Is the scorpions better than the KBC speed demon?

Do you guys recommend the Exo 1000 Apollo, or the Crackhead.

How good is this helmet quality wise compared to scorpion http://www.shoei-helmets.com/product.../sever_tc1.jpg

chin curtain is a little piece of fabric that bridges the gap under your chin with the helmet on. It keeps wind and air from coming into your helmet from underneath.

This is the Shoei one. You just push it into the bottom of the front of the helmet

since im sitting here wearing my exo 1000 helmet as im posting this, its an all around comfortable helmet for my noggin. the flip down visor is easy to use with gloves, it hasnt fogged on me yet, i havent had a chance to ride with it to see how the noise level is, but with the visor down and the liner pumped up around you, its pretty quiet..

lemme know if you got any questions about this helmet

love the scorpion; it does get that cold if you ride in houston in the cold months... but keep the visor clean and less problem w fogging up.

I have friends w that kbc and they say its comfortable, doesn't fog but I don't have any experience... I use to wear flip helmets all the time and the scorpion is so much lighter, breathes so well... my longest trip w it in a day was only 500 miles but didn't have any neck strain that a heavier or flip helmet would have given me...

Yeah that Scorpion EXO1000 helmet is really nice. I been wanting to get one but no one seems to have it in a large only XS or XL. So I cant try one on and I really don't want to take one on faith that it will fit good.
