Hey guys this is Ruben with competition accessories welcome to our review of the Nolan N44 helmet. This helmet is replacing the N43E trilogy from Nolan,and that helmet was actually available in two different versions you had the trilogy which was very similar to this helmet and then you had a standard N43E which was just a 3/4 open face helmet that had a faceshield but no chin bar or anything. Now the N44 your getting all the accessories theres no trilogyversion for say they just gave you the full package in the N44. The price has gone up a little your looking at spending a little over 300 bucks for solids and a little bit more than that for graphics, jump on our website to see what the current pricing is. But when you take a look at this helmet your goingto see that there are alot of different configurations that you can run it in. Which makes it a very versatile helmet no matter what kind of bike yourriding. Wether your doing long distance touring or your an urban commuter or even dual sport guys i could see really liking this helmet depending on whatsetup you wont to run it with, so its kind of a good do it all helmet. Especially for the guy who loves the open face feel but maybe wonts a little moreprotection than an open face helmet offers. This helmet could be run as an open face it certainly gives you the visibilty out of the helmet of an openface. They have actually expanded the eye port even a little bit more than the N43E was so your getting a very large unobstructive view out of the helmet,which gives you that really emersive motorcycling experience but you have that chin bar on the helmet that allows you to just get a little more protectionfor both the elements and in the event of crashing. So were going to throw it up on the scale first things first this is with the chin bar installed and thefaceshield obviously, and it comes in at 3.7 pounds. So thats the weight that your looking at and this is a size large. This helmet is manufactured in two different shell sizes and its a polycarbonite shell. And lets see we will open up the facesheild here and youll see the first posistion it gives you a niceopening to just get a little more air flow underneath, and again there are no ratchets between that posistion and all the way up. You do have two posistions in the up posistion, they do go all the way up out of the way though with no ratchets between. The other thing youll notice while were on the faceshield hereis they have actually givin you an air intake vent built into the faceshield itself that you can open with this switch right here so you can open that up.Its going to direct air up on to the faceshield to help calm back fog, and thats one thing i will say with this faceshield being so large you know a goodportion of it is down in front of your mouth and fogging can tend to be a little bit more of an issue with a faceshield this size. However in the box isincluded a pin lock insert it might look alittle bit yellow but thats just because it has a protective film on it still. Esentially what that does is itinstalls on the inside of the shield in between these posts that you see here on the faceshield, and you can see the size of it is nice and large and its goingto go on the inside of the helmet and its going to cover just about the entire field of vision out of the helmet. What it does is it creates a dual paine effectso you have the inner shield and an outer faceshield with a thin bead of air to insulate the inside from the outside and it really does a great job at combattingfog and keeping your vision really clear. It is great as well for cold and wet weather riding conditions. Speaking of ventilation you also have a very unique looking new ventilation system up on the top of the N44. The N43 we do have a comparison video of the two that you can take a look at as well if your familiarwith the N43 you may wont to see a little head to head you can check that video out as well. It had an intake vent up at the top but it was certainly smallerthan this and the way this is configured it is actually fairly innovative. You have a center portion that is an air intake scoop thats going to be just likea ram air scoop pushes air down inside the helmet and opens up out the back for exhaust vents. But then these side vents that you open you might think thoseare intake vents as well but they're actually not, if you look at the top you can actually see there is some translucent material with air channels and passagesthat run through the top of the shell here. So these side vents actually dont funnel air down into the helmet, what they do is they force air through thesechannels creating more of an air flow through the back and over the back vents which helps to pull more air out the back of the helmet. So as your riding anarea of low pressure is created behind your head and that really helps to draw warm air out of the helmet and in turn draws more warm air through the front.So thats just a really effective way of keeping your head nice an cool and comfortable during colder weather rides. Now