Scorpion EXO-R2000 Dispatch 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 cheek pad 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 face shield - 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 - Cheek pads accommodate easy on and off for most common styles of eye glasses Elip-Tec Ratchet System - Easy, secure, tool-less face shield changes in seconds. Also pulls the face shield 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 cheek pads 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

This helmet rocks, The price point is just the cherry on the cake. It feels super safe (and the Snell2010 proves it). It flows a TON of air at speed, which naturally makes it slightly noisier than other helmets, but with earplugs it doesn't matter. I love the slim profile (no bobblehead look) which really helps at speed compared to other helmets I've owned.
It's also super stable, really designed ti be in the tuck position, theres almost 0 drag and no buffeting whatsoever.
The vision angles are really superior, and again helps a lot while in the tuck, compared to other helmets which force you to ill-adjust the helmet on your face or look up.
I love the feeling of the interior, soft, but really snug (great for going at speed on track or in the canyons). The air pump is a nice aditional touch and I love using it.
Great chin curtain, easy to know controls and vents, the face shield swaps super easy and the added lock and ventilation is super useful.
Did I mention it comes with a dark face shield IN THE BAG?!
Man... this helmet has it all and most importantly it helps you focus on what is important - Distraction free riding and protection. I could go on and on, but basically if you are considering this helmet, BUY IT.

Really happy with this purchase. The jacket comes true to size with a "Euro fit" which translates as it being slightly tighter than other brands. For me it was perfect.
The big takeaway is the amount of different weather that this jacket can be worn on. The 3 differet layers allow for some great adaptability and customizing for weather/riding conditions.
I have been in 2°C (convert to °F) and it made me almost forget the weather. Taking every layer off, the jacket becomes reasonably light for warmer weather, but if you live ina hot and humid place, you will be sweating after a while 'cause there's almost 0 ventilation.
This is a great 3/4 weather riding jacket and the quality is great (maybe better than some dainese textile jackets I own). I'm very happy with this purchase and thoroughly recommend it.

General/good stuff:
I bought this jacket since I was looking for a warm weather jacket, and mainly for street/canyon riding. It really is a great jacket! The looks and style are second to none! I love the possibility of joining it with my textile pants and create a sort of 2-piece riding suit. It is lighter and fresher than a leather jacket, howeve, I have to say that if the temperature is significantly high (over 30° Centigrade) it starts to feel hot. The vents do a good job of getting fresh air, specially if you are in the tuck or "Agressive" riding position.
In regards to protection, it's fairly good and standard, I love the shoulder sliders, and the elbow/forearm armor as well as the shoulder armor does give confidence. I do recommend that you get a back protector #Wave G back protector in my case# as it fits extremely well and really boosts up protection.
Negatives:
For really warm weather there are better options #totally depends on where/when you ride#
I bought the white/black/red ant it WILL get dirty relatively fast, I actually was able to machine wash it, but a trip to the drycleaner's every now and then would be a better option.
Over all I really like the slightly "agressive" fit, the style is really a highlight and you'll get compliments everywhere, and I feel well protected wearing it. Super happy with it and really recommend that you get it!

I use this inside my Dainese Aspide Jacket, and it fits just great inside the jacket, leaving me feeling quite protected with it. Just what I needed for my jacket, great complement.

I bought these as I needed a good pair of protective pants to ride in the canyons on hot weather, plus they seemed like really good style. I was not dissapointed, the protection they offer appears to be great with knee/sin guards, and reinforcemente on the outer side of my thighs, I love how all the pockets are zippered. With the vents open, they do flow a good amount of air for the hotter days, but aren't as good as a pair of mesh pants. I absolutely love the ability to attach them to Dainese jackets (mine is an Aspide) and it looks and works great. I feel really protected while wearing them and I use them in combo with the TRQ race Out boots and fit awesome, great looks and protection, Overall I consider it a great purchase and thoroughly recommend them for people riding in a not excessively hot weather. For reference i am typically a jeans size 30X30, i am 5'8'' lean athletic build and the size 46 fit just great. They do come a bit tight so take that into consideration.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought these boots as they are first of all really useful, protective and they look incredible! I did not know what to choose in terms of boot equipment level, but I have to say for the buck, you can't get more bang. They are super protective, the ankles is fixed, the toe-slider is great, the reinforcement on the toe section,, the material, the ankle protection, the adjustability is a great feature, and I consider it overall a great purchase. My girlfriend hates spoortbike and motorcycle gear look, yet she couldn't help but praise these boots for their looks! For reference, they do come a bit narrow, I am about a US size 10.5 and found the Dainese size 44 juist perfect, as I do have wide feet. I really recommend them.
Yes, I recommend this product.
