Verified Customer Reviews for Nexx X.WED 2
Comfy and looks great
28 February 2024 by Jamie M
Love how it looks, super comfy and true to size. It's true about the sun visor coming down a bit short but honestly not a problem, I just rock the helmet a little forward if I really need to. Airflow seems adequate enough though I've not tested in the height of summer.

A great helmet that fits perfect. Comes with lots of extras and spare parts. Plenty of room to fit coms. Easy to remove the peek if you want to. I would recommend
Great if you have the neck muscle of Geoff Capes

Not so much a review but a first impressions opinion as I returned this helmet after trying on.
Upon trying the helmet on, it just felt too heavy on my neck and it felt and looked very bulky aesthetically.
I tend to wear HJC or Shoei (of Carbon construction if available in the model I want)
Aside from that the interior felt comfortable and the helmet comprises most of the features you would want on a "touring helmet"
Returns process was a doddle thanks to Sportsbikeshop's brilliant customer service.
Comfortable great fit

Not exactly a budget helmet but the quality shines through was perfect shape for my head never had that breaking in period and all the parts are tight fitting and good quality even comes with plenty of spares too which is a first for me

Sizing is about 2 sizes too small. But even if it fitted, this helmet is badly designed.
The internal visor switch is flimsy and looks unfinished with rough edges plastic. The internal visor doesn't drop low enough either.
The chin vent is very loose - so much that it doesn't stay open and oncoming wind would close it.
I've got no idea how this was awarded a 'best buy' status. I had high hopes for this helmet and it's turned out to be a waste of time. I'll spend a little extra on the Airoh Commander.
Sportsbikeshop as always, excellent service and returns policy.

Fantastic lid very comfy .comes with a lot of extra addons .only part I have to say to release the visor is a bit flimsy
Great lid, great service

As has become familiar now, my experience with SBS has been outstanding. From calling the helpline to get guidance on booking a helmet fitting, then the attentive (but not excessively so!) help with fitting in the immaculate store at Bristol and sorting me out with a tricky pinlock fitting (I was riding away with the new lid), everything was spot on, thank you. Nexx X.Wed 2 (random letter generator?) superbly comfortable and well kitted out helmet for the money. Love it!

Purchased the Nexx XWED 2 and although comfy, it is certainly not up to Arai Standards, the lining isn't as soft. I have 60.5 cm head and purchased a size Large, it was a snugg fit but it did loosen up after a few rides and now fits real nice. Great vison through the large visor. People mention about the clips for the removal of the Peak being soft, I agree, they are, but, once you get the hang of how to remove the clips they are not an issue, my helmet came with spare clips so all good. I found the front chin vent did not give the air flow I was hoping for in the summer months (for summer you are best off using the mesh insert rather than the rocker vent as it lets more air in). During winter I found that the standard rocker chin vent did not shut off enough air in the winter so you get the cold air coming through, best worn with balaclava or neck tube in colder months to cover your chin/mouth. With the top vents i didnt notice much difference in open or close but my motorcycle has a large screen so this doesnt help with venting. For those wanting to fit a Cardo Packtalk, I used the sticky mounting plate (as the clip mounting wouldnt fit properly due to helmet internals) and fitted the sticky plate just in front of the Nexx mounting plate, all fitted ok. one thing to note: if using the 45mm JBL speakers with the Packtalk Black, the speakers are to large for the speaker cutouts in the plastic trim, so you will have to open these up using a dremmel or something similar, or stick with the standard size packtalk speakers. In regards to noise, difficult to say as I ride a VRF1200x and anything above 70mph you get wind turbulence from the screen which resonates through the helmet (notice more when wearing ear pluggs) and this also affects your vision. (not so bad with the visor removed) this could be more down to my motorcyle screen though. so over all, an ok helmet but not exceptional.

Easy to see why Ride mag gave this a best buy rating, fit is definitely on the snug side but this makes it quiet on the road, it's not the same build quality as a Shoei but then again it's not in the same price bracket. This is a very good helmet with all the features you need for touring.

Been looking for an adventure helmet for some time now, tried lots on in sportsbikeshop. This one for me was the most comfortable. My head measures 55cm around with no hair so I ordered a small and a medium to try on. The medium is a perfect fit which is 57-58. The helmet is very good quality, the cheaper adventure helmets I tried had very flimsy plastic parts for the air vents etc, but this one is very well made. I was a bit worried about the noise due to the helmet having a peak but there was no need to be worried, it is very quiet with no issues. Overall, very happy with my purchase. Would definitely recommend, just order 2 or 3 sizes to try on before you buy.

I tested this out with a weekend camp and ride and so far I like it. The usual rubbing as head meets new padding, but it fits my fairly round head well.
Point of note, I broke the little tag on the left side of the visor very easily after fitting the pin lock. SBS kindly sent a replacement, which also broke instantly. I was being gentle with it both times. The locks that attach the peak are a bit dodgy too, and very easy to twist off and break too.

I wanted a good adventure helmet with an integral sun visor and it's surprising that most of them do not include this. The Nexx has not disappointed and is as good as the magazine reviews indicated. My only issue was that it's American made and I still had to go up a size, my head must be really big... just something to think about. Cheers!

First helmet of this kind iv bought first impressions are good feels comfortable . only used it twice so far . bit of adjustment on the peak sorted out what minimal buffering there was
all in all I like it and also the inner viser for sun is great one of the reasons I bought it

A really comfortable helmet

I decided to treat myself to a new helmet and this premium helmet from Nexx did not disappoint.
upon arriving with prompt delivery from the excellent service by SBS i could not wait to unbox and try it on.
The quality and premium look and build quality felt reassuring once on, but it requires a certain technique to remove it. Although this will will improve over time . as always great products and service from sportsbikeshop.
Great so far

I've put the helmet through hail, torrential rain and sun over the past few weeks, on both naked and adv bikes.
This is an impressive helmet. Noise is pretty good, as is airflow through the peak. This is my first peaked helmet and even on the naked bike the effect is minimal.
The range of extras/spares is great too.
Minus points - the visor hasn't been totally waterproof, and in very heavy rain it did let some in, but it was negligable, and not in the main field of view.
The front chin vent is too easy to close when opening or closing the visor. A very minor point, though, and if you need a lot of airflow there's a permanently open grill you can put in place.
Some of the fixings feel a little less than premium, which might be why there are spares, but I'm not going to be removing and replacing peaks or visors all the time.
Nexx t level.

The nexx wed 2 is my first adventure style helmet. I love it. My last lid was an AGV K3. It was good but not as good. This is more comfortable and more importantly more quiet. It also comes with an array of spare parts. Brilliant.
Proper adventure style helmet
13 May 2021 by Andy N
Really pleased with this purchase, my latest of many from SBS. Excellent value, fit and features. Very easy to install my Sena Evo comms kit. Rate this helmet much higher than the previous AGV lid.
Sizing is great too, even if you have a fat head like me! Highly recommend.
