Video Reviews
Hey guys this is Reuben with Competition Accessories and welcome to our video review of the Nolan N91 helmet. This is a modular helmet with a poly-carbonate shell from Nolan. Modular means that it is a flip-up helmet so you can bring up the chin bar to make it easier to talk to other people, drink, or smoke if you smoke. Few different notes about the chin bar mechanism itself with the Nolan you have a dual release there is a lever underneath the bottom of the chin bar that you have to pull forward and that makes this tab stick out on the front and you squeeze them together to actually get this to open. This is a safety feature so the chin bar wont and cannot open up on your if you don't want it to. They also have a lock on the side of the chin bar here that you can engage and that prevents it from closing and it locks it into place. Also on the side of the helmet here is the lever for the vision protection system which is what Nolan calls their internal drop down sun visor. It is far enough forward so if you do wear glasses it is not going to get in the way of those. Taking a look at the interior it is a clima comfort interior which means it is moisture wicking and it is nice and comfortable fabric. As far as the sizing and the shape of this helmet I typically wear a medium and to me I felt it was narrow towards the sides of the face and jaw. They give you a nice padded neck roll and it creates a good seal to block any unwanted wind noise. A chin curtain is also incorporated with the helmet as well. Nolan uses a ratchet style chin strap which is very popular over in Europe which you can adjust the length of the chin strap to get a customized fit. Lets talk about ventilation on the this helmet and that is something that they have definitely improved in the N91 and this helmet replaces the N90. You have a chin vent that is going to direct air up onto the face shield to prevent fogging in the shield if it is cold outside or may be rainy. You also have an intake vent at the top which is operated by a slider switch. The rear spoiler is interesting because they have incorporated it into the shell and it is open. The vents on this helmet help give it a real nice sporty appearance and it is going to help keep it stable at speeds. Now I mentioned anti-fog and even better Nolan is including a pinlock insert in the box as well so remember the pinlock is an anti-fog solution it creates a dual pane effect between the outside and inside of the face shield. With that internal sun visor you shouldnt have to remove or replace the face shield very often and if you do it is very simple and straight forward there is a button on the side and you just push that down and pull forward and you can see it pops right off. We will go ahead and weigh the helmet on the scale here and it weighs right at 4 pounds, typically with modular helmets they do tend to gain a little weight due to that drop down internal sun visor. Little bit more on the heavy side for the helmet. You can check out the Nolan N91 on our website at Competition Accessories.

