Scorpion EXO-500 Helmet - Solid Videos

Scorpion EXO-500 Helmet - Solid Colors

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 Helmet - Solid 4.6 5 266 266
Is there a better value on the market? I truly am beyond satisfied with this helmet. When you consider all the features, styling, and comfort for this price, there's no better value on the market. I get compliments left and right on the helmet and I look forward to wearing it every time I ride. I'll be buying a back up just so that I can have color options. November 9, 2015
Cheap materials, not even worth $200 I purchased this helmet 3 years ago in Matte Black. I won't to too much into what's good about it but here's what's bad. After one year of use, the liner right above my eye brow came loose. The glue they used to stick it to the foam came apart, and was in hanging right above my eye, very dangerous). I sent it back to Scorpion's warranty dept. They "fixed" it and sent it back. Keep in mind my bike is my daily commuter so I was left without a bike for a week. Fine. Two years later, that "fix" came apart again. I took the freakin pieces apart myself and glued it back together with Gorilla glue (still smells in my helmet now). But all this is not even the worst part. I mainly bought this helmet for it's drop down shade and throughout the course of 3 years, this cheap slide down system they have kept breaking on my constantly. I am one of the cleanest, most careful person you'll ever meet so I take very good care of my belongings. A quality helmet should last you at least 5 years, not 3, even with all the babying I do to my gear. October 29, 2015
Head Wrong Size Great helmet, love the sun shield, good ventilation for the price point. Bad fit for my head, very uncomfortable (XXXL) with lots of pressure on the jaw. Decided to suck it up and see if the foam would break in but foam is winning. For a flat black helmet the "S" logo on the front should not be chrome imo. Perhaps glossy black instead, style miss but no big deal. October 12, 2015
Worth every penny Bought this as my first-ever motorcycle helmet and I doubt I could have done better, even if my budget was $400. Pros: Style is good, nothing super 'special' but that's okay Noise is moderate. I need more volume on my Sena headset than my girlfriend does in her Shoei Qwest. Liner and straps/pads are of good quality Easily installed my Sena SMH-5FM headset, speakers and mic, especially when compared to my girlfriend's Shoei Qwest Internal sun shade is SO nice...especially after watching people carry an awkwardly shaped spare visor with them to swap in/out and get scratched up in the process. Sizing fit my narrow face very well, although I sort of agree that the air pump is cool, but I don't need to use it. Could be useful if you needed to loan your helmet to someone or maybe if your weight fluctuates up or down a bit? Also, I appreciate that they use 2-3 different outer 'shell' sizes with the 4-5 different liner sizes so that if you get a smaller size, it doesn't make you look too much like a bobble-head doll lol. Anti-fog tends to work fairly well and the 'cracked' position for the visor gets rid of fog immediately Primary visor is easy to remove and install. Vents are easy to locate and easy to operate Cons: The internal sun-shade is pretty difficult to remove and/or clean, but if you don't ride with the visor wide open and sun-shade down, then it won't get dirty anyway. As mentioned before, the 'cracked' position on the visor will not let you open the visor from there, you have to move the lever to the 'unlocked' position to then raise/lower the visor. The 'locked' position on the visor... I guess I'm not sure what this is for since the visor closes all the way very securely without it. Visor seemed to collect scratches/swirls/spider-web scratches easily, making night riding and direct sunlight problematic. You can remedy this by being very careful when removing bugs, and also polishing the visor with something like PlastX.... or just spend $40 and replace it. Airflow is good... I can really feel the air moving up and over the top of my head, but there's not a discernible difference between having the chin and top vents open vs closed. Overall I'm very satisfied with this helmet. It's extremely good value, but not cheaply made and has great features. October 1, 2015
My second Exo500 I like the features of this helmet, built in sun visor, cheek pump, works with my Sena Bluetooth units. August 31, 2015
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 October 5, 2015
great helmet this is my second scorpion helmet. my previous is an EXO 500. this is a lot better than the first one specially I love the sun visor and the pump option recommend it great helmet would not expect any less from scorpion! August 19, 2015
Great winter helmet for me. Quiet and warm. Great vision, drop down internal visor very easy to use and gives great coverage. After having a "Shark" flip top this helmet is quiet and very comfortable. The only negative for me personally is the "D Ring" chin strap, I prefer the easy fastening ratchet style. Overall great value for money. August 10, 2015

Judit P: I`ve been riding with the Scorpion exo-500 for the past 1.5 yreas. I had dropped it twice with the clear visor open. Murphy`s law made sure both times it fell on the visor. The second time popped the visor off and I lost few springs. Figured it is time to replace.

