Scorpion EXO-R2000 Fortis Helmet 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 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 face shields

As a prior owner of a Scorpion helmet the choice was quite simple when I started shopping for a new lid. I had the opportunity to check out the new EXO R2000 Fortis at the AIM Expo in Orlando, Florida this year and was very impressed with the quality of materials used and overall fit and finish. I really like the fact that it comes with a clear and dark smoked shield. The graphics are just awesome and get a lot of compliments. In my opinion, you can't beat the quality for the price as this helmet gives some of the other top brands a run for their money. Buy it, you'll love it!

I purchased the RST Gold shield for my red etched variant helmet. The shield looks awesome and provides enough protection from the sun while not impairing your vision too much at night. The only complaint that I have is that it doesn't fit the helmet as nicely as the stock clear shield that comes with the helmet. It also seems more flexible than the clear shield which is noticable when raising and lowering it. It doesn't positively lock into each detent position. I hope that Icon addresses this issue and makes the needed improvements. After all, they are charging us $45 for a shield that has their name on it.
Yes, I recommend this product.