like we mentioned theres a few different configurations that you have for this helmet. The interior it features a climate comfort interior which is moisture wicking and very comfortable in all weatherconditions, it is also fully removable and washable. You do have a micro ratchet chip strap here which you can even operate with gloves on which is why i reallylike them they have tested these to be just as functional or just as strong as D-Rings you just kind of adjust the strap to where its comfortable for you andthen you have a ratcheting mechanism that is nice and secure. To remove it your just going to pull up on the red tab. But speaking of cold weather comfort you see where the neck roll comes in nice and tight which is going to help do a couple things. Its going to keep wind noises down cause it gives you a better sealaround your neck and around your cheeks, But also prevents unwanted wind and water from swirling up under the helmet and inside in front of your face. You alsohave a chin curtain installed permanatley on the chin bar itself, with these little deflectors here which again are pushing air away from this opening which is keeping the helmet even more quite. Now i mentioned you can run this helmet in two different configurations so lets take a look here, you have a button on eitherside the chin bar here. You press that and you can remove the chin bar very quick and easily, you can see the mechanism that holds it on right here on the sideis a simple hook and it does have a rubberized finish on the inside of the chin bar. Now you know this is deffinatly going to give you more protection than justan open face helmet would, it certainly will not have as much protection as a traditional full face helmet but it is obviously running with nothing on the frontof your face. Now you could run the helmet in this configuration no problem if you wonted to, just leave it kind of as a 3/4 helmet with a nice large faceshield or you could actually fully remove the outer shield all together and thats another thing they have really improved from the N43. The old version had a actualpanel that you had to remove and then a little piece that you had to take off and keep track of that came off. This you just have a trigger on the side and youcan see it just comes right off very quick and easy. And you have a couple options here, you can install these covers right here on the side of the helmet, youwanna put those on there just to try and clean up the look of the side of the helmet. You can run it in that configuration as a pure 3/4 open face helmet, andthen you can also remove these you just have to rotate it up out of the way and you can install this visor peak. Now to reinstall the shield or the visor peakyou can see i do have to move that trigger and get it pressed on and then once its on it will click into place. The visor peak is going to have two differentposistions. Now the previous version had a very short stubby visor, this one sticks out a little bit further and has a little bit more aggresive look with theseopenings here and its not only going to look nice but its also going to prevent wind from catching the front of this. Obviously in this configuration you caneasily run goggles or deploy the vision protection system which is one of the most popular features of this helmet. You have an internal sunvisor and they havemoved the mechanism from the side of the shell down to the bottom here. Its now spring loaded and you have two posistions you can slide it down to the first clickand its going to push pressurely to deploy it further if you need a little bit more coverage. And then like i said its spring loaded so push that button it retractsup out of the way. So thats going to make it very very versatile for any kind of weather conditions or lighting conditions, if your rides are taking you fromday time to night time you dont have to bring an extra shield with you, you can just deploy that when you need it, raise it up out of the way when you dont.You also are enabled for the N-Com system right here on the side ready to go so you can purchase the N-Com system seperatley and install it if you would like to.It does have speaker pockets and everything else already in the helmet here so you can install that communication system very easily. And then you notice theresalso these little openings here on the sides from where the chin bar goes in. If your going to keep the helmet in this configuration they give you these littlecovers that you can install there and thatll help keep down on wind noise as well so its not swirling wind up inside the shell of the helmet. So thats the firstlook at the Nolan N44. If you have any questions about this helmet you can check it out on our website at competitionaccessories.com. It is a great looking helmetand wether your running it as an open face or a full face helmet lots of different options this helmet actually has 6 different configurations you can run it in,makes it very versatile obviously in this hi-vis color its going to keep you nice and visible as well.

