Scott Introduces New Stego Plus Helmet

Dec 9, 2020
by SCOTT Sports  


PRESS RELEASE: Scott Sports

Born from a passion for style and innovation, built with a focus on safety and functionality, the All-New Scott Stego Plus is our new helmet for mountain loving gravity and enduro specialists.

Always questioning the status quo by striving for perfection, the helmet comes completely redesigned from scratch for 2021. Functionality and the latest safety technology features wrapped in a modern design shell make this helmet your first choice for heading into stunning mountain bike adventures over the weekend, competing in local enduro races or throwing down laps on your favorite flow trails.

With class-leading coverage, a focus on protecting the head’s most vulnerable areas, and an integrated MIPS Brain Protection System, the Stego Plus ensures you can continue to push yourself with confidence.


Progressive Absorption Construction & Optimized Ventilation

Our progressive absorbing construction using EPS foam and PU pads provides better protection for low and mid-energy impacts. This combined with the MIPS Brain Protection System for rotational impacts makes the Scott STEGO the safest enduro helmet we’ve ever created.

The Stego makes those hot summer days feel cooler with massive air vents strategically placed across the shell, designed to guarantee optimal airflow at any speed.


Adjustability

Our 360 HALO fit system offers a huge range of micro adjustability. Find the perfect height of the rear ergonomic cradle while the helmet is on your head. We also improved its touch and feel with a rubberized ring for optimum grip when setting with gloves on.
Stylish and Convenient

The new Stego comes with a second visor featuring a GoPro mount. Storing goggles is also easy. Simply flip the visor up, place the goggles on the helmet and make sure the strap sits tightly on the back of the helmet.

 I like. I have one big problem though, as with all Scott stuff. My name is Scott, I'd feel like the special needs kid who needs his name on everything.

 Have you considered changing your name? I always liked Troy Lee.

A risky move. Or are you not a Gambler, Scott?

 How are you NOT owning all Scott gear??? I mean everywhere - trail, pub, formal occasions. . . I don't like their bikes, but if my name was Dale, I know what I'd have in my garage and closet.

 Rather nice looking, understated lid. Looks like it could achieve what all good lids should, namely, making the wearer forget it's even there.

 I want a review of helmets for those of us with not so much hair on the top and wanting to avoid sunburn.
These massive vents are awesome for cooling (especially as i live in a warm climate), but it also leaves big sections of your head open for sunburn.
Part of the reason I chose the Fox Metah helmet was it had big cooling channels but not so many slots that allow direct sun on to skin.
Can companies design helmets with this in mind?
Perhaps Reggie Millar can advocate on this point!

 I always wear a scull cap - the pearl izumi one
leaves your helmet less smelly over time as well :-)

 Ever since I discovered the cycling cap I've not rode without one. Great for redirecting sweat, blocking sun, and blocking rain.
  • 1 0
 The Bontrager Wavecell is great at cooling, it’s just soooo expensive.
The older Urge Enduro-Matic, with the 4 small holes for cooling, looks like it would be really hot, but, for a bald guy like me who sweats a lot (I drink coffee every day) it is still the very best helmet to wear on the hottest days.
It seems to me that the more vents, the more sun let thru, the hotter it is for bald guys. Any direct sun to my head makes it way hotter.

 Does it have fidlock? Also am I allowed to wear it when I'm not even riding?

 Given the regular recycling of stock phrases in MTB marketing, i am surprised i haven't read "...casual styling you can wear on or off the bike" in relation to a helmet.

 Can see in one of the images that it does not have Fidlock.

 What is the point of the visor if it is so high? Doesn't really block the sun rays.
  • 1 1
 No visor really does much for the sun tbh.
I think it was in a moto-related piece but it's actually to help prevent mud/shit/stuff getting into your goggles/glasses/eyes. Since stuff gets flung way up and forward from your front wheel because physics

Supposedly Razz

 Bought one of these, after being pleased with the previous model Scott Stego for the past many years.

And what a swing and a miss design and function wise.

For such a competitive market with so many great helmet choices, this could have been among the best.

First, when did visors stop being (at least partly) to keep the sun out of your eyes on morning and late afternoon rides?

When exactly were visors reduced to being enduro bro goggle awnings?

I thought something was odd about the visor in the pics, but thought surely Scott built in enough adjustment range to make it functional for both sun, AND a goggle awning.

BUT what you see in the pics is the lowest the visor can possibly go... a full 2" higher then the standard visor position on the previous Scott Stego - and any other helmet with a visor useful for blocking the sun.

In fact there are times near sunset when my current Stego, I'll loosen the ratchet and tilt the helmet and visor lower (the visor isn't adjustable).

The second fail? The part of the Boa / ratchet that cradles the back of your head is adjustable, a pretty standard 3 positions up and down so you can put the ratchet in the most comfortable position below the... apex at the back our skull, so the dial isn't right on top of it.

Pretty basic stuff and hard to get this wrong.

But there is a thicker part of this cradle - maybe its the part where the straps go through (I've already sent the helmet back...) In the highest position, this thick part sits right in one of the vent windows, allowing the cradle to float a bit and find it's sweet spot.

For all of the lower positions, Scotts designers created a small channel below the vent, and this channel is TOO SHALLOW to give the cradle the clearance that it needs.

So in the lower positions, this Boa / cradle now runs aground against the inside of helmet and creates a hot spot on the back of your head, making it super uncomfortable / unwearable, at least for me.

Which is sad for an otherwise perfect fitting helmet.

I was so excited to get this helmet, and really tried to like it, but ended up sending it back, having to eat the shipping both ways.

As someone who owns a Scott Ransom AND Genius, which I love, this helmet and buying experience was a total fail.

 this comment is funny because while i was learning how to bike years ago i was wearing a full face helmet and crashed, ended up breaking half of my tooth off. i had blue helmet paint on the leftover tooth stub ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ me and my mountain biking dentist have no clue how it happened

 Definitely a clickbait title, I was expecting lots of fins/plates sticking up from the top and a long spiky tail hanging off the back of this thing.

NOT impressed.

Well it is green and is supposed to be worn in the woods so maybe it should have been called the DoYouThinkTheySaurus?

 many 3D images and no real stones, since they talk about safety, and they are so convinced of the product, they could at least show some real tests and some certifications.
