THE FIRST THING THAT STRUCK ME WHEN I FIRST LOOKED AT THIS HELMET IS THE GIGANTIC EYE PORT THIS THING HAS A HUGE FACE SHIELD TOP TO BOTTOM VISION IS GOING TO BE VERY UNRESTRICTED AND YOU HAVE A NICE PERIPHERAL UNRESTRICTED VIEW OUT OF THE HELMET AS WELL SO YOU GOT PLENTY OF VISION OUT OF THE HELMET THE FACE SHIELD DOES HAVE A LOCKING MECHANISM RIGHT HERE IN THE CENTER WHICH I LIKE THE CENTERED POSITION BECAUSE YOU CAN REACH IT EASILY WITH EITHER HAND SO IF YOUR OPERATING THE CLUTCH YOU DONT HAVE TO REACH AROUND TO THE LEFT SIDE OF THE HELMET TO GET IT OPEN BUT WHEN YOU PUSH THIS ALL THE WAY DOWN ITS GOING TO LOCK INTO PLACE GIVES YOU A NICE SEAL AROUND THE GASKET THERE AND THEN AS YOU RAISE IT YOU HAVE A FEW DIFFERENT DETENTS TO BRING THE SHIELD UP AND THEN INSIDE YOU HAVE ANOTHER VERY POPULAR FEATURE ITS CALLED THEIR VISION PROTECTION SYSTEM BUT ITS BASICALLY A SLIDER OPERATED DROP DOWN VISOR SO THE MECHANISM WORKS BY PUSHING FORWARD THATS GOING TO LOCK THIS INTERNAL SMOKE SHIELD DOWN INTO PLACE AND THEN WHEN YOU WANT TO RETRACT IT YOU JUST BASICALLY HIT THIS RED BUTTON ON THE BASE OF THE CHIN BAR AND ITS GOING TO BE SPRING LOADED AND ITS GOING TO RETRACT RIGHT UP INTO THE HELMET SO VERY CONVIENENT IF YOU RUN UNDER A TUNNEL OR JUST SUDDENLY NEED TO SEE A LITTLE BETTER YOU CAN DROP THAT RIGHT UP OUT OF THE WAY THE INTERNAL SHIELD IS ANTI SCRATCH TREATED AND ITS ALSO ANTI FOG SO YOUR NOT GOING TO HAVE PROBLEMS WITH FOGGING ON THE INTERNAL VISOR AND THEN TO COMBAT FOG ON THE EXTERNAL SHIELD THE N104 DOES INCLUDE A PINLOCK INSERT AND I GOT THAT HERE IT STILL HAS THE PROTECTIVE FILM ON IT WHICH IS WHY ITS GOT THAT YELLOW COLOR TO IT ONCE YOU REMOVE THE PROTECTIVE FILM THAT YELLOW COLOR IS GOING TO GO AWAY BUT BASICALLY THE WAY THIS WORKS IS THE PINLOCK INSERT IS GOING TO INSTALL BETWEEN THE POSTS THAT IS BUILT INTO THE SHIELD ITSELF AND THAT GIVES YOU A KIND OF DUAL PANE EFFECT TO WHERE YOUR FACE SHIELD IS GOING TO BE INSULATED FROM THE ELEMENTS SO IN COLDER WEATHER CONDITIONS ITS GOING TO DO A FANTASTIC JOB ELEMINATING FOG OF COURSE THE OTHER CLAIM TO FAME FOR THE N104 BEING A MODULAR HELMET IS ITS FLIP UP CHIN BAR NOW THE WAY YOU OPERATE THE CHIN BAR ON THE N104 IS WHAT THEY CALL THEIR DUAL ACTION CENTROMATIC CHIN BAR RELEASE BASICALLY THATS A FANCY WAY OF SAYING YOU GOT TO SQUEEZE TWO PIECES TOGETHER TO GET IT TO OPEN. AND THE PURPOSE FOR THAT IS FOR SAFETY REASONS. YOU DONT WANT ANY KIND OF MECHANISM THAT CAN ACCIDENTLY BE TRIGGERED IN AN ACCIDENT SO BASICALLY TO OPEN THIS SHIELD YOU HAVE TO PULL FORWARD ON THE RED TAB ON THE BASE OF THE HELMET WHICH IS GOING TO EXPOSE THIS SECONDARY TAB THEN YOU SQUEEZE THOSE TOGETHER AND THATS GOING TO RAISE IT UP OUT OF THE WAY NOW IM GONNA DO THAT ONE MORE TIME AND I WANT YOU TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE PIVOT SYSTEM HERE. BASICALLY THEY CALL IT THEIR ELLIPTICAL TRAJECTORY AS YOU RAISE THE CHIN BAR UP YOU WILL NOTICE THAT THE CHIN BAR ITSELF ACTUALLY DOESNT JUST ROTATE ON ONE AXIS IT COMES UP AND THEN AS YOU ROTATE IT UP IT ACTUALLY SLIDES BACK. I DONT KNOW IF YOU CAN SEE THAT AS I RAISE IT UP WHAT THAT IS DOING FOR YOU IS THAT IS KEEPING THE CHIN BAR EXTREMELY LOW AND CLOSE TO THE TOP OF THE HELMET. A LOT OF OTHER MANUFACTURERS WHEN YOU RAISE IT UP IT PIVOTS ON THAT ONE AXIS SO YOU GOT THIS GIANT CHIN BAR STICKING UP ON THE TOP OF THE HELMET WHICH MAKES IT REALLY IMPRATICAL TO RIDE WITH. WHAT NOLAN HAS DONE IS THEY HAVE KEPT IT REALLY NICE AND LOW SO IF YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THE WAY THE FACE SHIELD COMES UP HERE ITS VERY CLOSE TO THE TOP OF THE SHELL. AND THEN THEY GIVE YOU A LOCKING MECHANISM SO ON THE SIDE HERE YOU GOT A SWITCH SO IF YOU SLIDE THAT BACK ITS ACTUALLY GOING TO LOCK THAT CHIN BAR IN PLACE. SO IT CANT ACCIDENTLY CLOSE ON YOU. SO YOU CAN ACTUALLY SAFELY RIDE WITH THIS THING OPEN. WHICH A LOT OF OTHER MANUFACTURERS DISCOURAGE YOU FROM DOING. OBVIOUSLY MODULAR HELMETS ARE VERY CONVIENT IF YOUR ON A TRIP OR COMMUTING OR IF YOU WEAR EYE GLASSES. THIS INTERIOR DOES ACCOMADATE EYEGLASSES THEY GOT SPACE THERE SO THAT YOU CAN COMFORTABLY SLIDE YOUR GLASSES ON AND OFF WITH THE CHIN BAR