Continuing the success of their popular XULT full face helmet, Switzerland based iXS releases their new, economy priced cross-over full face, dubbed the XACT. Priced at only $150 USD, the XACT shares many of the same features as the XULT, but iXS was able to significantly reduce the price tag with the exclusion of the XMATTER foam and Fiber Reinforced Polymer shell. In their place, iXS uses standard EPS foam inside a molded ABS shell. Features that carry over from the XULT are both the VORTEX in-moulded ventilation system and the EPR-emergency release system. Stay tuned from an in-depth review on the new lid, coming this summer. Full details from iXS below.

​iXS presents the XACT

With this release, iXS is launching its newest helmet development - the XACT. The XACT is based on the successfully introduced XULT cross-over full face helmet. It features a slightly reduced spec to address the consumer needs of price tag options. Therefore, the XACT is designed alongside the characteristics of the XULT but features a fully injected shock absorbent ABS shell. The compact overall volume keeps weight and rotational force on the low side. The rail based design and reinforced form increases structural integrity where additional strength is needed. A short style visor supports the visual field and reduces weight and leverage. Its featured VORTEX molded aeration system provides consistent airflow and cooling. An ergonomic padding system ensures comfort without inhibiting the airflow. The lining and padding is removable and washable. The EPR - emergency pad system allows for easy removability in the event on an emergency.

In addition to its regular size options SM, ML & LXL, the XACT comes in a youth option (XS) which fits the size range of 49-52cm.

The XACT helmet series meet the European EN1078 and American C.P.S.C standards as well as the ASTM standard for high-speed relevant front impact.

Available July - August 2016

A cross-over full face made of absorbent ABS shell material. It features a VORTEX molded aeration system that provides consistent airflow through the helmet and therefore crosses over towards the needs of enduro style riding and racing. The rail based design and reinforced form increases structural integrity where additional strength is needed. A “stubby” visor design allows for best possible visual field during competition or dirt jumpers performing tricks. It also reduces the risk of injuries when falling. Ergonomic padding ensures a perfect fit while also using the EPR – emergency release pad system to allow for easy removability in the event of an emergency.
