Scorpion Helping Cops Keep Cool Heads

Lake Forest, CA July 11, 2011) Scorpion has busted out with a “Law Enforcement Edition” of their popular EXO-900 helmet. Available in the standard “H” pattern, the new police special meet the specifications of most motorcycle officer programs in the nation. The added benefit is that the versatile modular helmet now makes for a 3-in-1 option for officers in the field.

“We had several jurisdictions approach us about offering a police helmet which would combine the features of a full-face helmet with the convenience of a modular/flip-up style helmet,” says Scorpion’s National Sales Manager, Jon Eide. “But they also needed a lightweight ¾ open face model for parade duty… which meant they had to have three different helmets.”

The EXO-900 meets all these needs… and more. A polycarbonate composite shell is combined with a state-of-the-art dual density EPS liner. This advanced composite shell is designed to function in three distinct modes: full-face, open face or flip-up. Speaking of flip-up, the entire chinbar and exclusive no-fog EverClear® shield section flips up as one piece. As an added benefit, Scorpion’s built-in retractable SpeedView® internal sun visor can be used in all three modes.

“Whether it is swapping out the outer faceshield or the entire front half of the helmet, the EXO-900 makes its transformation from ¾ open face to full face modular and back again in less than 10 seconds,” explains Eide. “Best of all, these changes can be made without tools!”

 

This shell meets or exceeds all Department Of Transportation FMVSS-218 and National Institute of Justice standards (not to mention ECE-22.05 certification for you civilians). As an added benefit for the police, the EXO-900 is also communications-ready for most radio systems.

Helping the cops keep their cool is Scorpion’s exclusive KwikWick® washable moisture wicking comfort liner. Another innovative inner is the AIRFIT® cheek pad inflation system to ensure the perfect fit. All good news, but even better news for those departments on a budget is the price. Unlike many modulars on the market, the ticket for the EXO-900 is under $280, including Scorpion’s full three-year warranty.

EXO-900 Law Enforcement Edition sizes XS-XXXL

MSRP: $279.95

Tornado Puts a Twist on Traditional Motorcycle Jackets

Scorpion’s Top Textile Jacket

Lake Forest, CA June 23, 2011 — Scorpion’s Tornado textile jacket puts a new spin on the traditional motorcycle jacket, combining top features with incredibly low prices. “This jacket has it all… waterproofing, CE-approved armor, you name it,” says Scorpion Sports Inc. National Sales Manager Jon Eide. “The range of features we have incorporated into the Tornado for a price well under $200 really does blow me away.”

 

Starting with durable 600-denier nylon, the outershell is then treated with polyurethane for true water resistance, no matter how inclement the riding conditions may get. Internally, the fully removable AirGuard liner helps prevent wind chill from becoming a factor. When things do warm up, Scorpion’s AirVent™ ventilation system kicks in. Consisting of two zippered high-flow air intake panels in the front of the jacket and two matching rear vents, airflow over the body’s core is maximized when the panels are unzipped. Should it get chilly, simply zip-up to seal out any unwanted airflow.

Speaking of sealing things up, Scorpion’s exclusive ExoStitch® seams not only improve the seal, but also keep cuffs from fraying or seams for giving way. “It is this attention to detail that really differentiates the Tornado,” claims Jon.

“Sure the AirVent system is cool, but this is a serious riding jacket, so we didn’t skimp on the EXO-Tec CE-approved armor inside the shoulder and elbow pockets,” adds Eide. Further enhancing the safety aspect is a full-length back protector pocket, complete with a P.E. temper foam insert.

The Tornado offers its own unique styling twists and technical features, including adjustable sleeve tension straps for a custom fit… and to keep things from flapping in the breeze. Large zippered hand-warmer pockets and NightViz reflective panel front also add to this jacket’s functionality.

Men’s Sizes S-XXL MSRP: $189.95 in Black, Red or Blue