UP. SOME PEOPLE DEPENDING ON THEIR GLASSES CAN EVEN SLIDE THE HELMET ON WHILE WEARING THEIR GLASSES JUST KEEP THE CHIN BAR UP. TAKE A LOOK AT THE VENTILATION SYSTEM ON THE N104. NOLAN CALLS IT THEIR AIR BOOSTER SYSTEM. THERE IS A PRETTY FANCY MECHANISM FOR THESE INTAKE SCOOPS ON THE TOP OF THE HELMET. IF I TILT THIS FORWARD IT MIGHT BE KIND OF DIFFICULT TO SEE ON THE VIDEO BUT THERE IS A SLIDER SWITCH ON THE TOP OF THE HELMET. THAT ACTUALLY OPERATES A RAM AIR SCOOP ON THE TOP AND THIS BROWBAND IN THE FRONT JUST ABOVE THE FACE SHIELD HERE SO IF I SLIDE IT BACK TO THE FIRST POSITION ITS BASICALLY JUST RAISING UP THIS TOP AIR SCOOP PARTIALLY THATS GOING TO DIRECT AIR DOWN INTO THE TOP OF THE HELMET IF YOU NEED MORE AIR FLOW THAN THAT YOU CAN SLIDE IT ALL THE WAY BACK AND THATS GOING TO RAISE THIS AIR SCOOP JUST ANOTHER LITTLE NOTCH THERE BUT IT ALSO HAS A MECHANISM INTERNALLY THAT OPENS THAT BROWBAND AND THAT DOES A COUPLE THINGS ONE IT KEEPS ALL THE OPERATION IN ONE SIMPLE CONVIENT AREA WHICH YOU CAN OPERATE WITH GLOVES THE OTHER THING IT DOES THAT I REALLY LIKE IS IT DOESNT GIVE YOU A WHOEL LOT OF PROTRUDING PIECES ON THE VENTS THEMSELVES SO A LOT OF LESS EXPENSIVE HELMETS MIGHT JUST PUT A SLIDER SWITCH RIGHT ON THE BROW VENTS THERE SOMETIMES IT CAN BE KIND OF FINIKY AND LOOSE BUT IT ALSO CAN ADD TO THE WIND NOISE FACTOR AND WITH THIS HELMET IT IS VERY CLEAN SHELL TAKE A LOOK AT THE BACK OF THE SHELL HERE AS AIR GETS PUSHED IN THESE FRONT VENTS AND THE TOP VENT HERE ITS GOING TO HAVE SOMEWHERE TO GO WITH THESE REAR EXHAUST VENTS NOW THESE ARE GOING TO BE ALWAYS OPEN AS YOU RIDE A VACCUUM IS GOING TO BE CREATED BEHIND YOUR HEAD AND THATS GOING TO HELP DRAW WARM AIR OUT OF THE BACK OF THE HELMET WHICH IS A GREAT WAY TO KEEP THE HELMET COOL AND COMFORTABLE AND THEN YOU ALSO GET A CHIN BAR VENT ON THIS HELMET AS WELL WHICH IS GOING TO BE OPERATED WITH A SIMPLE SLIDER SWITCH AND THAT IS ACTUALLY GOING TO DIRECT AIR UP ON THAT FACE SHIELD JUST GIVE YOU A LITTLE MORE AIR CIRCULATION IN THE FRONT OF THE HELMET AND MANAGE ANY FOGGING ON THE FACE SHIELD ITSELF. OK SO TAKING A LOOK AT THE INTERIOR OF THE N104 COUPLE OF THINGS I WANTED YOU TO NOTICE FIRST OF ALL YOU HAVE A REFLECTIVE MATERIAL THAT RUNS AROUND THE FRONT OF THE CHIN BAR AND AT THE BASE OF THE NECK ROLL SOME MORE ADDITIONAL REFELCTIVE MATERIAL WHICH IS GOING TO INCREASE YOUR NIGHT TIME VISIBILITY SO THAT IS A NICE FEATURE AND THEN AS YOU OPEN THE CHIN BAR UP I DID WANT TO POINT OUT THAT YOU DO HAVE STAINLESS STEEL HARDWARE IN THE LATCHES SO METAL TO METAL CONTACT WHICH IS GOING TO KEEP THE CHINBAR DOWN AND NICE AND SECURE. THE N104 IS ALSO READY TO ACCEPT THE N-COM B4 SYSTEM SO YOU CAN INSTALL THAT SYSTEM ITS GOING TO SEAMLESSLY INTEGRATE WITH THE HELMET YOU HAVE SPEAKER POCKETS BEHIND THE CHEEK PADS AND ITS GOING TO SEAMLESSLY INSTALL BE VERY CLEAN AND NO WIRES TO RUN THROUGHOUT THE HELMET ITS A VERY SIMPLE SYSTEM TO INSTALL INTO THE HELMET THE OTHER THING I WANT TO POINT OUT IS YOU GET A EUROPEAN STYLE RATCHETING INCLOSURE SO RATHER THAN HAVING A D-RING AND STRAP LIKE A TRADITIONAL HELMET YOU GET THE RATCHET STYLE SYSTEM WHICH IS VERY POPULAR IN EUROPE ITS ACTUALLY VERY CONVIENT AND SIMPLE TO USE BASICALLY YOU JUST INSERT IT UNTIL ITS TIGHT AND COMFORTABLE FOR YOU IT IS A VERY STRONG SECURE LATCH TO RELEASE IT YOU JUST PUSH UP ON THE RED TAB AND ITS GOING TO COME RIGHT APART FOR YOU THE INTERIOR IS FULLY REMOVABLE AND ONE THING THAT IS NICE ABOUT THE N104 IS THIS CHIN CURTAIN IS ACTUALLY IM SORRY THE NECK ROLL OF THE HELMET ITSELF IS ACTUALLY OPTIONAL SO IN SUMMER TIME IF YOU WANT A LITTLE BIT MORE AIR FLOW THROUGHOUT THE HELMET YOU CAN ACTUALLY REMOVE JUST THE NECK ROLL AND RUN WITHOUT THAT GIVE YOURSELF A LITTLE BIT MORE VENTILATION INSIDE THE HELMET AND WHEN ITS COLD YOU CAN INSTALL IT OR LEAVE IT IN AND THATS GOING TO DO TWO THINGS FOR YOU ONE ITS OBVIOUSLY GOING TO INSULATE YOU BETTER FROM THE ELEMENTS AND THEN SECONDLY IT WILL ALSO REDUCE WIND NOISE SINCE YOU WILL HAVE A BETTER SEAL AROUND THE BASE OF THE HELMET THERE THE INTERIOR IS LINED WITH WHAT NOLAN CALLS THEIR CLIMA COMFORT PADDING WHICH IS ANTI-BACTERIAL ANTI-FUNGAL.

