The most dangerous thing I ride on a daily basis is the subway, and a helmet isn’t going to protect me from the hazards I encounter down there, which is too bad, since I really need a reason to justify buying one of these transforming EXO-900 models from Scorpion. Its three modes include a full face helmet, a flip front modular and a 3/4 helmet making it suitable for use all year round on anything from a superbike to a Vespa.
The EverClear No-Fog Faceshield uses state-of-the-art fog free technology and the retractable SpeedView Sun Visor features an anti-scratch hardened coating, and both can be easily removed or attached without the use of any tools. The helmet also features a moisture-wicking breathable liner as well as the AirFit helmet pump inflation system for a perfect custom fit. Depending on the finish and color options the Scorpion EXO-900 sells from about $270 to $280, and while I’m not sure if that’s expensive for a helmet, it seems reasonable for what is essentially the most important thing you can wear while riding.
