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

Information and Details about the Nolan N86 Rapid Helmet
made by Nolan
The Nolan N86 is the new full-face helmet by Nolan characterized by its sporty, streamlined designed, compact volume, extensive standard equipment and close-fit comfort. The N86 is equipped with an inner sun visor (VPS), Pinlock® anti-fog visor with silicone-sealed profile, removable/washable inner comfort padding, Microlock2 (patent pending) double lever retention system. This system consists of a thermoplastic ergonomic opening lever, and a second aluminum toothed and holding lever. The toothed lever releases the micrometric strip, thus the chin strap can only be open with a very broad rotation of the opening lever. This device minimizes the possibility of unintentional opening of the retention system.

  • Lightweight aerodynamic polycarbonate shell with built in spoiler
  • VPS system is slider bar activated with the internal shield both scratch and anti-fog coated
  • Fully removable, multicolor, washable Clima-comfort interior is treated to be anti fungal and anti-microbial
  • Separate cheek pads for custom fitting options
  • The Eyewear-Adaptive feature accommodates eyeglasses
  • Reflective patch on the back neck-roll increases rider safety at night.
  • Dual top vents with exhaust in rear spoiler and chin-bar vents operate with glove-friendly sliders
  • Chin vents direct air across faceshield to help prevent fogging
  • Optically correct, push button quick change shield offers UV 400 protection

    GREAT HELMET getting it was not - CJ   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Looks, Comfort, Weight, Wind drag
    Cons: some wind noise over 60 mph. sun visor could be darker.

    I finally got it. I pre ordered in august for 170. they advertised the wrong price so I had to pay 210, I thought that was B.S. they should have gave it to me at the price they said. I was told I would get it first week in September. the date of arrival changed many times. I got it today my riding season is almost over. The helmet is great for my first ride. most comfortable ive owned, and zero chin lift or drag. the visor liking system is strong, and has a great city option that opens it just a touch. I recommend this helmet, even at 250 its a great deal.

    great helmet - woody   NJ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: comfortable, fitfinish, visor, pin lock
    Cons: could use a little better ventilation

    For this price range I was very pleasantly surprised with the overall fit finish. Even my wife commented on it. The internal visor mechanism works very well and I also like the city position and pin lock on the visor. The fitliner is very comfortable. The cheek pads are a little thicker than I would like that's pretty much normal for me and helmets but that is very easily addressed by just popping in thinner ones they have four thicknesses to choose from. Only improvement I would like to see is a little better ventilation. The top vents seem to do a good job of capturing air but I think the flow path inside the helmet doesn't make the best use of it. Overall a great helmet at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

    This review is for Nolan N-Com B1 Bluetooth Communication System for N91 N90 N85 N86 N43E Helmets
    N-Com B1 review - K1200LT guy   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent sound quality at speed, piece of cake to use, unobtrusive on the helmet
    Cons: [None]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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