Light weight. Snug fit. The inner dark shield works great up to 50-55m/hr after that the wind catches anyways under the open clear shield. Very easy to operate.

Overall a great helmet.

A shopper asked: I am looking for a 3XL helmet to replace my HJC. I am looking at the HJC FG17 and the Scorpion EXO 500. I would like a fit that is more "long oval" than my current HJC. How does the Scorpion compare in that respect? I like the Scorpion's features better of the two helmets. Mar 26, 2015

Kurtis M: I bought this helmet for my wife. She has trouble fitting other helmets due to pressure applied to her forehead. While neither of us have worn an HJC, I can say that that it seems to have a more oval-like shape. Reviews on the web of the helmet describe the fire as "roundish top" and "narrow sides".

A shopper asked: I think I'm pretty dead set on getting a scorpion helmet. I'm a little unclear as to which one to go with. I have a Honda CBR 600RR. The video states that the 500 is the way to go for sport riding and the 1100 is the way to go for the upright cruiser type bikes, but then in the Q&A section there's an answer that says the opposite. So which is it? Sport bike riders should get the 500 or the 1100?? Feb 23, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The EXO-500 and EX0-1100 are extremely versatile helmets and would work well on a sport bike as well as cruiser/standard bike. Some people prefer the 500 while others prefer the 1100 for a sport bike. Ultimately it will come down graphic choice and material preference. May 2, 2012
Reply to RevZilla Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Heidi S: I tried on both. The 1100 definitely has a different internal shape than the 500. I'd say the 1100 is more oval and narrower and the 500 is more round. It comes down to your head shape and you should try them on. Mar 26, 2012

Paul32: I have the same bike and I own the 700 series and at 155mph I have no problems what so ever. I would say go with what you like and if you don't like it exchange it for the other. Feb 26, 2012

which site should i use?
Dec 11, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
fraz k: Use the Scorpion site but I would go with what ever size you use a majority of the time. I'm a medium usually and that was pretty spot on with this helmet. Small adjustments can be remedied since the helmet had little airbags that can be inflated by pumping air via a button on the helmet. This creates a more snug fit and a more comfortable ride.

A shopper asked: According to all of the literature and videos I've been frequenting, this helmet is about medium round/meant for those with a somewhat rounder-shaped head. Has anyone with an intermediate oval head tried on/own this helmet? How does it feel compared to helmets that are meant for intermediate ovals? Is there a major difference? Thank you. Mar 15, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: We've found that the Scorpion EXO-500 Helmet offers a very good fit for an intermediate oval head. It will be a bit more snug on the top of the head sides but the difference is not that significant. If you have a neutral or slightly oval head shape, the Scorpion EXO-500 Helmet should fit you properly. Mar 23, 2012

Vincenzo510: I have worn Arai Quantums for the last 14 years and have just recently started using the EXO-500 as a replacement commuting helmet and I can say that after 3 weeks of use, this helmet fits about as oval as my Arai Quantum on my 60-mile round trip commute. Oct 10, 2012

OldManRick: It is recommended to wash them by hand. From the owner's manual:

Once removed place cheek pads
and crown liner in sink or
bucket with warm water and
mild detergent. Dish soap works
well. Use hands to aggitate.
Rinse thoroughly then squeeze
to remove excess water. Hang
dry or use machine on NO heat

A shopper asked: The details say that there are three shell sizes. What does that mean? can you get different head shapes but all in this helmet?

