The new Nexx XG100 Bad Loser Helmet is an addition to the rapidly expanding genre of full face helmets with retro design queues. Each Bad Loser weighs in at a relatively light 1200 grams and has a shell made from multiaxial fiberglass, 3D organic fibers, special aramid fibers and carbon reinforcement. The design was developed in collaboration with Maria Riding Company – a custom motorcycle garage well-known for their vintage design flair.
Nexx ship each new helmet with a matching 3-snap peak visor and removable PC Lexan shield, the lining is removable/washable and the Bad Loser meets or exceeds the ECE 22.05 (Europe), the DOT (USA) and the NBR-7471:2001 (Brazil) certification standards.
