Scorpion EXO-900 Transformer Furtive Helmet
Great Features and Quality!
I am a 27 y/o female. I chose this helmet because it does have the modular feature. you can easily flip up the face to take the helmet off and on so it does not destroy your hair or makeup. It is also one of the very few modular helmets that is DOT and ECE approved. It is a little on the heavy side, due to the modular aspect, but not really bad at all. The fit is nice and snug, and I can still trun my head back to see traffic behind me (which was very hard to do in my previous helmet.) Also, when I look behind me on the highway, the helmet is aerodynamic enough where I don't feel like I'm gonna blow off the back of the bike when I turn my head. One of my favorite features is the flip down sun visor! When driving to work, I am facing the sunrise dead on and absolutely can not see at all, now with the visor, I just pop it down and up soo easily while on the highway and I can see just fine! I love how this helmet looks, and also love the feature of converting it into an open face. :) I am very happy with my purchase :)

it is a very safe helmet
I have had only one minor spill due to gravel but only came away with a scratch on the helmet, no damage to the cranium
the helmet fits my head with no discomfort and is not heavy.
That being said, the shield sometimes fogs up a little and the padding around the cheek area is a bit too tight. now I do have a bit of a square jaw but it not so wide that it would leave indentations on my face.

Everything I was looking for
This is a stylish, well constructed modular helmet with a fit that is spot on. I would not hesitate in making his purchase again. Highly recommended.

Great value in a modular!
Been riding with this helmet for about three weeks now and I absolutely love this helmet. My head is a round shape when viewed from the top and measures 22 1/4. I ordered a medium and it's a little snug, but it's my understanding that a proper fit will be. I have not experienced any discomfort in up to three hour rides. (I have not ridden beyond that yet)
Airflow could be better, but I can live with it. Being a modular, I do sometimes flip it up at stoplights to cool off. It's also handy for talking to gas attendants.
Overall I would say this helmet is quiet. It is quieter than my Akuma Frost and Arai RX7RR4. I do however wear earplugs all the time and can notice a slight whistle above 55 or so. Another review mentions this is caused by the slot that the interior sunglass visor comes down from. I suspect that this is a spot on analysis because it is less noticeable when the interior sunglass part is extended.
I really like the ruby visor and will try to post up a review of it.

Scorpion EXO-900 Transformer Furtive Helmet
This is my second Scorpion. Loved the first one, and this one is a bit better with the graphics. Very comfortable, but slight noise when on the highway. Great bang for the buck!

Loaded with features the have benefits to all riders.
Keeps head normal no sweating in the hot desert rides. Easy to transform from full to open face. Drop down sun visor is the best. My chin will hit the full face shield when I flex it out, but I do not ride in that position so it works well.
The weight is balanced well and not heavy feeling as with other full face helmets I have owned. Noise level is good as the expensive full face helmets I have owned.
I ride a K1200LT BMW on long distance trips and forget about wearing the helmet it is that comfortable.
My wife has one just like it and she says it the best helmet she has ever had, no complaints as she can work all features with gloves on.
Scorpion scored big with the Transformer.

great customer service
bought the furitive in white for my girlfriend and she loved it. the first one came damaged however revzilla went above and beyond in my opinion to make it right. i wanted her to have a good protecting helmet but also have the comfort of quickly opening it up when she wanted to. the transforming abitity was an added feature and is fairly simple to do with a little practice. nice helmet and looks great!

Very Nice Helmet...
The main reason why I chose this helmet was the style and color...I wanted a modular (for flip up at fuel stations and stop-n-go traffic during the summer heat)...also I wanted white for visibility in traffic that had some nice looking graphics (but nothing extreme like skulls or crazy swirls) and this version of the EXO-900 fit the bill...
I wear a size "large" and the fit is perfect...though I have to flip the helmet open when taking on/off due to the wind guard under the chin (not a big deal)...wind noise is very low and the venting gets the job done...for those of you who have a more pointed crown head may not find this helmet comfortable...(as with my brother...he tried it on and started to get a headache within 5 minutes)...but for me the helmet is great and the flip down internal sun visor is a plus...
My main complaint is the optional sun visor for 3/4 wear...I wish this was a separate item to order so that the helmet may have been sold at a little lower price point...as I do not plan on using this helmet in 3/4 mode...
Pros: Style/graphics...internal visor...
Cons: Price...chin strap could use more padding...
Would I purchase again?...Yes...
