Scorpion EXO-R2000 Dispatch Helmet
This is my secondary helmet to my Shoei Rf1100.
I use my scorpion helmet on more hotter days because of the A1 air venting it flows. The comfort is great once it's been broke into. The graphics tht go's along w/ the color scheme is awesome. What made the deal even better Rev Zilla accepted a price match offer for this helmet so I ended up saving close to $40 bucks.

Superb Helmet (regardless of price)
This helmet rocks, The price point is just the cherry on the cake. It feels super safe (and the Snell2010 proves it). It flows a TON of air at speed, which naturally makes it slightly noisier than other helmets, but with earplugs it doesn't matter. I love the slim profile (no bobblehead look) which really helps at speed compared to other helmets I've owned.
It's also super stable, really designed ti be in the tuck position, theres almost 0 drag and no buffeting whatsoever.
The vision angles are really superior, and again helps a lot while in the tuck, compared to other helmets which force you to ill-adjust the helmet on your face or look up.
I love the feeling of the interior, soft, but really snug (great for going at speed on track or in the canyons). The air pump is a nice aditional touch and I love using it.
Great chin curtain, easy to know controls and vents, the face shield swaps super easy and the added lock and ventilation is super useful.
Did I mention it comes with a dark face shield IN THE BAG?!
Man... this helmet has it all and most importantly it helps you focus on what is important - Distraction free riding and protection. I could go on and on, but basically if you are considering this helmet, BUY IT.

Great bang for the dollar and Love the AirFit
I have several helmets and i find myself using this on warmer days. It flows air really well and i have never felt overheated in it like some other helmets i ride with. I have a Shoei RF-1100, Qwest and ARAI RX-q and this. The head shape is very similar on all of them so if you have worn any of those helmets, this should work well for you.
On size, i buy a medium in all helmets but in this i ended up with a large. Makes getting the helmet on a bit easier, still fits snug and once you pump up the air cheek pads, its a perfect snug fit. After 4 months of use, becauise of the air pads, still fits like a new helmet. I love it.
Because it ventilates air very well, it is a louder helmet. Its just a hair louder than the ARAI RX-q. But you can definitely tell the difference between my 2 Shoeis and this. But i don't mind it. If noise is a big factor for you, wear ear plugs.
Overall i would highly recommend this helmet. I purchased a discontinued graphic on clearance, not this one, but its the same helmet so the review is still valid. Graphics are just personal taste.

After being broken in, this helmet is a great mix of style, comfort and protection.
I have now owned this helmet for about 3 months. When I first received it,
it did seem to fit a bit tighter on the cheeks than I was used to for my size.
My assumption was that racing style helmets are not made for the same
level of comfort as touring helmets. This proved to be wrong after about a week of wearing the helmet. I can now wear it for hours without any pressure points.
One thing I have definitely noticed that's different than my previous helmets is the length of this helmet. I have a large nose, so when I put it on my nose reaches the rubber flare at the front of the helmet. This isn't an uncomfortable problem until I get up to around 80-90mph. Even in a full tuck, the wind pushes the helmet up against my nose. But this might just be due to my over-sized sniffer. The shorter length also might be necessary to maintain its extremely light weight.
Another large difference when wearing this helmet is the sound level. It seems that Scorpion assumed that everyone wearing this was going to be wearing earplugs, so they took advantage of another way to reduce the weight. I have taken up wearing earplugs since I got this helmet, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wears this if they're going above 60mph.
A side note: my last helmet was stolen with my Bluetooth speaker in it (Sena 3s), so I haven't had a chance to try this helmet with Bluetooth. Based on the way it fits, I wouldn't think it has room for a Bluetooth.
I am very pleased with the look of this helmet. One thing I wish Scorpion would have done differently is to contrast the geometry with matt vs gloss paint on the graphic.. But I can't complain because it still looks awesome.
The new Scorpion sheild system is a huge improvement. It is more convenient (didn't know that was possible) than the old one, and it looks way sleeker.
In terms of ventilation this is an awesome helmet. I live in Oregon where it's cold, so when I do want to open up the vents if my head is hot, I can feel every airstream. The vents on top are definitely designed to be in a 3/4-full tuck position for maximum air flow.
In summary, I thought this helmet was going to be too extreme for my style of riding, but it has proven to meet all my needs as a casual rider that likes to hit the twisties when it stops raining.

I messed up....
It's a good helmet, very good vision, the only reason I give it 4 star and comfort 1 star is cause when I tried the floor model it fit well, but after 3 weeks or wearing then bottom is still too narrow and it kind of give me a headache, it's crazy how floor model is so much different even tho I have 3 weeks to break it in , but air flow is good and crazy vision, lol

Solid helmet for the money.
For the price, this is a great helmet. Unfortunately the sizing is a little weird. I got a large at first and wore it around the house for about 30 mins,I started to get a headache as It was extremely tight and hard to get on and off. I sent it back and got an XL, fits snug and is comfortable but when riding at higher speeds, I notice the helmet pushes back a little as well as becomes fairly noisy.
I probably wouldn't have been very happy paying bike shop retail of 375$ for this helmet but for 229 it was a great deal.

Excellent helmet for a first time rider.
This is my first helmet as I just started riding but I really like it. I did get it on clearance so the low price makes it easier to love, but that doesn't stop this from being an excellent helmet. Very comfortable and wind noise is good considering how much ventilation there is. I never fog up the lens no matter the temperature. If you're on the fence about this helmet don't be!

First off the helmet is on a closeout sale for $230 which is a steal for what you get in this helmet. This was my first motorcycle helmet and I couldn't have been happier with my purchase.
Graphics are amazing(I got the sky blue colorway)
Air Fit system
Air flow is phenomenal
Comes with clear and dark smoke lenses
Having to pump the helmet up every time you put the helmet back on but in turn it makes the helmet fit better than with normal cheek pads
Overall this helmet is fantastic and I would highly recommend you pick on up before they sell out :D
