Featuring two all-new helmets, new helmet graphics and an expanded array of ExoWear apparel, Scorpion unveils its Fall 2012 collection.

Michael MacGregor (Scorpion Product Manager) says: “Adding two new high-end helmet models, new helmet graphics as well as two new jackets, 5 glove models and rainwear is very exciting for our loyal consumers and dealer base. Scorpion has gear for a wide variety of riders and conditions.”

Highlighted in the catalog is Scorpion’s new flagship street model, the EXO-R2000.

John Kim (Managing Director) says: “Developed in conjunction with Scorpion’s stable of sponsored MotoGP racers, the EXO-R2000 is designed for the most prestigious racing circuits in the world, yet built for the everyday rider.”

The EXO-R2000 features Scorpion’s exclusive TCT helmet shell technology, Four shell sizes, Airfit® liner inflation system, KwikWick2 anti-bacterial liner material, Elliptec quick-change face shield system and full SNELL/DOT certification.

All of these features are packed into an extremely lightweight package with prices starting at $349.95 for solid colors and $369.95 for graphics. By the way, each helmet not only includes a clear shield, but Scorpion has thrown in a dark smoke shield as a bonus.

For the off-road crew, Scorpion enters the higher end dirt helmet market with the new VX-R70. This super lightweight helmet is constructed with Scorpion’s exclusive TCT helmet shell technology, AirFit liner inflation system, Kwikwick2 Anti-microbial liner material, Shatter resistant visor and a titanium double-D ring. With a great feature to value ratio, the reasonably priced VX-R70 is $249.95 for solid colors and $269.95 for either the Fragment or Flux graphics.

In addition to a look at the new lids, the latest ExoWear riding gear is highlighted as well, with the Commander II and Intrepid ¾ length textile jackets ($329.95 and $179.95 respectively), EXO-Barrier rain jacket and pant ($89.95 and $79.95) as well as a new balaclava ($22.95).
