Scorpion Helmut....windy

Ladies & Gents, I have a Scorpion EXO that's 1 year old that I don't typically use (on my harley with windshield I usually wear a half helmut).

I picked up a sport bike this weekend and rode it home 200 miles with my Scorpion on. The FN' wind was swirling in my helmut so much my eyes teared up at 80MPH!

I played with the vents and it didn't seem to help....any tips, ideas, suggestions?

There is a 7$ skirt you can buy that will basicly cut off all the air from coming up under your chin. Its more for cold weather but I like it in just to keep the wind down. Going slow I pop the visor open just a crack so I dont get to hot.

I had a scorpion EXO and had no issues. Maybe it is size too large.

I have a EXO 700 and I never had that problem. Maybe the helmet you are wearing is a little too big!!!

Rojer beat me to asking if you closed the visor....I get a lil dirt kicked up when it's really windy and lots of dust is flying around, but not enough wind to make eyes water

Its not the noise that he is complaining about. Its the wind in his face and eyes making his eyes water.

No problems with my EXO-700. When someone is riding two up it will move my head around a little but thats it.

i have an exo as well and used to have this same issue. try adjusting how the helmet sits around your head. if that doesnt work out, you might be in the same boat as me and might have a head shape that scorpion doesnt like.
