Scorpion Women's EXO-R410 Orchid Helmet
I must say I bought this with some hesitation... Only did so because it was on sale.. But this is the best gear in my arsenal.. Quiet... Fits right... Visually awesome.. Glad to say I haven't had to test the safety rating.. But it is amazing... A must buy..

Great value for the price!
The specification videos and sizing were very helpful. When I first tried the helmet on, it was very tight in the forehead padding, but after a few rides, it loosened up and feels great! There is definitely a bit of road noise compared to my previous helmet, but with the safety ratings and styling, can't beat it for the price!

This product is great!
I love this helmet due to the cool safety features underneath where if you get in a wreck they can basically pull the padding out so they don't hurt your neck anymore than it already could be. It's a very stylish helmet, the only thing I wish the exo-500s had was the internal visor but it's still an amazing helmet without it.

Very visible helmet with some good features
I wanted a high viz quality helmet with excellent safety ratings, but I was on a budget. This helmet fit the bill. It's DOT certified, and my helmet is stamped with a Snell 2015 certification. I normally wear medium helmets, and this one fits, but is slightly snugger than I am use to. It seems to be loosening up slightly after a month of usage, and became more comfortable.
The visor has a feature to defog, there are safety pull straps for emergency response folks to remove the helmet in the event of an accident, and it is ultra high viz.
Visibility is excellent out of the helmet, it is a little noisy but not too much, and the comfort is getting better as it is breaking in. My one annoyance with the helmet is the removable chin guard keeps falling out, which is annoying but a very minor issue.
Overall, it's a great helmet for the price. You sacrifice a little in terms of quietness and a little comfort to get a very safe high viz helmet at this price range. Solid hi-viz colored helmets are hard to come by, especially at this price point, and none will have DOT and Snell 2015 certifications either unless you step to a significantly higher priced helmet. I would purchase this again, and I certainly recommend it as well. If you want a quiet ultra comfort helmet, look elsewhere and expect to pay at least twice the cost of this helmet. If you want a very safe hi-viz helmet but do not have a lot of cash - definitely get this helmet.

great style and comfort
Purchased for my girlfriend to keep the wind out of her eyes. She loves it and wants to ride more... should have bought it earlier!

This helmet looks amazing and has great features for airflow, safety, and comfort. My only qualm is that the cheek pads seem much tighter on my face than the ones that I tried on in the store. Almost uncomfortably so, but I am hoping that these break in a bit with more use. The EXO-400's had cheek pads that you could buy in different thicknesses, but the 410's do not. Since I bought a size Medium, which is the largest size that uses the Small shell, I cannot switch out for the size Large cheek pads.

Great for the track
I bought this on sale because i wanted a nice helmet for the track that also had a lock for the visor. Air flow is great and there is no issues with peripheral vision

Good value at this price
I was looking for a hi viz yellow helmet and this was one of my few options. It does not have a lot of features, but it is Snell rated and reasonably priced. It is also very light; my last helmet was an HJC RPHA10 (which sadly does not come in hi viz, only in solid yellow) and the EXO-R410 feels as light if not lighter than the RPHA10. On the down side, I get more wind noise in low speed street riding with the Scorpion, which means I ride with the helmet closed almost all the time; not the worst thing. There is a lever position that provides a slim air crack, and it works for the most part, but this helmet would be awesome if it had an actual detent for a small opening.
