Scorpion EXO-R2000 Circuit Helmet
Great airflow and lightweight at a reasonable price.
I am very pleased with my Scorpion EXO-R2000. It is a lightweight, comfortable helmet with good vision capability. The visor is very easy to swap out, and it comes with a clear and dark smoked visor. The EXCELLENT air flow is my favorite characteristic of the helmet. There is zero buffeting at any speed, but there is a significant amount of wind noise. Overall, it is an excellent value for the price!

I bought this helmet mainly because the first helmet I bought was much too large and moved around quite a bit (I bought my first helmet before I knew anything about proper helmet fit).
My head measures in at about 23.5" and the Large fits perfectly. It's light and extremely comfortable. The design looks amazing when you see it in person (the pictures simply don't do it justice).
Unfortunately since I'm new to the motorcycling scene and don't have a bike yet, I can't speak for the quality of air flow, vision, noise level, or protection/durability.
All in all, given my limited experience, this helmet is 100% worth the price paid
** Please note that I currently do not own a motorcycle. The Ninja 300 that is shown at the bottom of this review is there because I was looking around at parts for a friend's bike and added it to the garage. I don't know how to change or remove it, so I guess it's stuck there for now xD **

Great for everyday ride!
I was debating between Bell RS-1 and I decided to go with Exo-R2000 to save a bit of money and it seemed to have more features and I do not regret at all. I finally got to try this helmet on the street and I love it! It does feel a bit tight on my cheeks, but other than that, it fits well, and feels fairly comfortable. The airflow is amazing as I thought my shield was open when it was actually closed. It doesn't bother me at all while riding and has tons of features for its price. Also comes with a smoked shield, which makes the helmet look even better. It does seem to have a bigger shell than other Large size helmet, but still feels light and sturdy. Excellent packaging and excellent helmet overall. Highly recommended to anyone that likes to cruise and speed!

My first impression out of the box was great. Slipped it on, I measure in at 23.5 inches and the L in this helmet was perfect. The inflatable cheek pads also make for an especially dialed in fit if you want it.
The field of view is great, the aerodynamics make it super easy to head check over the shoulder on high speed freeways. I ride in So-Cal in 90+ weather and this thing vents well even during scorchers.
The visor adjuster locking mechanism is straight forward and nice with a lock position all the way back, a cracked position for a little air, and then neutral. The one thing is the helmet can be kind of loud if you're merkin on the highway, but I usually ride with earplugs anyway.
Lastly, the comfort is good and plush, the d-ring straps are comfortable, and me likey the graphics on this particular model!

Love the features
I enjoy this helmet quite a lot, having ridden only with MX helmets (previous being the scorpion VX-34)
It's quieter, more comfortable, and air pump system actually works in this helmet (previous one leaked air).
The only gripe I have is that I have large ears, and sometime the interior of the helmet pushed against the top of my ear and causes discomfort and pain if not adjusted.

Super light weight helmet. Air flow is great with the visor up or down. Love it!

Great helmet . Air fit cheek pad system is great. Surprised.
I love this helmet. When I first got it and rode with all the vents open it was pretty loud. When you slightly tuck or ride a little less than full upright it is surprisingly quiet.
After taking it on a 1500 mile trip I am very happy with this helmet. Nice weight , the main reason I bought this in addition to the price . I have had more than one neck injury so weight is a factor. As it breaks in and I figure out what the best combination of vents are , the noise is much more manageable. I ride behind a windshield almost all of the time.
The features I like the most: The air-fit system for the cheek pads. I use this a lot. At higher speeds it really helps quiet down the helmet and to keep it rock steady on my head. No buffeting when I head check at all. The weight of the helmet. Comfort . The more I wear it the more I love it.
I was really pleased with the quality of this helmet. Some of the scorpion helmets I have looked at were kind of junky but not this one. The EXO-R2000 is a top notch helmet. I like the way it is set up. Lots of cool features that you actually enjoy using. I know it is a race helmet but I toured on a trike with it and loved it. I have had Arai, Shoei, HJC, Nexx, and a couple of others. I think this is one of the best helmets I have ever had. I hope when I go to purchase another helmet in a few years these are still around. One more thing , the visor seals up tightly and does not leak water in the rain. The anti-fog works reasonably well. I wear glasses under the helmet so the glasses fog up more than the shield does. When going under freeway speeds I use the shield lock mechanism and raise the shield for city venting, anti fog and cooling off.
All in all very happy with this helmet. Best helmet bag I have ever seen free with helmet. Dark visor with visor bag included with helmet. Well done Scorpion . Value , and an awesome helmet on one deal.
Revzilla rocks as always. Got the helmet to me intact and undamaged in two days for very reasonable rates. So I could have it to go on my trip with.

Saved my life
I struck an improperly turning SUV yesterday at around 50 mph and was thrown headfirst through trash cans and into a ditch. This helmet saved my life. It protected my face and was light enough that my head wasn't thrown around in the impact. My head didn't feel a thing even though it went through two large and full trashcans. the cans were obliterated but i suffered no head or neck injuries. Was I lucky? yes, but did the helmet provide outstanding protection? Yeah... I'm ordering a new one right away.
