I'll let you know how i like it after i get it. should be here around tuesday.

Anybody have one of these?

My local shop gave me a pretty good deal. Beat all the internet prices haha. so at least i'm keeping the money local

ok so the review

The helmet is REALLY tight. That or i'm just so used to my 3 year old helmet that was beyond broken in. but after a few days of riding i'm used to the tightness.


i like the flip down visor. a lot. i use it like 100% of the time when the sun is out. i just wish it was tinted a bit darker.

the noise. it was really overwhelming at first. my old hjc wasn't even as close to being as loud. but like i said after a few days it doesn't even bother me anymore. it's more of a knife cutting through air noise if you know what i mean. it's hard to explain. like blow into the edge of your hand. kinda like that noise as opposed to blowing into the palm of your hand. it's like cutting air.

and my motorcycle sounds COMPLETELY different through this helmet. it's weird. not sure how to describe it.

the pump works great. it helps get that custom perfect fit. no complaints.






















and if this anything like my past threads you're all gonna bitch and moan because of exaggerations like scorpion uses child labor and clubs baby seals.

Nice snag for around $200...even better that your local shop beat the online prices. We need more shops like that around here. They all just want your money in the worst way.

Please let me know about any whistling noises while riding! Turning your head at any angle on my 700 creates a whistle and it kills me, wouldn't mind the 500 if it doesn't have the whistle

I had a 400 that is pretty much the same thing as the 700 that had a nasty whistle. The 500 does not whistle like the 400 at all. Great helmet for the price, I got one shipped to Canada for $250 cdn. from superbiketoystore.com(they were great) and the local dealer wanted $279+tax.

Seeing as how my 4 year old son just used my new HJC helmet as a basketball...I am also looking at the EXO-500 but also considering a shark.

So far I like my EXO-700, I'm sure you will be happy with your 500. In a year or two I plan to try out Shoei though.
