Scorpion EXO is a brand known for great-looking equipment at reasonable prices. Their 2020 products have generated a lot of interest as much for the upgrades as the most recent additions. Featuring everything from trendy adventure touring helmets to practical gloves, the new Scorpion EXO riding gear is attractive to all types of riders. The company’s latest color schemes and patterns could even convince you to buy some new stuff without looking at the features. Check out this sample of Scorpion’s most exciting new products:
Dual-sport equipment is becoming more popular as riders combine the speed of the street with the thrill of off-roading. The result is helmets such as the EXO-AT950, a compromise between peaked off-road head protection and full-face designs. It features a polycarbonate shell and dual-density EPS liner for DOT-approved impact absorption. The ventilation system provides airflow to keep you cool on summer days.
With the peak on and the eye shield off, you’re guarded from roost and ready for goggles. Remove the peak and add the face shield to improve aerodynamics and reduce wind noise. If you enjoy cold-weather riding, consider getting one of the models that includes a breath box and aero skirt. Scorpion is so confident in the performance of this helmet that they offer a five-year manufacturer’s warranty.
In many ways, the EXO-GT920 is the street version of the EXO-AT950. It offers the same protective shell and liner with the flip-up chinbar for modular wear. Comm-ready speaker pockets are ideal for Bluetooth communication devices or listening to music. Scorpion’s three shell sizes make it easy to find a model that fits you while shopping Scorpion EXO riding gear online. The flow-through ventilation, adjustable cheek pads, and washable/removable lining are also the same as the EXO-AT950.
The differences come with the lack of the roost peak and that the helmet isn’t designed for goggle use. You still enjoy the backing of the five-year manufacturer’s warranty.
The Stealthpack feels like the jacket designed for secret agents and superheroes. While it looks like a normal jacket, a 20-liter backpack is concealed in the rear panel. In case you don’t fight crime, the Stealthpack is also handy for commuters and long-distance riders with six total pockets. Protection comes from a 600D polyester shell reinforced with CE-certified Level 1 armor. Dark colors are excellent for spies trying to blend in, but this jacket makes sure drivers can see you with reflective material on the shoulder piping.
Covert Waxed Shirt
The Covert Waxed shirt is another motorcycle top that’s gone undercover. Beyond the motorcycle modifications, this is a waxed shirt to protect against wind and precipitation on your rides. People may mistake it for a normal work shirt but its 12oz denim that’s been shored up with 165G Dupont Kevlar. If you want more than fabric shielding you, there’s also elbow, shoulder, and back pockets for optional Sas-Tec CE armor. This is an outstanding option for when you want something lighter than a jacket that protects better than cotton.
Abrams Riding Shirt
Along the same lines, the Abrams Riding shirt is another choice that’s lighter than leathers. The cotton chassis is midweight but 600D polyester covers all your vulnerable spots. Just as with the Covert Waxed shirt, you can also add elbow, shoulder, and back armor. Underarm venting provides better airflow for warm weather while forearm and bicep adjustments let you tailor the fit. It doesn’t have the storage of the Stealthpack, but five external pockets and a concealed pocket let you take your valuables with you.
The gloves that share the namesake of the Abrams Riding shirt are budget friendly with solid offerings. Constructed mainly from goatskin leather, they use mesh for ventilation and padding at the knuckles, thumb, and palm for extra strength. These gloves also incorporate accordion panels and four-way stretching to ensure you have full mobility for small adjustments on your bike. They’re also comfortable between the soft leather, cushy mesh, and outer sidewall comfort seaming.
For a few dollars more, the Gripster gloves pack in more features for V-twin and sportbike riders. They’re still made with goatskin leather, but the top-grain selections provide better feel and durability. Scorpion also reinforced at-risk areas with padding on the knuckles, thumb, and palm. Stretch panels improve flexibility at your joints while unlined fingers allow for full use of your hands. The Gripsters are also backed by a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Klaw II Gloves
The Klaw IIs get their name from the molded protectors that run along the pre-curved fingers of the gloves. Matched by molded knuckle armor, these are big upgrades even before you factor in the leather construction. Designed to fit, well, like a glove, the neoprene paneling in the wrists increases your range of motion. Simple hook and loop closures keep them securely on your hands.
Cool Hand II Gloves
Leather gloves have unmatched toughness but let almost zero air inside. Scorpion created the Cool Hand II from breathable mesh overlain with leather where you need it most. This gives them versatility with superior protection that’s not limited to the winter season. The pre-curved fingers and palms reduce riding fatigue for your hands. NightViz reflective piping provide extra visibility when you’re on the road in the dark.
These are among the best values of the Scorpion EXO riding gear on sale, with ride-ready gloves available for under $30. Rather than toss out cheap hand protection, the Scorpion included practical details. Molded protectors and leather palm panels make for surprisingly strong gloves considering the price. Creora inner fingers and two-way stretch back paneling keeps your hands flexible even on long rides. Overall, the Skrubs are entry-level gloves that still offer quality.
