Review: Scorpion EXO 1000

I have had the EXO 700s for about 4 years now and needed to get some new helmets, one of them was the EXO 1000. It is the latest update from Scorpion and the higher end from the EXO-700. I got the Matt Black version as I like the Matt finish for the Scorpion Helmets from previous experience. Its a little bit different then the EXO-700s, a little better lining, better airflow, overall a great helmet.

Pros:

  • Comfortable
  • Good fit
  • Removable Lining
  • Reasonable price
  • Never Fogs up
  • Very Good Airflow & Ventilation
  • Very Good Matte Finish

Cons:

  • A bit on the noisy side
  • A bit heavy compared to the Arais and Shoei

Overall:

Scorpion have been upgrading their helmets over time and this time around they came up with the EXO-1000 at the same time I was looking to upgrade my four yearold Scorpion Helmet. The Scorpion EXO-1000 helmet is a great helmet to have if you can’t afford the expensive Arai’s and Shoeis. There is nothing missing from this helmet in terms of quality and features. It fits very well with a comfortable and removable liner, and I love that the Matt Black version with the tinted visor does look very stealthy. What I love about the helmet and I take for granted sometimes is that the screen never fogs up, when I wear my Arai helmet I forget that it fogs up until it happens. This is a great quality helmet with lots of features for its price, there is a bit of problem with a bit of noise at high speed and that its a bit heavy in comparison to the Arais and Shoeis. I wouldn’t get any helmet other then Scorpion in this price range, and if you are looking for a higher end helmet then I would go with the Arais and Shoies.

    Nice lid, I was also at TriStar & saw a big collection of atleast 5 top brands (Arai BMW Caberg Icon Momo etc ) with prices ranging from less than KD 50 to KD 600, , , , & 360 Dewan . . . In helmets you should look for the approved standards . . EU. Snell DoT
