Scorpion Women's EXO-R410 Orchid Helmet
Fits and protects a head
new rider, and only in cool weather so far. Venting in face is substantial, and mesh barrier at chin helps keep bugs/debris from flying into your face. It's gorgeous to look at, and the emergency remove able cheek pads are there in case emt needs to remove your helmet carefully. Comforting! I do wish I had a tinted visor to pull down, but I'm happy with this helmet.

I'm very pleased with this helmet. It's light, well designed and built, and it's both DOT and Snell certified. The high vis color really helps drivers to see me. Excellent!

This is my first helmet, but it's fantastic! At this price point and with all the features, I believe this helmet is a fantastic buy. The helmet fits snug at first but the padding has begun to break in and mold to my face. It's very comfortable, and the white color looks very bright. I'm very satisfied with the purchase, and I would recommend this helmet!

crash tested. ..
I recently lowsided into a turn and was able to walk away because of awesome gear. The helmet did wonderfully. I went down and slid a bit and the helmet stayed on with the visor locked in place. I would definitely recommend this helmet. Truth be told it does fog if you ride in the morning but not too bad. The fact I was able to walk away with no bruises or marks on my face is wonderful. Safe riding everyone!

Nice looking HIGH-VIZ Helmet
The helmet overall quality is very good. It has a gloss finish and the yellow Hi-Viz color looks better than the pictures, I consider myself intermediate oval and found It fits very snug, hope that it becomes a little loose as I keep using it. The faceshield is the best anti-fog I have ever used. The upper vents works pretty good and the gasket seal keeps rain out of the helmet. I totally recomend this helmet. If you can try it at a store, would be better.

We are all snowflakes!
So before I bought this bucket I was discouraged by some of the noise complaints, but then i thought "ya know my head is on the larger side of the XXL spectrum, I bet the wind noise will be minimal because my head fills the interior more". And i was right. Look there are so many factors that go into helmet noise that we are not all going to have the same experience. Seat height/position, they way your head fills the helmet, probably climate? Who knows, but this is one of the quieter helmets I've owned. For this price you are getting a helmet that's quality is far beyond the cost. I've heard great things about scorpion's anti fog coating, and I must confirm. I find most coatings to esentially just give up after a certain point durring a trip and allow fog to form. The scorpion shield only hazes, it does detract from vision but it is in no way close to the obstructive distortion (awseome band name) that Ive experienced with other "anti fog" shields. The comfort of the padding is almost too good to be true, I find the slick feel of this wicking material to be more comfortable on long rides than say a more cloth like material. I havent had it through a summer of sweaty riding yet so that aspect remains to be seen. Now the fit was a little scary at first, especially the intitial try on but once I got it over my bulbous noggin I was relieved. The neck curtain and chin skirt do their job of both stablizing the helmet and preventing upward gusts into your face. the crown padding at first seemed a little tight, but it has since broken in to be very comfortable. My one issue is the encroaching of the shell into my peripheral. Not a huge issue, but you will notice. I am still able to get a full assessment of my surroundings with mirrors and a quick head turn. The finish is gorgeous, I'm not big inot the tribal design but I dig it on this lid. A word of caution though, the red accents on the white version of the slinger are glittery, I repeat glittery. So if you are not a female, or have seriously repressed all femininity, then be forewarned. Me? Eh..it's growing on me. Especially since i've added the gold shield. All in all, just grab one, you'll feel like you finally got the upperhand on a retailer, and may actually feel a little guilty about paying so little.

Really nice helmet and features . . .especially for cost
I have had other more expensive helmets and so far I like this one better. It is still breaking in but so far really good, I may need a little more room in the cheek pads (just the shape of my face) but waiting to see until its fully broke in.
