The long awaited photo chromatic visor from Scorpion Helmets This new face shield for EXO-400 and EXO-700 helmets is light sensitive and turns from clear to a smoked tint in a matter of minutes. The total transition time depends on the intensity of the sunlight. We have found when testing this visor that total transition time takes 5 min. max, and as little as 1 min in direct sunlight. The visor also features the high quality everclear fog free coating. Never change your visor again, and never have to carry an extra shield. Ride day to night. This brand new Photo Chromatic visor from Scorpion will not let you down.

they are really really light way lighter than my arai. not snell approved, they are they meet the british version of snell's requirments. they are pretty comfortable fit like an agv if you've ever worn one of those, the cheek pads come up pretty high. the face shields are unbreakable there like quarter inch thick!
sick helmets fo sho

jetcycles had a shark one time when I rode with him. PM him and ask him. He slings parts and gear, I'm sure his opinions would be worth consideration.

dunno about that model shark. I have a RSR2 and really like it. Too bad I crushed some of the impact liner when i had my little incident. Will be purchasing an arai rx7 soon to see what all the hype is about. You can pick up a RSX model from ebay for the same price as the s650 but no graphics.
On the upside you do get: 1) shell made from carbon fibre/kevlar fibre instead of thermoplastic resin. 2) 3mm shield vs 2.2mm. 3) shell comes in 2 different sizes so if you wear a small you don't look like you have a darth vader lid on. 4) D-ring chin straps instead of quick release buckle. 5)coolmax lined padding.
um...yeah good luck
