While shopping around for a new lid, I wanted to make sure that I had something lightweight, stable, race ready but still comfortable enough to use as a daily rider and wont break the bank (i'm not in AMA or MotoGP). This usually kept me in the range of the Shoei RF1200, the HJC RPHA10, or the Bell Vortex/Star but after reading the reviews on Scorpions first endeavor into a top level helmet, I had a new contender. The EXO-R2000 delivers all the features you are looking for in a helmet; light weight, wide peripheral view range, massive air flow, cool design, and the free dark visor and "custom" fit with the inflatable cheek pads are the icing and cherry on top.All this and I haven't mentioned the incredible price point. After considering it all, my decision was between either the Bell Star or this helmet. I feel that I went with the smarter choice financially and got a beyond comparable helmet. I will use this helmet for track days and weekend rides in the mountains or in the city.
