Scorpion XO 900 helmet
I have been researching helmets for a week or two and have just ordered the replacement for my Jarrow Mono X2. I tried on a pre-mfg sample that the sales guy had at a dealership I frequent. I was called over to check it out for them. Here is what I found:
Nice looking, fits nicely with the pump-up like the 1000 to fit better, outer clear shield has friction action so it is infinitely adjustable, chin bar gives me more room inside than the Jarrow, internal tented shield has full on or off position and is a bit shorter that the Jarrow but I think low enough to not be a glare problem, XL fit me whereas the Jarrow was the only XXL I have ever needed, I hope the vents will work as good as they appear they should, it uses D rings instead of the clickit so I will have to adjust, colors will be gloss or flat black and a silver(I ordered), one-hand opening, chin dam, liner comes out easier than the Jarrow
Production should be starting soon with delivery to stores June-ish. I hope that means mid-July max. Cost is less than $300.
I also scored a hot Scorpion poster for my Man Cave.