Hey guys this is Reuben with Competition Accessories Welcome to our premium modular helmets guide this video is going to encompass these four helmets that i have in front of me that range from around 450$ all the way up to 700$ plus so again premium modular motorcycle helmets here that were going to talk about and hopefully we can narrow it down for you if your in the market for a new modular. There's some key differences between these all of them are fantastic helmets very well made and premium features if your not familiar with modular helmets basically that means it just has a flip up chin bar , your going to be able to raise that up out of the way if you wear eye glasses that's a huge advantage you can easily get your glasses on and off . All of these helmets accommodate glasses very well they also work very well if you need to talk to somebody at a light or a gas station you can easily raise that up and have a face to face conversation with somebody if your a smoker if you want to take a drink with your helmet on you can do all of those things with a modular helmet so convenience factor is really high with a helmet that is in this price range obviously you paying for a lot of comfort features and premium features that your just not getting with less expensive modular helmets the fit and finish of each of these is very very good and i just want to stress that each one of these helmets is good each in its own right and were going to kind of run though these from my left to my right from least expensive to most expensive and kind of break down the differences between the four that i have in front of me. So first here on my left , to your right , is the Nolan N104 now this is the only helmet that doesn't have a composite shell it has a polycarbonate lexane shell its manufactured in two shell sizes these were made in Italy again its a nice fit and finish . One of my favorite things about the Nolan is it keeps the chin bar very very tight and low when you look at how the shield mechanism and the chin bar mechanism opens and functions in fact if i close this down and open it again if you focus on this pivot right here you'll see when you open it up it actually starts to raise and then it slides back into place and then it has a nice secure detente at the raised position its called an elliptical pivot instead of being on a single access raising up like most other modular helmets this one actually keeps it nice and low and then there's actually a chin bar lock on the side so if i click that in that actually going to prevent the chin bar from coming down at all . So if you like to ride with the chin bar in the raised position at all and i know all motorcyclists if you wear modular around town or if its hot out a lot of the time you'll keep the chin bar raised. A lot of manufactures actually don't recommend that just for safety reasons obviously you don't want that chin bar to accidentally fall down but well talk real world here i know a lot of you guys going to be wearing modulars are going to ride with the chin bar open. This one is going to prevent it from accidentally coming down on you, even with this unlocked it still has a very nice locked detente if you want to close it you will have to apply some pressure to move down and your going to have to click down into place. All the helmets up here are going to have metal to metal latches obviously as a safety feature you don't want the chin bar to open on accidentally open all the chin bars up here have very secure latching systems I'm not going to elaborate on that on every single helmet here . We do have a full helmet brake downs of each of these helmets so if you do actually want to see how the latches work and hear more about the features of each of these helmets you'll have a chance to watch those videos at the end of this one. To talk some more about the chin bar mechanism on the Nolan though its a little different in that there's a two stage operation there's a tab on the base that you can pull forward its just going to get that other one to come out squeeze those together that's what actually releases the latch.So its a two stage procedure to get that released and that's just an extra safety feature that's going to help keep the chin bar down and secure in case of an accident . You have a European style ratcheting strap on the Nolan these are nice and handy because you can get them on and off with gloves on and that's infinitely a nice feature just going to adjust the strap to where its comfortable to you and then it will just ratchet into place and some Americans are a little leary of these but they are incredibly strong or at least as strong as the D ring system that's found on other helmets that were used to here in the US but its actually very common over in Europe. Fully removable interior on the Nolan talk about the Ncom system briefly they have a Ncom communication system you can remove this base plate here pop that off and install the Ncom system and you'll easily be able to integrate their communication system with the helmet here though its going to integrate very cleanly. It has nice openings for a speaker pockets and plenty of room in the chin bar for a mic. So Definitely a great option for those of you running a communication system , and last but not least internal sun visor there's a slider on this slide that forward its going to deploy the internal sun shield it does have an anti fog coating on it and its spring loaded so you click that red tab and its just going to raise that up nice and smoothly out of the way. Pin lock lens is included with the Nolan so for the external face shield anti fog is accomplished with the anti fog insert. In fact while were talking about pin lock all of these helmets up here include a pin lock ready shield with the pin lock insert included in the box . So you are paying more for these types of helmets but you do get all those types of features included . Ventilation system last but not least on the Nolan is pretty ingenuitive the way that they have designed it they have a single slider up here on the top , and the first position is meant to crack this upper air scoop , fully released all the way to the back it is not only going to open this air scoop here but it also opens the brow vent at the front of the helmet . You'll see that they integrate a spoiler into the shell itself and then there is an exhaust port out the back to help warm air escape out the back of this Nolan . Again the Nolan N104 is going to retail for 449$ you'll have to jump on our website to see our current pricing is we are able to discount the Nolan with a pretty healthy discount but you can jump on there and see what those go for currently on our site. So for retail price ten dollars more 459$ for the HJC which is the next one to the left here. This is the RPHA Max which is brand new this one just came out it was just released and we are really impressed with it it has their premium integrated matrix shell its actually manufactured in three different shell sizes these ones are made in Korea but you see a lot of design influence over from the RPHA 10 which is their premium road race helmet or the RPS 10 which you might be familiar with so really top of the line features coming out in this helmet very aerodynamic design HJC uses extensive wind tunnel testing and development of both the aerodynamics of the shell and the ventilation system for the RPHA max very very nicely done helmet. Ill place this helmet on the scale here you can see its very light weight 3.6 pounds that's almost as light in fact that lighter then a lot of full faced helmets and its almost as light as its full faced brother the RPHA10 . So definitely a very well constructed helmet . Chin bar opens with a simple pull of the tab on the bottom that rotates up on a single access but it does stick up a bit further then the Nolan which all of the other helmets up here are going to be in that boat. You have what they call their cool forever interior fabric its moisture wicking fully removable customizable you can change out different sized cheek pads you have pockets for speakers on the sides here that should accommodate just about any kind of communication system standard D ring and chin strap for the closure . This does have an internal sun visor much like the rest of these helmets here this one is deployed with a slider on the top . This is just going to slide forward and lock into place and you can see it lowers down there it does have an anti fog coating on it , and then there's a button on the top here you press that and its going to retract that up . You might have noticed like the Nolan this one is also damped so its not a jarring sudden spring loaded motion its more of a smooth nice retraction. This helmet includes a max vision pin lock shield. You can see the blue outline on the face shield here its nice and large that's how the outline of this pin lock is going to sit on the shield so your going to get unrestricted vision out of the helmet here . And the pin lock insert if your not familiar with it creates a duel pane effect you have an interior shield a small bead of air and your actual external face shield when you install the pin lock insert and that gives you some insulation between the outside air and the inside . It really does a fantastic job at reducing fog , and again all of these helmets include the pin lock insert . Moving on to the right here you have the Neotec . The Neotec is made by Shoei and if your familiar with motorcycle helmets you've probably heard of Shoei they have been around for quite a while they are made in Japan they have an advanced integrated matrix 5 ply shell its manufactured in three different shell sizes fit and finish again very nice what you would expect from a Shoei . You finally get fully removable interior our previous modular helmets did not offer , internal sun visor is deployed on this helmet with a simple slider found on the left side of the shell here. Slide that up here to deploy it no springs or buttons on this guy its just a simple slider very easy and intuitive to use and if you know where that slider is you can get that up and down very easily . That is anti fog coated you have a multi density liner which is the actual foam inside of this helmet which is going to progressively absorb impact and its also allows them built to let in air channels though out the EPS liner so that this top vent can actually function as a ram air scoop to slide it back and that's actually going to draw air down inside the helmet and then you have an exhaust vent on the back here. This Shoei retails for 648$- 662$ so right around that 650 dollar range . There are graphics available that run for a little bit more then that but the solids are right around that 650 dollar range and we actually are able to provide a little bit of a discount on the Shoei as well. Last but not least we have the Schuberth C3 up here on the right . The Schuberth is made in Germany retails for 699$ and there are no discounts available on these guys, they charge a premium on them but it is worth every penny according to those who buy the Schuberth C3. First thing to point out its an extremely clean shell design, if you look at the back here there's no extra spoilers no extra vents on the back its just a very clean shell design which means its going to be the quietest helmet of the bunch here and that's really what Schuberth really prides themselves on its been wind tunnel tested and actually proven to be extremely quiet at freeway speeds so if noise is something that bothers you if your on a longer ride it gives you kind of a fatigue if you want to use a communication system so having a quieter helmet will help you enjoy that a little bit better the Schuberth with a lot of little design features just to get a very quiet ride . In fact if you look at the top of the face shield here you may notice these little triangle shapes here that is what they call tribulaters. Rather then having just a simple face shield that is just smooth and flat that would create a lot of turbulence around the seal here . These tribulaters actually create a bit of a swirl as it comes over the shell of the helmet , so instead of creating extra wind noise around that seal its actually going to promote wind to go up and over the shell of the helmet so it keeps the noise nice and low . Intake vent is a single vent at the top here and then you have a chin bar vent and again no exit vents on the back of the shell but it does create an area for the air to flush out at the base of the neck , so probably not as aggressively vented as for some of the helmets up here but again your getting a very quiet ride with very tight tolerances how the chin bar integrates with the rest of the helmet its a very nice tight and secure fit. Another thing that's unique to the Schuberth if you get it open here they have their anti roll off system which is an additional chin strap so you have your standard chin strap that has a ratchet enclosure much like the Nolan , and this is a German helmet your seeing that European influence in this one , but rather then just coming up and connecting inside the helmet like most do , it also has an additional strap that runs inside around the base of the helmet and you may have noticed there are a couple of rivets on the back here . That is what they call their anti roll off system, So if you were to go down and hit this helmet is not going to be able to roll forward off of your head or out of place. As this chin bar tightens against your neck this rear strap is going to pull tight keep the helmet in place its an additional safety design that Schuberth has used in their design. They also have a very rounded chin bar, so that if you were to go down and hit your chin on your chest its a very round shape so its not going to create an additional point of injury in that area . Ill show you how the internal sun visor works on the Schuberth , so again a very similar design to the Shoei just a simple slider that's here on the side, slide that back to release the shield down and into your vision and then slide it back to get it up and out of the way. Again that's also anti fog coated, it includes the pin lock insert so your getting all the features that your getting with the other helmets plus your also getting additional safety features. Last but not least on the Schuberth there's a couple of things , first of all the interior out of all of these as you would expect for a 700 dollar helmet is the most plush and the softest and just looking at it on camera you will be able to tell its a very premium fabric very comfortable its what they call Techskin design to keep you comfortable in cool weather and warm weather its cool max so its moisture wicking , its anti bacterial its very comfortable fully removable and then another thing you can do on the Schuberth that is really neat. You can remove the neck roll and replace it with the Schuberth communication system it actually integrates the communication system into the neck roll of the helmet. So your going to get buttons on the neck roll you don't have to attach anything externally to add bulk or weight or wind noise its just integrated right into the neck roll it works really really well and again if price is no object for you this is the top of the line helmet for you that your looking at right here. Definitely a very nice helmet again it retails at 699$ and there is no discounts available on the Schuberth line but that's what your going to get for 699 dollars there are some other graphics available with the Schuberth that will give you a little bit more as far as solids for price is 699. Now real quick i didn't have a chance to weigh all of these and while i do that I'm going to talk about the fit. First of all the Schuberth is going to be the lightest one up here talking about this being a 699 dollar helmet it is 3.55 pounds . If weight is something that is of concern to you weather you have neck issues that cause issues for you or if you just want to have a helmet that isn't going to cause fatigue when your on the bike for extended amounts of time the Schuberth is the lightest one up here. As far as fit goes i would say between the Nolan and the Schuberth these are going to be the most round oval shape that we have up here on the table, and then when you look at the Shoei and the RPHA max these are going to be the more intermediate oval or a slightly longer oval shape between the three of these. As for sizing goes these are all a size large I've tried all of them on they all fit true to size i wouldn't need to go up or down a size in any of them although i will say the opening for the Nolan is the tightest out of them pull the helmet on and off over your ears the Nolan is a little bit tighter but again that's going to give you a better seal on the base of your neck to prevent wind noise. The Schuberth weighed 3.55 pounds , by contrast the Shoei is going to be heaviest on the table is 4.05 pounds now and that's a half pound difference try and keep that in mind. And then the RPHA Max again very light weight almost on the same weight as the Schuberth 3.6 pounds so very impressive design on the part of the HJC. And then the Nolan up here 3.8 pounds it kind of splits the difference between the others . Hopefully that helps you narrow it down a bit between these top four modular helmets that we offer at Competition Accessories , they are all fantastic options just pick one that strikes your fancy as far as looks which ever one that fits your budget the best and bare in mind that comfort is something that can be bought that is something that is appreciated on a longer ride i know how a lot of you guys ride year round long commutes long tours you know year long around the world trips your going to want something that is extremely comfortable that you can endure wearing for days and days on end and be very comfortable and not have something that's a distracting or uncomfortable for you.

