Congratulations for acquiring a premium ScorpionExo helmet. This helmet embodies the latest,
state-of-the-art design, engineering and technology available in the market today and is an
excellent investment for your comfort and
protection.
Please remember that no helmet can protect
you against all possible or foreseeable impacts
even when built with the latest and best
materials and technology.
Function
A helmet’s main function is to protect your head from impact in case
of an accident. To accomplish this, a helmet surrounds your head
with a matrix of materials designed to absorb and cushion impact
energy. A helmet is also designed to provide you with comfort while
riding at speed and in various weather conditions. Yet, there is a
trade-off: A helmet decreases hearing sensitivity, peripheral vision
and physical movement to a certain extent while providing
protection and comfort.
Fit
It is important for maximum safety that your ScorpionExo helmet fit
snugly and comfortably on your head with the retention strap
(chinstrap) properly fastened. If the helmet moves side-to-side or
forward and backward without pulling the facial skin and scalp, it is
too large. If the helmet is constricting or painful, it is too small.
The following information will help you to enjoy and
properly care for your helmet.
Faceshields
The faceshield on your ScorpionExo helmet provides protection
from weather, small flying objects and wind (exceeds VESC-8).
Tinted shields are available to protect your eyes from excessive
sunlight. The exclusive, patent-pending ScorpionExo “Speedshift™
” quick-change faceshield system allows you to easily change your
shield in less than 10 seconds. See the instructions below.
NEVER WEAR A FACESHIELD THAT HAS BECOME
SCRATCHED, OR RIDE WITH A FACESHIELD THAT IS FOGGED
BY CONDENSATION. SCORPION-EXO FACESHIELDS (CLEAR
AND SMOKE ONLY) COME WITH A SPECIAL EVERCLEAR™
SCRATCH-AND FOG-RESISTANT COATING. THIS COATING
MAY LOSE ITS EFFECTIVENESS AFTER APPROXIMATELY
TWO YEARS OF USE. THEREFORE, FOR MAXIMUM SAFETY
AND VISIBILITY, WE RECOMMEND YOU REPLACE
YOURSCORPION-EXO FACESHIELD WITH A NEW, GENUNESCORPIONEXO FACESHIELD AT LEAST EVERY TWO YEARS.
Ventilation systems
Ventilation systems are designed and engineered to maximize your
comfort in a wide range of temperatures. Familiarize yourself with
the vents on your street helmet. Some vents have detents allowing
partial opening and closing, thereby controlling intake and exhaust
airflow. Your helmet ventilation systems should be kept clear of any
obstructions including dirt, insects or other items which could
interfere with proper flow of air. The ventilation systems play an
important role, especially during physical exertion or hot-weather
riding.

may loosen it.
Cleaning your
ScorpionExo™helmet
system
None of the components of your ScorpionExo helmet can be
damaged by water. All headliners and self-wicking cheek pads are
machine washable. Wash them with a mild detergent in warm
water and allow to air dry. Hand washing is recommended, but
machine washing is also permitted. Use the “delicate” cycle to
prevent the agitator from damaging the self-wicking material
covering the liner parts. Do not place lining parts in the dryer:
Excess heat may damage the foam and coverings. The faceshield
may be cleaned with plastic polish or mild soap and water. The
shell of your helmet should be cleaned using only a mild detergent
and water. NEVER USE PETROLEUM BASED CHEMICALS,
SOLVENTS, GASOLINE, CLEANING AGENTS OR ADHESIVES
to clean the shell, liners or faceshield of your helmet. Your helmet
shell, liner and faceshield may be seriously damaged by the use of
such products. A coat of automotive wax over the outer shell will
provide added shine and a protective layer for the finish.
Don’t
DON’T ride without fastening your chinstrap and buckle.
DON’T clean your helmet with petroleum products, solvents,
benzene, thinner or cleaning agents.
DON’T paint over your helmet’s finish.
DON’T drop your helmet from any height onto a hard suface. This
could cause damage to your helmet’s finish and/or decrease its
ability to protect you.
DON’T place your helmet on your motocycle’s rearview mirror: The
sharp pressure from the mirror’s edge will compress and damage
the helmet’s shock-absorbing liner.
DON’T place your helmet on the motocycle’s seat or fuel tank.
It can easily roll off and hit the ground causing damage to the
helmet. It is better to place your helmet on the ground so it cannot
fall in any direction.
DON’T ride with a scratched faceshield. This can impair your
vision, especially at night.
DON’T modify any part of your helmet, e.g., drilling the shell or
cutting and pressing the shock absorbing liner. Installation of
sound systems, speakers and microphones reduces your helmet’s
ability to protect you and is not recommended.
DON’T use the helmet again if it has either been dropped or
involved in an accident. Replace it even if damage is not visible to
the naked eye.
DON’T wear a dark or tinted faceshield in dark or poor visibility riding conditions. DON’T place your headliners and cheek pads in the
dryer after washing. Allow them to air dry.
DON’T attempt to remove, change or replace your faceshield while
riding your motorcycle or ATV.
