2018 Season Gear

Each year, I always like to look at the motorcycle market and see if what products I'm interested in. These are some of the gear additions I made In 2018.

What shoes are to some people, helmets are to me (I have more than one). I started looking through Google images and found Nexx 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 COM support. I hadn't heard of the Nexx brand before, but found that they are pretty well known in the Eugopean scene.


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

I really like the graphics on this helmet and it matches my 954RR nicely.
XR2 Vortex White

I like the graphics and another white option to match my scheme for 2018.

My wife and I have these for the street. I'm currently using the built in XCom to talk to her while teaching her the basics to learn how to ride.

See my Nexx North America profile page for my helmet details, photos, and related videos.

GP Air Track Vest

I've heard about this technology and always thought it would be nice to have, but the suits were priced too far out for me to consider. When I saw this vest, I thought it offered me a middle price point that would get me extra protection that could really make a difference.

See my Helite page...

to see photos with my suit and a video where I demo the air bag deploying... this thing opens quick!
