KBC size Vs Scorpion

I plan on ordering a Scorpion Helmet online, Only other Helmet I have worn is KBC in medium.

Does anyone know how the Scorpion fits compared to KBC?

ive owned both. my scorpion XL fit just like the KBC XL i had. and fwiw, youll be much happier with the scorpion.

*edit* i should add the only scorpions ive ever owned were the 700's. i cant testify to the 400 or the 1000, though id assume they'd be the same if not pretty close.

I used XL in KBC, I had to go with the XXL in Scorpion though. I *might* have gotten away with XL in the Scorpion as well once the padding settled, but the XXL is still pretty snug 1.5 years later.

Edit: I have both a 400 and 700 scorpion. I don't use the 400.. it's just a backup. One thing I didn't like about the 400 is the distance to the first notch when opening the visor. Sometimes I like to leave my visor opened to the first click.. on the 400 it's open too far. The 700 is much more closed at the first click.

Just my little observations that probably only apply to me.
