As modular motorcycle helmets targeted towards the Adventure Touring motorcycle market garner additional traction, more and more companies are adding these unique lids to their apparel lineup.Scorpion is the latest, which has unveiled the EXO-AT950 modular Adventure Touring helmet. The helmet can be used two different ways – as a full face with external peak visor attacked, or a full face without external peak visor for a touring helmet. And of course, the modular design makes stops and some treks through slow-off road sections more enjoyable.

Speaking of the EXO-AT950, Scorpion says “Our oversized eye port is extremely wide for greater peripheral vision and downward visibility, and the modular chin bar can be conveniently flipped up when you stop to get gas or ask for directions. The internal drop down Speedview sunvisor and KwikWick II liner will keep you comfortable all day long even as lighting conditions change throughout the day.“Additionally, the no-fog Everclear face shield can be removed and you can use the EXO- AT950 as a dirt helmet with goggles for off-road use. Three shell sizes made of Advanced LG Polycarbonate and dual density EPS, result in a helmet that is light weight, strong, and protective.”The Scorpion EXO-AT950 retails for $289.95, putting it on the lower price range of helmets with such features, and is available in three colors: Hi-Viz Yellow, Bright orange, and Phantom Silver.

Zero Electric ADV Bike + Al and Bridget from Throw Your Leg Over
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome to Motos and Friends, a weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Electric mobility is everywhere nowadays. Whether it’s a car, a truck, an assisted bicycle, a scooter, or any number of new innovations, the electric revolution is certainly here. In this week’s first segment, Nic de Sena took a ride on Zero’s recently announced new Adventure bike—the Zero DSR-X. There’s been a lot of hype about this new arrival on the ADV scene, and of course the questions are many. Nic talks to me about whether Zero actually have a credible, alternative energy ADV bike—or if the machine is just simply an empty promise.
In our second segment, I chat with Al and Bridget from ‘Throw Your Leg Over’. They took time out to record this episode from somewhere in the middle of Romania, of all places.
These interesting Aussies have traveled—and painstakingly documented—the thousands of miles they’ve covered riding the best roads and sights through Australia, Tasmania, Europe, eastern Europe, and Scandinavia, among other places.
