The Nexx XG200 Flat 6 is a modern helmet – with retro styling cues that’ll look right at home on a vintage motocross bike, a scrambler, or well-worn R 80 GS. Nexx is a European company that still makes all of their helmets in the EU with a strong focus on high build quality and premium materials.
The Nexx XG200 Flat 6 Motorcycle Helmet
The XG200 Flat 6 helmet family all use the same X-matrix shell – a proprietary combination of fiberglass with organic fibers, aramid fibers, and carbon reinforcement. This allows a very high level of strength and resistance to object incursion, with a lighter weight relative to a traditional fiberglass shell.
Inside the shell you’ll find an impact-absorbing EPS foam liner, with a final layer of soft padding with breathable and anti-allergenic (removable and washable) fabric lining. The total weight of the helmet is 1200 grams, that’s approximately 42 ounces, and each one comes with a removable sun visor/peak that attaches courtesy of 3 snaps.
The face port has a wide, open aperture to allow excellent vision and airflow, both vital for those southern California desert races, and there are two shell sizes to ensure a less bulky fit for those with smaller heads.
The Flat 6 series is made up of 3 unique colorways based on the XG200 family. Each feature a prominent “6” on the side, which can function as your racing number should you happen to find yourself taking part in vintage scrambles or enduro racing.
