Scorpion EXO-T1200 Freeway Helmet review
Modified On Oct 24, 2018 By Rommel Albuquerque
The all new EXO-T1200 is the first helmet model to join Scorpion’s new T-Series, designed with premium features to meet the needs of hardcore or leisure touring riders. The profile is aerodynamic and aggressive, while advanced features like the TCT composite shell, AirFit liner inflation system, 3-Step SpeedView drop down sun visor and VSV ventilation system to enhance any type of riding experience. The KwikWick liners do a really good job of absorbing sweat and dry’s off pretty quick even in our humid Mumbai climate. The massive air vents in the front and on the top allow a lot of air to enter the helmet and keep your head cool but at higher speeds the wind noise can get a bit irritating but all you have to do is close the vents. If you still hear that pesky noise, use the AirFit inflation system to pump up the cheek pads for a firmer tighter fit. You also have the option of locking the visor in place with the flip of switch which is useful if you plan on going racing to the track.
The helmet also comes equipped with a sun shield that slides down with the flip of a lever but the highlight of the T1200 is its weight. In spite of having so many features and adhering to such strict safety standards, the helmet weighs just 1.35kg which is a blessing on long rides. You also get a Pinlock clear shield with the helmet that you can attach to the inside of the helmet visor to reduce fogging up of the visor. Overall the Scorpion T1200 freeway helmet is leagues apart from any other local branded helmet available in India. But that’s because this helmet is imported from France and hence also comes with a slightly hefty price tag.
Cost: Rs. 22,000

Developed exclusively by ScorpionEXO®, the revolutionary TCT® (Thermodynamic Composite Technology) process consists of a proprietary 5 layer blend of interlaced and specially formulated fiberglass, Aramid and organic poly-resin fibers
Advanced Dual-Density EPS:
A multi-layer EPS provides efficient energy displacement in key areas including EPS lining throughout the entire chin bar
VSV™ (Venturi Super Vent) Ventilation System:
Scopion’s innovative VSV™ (Venturi Super Vent) System was specially designed and wind-tunnel tested to increase the venturi effect, a creation of negative air pressure. The two intake ports both serve a separate function, the first draws cool air into the helmet interior while the second draws cool air across the three exhaust ports. As the second intake port passes air through the graduated super vent air channel, it accelerates the flow of air over the three exhaust ports, thus increasing the venturi effect which will draw more warm air out of the helmet interior
