Scorpion EXO-AT950 is an adventure touring motorcycle helmet that can be used as full-face, modular, and dirt bike motorcycle helmet. Well, yeah! you heard me. It is like having four different helmets while paying for one. The Scorpion EXO-AT950 helmet is a multi-purpose economically priced motorcycle helmet that comes with a flip-front chin bar, dual-visor, aero-tuned ventilation, KwikWick cheek pads, space for comm systems, and much more.
It could really be a blessing for daily commuters who travel to the office into the sun several days a week. With the drop-down sun visor in Scorpion EXO-AT950, they can add a layer into their daily commute. Many ADV touring helmets didn’t allow you to wear goggles with your helmet but the Scorpion EXO-AT950 gives you a clear and wide field of vision and let you wear goggles with the helmet.
The Scorpion did a really good job in the design area too. I’m sure you will appreciate the cool graphics of Scorpion EXO-AT950. But, first, let’s talk about the features and functionality of this dual-sport flip-up motorcycle helmet.
Scorpion EXO-AT950 Motorcycle Helmet Review
Shell Design & Protection Level:
Scorpion EXO-AT950is a dual-sport flip-up motorcycle helmet which fills the need of a flip-up, dual-sport, and off-road helmets. To ensure, it works in 3-way, the Scorpion engineered this helmet with a lightweight advanced LG polycarbonate shell which offers maximum impact displacement in case you get yourself in an accident on or off-road. Inside the shell is a Dual-density EPS liner which is how this helmet will displace impact energy throughout the helmet and ensure your head won’t get much damage.
However, the Scorpion EXO-AT950 ADV helmet is on a little heavier side and comes in an intermediate oval shape within 3.77 lbs. The helmet meets the DOT safety standards and comes in three different shell sizes with a 5-year warranty.
We can say, that the specialty of Scorpion EXO-AT950 is certainly not its shell design but the way it works with multiple bikes in multiple conditions. However, I would suggest trying to avoid off-road riding with this helmet. Because the level of protection it provides is not enough to ride off-road terrains.
The helmet is actually designed for ADV riders. So, if you are an ADV rider who sometimes like to get your tires dirty then Scorpion EXO-AT950 will do just fine.
The Scorpion EXO-AT950 helmet comes with the aero-tuned ventilation system where its top intake vents allow the cool air to pass through the EPS of the helmet while the ‘always open’ exhaust vents remove the hot air out of the helmet.
On reviewing the helmet, I found that the helmet has two big channels that direct the air to the rider’s head. And if you are looking for steady airflow in the helmet then make sure the liner isn’t blocking the vent holes.
If we talk about the chin vent then the Scorpion EXO-AT950 has a larger vertical slider that you can use even with the gloves on. The slider brings the air inside the helmet through a horizontal slot. The chin vent is a dual-position mouth vent which works at two different positions. In the first position, it works as a defroster for defogging purpose and in the second position, it works as defroster and ventilation.
Overall, the ventilation of Scorpion EXO-AT950 is good. Even the Scorpion EXO-AT950 users also ave positive feedback on airflow and ventilation of this ADV helmet.
Face Shield & Visor:
If you are looking for extended visibility then Scorpion EXO-AT950 can provide you the outstanding visibility through its 11 cm tall wide eye-port that extends the peripheral and downward visibility.
So, in terms of visibility, Scorpion EXO-AT950 won’t let you down. The helmet comes with an EverClear anti-fog face shield which recognized for its innovative technology and anti-scratch hardened coating that also protect you from harmful UV rays.
Apart from this, it comes with an additional SpeedView drop-down sun visor which has an anti-fog coating on both surfaces.
Even with the internal sun visor, you will experience outstanding visibility while riding down the road. Also, the helmet’s face shield succeed to keep the rainwater out when sealed. However, there were some small beads of water but that was after riding many kilometers in the heavy rain.
For proper seal, the Scorpion EXO-AT950 has the Ellip-Tec Ratchet System that uses an elliptical motion to ensure a tight seal.
Interior & Comfort Level:
The Scorpion EXO-AT950 has Scorpion’s KwikWick II anti-microbial liner with the tendency to keep you warm in winter and cool in summer. The liner is removable and washable so you can remove the liner to clean it anytime you want. But, I would recommend you to hand wash the liner so that it won’t lose its tendency.
Apart from this, the helmet has Kwikfit cheek pads that allow riders to use the different styles of eyeglasses. The cheek pads make it easy to wear goggles while riding off-road.
The Scorpion EXO-AT950 also has communication system speaker pockets that can benefit you in using the Bluetooth motorcycle headset with your helmet to communicate while riding.
The helmet is undoubtedly great. I can think of a few helmets that can be used in three different ways. The Scorpion EXO-AT950 provides quite good ventilation than other modular motorcycle helmets but in comparison to full-face helmets, Scorpion EXO-AT950 is a little noise that could be a drawback for riders who use it in off-road riding.
