Scorpion Exo-510 Air Fantasy - Chameleon
Customer Product Reviews
Decent Entry Priced Lid
Very well featured helmet, the air curtain works but is a bit of a gimmick, don't let this feature sway you. The fit is snug for the size (L) but super comfy once bedded in. The visor is very good with decent seal and wind noise is restrained, particularly quiet in the sports bike riding position. The included pinlock insert is a real bonus. The ventilation works well and doesn't increase wind noise when opened. The inbuilt sun visor is nice quality, but the actuator is fiddly with a gloved hand, and difficult to find, hence 4 stars. Give one a try, you might be pleasantly surprised.
Great Value Helmet
Great fitting, comfortable helmet that can be made to extra snug courtesy of the air adjustment system. Fantastic value from Sportsbikeshop with it being on offer. Excellent ventilation and comes complete with pinlock screen to prevent misting. So far can't fault.
Amazingly priced eye-catcher
I've been riding with this helmet for the past 6 months and never experienced any issues with it. The first few rides it might seem a little snug, but the protective padding will take on the shape of your skull over time. As long as you follow the sizing guidelines as mentioned on the website, all will be well. The blue details match the royal blue of my Yamaha very well. I've seen the exo 510 helmet in several local shops at twice or triple the price. With the Sportsbikeshop you can never go wrong: top quality at very competitive prices. It also amazes me how fast they got it to my front door in mainland Europe. 2-3 days tops ... I recently ordered a suit, gloves and boots and they arrived just as fast. This place is a godsend for bikers!
Ticks the boxes
This helmet ticked the boxes I had - good price, pinlock, sun visor. Fits me well, quieter than my old shark lid. Decent quality lid for the price I paid. Slight misting despite pinlock so I'll have a tinker and see if I can get a better seal.
Scorpion Exo-510 Chameleon
This helmet is a must buy! I've had more expensive helmets but this one is the best of them all! The aesthetics are beautiful and I've had many compliments! The fit is wonderful! The breathability is outstanding! The visor, anti fog lens and sun visor are 10/10! Would definitely recommend and buy again! I can't even think of 1 thing bad to say
I love this helmet. I really needed to purchase a new helmet as my Caberg....which incidentally, is also a very fine helmet will not allow me to wear glasses. Initially, bought a large but had to exchange for the XL which fits perfectly. As per usual Sportsbike exchanged with no fuss ( it's a pity more companies don't adopt this attitude). As for the helmet....graphics are great, it's very quiet and comfortable. Overall excellent. Many thanks Sportsbike
Good value and features.
For people looking at helmets under £150 I'd say this is not a bad choice. It comes with a clear visor (not tinted) but it has the additional tinted flip-down visor - this can be adjusted to change how far down the screen comes (3 settings), but having used it a couple of times I think it would be good if it came down slightly further than it does. A "free" Pinlock visor was also included. The Airfit system allows you to pump air (using a small pump in the chin of the helmet) to inflate the cheek areas to maintain a good fit.....although I don't think most people will need it, as it's pretty tight already. I really like the chin strap - it's quick-release, but it also has a toothed insert, so you have some adjustment on the fit without having to mess about with the actual strap. There are 4 vents on this helmet, so probably good for sunny days. Personally I don't think it needs so many, and the main 1 on the top whistles slightly over 50mph, which is a little annoying - I will probably try to block it. The fit is pretty good in general, but I do find that the padding isn't great in the middle of where it sits on your forehead, so it gets uncomfortable after about an hour. It isn't the quietest helmet in the world - it seems to allow a lot of wind to blow up under the chin guard and into your eyes and there is obviously some wind noise generated by this - I guess this depends on what bike you ride though (Z1000). I do wear earplugs too. For value and accessories I'd give this helmet 5 stars and for comfort and design I'd give 3 stars - so an overall rating of 4 stars.
Really nice helmet, fits great and the vents on the top work well. Helmet comes with the pinlock system that again works great. Build quality looks to be top notch and with a 5 year warranty they are standing by it lasting. A friend is getting one after looking at the one I bought he liked it that much.
Excellent product and service
Love this helmet! Comfortable, quiet and well made. The air pump is great to just tighten it up if needed. Internal sun visor is a must. Vents plentiful and easy to operate in gloves. Chin strap is ratchet, so likewise. I've stuck a sena intercom in and the place for the speakers is perfect. Had to buy both the small and medium before deciding medium was for me. That was 2 sizes bigger than my previous Schubert c3 but that was always a bit tight. Would recommend a size bigger than normal. Fantastic service from Sportsbike as usual. Returned the one I didn't want no hassle. You won't get a better price or service anywhere else.
Best helmet I've ever had ..!!
I've been riding bikes since I was 16, after 33 years I've finally found a top class bike helmet that doesn't need a 2nd mortgage to buy it. Very comfortable and really nice fit really keeps the noise out better than any I've had. The delivery service was great, I won't hesitate to use Sportsbike Shop for my next bit of bike kit. Thanks for a great service.
I just love this helmet I spent months trying to find the right helmet that is comfortable and better for glasses i just love the air fit feature what a brilliant option to add in the helmet. so nice to wear on long journeys and has the added bonus of sun visor which is so helpful for those who wear glasses. The graphics on the helmet is just superb so much detail that I just love. easy strap to fasten helmet. overall I can not fault this helmet I just love all the features and the graphics are stunning. A+++++ highly recommend
I had an MT Revenge previously and this helmet, in comparison, is 100x better... It's more confortable, less noise, fogs even less (both have the Pinlock insert in), has the sun visor and looks and feels like a product with way more quality, in general.
Excellant medium class helmet
Whist it isnt the cheapest it cerainly wont break the bank. Great features for a helmet of its class. The only cons woudl be the same other reviewers have stated; its extrmely snug (I had to send one back even though id already ordered one size up and compared with other brands I tried it is just this helmet, I dont have a fat head ha) and it comes with a clear visor as standard, despite the tinted one pictured. Pros; great ventilation, quiet and looks awesome, airfit pump ensures it fits tightly and doesnt move around, and the pinlock insert is included. Overall I'm very happy with this helmet, 5 stars for its class.
Really nice helmet but tight
The overall quality of the helmet is great. Really cool vents and never seen a visor lock before, but cool. Only problem I've found is it is sometimes uncomfortably tight, which I bought the correct size, same as my MT helmet, so it could be worth going a size up. Apart from that, great lid and I highly recommend it.
