Scorpion Exo-1400 Air Carbon - Black
Customer Product Reviews
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!
First class bit of kit.
I ordered a Scorpion Exo 1400 air carbon pure yellow from SBS and received it five days later in Southern Spain, post free. What a service from SBS. The helmet fits perfectly and is extremely comfy to wear. The wide view visor is excellent and the air pump system really does help keep noise down. The double D fastening strap is very comfy to use and the light weight of the helmet together with the aerodynamic shape help make it the most comfy helmet I have owned. The helmet came with clear and smoked visors together with pinlock antimist and internal dark sun visor. Air venting is good with no misting and no overheating internally. The internal sun visor was damaged when I received the helmet, but I Was Immediatelly sent a replacement from SBS. All in all I am extremely happy to recommend the Scorpion Exo 1400 air carbon and buying from SBS.
Everything you need in a helmet for the road
Super light (1200gms) carbon helmet with a great finish that's extremely comfy and so much quieter than my past Shoei's. Integral sun visor is optically clear and just the right tint, it actually improves contrast. Perfect fit, no pressure points and I can get my specs on. Supplied with a clear & dark visor, pinlock and a quality bag. Ventilation seems adequate.
1st Scorpion helmet.
I have had several full face helmets of different brands most recent being AGV K5 and HJC FG-ST, my size in the Hjc is M58 so ordered the M57-58 Scorpion and it fits like a glove, sizing is true for me and its so light, the visor mechanism works great and the inflatable bladder pumps and deflates perfectly, the chin strap feels more comfortable than the Hjc too, it came with a clear visor fitted and also came with a tinted spare and pinlock in the box, the helmet bag is better than any other too but that just gets left in the draw, oh and the internal tinted visor works great too, i cant recommend this helmet enough, just get one and see, Thanks Sportsbikeshop.
