Adventure Motorcycle (ADVMoto)May-June 2020
Weather happens; maybe you’re a year-round, all-weather rider and maybe not, but if you spend enough time on a bike you’ll find yourself in less-than-ideal conditions at some point. We’ve reviewed Scorpion’s EXO AT-950 modular adventure helmet previously and the Dual-Pane Outrigger model is a specialized version of the same great lid which now excels in cool, cold, and wet weather.
Since ADVMoto has previously reviewed the standard version, I’ll briefly review the overall specifications of both helmets and focus mostly on what sets the Dual-Pane version apart and my riding impressions. All versions of the AT-950 start with a polycarbonate shell in three sizes, with dual-density EPS foam for energy absorption, modularity in the sense it can be worn with or without both the peak and the face shield, and modularity in the sense the chin bar flips up to 12 o’clock to give you an open face during stops without removing the helmet. Amenities are rounded out by a drop-down sun shield, vents on the chin and top of head, pockets for Bluetooth speakers, and a soft, moisture-wicking KwikWick II lining. Safety is backed up by a DOT rating, but Scorpion does sell an ECE-rated version overseas; the U.S. versions come with just a DOT approval to save buyers a few bucks.
