Nexx XR1R Diablo Helmet
Great for the money
Was happy with helmet. Only had one issue. The model I got was an older one and had clips to hold visor on which one came of on second time wearing helmet. Contacted Nexx USA and they are getting issue solved for me.

Unique says it all with Great quality!
All my helmets in the future will be a NEXX. Worth the money well over the competitors that are twice the price and twice the helmet weight.

My first helmet and I love it!
I tried a lot of helmets for fit, weight, quality, style and color. Nothing beats the Nexx.

One of a kind!
I’ve had this helmet for about 6 months now and all I get are tons of compliments and on where to get one. First and foremost the helmet is insanely light and comfortable! It doesn’t even feel like you’re wearing a helmet. Of course it has all the full safety certifications and specs as well as just being a dynamic beautiful helmet. I’ve had only one Shoei helmet prior and my NEXX is killing it! It is on the pricey side, but it is well worth the money.

Coming Unglued - Poor Construction
I bought the Nexx XR1-R from Revzilla not long after this model came out. Comfortable, very light, reasonably quiet and excellent for long rides in cooler weather. But after less than three years of fairly light use, this helmet is literally falling apart. This weekend I removed the cheek pads to wash the liner and one of the inner pieces that is glued to the shell and holds the cheek pad in place via velcro literally separated from the shell (i.e. total adhesive failure) leaving behind several globs of poorly placed, dried-out adhesive. At the same time, the rubber molding which lines the lower front of the shell in the chin area also fell out. This, in turn, exposed the rear of the chin vent assembly which had two broken screws, and the entire front vent plastic assembly came off. The helmet has NOT been dropped or abused in any way. IMO, it is simply shoddy construction. No way a helmet costing this much should have multiple adhesive failures like this after only a few years of light use. Buyer beware: how will this helmet hold up in a crash???

ligth and nice helmet, but poor quality
The helmet is nice and light. But for its value, should be of better quality, for example the face shield does not have a good seal and with few and gently used, the logo is detachment

Most of the other reviews hit the mark head on... AND IT FOGS!
Very light, good looking helmet. Snug fit, with comfy lining keeps the helmet a bit quieter than my previous, but also a bit hotter. Vents are great on the top, but chin ventilation is null. Built seems ok, but I can see how the plastic vents could come apart.
It does fog a lot. I'm riding in hot SOCAL wheater and this will fog up like noone's business, didn't even know it was possible to fog this much. So that's the biggest minues, along with being a bit hot.
The light weight is great though, I can wear it for hours, barely feel it there (had a nolad n43 before which was also light but not this light). A bit of my previous helmet and bike follows for context. Overall good, but wish it was a tad quieter and a bit better venting.
Bit of background I'm pretty new at riding, currently own a 09 vfr. Previous helmets were the scorpion exo400, then nolan n43 - which is great and light and has great airflow, but is too loud with the vfr fairing throwing all the air right at my head. The n43 worked fine with my previous bike - a naked aprilia mana. If it wasn't for the noise I would like the n43 better than the nexx.
Side note: Really wished there was a way to test ride helmets for 20 minutes or so. They are really expensive is a tough to find the right fit for the right head and the bike.

Purchased this helmet after a lot of research. Coming from a half helmet I have to say this one is awsome!!! The style is perfect with leather wrap and the weight is very comparable to my carbon fiber half helmet. I would say this one is lighter. The helmet is very comfortable to wear and the air flow and noise level is nice. Would purchase again and would recommend this helmet to those looking. Comes with the pin lock system so that is one less thing to purchase. The Revzilla customer service is AWSOME I must add. Thanks guys.
