Scorpion Exo-1400 Air Carbon - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Bought this to replace a shoei ryd, which on my tiger 1050 was horrendously noisy. Pleased to report the scorpion is a fair bit quieter. The drop down visor is great, coated with anti-fog magic, doesn't mist up at all, even with the main visor closed. Comes with a free dark visor and a pinlock insert, both awesome. Easily the best helmet I've had in over 20 years riding, that includes arai,s. Highly recommend. Sportsbikeshop as usual, faultless next day delivery. Top marks
I usually . And always have used Arai , but liked the look of this helmet , was at a great price and the ratings were good which is always where I look first ! Have worn the helmet a few times now , first use front of my forehead pushing a little against padding , this settled down and became comfortable after third ride , the helmet is fitted with sun visor , plus comes with dark main visor so I removed the sun visor which is easy to replace , , the inflatable check pads are a nice addition but is a good fit anyway so haven't need to pump up , but maybe this will be of more benefit when check pads wear in more ? The venting is ok , have given it 4 stars instead of 5 due to the view you get from the helmet when wearing , I tend to lean into corners with my upper body so end up looking the top section of helmet visor , the curve of the shell is at its lowest point right in your eyeline sometimes when leant over looking ahead , or maybe I'm just used to arias which gives you a better view in my opinion so all in all a good value helmet with good features , looks good and is light to wear , Good value for money
Great helmet, took a couple of hours to feel comfortable. It's light. The ventilation is good, especially when using the lower vent. Looks great, is comfortable, have installed Cardo Freecom 4 - fits and sits perfectly without any Velcro pads. The drop-down sun-visor seems to not be perfect (in terms of distortion) but is very handy when there's direct sunlight.
Firstly it goes without saying that this helmet is super light considering its loaded with features.I found it comfortable even after wearing it a full day and it's not too noisy. I would say the fit is intermediate oval. I have a Scorpion flip-up which is overly tight round my cheeks but this is one is spot on. The helmet looks amazing as well. Overall, excellent value for money and as always SBS service was tops.
Light, comfortable and great value
Straight out of the box and it looks phenomenal. Super light weight and a great fit. Some people don't use the air bladder but I do as it creates a better fit for my head and reduces noise. I have switched from HJC and this is better in all respects. The tinted visor is a bonus and can be fitted very easily.
What a Bargain!
I have just returned to Motorcycling after an 8 year hiatus. I had previously had Arai and Xlite helmets, but then there wasn't as much choice as there is now. The Scorpion caught my due to it being carbon fibre and consequently very light. The style suits my bike (Triumph Speed Twin), at the time of purchase this helmet had a special price and included a Pin lock and free Dark visor. It also incudes a flip down visor, emergency removal of cheek pads and uniquely (as far as i'm aware) it has an inflatable, section that makes the fit of the helmet spot on, the chin curtain keeps wind noise to a minimum and it has cut-outs for speakers for intercoms etc. I would recommend this helmet to anyone. And I have to add the Sportsbikeshop team have been awesome, I ordered a lot of stuff from them and simply sent back what I didn't like or what didn't fit and received a full refund. This last point is particularly important during these difficult times.
Brilliant Helmet - superb quality
Don't be put off by the price - under £300 for a full carbon helmet sounds too good to be true. This is a brilliant helmet, great fit, quiet, excellent aero, Comfort of a Shark, quietness of a Schuberth, better in every way than any HJC I have owned!
A bit noisy
Helmet is a bit noisier than expected after reading other reviews but maybe I am expecting too much, maybe it's time to invest in some ear protection as well. The best thing is the weight, only used it for my commute so far and noticed the difference straight away compared to my old helmet but expect it to be a big difference on a fun ride out. First time using Sports bike shop but it won't be the last, very impressed by the rapid delivery, especially in these times.
Quality without breaking the bank.
I wanted a quality helmet at a reasonable price and this certainly ticks all the boxes. I read through the reviews noting fit, noise, weight, comfort, cost etc and decided to give it a go. Everything was as described, I did go up a size which worked for me, build quality and finish is of a very high standard and of course it looks great! Very pleased and would recommend ????
OMG - heavenly.
I ordered online, basing the size and fit on my previous Scorpion Exo500. Out of the box it's a great looking helmet from any angle, extremely soft, plush lining that makes the fit spot on - love the double-d ring fastening too, much prefer to the the clips (my beard gets caught). Visors (yes you get clear and smoked - and a cool blue one if you add it to your order) lol)are clear and work well with the pin lock. I found a bit fiddly to change them over - but it's simple enough. Picking it up, it's so light and this shows on the bike too. It's well streamlined even at speed (ZZR1400 :)) and not too noisy. The vents let a good amount of air in and the drop down sunny visor works a treat. If I had the money I'd buy another one today! Great service from SBS as always.
Light and Quiet
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this helmet. The visor is lock works really well, the fabric is extremely high quality and it seems very well made. Having come from a Schuberth S2 I was expecting this helmet to be a bit noiser, given that Schuberth helmets are known for their quietness. However, maybe in part due to the fact my old helmet was 3 years old, the Scorpion was actually quieter, the air-pump only improves this further. The helmet was noticeably lighter too. I think the Schuberth was around 250g heavier, which doesn't sound like a lot, but that extra weight saving makes a huge difference on the bike. The only thing wrong with it is entirely my own doing, i was showing it off around the house and scratched the top of it going through a door frame. Bonus points for the additional dark visor, pinlock insert and nice fitting helmet bag.
