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.

“Warning ”

Written on: 12/09/2018 by lvHardy396 (1 review written)

Hi boys and girls, do NOT buy from these people, they will take your order, after you’ve paid they will cancel your order, and initiate a PayPal refund, right before the money should be refunded to your bank, they cancel the refund process, so you can’t ask for PayPal refund because refund had already been processed. After they take your money, you will NOT hear from them, no matter how many emails you send, they will not answer your phone calls, the number on their web site is a fake… Read Full Review

Good luck with your refund. I had to wait for two whole months for the money to come back. Formotorbikes.com is a certified cheater and looks like they have no money left in their accounts.

Please also be warned that they issue an e-cheque which is basically the electronic form of a physical cheque. They issue it and on the day before it's payment date, it gets cancelled.

Absolutely frustrating and no amount of profanities are enough for these useless people. If I ever was in UK, would walk into their office and confront them face to face.

Wish I had seen your review before placing an order with this company. Their e-mails are now coming back as undeliverable so I suspect they may have gone under. So starts the long process of trying to recover the money!

I feel your pain. Hopefully you paid via Paypal and are covered under their buyer protection.
Request a refund and start posting public posts on their facebook page as well as message them on FB.
It has taken more than two months for my money to come back.

You are not alone my friend, keep pushing them.

“Happy International Buyer”

Written on: 09/04/2018 by John_E (1 review written)

A Huge Thank You from The USA! I had been wanting to order a new Nexx helmet whose ship date kept being pushed back due to distribution issues locally. After Googling around to see if I could order it from Europe/UK, I came across ForMotorbikes and reached out to them on Facebook. Not only did they reply immediately, but they were also incredibly friendly, helpful, professional and diligent in getting me my helmet quickly. Long story short, here I am with my new helmet over a month before… Read Full Review

I ordered an item that was out of stock. I was able to cancel my order and refunded right away.

All my questions we answered quickly, they were very helpful with everything and I am very happy with my purchase and the service I received. I will definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone… Read Full Review

“Most helpful customer service I've come across.”

Written on: 17/12/2015 by EbayT (2 reviews written)

I've made 3 purchases so far over a couple of years. If there's anything to discuss I get a personalised complimentary email followed by despatch note email with tracking info. I recently purchased a new release helmet and was kept up to date throughout the progress. The tracking details are very straight forward too, packaging has been spot on too. Each item has a delivery note with basic returns procedure noted so if necessary there wouldn't be the long process of finding out how to… Read Full Review

“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

“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
