Summary

For Motorbikes, situated on the Wirral, is run by a team of passionate bikers. We don't just sell bike gear, we actively use and test it. It's a great excuse to get out on the bike and do what we love best. As a result, we only sell kit which we think you'll equally love. It goes without saying that we only stock protective clothing which not only meets official safety standards, but gear which excels in the performance stakes. This approach has led us to specialise in Nexx helmets.Nexx are a Portuguese company, who sell 25,000 helmets in France, are big in the US and mainland Europe, but have only just started offering their helmet range to the UK. We first met them at the Motorcycle Trade Expo at the NEC in 2009 and we were immediately struck by the quality of their helmets. This quality has since been endorsed by MCN, who rated the Nexx XR1R Carbon as "The best road helmet we've worn" in their 5 star review (click to read the full MCN review).Manufactured in an ISO9001-certified facility in Portugal, Nexx helmets feature extremely high production standards, which is clearly evident in the quality of the materials used, such as their carbon fibre, but also extends to small details, such as the quality of the leather stitching and paintwork. They are ECE 22/05 approved for road use in the UK and the wider EU, and DOT approved for use in the USA. Whilst we're a relatively small company, we're also a good one and we work very hard to deliver the highest standard of customer service that we can. If you live locally, we're very happy for you to pop by, to try on a helmet, or just to cast your eye over them and have a cuppa. We're a friendly bunch, so if you have any questions about our products, or just want some advice, we're here for a chat. If you'd like to visit us, before you travel, please do give us a call to check that we have your size in stock.

“Fantastic service!”

Written on: 16/06/2014 by Mendozatj397 (1 review written)

Received a helmet with a slight fault, got the replacement shipped to Asia within 3 days of bringing up the issue! Ordered from them as their prices for NEXX helmets are 15% cheaper than buying them in stores here (price includes very fast shipping!). Brilliant customer service, very honest, friendly and fast responses. Seriously one of the best ecommerce companies I've ever dealt with. Won't hesitate to order my other helmets from them in future… Read Full Review

“Awesome Service From Sellers Who Actually Ride Motorcyles”

Written on: 17/04/2014 by 77RD400 (1 review written)

I ordered a NEXX XR2 Carbon helmet from Formotorbikes.com to be sent to me in California. The NEXX dealers are few and far between in the States, plus they didn't have the new model. For all I know, they could have been right down the street from me because the communication, shipping/packing and after the sale service was 5 star all the way. You benefit greatly from their experience as bikers who actually use the products. I had a question on how to change the liner. The enclosed… Read Full Review

Received exceptional service when ordering a Nexx XR1R Carbon helmet. Not your usual automated emails, but dealt with real human beings! They were very quick in confirming my order and the helmet arrived the next day, with free delivery. Delighted with the helmet too, it's very light, looks ace and all of my mates are jealous! Haha. Thanks ForMotorbikes, for the top service, I'll be back for some boots soon :-)… Read Full Review

“Nexx XR1R”

Written on: 31/07/2013 by Fredbon (1 review written)

Had this helmet in use for just over 4 months now. Very light, great visibility and vents have proven to work well in the recent hot spell. I have used the additional padding to suit my head shape but a little more guidance on this in the original packing would help. My helmet shipped with the 1st generation quick release visor. I found it was not always secure and relayed that to Formotorbikes, the original supplier. By return I received an improved fixing clip, which seems to be totally… Read Full Review

I purchased a carbon speed helmet fro for motorbikes and must admit it was a big decision. Being a devout shoei or arai fan for the last 15 years on bikes. Well I am happy to report my carbon speed arrived and the quality is excellent! The helmet is really light! The comfort is o a par with top brand lids and its lime your not wearing a helmet although you clearly are. It is quiet and slices throught the air with no buffetting . This helmet is amazing visor has quick release for… Read Full Review

“Excellent Customer Service”

Written on: 25/05/2013 by Kaluss (1 review written)