    Great Helmet - Dennis M   MI Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Both air ventswork, The visor stays open in multiple positions, The sun visor is handy if you don't have shades or wear just regular glasses, Wider field of view
    Cons: NA

    I have a Nolan 102 that I have had about 5-6 years or so. It was a great helmet for the money. But this helmet is a big improvement all around over the 102. All the items I mention in the pro's are much better on the N-104. For the money, it is a great deal in contrast to what other helmets are available for the cost.

    Nolan N104 - Brad Stetson   PA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Improved latching system and release mechanism, built in sun visor, improved padding and overall fit, ventilation
    Cons: None yet. Waiting to hear the noise level on an upcoming 2500 mile ride.

    I previously owned a Nolan N100 series for many years 12 years. I really liked the overall fit and finish of that helmet. The interior has held up surprisingly well after several removals for washing. There are a few chips in the finish, but overall held up really well. However, the fit is now somewhat loose and the latch & release mechanism can be erratic. To release the helmet it has to be done with two hands. And it also seems that the overall noise level at higher speeds has increased. The new N104 is really nice. Fit and finish is fantastic. The one hand release mechanism works perfect. The helmet front latches positively and feels solid. The single lever lowering and release sun visor mechanism is solid. I cannot wait to get riding again if it ever stops snowing and test out the wind noise and improved ventilation system. As usual Competition Accessories came through with the best price and timely delivery. I would recommend Competition Accessories and the Nolan 104 to anyone looking for a great helmet at a remarkably competitive price considering the features and fit and finish.

    Pros: quality, fit ,noise reduction
    Cons: non

    Very impressed with the overall quality of the helmet, in all catagories

    Nolan N 104 - Bob   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great fit and sun visor inside the main shield
    Cons: NA

    Unlike my older Nolan with the outside flip down shield this one has it behind the main shield so that it doesn't get as dirty and can be adjusted to the correct height much easier. Been riding and racing motorcycles for over 50 years and this is by far the best helmet yet

    Nolan 104 helmet - ferg   LA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good fit, sturdy construction, GREAT air flow
    Cons: none

    This is my first modular helmt, so I was a little apprehensive. The Nolan helmet is a quality helmet. The chinbar operates smoothly and is easy to open or close. Peripheral vision is very good and the visor locks well also. Padding is comfortable and well designed. I had bought a full face helmet years ago and couldn't wear it in the summer due to the heat in south La.. But this helmet has vents that really work. I can't believe how much air flows through it. I recommend this helmet to everyone with an oval head.

    Great Helment - Wil W.   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: High Quality- Excellent workmanship - No Fog - Comfortable
    Cons: Kinda Big

    I've had my helmet a week now and still get excited each time I put it on. You can feel the quality as you put it on, and as you open & close the chin guard or visor. Everything works flawlessly. I've never had a pinlock shield before, and it's amazing how great it works It is bigger than my old AFX full face helmet, but not to a point that it's annoying.Also, the chinstrap is great, the interior is soft, and I had much less wind & noise than with previous helmets. I'd definitley recommend getting one of these helmets.

    Noland N104 Helmet - Zed   NC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: It's every thing I wanted and asked for
    Cons: None

    Great product at a great price for a modular price. I have also installed a Sena com device on my helmet. Fid and works great.

    Nolan N104 - Peter - WI   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Visibility, Construction, Weight
    Cons: Inner shield size

    I have been looking at ordering the N104 as a replacement for my AGV modular for some time. My AGV has a lot of noise and a very annoying vibration at highway speeds.The N104 was taken on a 175 mile ride the first day during which I found it quieter than the AGV and very comfortable. It actually fits my oblong head all around and does not leave a sore spot on my forehead.The one thing I find wrong with the N104 is the length of the inner shield. While it doesn't hit my nose like a similar HJC helmet it could stand to be about a half inch longer as the gap leaves plenty of room for sunlight to enter.One additional plus is my wife does not like full face helmets due to the limited side vision of most. This helmet surprised her with the wide field of view, and she may have me order her one.Overall it is a great helmet.

    N-104 - Dave - IL   IL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: design, weight, vsp, b4, fit
    Cons: a little noisy

    The fit was right on. It weighs less than many others. The chin bar sits close to the shell in the up position. The view port is huge. Ventilation is good but the faceshield blocks the brow vents when sitting in an upright position, tilt down and you can feel the rush of air. I love the buckle, no more fumbling with a D ring and it is accessible with gloves on. The VSP is great since I wear glasses.I bought the n-com B4 for it and this rocks, total integration with minimal exposure to the wind.Speaking of wind, it does have quite a bit of wind noise and whistling, much more than I had hoped for but maybe I'm too critical. It is quieter than my HJC.Overall this is a very nice helmet for the price.

    nolan n-104 - john   IL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: all around great helmet
    Cons: none

    Ordered two Nolan N-104 hi-vis cab yellow helmets for my wife and I. We strongly believe in being seen for safety. These helmets have lived up to the Nolan reputation of good quality. All of the features of the N-104 are outstanding. The fit is good and is very comfortable. Vision is great with the wider visor and my favorite is the internal sunscreen and it works perfectly. Air flow is good and the chin guard opening system is easy to operate. Competition Accessories hit the nail on the head with this helmet and the price couldn't be beat

    Nolan N104 - Peter P.   MA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Comfortable and functional
    Cons: None to speak of at this point

    Great helmet, my first Nolan, always wore HTC, Arai and Shoei, figured I try a Nolan. This helmet 'broke in' quickly and is quite comfortable. The built in sun visor comes in handy and the fact that the chin bar has a lock mechanism is great as I like to ride with it up in hot weather. I'd recommend this helmet to anyone that's yet to try a Nolan, make sure it fits, the price I paid was over 100 less than the dealer too,... Made in Italy is another factor that I likedCheers,Peter P.

    GOOD DEAL - SPEED TRIPLE   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: does what it says
    Cons: abit tight

    My head size is 7 14 which put between a Med and Large. I got a Med and it is tight in the jaw area, buckle is at the max. still think i would go with a med. just can't smile for long. wind noise is low when sitting straight up louder when heads down. It compares to my last AGV blizzard helmet. compacc had the best price by 70.

    Really Nice Helmet - Rider from Wi   WI Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Looks Good, Works Perfectly, Really Nice Features
    Cons: None so far

    Haven't had much time to use it yet do to the weather, but when I have its really nice and look forward to putting it on. I wanted a modular helmet to replace an old full face helmet, looked at several and choose the Noan104. I really like the tinted flip down visor inside, it is very easy to lower or raise and I don't need sunglasses. The helmet chin bar is solid and locks securely when lowered. The buckle type chin strap is new to me and is an improvement over the old ring type in my opinion. I also bought the T-bar that goes thru the red end of the buckle so you can lock it to the bike. I installed the pin lock shield inside the visor and it works great eliminating any fogging. Finish of the helmet seems high quality. Competition Accessories service was outstandingVery Happy with my new Nolan helmet

    Nice helmet - wf13624   MN Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: very quiet and comfortable
    Cons: double action release

    I'm very happy with the purchase of the Nolan n104 helmet. It performs just as described. It fits nice, lens stays clear, and is very quiet. The only draw back is the double action release at the chin takes some getting used to. Highly recommend it to any rider.

    Better than anticipated - VulcanWA   WA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Lightweight, quality construction, best modular I've owned
    Cons: Internal visor shape, limited options for having the shield slightly open

    This is an upgrade from the N102 for me. I really liked my first modular Nolan, so I wanted to stick with them. I was a small in the N102 and after some research, I ordered a medium in the N104. It is a perfect fit. Having a previous Nolan, I had high expectations for this model and I am not disappointed. I do want a bit bigger, darker internal sun visor, so hopefully I will be able to find something aftermarket. Also when it comes to the Bluetooth setup... Who is going to spend more than the original price of the helmet for an accessory I'm sure it's quality but it is simply way too expensive. Again, waiting for an aftermarket solution that doesn't break the bank. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase and this was the cheapest place to buy my helmet.

    Nolan 104 - .boB   CO Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Light weight, one handed opening, sun shield, anti-fog shield, chin strap
    Cons: Sun shield is too short

    I have only used this helmet for 3-4 hours, but I find it very comfortable and quiet. I'v been wearing a Nolan for many years, and I like their fit and finish. This one is a little bit lighter than my old one, but I don't really notice the difference. Oddly enough, one of my favorite features is the chin strap. I don't know why more helmet makers don't do something like that.The only thing I would ding them on is the sun shield. I could be just about 34 - 1 longer. Every time I look down at my gauges, the transition is right there.

