Another thing I really like about Scorpion helmets (maybe others have it too) is the fog free faceshield.
They say it's not a coating but something about the plastic that keeps it from fogging and it works.

I just gotta get my glasses to stop fogging now.

I had an EXO 1000 that I used once. I have no idea what it weighs, but it felt like I had a wrecking ball on top of my melon. It may very well not be that heavy, but it certainly felt it out in the breeze.

Quality wise, I couldn't fault it for the money.

I went back to an Arai as they fit me best. Helmets are much like oil.....

Scorps are good value for the money but yeah - they're heavy. I love my EXO900 but I'm thinking its getting replaced by something lighter in the very near future.

Oddly enough, the weight doesn't bother me that much.

If a lid is both EC/Snell and DOT rated that is good enough as far as protection in my book. They are 2 differnt tests so if a lid can pass both it's designed well.

Bang for the buck Scorpion is pretty good. I wish they weren't made in China but it is what it is... I've owned 3 - EXO700's and now 2 1000's. The shields are VERY clear and reasonably priced. (one of the reasons I quit wearing Aria a long time ago).

The main thing about a lid is to buy one that fits and wear it. I read a study a while back where Snell was retesting alot of their "old stock". Apparently they store alot of lids for a long time. Anyway, they still preformed well even being 20 years old.
That being said, the main factor on wether it's going to work is if it's on your head as opposed to strapped on the side of your scooter like some sort of accessory....

i have a speed and strength ss1500, i really like it. the inner visor isn't the greatest by itself above 50-55 mph but oh well. so far i havent had an issue with fogging but i also dont wear glasses. and the little air pump thing is awesome for me since i have kind of a skinny face.
