Scorpion EXO-500 Crude Helmet (Size XL Only)
This helmet is super light weight and well padded. I highly recommend this product

A great helmet at a great price!
I purchased the Scorpion EXO-500 Corsica helmet because one of the helmets I already have is an Exo-500 Heritage helmet. I like the fit, feel, and look of both helmets. For me the inflatable cheek pads are not a necessity as the 2x fits me perfectly, possibly as the helmet ages I may use the inflatables.
I like a helmet which will be visible to the drivers / riders around me - hopefully adding an extra level of safety. Both of my helmets are a red, black, and yellow color scheme.
The shield system works great being very easy to remove for switching and cleaning. I bought the second EXO-500 so I would have the interchangeability option. The easy flip down sun visor is an excellent option when needed!
I use the Sena 20s communications system and it mounts quite easily.
Being that I live in Michigan my riding is suspended until tolerable weather I cannot say that I have actually done any riding with the new EXO-500 - I presume that, as the fit is virtually the same as my other helmet that I will be happy with it.
Overall - this helmet is a great value, the price is very reasonable, the overall quality is very good including the graphics, liner, and seals. Revzilla sent this helmet out to me promptly and arrived with no damage.

Great helmet, and saved my head!
Has a lot of features for what you pay. I really liked the blow up cheek pads, and the drop down sun visor was very useful.
My air vents and drop down visor lever all broke after a few months of use.
I low sided wearing this, still got a concussion and had a sore neck for a month, but I'm still riding so I guess it worked.

Its a little tight when first putting it on,verses others Ive had. But once its on its fine. And maybe its where its brand new and the liner has to stretch some. Im very happy with it and will order Scorpion products in the future!

This is my second EXO-500 that I've purchased from Revzilla. My first one worked really well after a pretty bad crash and so I went back and got the same one again. Once I need a new helmet I will keep coming back to this one. Also, it definitely fits small, order a size up.

Great first helmet
This is my first helmet. After about 1K miles it's great. My only complaint is the red snap that tames the excess strap came apart. I've just lived with it because I don't want to deal with the hassle of a return.
The graphics are great looking and clean. The visor is easy to remove and install once you do it a couple times. The internal sunshield is great especially on the really bright days, in tandem with a dark smoke visor. Loudness isn't too bad but I wear earplugs and it's my first helmet so I don't have anything to compare it to.

Great features, 3-4 year use.
Of my 5 helmets in the $200 price range, the EXO 500 is my favorite. On a Ninja or on a DL650, the top air vents create some noise. Not horrible, but noticeable. When closed, I can ride 4+ hours without ear plugs with no problem.
Scorpion makes an affordable replacement kit for the inside padding, which I've replaced on one of mine after 3 years use. I also had the problem mentioned by another reviewer regarding the top fitment above the eyes coming loose. I haven't tried regluing it yet but will need to soon.
Also, the chin strap covering (the jacket through which the strap passes) is made from plastic, not leather. After 2-1/2 years of daily commuting it started cracking apart, which is sort of brittle and cut in to the side of my face near my ear. Slightly uncomfortable, so I cut it away from the strap. Easy to fix but still an annoyance.
Those are my negs. Still, my favorite economy helmet, especially when you can find them below $150.

Great looking, comfortable helmet
This is my first helmet so I don't have much to compare to but I'm extremely happy with this helmet. The design is sick, really looks badass. I bought the neon yellow one and it is highly visual at night. I've had my wife driving behind me and she said its very easy to spot. It makes me feel good knowing I'll be easy seen at night. There's pretty good amount of air flow. I haven't tried it out in 90+ temps but around 70-80 my head felt pretty cool, and it wasn't too sweaty. It was a little noisy at first but I got use to it quick and don't even notice it now. Great overall helmet, no complaints from me
