Well I finally got a chance to take the new lid out for a spin to see how it does. It does GREAT! Now granted, I only have about 150 miles with it...but that's a start. It's a Scorpion EXO-700 Fury.(See Here!)The only helmets I have to compare it to are HJCs and KBCs...so keep that in mind.

The helmet has vents out the wazoo 6 total I believe. I was adjusting them during the ride and I will say that they definitely work...they're not just there for looks. They're easy to manipulate with gloved hands...and you'll know by airflow if they are open or closed.

No fog visor? I tried really hard to get this visor to fog up and had absolutely no luck. I was riding in about 65 degree weather...I would try exhaling as hard as I could while not moving to get the visor to fog up and it just wasn't happening. Very impressed as my HJC and KBC fogged up rather quickly.

Quiet? I honestly don't know how or if they coould make a helmet quieter than this one is. The quietest helmet I've ever worn...hell it's just quiet period. I just don't know how else to say it...this helmet is extremely quiet! I rode at town speeds on up to 120+.

Comfort? As I stated before...The longest I have had it on is about a solid hour and a half...it was very comfortable and no hot spots developed at all. It's very aerodynamic..did not experience any buffeting.

I can tell you that based on my experience so far...I will own and wear one of these helmets as long as I am riding and I would wholeheartedly recommend that everyone try this helmet out if the get a chance.

Hope this helps!

I have been interested in the Scorpion line of helmets, just haven't found any around here at a shop to check out. Hey Gas Man or Mudpuppy or other WOS, you guys seen Scorpions on sale anywhere in the area? I know Rec doesn't.... I refuse to buy a helmet w/o being able to try it on first with my big ol noggin..

Nope, I haven't. Next time I get a chance I'll stop in at Rocky's Great Outdoors in Burton. They have a desent selection. Nothing compared to Rec's but not bad.

Thanks for the info. If anything else, maybe they will have them at the Cycle World bike show this winter.


Edit: Checked out the web page, says Rocky's does carry them, as well as some place in Hazel Park.

Nope. I didn't see any. I'm sure they can order one but it would be nice if they had just a few of them in there.

Road trip...did you say road trip. I'm ready. Any reason to ride is a good reason to me. Let me ask real quick if I am going to have place to sleep when I get home. :lol:

How easy did you find it to change the shield?
I didn't think it was easy at all. One side would come off...but the other was kind of a b#$ch. I could change visors on my other helmets easier than this one. Fortunately, I don't change my visors often so it's a non-issue.

See my review (sticky) in here. I had the same thing happen, but with a little finesse it came free. :D It took me a long time to master my Shoei so I'll give it time with this one.

Thanks for the feedback.

My :2cents:
I think it's just a matter of technich. I've found if I turn my helmet so it is facing away from me, then it's a two step process.
1: turn the knobs
2: with my thumbs at the top of the visor and my ring & middle finger on the bottom of the visor, I press down with my thumbs and pull away with my bottom fingers the visor comes right off.
Practice this a few times and I think you may change your oppinion about changing the visor.

Welcome to the site work2ride2much. I think you're right, in fact I mentioned so in my article. I don't have occasion to change the visor frequently enough to use the mechanism. I'm sure I'll get it down.
