Scorpion Exo-1400 Air Carbon - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Best I've had
Very good stability at high speed. No wind roar from beneath helmet, the pump seals any gaps left. obviously no helmet is silent. But this is quieter then my shark carbon R. Fit is perfect for my head. Oval shape. Free black visor. Carry bag is good. And look the helmet quality good. From this helmet I would defo buy another scorpion helmet.
Service!! Product!! review
Not many companies can be as good as Sportsbikeshop.co.uk they really are up there with the best. Easy ordering, delivery next day (even a Saturday), return and replace is superb. The Product - is a shiny carbon lid, lightweight and comfortable. Loads of room around the ears, nothing touches them when wearing. The air pump I thought was a gimmick when I was reading but Wow, it truly works reduces wind noise and prevents lifting. the visor mechanics seem strong when manually moving the position of the visor but on the move it shuts. in this weather its super hot and the visor up is a must so this is annoying for 2 days a year. the sun visor is good, but I would like it a little longer so it drops near to your nose, I am only comparing this to my Shark flip top which is fantastic for sun visor only riding. The padding is comfortable, noise protection is good and the chin straps are comfy too. I bought a medium and its spot on for my 57cm head. Overall this product is a win and I'm happy I have it.
I have owned many premium makes and types of helmet and this helmet is right up there with the best but a lot less money. The fit is spot on and very comfortable even without using the pump. The aerodynamics are great with no buffeting or neck strain. The air flow in to the helmet is as good as any other full face helmet I have used. And the icing on the cake is the weight, it really is a featherweight and you hardly know it's on your head. The visor and sun visor work great with no issues (although it takes a bit of effort to open from fully closed) A great helmet at a superb price. I highly recommend the Scorpion Exo-1400 Carbon
Really impressed, great value
This is a really light Carbon Fibre helmet, it is really comfortable and feels good to wear. Impressed with how easy it was to install my Sena intercom, it even has recesses for the earpieces and microphone! Also really impressed it came with both a clear and dark visor (though only one pinlock). Comes with a padded bag for the helmet and a bag for the spare visor.
After using more expensive helmets for years I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and fit of this helmet. It quiet enough, in fact I can hear more useful things wearing this without excessive wind noise. Also, it's insanely light and the visor aperture is huge so visibility is good.. I'm also using this with an Interphone Active intercom that fits inside the lid really well. The inflating cheekpads are a good idea but I don't really need them at the moment, it will be interesting to see how the padding of the cheekpads wear and if I use the pump more after a few months or years.
Lightweight, quiet and comfortable
I bought this as my daily commuter helmet as the wind noise from my flip face Shark was too much if I forgot earplugs. The helmet is lightweight to the point that you'd barely notice it and it's quiet to the point that I'd compare it to my old Arai RX7. It's a snug fit but doesn't pinch. I haven't had to use the internal pump which seems a bit gimmicky but then if I had a slightly smaller head I might be calling it the greatest invention since sliced bread. Overall I'd say it's an excellent helmet and definitely feels more premium than it's midrange price suggests.
Good: - super light - excellent quality - excellent fit - safety visor lock - Lots of air coming in from everywhere - Dark visor included! - Sun visor included - pinlock insert inculded - straight line push switch for the sun visor! - air pump to adjust fit (will be very useful once the helmet loosens) - A quality helmet like this adds so much confidence and comfort to the ride that it worth the investment Bad: (use of balaclava would solve these issues and ear plug/headphone) - rain gets to my neck - air goes right in the ear canal, you can get used to it over time, it is not something you can turn off - not for cold/wet weather in my opinion.
AMAZING HELMET!!!! Lightest one I've ever had
Was really surprised to how light this helmet is, probably the lightest on the market and so comfortable, love the pump chin guards make it much more tighter, overall the carbon helmet is finished to high standard very comfortable to wear would definitely recommend anyone to buy this helmet, and the plus side sportsbikeshop matched an ebay one I found and saved £50 thank you sportsbikeshop amazing service I've recommended you guys to all the guys in my bike group!!!
A fun technical helmet
I'd previously owned an Exo-510 which I already considered a very good helmet. Going for Shark was a disappointing experience. With the Exo-1400, Scorpion really built a great, comfortable & light helmet. The lining is very soft and the air pump system insures a very snug fit. The inner sun shield is a great addition. It looks damn good!
Proper bit of kit!
First things first. Fit is accurate...... measure your bonce and order the one that matches. Padding is very good, and the Reebok pump style inflation cheek pads is a nice touch. (Kids not from the 80s or 90s, ask a grown up what Reebok Pump is!) I'd prefer a ratchet buckle, but the double D is about the easiest one to secure that I've ever owned, can just about do it up with gloves on. Build quality is outstanding, vents are easy enough to find and operate as is the sun visor. Pretty quiet, though whistles a smidge when vents open. But you really don't care about all that...... this lid looks unreal! In the flesh its even cooler, the carbon is lush, with the dark visor (included by the way!) It looks even more awesome. And soooooo light (1.2kg) you'll forget you're wearing it. Can't recommend highly enough for this price range. SBS were brilliant as always. Very quick to deliver, and always good to know they've got you covered if necessary. 10/10.
Honestly, Life changing
If you're humming and arring about this lid (which for the price.. we all do) do it If its your first experience with carbon fibre helmets it will blow you away. firstly its SO light you don't feel it on your head, very little buffeting from the wind either and the view out of the visor is second to non ok.. there are some down sides (ish) the latch for the visor takes some getting used to and its very stiff, which is the point but when you try to just crack the visor after that blast on your favourite road its a bit of a pain and the air pump system.. very good idea but you'll never use it as the helmet is such a good fit anyway. but I have found the times I have used it (again, when you're heading for your favourite tarmac) it throws my routine off, most times forgetting to do up the strap, but that's just me. TL;DR if your looking for that proper high quality lid for those summer ride outs - buy this
Scorpion Exo-1400 Air Carbon
This product is absolutely amazing! Looks great and it's very light compering with other helmets. Sizing was perfect had no problems at all. Another great thing is that there is a free space left for the speakers inside the helmet, up to 14mm and works perfectly with SENA products. Very happy with the purchase! Top quality product!