Hey guys this is Reuben with competition accessories welcome to our review of the Nolan n86 which as you may figure is the replacement for the n85 this is a full face poly carbonate helmet with an internal drop down sun visor very popular feature these days and it actually includes a pinlock anti fog insert in the box with the helmet which we will talk about in a second first things first lets throw in on the scale to see how much it weighs it weighs 3.65 pounds so over 31/2 pounds not making it an ultra light helmet by any stretch but not overly heavy especially in terms with helmets that have internal drop down sun visor by nature those typically weigh a little bit more you are looking at a helmet that is 100% made in Italy it has that Nolan fit and finish and quality that we have come to expect now speaking of the helmet itself the visor system that you get and the vision is great obviously with having the internal drop down sun shield its super convenient your going to be able to take this helmet you dont need an extra face shield to go with you whether its day time or night time or anywhere in between in any kind of change in lighting conditions and you will be able to adapt to that and you will be able to operate that by a little slider right here on the side of the helmet its a very smooth operating it requires very little pressure on the lever and it should be very easy to find after you have ridden with the helmet for a little while it will become second nature to reach up and use that lever here on the side of the helmet its a very smooth operation and it goes far enough forward to where not going to be hitting your eye glasses or touching your nose or anything obviously it depends on your face and everything it seemed to work really well for me you also have slots specifically for eye glasses so if you are an eye glass wearer this is very comfortable to wear with eye glasses and we talked about the pinlock insert it includes you can see the you can see the unique shape of this pinlock and if your not familiar with the pinlock shield or insert we have a full video on the system basically what it is its a secondary shield you are going to install inside the face shield of your helmet and what it does is create a dual pane effect so you have a small bead of air in between the outer shield and the inner shield which gives it some insulation from the elements which really does a great job at preventing fog this one might look a little bit yellow thats simply because it has their protective film on it but still it will be totally clear once you remove that film it installs between the two posts so its a pinlock ready shield with a pinlock insert already in the box ready to go now if you were going to remove this face shield its a little bit different of a system you have a button here on the side that you have to push once you push it you can remove the shield and then you can replace it by pushing it down until it clicks so pretty straight forward and easy shield changes although you wont have to do that very often maybe just to clean it once in a while or to install that pinlock insert it does have a nice locking mechanism here right in the front in the center and thats where you have to reach to open and close the shield that might take some getting used to if your used to having a tab on the side of the shield this one is right here in the center whats nice about that is its ambidextrous you can use your right or your left hand depending on if your sitting there holding your clutch or your riding with your hand on the throttle you can still operate your shield and you push it down and that little latch is actually going to lock it down the face shield giving you a better seal around the gasket which helps keep the helmet a little bit more quiet and then you just have to push up on the center there to get the shield open you can see it does have detentes throughout the range so it has a nice sitting position just a little crack if you want just a little bit of air coming up the front and then you have detentes pretty much throughout the range of the shield opening you also have some ventilation in the chin bar its going to direct air right up on the face shield again preventing fog kind of like the defrost on your car when you slide this up you can see it tilts back the vent openings there which allows air to come through and in the top you have these chimney vents you can slide these open very low profile switches on the sides the vents themselves do stick up in the wind quite a bit which is going to bring air down into the shell of the helmet but it also might add a little bit more wind noise since there sticking up in the wind some but thats the trade off your getting a lot more air flow for a little bit more wind noise then on the back you have a rear integrated spoiler with an exhaust vent built in as well so your going to get some air flow and get that warm out out of the helmet which will keep you nice and comfortable during the warmer weather taking a look at the interior this has a nice bright red material which is kind of unique and you have some reflective material across of the back of the neck roll which is going to light up nice at night keep you visible you also have a climate comfort material which is going to be anti bacterial and moisture wicking which going to keep you comfortable in any kind of situation and a micro ratchet system it is very common in Europe obviously this is a European type of helmet whats really great is its easy to operate even with your gloves on if you ever do the routine with throwing your gloves on before you put on a helmet and you have to pull your gloves back off you dont have to worry about that with these you still can get them on and off with your gloves on so thats nice you also have a built in chin curtain so you can prevent wind from coming up underneath if you dont want that it is prepped for Nolan n-com communication system you can see that there is a plate for that on the side of the helmet and its integrated really nicely with the helmet they have done a great job of giving you the speaker pockets and places to route the wires inside just pop that plate off and you will be able to install the Nolan n-comm communication system to have some music while you ride or to communicate with a passenger or other riders while your on a bike you can check out the Nolan n86 on our website at competition accessories dont forget to rate comment and subscribe to our YouTube

