I am finding this helmet (in its tryout period) is mashing down my hair at the forehead, a precursor to a painful hot spot. I've had this happen with other helmets, but not Scorpion.

Which 3/4 helmet do you use that does not press down on the forehead? I'd like to try that one myself.

One thing I know is that not all helmets work for all people. So if that's the case for you, then you are right to try something else. I've had success with Arai and Shoei 3/4 helmets only. I don't wear other brands. They're a bit more pricey but you get the extra level of protection from these well-made helmets, as well as the extra level of fitment that's favorable, I believe, with these two brands.
These are the three helmets I've reviewed:
Arai CT-Z
Arai SZ/Ram III Although no longer made, it speaks to features and quality found in other Arai 3/4 helmets.
Shoei J-Cruise

Helmets with internal sun visors are not SNELL-approved, any of them. Neither are modular helmets. So price has nothing to do with the DOT rating only of this helmet. You might see ECE ratings on these types of helmets, but usually only on European helmets.

Just the info I was looking for.

I have this helmet -- just bought it in May -- in neon yellow. I love it, especially the clear shield. It's light; and airy. However, Im seeking a replacement from Scorpion, which they will do, because the internal sun visor kept getting stuck inside the helmet or fell off the internal tab on the left side of the helmet. There is some wind noise, but than i expected that with a 3/4 since i normally wear a full-face.

The only other downside is it's a bit difficult to one-handedly open the face shield if you want to speak to your riding bud at a red light. There are two tabs on either side of the bottom of the shield and you need to lift each tab in order to lift the shield. It's hard to do it with one hand if the other is holding in the clutch. You usually do this with two hands simultaneously. Another good thing is if you're riding in a group and you lose those behind you they can see your noggin in the distance and catch up.
