LAKE FOREST, CA – February 23, 2010 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – After its red carpet roll-out at the Dealer Expo in Indy, Scorpion’s new “Hollywood” EXO-700 is set to make its debut at your local dealership. The Hollywood combines leading man good looks with race-ready performance and the top-of-the-line technology for some real star-power.
The Hollywood helmet is more than just another pretty face, however. Starting with a proven Snell/DOT-approved fiberglass/Kevlar™ matrix shell, Scorpion’s engineers put their thinking caps on to take a top-rated lid and make it even better. Although the external shell went through extensive wind tunnel testing to achieve minimal headshake at max speeds, it is the depth of character that counts when it comes to the Hollywood’s performance, such as the state-of-the-art dual density EPS liner designed to absorb maximum energy should this rising star take a fall.
When things do heat up from the paparazzi’s flashbulbs on the way to the podium, Scorpion’s KwikWick® washable moisture-wicking comfort liner keeps rider’s heads cool. Adding to the airflow is the fully adjustable Aero-Tuned ventilation system, also born of the wind tunnel testing. Speaking of cool, the SpeedShift® quick-change system allows the outer faceshield to snap into place in less than 10 seconds — without tools! Nor is there any stage fright from fogging here as Scorpion’s EverClear® shields are your best defense against fogging.
Of course the academy award styling cues enable the EXO-700 to really be a star… Literally! The star graphic comes in a choice of three vibrant colorways (silver/red, silver/blue and pearl white/black), augmented by a wide array of blacked out, tinted or mirrored EverClear® faceshields — Everyone knows Hollywood stars have the coolest shades. However, the real spotlight shining on this helmet is the price: under $250. What can we say, A Star Is Born!
MSRP for the EXO-700 Hollywood: $229.95
