Nexx XT1 Carbon Zero Helmet
The Nexx X.T1 combines the comfort of a touring helmet and the light weight construction of carbon fiber with the ease of adding the NEXX X-COM Bluetooth Communication System. The XT1 is equipped with an upper air vent with two input channels with three adjustment positions that are easy to operate even with gloves. The Easy Flow air channels in the EPS combined with the chin guard vent ensure efficient distribution of fresh air around the head. The four air vents , two side and two rear, extract the hot air from the inside. The result is a quiet and cool helmet. The rear spoiler integrated into the shell ensures a smooth airflow, eliminating a large percentage of the upper drive wind and reducing the drag force at high speed. The result: a smoother and less tiring ride.

Reviews & Questions
There are a few things that irritate me about this helmet though. First, it could use a couple more vents, maybe a couple on the visor like my Arai Signet-Q. The visor on this helmet is difficult to open with one hand, as another reviewer also mentioned, but its doable. My main issue with this is an extremely loud whistling sound that's inside the helmet when riding with the sun visor down. I've narrowed it down to a hole on top that is exposed when the sun visor switch on top is pulled forward, air seems to flow through that small hole causing a really loud noise no matter what speed I'm going or the angle of my head.
I've contacted Nexx about this and their no help and actually kinda rude. They claim this is the first time they've heard of this issue and its not covered under the warranty so I'm unable to return/exchange it for another. All in all I wish I hadn't spent $600 for this and the pinlock insert.
Shop for a another brand.
Then the worst of it... the first ride! At 50MPH I thought my bike was about to explode! There was this loud constant trumpet sound that left my ears ringing...."Oh no my new bike is messed up!" NO, ITS THE BLEEPIN HELMET! Playing with the visor slider gets rid of it...at least till it happens again. As if the overall noise level wasn't bad enough, I have to deal with this? Really? It's like the Slider for the sun visor should be labelled Temporary Trumpet Mute! The solution, sunglasses instead of the sun visor! This is the LOUDEST #$%^ helmet that I've ever owned! It's also the most comfortable....Bleep it! Guess i have to order new cheek pads!
Let's start with build quality. After I put it on twice, the fog guard fell out. I put it back a few times, but after realizing that it doesn't stop the shield from fogging up anyway, I just gave up on it.
Speaking of shields, neither the built in sun visor nor the outer one are optically correct, making glancing around the wide edges really distracting (it looks like a fun house mirror around the edges). This is particularly horrible when riding at night, as the light from the car behind you gets refracted by the spot where the shield mounts onto the helmet and forces you to look 3 - 4 times to make sure you have plenty of room to merge. That is DANGEROUS! But wait, there's more! To open the shield you need to put a LOT of force on a button thats fairly hard to reach in front, and then EVEN MORE force to lift the shield. I am not exaggerating, the strength and coordination it takes to do this is unsafe, especially if it needs to be done quickly, like when your shield fogs up, a bug splatters on it, or some other road hazzard comes up. The only way this button would be acceptable is if the shield was spring loaded, and pushing the button popped up the shield. This is not the case.
Next, let's talk about the notches / positions the shield can take. There's closed, half open (putting the edge of the shield DIRECTLY in your line of site), and fully open, which completely blocks the top vent. Did anyone actually test this before putting it into production!? No city position with a slight crack? Seriously?
Which leads me to the next portion, the vents. I'm convinced the chin vent does nothing, since most of the air manages to come up from the bottom, despite a chin guard that looks like it's going to fall off any minute. The top vent is actually quite nice, but only when you're tilting your head a little forward (unnatural on a straight up bike). The lever for the top vent AND the lever for the sun visor both whistle like crazy. Just try to keep sane on a 3-4 hour ride.
Which brings me to the sound levels. Some people have reported it being loud, but really that was an understatement. There are 2 problems: 1. very poor sound isolation and 2. very poor aerodynamics. You hear the sound of the road and EXTRA sound of wind from the shape of the helmet. For a helmet this price, this is unacceptable.
Now let's talk about build quality: The inner liner is held on by a set of snaps and tabs. One of the tabs on the sides routinely falls out, every single time I put the helmet on and puts a ton of pressure on my ear. This may be a defect, but it honestly doesn't surprise me because the design lends itself to it falling out this way. I noticed it day one, but just put the tab back in and went for a ride. I regret not having returned it to Zilla on day one. I have kept the helmet in it's protective bag whenever it's not on my head, and have primarily used it to commute. Today, a piece of white color foam fell out from somewhere. I've only had the helmet 1 month. WTF?!
Looks: Carbon fiber is cool right?! Yeah, usually it is... EXCEPT WHEN YOU COAT IT WITH A CHEAP LOOKING GLOSSY LAYER. The picture really make it look much better than it does. What were they thinking?!
I liked the idea of the integrated bluetooth, but the module has been sold out for months. Maybe it's my blessing so I don't blow any more money on this helmet.
And now for the Pros:
The ratchet strap instead of DClips is nice.
But Leon, I heard it's SUPER LIGHT, isn't that great for long trips!? No, no it is not. What they don't tell you is that weight balance is more important than total weight. My Icon alliance, which was half the price and WAY over weight feels just as heavy on my neck. I splurged all this money because of how the weight was advertised. Stay away, buy an icon, an RF1200 instead.
I will try to return this to Nexx via the mfr warranty due to the tabs and whistling, and will then beg Zilla to take the replacement helmet as a return. I hope they do, because this was a total waste of money.

