So impressed with this light and quiet helmet.
Always had Arais, never again, so over priced.
I was very impressed with service from the staff at sports bike shop as well.
Ordered online next day delivery great price can't go wrong
This is my first Scorpion helmet, Always had the top Shoei and HJC's, This Exo Air R1 is mega comfy, Quality is first class, Very quiet, My favourite helmet to date.
Now as for Sportsbikeshop, What can I say other than keep up the great work guys 5*
Picked up a new Crash Helmet, The Scorpion Exo Ri . Absolutely fantastic, Light weight fantastic fit and a great service from the guys at Sportsbikeshop as always, they can't do enough for you . Well pleased. Going over again in the next few days for some Rental fat bars.
Arrived next day, very happy with
the service from SBS. The helmet itself is very light, including drop down sun visor and pinlock the XL only weighs around 1300g cant ask for more really.
Very comfortable helmet, at the moment I only use Scorpion helmets on road and track.
There is more wind noise in the carbon helmet compared to the composite models.
All in a fantastic helmet at this price point
Recently taken the plunge buying this helmet after a recommendation from a mate. I've moved from a Shoei X-Spirit ll and this helmet is streets ahead in both comfort and quietness. I am super happy with it.
Decided to go with a racing helmet for the unrestricted view on a supersport bike, and the view from this is excellent. Perfect fit, light and comfy, feels like part of my head when riding rather than a helmet. wind slips over it even when turning head to side. Very impressed.
My first brand new helmet, staff was excellent, very helpful, helmet is great quality not as quiet as my old Shoei but it's comfortable, looks the part and is very light, many thanks sportsbikeshop for all your help
Great fitting helmet, snug but comfortable. Comes with a dark tint visor plus pinlock and a useful fabric visor case for the spare. Not to bad noise wise at motorway speeds. Plenty of ventilation. Only gripe, the visor is a bit tricky to fit, but stays put once fitted.
Tl;Dr - SBS is the best for customer service. For the money I don't think you can get a better helmet.
First off I can't stress enough how awesome the customer support team at SBS is! Dpd had a few problems finding my door and once I finally got the helmet it was too small so back it went and decided on another lid as there wasn't any of the original I had ordered left in a large. With me 100% of the way even as the dpd delivery points failed me, thanks again guys.
The helmet itself? The lightest thing I've ever felt safe putting on my head on a bike, feels sold and amazingly well built. The airfit makes up for the too small medium and the large being not as snug as I'd normally like. No drop down sun visor is a pain but let's face it, this is a race helmet.
Would I love this helmet as much if it were an agv or arai carbon at a couple extra hundred? Probably not because I ain't rich enough for that yet.
At this price if your wanting a carbon lid I'd say this exo R1 or the exo 1400.
Having recently got my first sporty bike I decided to try scorpion. The first thing that amazed me is how they have made this thing so light. It's a feat of engineering. I have found it quiet as well and my Sena fits well. The speaker pockets are really deep so it takes my thick HD Sena speakers and they sit flush in the holes. It's also very comfortable and feels way more premium than its cost. As you get a free dark visor you can essentially deduct £50 off the price straight away as this is what you normally get stung for when having to get a second visor. I am very happy with my purchase. Only negative is that you get two visors and one pinlock, and I can't seem to find where to buy another one from. But make no mistake this is a fantastic value helmet.
Quality build and super light on the head. Shame it doesn't have quick release buckle, but didn't notice it after a while. It is quiet on the road thanks to their new neck cover located at the bottom of the helmet. However makes attaching speakers etc a bit difficult. Overall a great helmet and quality service from Sportsbikeshop as always.
Great service in the shop. The helmet is extremely light, looks great, and fits really nicely. I ordered it to try in store as they'd not got the black/white in, and by the time it arrived it had dropped in price so i was even more pleased. This helmet is easily as good as an Aria which it was replacing.
Measured head and needed large,when helmet arrived it was to tight so sent back and within two days had extra large on doorstep.Brilliant service by SBS as usual. Pleased with helmet looks awesome and comfortable, still quite noisy with wind noise but will put up with that. Recommend
After wearing shoei for 20 they exo R1 court my eye so I've given it a go and all I can say is brilliant worth every penny
Lighter than my previous gp air at 200grams makes a huge difference. Great feel out the box nice and snug. Happy with the purchase and will be using sportsbikeshop again.
Lovely looking crash helmet, fits well looks amazing. Really light.
Always had Shoei NXRs but thought I'd give this a go. Really impressed. Very light and very well put together. Looks amazing too. Service from sportsbikeshop fantastic as always - ordered at 3pm on a Friday and it arrived the next morning.

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.
