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 shortRead more
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.Read more
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.Read more
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 helmetRead more
Great Helmet from Scorpion.
Fitting guide works well for this helmet. Snug, comfortable and acoustically good. Nice job ! Great customer focussed service from Sportsbikeshop as usual - Well done guys.Read more
Great Product, Great Service.
Used SportsBike a lot recently, such a good service. I have bought two of these helmets, one for me and one for my wife. Comfortable, well fitting and great value. My wife said that it is the best helmet she has ever had, and she has had many.Read more
Great value for money
This helmet is very comfortable and also very quiet which is great value for a helmet in this price range. Would not agree with other reviews saying go for a size up, I bought my normal size and it is what I would expect, snug fit as it is brand new, the padding will give a bit when it wears in. Snug but still comfortable.Read more
Fantastic helmet, comfy, well fitting and no problem with my glasses.Read more
I was looking for a new helmet and had checked out reviews etc for this one. Decided to go for it and am not disappointed. Very comfortable helmet. Would 100% recommendRead more
All round brilliant helmet. My glasses fit perfectly. Sun visor does not get stopped by my glasses when activated. Delivery has got to be the best I've ever received. It came in 2 days.Read more

Full face touring helmet with Pinlock ready MaxVision visor and internal sunvisor
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.See all Scorpion products…
