Scorpion Exo 700 vs Scorpion Exo 400 Review

I’ve bought both the Scoripon Exo 700 (for myself) and the Scorpion Exo 400 (passenger) helmets and decided to do a review on them. These helmets are very popular and people often ask which one to get: the 400 or the 700. Let me first say that these are my first helmets so I cannot compare them to any other helmets I’ve had.

I am very pleased with both helmets, so there will be no winners or losers in this review. I will just point out the differences between the two.

First, the Scorpion Exo 700.

I bought this one @ http://www.sportbiketrackgear.com/ for $108.95 + $35.00 shipping to Canada. That’s $143.95 USD in total (and no tariffs!). It pays to order a previous year model, STG often has them on sale for a fraction of a price of a current year model.

PROS:
Light
Very good build quality
Ventilates very well
Does not fog up

CONS:
If you wear glasses, they are not as easy to put on as with Exo 400
A bit noisy (b/c it ventilates so well)

Second, the Scorpion Exo 400

I bought this one as STG as well, for $64.95 + $35.00 shipping to Canada. That’s $99.95 USD in total. This is a previous year model as well.

PROS:
Same shield as on 700, does not fog up
Just as light as the 700
A bit less noisy then the 700
Easier to put on glasses then with the 700
Price

CONS:
The plastic looks cheap comparing to Exo 700 (the shell looks just as nice though)
Does not ventilate as well

In conclusion, I would like to repeat that I am very pleased with both helmets. If your budget allows for it, go for the Exo 700. Otherwise, get yourself a 400 and rest assured that you are not missing out on much.
