RDR's 2018 Season Helmets

What shoes are to some people, helmets are to me (I have more than one). I started looking through Google images and found these helmets.

The cool designs originally drew me to them, but as I read about their products I was intrigued by the light weight carbon fiber and forward thinking communications support. I hadn't heard of the brand before, but found that they are pretty well known in the European scene.

RDR Review Compare to Bell Carbon Race 4:44 minutes

This video compares the NEXX XR2 carbon fiber helmet to the Bell Carbon Race. In 2018 RDR teamed up with NEXX North America for the season and Larry wore their XR2 helmets on the track. This video features the NEXX XR2 Carbon Pure, Acid, Torpedo, and the Fuel and includes lots of photos and videos of each helmet in a 360 rotation of the helmet with the shield down and then up. Larry usually puts his logo on the chin of his helmets, but that and the tinted shield are the only helmet modifications.

XR2 Fuel

This season's matching bikes really got me thinking that I'd like to add a white based helmet to my helmet stable.

XT1 Carbon Zero

This is one of the street helmets I'm using with my Ducati. I also plan on using these with the built in XCom to talk to folks while teaching them how to ride.
