Friend went down in Arkansas and tore his shoulder apart based on the force of hitting the ground. His EXO 400 did it's job fine and he's replacing it with the same one.

What do they mean by "squeeze"?

I have an EXO 700 and I have been very happy with it. In fact you'll see my testimonial on the Scorpion site in their customers section.

However, I have never crash tested one and don't know anyone who has. Anyone here?

Patrick - Motorcycles Unlimited

I tell you what - I don't know what the big difference is between the 400 and 700 BUT I will tell you all the reports I here are that your buying a helmet made to at least a $300 - 400 value for around the 200's. My BIGGEST love is the fact it has so many vents for air flow. They are definately not the lightest helmet on the market but again for price I don't think you can beat them. Mind you should price be an option when it's your head???


Everybody will have an opinion! If it feels comfy and suits your style buy it!!! Only rule of thumb when buying gear for riding is generally you pay for what you get. The better rated/tested materials are more expensive and ofourse vice versa. If you want a "real" opinion call Motorcycles Unlimited and speak with Patrick - he'll never lead you the wrong way!

yeah it "squeezes" but i believe that is only b/c the 400 is not made of fiber materials like the 700. I haven't heard or read any bad reviews (impact/crash wise) for any of the Scorpion helmets. I have the 400 and it's not bad for the price. Never crashed tested it so I couldn't tell you how it holds up first hand.
