(Lake Forest, CA August 18, 2010) In antiquity, the Griffin was a creature that had the head and wings of an eagle and the body of a lion. Since the eagle is the king of birds and the lion is the king of beasts, it seems to make sense for Scorpion’s EXO-400 crown to get the Griffin graphics as the top selling lid in the line. Called the “Rapture,” the newest EXO-400 is emblazoned with the raptor of mythology.
Combining regal good looks with race-ready performance, the Rapture starts with a proven Snell/DOT-approved advanced polycarbonate shell. The aero-tuned design went through extensive wind tunnel testing to achieve minimal headshake at max speeds, resulting in a comfortable and quiet ride. However bold the graphic Griffin may be on the exterior, it is the internal features that count, such as the state-of-the-art dual density EPS liner designed to absorb maximum energy.
Another unsung hero of the Rapture EXO-400 design is Scorpion’s KwikWick® washable moisture-wicking comfort liners and the fully adjustable ventilation system, also born of the wind tunnel testing. Speaking of cool, the SpeedShift® quick-change system allows the faceshield to snap into place in less than 10 seconds — without tools! And there is no fear of fog here, as Scorpion’s EverClear® shields are your best defense against fogging.
The winged Griffin graphic comes in a choice of sublimated silver, black and red colorways. Despite being a crown fit for a king, there is no need to raid the royal treasury as the Rapture is priced so even a pauper can be protected at just $149.95!
MSRP for the Rapture EXO-400: $149.95
Sizes Available: XS-3X
