in the market for a Hi-Vis, touring helmet, I strongly suggest this model. As usual, great customer service and quick delivery from RevZilla.

This is my first helmet and as such I can't really comment on fitment in terms of it running big or small or the noise since I haven't ridden any other helmet. Love the sun visor, the hi viz is a LOT brighter then it appears in the video, especially when the sun is hitting it (which is a good thing).
The helmet does seem rather loud though, as I previously mentioned, I have never ridden another helmet so I don't really know. The internal visor works well.
All around good helmet, I would definitely recommend it.

I'm loving my EXO1100 sixty six
I had the Scorpion EXO 700 then the EXO1000 and for some reason I thought I should spend lots if money so I got the Shoei GT AIR. I really didn't like it... sooo much noisier than my Scorpion helmets. And then drop down sun screen was wavey!! So I sent it back and got this EXO1100! I love this helmet lighter and as quiet as my EXO1000 was and the new liner is more comfortable! I love the looks of the hi viz yellow and black sixty six graphics.
Revzilla was great as I returned my Shoei GT AIR after wearing it... yes they charged me a restocking fee but they did take it back. I don't think others would at all! I'm sold on Revzilla and Scorpion!

Took a chance, PAID OFF!
I called Revzilla help line to talk helmets. I had been looking since Christmas and had narrowed it down to 4 contenders, (Thanks Anthony for the great reviews!) After talking with the rep for about 45 minutes, I placed an order for the EXO-1100 Neon. The helmet came to my door quickly. Two days later I left for a 2400 mile vacation ride, a good test for any helmet. I rode through rain, cool weather and muggy 80's. I had never owned a Scorpion helmet before and was concerned about the quality and fit. What I received was exactly what the rep had told me: a great fitting helmet that was well made, light, with a lot of features for the money. The color was bright with clear, sharp edged graphics. The material used for the liner was very comfortable. On a 550 mile day I never noticed I had it on. For my face shape, no real inflation was needed for the cheek pads, it felt snug without pumping it up. When pumped up I could hear no difference in the noise level and you could go far enough to make it painful, so I left it alone. The face shield has great detents to hold it in partial open positions, with a nice lock and crack open lever for airflow on the side. I used this feature every time I came to a town and wanted some air on my face. The sun shield also works as promised. At 59 my eyes are getting sensitive to bright light, while the drop down shield doesn't seem very dark, it worked perfectly for me. Comfortable in bright light, good on overcast days too. It also dropped down far enough. Not touching my nose, but low enough to always look through.The only thing that I wished worked better was the air flow on top of the head. I admit, I haven't had a helmet yet that met that goal and this helmet does vent enough so I could feel some air moving through my hair at freeway speeds. I ride a Triumph Bonneville (who said they aren't touring bikes?) so I ride fairly erect with a slight forward lean. I'm 6 feet tall with average length body and a 32 inch inseam I have a Dart cafe style headlight faring on the Bonneville, and felt no buffeting except when there was a terrific side wind across South Dakota. I have owned Shark, Icon, Nolan, G-Max, Shoei and Bell over the years, this is the best helmet I have owned yet. It's not perfect, but I feel the chance paid off. I'm very pleased with my purchase

Awesome Helmet! Great Bang for the buck!
Great helmet! Great features! Great bang for the buck! Helmet fits perfectly and is comfortable to wear for long distances. Really like the easy to use drop down sun visor and ability to crack visor in a locked position. Great styling and high vis color really stands out. Quiet. Everyone thinks the helmet looks awesome. Highly recommended as long as it fits your head shape.
