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.

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.Jun 20, 2014
alan d: Got this mainly for it's drop down visor and anti fog coating. Great all around helmet. Fit great on me, but i had to go 1 size up, since scorpion helmets run small.Jun 10, 2014
James H: Other family members have the EXO-500. Great fit and finish and good price point.May 8, 2014
David B: I chose this helmet over the Shark S700 just for the sole fact that it has more features. The included breath guard, chin curtain, and air pump fitting design. I hear the ariflow is also better.Apr 29, 2014

John B: My wife has an exo1100 , my daughter has a 400 they both love them. I also have 250 and love it just want to try a full face. Never had on before I tried my wife's and thought I might like it. I saw this one and the reviews thought it might be the one best suited for me.Mar 12, 2014
Craig T: Reviews say its best for my head shape, price and sunshade feature.Mar 2, 2014
Alex D: Because a large Bio-metal was not available.Mar 1, 2014

Alex K: Helmet fit me perfectly. The sun visor is a very attractive feature to me and something I strongly weighed when choosing a helmet.Sep 12, 2013
Justin F: Chose because of head/helmet shape & quietness of helmetAug 28, 2013
Gerard G: hi vent design. Previous experience with Scorpion helmetsAug 12, 2013
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". I hope this helps!Mar 26, 2015
Vincent C:The visor sufficient for afternoon driving with the sun on your side. I think that I would prefer a darker tint but it's a good compromise between too dark and a light tint. I would consider this tint a medium smoke.Sep 11, 2014
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
James H:I don't have any personal experience with a headset and the Scorpion. However, my sons both have Scorpions and have used Sena headsets on long trips. They claim excellent results and no problems with fitment. I hope this helps.May 1, 2015
caleb r:i have the new sena 10C and it is alittle tight. But it works good, just need to wiggle the helmet to get my ear in a comfortable position. But the unit mounts on the side great and no issues so far.Jun 25, 2015
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
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
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
Kurtis M:This helmet works great with my Cardo Scala Rider. We did the adhesive for the mic originally, but it was hard to get the mike to pick up the voice. So we switched back to the wand. The wand works perfectly.May 1, 2015
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.Dec 11, 2014
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
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 o 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 heatNov 14, 2011
Cash B:I put an SMH-5 in and it worked great even over long distances. Longest trip may have been about 1400 miles total. I didn't have to really "alter" anything. I just installed the system like the directions said.Jun 18, 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.Nov 14, 2013
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? ThanksJul 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
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 viewNov 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
