Scorpion Exo-1400 Air Carbon - Black
Customer Product Reviews
This helmet exceeded all of my expectations. It was comfortable right out of the box with no hot spots found on my first ride. The degree of vision is better than many helmets I have owned. The tight fit around the jawline achieved with the air system kept the majority of noise out at even motorway speeds. It was comfortable without ear plugs. The lightweight and aerodynamics made it feel like the helmet wasn't there and didn't move around on my head nor did it push my head backwards with higher speeds. The bare carbon is beautiful and is just a bonus to the great performance of the helmet. I would highly recommend this helmet and will purchase another from Scorpion in the future.
More than happy
An upgrade from a budget Frank Thomas; I've had this only two weeks and friends have commented on its' lightness. Personally what's in the box pleased me specifically the Pinlock, my first one. After a year or so of fog (I ride all weathers on my commute everyday) I can really say this is a great solution. The helmet I read to size up but didn't which I regret now, although I'm hoping the helmet will bed-in/settle, as such I have no use for the air pump as it make me look like a hamster with my already fat cheeks. It's snug, quiet and overall very comfortable. My only critique which maybe my head shape(?) is that it feels to sit a bit forward on my brow so that the peak/top of the opening is in my field of vision. The D-Rings which I tend to find annoying are real easy to use compared to others and the visor centre lock/opening is a welcome idea. I hate the left handed openings. Overall I'm very pleased with my purchase and all of the reviews I read were bang on.. I should of listened and sized up I think, but hey-ho!
Good helmet and very light
As mentioned by other reviewers, this is insanely light. Fit is excellent, especially with the Airfit system, makes sure it is a good close fit. Haven't noticed it any more noisy than my old Shark or Shoei helmets, though haven't done any real high speed riding with it yet. Compared to my previous helmets, it does go out further forward but that I guess is more down to design and most definitely not a criticism. Visor has the tab to raise it very central and it is nice and easy to lift when you are riding. Bottom line, I really like this helmet and am really pleased with it. And once again the usual superb service from SportsBikeShop!
Great helmet, great buy
Excellent helmet in terms of quality for price. Good design, very lightweight, extra visor is a plus, nice airfit system and carry bag for both helmet and extra visor. Could be a bit more silent at higher speeds, but still good enough.
Best helmet I have ever had
came from a Nexx XR2 and a AGV K5 and this helmet is soo mutch better.... Less noise and the materials that they use we only find in helmets above 600$ ! Recomend 100% and sportsbikeshop its the best online shop for motorcycles
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.
