Scorpion EXO-100 Spitfire Helmet
My favorite helmet.
I got mine at my local bike shop, paid the full 124 bucks. This is my 2nd EXO-100. The first is retired after I went down at 45mph. Slid along under the bike till I let go. The visor and side of the helmet had scratch marks but no cracks. No damage to my head!
I like the retractable sun shade and removable visor as this allows it to fit in my saddle bag.
I dislike the big S logo and 'Storm trooper' appearance.

Just like previous consumer said. I often leave my other expensive helmets behind in the storage box and just take my Piaggio mp3 or Vespa gtv300 and this helmet for errands and to work. So it's pretty much daily basis. The only small complain is the wind comes in from below sun visor when cruising higher speed but in downtown riding just nice! I still keep my full face helmet for cold weather use or riding my Ninja 1000.

Scorpion EXO-100 half helmet is great!
Warning! Do not buy this helmet as a spare for emergencies only or because it is inexpensive, handy, comfortable, convenient, functional and carefree. You will soon be grabbing it first and leaving your other helmets at home, weather permitting. I have a very expensive modular helmet but the EXO-100 is just too handy for those quick spins around town or running errands. The retractable tinted eye shade is why I bought this half helmet. The sun visor is effective for those low angle sunlight conditions. Removable ear cushions are comfortable and help reduce wind noise. I would prefer no graphics but there isn't a choice. The EXO-100 has more features than other half helmets at over twice the price.

Love this helmet
This is a great helmet and not bad looking either. Best thing is when riding in the rain, you can pop the shield down to keep the rain out of your glasses. Also, there is no leaking into the helmet at the top of shield as in other helmets, because the shield comes out of the helmet and there's no place to leak. The straps and earphone pouches offer some noise protection for your ears (although I still use cotton on long trips). The ear phone pouches can be unzipped and removed to make for better air flow in the summer and left in to keep your ears warm in the winter. It's not nearly as heavy or restrictive as my 3/4 with full face shield. I tried one on in a MC shop on a trip this summer, so I knew my size when I ordered, it is a perfect fit. My only complaint is the visor catches too much wind and pushes the helmet back, but that's not really a problem because it simply unsnaps and can be removed. I think the helmet looks better without it any way. One other nice feature about the face shield is you can ride with your prescription glasses, be able to see your GPS, and still have some protection from the sun, and when not needed just pop it back up and put on your shades.
Cheers and happy riding!

Overall, it's a nice helmet. Comfort, features and fit is good. The only problem is that the helmet is huge. You can't tell by the photo, but when you take it out the box, it's the biggest helmet you've ever seen.
