Scorpion EXO-500 Ardent Helmet

The Scorpion EXO-500 immediately catches the eye with its innovative design, enhanced by a superb sharp ridge on the underside of the shell. Inspired by its older brother, the Scorpion EXO-1000, the EXO 500 Helmet is based on GT philosophy and is fitted as standard with the latest generation face shield. The EXO-500 also integrates the SpeedView built-in retractable sunvisor treated with anti-fog coating on both sides.

Comprising 3 shell sizes and a lighter, more durable shell than its predecessor, the Scorpion EXO-500 Helmets will drastically change your expectations of a standard full face helmet. Featuring a very soft KwikWick 2 inner liner and triple density foam cheek pads, the EXO500 is also equipped with the revolutionary Airfit technology and a state-of-the-art ventilation system. Chances are, this Scorpion will steal the show from much more expensive helmets.


  • KwikWick 2 liner: soft, moisture wicking, hypoallergenic, removable, and machine washable
  • SpeedView retractable sunvisor: treated with antifog on both sides
  • AirFit technology: inflate and deflate the cheek pads to make it fit perfectly for a better fit, greater safety and shock absorption
  • SpeedShift visor system: enables extremely quick visor changes
  • EverClear no-fog visor: optically-correct, aero-tuned shield with state-of-the art fog-free technology and anti-scratch hardened coating
  • Advanced polycarbonate composite engineered shell: quiet, aero-tuned designed and wind-tunnel tested
  • EPS-lined chin bar for additional protection
  • Triple density foam cheek pads
  • 3 shell sizes
  • 3 year warranty

Scorpion EXO-500 Ardent Helmet 4.6 5 210 210
It did its job.... I'm not dead I had been riding for a about a year, had my permit, insurance the whole package. I was never too reckless. Only used my bike for my 7 mile community to the university. Unfortunately while on my way to class one morning i was in an accident. I woke up 3 days later in the hospital with a breathing tube in my mouth unable to move. I had broken both my legs, both my ankles, fractured my hip, dislocated my shoulder, broke my wrist, displaced my kidney, tore my bladder, and fractured my spine. Later realizing that I had been thrown over 100ft off my bike, and nearly bled to death. I was not distraught with my situation, only grateful that my spine was not severed. My head was was not critically injured but my neck was incredibly stiff and I did have a 2 inch cut going across my forehead, most likely from the initially smack to the ground. I was a track running, 300lbs benching 500lbs squating animal, all that muscle on me LITERALLY kept me alive, but this is just my story. There is no right or wrong. Only Experience. Decide for yourself what you think you need to do. Its a Great helmet, I loved it very much. Great quality, fit so well, was very comfortable. January 17, 2015
I love the fitment of this helmet. The inside drop down sun visor is the best feature of this helmet. The operation of both visors is easy to use and i like how the air flows through the helmet. January 29, 2015
Incredibly tight cheek pads So let's get the negative out of the way first: I ordered according to my size on the chart and found it to be too small. So I ordered the next size up And was rewarded with a helmet that fit my head. But with cheek pads that put so much pressure on my neck, I felt like I was being choked out. I can't understand the reasoning behind nearly doubling the thickness of the cheek pads (29 mm in the L to 42 mm in the XL). I am not exaggerating when I say the width of the helmet was more than an inch narrower on the XL than the L. Apparently Scorpion thinks people with bigger heads have significantly smaller necks? The styling is good; the internal sun visor is OUTSTANDING; and the lock open for the main visor is pretty useful. While I recommend this helmet, I would be very aware that you will have to buy different cheek pads, at least for the XL. January 9, 2015
Nice helmet This is my first full face helmet. A bit on the snug side for my round nugget but with smaller cheek pads it's just right. Face shield got some scratches after 3 months of use but not noticeable while riding . December 29, 2014
Love the helmet!! I wanted an EXO since trying on a 500-series about 6 months ago in a BMW showroom. Love the internal visor (I have sensitive blue eyes) and the dedicated de-fog position for the visor. Very comfortable to try on, but I haven't spent any extended time in it yet. It seems a bit tight right now, but I'm hoping it'll loosen up a little once "broken-in". If not, it's still acceptable. The graphics that I preffered, the WEST, are apparently not very popular, because I got mine for about $50 cheaper than other graphics; mine was on close out for $159 delivered. Fit and finish is as nice as ANY helmet I've owned or looked at. Graphics are under a nice gloss coat, they look good! Visor swapping (I bought the mirrored one for it) was harder than they make it sound, but it was probably just me doing it wrong. If you want an extra visor, they are more than $50, so that's an issue considering some companies offer theirs for less than $15! (At $50 each, I won't have a collection, that's for sure) Quality of the visor mechanism seems really solid, with positive detents and a good feel. Interior is, again, of very high quality. Cheek pads are really nice and snap out easily. I probably won't use the AIR BLADDER system, due to the snugness of the helmet right now, but maybe after some time (and miles) pass. I would definitely recommend this helmet, especially at the price I got it for! Just consider the extra shield price if you don't want clear (included). December 22, 2014
The EXO-500 is a nice looking helmet I get complements on it usually any where I stop an get off my bike. I like the EXO -500, the looks an style of it the only drawback is that it's noisy. I noticed once I get above 70-80 kms the wind starts to howl. I don't have any other complaints as of yet for this helmet.i also like the fact that I can get different colour face shields unlike other companies which only offer a couple usually clear or tinted.

