The visor is scratch-resistant coated and pinlock-prepared. The helm has an integrated retractable Speedview sun visor to protect the driver from extreme sunlight. In addition, the EXO-490 comes with KickWick interior lining, water-repellent, removable and washable, and aerodynamic ventilation to allow fresh air to flow into the helmet and allow warm air to escape. This helmet is the best choice for handy touring skiers who want various functionalities at a competitive price.
- Pinlock® MAXVISION prepared
Fitting perfectly into the specially depressed area of the face shield, the Pinlock® creates continuous air pressure through the compression force, which in turn stops condensation – and thus fogging – from occurring even when the temperature difference between the outside and the inside of the helmet increases.
Note: Pinlock lens sold separately.
- KWIKWICK2® LINER:
Very effective, hypoallergenic, removable, machine washable, and very soft and pleasant to the touch, the KwikWick2® lining of the new ScorpionExo® 2011 range is a real custom-made slipper for your head.
- SPEEDVIEW® 100% UV Sunvisor:
Retractable sunvisor treated with anti fog on both sides.
- KwikFit® – Eye Glass Fit System
Allows use of most common styles of eye glasses.
- Speedshift® Shield System:
With this unique system, the visor can be changed in less than 10 seconds.
With the visor open, it’s enough to just turn the two twist grips to 1/4 to remove it. To replace it the operation is just as simple.
The visor clips on automatically around the twist grips by simply pressing it on. Easy, reliable and clever.

The next step in the fitment process are fitment checks. The following tests should be performed with the chin strap properly and securely in place. Helmet movement should also move the skin on your face and scalp. Helmets will fit snug when new and have a break in period. The helmet should not fit so tight as to cause discomfort or pain. If your measurement is at the upper number of any size range start at that range then move up as needed.
1. With the helmet in place and chin strap secured, shake your head side to side, if the helmet moves independently of your head then the helmet is too big. When performing this test, the helmet liner and cheek pads should be in direct contact with your skin. While shaking, your skin should move with the helmet.
2. Place one hand directly behind your head and push forward. Use your other hand and try to slip your little finger between your forehead and the helmet EPS liner. If you are able to slip your finger in, the helmet is too big.
3. To test for helmet lift, place one hand on the chin bar and push up (while the chin strap is secured), if the helmet comes off your head it is too big. Next, place one hand on the back and push up again, if your helmet lifts off your head the helmet is too big.