    Nolan N104 Helmet - Guzzi Jim   WA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Light, excellent visibility, the integrated sun visor is great
    Cons: Noisier than my old Shoei RF 1000, takes some practice to smoothly use control devices

    Generally, this is a great helmet. For whatever reason this helmet has more wind noise and wearing earplugs is something you probably want to do on longer rides. I wear a size 6-78 hat and a medium helmet seems to fit me fine though the chin strap is a little uncomfortable. The latch system for the chin strap is great as well as the integrated sun visor. This is my first modular helmet and it did take me a little while to get used to using all the releases with gloves on. I haven't yet been on any extended rides, but have worn the helmet for a couple two hour rides without any fatigue issues.

    Great helmet - mustang125   AL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Light weight and quiet
    Cons: Chin strap is going to take a while to get used to

    I am a full face helmet hater and have tried several modular helmets but was not a fan. This helmet is great because it has a better latch system that is more secure and makes the helmet about as good as a true full face helmet. It is also as quiet as a full face helmet. I rode last night and it was cool outside but the pin-loc kept the lens from fogging up just like advertised. It looks really big but it feels small on your head. It is nice and light for its size. The chin strap is not that comfortable to me. I will have to get used to it I guess. It also doesn't have D-rings for my helmet lock so I will have to get a new lock. I will buy another one for my wife when I get the money.

    Nolan N104 - Jeff   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: VPS inner visor, huge eye port, quiet, quick release chin strap, light weight
    Cons: None

    This is my first Nolan, and flip-up, having ridden with Shoei, Arai, and Bell helmets for the last 30 years. My first observations were that this helmet is very light weight compared to the other helmets currently available. The opening mechanism for the chin bar is a 2 step procedure which will eliminate the possibility of the chin bar opening accidentally. My thumb and fore-finger is all that is need to open it. Once adjusted, the microlock chin strap mechanism is easy to use , even with gloves on. I have never been able to thread the chin strap thru the D- rings with gloves on for any of the previous helmets to date. This is a HUGE plus The chin bar can also be released with warmer weather gloves on. I really like the fact that the chin bar not only rotates up, but slightly back when fully up, and can be locked into place with a small button on the left side. The VPS inner visor is the best feature. I no longer have to change to sunglasses, or even change the main visor to a darker shade when out riding. A simple slide of the lever on the left side and the VPS visor locks in place. Just push the red button to release this inner visor and it slides back up quickly by itself. This makes going to and from shaded areas a breeze to compensate for. With the helmet on, there is plenty of room in the chin bar area when using a communication system. My main concern here was that the chin bar would be to close to my mouth when closed. I have at least 34 of an inch to fit the microphone for easy speaking. On all previous full-face helmets I could kiss the chin bar with ease. The overall feel of the interior on my head is of supreme comfort. I always put the Nolan on with the chin bar raised and then lower the chin bar to lock in place. I have read with other reviewers, with flip-up helmets, that they noticed when lowering the chin bar caused the cheek pads to be pressed in tighter. This is not he case on my N104. The helmet fit does not change open or closed. I am sure other people reading this wanted to know. On changing the main visor, you just slide a button and pop off the visor quick and simple. Reinstalling the visor is just as simple. No tools required The eye-port is the largest that I have ever seen on a helmet. My vision never feels cramped or compromised as with other helmets. My peripheral vision is outstanding Side to side and up and down are the best of any helmet out there. Ventilation is also superb The vent slides can be operated very easily and customized to your tastes.The pin-lock anti-fog inner shield is easy to put in place. Just make sure to really flatten the main visor to latch the anti fog insert on the pins. I felt like I was going to break the main visor when I flattened it, as per the directions, but it sprung back to original shape instantly. No fogging to speak of. I only ride down to 35 degrees Fahrenheit , but never noticed a problem. The size XL is the perfect fit for me. I have always worn an XL since my head circumference is 24 inches. The sizing guide is spot on correct. Overall an outstanding helmet. Well worth the admission price

    Cons: None

    This helmet is very well made. The folks at Compacc are super to deal with. They have super fast shipping.

    Great Helmet - CowboyJim   NC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Pin lock anti fog, big view port, high quality, relatively quite
    Cons: Won't fit in my saddle bags, can't secure to bike cause no D ring, a little tight on the tips of my ears

    This is my first 'premium' helmet and I love it It is a very smart design and is build of high quality materials. I wanted a helmet that would not fog and this one is perfect. I can breath in the helmet all day in the cold and it will not fog...simply amazing compared to the other helmets I have. I am still getting used to the flip up design and ratchet chin strap but change is good.I was disappointed when the helmet was too big to fit inside my 1150GS adventure saddle bag while my XL Scorpion does. Also, I could not lock it since it doesn't have a D ring. That is why I just purchased a 6 foot lock that I will use to lock it and my other goodies up like my jacket. No big deal. I really like the helmet so far.

    Best Flip - The Old Guy   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: The Nolan N-104 fits very well, quiet and very well made. The mechanism is smooth and secure.
    Cons: There aren't any cons

    I've only ridden with Arai high end helmets or the past 20 years. All previous flip up helmets have seemed too much of a compromise in noise, weight and protection. Including the earlier Nolans. While any flip up is in theory a protection compromise, the N-104 comes closest to a full face in all aspects. Easily comparable to the other European flip, at a much more reasonable price.

    Great helmet. Nice sturdy construction, low noise, great ventilation, and best of all is the clarity of the lens.

    Pros: Changable Internal Visor, NCom B4, Large field of view

    Great helmet, the NCom B4 communication system wFM & Bluetooth is extreamely easy to install and use. The N104's internal shaded drop down visor is very simple to change out to a different shadecolor.

    Hilly  
    I have only ridden with an HJC 3/4 helmet forever, I am safety conscious, but every full face helmet made me feel shut out from the world, with limited visibility. I have to say this helmet was worth the wait. The visibility is amazing. It equals a 3/4 helmet, so no blind spots. Plus the pinlock face shield is so clear and doesn't fog up, even if you try. When installing pinlock, keep the yellow pinlock cover on, and while wearing thin gloves to avoid smudging the shield, push one side into place. Then I stretched the shield slightly to elongate enough to push the second pinlock in. Once you smooth out any ridge, remove yellow cover tape, and you're good to go. The hinge mechanism feels strong, the double chin bar levers are an intelligent design to avoid unintended release. And the sun shades work perfect, no more sunglasses, and instant up when you enter a dark tunnel, very safe. If you're claustrophobic like I am, you will appreciate modular helmets like this Nolan. The latch strap is so much nicer than dealing with the old kind, and is more secure, super easy on/off. The venting is phenomenal. The moment I slid the lever, I felt cool air rushing over the top of my head, and out the back. I feel like I've gone from a yugo to a ferrari, I highly recommend upgrading if you are in an older helmet. Nolan hit the nail with this one, and you will literally "see" why. Great customer service as always with compacc, there was a minor issue with the first helmet sent, they made sure I had a new one in no time, no fuss, no frustration, good stuff. Buy your wife one as well, mine loves hers. Thanks!

    Test fit  
    I was able to test fit this helmet at the International Motorcycle Show.
    Initial response was this thing is light in comparison to my N102. Significantly lighter.
    Fit was amazing in a large, absolutely no hot spots, fit my head perfectly.
    The chin bar felt 100 smoother in operation, both swing up and down and latching and unlatching.
    New features, you can lock the chin bar up for 3/4 helmet riding, and the sunvisor now locks down, and has a 1 button retraction feature. This one is on my list for replacing the N102!

    N104 Helmet - BertRo99   IA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: excellent quality and price, very nice feature, everything I expected except sizing
    Cons: sizing

    Two sizes too small. My current HJC helmet is a medium and using size chart appeared medium would be right size. I ended up ordering an extra large plus had to change mounting of headset, no lip on side of helmet to attach clamp. wife has an extra small HJC, medium was right fit for her.

    N104 Helmet - Jay   VT Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great viewing area, chinbar lock, ventilation
    Cons: Fit is tight

    With a 7 58 wide oval head, I replaced my N102 XXL with the N104 XXL and it was too small all the way around. CA replaced it easily and fast with a XXXL, but is is much more snug than my old XXL. I really like the sun visor mechanism and the lock in the chinbar up position. I have tried many helmets for my odd shaped head, and Nolan seems to fit the best.