Overall a great helmet with a few issues I can live with, but once again for the price there should not be any.

Then the bluethooth by Sena arrived. Instillation leaves wires everywhere and getting the pads back into the helmet is troublesome. The sticky for the mic doesn't stay attached. Had to get out the super glue which sux.
All in all for this kind of hard earned cash I'd totally stay away from this helmet and the bluetooth unit.
Antony, sometimes I wish your reviews were more truthful than purely intended to sell product.
Get a different helmet!!

This helmet is super light, and very aerodynamically stable. I use it primarily on my daily commuter naked SDR, and at any speed I am willing to go whilst commuting, it has one of the most stable feels in the air-stream of any helmet I have used, and I've used a few.
But, it is LOUD. You will want ear-protection, unless you've already passed that necessity...
The included and removable chin guard will probably be required when the temps drop, but while it's nice out, volumes of air come-up from under the chin bar. It's nice, though I imagine some folks who's eyes dry easily will find the airflow a bit too much; you may keep the guard on in all seasons.
Occasionally, the slider channel for the internal sun visor will take on air and provide several different honking or whistling variations that can be both startling and annoying, though - so far - a simple open and close has remedied this behavior for me every time.
The angles of the front visor near the pinlocks cause distortion and reduce overall horizontal visibility; near the peripheral it can induce distracting visual noise. Not a deal breaker, but I feel like this could have been better executed.
Which is my point, at $550:
1) This helmet should not have external features that randomly create ridiculous noises
2) This helmet should have a 100% un-distorted field of view
3) This helmet should be quieter, mainly by improving the execution of the neck-roll interfaces between the rear and side segments
At $350 this would be a pretty good purchase. At $550, you are probably buying for the style, because there are plenty of less-expensive helmets that executed the techincal aspects better.
I'll point out the few issues I've noticed:
1) The mechanism to flip the internal visor down is a bit awkward to manage at first, but the bigger annoyance I've noticed is when the internal visor is down and you are travelling at higher speeds you will get a very audible and persistent "goose honking" noise when you turn your head slightly to the right. Somehow the air gets into the open/close switch mechanism on the top of the helmet which causes the noise. I have to constantly jiggle the internal visor open and closed until it goes away; which happens a lot and can be heard even with earplugs or playing music.
2) The quick release chin strap works really well, I love being able to connect it with just one gloved hand...but you don't get the metal locking tab to secure lock it on your bike...although I probably wouldn't leave a carbon helmet unattended on my bike anyhow.
3) jamming all the X-Com gear into the helmet takes a lot of patience and planning. It's not as quick and easy as the videos make it seem. There's really only 1 way to get it all in there and still be able to get the padding snapped back in.
4) Helmet liner pad snaps & tabs - the typical push snaps work well, but they also use this really bad tab system where some (not all) require you to slide it then pull - do it wrong and you will break a tab. The tabs are also really hard to reconnect if you have the X-Com system installed as all the wiring gets in the way.
5) I'm still trying to find the sweet spot for the X-Com speakers so I can hear music when traveling at higher speeds. Sure it has integrated sockets for the speakers but I can barely hear my music at higher speeds, like trying to listen to AM radio in a wind storm. Going to try and put a spacer between the helmet and speaker so they sit closer to my ears.
6) Nexx isn't readily available in Canada (that I could find) so Revzilla is one of the only options. Request USPS delivery as Rev's default is UPS which tends to have (much) higher brokerage fees.
Sun visor is great, main visor is a bit difficult to operate with one hand but manageable.
Build quality is excellent. Aerodynamics are among the best I have owned - feels smaller than it is.
Overall a great helmet.
If they drop the price under $150 this helmet would be worth considering. But at $550 this is a piece of junk and there are many better choices.
Having said all that, it will work fine as a touring helmet; it's only "downside" being that it is loud.
Double stick tape helps keep anything from moving in the back shell or even some bits of foam. It wont move around much anyways.
If your going with another com system it's the old clip onto the lower rim or double stick tape to the side with a wire going into the padding. I got inventive with the Sena 20s and mounted a modified clip version into the XCOM door.
I basically cut the XCOM cover in half and trimmed some of the molding and bolted the base unit to the inside with a bit of metal and self locking nuts. Almost looks like it was made for it. I did this on the Grid vr. I'll be doing it to this one as well and I will snap some pics of the install.
