Upon removing it from the box I was surprised(just a bit)on the size difference as compared to my scorpion EXO-700. I did read & was aware of it but seeing them side by side is a little dramatic—–not that that’s a bad thing. The helmet is really great looking & I got complements from complete strangers. The fit for me is quite comfortable & not too tight as I’ve read & took the advise of ordering a Medium & not the small. I’m right in the grey area of the top end of a small & bottom end of a medium. The fit of this style helmet is quite different from the traditional full face. With the chin strap secure & the chin bar in the down position it feels downright roomy as compared to my scorpion.The features that were lacking in the original model namely the chin guard & click stops seem to have been retro-ed into these late model 2011’s. I was pleasantly surprised & at the price point of $99 this helmet is nothing less than a steal. The helmet is generally louder than my scorpion however If I’m not traveling too far I’m Ok with it but if out for a full days ride I’ll use ear protection just as I do with my scorpion. I did notice that when the outer shield is down there’s no sound muffling at all. My scorpion by comparison offers quite a bit. I do find it to be very stable at highway speeds to 75+ mph. There have been comments that the rear vents create lots of noise but I was able to completely block them at speed & I can say without reservation they have nothing to do with it whatsoever. The helmet is just noisier than your traditional full face models. I didn’t see any problems with the shield sealing as others commented. I did notice that if it wasn’t snapped in properly there was. All mechanicals worked just fine. All in all I’m very pleased with my new Bell. It will take a little getting used to but I really like the options it provides & really like its modular design.