Hey what's up guys this is Reuben from Competition Accessories welcome to our review of the Nolan N34e Open Face Helmet now this helmet is a fantastic value at around 185 bucks is what it goes for on our website it comes with a lightweight polycarbonate shell this one here weighs in at about 3.25 lbs and if you take a look at the profile they've incorporated a very nice aerodynamic shell so it's going to flow through the air nice and clean. In addition to that it comes with a very aggressive ventilation system. Obviously as an open face design you're going to get plenty of air through the front of the helmet, but up here on top you'll see that they have a nice large ram air scoop. You can close that by sliding the switch forward if you slide that back it's going to allow a lot of air to come down inside the helmet, and there are actually air channels inside that are going to allow that air to circulate throughout the helmet, and if you look at the back you'll see that behind this rear spoiler there's a very large exhaust vent on either side of the helmet here. So those little fins,as you ride an area of low pressure is created, and they're going to help draw that warm air out of the back of the helmet, which is a really effective way of keeping you cool and comfortable in warmer conditions. For cold weather the N43e is actually a very nice design as well, and that's thanks to the full coverage face shield on this helmet, it extends down nice and low and it has a really nice design feature on the bottom that allows that air to get pushed around the side of the helmet without swirling up underneath the shield and into your face, which can lead to your eyes tearing up, and just keeping you more comfortable at speed. On the inside there is an internal sun visor that you can drop down, and that's going to give you some additional eye protection, and obviously keep you comfortable in bright conditions. You can actually exchange that out for an amber shield or a light blue shield if you want something that's going to work better for dark conditions. That's definitely a very popular option, and it slides with just a simple slider switch on the side, so it's very easy to operate, even with gloves on. Now, I have another helmet up here on the table, and the reason for that is I wanted to show you another option that you have from Nolan. This is the N43e Trilogy Helmet. Now this helmet, is the same as the N43e, but it gives you a whole bunch of other additional options that do not come with the normal N43e. First things first, it gives you a removable chin bar. That's a very nice feature for those of you who are riding in cold and wet conditions, or if you sometimes want that additional protection of a chinbar, this helmet includes it and it is removable, there are two latches on the sides you can pop it right off just like so, so it's essentially the same helmet, but it comes with some additional features. It includes a pinlock shield in the box, and it also includes a visor that you can swap out for the face shield. So you can remove this faceshield, and install just a simple visor peak. We have a full video review on this helmet, so if you're interested in the details of the N43e Trilogy, it goes for around 80 bucks more than the standard N43e but it includes a lot of extra things in the box, so just wanted to show you that that is an option for you. Back to the N43e, most of the other features are going to be the same between the two helmets Includes a Clima-Comfort interior, which is a moisture wicking interior Micro-Lock retention chin strap, so this is a ratcheting style chin strap, there's a red tab that you lift to undo the chin strap. What I like about that design, is you can do it up even with your gloves on. So if you forget that you've got your gloves on, you pull your helmet on, you can still do up your chin strap real quick and easy, and they have tested these to be just as strong as a standard d-ring. Interior as I mentioned is moisture wicking, it has their Clima Comfort lining. The other thing that's great about the N43e is it's designed to work very seamlessly with Nolan's N-Comm Communication System. There are speaker pockets built in, and there's a plate that you can remove right on the side of the helmet. Pop that off like so, install the N-Comm Communication System, and that's going to allow you to communicate with other riders that use N-Comm, and also stream music to your helmet, gps directions, anything like that. It includes all of the accessories, and ports that you can use to install boom mic, speakers, and everything like that, so it's going to integrate really well with the helmet. Lastly you'll see that they give you a nice neck roll around the base of the helmet here that's going to help prevent wind noise from generating around the base of your ears and they give you a nice bit of reflective material at the back of the helmet as well just to increase your night time visibility. So hopefully you enjoyed the review here of the N43e,it's a great option from us here at Competition Accessories, very popular for a lot of people. Jump on our website and read the reviews.

    N-Com B1 review - K1200LT guy   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent sound quality at speed, piece of cake to use, unobtrusive on the helmet
    Cons: [None]

    The N-Com is the best I've tried so far. Far exceeding both the Sena and Scala top of the line offerings that I've had previously, not to mention that it is completely within the helmet, so you don't have a giant tumor sticking on the side of your helmet like you do with the others. Communication at speed with another rider is excellent. The volume goes up to a level that is far above the Sena or Scala's, so having a conversation at 80mph is no issue at all.Extremely easy to use, the buttons are perfectly sized even with glove use.Highly recommended

    The best for your Nolan helmet - JeanPhi   PR Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Easy to install use
    Cons: Not cheap One need to get used to the controls. Only works on N series Nolan helmet.