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
David B: What it means is that the hard part of the helmet comes in 3 sizes. If you put a small medium and large next to each other, you could tell the difference in size. Most helmets are 1 size shell but the padding on the inside is small medium or large. This helmet has both inside and outside size. Hope this helped! Sep 17, 2015

wyatt r: As far as I know snell and dot are two completely different ratings. Some helmets have both ratings but most have one or the other, and the EXO is DOT rated. There is a manufacturer date I found under the head liner, it's on a white tag about an inch and half square. Didn't have to remove the liner, just lifted it up a little in the spot the tag is located to see the numbers.
Word of advise. Do NOT clean the inner smoked shield with windex or probably any other kind of glass cleaner. It totally ruins the coating on it and causes severe blurring. I had to spend hours try correct my f-up. And it's not nearly as good as it was when it was new. Probably have to buy a new inner visor soon.

A shopper asked: I ordered the EVO 100 from you and it came w/a clear shield. I have since learned that smoke and amber tint are also available. How can I get them? Jul 23, 2012

A shopper asked: This is an awesome helmet just to start, but when I was looking at the helmet I noticed there were some ear pockets in the helmet and I was curious to know if a pair of small speakers would fit in there or are those pockets for other purposes? Thanks Jul 18, 2012

RevZilla: Yes, the cut-outs featured in the Scorpion EXO-500 Helmet were designed to allow you to fit a set of speakers or install a communication system such as the Sena SMH-10 or the Cardo Scala Rider G9. Jul 19, 2012

A shopper asked: Do you guys know if the shell size is the same for the L and XL? I have a size L and depending on how much hair I have on my head it can become too snug and I wanted to find out if I can put an XL liner in it to make it fit better. Apr 25, 2012

RevZilla: The 3 shell sizes for the EXO-500 are XS-S, M-L, and XL-3XL, so the liners aren't interchangeable between the L and XL. Apr 26, 2012

anthony c asked: is the internal visor dark enough to not have to use sunglasses? also, has anyone had any issues with the internal visor distorting the view? iv got a little concern with the internal visor not going down far enough and obstructing my view Nov 20, 2013

Philippe M: I wouldn't say the visor is dark enough to never need sunglasses, but it certainly will cover your needs 90% of the time. I've never had any issues with it distorting my view, though if the front shield is dirty, seeing through both can strain your eyes a bit over long distances. No problems with where the visor sits in the helmet. It comes down right over my nose and looks correctly placed.

My biggest gripes with this model are the weight, weak ventilation, and sizing. I've used mediums in most other helmet brands and even the large is a tight fit. So much so that the air bladders are useless at this point. Considering the fairly heavy weight, bumping up to the XL size seems like a lose loose. I'm hoping the pads wear a bit more over time and the air pads help keep it snug. Ventilation is minimal at best, but cracking the shield open using the small lever setting fixes that quickly.

Gerard G: I live in AZ so the sun is pretty bright here and I find that the visor is plenty dark. I still will wear sunglasses on some occasions, but I really like being able to switch from the shaded visor to no visor in a second as lighting conditions change. Keep in mind that you are looking through two pieces of plastic so it does reduce vision some, of course you could flip the clear screen up and just use the visor. The visor comes down low enough for me that it is not a distraction, but it is not quite the same as wearing sunglasses. Overall, I love the helmet! Nov 20, 2013

Austin J: In my experience the stock internal sun visor doesn't do a lot to cut out glare or sunlight. I bought the darker version of the sun visor and it works much better. I've had no problems with the sun visor distorting vision through the helmet in any way. The visor pulls down far enough into the helmet that it has no problems at all blocking your view. You can see as well with the visor as you can without the visor, it just makes things darker. Nov 21, 2013

Vincent C: First off, sorry for the late response. The visor is adequate for riding in the afternoon with the sun on my left shoulder. I usually leave work and commute with my exo-500 in a standard style motorcycle position as well as on my sport bike. I have a round head and the visor is good enough to commute with. I have not experienced any problems with the visor obstructing my view. I hope that helps. Dec 11, 2013

Timothy N: The internal visor is dark enough for everything except direct sunset light above the horizon. The only time I have had an issue with distortion is when I come out of the tuck. The edge of the internal visor hits the bottom edge of my view, distorting things right infront of me on the road. Nov 3, 2014

brad h: The visor is dark enough for me I have the same darkness of lens in my oakleys. There is no obstruction of the view with the sunglass down. This is my favorite helmet that I've used and one of the best values I found for the quality of this helmet. Nov 20, 2013