    Nolan N104 Flip-Face Helmet - M.B.R.   AZ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: High quality, well-designed, very favorable pricing
    Cons: Sizing runs slightly small, 4X size not available

    I recently purchased a 3X Nolan N104 helmet and it is a very nice product. It has all the features of helmets which cost twice as much, and even more. The finish quality of the Nolan N104 is very impressive, and there is very little not to like about this helmet. Unfortunately, I have a very large head and even the 3X size was justr a bit too small for me because it caused pinching against my fore-head. I have since returned the helmet, but unfortunately, the Nolan N104 is not available in a larger size. If your head is not too large 63 cm, then I can strongly recommend this helmet for both quality and value.

    Nice helmet, good fit for me - Ken M Can   MA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Fit, construction, ergonomics
    Cons: fogging at a stop

    Excellent helmet so far. Seems worth the extra entry fee. Only a crash test will bear out the true value of this helmet. But I like everything about it. I've been riding in 35-25 degree temps and fogging control is naturally a challenge even with the pin-lock screen in place. This helmet dissipates breath vapor well under way with the face shield down until reaching a traffic signal. But the solution is a simple flip of the face shield up one detent or more at the stop then down as you get under way. Some condensation builds along the bottom edge of the face shield which I occasionally find myself wiping away with a finger. Visibility is excellent. Love the internal drop-down solar shade. I can wear eyeglasses with this arrangement. I've been using a balaclava on the colder days below 0 celsius but generally find the helmet warm enough without. SpringSummer use will be interesting. At that time I expect to find myself removing the face shield and chin curtain for greater airflow. Unlike the Nolan 43e which I purchased and returned, this helmet fits my more oval shaped noggin correctly with even pressure all around. The Nolan N43e is shaped for a more round head shape.

    Just a hair from perfect - boldrider   AZ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent quality, good fit, VPS visor
    Cons: chin strap too short, VPS visor too short, Pinlock inner visor anti-fog had creases, and some distortion

    This is my second Nolan Flip-up, the first being a N103, which is still serviceable and an excellent helmet.The N104 is better, in that I like the quick stow feature on the sun visor. Just the touch of the release button, and it retracts fully. I have yet to wear the helmet on a long ride, so cannot vouch for comfort after wearing it for several hours straight. My N103 I fitted with earphones, and it made it a bit too tight, causing crushed ear syndrome after three or four hours in the saddle.I like the off-yellow color of this helmet, and think it stands out distinctly for visibility. White helmets are said to be the most visible, but this yellow-orange color is bright and stands out.I strongly favor full face helmets for complete protection, and this flip up, with metal-to-metal latches gives good protection along with the capability of flip up for talking, eating, or drinking, without having to remove the bucket. I also like the flip up for donning and removal while wearing glasses..The inner sun visor is great, especially when riding in changing light conditions, like in and out of shadowed roadways.I have worn Arai, Shoei, and cheaper helmets, but this N104 is the best helmet I have had, and the price I got on sale, along with free shipping made it an easy choice, although my N103 was and is still a good helmet.My only suggestions are that the chin strap be made a bit longer so that it is not quite so tight against my throat, the sun visor be made a bit longer, so the gap at the bottom is smaller, and that the clear visor be made with a notch that allows it to be opened just a crack, rather than the nearly one inch first setting in the N104. The N103 allowed me to just barely crack the visor to let in air, whereas the 104 opens too far on the first setting.I was disappointed with the anti-fog inner visor. It has creases where the moisture-absorbing material was put on poorly, and the visor seems to have distortions that adversely affect vision. I probably will remove this because it is annoying to have somewhat blurry vision with it in place.All in all, this is an excellent helmet, and I am glad I purchased it.

    N104 - Rider Ron   MO Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Snug fit, quiet and more air flow.
    Cons: Poor paint job.

    Bought new N104 helmets for my wife & I. They fit very snug and seem to have better air flow with less wind noise then our old Nolan helmets. I like the internal, retractable sun shade and the overall function of the helmet. They are larger than the old helmets and the two N104 helmets will not fit in our GL1800 trunk as the shell is larger. I tried to close the trunk lid and chipped the paint on one helmet. There is some foreign material dirt in the paint and my impression is the paint on the N104 helmets is not as good as the paint on the older helmets we have. Still easy to open with one hand and great for talking at short stops without having to remove your helmet. Weight is not bad and once they are broken in you can wear them comfortably all day.

    Great helmet - New Rider   NC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: comfort, quiet, modular, quick connect chin strap, sun visor
    Cons: Small in front of chin. Chin strap bulky

    Sizing is accurate with head measurement. The fit will break-in and become a little looser with time. The modular function is great and easy to use. The sun visor is great and easy to use. The helmet doesn't fog. My eye glasses fogged but the helmet visor did not. Ventilation is good. I don't get too hot when riding. Sound is not loud- although this is my first helmet riding at significant speed so I have nothing to compare it to. The helmet is small around the chin... If I shift my jaw forward I can touch the front of the helmet with my jaw. My face does not touch unless forcing my jaw forward, so in most conditions this doesn't bother me. The click feature of the chin strap is good because its very easy to use and adjust tightness even with gloves on. However I think its a little more bulky than traditional rings and therefor presses into my neck a little... pressing into my trachea as though chocking me a little. I thought it this was going to be a problem when I first tried it on but once adjusting the tightness and the helmet breaking in, it does not bother me. Also there is no metal ring to pass a helmet security bar through if you like to leave your helmet on the bike.

    N104 with B4 behind a windshield - Roger W   MA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Fit, Quality, Smooth operation
    Cons: Noisy, Sun shade

    I bought this helmet to travel across the country anticipating rain. That was a smart decision. I normally use an open face 34 helmet but rain in the face is painful and dangerous as you can't see.The Nolan worked perfectly in that respect. When the rain started I just flipped down the chin guard and zipped past the bikers waiting under the highway overpasses as I could see perfectly and was in total comfort.I did drive 3200 miles in the helmet from Boston to Seattle in 8 days of July and was very pleased overall. Although the helmet was black and the temp was 90-100 deg F most of the time, I was not uncomfortable with the chin guard raised. When the temp dropped to 70 a few times I flipped down the chin bar and was quite comfortable.With the top vents open the air flow keeps you cool but, frankly, I could not tell the difference when the lower vent was open or closed. I do have a windshield.Although I have avoided full face helmets all my life because I am claustrophobic this helmet solves that problem completely. With the chin bar open it's just like a 34 helmet. With the chin bar closed there is lots of room in front of you and a very wide field of view. Getting the helmet on and off is easy with the chin bar raised but you do have to put your sun glasses on and off while the helmet is on. The chin bar does not catch a lot of wind behind the windshield in the up position and I rode thousands of miles with it up.When down, the wind noise subsides a little and the visibility with the pinlock shield is somewhat distorted but it does the job.I was doubtful at first but I came to love the Microlock2 retention system - much nicer that the double D-ring I've always used.The two disappointments with this helmet were the wind noise and the Visor. I found that the noise was even worse than my 34 Shoei helmet with the chinbar open and about the same with it closed. This is surprising as the helmet fits perfectly and the cushion is well fitted around the ears.The real problem though is the sun visor. The mechanism works perfectly - sliding in place and snapping out. But, the too-large nose cut out is so poorly designed that I found it almost useless. The only time you have both eyes shielded is is if you look directly head. If you look slightly to either side which we are all constantly doing one eye is looking through the nose opening. The effect is very distressing. I ended up using the visor very little. I had significant problems driving into the late afternoon sun because of this. I tilted down the chin bar a little and nodded forward but glare was as issue. The visor also adds significantly to the wind noise with the chin bar open.The B4 installed easily into the helmet and was also easy to set up and use for what I wanted - to monitor the GPS. The FM radio worked fairly well too. However, the wind noise made listening to music impossible from the FM radio or my wired MP3 player.

    Love the visibility - Larry   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent fit and visibility - flip down dark interior shield - neck wind guard - ease of opening and closing chin guard
    Cons: Difficult to put on - sometimes I don't get the chin guard locked down - ratchet closure instead of double d ring

    I really like this helmet. I moved from a full face to modular just because it is more convenient at the gas pump, convenience store, toll booth, etc. My old HJC had air currents that made my eyes continually water no mater how I adjusted the vents and the new Nolan is much better - no more watery eyes I wear hearing aids and it is very difficult to spread the helmet wide enough not to activate the hearing aid switches for my in the ear aids. My ear top lobes also get folded down over my ear when I don the helmet and I have to work to unfold them after it is on. Once on it is the correct fit for my head shape. I also have difficulty adjusting the chin strap so that it doesn't dig in. I find the bulky ratchet mechanism too large for a comfortable fit even with the excellent padding that is there. Visibility - Visibility - Visibility - I chose the cab yellow to be seen and it works. I have noticed a few other riders with the same color and they really show up to me and I am hoping that auto drivers see them and me much more readily than with other colors or that they see me at all. Visibility - Visibility - Visibility - The view out is panoramic, what more can I say

    Good Value - Greg   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Value for Price, built in sunshade, Anti-fog pinlock shield included, Very convenient Modular design,
    Cons: Noisy, Poor positioning 1st shield detent

    Generally Very happy with helmet. Especially at Compacc discounted price of just over 300 was a No-Brainer. High quality comfortable interior. Chinbar Easy to open wearing summer gloves and like security of dual button mechanism to open. Ist detent barely crackssheild open- 2nd is about twice what it should be for some added airflow. Don't ride enough to spend 400 on a helmet. Have not had opportunity to compare to similar brands., Sizing Very snug but again nothing to compare it to as this is my first helmet purchase in many years. Currently not doing a lot of riding and mostly short trips at that, 50 miles or less. For longer rides earplugs still recommended.Would purchase again at this price.

