Scorpion EXO crash test/Review of new EXO-1000

I had an EXO 750, I think it was, that I was wearing when I crashed (it is currently in my someone's car so I dont have a pic), worked well, hit the back of my head pretty hard and didn't feel it and wasn't hurt. Bought an EXO-1000, that thing has a lot of features. Built in flip down sun visor, adjustable cheek pads (by air pump and release button). Lots of other stuff as well, quiter than the 750 and more fomfortable as well. Great buy for 280$.

I have been trying to locate one of the Exo 1000's to try on and can not find them anywhere locally. Where did you pick yours up? Is the sun visor effective?

Tried one on a couple months back. Absolutely love the sun visor feature. I have an EXO-700 right now and I'm thinking the 1000 is my next helmet.

My buddy told me about it and the local honda shop had a few, I wore a medium in the 700 but a large in the 1000. The sun visor isn't dark enough if the sun is really bright but it works pretty well, if there is a way to put a dark visor in I would do it.

I might have to give that one a try next year.

still looks cheesy and very hjc-ish when you compare quality to arai/shoei/suomy etc... at least here on the shelf at the shop. haven't worn one, but not impressed much

I was just in the shop checking out those Scorps, the HJC's Arai and Shoei yesterday. This thread means a bunch more now that I've actually taken a look at and tried on the hardware. Thanks amigo!

Don't leave us hanging; which helmet did you choose?

None yet. I need to talk to the Spaniard or Cuban or wherever the "Engrish" Patient came from..

I also traded my ancient Shoei in for the matte black EXO-1000. I love this thing. My Shoei was probably pushing 10 years old, so I'm sure helmet technology has come a long way, but I'm still taken aback. I love not carrying sunglasses everywhere. It is worlds lighter, can fit my noggin perfectly with the pump, and is well vented and light. Good stuff. I got mine from Sportbiketrackgear.com. They had it in stock, and I had it within 4 days of ordering.

My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.
