Scorpion EXO-R410 Orchid Helmet
This helmet is a great starter helmet and can be used on the track.
This helmet was bought for my girlfriend. She has been using it for around 2 1/2 months and from what she has told me the helmet is a great fit and very comfortable. The helmet is a bit on the heavy sid but that is because it is DOT and SNELL which was a feature she asked for because she wanted the maximum protection. She said that the road noise is bot bad but the helmet could be quieter. She wished it had a drop down visor but it is a race spec helmet so she understands. The graphics are awesome and that was one of the reasons she chose this helmet. She recommends this helmet for anyone who wants max protection a bit of style and good comfort.

excellent helmet! unique, stylish, comfortable and effective!
I really enjoyed this helmet, from the looks, to the fit to, the wide angle, and the weight was light compared to other models. I owned it for about a week and used it everyday to and from work. After only a week of using it I fell in love! Unfortunately I was hit by a vehicle and in the accident it saved my life. It was easy to remove while in pain, they didn't have to cut it and were able to utilize the emergency straps to remove the helmet from my head. There was a gash and a few scratches on the helmet but my head was fine. It was a pretty bad accident, I was flown about 30ft from my bike and my whole left side was broken and bruised. They said I landed and my head banged on the road upon impact. This helmet did what it was supposed to do, not only look good and be efficient but saved my life as well. When I get back on 2 wheels I will definetely pick up another one.

I bought the white version of this helmet and it looks really nice. This helmet is comfortable, looks great, and is a great value. It is lighter and quieter than my last helmet. I can actually feel the air flow across my scalp. The shield is easy to remove and replace You can easily wear glasses with this helmet. I like the buttons on the top vents and also the mouth vent is nice.
I ordered a medium even though I measured a small. I find it to be comfortable and snug. I can't see fitting into a small.

The helmet is very light for a DOT and Snell certified helmet at this price point. I was against purchasing a black helmet and bought this one only because of the iridescent design. I've never had any fogging issues even on the hottest and most humid of days. The best feature, other than it being so comfortable I don't even feel like I'm wearing a helmet, is that this particular model allows a pair of glasses to slide easily on and off. Because I wear glasses all of the time (as contacts are uncomfortable) this feature was a selling point for me. For the price point this is a fantastic helmet and I would recommend to any female rider!

I was a little skeptical of ordering online due to the fact that I couldn't try this on first. I got an Icon in 2xs that fit great when I tried it on, but when I rode, was crushing my head. I ordered the XS and it got perfectly. Very snug around my face and very comfortable. I like the lock on the shield and that it can be changed so easily. I have 2 gripes about this helmet. I was hoping it had the pump for the padding, which it doesn't and while the shield provides great vision, it did fog up a little even with the breath deflector. Bear in mind, I was also riding in the rain for a considerable amount of time. I definitely recommend this helmet. It is very comfortable and looks great! I thought it was black and purple from the picture, but the purple changes color in the light-green and white.

Awesome first helmet!
Being a newbie lady rider I didn't want to fork out a huge amount of money for a helmet, neither did I want a reallly girly pink helmet with fairies and butterflies on it. And that's when I came across this one. The picture doesn't do it justice at all. When the sun hits it this helmet is awesome looking with a mixture of green and purple worked into the white faded graphics. The only really complaint I have is that it is a little stuffy in the cheek padding but I could probably break it in a little more. All in all I absolute love my helmet!
