I've owned a lot of Helmets and a lot of Scorpion helmets (EXO-700. 400, 500). As mentioned in the video, the fit is a lot different than previous helmets from Scorpion, fairly similar actually to my old Shoei RF-1000. Since my last touring/commuting helmet was the EXO-500 a lot of this review will be compared to that. In almost every way this is a better helmet. Fit feels both larger and more oval. The medium 500 always caused pressure points on the front of my forehead and while good was uncomfortable over the long haul. The 510 almost felt too big in the same size, but having worn it for a few thousand miles, I think that sensation is because there are no pressure points. I almost wonder if I should have gone down a size. I do wish they had designed the padding in the top of the head a bit better. Between the extreme cutouts of the EPS and the minimal liner, sometimes the helmet feels like it sits very "hard" on the top of the head. Field of vision is much improved over the 500 as well. My Icon Airmada spoiled me and the new 510 is just about as good in that regard. One place where I feel the 510 is not as good as the 500 (or any other Scorpion I've owned) is the anti-fog. I live in Seattle and am just a foggy guy. I can't even wear Shoei becuse they fog on me instantly. Scorpion has always had me covered, but the 510 fogs almost as if there was no EverClear coating. Not sure if they forgot at the factory, or if they've gone to a new formulation that doesn't work as well. It's bad enough that I've ordered the Pinlock shield and insert (adding $80 to the price of the helmet). Still a good deal, but it drops it from a 5* lid to a 4* in my view.

I bought this to go in my daughter's helmet for when she rides with me. I have the SMH10 in my own helmet and have used it on several trips with friends. The speakers in the SMH5 are quite a bit smaller than those in the SMH10 and seem to put out a bit less volume before distorting. Their small size might make mounting easier if you have limited space however. Another big difference is the mount itself and installation. The SMH10 mounts fairly cleanly with a single unit that acts as connector, mount and boom. The SMH5 mount is purely a mount. A separate connector wire plugs directly into the control unit to connect the speakers and a boom mic that must be velcroed in place. So far everything seems to be staying put, but it was a trickier install and I could see the plug working its way loose when riding.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this for my daughter who outgrew her old helmet. She's Asian and has a fairly round head and her old helmet was a bit too oval for her. I like the build quality and style of this helmet, it's smaller than an adult shell so it fits her better. Ventilation seems good. Price is great too. The only things I find a bit disappointing are the shield mechanism (a bit fussier than I'm used to with Shoei and Scorpion lids) and the lack of speaker pockets. In my Scorpion EXO-500 there are round depressions in the ear pocket area to mount speakers. While "recessed speaker pockets" are listed as a feature on this helmet, there are no special areas recessed for speakers. I was still able to mount a SENA system in her helmet, but it wasn't as easy or as clean as if it did have these pockets. Otherwise a great lid.
Yes, I recommend this product.
