Get a better SHOEI, AGV or ARAI for the money.

I finally got to test one of these out, I was always curious if I could shave some weight from my RF-1100. I was disappointed.
Its as heavy as any of the good helmets (it probably seems light to the el-cheapo that most people are upgrading from). Its nowhere near the advertised weight and is within 100g of my SHOEI, which actually costed me a hair less.
Now, here is the kicker. The SHOEI looks and feels like it was built to last well beyond the warranty and has been certified to virtually every additional safety rating available. Its quieter, has better vents and the overall build quality is night and day compared to NEXX. They (meaning the 3 higher end helmets listed above) use more shell sizes, meaning you don't get a massive dome on your head like this one. The visors have real mechanisms instead of just a screw. I could go on, the pads are better. Ummm, better provisions for intercom...
I guess the one thing this has over those is you can say "OMG CARBON!" and youd look a bit less of a weirdo compared to someone who didnt have visible weave on their helmet.
So, unless you want to spend as much as or more money to get a vastly inferior helmet but maybe (if you have the right sized head) save 100g of weight then go for it. Otherwise go with the big dogs, they have been doing it longer and it shows in the final product.
No, I do not recommend this product.

REV'IT! Airwave Pants The perfect match for the REV'IT! Airwave jacket, these trousers are also great over-pants to wear on top of your jeans during summer commutes. The large air mesh panels allow for maximum cooling, but that's not all they're on and off in seconds, thanks to the long side zippers, which go all the way up to the hip. Reflective panels at the lower legs ensure great visibility at all times. Even more, the Knox Flexiform CE-approved armor is located in height adjustable pockets, allowing you to position the armour just the way you like it. Available in classic black or fresh silver. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester 600D , PWRshell 500D stretch, PWRshell mesh, polyester rib Visibility laminated reflection at calf Protection Knox Flexiform CE protection at knees ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit , regular Adjustability adjustment straps at waist, adjustment tab at ankles Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features easy entrance zipper at calf, adjustable protector pockets, short connection zipper, elastic at waistband Pockets slit pockets

If youre on a cruiser they might work. I was hoping for something mesh that was a bit better fitted than the rest and was hopeful since my girlfriend likes her pair.
Unfortunately they are just like everyone else, really baggy. If you are a 32" waist they dont make a pair for you, not even the smalls fit right. The legs are huge making them bulky and making the armor useless.
Because the placement of the armor is poor and its constant shifting its impossible to properly grip the tank. The interior zipper and velcro seems like a good idea for protection but its constantly snagging on the pegs/shifter/whatever.
It also doesnt really seem to shift much more air but that might be the fault of the aerodynamics of my bike.
I dont want to be too negative. They do seem to be a good attempt for the price, Im just disappointed because I was hopeful I had finally found something readily available in the US that wasnt for fat guys or kids who want JNCOs for motorcycles.
No, I do not recommend this product.
