It would have been easy to stick one of those famous Japanese helmets onto this list for cool Father’s Day gifts, but there are many other players in the field of premium helmets. Some of them, like this Scorpion EXO-R2000, won’t hurt the bank account nearly as much. Starting at $369.95 for solid colors, the EXO-R2000 will give dad the same protection Alvaro Bautista enjoys each time he lines up on the MotoGP grid. In fact, Bautista provided much of the input for the 2000 during its design phase.

Featuring Scorpion’s proprietary Thermodynamic Composite Technology, its shell is formed from a five-layer blend of Aramid, fiberglass and poly-resin fibers to provide great protection. Fit is enhanced thanks to four different shell sizes for virtually any head out there. In addition, Scorpion’s cheekpad inflation system is also a neat feature to help customize the 2000’s fit even further. The emergency release system is a vital safety feature normally found on much pricier helmets, while the inclusion of a dark visor with every EXO-R2000 makes the price of entry a little easier to swallow.
