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 the GT philosophy and is fitted as standard with the last generation visor of its elder.  And as if that were not enough, it integrates the SpeedView built-in retractable sunvisor treated with anti-fog coating on both sides, two accessories usually reserved for high-end helmets.

Comprising 3 caps and a lighter and more durable shell than its predecessor, fitted with a very soft and comfortable inner lining thanks to the new KwikWick2 liner and triple density foam cheek pads, the Scorpion EXO-500 Helmets will drastically change your expectations from a full face helmet of the standard range. Equipped with the revolutionary Airfit technology and a state-of-the-art ventilation system, chances are the new Scorpion will steal the show from the much more expensive helmets among those daily users who want to buy the best helmet for the best price.


  • Kwikwick2 Liner - moisture wicking, hypoallergenic, removable, machine washable, soft
  • SpeedView Retractable sunvisor - treated with antifog on both sides
  • Airfit technology - Inflate and deflate the cheek pads to make it fit perfectly- this provides a better fit thus better safety and shock absorption.
  • Speedshift visor system for 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 design for wind-tunnel tested comfort. EPS-lined chin bar for additional protection.
  • Triple density foam cheek pads
  • 3 Shell Sizes
  • 3 Year Warranty

Good Helmet The helmet looks good and delivers what what it says. It does fit a little large and looks rather round. It flows a good amount of air and I am comfortable riding in the summer in it. July 16, 2014
BB, great for 1st time riders I was very pleased with this helmet. I spent a lot of time researching and this was a great buy for the money spent. It has good airflow and is made to last. The only negative is that it is a bit load compared to the other mid-high helmets. If you are a novice rider concerned with comfort and durability as well as good looks, juts click that buy button. YOU KNOW YOU WANT IT! - keep the rubber side down June 26, 2014
great helmet for the price love this helmet. the cheek pads are tight and certainly there is no need to "inflate" them, which I think is a bit gimmicky anyways. otherwise, this is loaded with features. love the internal sun visor and the mechanism is easy to use, feels solid. no fogging whatsoever. fit is overall great, especially now that it has broken in a bit. reasonably quiet. good airflow. July 2, 2014
overall a pretty good helmet. Great helmet for the price......................... June 25, 2014
Good helmet, but a little noisy. Pros: Looks cool, high visibility, built in sunglasses, quality windscreen Cons: definitely on the louder side (so much that I rarely wear it because my HJC helmet is far quieter) In all other areas it is about average. It fits small. June 16, 2014
Nice helmet for the money Bought this for my girlfriend (love my Shoei RF1100 too much to wear one of these myself). She loved the look of the helmet. The liner is super nice. Also it has a TON of features for a helmet in this price range but...the pump feature in the cheek pads isn't working. Honestly, I would've returned it but it fits her so well without inflating them, that we just decided to keep it. I do like the quick-change face shield on Scorpions, too. Overall it's a good value for the money. I really just took a star off for the busted cheek pads. June 11, 2014
Coming from a Shoei X11... I have had several helmets in the past, including a Shoei X11, Gmax G68( great sub $80 helmet), Shoei RF1000. This one is by far my favorite. It's the first helmet that fits me well. Although with other manufactures, I am a medium but I am a large with the EXO-500. The air pumps DO help a great deal to get the size dialed in, if the helmet fits you a bit loose(I don't need them, unless i'm doing a track day or something) The airflow is perfect, you can really feel it on your face, but it's not overpowering. The helmet crack feature is perfect for me. The shield is TRUE anti-fog. It does not fog...I can't believe out well it worked on a cold day. I did get the mirrored shield and I have to say that this is the first one I have used that has not scratched in the first week of riding. I also like being able to go out with my clear visor and using the drop down sunglasses. Then later, when it's night time, I don't have to switch shields. Which is more convenient than I realized. I could go on and on, just know that every feature this helmet claims is actually useful. For some reason, I always thought the quality of scorpion would be sub par, but after owning this helmet for a couple months I can testify that the opposite is true. This is a high quality, top notch helmet that I would recommend to any rider. The ONLY downside is that is it not SNELL approved, so that may be a problem for some people at tracks and whatnot. As far as the actual safety of the helmet. It does meet ECE standards, which is considered to be as good if not better than SNELL. June 9, 2014
Scorpion never fails me! Ive purchased very expensive to as cheap as possible and price is NOT gonna tell you if that helmet is the one for you so never look at price, it could be the cheapest helmet you could find and be the absolute best quality and fit for you. I got my usual medium size and thought it would be half a size too big, like they usually are, but to my happy surprise, it fits me PERFECTLY and doesnt make me feel like i have a bobble head. It is light weight and curves my face without making me feel like im puckering up. The air vents are generous and work well and can be moved around with gloves on. The visor locks so be careful because the locking ,mechanism is close to the sun visor that comes down inside the helmet. I guess that is why i put an "average" score on the feature section. My only disappointment is that the visor isnt as dark as they used to make them, basically its ineffective from really deflecting the sun like my first Scorpion helmet was. If your buying THIS helmet for the sun visor, don't. But as for sound and wind reduction, i LOVE it..much better than other brands. The graphics are subtle and very cool and mostly on the side, i wear dragon spikes on the top of my helmet that i add myself and i hate having to apply it over any graphics so i was happy to see that i didnt cover up too much cause the graphics are mainly on the sides. I totally recommend this helmet. June 5, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Jason H: my buddy has the same one Jul 20, 2014
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.

mrtekle: It comes with the clear one but when I ordered mine I also ordered the 'Dark Smoke" visor and love it. It looks so cool on the all black helmet I have. People can't even see my eyes which I like and it's not too dark for me. I haven't done any nighttime riding but I'm pretty sure I would switch to the clear one just to be safe. May 9, 2013

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

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

A shopper asked: Just bought a black EXO 500 and I'm filling out the warranty card - can you please tell where I can find the Snell # and manufacture date? Thank-you in advance. Nov 13, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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.

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

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (1)
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
Reply to Gerard Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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
Reply to Austin Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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
Reply to Vincent Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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
