Scorpion Women's EXO-R410 Orchid Helmet
6 months out, so far so good.
Got the white one for the wife. She likes it. The white one has a pearlescent gloss/shimmer to it, so it looks really nice.
Nothing broken on it so far, and she doesn't exactly treat her things gingerly either.
Her first helmet was a super budget Xpeed, and its quite obvious you get what you pay for. This helmet is much more solid and built better than both of my Shark helmets. Fit and finish is nice.
The only downside to this helmet though is it is harder to install Sena bluetooth systems on it. Very hard to find places to tuck wires in.

I like the details on the helmet was the main reason for purchasing it. The only thing I dislike about the helmet is it shows in pictures that it's black and purple, but is really black and white when the sun hits it just right it has the purple reflecting.

I bought this helmet for my wife since she's tired of the default pink and purple riding gear for women. She wanted something that looks aggressive and sporty with a good fit and and features. I read alot of reviews praising Scorpion helmets, so I figured we'd give this one a try. She prefers lighter helmets so we went with a basic design without all the drop down visors and added weight etc... The only thing added to this helmet is a SENA bluetooth.
The good- It's a pretty quiet helmet and the aerodynamic design of this helmet keeps your head from bobbing around and also doesn't jerk you around when you are doing lane checks. It looks great! When fitted with a SENA unit, the speaker cut-outs in the inner shell put the speakers right where they need to be so that the sound comes in nice and loud (even with ear-plugs). I love the fact that you can adjust the shield to city-mode with the lever on the left side of the helmet. Air flow inside the helmet is great!
The bad - not much bad, except that this is by far the least waterproof helmet we own. Even with the shield locked and all vents closed, 30 minutes in a steady rain and it was soaked through. Shields are too expensive.

Great first helmet
I got this helmet looking for the cheapest helmet that would not compromise protection. I haven't taken a spill with it, but I trust the Snell rating so I'm happy! Overall great helmet, only complaints are little airflow, it sometimes fogs up, and like all helmets I've worn it rubs on my beard line uncomfortably.

This product was great overall
The helmet overall is a great helmet. It looks awesome and feels really nice. The only problem I had was it fit me slightly tighter than I would have liked. I used the sizing chart for reference but it is probably just the shape of my head and not the helmet. The orange and black match my bike really well!

Great value for Snell/DOT
Have never purchased an "off-brand" helmet before, but I am pleasantly surprised. It appears to be well made and very functional. Good airflow, although slightly noisy. Screen changes easily. Normally a large but it was just too tight in this model. XL fits fine.
This is a great value for a helmet that is DOT/Snell rated.

I've had my eye on this helmet for the longest until I had the money for it, now that I finally have it, I'm not disappointed! It's even more beautiful in person and I'm so happy with it. Everyone tells me I look great with it and it really fits my style. The wind noise isn't as loud as my LS2 helmet, this is more insulated, the pads are super comfortable and the helmet feels very sturdy. I feel like the air vents could have been better because I feel like I don't get much air flow. It's pretty heavy, compared to my boyfriend's helmet (he has an Icon Airmada) and he has a Sena Bluetooth on it with speakers and a mic and a Gopro along with its mount. So I can't imagine how it's gonna feel when have a Gopro/Bluetooth setup.
For the sizing, I was very nervous if it was gonna fit or not but it fits perfectly. Just needs a little breaking in. At first I thought my head was gonna burst, but it feels great afterwards. I wear an XS.
But overall, great helmet. It's really worth the money! And it's both Snell AND Dot approved?!