EXO-500 West - First Helmet - Seems great for the money At first the cheek pads were really uncomfortable. I called revzilla to ask if I should order smaller cheek pads and they said that the pads in scorpion helmets are extremely tight at first. To the point where you are biting the insides of your cheeks. They said to take the pads out and wear the helmet without them to make sure the shell size was comfortable and if it was to put the cheek pads under a pile of books for a night or two. This worked out great, next time I put on the helmet with the pads it was a lot more manageable but still quite snug. Everyday I ride though it seems to be a little better. The helmet seems fairly heavy to me but as a new rider I think I just don't have the neck muscles yet. The sun visor is awesome, some people said theirs came with the light smoke visor but I believe mine came with dark smoke. The visor lock thing is hard to manage with gloves on while on the bike but being able to crack it open adds a lot of extra air(and noise) without taking away the eye protection. November 17, 2014
Nice helmet for a nice price I bought this helmet just a couple of weeks ago to replace an older Bell Vortex that I have been riding in for several years. I feel like this helmet has a slightly better build quality than the Bell, but has a slightly more narrow field of vision, and is also slightly louder. This helmet fit me very tight in the cheeks initially, but after swapping the cheek pads out to the "Large" it fits perfect! RevZilla was great to work with on getting the cheek pads to me quick and without shipping charge. The whole inside of the helmet seems well made and of a quality material. Another small negative is the small opening that you must cram your head through when putting the helmet on. Not a big deal but an hindrance. The sunvisor is a cool feature, but I feel like it is a little bit of a gimmick. I am not really sold on its functionality yet, but at least it looks cool. Seems to cause some glare... I was hoping for there to be less wind noise when on my naked bike (Triumph Speed Triple) but its pretty loud. So I guess I will keep wearing my ear plugs. The paint on this helmet looks great! the trim fits well and seems like it is going to stay in place. Overall I think this helmet was a good buy. I gave it 4 stars because 5 would be darn near perfect in every way, which I dont think I have ever experienced that in any safety gear. I will update this in a few months to let everyone know how well it holds up. November 10, 2014

Nguyen-Steven D: Great price with awesome features. Solid helmet with internal sunvisor. Fits my neutral head (not round or oval). Jun 27, 2014
Hammad A: After doing research for 2 weeks, I decided to go with the Scorpion EXO-500 because it's loaded with extra features that are expected of a more expensive helmet. All the reviews emphasized its solid construction, comfort, and overall quality.

I am also REALLY IMPRESSED with RevZilla's customer service. Even though I contacted them outside of their customer service hours, they still got back to me immediately and were very helpful! RevZilla will definitely continue to be my go-to bike store!

Shawana G asked: I usually wear a size small. Some buyers have stated that the fit is tight. Does that warrant going up to a size medium? Aug 1, 2014

Nestor V: I probably would. I will tell you that it will also depend on your head shape. I ran I to the issue of the opening being too narrow for my face. Once it was on it felt great. Hope this helps Aug 1, 2014

Teven C: I personally would go up to a medium bc it is kinda tight and if the medium seems a little big after break in use the air pump system to tighten the fit so it's perfect. Aug 1, 2014
Reply to Teven Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Joe H: It is a tight fit, When the small came to me, It was difficult to put on the first few times, I was used to a Medium But the main thing to remember is after wearing it several times, you loose about 10 to 15 percent of the tightness, Meaning the padding gives more room the more you wear it, It's been a couple weeks now and the helmet fits just fine now. So if your already used to a small then I would try a small. The medium will fit fine at first but be too loose after a few weeks of wearing it. Aug 2, 2014
Reply to Joe Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Myron G: My EXO500 fits really tightly. I bought a Medium, as I wear a 7 1/4 hat. I wish I had bought the large, even though I tried it on. The Medium never broke in the way I thought it would. If I were you, I'd try tghe next size up.

Just my opinion. Hope this helps.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
downrangeFuture: Yes it is snell rated. The 2008 standard I believe. If a track will take the ECE rating would depend on the track. Snell is a racing standard, ECE isn't even though they're fairly comparable. Jul 16, 2011
Reply to downrangeFuture Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)

A shopper asked: Can a smh5 bluetooth headset work with this helmet? Mar 17, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The Sena SMH5 Bluetooth Headset should work just fine with the Scorpion EXO-500 Helmet. The bluetooth can be mounted by either the included clamp mount, which will go on the lower left chin bar, between the helmet liner and shell, or the sticky surface mount. Mar 18, 2013
