Icon Airframe vs Scorpion EXO-1100

I'm trying to get some input on a new helmet and I'm pretty much decided down between these two (unless I decide to say F' it and order a Roof Boxer V8 but it's a couple hundred more $$$ after shipping).
They're right around the same price point, the Scorpion has a drop down sun visor so I'm leaning a little more towards the Scorpion.
I'm in Atlanta, GA so I need it to flow a decent amount of air and want it to be fairly quiet.

Has anyone tried both or have long term reports on either of these? Any help is appreciated.

I am looking at the ICON airframe myself. The Pleasuredome model is very James Bond like with lots of hot chicks

The Scorpion is well made and a real bargain but it doesn't flow much air.

Damned Dirty Biker!

That's weird, I had read that it flowed a lot of air. I'm adding the new Icon Airmada model into the mix. It's a little cheaper ($190) and seems like it's just as good as the Airframe.

I had a Scorpion once, it was heavy and I didnt really care much for the fit. I have a Torq now. light comfortable, and has bluetooth. wasnt to expensive either.

I have the EXO-1000 and I love it. It is a bit heavy, though. But airflow is fine, noise, good, and the shades and the 80's pump-to-fit are pretty cool features. The 1100 is a slight update of the 1000. I'd recommend the Scorpion.

EXO-1000 OK helmet overall, good fit for my head, I loved the pump fit until it the pump broke. The interior shades don't go all the way down, so there is a line on you sight. Very annoying. I have used it for 3 years and now it looks like its 20 years old. Aging very bad. All the seals are falling apart, The vents are broken, The inner snaps came out. The bottom area material cracked. I had helmets for longer that held way better than this.

I have an EXO1100 And EXO500 / THE 1100 is lighter ,but the 500 flows more air
I use the 500 more often , the weight difference isn't that much
both good helmets for the coin , and I luv the flip down sun visors !!

Why tiptoe through life , Only to arrive safely at Death