hey guys this is Reuben with competition accessories and welcome to our head to comparison of the Nolan n43e trilogy and the new Nolan n44 that replaces it. now looking at the helmets side by side you might notice there is a significant difference in changes they've made. just in the external appearance of the helmet obviously the ventilation system has be remapped on the n44. so those of you that were familiar with the n43 maybe you already had one or have been riding with it for a while and your thinking its time for an upgrade then the n44 is going to be a good choice for you. we are going to kind of walk through the different features now as far as fit and comfort goes i have to say they are very similar. they both use that climate comfort interior both have the micro ratchet chin strap. so as far as fit and feel goes they are very similar but the n44 has really done quite a bit of upgrades to the design. they've added a lot more features to it. it is a lot more aggressive in terms of the ventilation as well. now having said the only drawback to the n44 is the added weight. we will go ahead and get that out of the way because they have added to the n44 it does eigh a little bit more. this is the size large n43e and it comes in at 3.45 ibs, so your just under 3.5 ibs. which is a reasonably light weight helmet. you know thats a good weight for a helmet with the chin bar and the face shield installed. now same helmet with the chin bar and the face shield installed in the n44 and your looking at 3.7 lbs. so its gained a little bit of weight, but when i take a look at the different ventilation features and the other things that it is offering now and i can see where that weight came from. i can give it some forgiveness because of that. it does give you something in return with the extra weight. now the first thing you probably notice is the ventilation system on the top. let me spend this around so you can see how this works. not only do you have an intake scoop at the front of the n44 which is what you had on the n43 and the n43e trilogy. they also have incorporated these air channels that run along the top of the helmet and underneath and when you open these it directs air into the helmet and throughout the shell and out the back which it creates an additional vacuum and this helps draw warm out the back of the helmet increasing the amount of air flow going through the helmet. this is an innovative design on how their getting air into and out of the helmet. its definitely going to be more effective ventilation system than what you had on the n43e. you also have the ability to close the vent on the face shield. on the old n43e you just had an opening in the face shield and it was always open. the problem with that is sometimes its really cold and you dont want extra wind and water coming up inside the helmet without having a way to close it. it also causes a little bit more wind noise. so now you have the ability to open and close that with this 2 position switch on the front. the down side there is it will show you can kind of see it in your vision, when you have the helmet cracked like this. however let me go ahead and say that even though it is in your vision its low enough so that it is not distracting at all. if your used to wearing a full face helmet at all you typically have a breathe deflector thats right up above your nose and this is still below what that would be. its not dangerously in your vision but it is there. you have a smooth ratcheting mechanism or a no ratcheting mechanism, just a smooth operating system all the way to the detentes at the top of the helmet. which is going to be the same with what you ha din the previous version. they have given you a second detente at the top. it really doesnt do much for you since the shied is already raised all the way up. but it does give you that option of opening it a little bit further and then they both have that internal sun visor which is one of the most popular features for any helmet these days. that just allows you to have comfort in all kinds of lighting conditions you dont have to swap out the internal face shield but they have upgraded the mechanism. the n43e you just had a slider on the side here that was fully manual. now you have a slider on the base of the shell on the n44 that has 2 positions, so you have a first click and a second click to deploy it a little bit further if you want to and then you have a button spring loaded retraction which retracts it back up into the shell. this is a little bit more refined feeling. this is definitely a little bit smoother operation than on the side of the helmet. you dont have to use as much force to get it down and no force at all to get it up out of the way. little easier to find when your wearing the helmet its right here on the side and we mentioned swapping out face shields and thatch another thing they have really improved with the Nolan n44 and it uses a sliding switch on the side. you can see how that operates when i slide this forward the 3 arms retract and you do have to push it forward to get the shield back on. but its much more simple and much easier then what you had on the n43. the n43 you actually needed a tool to pop this plate off and then you had to rotate this side plate 90 degrees and it came off like so. now you have two little pieces you have to keep track of. obviously you can still swap it out so its not impossible to do. it just requires a little bit more fiddling around. also you have the pieces to lose and you dont want to lose those. you also had a visor peak you could swap out instead having a face shield you could have a visor peak. the visor peak that came with the n43e was fairly a short visor that honestly didnt do a whole lot and just gave you a little bit and also it was for looks on the helmet. you know if the sun happened to be coming in right at the specific angle it would help block the sun but you can tell its a fairly short visor. it is not going to be super effective at blocking sun light. the n44 gives you a little bit more aggressive looking visor sun peak with some openings in it. just a couple of things its a little longer which is a little bit better at blocking sunlight, its still not a full offload visor but this helmet is intended mainly for street use. they have given you some openings so air doesnt get caught underneath the visor. when you install it a opening is available so air can flow right through the visor and not be pulling on your head and causing unnecessary wind turbulence on the helmet itself. chin bar is still fully removable on both helmets. the n43e you have to pull up on these 2 levers and then you can pull the chin bar off . the n44 they have moved the mechanism on the chin bar itself so you push down on those buttons and you can remove the chin bar. the chin curtain on the n44 is now built in and it is not removable. that makes since because if you are going to be running the chin bar you are riding in more colder weather and it will protect you from the elements. and then this one you have an optional chin bar or a chin curtain you could install on the chin bar itself. so those are the main differences between the two as far as the insides go. very similar in terms of the fit and finish and comfort. the only other major change is the n-com system, they have changed out the base plate mechanism for that system on the side of the n43e so you wont be able to port your same system over to the new helmet. this uses the smaller n-com system. the n44 uses a different system than the n43e. you can check out the n44 on our website at competitionaccessories.com. also while they last we do have some n43e available on closeout they wont be around forever so if you like the looks of this helmet its definitely a fantastic helmet and value for the price its at right now. also dont forget you can earn up to 5% comp a cash back when you shop with us. we have great free shipping deals, easy exchange program, and no restocking fees. thanks for watching we will see you next time.
Information and Details about the Nolan N44 Tech Helmet
made by Nolan
The Nolan N44 is the latest evolution of the hugely popular N43E, and is updated in both function and design. The Nolan N44 is a fully modular helmet, ideally responding to the needs of expert motorcyclists and suitable for both summer and winter use. Designed for urban riding, the Nolan N44 is equally at home on a long journey or weekend getaway, and has a unique style that is at home on any bike. The N44 has six possible configurations which you can personalize through the addition or removal of the chin bar, faceshield and peak all of which are included.

