A good looking helmet is a tricky thing, because it is basically worthless if it doesn't function perfectly. The XG.100 from Nexx Helmets is just that, a good looking lid that functions incredibly well, for a good price.

The all new X-Matrix shell helps this helmet drop some weight while maintaining its structural and protective integrity. Meeting ECE and DOT standards, you'll never find yourself in a situation that this helmet isn't qualified for. A soft hypo-allergenic lining keeps your head sitting comfortable and wicks sweat to make sure you stay dry as well.

A single vent in the front does a surprisingly good job at getting air to your face, and a removeable chin piece is included to regulate the wind getting to your face.

The design was a collaboration with a local garage, which included several other graphic helmets as well, all just as good looking as this one. Check the link above to see some of those rad designs.

With the praise for the awesome design and lightweight shell come a couple criticisms. The eye hole is rather small, not blocking your vision, but making more head motion necessary to see behind you/ to your side if you're not always using your mirrors. The snap-on visor is super-hip and adds a lot to the vintage look of the helmet, but if you want to lift it or move it for a moment with the three-snap visor attached
