“We build every Scorpion Exo helmet with breakthrough design, state-of-the-art safety performance and superb craftsmanship. “And we do it in our own, state-of-the-art, 810,000 sq. ft., dedicated helmet factory: The Big Nest. We use only the most sophisticated methods and the finest materials, and we make virtually everything in-house–so we can have total control over every crucial detail. “The result is a full line of premium-quality, amazingly comfortable helmets, packed with the latest innovations. Helmets designed to help you keep your head—without spending an arm and a leg.
“You shouldn’t have to be rich to afford a world-class helmet,” continues Dr. Sloan. “That’s why every Scorpion Exo street or dirt helmet comes with an ultra-comfortable KwikWick™ helmet liner, to wick away moisture and keep you cool and dry. Why every ScorpionExo street helmet uses EverClear™ fog-free faceshield technology. It’s why we developed SpeedShift™, which lets you change shields in just ten seconds—without even taking off your helmet. It’s why we developed world-class ventilation, proven in Dan Gurney’s All American Racers wind tunnel. And why every ScorpionExo helmet, whether Fiberglass/Kevlar™ or Polycarbonate/Composite, is certified by the Snell Foundation—the world’s most demanding helmet standard.
Dr. Nikki Sloan, Director of R&D, says: “Always Wear Protection”
ScorpionExo™ is, quite simply, the next wave in motorcycle helmet and protective gear design and manufacturing. ScorpionExo Helmets are engineered by some of the world’s most sought-after helmet designers, with over 178 years of cumulative experience. And their wild, innovative graphic designs are created in hotbeds of extreme-sports creativity all over the world, from Europe to Southern California, to stay two steps ahead in this fast-moving field.
Racing and riding hard can be very strenuous, and I know when I’m racing,on dirt or pavement, staying cooler, longer is one of the keys to winning. And that’s why every ScorpionExo™ helmetbe designed with special KwikWick™liners, which draw sweat away from your skin, and help it evaporate as fast as possible. Evaporation is what does the actual cooling, but if the sweat is stuck to your skin, there’s no air circulating to evaporate it. KwikWick dissipates the sweat throughout the liner material,letting the flow-through ventilation do its job–and keeping you cooler, dryer and more comfortable.Of course, after a few rides or races, any helmet can get pretty rank inside. Which is why every ScorpionExo helmet liner can be popped right out and tossed in the washing machine, helping you–and your helmet–stay fresher, longer. When people at the racetrack say I was going like stink, I want them to mean it in a good way.
When I’m street riding, most ordinary helmets make me crazy when I want to change a faceshield,” Nikki complains. Pull this, yank that, insert tab A into slot B. You know the drill–you need a degree in mechanical engineering to put on a clear shield. When we designed the ScorpionExo™ street helmets, we knew we had to make changing shields fast, clean, simple and easy. Well, we did it. We call it the SpeedShift™ system,and it lets me–or you–change a shield in under ten seconds. With gloves on. You can even do it without taking off the helmet: You just pop the shield all the way up, twist the SpeedShift pivots, and peel off the shield. Pop the new one on, and you’re back on the road.
I also wanted to prevent fogging the faceshield in the rain, or on a humid night–‘cause if you can’t see well, you can’t ride well. So we developed theEverClear™ anti-fog coating–it keeps your clear shield clear, even when you’re breathing heavy. In the middle of the night in a Willow Springs endurance race,dragging your knee at 140 mph, you just might find yourself breathing heavy.