With the chin bar and faceshield installed, the rider can expect the same benefits of a full face helmet. With just the peak and chin bar installed, the helmet flows a great amount of air while still providing the same protection of a full face helmet. With the chin bar, faceshield and peak removed it becomes a true three quarter open face helmet. This gives the rider a great range of flexibility.

Features:
  • New Ultrawide Pinlock ready faceshield gives the rider a greater field of vision
  • 2 position inner sun shield(VPS)

    Best helmet I've used - Colin   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Fit, comfort, features
    Cons: Can't lock to bike

    I've owned around 6 helmets and this one is the most comfortable and is the least affected by wind. The only issue is that, without a D-ring, it won't lock to my bikes helmet lock.

    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.

    Great helmet - Wingrider   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: versatile, comfortable, good looking
    Cons: [None]

    Had it for 1 month now and have a little over 2500 miles on it. Have used it in temperatures from 30 -80 degrees. Have tried every configuration and each has its merits. This is my second Nolan helmet, the other was modular with flip up bar. This Nolan fits much better out of the box, its made for those that don't have a perfectly round head who does. Cold temps - chin barface shield was very comfortable. Opened the vents and could really feel the air movement in the helmet can't wait to try out the 100 degree temps this summer. Got wamer dropped the chin bar and just had the face shield. This increased the noise level a little but not bad still very comfortable and didn't grab the wind. Removed the faceshield and put on the visor found these little plastic pieces in the bag. They go into the area that the chin bar fits in. Really cuts down on the wind noise . Guess I should read the manual but you won't either. Still haven't put in the fog shield but unless your breathing hard or your nose is stopped up you shouldn't need it. The old Nolan had a little over a 100,000 miles on it. Hope this one is up for the challenge

    Nolan N44 Helmet - Glenn   MO Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good fit and many features
    Cons: None

    This is my third Nolan helmet and everyone was excellent. I have a square head and many helmets pinch in at the cheeks. The Nolan doesn't and fits perfectly. The built in sun visor is handy. The helmet has the best visibility of any helmet I've owned. The price was right. I plan to add the N-Com to the helmet soon.

    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.

    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.

    n44 - lds   IN Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: more room for mic.
    Cons: looks larger acct. vents on top

    I have both n43 trilogy and n44. both fit same. more ventilation with n44. I had trouble with mic room on the n43 but n44 is better. n44 is the same with noise at least without chin bar installed. it has been too warm to put bar on for long ride yet.

    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.


    This review is for Nolan N44 Hi-Visibility Yellow and Orange Helmet
    Nolan N44 - Spotsaplenti4   NC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Increased range of vision. Multiple helmet types in one. Chin strap.
    Cons: Chin bar lock.

    This makes my 6th helmet and I finally found one that I really like. The increased vision range either with or without the face shield is great. Chin bar removal is easy and makes putting the helmet on much more comfortabe. Unless it's raining I prefer to ride without the face shield and it is easily removed and installed. I really wanted to give the helmet 5 stars, but it does have one small problem. It is hard to tell if the chin bar is locked in place when it is reinstalled.