    N 104 - Roger   IN Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great price and features
    Cons: Strap rubbed my neck and cheek pads were to tight

    I really liked all the features, price and quality, but the cheek pads were to tight for me and the strap rode back on my adams apple just wearing around the house and I knew after riding for a while it would be irritating. If it fits you okay I think it would be a good buy.

    First Modular Helmet - christine   WI Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: quality, design, ease of use. color
    Cons: wind noise, fogging

    In general, I like the helmet a lot. It was PRETTY tight for the first few weeks but has now loosened a bit. The size chart was accurate. I measured a 22 12 and ordered the medium. AT first the sun visor bothered me due to it ending in my line of vision but I don't even see the line anymore. The visor does fog when stopped - have to vent it a bit when stopped. Love the yellow color - cars seem to see it easily - so far.

    Pros: Really nice helmet
    Cons: The ear pockets were too low and the top of my ears were being folded over.

    I am one of many individuals who get claustrophobia wearing a full or even a modular helmet. I didn't realize this until I tried this one on. I have no problem with my HJC IS-33 34 helmet.

    Nolan N104 - TG   IL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great fit and function
    Cons: Had to settle on color

    Love the helmet and the purchase was zero hassle the only thing was I wanted a gray and red color combo but it was BO'd for two months. Love the Bluetooth too I'd recommend this helmet to anyone the price was great This is my first high end helmet...

    Interesting Design - KW   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Large face shield opening
    Cons: Large face shield

    The most obvious feature of the N104 is the large opening, which goes of course with a large shield. This is a nice feature - visibility is excellent. However, if you like to ride with the shield up, you need to have a very good windshield or the large face-shield will act as a sail. On my bike, the vibration was so bad that it felt like my eyeballs were shaking. I was able to adjust my wind protection, and the helmet is usable. The helmet is on the small side - a Large fits like a Medium. The padding feels somewhat rough compared to high-quality helmets like Shoei. The mechanical features work very well.Overall, this is a good helmet - I am not convinced that it should cost as much as it does. I'd recommend it with reservations.

    Nice - RMc NJ   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Fit, finish, comfortable
    Cons: No directions how to remove visor to install anti fog shield

    After researching modular helmets I decided on the Nolan 104. I like the fit and quick release strap, wide view shield. However, the anti fog shield alters the view like looking through cloudy plexiglass.I would recommend this helmet to a friend.

    Nolan N104 - burnman   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Fairly light weight flip-up, large face shield opening, internal drop down shade, very nice interior padding, easy to use opening mechanism
    Cons: Poor vents, drop down shade isn't adjustable and doesn't go down far enough, break-in time long

    Second Nolan for both my wife and I. Must say we thought after reading the reviews and write-ups that this helmet would be better than it is. If you are behind a windscreen you might want something else, old Nolans were 10 times better venting. Face shield only has one click option on the low end for part way opening, not enough. Really like the inside drop down shade but for both of us it needs to go down at least 12 more, it takes a long time to get use to seeing through the bottom edge of the shade. One button push for shade retraction makes it easy but I don't see it lasting very long with everyday use. Every helmet takes awhile for breakin, we both have thin faces but the cheek pads on these are way to tight. After 10 hours mine is starting to feel like it is part of me. On the positive, lighter than before and I can feel it, way better in the buffeting dept. The larger face opening is sweet. Noise might be slightly better if at all. Quality is high. Price through Competition Accessories is great plus they are SUPER fast. For the money my dislikes are things I am more than willing to put aside. Just wish the venting was better.

    A 'nod' to a helmet - Nolan N104 Helmet   IL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: The Nolan N104 Helmet is a light, well ventilated helmet with a wide viewing
    Cons: The chin strap is uncomfortable.

    My riding buddy has used and loves his Nolan N103 for several seasons. On the other hand, he has enjoyed making fun of my bargain basement helmet. Consequently, when I decided to upgrade my helmet, I went for the Nolan N103 which has been replaced by the N104. Hopefully, my experiences will be a positive as his. Time will tell.

    protect your head - Djwill236   NJ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: many features
    Cons: size

    I like this helmet for the many features this helmet provides, several vents and the anti-fog shield work very well. I also went with the N-Com B-4 system that hides and conforms well into this helmet and provides nice sound inside. For the size I went with the recommended size medium, but once I received the helmet it was to small and went with a large which fit better. I would go one size bigger they fit quite snug. Ride safe

    Nice helmet...sure fits differently than the N90 - Oneydee   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Attractive design, Wide eyeport, good ventilation, comfortable and quiet for a modular
    Cons: Snug fit fore-aft, VPS shield nose cutout too big - interferes with vision when down

    I haven't spent much time yet with the helmet but can tell that it is a quality lid with many design features engineered in. I would caution anyone coming off of an N90 to try a 104 on first before buying as the two helmets fit night and day differently. I have a long fore-aft head and my chin makes contact with the chin bar on the 104 where it did not on the 90. Moving up a size helped but I am concerned now that the helmet liner may pack in and the helmet will be too large for me down the road.One thing for sure that I don't care for is the design of the VPS inner sun shield. The nose cutout is basically a large square notch taken out of the shield. It is so large that I find it right in my line of sight at times and a distraction to being able to see clearly ahead when the shield is deployed.The paintfinish is top-notch and the chin bar locking mechanism seems robust and well designed. Overall this is a great choice in a 2012 modular helmet. Moving up from an HJC, G-Max, etc. the rider will notice a quality improvement right away.

    Nolan N104 - Manfred   MI Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Internal sunvisor, outer shield quality and dimensions, new latch design
    Cons: Shield detent positionforce, shield fogging, wind noise.

    I used a Nolan N100E for several years before buying the N104, so I have a pretty good standard of comparison. Overall quality is excellent. I thought I'd like the internal sunvisor, but after about 8,000 miles I LOVE IT. It is SO NICE not to have to screw around with sunglasses anymore. The internal visor provides better coverage and stays cleaner than sunglasses do, and I found the tint to be sufficiently dark even while riding into the sun on the desert and in the mountains. The new one-handed chinguard latch control is an improvement over the N100's 2-handed design, which over time became troublesome when trying to open if it was NOT on my head it was always easy to release or close while worn. The N104 has a larger and re-shaped viewport. The Lexan shield quality is excellent in terms of clarity, lack of distortion, and ease of removalinstallation. The internal suspension seems an improvement especially in terms of allowing air circulation. The N104 is 40g lighter than the N100 and quite comfortable even on 800 mile days. The new ventilation controls are easy to use and the ventilation itself seems slightly more effective than on the N100. The ratchet-style strap buckle is essentially unchanged and needed no improvement it's far more convenient than double D-rings. However... My biggest gripe is about the shield detent positions. The shield can either be fully closed using the pin-lock, which definitely keeps it securely closed, or resting on the pin-lock, which is almost completely ineffective in terms of allowing more airflow, or open at one of 3 detents. On the N100, the first detent left a gap of 16mm at the centerline, which was an excellent option when you needed to prevent fogging or just wanted a bit of fresh air. The N100 shield would stay open in this position, even at freeway speeds on a sport-touring bike that has essentially no windshield. But on the N104, the first detent leaves a gap of over 50mm, which is too much in many situations, and furthermore it will NOT stay open at high speed or in a significant headwind at least not without a big windshield. Adding the weight of the fog-resistant inner visor would increase the tendency to self-close. Another big gripe, which is related to the detent issue, is how fog-prone this shield is. I've been using helmets with Lexan shields for 30 years and this is absolutely the worst in terms of fogging if there's even a slight rain or humiditycool temperature. Yes, an anti-fog inner visor IS provided with the helmet but a it seems like a hassle to install, b adds weight to the shield which is a problem on a couple counts, c is bound to reduce overall clarity of the viewport, and d why is the fogging so bad in the first place Finally there's wind noise which is a battle I've been fighting for years. On my bike BMW R1100RS I've cut the shield down and repositioned it so, if I sit up very straight which is less comfortable than the forward slouch I prefer, the helmet rim is up out of the turbulent zone. The N100 was fairly decent in this regime, though earplugs were still necessary. The N104 is definitely noisier in a basic way, even when completely out of the turbulence, and in addition the slot for the sliding control for the inner visor adds yet more noise immediately next to the left ear. After buying this helmet I noticed the Gmax GM54 which is also a flip-face, inner sunvisor-equipped helmet but has the inner visor control along the crown of the helmet. That would be less convenient in terms of arm motion required, but would probably reduce effective noise at ear-level. The GM54 is considerably cheaper, which does raise a bit of question about quality, but it has a lot of nice features and appears to be getting uniformly excellent reviews but unfortunately, still has a DD ring strap.

