I have the XG100 ¨Devon¨.biltwell gringo s (have a few).
love them. only downside is not a great shield seal so a lot of air gets through (and probably water too if caught in the rain).
feels nice on a nice warm or hot sunny day, but when it's cold, it's freezing. wonder if anyone here has a nexx xg100 helmet? been looking at them and like how they look (similar to the gringo s helmets) but seem like they may have a better shield seal. plus guessing a better quality and safety rating. (a lot more expensive than the gringo's)
for some reason i was thinking about that old peanuts movie "you're a good sport charlie brown" and always remembered how at one point charlie brown lost his helmet and had to make one out of a pumpkin.
thanks for the review.I have the XG100 ¨Devon¨.
The visor seals is ok (though i would not want to go through a heavy strorm in it). But since it doesn´t use a normal ¨stepping¨system, its a PITA to use in stop start traffic if you want to open/close it quickly.
It has a very narrow field of vision both horizontally and vertically. A big no-no in city traffic and commuting!
Also, alot of wind gets in from the large chin/neck opening and mouth vent which is always open. So on cold mornings you´ll need a good neck warmer.
The interior is very, very nice. Soft to the touch and a first class place for your face and cheeks to be.
I would say that sizing-wise, the helmet comes up a touch big. Maybe suited to a slightly rounder shape head.
Helmet shell only comes in one size. Not good for people with S-M size heads.
Paint finish and overall quality is excellent.
Weight: spread evenly and feels much lighter than it really is.
Sum it up: I would say that the Nexx XG100 is a nice weekend helmet for spring weather riding and lovely to have in the collection, but too compromised to use on a daily basis.
Would i buy it again?? No.
Why? I MUCH prefer the Bell Bullitt. If you could close the top air-vents on that helmet, it would be an almost perfect retro helmet for the Bobber!
looks similar to the helmet dave franco wore in the movie "nerve".My Ruby Castel Louis Lumiere
