Scorpion EXO-400 Showtime Helmet
This helmet is great, a lot quieter than the Bilt helmet I had before, and it fits a lot better too. Cheapest Snell approved helmet I found, definitely worth it.

I bought a cheap HCI full face helmet when I started riding size L, and a Scorpion EXO-100 half helmet size XL
So I figured with the comments to size up that an XL should do the trick with my 23.22inch/59cm head. According to the Scorpion size chart I would be a large. The XL was so tight it was claustrophobic, I had imprints of pads on my face. I figure the size chart is 2inches/5cm small. I've returned and replaced for a 2XL. The top of the head pad is a perfect fit, the cheek pads are tight but I'm confident it will break in for a perfect fit (or I may shave them a layer at the back of the jaw). I didn't want to do another return a 3xl might break in too loose, always bad in a helmet, but return was easy and not too $$$.
P.S. - USPS Shipping to Canada was fast and perfect, arrived within the week, no brokerage fees. Well done Revzilla

I was looking to replace my Scorpion EXO-1000. After getting my new bike (05 Suzuki Katana 600) the EXO-1000 was causing me neck fatigue after about 20 minutes of riding. That helmet is for a more upright riding position. I liked the fit of the Scorpion helmets that I had tried on and decided to purchase this one. Here is my take on the Scorpion EXO-400 Showtime helmet.
• Fit – I have a round oval head shape and this helmet was comfortable out of the box. No break in required unlike my other helmets (Scorpion EXO-1000 and EXO-500). Like my other Scorpion helmets they run a little small so get a size up from your regular. All other helmets I have tried on I am a medium. In the Scorpion I have been a large. Everything is nice and snug. The interior is softer in this one. It gives you a comfortable but secured fit.
• Noise – Compared to my other helmets this one is a little less noisy at speeds above 60 MPH. The cheek pads fit nice and along with the chin curtain (purchased separately) reduces wind noise. Air flow is pretty good. Not as much as my other helmets but it does the job.
• Appearance – The graphics speaks for itself. I get compliments every time I put this helmet on. My wife calls it the “Scary clown” helmet but she loves it. I purchased the blue face shield and it really makes the helmet stand out.
• Construction – Overall I like the construction of the helmet except for the face shield. Compared to my EXO-1000 and EXO-500 the shield and speed shift system is kind of cheesy. I guess they had to cut corners to reduce the price and this is where they did it. The shield material is a little thinner and the speed shift system isn’t as smooth.
Overall this helmet is a nice bang for the buck. For everything that you get with this helmet it’s not a bad deal. I would have no hesitation and purchasing another one. Fast order processing and shipping from Revzilla and they have a return customer for sure. I hope this review helps anyone looking to purchase this helmet. Safe and happy riding!

Great Buy, runs small in sizing
As noted in several reviews this runs small, you need to order one size up from your normal size.
The visibility is good in this helmet and the weight is average. Venting is sufficient and the no fog visor works well.
The downside is that this helmet is a bit noisy at speed. I have not tried a wind blocker to see if this helps. The upside is that the graphics are really cool and well done.

I waited for over 2 month for this helmet and i must say i am glad i did .
Excellant graphics, good fit, noise level not too bad .
I have always bought Shoei in the past but the quality of a Scorpian cant be beat .
My helmet of choice from now on .

WOW, great helmet
This is my third item from Revzilla in the last three months and it has been a pleasure dealing with them. I really like my Scorpion helmet the fit is great and the graphics jump out at you almost 3D looking. The speedshift quick change shield is the best and way to easy to use. The EXO-400 has a great ventilation no problems with fogging up at all. This helmet gives features found in helmets costing two to three times more. It has high safety features as well for the price. Scorpion make a great helmet. Try one!