    Good Helmet - Bruce   MO Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Fit, low wind noise
    Cons: No available communications system other than Bluetooth

    Have the helmet and it is definitely a good improvement on the older versions. Wind noise is down and the visor shade is inside the clear visor so it is protected.However, don't expect to add a J&M Comm unit to it unless you are willing to send it to them for a custom install Per J&M, Way too much liability involved in that scenario whereby we cannot tightly control the quality of the headset install on the N104 but not for older helmets of Bluetooth.

    Great helmet - Viffer   TN Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Well made, great features.
    Cons: Loud, chin strap uncomfortable at times.

    Getting used to this helmet and it getting better for me once it is broken in.

    N104 - Love it or try again - NeoConWinger   MD Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Paintfinish, fit, function
    Cons: Fit, function, air, noise

    First let me say that I read all the reviews I could find.What did it get me 5 people love it and 5 people hate it. So no offense but that leaves me with nothing.Paint What can be said BMWBenz automotive grade. This came out of the box with a shine. And more slippery than silicone on a non-stick pan. Excellent. But with that said I would settle for a sloppy appearance and better function. Fit Many people panned the 'pressure' it puts on certain areas of the head. But I say one mans pressure is another mans snug. Very subjective. I do not think you can have a proper snug fit without pressure somewhere. If you do not have snug then you have a helmet that may be too big for you. Plus Nolan only made 2 outer shells and this is bound to affect some one.I feel it is tight but may loosen up with time. And I wear glasses so...I will feel pressure behind the ears I have to deal with on any helmet.Face shield Fine closure but could use a notch between closed and quarter open. My old Nolan 100 had a smaller first notch.Sun shield I like it. Yes it has an annoying notch cutout for your nose. But I wear bi-focals so I am used to looking at and thru lines. Not an issue for me.Air Circulation Well it is a motorcycle helmet. No one seems to have this right. First I must state that I ride a Goldwing with a high windscreen. I may not get the best advantage of the aerodynamics of this helmet. For me this is a hot helmet. That is why I would love a smaller open notch in the face shield mechanism. But also understand that this will ruin the water tight seal at the top. So you can't have both. On a hot, rainy day I will fry. Simple enough.Ratchet Micro-notch retention strap Having had a Nolan 100 I was already used to this and I like it. No complaints.Noise Level It is no Shoei that is for sure. But it IS a modular and that breeds a certain compromise in any helmet. I feel that my old N100 was quieter with the shield closed than this but I have no problem wearing earplugs as you should do anyway. I rate it a comparable.Sadly the problem with any of these expensive items we so love for our toys is that you can not try them out before buying them. A fit in the dealer showroom is not going to tell you what this helmet is going to feel like after 5 hours on the road. Same goes for the 500 to 700 custom seats that so many makers love to sell. Every seat feels good for 15 minutes. But ask me again after 8 hours in the hot sunSo I like the Nolan 104 and after sweating in it for 3 hours I guess I can not in good conscience return it. But I do not think it is so bad that I can not live with its quirks. And they may work out over time just as I came to like my N100. I will keep it and I feel I have a fine helmet at a fair price.And the only reason for a helmet is to keep the police happy and help save my noggin in the event I become suddenly separated from the bike...here is to hoping I never try out it's impact capabilities which are also very good by the way. Hope this helps some one.

    After first weekend  
    I put in a couple of hundred miles this weekend with the new helmet and have the following impressions.
    Pros
    Quality build
    Great ventilation
    Easy on off shield
    Reasonably quiet,
    Positive lock on the faceshield
    Popdown visor
    Cons
    Fit is kind of tight for a Charlie Brown head like me. Not as tight as the Xlite was.
    Shield causes mild buffet when full open

    I replaced a N102 with this helmet so very please so far. Hopefully the break-in will make the fit a little more comfortable. Would buy again.

    Nice helmet but did not fit the shape of my head - Al   VA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Well made, clean design, good value, built in communications available
    Cons: Doesn't fit my head. No way to try it on beforehand.

    I really wanted this helmet to work for me and the price was very reasonable but it was just too tight for the shape of my head. Extreme claustrophobia. I had the same problem with the Shuberth. The Shoei is very comfortable for me and what I will likely end up purchasing but it is a lot more expensive and does not have the advantages of the built in communication system.

    Nolan N104 - mharland   IL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good Price
    Cons: Fit

    I bought this helmet as a replacement for my Shoei RF-1000. This was my first modular helmet. My wife has worn Nolans for years. The finish of this helmet was excellent. Lots of features. Almost too many for my taste. I thought it was loud, and I always wear a custom fitted ear plugs. The fit was a little tight on my forehead where as the Shoei had always been a perfect fit. It's a head shape thing no doubt. My wife was going to replace her Nolan with a new helmet and we had intended to buy the N-Com system. In the end, I returned this helmet because of the fit and we purchased two new N90S Nolans and the matched N-Com system.

    A very nice helmet for the price. However you can't expect to fit everyone. My problem was my ears were hitting the top of the recessed area where the ears are supposed to nest. It was bending my ears over at the top. Shame because it was a very nice helmet.

    Cons: Slightly heavy

    Viffer  
    The build quality of this helmet is excellent. Much easier to change shields. than with other Nolans I have owned. Otherwise I am not happy at all with my purchase. I would send it back, but my date dropped it to the road on a ride yesterday, sctatching it a little. Size and fit - it is comfortable but runs a little big in comparison to my N102 of the same size. I have an Arai Profile XL head, that is, long oval. A XXL in this helmet is very close to being too big for me.The chinbar mechanism is great and has a high quality feel to it. The face shield will not stay up by itself very well when going down the road.The internal sun shield just plain sucks. It is either up or down.and it does not go down far enough. There is a large cutout in it at the nose that is totally unnecessary and distracting. The eye port is huge, so huge that the sunlight becomes an issue, there is no shielding from the helmet itself, no eyebrow effect. The darkest tinted faceshield avialiable is just barely tinted, almost no effect in the bright sun. Noise level is about the same as my N102, which is bad. Earplugs are a necessity.The racheting chinstrap is a step backward IMHO from the N102. It is smaller and easy to work, but it is uncomfortable under my chin, this may be due to misadjustment, but time will tell.I am going to keep this helmet for a while and see if I get used to it, but for right now I am very unhappy with it.

    Do NOT buy, badly designed - Carlos Cardona   Recommended by Reviewer: No
    Pros: Nolan quality
    Cons: Faceshield CANNOT be cracked slightly open

    I returned this helmet after one VERY HOT ride The Faceshield CANNOT be cracked slightly open, it is either halfway open or closed. With my Nolan 100 you have several more opening positions for the faceshield, allowing you to get exactly how much air you need a crack, a little open, etc. The 104's shield is either closed or halfway open which is uncomfortable at speed. Maybe this would be OK under 45 degrees, but anything above is torture

    Bad quality DANGEROUS helmet - David K   CA Recommended by Reviewer: No
    Pros: Good Air Ventilation
    Cons: Poor quality liner, Dangerous design of lowerd chin bar for larger view of shield

    I Bought many helmets during last ten yrs of my riding career and N104 is the WORST and Most DANGEROUS helmet I have ever bought... I wish I could return this but wife threw out the original box and I'm too lazy to argue withe the seller.In order to have a better view through the shield, they have lowered the chin protection significantly which I think would break my collar bone even in a slow highside accident. The chin bar is so low that when I turn my head side to side, it hits my shoulders. At the same time it hits the release button of the shade which startled me several time. Any movement of the head also hits the collar bone. They definitly reduced the wind noise coming through the neck area by enlarging the chin bar and neck liner, however the high pitched wind noise coming through the windshield is greater than any other cheap helmet. The lining of the helmet is poor quality. The quality of the lining is thin and seems like it's for bicycle helmet. The chin strap device is made out of hard plastic and metal and it irritates my neck so I end up loosening the strap which again is dangerous. I would never recommend this HELLMET to anyone No wonder it was on sale for 100 less even for a brand new model.
