A little background: 5 years ago had a nasty wreck and blasted my head on the ground 3 solid times. Had the old EXO-400 Skull Bucket on and it saved me big time. Moving up to this higher quality and newer style helmet has been even better than the older styles. Size is great, the chart is dead on for all you new riders trying to figure that out. Plenty of vents, plenty of airflow, no idea on winter riding with them closed yet. The ratchet to lock the face shield tighter to the helmet is nice, but a pain to work with gloves on. I'll be with Scorpion for all the safety needs I can.

It seems to fit fairly well. A whole lot better than the previous KBC helmet that it's replacing. There's quite a bit of wind noise but it all seems to come underneath so it will probably vary depending on how it fits your head. Thankfully no whistling around the visor like previous helmets.
Although it is a perfect helmet, there's a little bit of flaw here and that is that when it's chill outside sometimes it gets quite easily foggy on the shield, also when it rains, there's sadly no escape from being soaked. But overall, especially with the paint on it, it's by far the best yet cheapest option, in my honest opinion. Definitely would recommend, especially if you are a fair-weather rider!
P.S: Maybe it's just me but you can never be sure.
The new Scorpion EXO R710 helmet is a great value. Plenty of features that the sportbike rider will appreciate. Shield mechanism is very nice. Airflow is very good. It is fairly quiet at speed. Aerodynamics are good. Nice interior. It looks very sporty. The only issue I had with it is, the fit is on the loose side. I wear a medium. I have several other helmets that are all medium. They all seem to fit a little different. My SHOEI RF-1200 is very snug. My HJC RPHA10 fits me perfectly. This new EXO R710 is slightly loose. I had to remove the interior pieces and apply strips of stick-on foam insulation inside the helmet to make it fit me properly. If I exchanged it for a SMALL, it would probably be too snug, so I just kept it and adjusted the interior fit. Fit issue aside, this helmet is very nice for the small asking price.
