This year's BDR ‬ Fundraiser Ride is off to a great start!
We're not sure what Matt's got going on in this photo, but it looks like he and Brayde had a blast south of the border!
Our latest newsletter:
Our friends at ADV Pulse recently reviewed the new Zega Mundo ‬ panniers.
Adam Booth and the team a Motorcycle USA review the new Aventuro Carbon helmet.
Got a cold beverage?
[FONT="]The helmet shape and functionality was all designed in house by Touratech Germany and they contracted NEXX to build the helmet. NEXX took the design and built their own version of the helmet using the basic shape and structure of the Touratech Aventuro. The Aventuro Carbon has been built specifically for long distance dual sport touring, this explains many of the feature differences between the Touratech and the NEXX versions. I have not had my hands on an XD1 so I cant comment on it with 100% certainty but I will do my best.[/FONT]
[FONT="]The XD.1 has an internal sun visor that can be flipped down. This is not a feature of the Aventuro because the sun visor will become dusty and jam or scratch even when it is not deployed during off-road use. This visor and its mechanism also reduce the thickness of the liner inside the helmet and slightly reduce its ability to absorb energy in a crash.[/FONT]
[FONT="]The XD1 has a cut out in the outer shell on the left hand side to fit the NEXX communication system (similar setup to the Nolan and Schuberth helmets with built in com systems). The XD1 and the Aventuro both have molded shapes inside for ear speakers and a mouth microphone. Any clamp-on or stick-on communication system can be used on the Aventro or XD1 helmets but only the XD1 can use the NEXX communication system.[/FONT]
[FONT="]The Aventuro shell is 100% carbon fiber while the XD1 is not. The XD1 is much heavier because of the shell material as well as the sun visor and communication system provisions. The XD1 weighs ¾ lb more than the Aventuro Carbon in equivalent sizes.[/FONT]
[FONT="]The XD1 is about $200 cheaper than the Aventuro.[/FONT]
[FONT="]The Aventuro does have a goggle strap at the back of the helmet that is not a part of the XD1. The Aventuro also INCLUDES the pin-lock visor insert and the side base plates that are required to mount Quick Straps goggle straps. Those items are not included with the XD1 and cost about $100 to purchase separately.[/FONT]
[FONT="]The peak mounting hardware and side plate hardware is identical between the two helmets.[/FONT]
[FONT="]Let me know if you have any more questions, I hope that helps.[/FONT]