    Nolan's B1 is all you'll need to ride with safety and with comfort. I ride solo, so this is the best model for my ride. You will have all the features you have on your mobile phone iPod with Bluetooth, except to initiate a call well, that's not safe anyway, to be honest. You can pair any of your devices, but only one at once. Ex you can't have your phone and iPod communicating to he B1 at the same time. Normally, you can have music downloaded to your phone while enjoying music, if you receive a phone call, the music will be paused and then by pressing the center button on the B1, you can answer said call. The quality of the sound and how the other party on a phone call hears you is very good. You need to be agile with your hands, in order to install the unit on the helmet the cable routing may be tight but not impossible. At first, you need to get accustomed to the three buttons locations in order to learn witch one is witch. Practice makes perfect. I'm enjoying mine, for sure

    Excellent product - Philbytx   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Easy installation, good sound quality.
    Cons: None really...just have to learn the button beeps

    Took me all of 30 minutes to install in both our Nolan N103's. Before receiving them, I went to the Nolan site and downloaded the N-Com Wizard enables you to fine tune the units and download any Firmware Updates and both the brochure and instructions, so I had a good idea of the job. Only thing I did differently was use some thin velcro to attach the battery holder to the inside of the helmet lining. Turning the unit on and off correctly requires you to, initially, do it with the helmet off. Listen to the beeps from the unit to ensure that it is properly turned off. The instructions say 3 seconds and 4 thing to do is to watch the lights on the unit and listen to the beeps from the speakers. Now have it down.... All in all, very pleased with the N-Com, no problems at speed at all.

    Ok at best - Clay   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Fits nice sound great
    Cons: Cable connects in a bad place likes to unplug. Needs to be voice activated

    I had a scala rider and liked it a lot better it was a lot more hands free. This does fit in the helmet nicer the scala rider and the voice activated is much nicer. If this was voice activated I would say this is a good set. Hope they change that.

    Cali Central Coast - Sandy   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good sound
    Cons: instructions confusing

    Love the ability to listen to music via bluetooth, sound is very good. The instructions are confusing and incomplete. Had to figure out how to use the system by trial and error, hence the 3 stars instead of 5

    Incredible - Plzdvm   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great clear sound, easy to operate, easy to set up, easy to install Nolan 104
    Cons: None for me

    I have little to compare it to, but this unit preforms beyond my wildest expectations.The FM radio can be set up on line but the option to tune into the strongest signalChanel feature is awesome.Received my first phone call at 65mph, incredibly clear at both ends, and ridiculously easy to access the phone and get back to the radio.If you consider a Nolan 104 which is also a great helmet, but consider sizing up it runs small this integrated blue tooth will be hard to beat.

    Good Bluetooth System - ryan   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Quick delivery and great value.
    Cons: [None]

    Bought this unit for my N104 and it fits perfectly. I had both of the units installed in 15 minutes and operating in about 5 minutes after charging. I have tried all features of the unit and can't fault it at all. Very sleek in comparison to others on the market. Very happy with my choice to buy this vs the other unit.

    Works very well - Reliability - George   Recommended by Reviewer: No
    Pros: Easy install, very good sound quality, no wind noise, mcrophone stays in place.
    Cons: Question mini-USB connectors long term reliability

    Very lightweight and long connecting cable. System installs easily, is out of the way when putting on or taking off the helmet. Microphone boom is stiff and holds the microphone in position unlike some others I have used that always seemed to want to twist the mic out of position. That may be partially due to the additional room in the area in front of the face in the N-104 helmet as compared to my old N-103. The system is unobtrusive and just snaps into place but seems to stay where you put it. My only question is about the long term reliability of the mini-USB connectors used.

    Update - Dave-IL   IL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Got it to work
    Cons: Price, instructions.

    This is an update. I finally figured out the button sequence to have my Samsung Galaxy S3 work in media mode. The instructions are very vague and don't even mention that you need to disconnect the phone mode on the B4 and engage the A2DP mode. The B4 will then pair with the S3 and play music, also when a phone call comes in it will switch to phone mode.The sound quality is fantastic, it makes the Chatterbox sound like a squeek in a tunnel.The radio is good but the reception range is a bit short. Overall all it works fine and is so nicely integrated that I don't mind the cost.

    This review is for Nolan N-Com Communication System - N103 N43 N90 Headset Basic Kits - Goldwing GL1800
    In order to install, you must literally tear down the inside of the helmet and hope you can put it back together again. Otherwise the installation was fairly smooth. Once back together, it has worked great with no problems. The speakers sound awesome!

