But, the main question I will answer in this review will be: Is this the best full-face motorcycle helmet for you? Let’s find out!
Lightweight Composite Shell
Three Shell Sizes
The helmet comes in three shell sizes, which is about an extra shell size than a lot of other full-face helmets in this price range. The more shells a helmet has, the better it will fit closer to your head.

Low Profile Design
The Scorpion EXO Covert FX has a low-profile design, which is essential for a full-face helmet that focuses on the classic drag race vibe style. The helmet’s EPS is low profile, making it a very compact helmet.
DOT and ECE 2206 Safety Certification
The Covert FX is DOT and ECE 2206 safety certified, making it street-legal in the United States and meeting the new safety standards in Europe.
The ECE 2206 safety standard is higher than the previous 2205 standard, requiring more rigorous testing, including four drop tests instead of one, a high velocity, low velocity, and an angular momentum test.
Smoke and Clear Face Shields Included
Fit and Comfort
Intermediate Oval Head Shape
Removable and Washable Liner
The helmet’s liner is removable and washable, making it easy to freshen up once in a while.
Double D-Ring Closure
Switchable Chin Bar Ventilation
The ventilation in the helmet comes in the form of a louver design on the chin bar. The chin bar ventilation is switchable from the inside of the helmet, making it functional in both warm and cool weather.
Passive Exhaust Vents
The exhaust vents on the Covert FX are passive, and there is no way to seal off the rear of it completely.
However, if the front is open, the excellent vacuum exhaust system will suck out the hot moist air from inside the cabin and keep you cool.
Exterior Mounted Pivot System
Quick Release Face Shield Mechanism
Easy Shield Changes
Once you master the shield change mechanism, changing the shield is quick and straightforward.
