Scorpion EXO-1100/500 Face Shield
Great helmet for the money
This is a replacement for my Exo700. It was destroyed in a crash early spring. I never wore it much because I like my half helmet but that day something told me to just grab the full face. After seeing what it protected my face from, you can bet that a full face is all I ever wear. The fit was way tighter than my 700. I wore a large 700 but the 500 was so painfully tight that I had to get an xl. It was almost impossible to even get a large 500 on and it squeezed my head so badly that I had a headache within 5 minutes. I packed it up and sent it back for an xl. Best helmet I've ever had. The dark smoke shield went right on and is dark enough in full sun but may need some shades if you're staring into bright sun glare.

Great vision even @ night
Great product. Didn't think it would b so clear as it is @ night, but it is. Even when there r no street lights! Thank you guys

It is clear, and fits. Inner "fog resistance" is a joke, and scratches too easily, but these were known issues when I bought the helmet, so not unexpected.

I ordered the silver mirror and once installed it looked great. I put it on for a ride in the sun and though I liked the additional sun protection, it reflected my cheeks and nose back to me on the inside of the shield. I thought I might get used to it, but didn't. This was extremely distracting visually, especially when going through a mix of shadows and sun because you'd get flashes of your face in your line of sight. I didn't read any other reviews about this aspect of the mirrored visors, so was surprised by this.
I returned this immediately for a non-mirrored smoke version. It's probably fine for commuting and cruising around but straight up unsafe for focused riding.
I give it two stars because the non-mirrored visors are fine.

The exo 500 shields tend to scratch easy with normal so be careful.
By normal I mean running water and my finger.

Dark smoke really helps!
Fits just like the stock visor, the venting switch worked just fine. The dark smoke version doesn't look dark in the picture or off of the helmet but on the bike it really made a difference.
I didn't notice any distortion or mirroring when on the bike.

Great face shield!
It is easily attached and removed, and the tint is awesome...it's very clear to look through and blocks plenty of sunlight...it also looks great on the helmet!

OEM replacement - it is what it is
This is Scorpion's factory replacement visor, at the same price as everywhere else. If you need a new visor, you need a new visor; your only choice is where to buy it.
Their "anti-fog technology" seems pretty much worthless - if it's cold and/or humid, it's going to fog. At least this helmet/visor design lets you crack the visor a bit to clear fogging while in motion.
