Well, if you want any information, I guess you've got to go look for yourself.

Here is some more poop on the hat:

Technical Features:
» ATR Shell (Advanced Thermo Resin) (In other words: Fiberglass)
» ECE/22-05
» Soft anti-sweat and anti-allergic fabric inner lining
» Removable and washable lining

Available colors:

Grey.Black | Black.Orange | White.Black | Black.Black - Black lining

Cream.Brown | Black.Brown - Cream lining

Blue.White - Blue lining

Pink.White | Choc.Pink.White - girl black lining

» Micro-Metric buckle
» PC Lexan Shield sunvisor 60%

Available size: XS to XXL

Acessories: scratch resistant Clear visor, sunvisor 80%, fixing visor system screw set, complete comfort padding.

However, one must go to nexx-usa.com to find a Dealer. There is one in Florida. Fort Myers, Florida, Dealer, New, Used, Scooter, Moped, Piaggio, Vespa, Tomos, Parts, Service, Financing. Georgia - GoGoEcoMoto.com. California has six!

Apparently the 'open face' model is popular with the scooter set, as most dealers appear to be Vespa stores.

They come in a plethora of color schemes, one of which is sure to match your favorite arm chaps.

I'da thought 'rotary molded plastic' too, but they claim they meet ECE/22-05, and I don't think a plastic pot would do that.

Could be wrong! Certainly wouldn't be the first time!

You're probably right about the roto-mold process, but the "Thermo Resin" part is just a fancy way of saying "we got these-here plastic beads, then melted 'em an' made us a helmut".
