Interesting. My experience is very different. That's the one weak spot to me. Since brand new, I've had trouble getting one side of my shield off. The other side seems to function fine.

I called Scorpion, and to their credit they sent me a new side plate, but that didn't fix the problem. I just find the release mechanism to be very fussy. I do think Scorpion suffers (or hopefully used to suffer) from poor quality control. They get mixed opinions online, people complaining that it doesn't seal well while other people say their helmets seal fine.

According to some online video reviews I've watched, the new release mechanism is an improvement, but again, do those guys ever say anything negative about a product?

Wish I knew someone who owned one so I could have a closer look.
