Redefining the definition of value and versatility.
SANTA FE SPRINGS – June 1, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The new EXO-AT950 is a modular helmet with a removable external face shield, an internal drop-down tinted sun visor, and costs under $300.
“After three years of development, we are delighted to bring this new product to market.” says Frank Esposito. “We’ve known there has been a demand for a modular ADV style helmet for years, but we wanted to make sure the helmet met all the needs of the Touring and Adventure Touring community. We have been asking people what they wanted in a helmet and why, and we feel we have done a great job of meeting their needs.”
The first thing you will notice is the huge eye-port, allowing you to see more of the world around you. The peripheral field of vision is exceptional making it easier to look over your shoulder when doing lane changes. If it’s really bright outside, the internal drop-down Speedview® SunVisor can be lowered easily with gloves on while riding. The external peak visor is designed to have very little lift and be quiet at highway speeds, but can easily be removed without tools. “Then you add the fact that it’s a flip-up modular helmet for under $300 and people can’t believe it.” says Esposito.
Editors and product testers have been very helpful by providing feedback during the design process. “The visor detentes, drop down sunshade and vents all operate very smoothly. The liner is comfortable as well.” says Carl Parker publisher and editor of ADVMoto Magazine.
“The AT950 actually meets the needs of a lot of different types of riders and that’s what’s going to make this helmet so popular.” says’ Mr. Esposito. “It will obviously appeal to the Adventure Touring crowd, but with the peak visor removed, it’s also a great touring helmet. Additionally you can remove the face shield and use goggles for when it’s dusty. The aggressive styling will also make it popular with the Urban riders and the UTV crowd.”
The Scorpion AT950 is available in three solid colors: Matte Black, Matte Anthracite, and Hyper Silver and retails for $269.95. The Neocon graphic is available in Hi-Vis Neon, Bright Orange, and Phantom silver and retails for $289.95.
