750 was built on the 700. I raced them for awhile and had no issues. They work well.

Stay away from the 1000 for track.

It's a lot heavier with the built in tinted visor that drops down. The weight difference will be felt at track speeds and when railing all day.

I had the EXO 1000 and yeah it was pretty darn heavy. Go try on the 750, I know Loudoun Motorsports Leesburg, VA 1-800441BIKE started carrying Scorpion when they changed their store around. They are in leesburg if you feel like driving from woodbridge, also colemans lists Scorpion helmets online but dunno if they are in-store.

Coleman does carry Scorpion helmets in-store, and I'm pretty sure I saw 750s there.

Not sure what you plan on using it for; but i have an EXO-400 for general street use and really like it. Its inexpensive, comfortable, and quality (SNELL 2010)

Also -maybe a weird comment but- this helmet seems to be physically smaller than many helmets; meaning i don't get the 'bobble head' feeling from it... *The EXO-400 was produced with 3 Shell sizes opposed to many helmets that only use 1 or 2 shell sizes. (EXO-750 was produced with 2 shell sizes)

Just some input to think about.

I have an 1100 for the track. Works great. The sizes are a little smaller than my older AGV and Arai.

Wanted to use it for general street use. Saw it was on closeout and thought it might be a good time to replace 7yr old Vega helmet.

Yea, after 7 years its probably a good idea to replace... If you can try one on before buying the closeout one, i'd recommend it. Every helmet fits people differently...

I bought a closeout Bell Helmet online once; after trying it on i did not like it and immediately sold it... Live and Learn. EXOs are good all around helmets though for sure.