    What makes Nolan a Nolan - KF4EBC   KY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Easy pairing, loud enough for highway speed
    Cons: Poor radio reception, flaky software

    Without this, a Nolan Helmet is just another midrange helmet. After you learn the basics of the many commands that can be given through the buttons on the helmet, use is easy. Make calls, listen to music from your iPhone, talk to other riders if paired, all while moving at legal highway speed. The sound can be a little lacking in bass, but that could just be my hearing. On the down side, FM radio reception is weak and you can only save stations that it finds on a scan. Even the computer control software will not let you input a frequency and store it to a preset. This is a pain if you want to program stations along a trip route and something that I wish Nolan would fix. It is the only thing that cost it the fifth star.

    B4 - Dave-IL   IL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Easy installation
    Cons: Pairing difficulties with Galaxy S3

    I had a Chatterbox XiH-2 which worked well but I didn't care for the helmet's wind noise and lack of venting.I got a Nolan N-104 and like the fit and it's quieter than the HJC. So I bought the B4 which is an integrated comm system for the helmet. I was hoping that it would do all the Chatterbox would do plus have a radio nice. Well the BT phone pairing works and the radio is good six presets. All is good EXCEPT the B4 isn't pairing with the media player in my Galaxy S3. Nada, no music or GPS directions unless I use the 3.5 jack and wired connection.I think the Samsung is not A2DP compatible. Correct me if I'm wrong. I will try using an A2DP transmitter adapter with the phone and pair that to the B4 to see if it works. Otherwise this would have been a killer communicator for me.

    Good Tech on the Nolan N-Com B4 Kit - JoeCommuter   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Installation, use, and function
    Cons: Installation directions

    This is my first bike bluetooth system and I will never go back. I had a Nolan helmet with cable hook up to my wing. As I expected the performance is improved probably because of 5 years tech improvement advances. The installation was a piece of cake once I figured out how to remove the nolan helmet molding without breaking anything. The instructions could have been more helpful in that respect. After that I is clear the ncom was made for this helmet. It works great, I use the radio function commuting and bluetooth to my phone to receive calls. Most people who call me cannot even tell on a bike traveling down the highway. Sound is good, I was hoping for better. But then again, my wife has been on me about getting a hearing aid. Great product.

    Pros: Designed to fit in the helmet. Controls are easy to use with gloves.
    Cons: Battery doesn't last long, Speakers distort at high volume, somewhat tricky to install, system not intuitive.

    Overall, this really isn't a bad system. It fits in the helmet quite nicely, and looks factory. The FM radio receiver is a nice feature, though I rarely use it. The controls are easy to manipulate with gloves on, much nicer than the UClear 100 I have on my other helmet. On the down side, it can be a bit tricky to install. The instructions aren't really that clear on this. Somehow, I ended up snapping off one half of the FM antenna while installing it. I can still pick up FM signals though, but I'm sure I've lost a bit of the radio's sensitivity. If you travel and have this system, make sure you bring the charger The battery life is not that long. I commute to school 75 mi RT and it seems to be good for about 3 trips. Also, there is no loss of signal shutdown on this system. My UClear will shut itself off after 15 mins without any signals to it. Pairing it up with a bluetooth device wasn't too problematic. I was able to pair it with my iPhone pretty quickly. I did have a problem initially, but the instructions were clear on re-pairing it. Works very well over bluetooth. I can stream musicgps directions nicely. I haven't tried makingreceiving calls on it yet, but I don't think I'll have any problems.The only other complaints I have are the controls and the speakers. It took me at least two days to get used to the system's menu. The instructions are not really clear the first time, but if you play with it a time or two you get the hang of it. Since I ride with earplugs, I have the volume all the way up. Unfortunately, that will give you some distortion at the top end. Bass seems just fine though. If these speakers went to 11, it would be a much better system. Am I happy with it Yes. Would I purchase it again Most likely yes. I like the fact that I don't have some big honking control unit hanging off one side of my helmet. I can put up with the less than stellar sound quality because I really wanted to hear GPS directions. Music and phone calls were always a secondary concern. Of course, your mileage may vary.....

    A big pain to get to work. Snaps keep coming loose and breaking the connection and thus no workie. When they work the intercom is fine but for music best to play thru the bike,sounds tinny
