Great quality

Excellent helmet for the money. It's my first one and I've used it for a few weeks now on a 125cc. No problems and comfortable. For me is true to size.

Great helmet

Good quality for the price, it's a bit tight but that should ease with use.

Perfect fit

My first new helmet in years thought I would try it I found it to be a perfect fit really comfortable no misting no fog in. And most of all looks really amazing. I write this product excellent.

Excellent helmet for the price

Despite this being on the cheaper side of the helmet spectrum this is solid and feels good quality. It looks amazing in matt black and the visor and sun visor work really well. Being able to lock the visor slightly open is a nice touch. Handy to have multiple vents built in as well.

Great helmet

This is a great helmet with only 1 negative point that i can think of Positives Looks great Comfotable Breathable Many features Vision is hardly restricted Safe and will protect you in a crash (i know from experience) Light Visor mechanism works very well Negative Order a size larger than what you are as they come up short

Scorpion Exo 490

Nice helmet, decent quality. The visor catch is a little fiddly to work with gloves on. Not the quietest lid I have had either but not too bad. Whistles a little at times. It's comfortable and sized correctly. The ratchet strap is a nice length and adjustable for a comfortable fit. Good service from Sportsbikeshop as always.

Couldn't be better

It's an all round great helmet, not too much wind noise, comfortable and also lighter than some budget helmets. Brilliant service as it arrived within 2 days which is impressive for the Scottish Highlands and a whole week earlier than the predicted date.

Good fit

Helmet fits great, good quality, the visor is nice, and the sun visor. It fogs up quite a bit, and the mouth deflector thing doesn't really work and is coming off already but all in all a good helmet

Product Specification Variants Visors Pinlock Insert


Scorpion Exo is a relatively new addition to the plethora of motorcycle helmet brands available in Europe but they have most certainly hit the ground running. From their European base in Strasbourg, France, Scorpion have developed some of the most technical elements found on motorcycle helmets today, that have since become commonplace on the feature lists of the biggest brand names. A form of Scorpion's own Airfit pump system can now be found on models of both Shark and HJC helmets but it was Scorpion Exo who pioneered the technology, along with other innovations such as their Kwikwick liner system. The Scorpion helmet range, whilst focusing on technological advancements, also focuses on the more core expectations of today's biking fraternity, style, quality and fit. To that end, they've hired some of the most famous names in motorcycle helmet design and are able to control their entire production process, by manufacturing all elements of the helmet themselves, in their own production facilities. Scorpion say that their philosophy behind every single helmet they produce can be summarized in five words: protection, aesthetics, dynamism, comfort and innovation. We say, that over the next few years, Scorpion helmets will continue to grow in popularity throughout Europe and will undoubtedly take their place alongside the other major brands of motorcycle helmet.
