F.A.Q.

Frequently asked questions

What's the difference between the EXO and VX helmet shells?

The EXO Models are premium street helmets while the VX Models are our premium off-road helmets.

Is a fiberglass or a polycarbonate helmet better for me?

Both the polycarbonate composite matrix helmets and the fiberglass/Kevlar helmets comply with the exact same standards – DOT – SNELL – ECE. These are “pass-fail” standards and do not reflect any continuum or graduated level of compliance. No one can tell (or guarantee) you one will be any safer than another in an accident.

How is a helmet supposed to fit my head?

In a word: SNUG! Please study our “SIZING” section on the website for more detailed instructions. If the fit is painful, it is likely too tight. There are 3 tests we recommend to be sure the helmet is not too big behind the “SIZING” button. Make sure you use all 3 because most people in America buy their helmets too big. If it is too big, the helmet cannot do its job to the fullest.

What is the weight of your helmet compared to other?

Our helmets weigh comparably to the competition. There may be some variation during the production run of a few grams here and there, but this is virtually imperceptible by the rider. Traditionally the fiberglass helmets will weigh a few ounces less than the polycarbonate helmets and for this reason may be preferable to some riders.

Is it possible to trade comfort liners to change sizes?

Currently we offer a few different shell sizes allowing limited changes to be made. You may “size up” or “size down” as long as the next size is within the same shell size. To see whether your helmet’s liner can change into the next size, click HERE for the liner swap chart.

Can I get replacement sideplates for my helmet if I need them?

All the spare parts are available to you from either your local dealer or direct from Scorpion Sports by calling toll-free 888-672-6774

How do I remove the headliner and cheek pads?

Place helmet upside down in your lap or on a soft towel to prevent scratching the finish. Three snaps hold in each cheek pad. Reach in and grab from the top and pull each snap outward. Once the pad is free from the snaps, pull out and repeat on the other side. To remove the head liner detach the two snaps in the back, by reaching in and pulling outward. Now move to the front of the head liner. The hard plastic vent piece holds the front. Gently pull out and the liner is free. To install, reverse the steps. See the Video

Do the replacement shields offer UV protection?

By nature a shield will filter some UV light, but we had our shields tested by an independent lab. What they found is our shield offers excellent UVA and UVB Protection; Clear shields block 96%-98% UVA-UVB light and Mirrored/Smoke shields block 100% UVA-UVB light. We also comply with VESC-8 Vehicle Equipment Safety Commission (Alexandria VA) for penetration resistance and shatter proof-eye protection.

Do the replacement shields come with EverClear® anti–fog like the standard shield?

All of our shields have the EverClear™ anti-fog protection like the standard shield.
