Scorpion Motorcycle Helmet Buying Guide

In this video, we detail the five models of motorcycle helmets produced by Scorpion. We've seen some great products come from Scorpion in the last few years and judging by the reviews on our site, fellow riders are loving Scorpion helmets as well. Check out the HD video below.

Let me dive in to what really jumps out at us about these five Scorpion helmets. I'll start with the universal features of each of the helmets:
  • SpeedShift system (except the modular EXO-900)- this quick-change shield system allows you to easily pop the shield on and off by turning a mechanism on each side of the helmet. No tools! It is one of the easiest shield-change systems we've seen.
  • EverClear faceshield- this shield is optically correct and utilizes a fog-free technology and anti-scratch coating. It's also one of the strongest shields we've seen, made of strong polycarbonate.
  • KwikWick liner- the cheek pads and helmet liner and made from a moisture-wicking material that pulls perspiration away from your face. These interiors breathe extremely well and are easy to remove and completely washable
  • With the exception of the EXO-400 which is a slightly round oval shape, every Scorpion helmet is an intermediate oval shape
