Scorpion EXO-AT950 Neocon Helmet
Scorpion has redefined a segment, melding the best features of touring helmets with the versatility of an off-road lid. Scorpion EXO-AT950 Neocon Helmet is the all-in-one swiss army knife of the helmet world. The modular chin bar allows you to relieve your claustrophobia or ask for directions while the off-road style peak and large eye port deflects roost, blocks the sun and allows you to wear goggles when tearing up the trails. Additional features such as a Everclear anti-fog faceshield and Speedview drop-down internal sun visor keeps your vision clear and ready for whatever is around the next corner. If you're going to be hitting the highway, the peak visor is easily removed to give you an aerodynamic profile so you can bug out at speed. Eyeglass compatible cheek pads and a KwikWick II liner ensures total comfort.
- Advanced LG Polycarbonate shell engineered to be lightweight, strong and maximize impact displacement
- Dual Density EPS advanced multi-layer EPS provides superior energy displacement
- Intake vents on top force cool air in while exhaust vents maximize movement of hot air out of the helmet
- Dual position mouth vent 1st position acts as defroster and 2nd position acts as defroster and ventilation
- Ellip-Tec Ratchet System uses an elliptical motion that creates 7.6mm of travel which pulls the shield securely against the eye port, ensuring a proper seal and allows for 100% tool-less shield changing in a matter of seconds
- EverClear No-Fog Face Shield optically-clear shield with state-of-the-art fog-free technology, anti-scratch hardened coating, 100% UV-A & UV-B protection
- Wide eye port (11cm tall) allows for greater peripheral vision and downward visibility
- EverClear SpeedView drop down sun visor features EverClear anti-fog coating on both surfaces
- KwikWick II anti-microbial helmet liner keeps you cool and dry in warm weather, and warm in cool weather
- Kwikfit cheek pads allow easy on and off of the most common styles of eye glasses.
- Easy-use flip-up chin bar allows the chin bar to be raised or lowered with either hand.
- Communication system speaker pockets
- Removable block off plates included for use when visor is not on helmet
- Folding metal visor hardware
- 5 year warranty
- 3 shell sizes
Downsides, that tall eye port lets a lot of sun light in and the peak does not shadow the sides of eye port well but this is typical of most peaks. I use a motorcycle helmet specific tint strip applied to shield along top edge to address this issue without blocking visibility. This also helps cut down heat gain here in the desert. Also the bottom of chin guard is very close to bottom of my chin such that the chin wind guard rubs slightly under my chin.
I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a single helmet solution for all their riding needs. Would buy again.
I have seen a claimed weight of 3.77 lbs on this helmet. My food scale says it is 4.1 with the peak....so not a light weight lid by any means.
Many reviews around the Web said the Scorpion runs small so order a size up. I hate guessing but my local CG did not stock them so I ordered the XL even though I wear a Lg in most helmets. When I got the helmet and put it on it fit perfectly..... as in I had been wearing it for a while. This worries me because helmet padding breaks in. I fear it may get a bit loose over the long run, but I could not get myself to send it back for a Lg only to find the new helmet was too tight. Did I mention buying helmets over the Internet is a gamble. Oh well, I wanted to ride so I kept the XL.
I did a 160 mile trip out to the desert from North San Diego County. The temps were up into the 90s. Because of this I loved the drop down eye shield. Riding at speed with it down and the face shield up was comfortable.... until you turn your head to the side....then there is significant drag. I dropped the shield and got the same effect. It is probably the peak, so for dedicated road riding I will take it off.
There were reviewers who complained about venting. I was riding on a hot day and felt the helmet vented pretty well.
The Scorpion seemed average as far as noise goes. It is definitely quieter than my Suomy street helmet.I wore no earplugs on this ride and was not uncomfortable.
The flowers were having a once in a decade bloom in the desert so there were traffic delays on the one lane roads for miles. Since it was 90+ degrees the modular design of the Scorpion became a real plus. As we were riding by the stopped traffic at 20 mph I flipped up the faceplate increasing airflow a bunch and was still able to leave the eye shield down. Now I would never ride like that normally, but in hot traffic situations it is a real nice feature.
In the end I am giving the Scorpion a three star rating for a couple of reasons. First is the weight. I know most ADV Bike riders never see more than a smooth dirt road. That is not the case with me. I did not hit the dirt in the Scorpion this ride because I had a passenger, but my last ride was cross desert including about 6 miles of sand whoops. I think the 4+ pound Scorpion would get a bit old in real off road conditions....the "bobblehead effect"....a pain in the neck.
Second is the "sail effect" when you look side to side. It starts at 50mph. I don't think I should have to take the peak off at sub 70 mph speeds. Given the fact my XL may become a bit loose overtime makes the problem even more significant.
In the end...although I may eat this purchase and buy a ADV helmet more suitable for real dirt riding I think the average street heavy dirt light ADV Bike riders (BMW GS) will like it.
Note to CG....you should stock all helmets you sell in brick an mortar stores so customers who shop there can buy a helmet that fits.

It runs a bit small. I typically wear an Shoei XL and ordered an XXL and it fits perfectly.
For an inexpensive helmet, the visor is actually pretty clear. It's not Shoei quality, but it's close; there's very little distortion. My Sena bluetooth installed easily and fits perfectly.
For a modular, it's fairly quiet, although I recommend rising with earplugs.
I'd give it 5 stars if the optics were perfect, but all in all, this is a wonderful helmet and I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.

The modular feature is extra nice too. While I'm gearing up to get on the bike, I like having my face fully open. Because while I'm not riding, my head gets really hot and vaporous, so it's nice to have my face fully exposed to cool down.
I haven't tried using it off road, so can't comment on that. But for commuting in the rain, I enjoy it!
*Cycle Gear has an amazing return/exchange policy and customer service! (unlike some other zilla company, haha)
*Very high visibility.
*Doesn't fog in Oregon Fall rain (so far)
*Modular option is priceless when it comes to keeping your head cool and ventilated.
*You feel bada** wearing it.
*It's kind of expensive
*Scratches easily (but all helmets do, right?)
*It'd be nice if it came with a chin skirt (mine didn't)
*A little bit of rain can sprinkle on the back of your neck if you turn your head sideways (but that's where your rain gear comes in, right?)

A bit noisy at speeds over 60. Great visibility.

The first thing I noticed was the airflow. I could feel the air around the back of my ears and down my neck. I didn't have the vents opened so I think is was just the exhaust vents sucking the air out of the helmet. Either that or the neck roll doesn't fit as close to my neck.
The cheek pads are a little tight. When you close the chin bar you can feel them tighten up a little.
I was going to buy the Arai XD-4 until I found this one. It's just as comfortable, it's a modular, it has a sun shield and it's half the price.
I got the Hi-Vis Yellow.
Well worth it.
