Scorpion EXO-R2000 Helmet - Solid Colors The EXO R2000 is Scorpion's flagship performance race helmet. Built with exclusive TCT composite shell construction, the lightweight EXO-2000 was developed by Scorpion engineers with input from MotoGP riders and tested on the track as well as in the lab. Scorpion's exclusive Ellip-Tec ratchet technology ensures a tight seal around the shield while the advanced aero-tuned ventilation system produces generous airflow and circulation throughout the helmet. The aerodynamically designed tear-drop shell shape minimizes buffeting at high speeds and the AirFit cheekpad system ensures a custom snug fit. The Scorpion EXO-R2000 comes equipped with Emergency Release cheek pads, a standard EverClear shield PLUS a bonus Dark Smoke EverClear shield. Pinlock MaxVision- ready flat shields with tearoff posts are available as an accessory for the track (sold separately). Scorpion's DNA is infused into every facet of the EXO-R2000 and the result is a new benchmark for quality and value in a premium helmet. Features TCT Composite Shell - Developed exclusively by Scorpion and consisting of a proprietary 5 layer blend of fiberglass, Aramid and organic poly-resin fibers AirFit- Permits a rider to personalize helmet fit through air adjustable cheek pads EverClear no-fog faceshield - Optically-correct shield with state-of-the art fog-free technology and anti-scratch hardened coating KwikWick II - Moisture-wicking helmet liner and cheek pads are breathable, easily removable and washable KwickFit - Cheekpads accommodate easy on and off for most common styles of eye glasses Elip-Tec Ratchet System - Easy, secure, tool-less faceshield changes in seconds. Also pulls the faceshield against the eyeport gasket when closed to ensure a proper seal Emergency Release System - Tabs located under the neck roll allow easy removal of the cheekpads in case of emergency Six intake air ports across the front of the helmet force cool air in while 10 exhaust vents maximize exhaust of hot air Titanium Double D-rings Includes Aero Skirt for increased aerodynamics and reduced wind noise 5 year warranty 4 shell sizes Snell 2010 Certified Note Includes both clear and dark smoke faceshields.

I love this helmet. When I first got it and rode with all the vents open it was pretty loud. When you slightly tuck or ride a little less than full upright it is surprisingly quiet.
After taking it on a 1500 mile trip I am very happy with this helmet. Nice weight , the main reason I bought this in addition to the price . I have had more than one neck injury so weight is a factor. As it breaks in and I figure out what the best combination of vents are , the noise is much more manageable. I ride behind a windshield almost all of the time.
The features I like the most: The air-fit system for the cheek pads. I use this a lot. At higher speeds it really helps quiet down the helmet and to keep it rock steady on my head. No buffeting when I head check at all. The weight of the helmet. Comfort . The more I wear it the more I love it.
I was really pleased with the quality of this helmet. Some of the scorpion helmets I have looked at were kind of junky but not this one. The EXO-R2000 is a top notch helmet. I like the way it is set up. Lots of cool features that you actually enjoy using. I know it is a race helmet but I toured on a trike with it and loved it. I have had Arai, Shoei, HJC, Nexx, and a couple of others. I think this is one of the best helmets I have ever had. I hope when I go to purchase another helmet in a few years these are still around. One more thing , the visor seals up tightly and does not leak water in the rain. The anti-fog works reasonably well. I wear glasses under the helmet so the glasses fog up more than the shield does. When going under freeway speeds I use the shield lock mechanism and raise the shield for city venting, anti fog and cooling off.
All in all very happy with this helmet. Best helmet bag I have ever seen free with helmet. Dark visor with visor bag included with helmet. Well done Scorpion . Value , and an awesome helmet on one deal.
Revzilla rocks as always. Got the helmet to me intact and undamaged in two days for very reasonable rates. So I could have it to go on my trip with.

I wanted more protection than just regular jeans but not the heat holding properties of kevlar pants for hot weather riding. I am happy with these pants. I would like to see some knee armor and more protection around the butt area not just the hips. For what these pants are they are a good value and very comfortable. I had to roll the ends up about an inch as they were catching on my mid controls but after rolling them they fit perfect. They have just enough elastic and give in the waist for comfort. I wear a 35 inch waist in Levi's and the 34's fit perfect. So they do run about 1 waist size big. Great pants for all day riding.

i really like the nexx xr1r helmet. the pinlock helmet works but the pinlock insert does not go all the way to the top of the helmet . it leaves a weird gap of about an inch at the top. the insert works but you will find yourself going cross eyed at the gap in the pinlock and the top of the shield. it does help reduce fogging but I am not sure i will get used to the gap. I am going to try putting some dark tape over the space and see how that goes. if that does not work then I would consider not using it and just using some anti fog spray on the inside of the shield.

Really like this helmet . was thinking of exchanging it for a Lazer Carbon fiber until I received it. I wear a 57 cm helmet. (Small M) . The helmet fits perfect. Haven't needed to use any of the pads included to fit the helmet as it is perfect for me as is. I also have an Arai Vector which I like but its getting too heavy for me as I age. Also in a strong head wind it pushes hard against my chin. The NEXX helmet stays put and does not move at all. I wear wiley x perscription sunglasses and they fit nicely inside the helmet with no worries. I would give this helmet 5 stars easily even with only a 2 year warranty (not 5) and for a slightly loose upper right top vent switch that is not as tight when you move it as I would like. Overall I love this helmet. Got the pinlock insert for it and no worries with fogging until about 38 degrees.. even then its not bad at all . Glad I found this helmet and I am very happy with it. Helmet and insert got here very fast after ordering .. very impressed with the shipping time and service from revzilla.com.

This is a great 3 season jacket . I bought it after trying on a friends ballistic 7.0. I already have 2 summer jackets and I love both of them ( Icon Motorhead jacket and Scorpion Hat Trick). I needed something for colder weather and this jacket fits that bill perfectly. I have not had a chance to wear it in the pouring rain yet but I have no doubt that it will be nice and warm in nasty weather. With the liners in its very warm. I bought an XL so I could fit an electric liner under it if needed. I probably could have bought a L and been just fine but since there are many size adjustment straps on this the XL is fine . I think it is too hot to wear in high summer but for winter , spring and fall this is a top notch jacket and the fit is very comfortable.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Best jacket I have ever owned . Warm on cold days , room for electric vest if needed. With all liners in fits perfect. Waist adjustment for wearing jacket with out liners. Heavy duty stitching , love the subtle graphics and skull on sleeve,. Looking forward to using this jacket on a 3000 mile trip this summer. I hope scorpion sells this jacket for many years to come so I can get another one when this one wears out. I am very pleased with this product. 5 stars rated.
Got it in 3 days from revzilla. shipped promptly , received in excellent condition from fed ex. Top notch service. will use revzilla again!! thanks everyone. Great jacket .. All I hoped it would be and then some. Size Large fits my 5 foot 9 1/2 inch body perfect. 180 pounds. Excellent fit .
Yes, I recommend this product.

great shield. Really like the dark smoke , its about as dark as a pair of Ray Bans . Blocks the sun but you can still see safely till dusk. Dont really need the brow venting these shields have . My arai helmet flows a ton of air without them.