When I first heard about the Nexx Carbon XR1R i was intrigued and curious. Nexx is a smaller brand than say shoei and so we are limited in the UK in terms of stockists. The person we dealt with at ForMotorBikes (official Nexx UK dealer) invited myself and friends to come along to try the helmets on. The whole experience was exceptional! Very friendly, tailored to each of our needs and informative. He really knows about Nexx helmets, not just what is on the label but how it feels and performs in… Read Full Review

“Nexx helmet, perfect ”

Written on: 17/05/2013 by NorthernFlyer (1 review written)

I have to purchase most of my bike gear online due to living on the outer isles, helmets are always tricky. I had my eye on NEXX lids for a while as i knew others who have them and rave about the lightness. after a ton of looking i found ForMotorbikes a small company who offered quick replies to emails and gave me the confidence to purchase my new lid. from the easy online payment to popping the lid on for the first ride this company have provided updates on my order and support when needed… Read Full Review

“Excellent products and even better customer service!”

Written on: 22/04/2013 by YamRSixer (1 review written)

Everything to do with buying from this company was excellent, from the very competitive prices to the fast delivery but this all pales into obscurity compared to the amazing customer service! My thanks go out to him for his amazing help and for going above and beyond what was expected. Have already recommended this company to all my biker friends and recommend them to anyone reading this review. You will not be disappointed if you buy from these!… Read Full Review

“Outstanding to do bussiness with”

Written on: 07/04/2013 by Randall-12 (1 review written)

At first I was a little apprehensive ordering a product overseas. Things like money conversions, shipping times and communications. Only hours after I placed my order I got a email from [name removed] thanking me along with the details of my order and when I would receive it. When they did ship it I got another email with UPS tracking information and it was delivered to my house right on time. Once at my house I opened the box and inspected the Nexx XR1R helmet. It's even more beautiful than… Read Full Review

“WOW”

Written on: 29/03/2013 by Rossgo (1 review written)

So I was in the market for a better lid having a little bit of cash to blow on one especially when its a life saver! I wanted to buy something a little special and Arai and AGV were amoung my ideas of what i wanted. However i then got talking to a chap who had just bought a NEXX CARBON which i didnt even consider (because i didnt even know about this make) but he said it was top notch and that i should look it up as he was confident that i could easily find it online....he was not wrong!

“Great Customer service!!!”

Written on: 28/03/2013

I am always little reluctant about ordering from UK or from out of the country mostly due to the slow transit/delivery times.. But I wanted a good deal and they had the best price. I was expecting to get it in 10 days or so.. but WOW, they shipped it out fast and I got the item superfast.. faster than what I would have gotten in the states.. BTW I am in the US. On top of that, they have an awesomne customer service. Quick response, very accomidating. [name removed] was very nice to deal… Read Full Review

“Top class customer service.”

After scouring the Internet for a NEXX XR1R carbon Helmet, I found that each company/website was offering a 4-5 working days delivery time, which I wasn't impressed with. So I came across formotorbikes and e-mailed [name removed] to see if he could offer a more competitive delivery turn-around, to which he promptly replied via email offering me a 48 hrs free courier service to deliver my helmet.....absolutely brilliant! Great communication, competitive price and to me a very pleasent company to… Read Full Review

“Great Customer Support!”

Written on: 15/03/2013 by Jchuzhik (1 review written)

I got to experience how great customer support really can be, if done right! My order got compromised by UPS but the guys from ForMotorbikes worked on getting the issue resolved with UPS the whole way from start to finish. Each response was less than within 24 hours of me emailing them, sometimes making something like 5 email back-and-forths per day for more than a month. I really appreciated their courtesy and promptness. I have nothing negative to say, outside of hoping that the store could… Read Full Review

“Superb Quality Inside and Out”

Written on: 15/03/2013 by Vancealot (1 review written)

ForMotorbikes shipped this out lickity-split — no kidding! I got this in a couple days all the way in the US. Nexx helmets are going to go far. They are pushing the envelope on weight and style. This helmet, a XR1.R in medium is about 3lbs. — 1/2 pound lighter than the Shoei RF1100 I was considering...not to mention cheaper. This also features the fog eliminating extra visor and quick release for visor swapping. I got the Pearl White to match my pearl white 2010 Ducati Monster... color is… Read Full Review
