Judging by the pictures, it doesn't look like it has either. First pic shows a lot of foam with no slot for a drop down shade, and I don't see pinlock knobs in any of them.

This was a pre production helmet. The production helmets will have the pins.

I saw no mention of actual weight on the website. Any idea how this compares to the Arai XD4 as far as weight and does it flow more air?

I just checked this helmet out yesterday at Seattle IMS, very impressed with the weight... or lack there of.

It made the new "Bell Adventure Helmet" feel like a brick.

Just can't decide if i want the Touratech or the Nexx xd1.

I read that Touratech claims it is manufactured by a premium helmet company in Portugal. Nexx is based in Portugal. You do the math and decide if you want to pay the TT premium.

That's what I'm thinking as well. The touratech IS made by Nexx. Just wish I could get my hands on one here in the states to feel the fit and finish before I drop the coin.

This is good information. I'll have to do some research...

Just an FYI... I sent an e-mail to Nexx USA last week and received a very prompt reply. They plan to release the XD1 in the US in late March or early April of 2015. That is worth the wait for me.
