One of our fab customers, Paul Todd, has sent us this review of his Nexx XD1, following two years of hardcore riding.
I’ve had the XD-1 for a couple of years now and it’s proved what a versatile helmet it is! It’s been used:
- in torrential thunderstorms touring in the Pyrenees
- on a 16 hour day off road day in the searing heat of the Sahara
- off road in Iceland through lots of river crossings
- touring in the Alps
- out on the trails in muddy Wales in the Spring
After a spill !
It’s kept me well protected from the elements, never steamed up, been comfortable at all times, gives a nice wide field of vision and is quiet even at high speed on the road. I also like the way all the inner liner comes out and can be given a good clean.
I’ve fallen off a few times off-road but so far have managed not to scratch it and it still looks like new!
Here’s a couple of pics, the first is doing a river crossing in Iceland on our way to ride the entire length of the Sprengisandur route and the second is on the edge of the Sahara in Morocco when I got caught by a flying rock just below my sunglasses (hence the slightly bloodied face!)
