I DO trust Scorpion helmets, they were one of the helmets in motorcyclists famous snell busting test. lotsa mud got thrown, writers got canned, but Snell foundation revised seriously their helmets afterwords.
I'm very tempted. Anyone know how they fit? I'm usually an XL in HJC
Scorpion Helmets are becoming my new favorite for many reasons. Price and quality being my main concern, I recommend trying one on for size. While wind noise is still present, it is much better than the Shoei and feels the same while riding. It is slightly heavier but who cares because the last thing your thinking about while riding is how heavy your helmet feels on your head.
And with the over $300 in savings you can buy more cool upgrades for the bike. This company proves it does not take the type of money to produce a quality helmet that the other companies are so proud of when they take your $500+ and then program in your mind that you have to spend more $$ to be safe.
