Anonymity is overrated… especially on a motorcycle. Let’s be honest, we could ride to our destination in a variety of ways, but we prefer two wheels because it’s cool. It is unique. There is a style all its own about each of our individual motorcycles and, for the most part, we identify with this ride because it correlates to our own personal aesthetic. The new releases of Scorpion helmets work to augment this style and allow us to express outwardly what it is we feel like within.
First on the list is the new Scorpion EXO-900X Hi-Viz Helmet. Fashioned atop the noticeably redesigned 900X frame that is a lighter, more functional transformer helmet than its predecessor, the Hi-Viz option allows riders to be much more recognizable on the roadways. Easily worn as a full-face, open-face, or modular helmet, there are few circumstances that this lid won’t cater to. From the AirFit interior inflation system to the SpeedView retractable sun visor, the focus of the 900X has, and will continue to be, the comfort of riders through various circumstances… all in one option.
Another addition to the lineup is the new Scorpion EXO-T1200 Freeway Helmet. This brings a new paint scheme to the innovative T1200 option that has been a huge step forward for the Scorpion brand as a whole. As with the 900X, the EXO-T1200 utilizes the AirFit and SpeedView options to better accommodate the needs of the most ardent touring riders. With a plethora of features geared towards improving the experience for those of us who spend long hours in the saddle, the Freeway graphic also allows for the addition of a little visual vibrancy to the standard solid color choices.
Scorpion has not overlooked the female riders either as they have introduced the Scorpion Women’s EXO-C110 Split Helmet. Going for the top-quality, open-faced crowd, the EXO-C110 comes with more bells and whistles than most of its contemporaries. With a drop down sun visor, aero-tuned ventilation, and KwickWick 2 anti-microbial internal liner, this is a plush choice for riders who prefer not to be in a full-face option. With the Split graphic, the standard Black option is… well… split down the middle by a Pink stripe that adds a little bit of contrast and noticeability to the lid.
In total, the Scorpion lineup is a well-rounded set of gear that pays attention to a wide-ranging gamut of riders from every ilk. The newest graphics to a few of their most exciting helmets offers additional options to choose from as we move into the 2015 riding season.
Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…
Enjoy the ride,
