NEXX’s First Modular is a Good One
Hot off the heels of my SCHUBERTH C4 Pro review is NEXX’s first-ever modular helmet, the long-awaited X.Vilitur. Priced at $499, it sits in the competitive mid-range modular segment, and like other touring-focused helmets, offers a host of built-in features intended to increase its value, curb appeal, and functionality.
NEXX is new to the modular space, but they have spent the better part of 20 years building a reputation as a solid brand that manufacturers quality helmets. wBW’s coverage of NEXX helmets tells a story of a “new” brand coming into its own. Go back to 2009 and read Rick’s initial coverage of NEXX and you will identify a recurring theme: these helmets are uniquely designed, made well, and are appropriately priced.
Today, we live in an era of $700+ premium modulars and one where high-end materials, such as carbon fiber, are becoming found in increasingly affordable mainstream helmets. While the X.Vilitur I have here is not carbon fiber, you can opt for the X.Vilitur Carbon Zero ($679) if you want the look but don’t want to pay the usual carbon fiber premium. The last carbon fiber modular I had in my hands was the AGV Sportmodular Carbon, which rings in at $750- a fair bit more than the NEXX.
So, when our contact with NEXX sent over the X.Vilitur and asked me to put it through its paces, as I was all too eager to get started.
