Great helmet, very light. Great helmet, very light, well made quality feel to it. January 27, 2014
Best helmet I've ever owned!! Due to neck and back issues, I researched this and other helmets for about 8 months prior to making the purchase. This helmet is hands down the best one I've ever had! It's EXTREMEMLY light, quiet, and really stylish! The coolmax liner is a plus, as it is removable and washable. Plus, it comes with several extra pads you can put inside to make it fit your head better, regardless of head shape. The viewport is really wide and it comes pre-fitted with a pinlock insert. If you are looking for the an extremely light and stylish helmet, this one is certainly worth the money! January 20, 2014
mixed feelings I had this helmet for a year. Initially loved it, not so much now. The good: the helmet is very light, with a huge field of vision. You can wear it for hours and not even feel it. With some other brands, removing even a good-fitting lid after a couple hours' ride gives a sense of relief and liberation. With Nexx, you simply don't notice the lid. The bad: The plastic clip-ons for visor quick-release mechanism are flimsy and will eventually wear out: there's a tiny internal detent that needs to be pushed in to change a visor; if not pushed it, it simply rotates with the shield allowing you to open / close it at will. Being made of cheap plastic, with repeated usage it will wear out and your windshield will pop off when you simply want to open it up. There is an inexpensive replacement kit available, but once that mechanism was replaced, my helmet became terribly noisy, without apparent cause. We inspected and reinstalled the kit several times; it is a pretty foolproof operation and everything fits perfectly, yet the helmet noise and whistle are terrible. We went to great lengths trying to eliminate it, but to no avail. It is a fairly expensive lid, and requires Pinlock lens for optimal operation, and now, a set of earplugs. I still like it, but I think there are better values out there now. October 16, 2013
Expensive, but in my opinion worth it! So my Dad always says "Cheap head, Cheap helmet" and I definitely agree. This thing is INSANELY light. Which for me, was the main reason for getting it. I have neck problems and having even the next lightest helmet is too much. I was worried about noise level and protection but the noise level is really pretty amazing for such a light helmet. Super happy with that part. The airflow is WONDERFUL. The visibility is awesome. I can literally see all the way to the left and right of me without having to turn my head too much. Aerodynamics are stellar. No real drag or having to push my neck forward. Also when checking lanes it doesn't drag or pull. Overall incredibly impressed and I well should be for spending this much money!!! I've had several comments on "wow, cool helmet" already when getting coffee etc. The styling is pretty rad and mean looking! September 24, 2013
Light, expensive, comfortable, and loud Punchline: Once the helmet was broken in, I stopped feeling it on my head. For my head shape, the helmet is simply that comfortable. The XR1-R C is amazingly comfortable, with great padding and a very wide viewport. It can use more ventilation in the summer, but once the temperature drops below 80 it is cool enough without any tendency to build up funk due to perspiration. I used it down to single digits and it was warm enough for a half hour highway commute. The chin curtain and neck roll are somehow perfect at both temperature extremes. I got the helmet with the early version of the quick release visor and the visor quick released itself once too often. NEXX was great to deal with, replacing the visor and the locks, with the new lock resulting in a quieter visor, but no obvious detent for the "barely cracked" position. The new lock works perfectly with no tendency to work itself loose. The visor fogs with much too little provocation (think gnat flatulence on a windy day) , with the pinlock visor mostly fixing the problem at the expense of extremely poor night visibility and a reduced field of view :( Without the pinlock, the visor is nigh invisible - for the five seconds it takes for the condensation to appear. The aerodynamics are great, with no tendency to shift at speed, no matter how the helmet is turned. The finish (I have black) is easily marked, and the second x (from the nexx logo on the back) is peeling off. I cannot bring myself to care. Bottom line: absolutely no regrets! September 17, 2013
Awesome First Helmet Amazing design, very light and comfortable. Love the design on NEXX helmets, it's worth the money, get it and you won't regret it. August 6, 2013
Light, comfortable- great field of view. Would be perfect if a little more airflow and more shield choices- June 27, 2013
Very Light My wife has neck problems and after a few hours ride her neck hurts and has to be rested. Since buying this helmet she hasn't complained about her neck hurting at all. One day we rode over 400 miles and at the end of the ride she said that she was doing fine. Even though I don't have any neck problems I will be buying one also, worth the extra money. June 24, 2013

A shopper asked: I have read a few sources that say the Nexx helmets come with a visor already set up for pinlock inserts. However, there is no mention of it in the product description. Can you tell me if this is true? If not, is there a pinlock visor available? Jul 19, 2011

Feloracing: In the case you want to make sure if they do have it ... Either search on their website (which reflects their availability up to date) or give them a call which will save you a lot of time. I was able to obtain my face shield (XR1R Dark smoke with pin locks) at the store without any problems since I live in Philly.

Hope this helps !

A shopper asked: Could you check and guarantee the helmet weight before you ship it to me?
It shouldn't be more than 1250grams.
I have ordered this one before(not from you) and got a 1400 grams helmet.

Chris K: This depends on the Shell size of the helmet. Helmets are weighed as a standard at one size (usually Large) but larger or smaller shell sizes can be more or less. There isn't any variation within a shell size, so every Large will weigh the same one to the other. Sep 23, 2011

archercc: Pass, its as heavy as any good helmet on the market but cheaply made. The advertised weight is the smaller shell ONLY without pads, visor, etc in it. So unless you plan on riding that way it wont be any lighter than a better helmet. Dec 10, 2012

Parker F asked: If I buy this helmet in size small, which shell size will it have? It says there is two shell sizes and I don't want a size small helmet with a shell that is the same as medium or even large. In short I want a helmet that has the smallest shell available since I'm ordering a size small.

Peter H: Great helmet but the visor retainer on one side keeps "unwinding" through just a few cycles of the normal open and close process and the catch flings itself off and you're left in the middle of nowhere with a flapping visor.

Replacement catches cost only a few dollars but you have to remember to carry them with you and then go through the hassle of fitment, which should be really simple but invariably isn't.

Otherwise a wonderful, lightweight helmet