    Darn Near Perfect - Rick   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Fit, Accessories, Air flow adjustments, it's ALL there
    Cons: New chin strap connector

    Replaced several years old N43 with this new N44. Agree with everything in other reviews. This one gets an A. Multi position visor is great for hot weather riding over 80 deg. One click open below 45 mph allows great air circulation and cooling buffets a bit above that but when fully closed, absolutely rock steady at almost any speed. New topside air vents are much more effective, making a huge difference in summer riding. I suspect with lower chin line on visor I removed chin bar even riding in rain will be comfortable and dry. My only complaint is that the chin strap release mechanism is redesigned and not as sturdy and I cannot get it to lengthen enough to get to 4th locking click as suggested with instructions. Otherwise I'd have granted an A. Same size fit perfectly bit of cheek squeeze that will reduce with some wear-in. I highly recommend this helmet as both Nolan's are far and away the most comfortable I've ever had. Oh, and you cannot feel any weight difference despite the N44 being a couple of ounces heavier. The N44 appears to be an excellent value, given its features and I believe you'll be happy to have one

    Great View - Marty B   CO Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Wide view. Removable chinbar. Internal sun visor.
    Cons: Chin strap too close to neck.

    Overall, a good-to-great helmet. I laid the bike down on a turn and it protected me fine. I have a 7 38 head and a large fits perfect. However, I need to remove the removable chin bar in order to put in on my head. Otherwise, it bends my ears and I have to stick a finger up there to massage them back to normal position. The modularity of the helmet is a plus, but I don't anticipate using it other than a full-face helmet, or 34 helmet in the summer. Internal sun visor is great - not too dark, not too light. It has two extraction settings... I always extract it to the max it could go a bit lower, however. Vents are OK - they simply allow air to be sucked out can't feel any air circulate. Chin vent is good enough to minimize fogging. The wide and open face shield was my biggest pro in purchasing the helmet no more periscope effect with other helmets. Noise is tolerable. Chin strap digs into my neck a bit, however. Overall, a good buy. I'd buy it again.

    Finally See where you're riding. - WarCog   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Amazing field of view, Great styling, Light weight, Easily convertible, Pin lock inner visor.
    Cons: Wind noise, Price, Chin Strap.

    The helmet feels large, but the fit for me was exactly as depicted in the chart. I ordered the N44 solid in the Lava Gray finish. I would describe it as a matt varnish finished, dark gray with silver metallic flakes mixed in. In the sunlight the helmet looks flat neutral gray, but has a bit of metallic sparkle. NOT flat black, NOT silver. It seems unique to me, and matches nicely a black or silver bike or jacket. It is also a neutral enough color that it works well with brightly colored bikes or jackets. The helmet outer shell is BIG, and quite round in shape. But it is lighter than it looks. The best thing about it is the face shield field of view which is nothing short of AMAZING. I would repurchase the helmet again, based solely on that field of view feature alone. I ride because I love to sightsee and this is the helmet for adventure touring, if you are into looking at the country through which you are traveling. The shield quality is excellent, bright and clear with ZERO distortion. I honestly very literally forget I am wearing a helmet at all while I am riding, and in some respects can hardly tell if the shield is up or down. The Pin Lock inner shield is also stellar if you ride in fogging conditions. I have not yet even deliberately been able to fog the inner shield in any condition, temperature, humidity. Be advised, this helmet is very NOISY. It has forced me to wear earplugs. Probably 4-5X more noisy than my full face Shoei. I even found the helmet greatly magnifies the sound of the motor of my bike. I have pulled over more than once to remove the helmet just to check the engine of my bike for the amplification made the engine noise much more pronounced. The ease and speed of the N44's convertibility is outstanding. You can transform the helmet to any configuration in seconds, due to the superb design of the face shield attachment mechanism. The chin strap takes very careful adjustment as it can be hard and biting under the chin, and the throat area. After several adjustments it no longer gives me any issues at all. The ratchet design of this strap is very sturdy and nicely made, and fast on and off. The chin bar feels flimsy in a way, but it does its job. The face shield gasket seal is excellent. I would buy this helmet and other Nolan products again. I'm very pleased overall with the N44.

    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.

    Nolan NCom B4 - Flying Tiger   NC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    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.....
