This is a replacement for my nearly 5 year old Scorpion EXO-700, which wasn't that bad at all. The main reasons for choosing the Nexx and not a Shoei or Arai, was the large eyeport and light weight.. And boy they weren't exaggerating. Most of my riding is city streets with some expressways. Head checking and overall visibility is outstanding. It's pretty amazing how just a few millimeters really opens up the view on a helmet. When I put on my old helmet for comparison, it was like putting on blinders. With the Nexx XR1R, I feel more aware and therefore comfortable when riding. I'm waiting for the dark visor, but my wire frame sunglasses slide on with minimum fuss.
My head is a medium according to their chart. The fit, at first, was tight but not cramp. After a month or so, the helmet doesn't even feel like it's there. That and it being so light. It does comes with adjustment pads but i haven't found a need for them, YMMV.
As far as for bad things, it would be the visor. It will fog up the instant you stop ( it's about the 60's as of this review). The EXO-700 wasn't this bad. Even with the visor cracked open it still fogs. Obliviously once you're on the move, it's not a problem. If it really starts to annoy me, I'll get a Pinlock. But for now I'll just control my breath at stops. Air flow seems decent especially from the chin bar. There doesn't seem to be much air flow through the top vents, probably because the liner blocks the vents. As for noise filtration, it's slightly quieter that my old helmet.
With the expanded view and light weight, this helmet is a excellent step up.
Yes, I recommend this product.
