Nolan N-103: Awful - don't buy
Because of it's good reputation, becuase it is made in Italy, and becuase I it has Bluetooth support I bought a Nolan 103. If was so nice to wear!
It turned out to be a serious mistake!
The helmet is awfully noisy. Below are the modifications I have had to do to keep it from ending directly as a 200 euro flower pot.
If you look carefully at the image above you will notice the following:
On the second image you can see the minimum modifications you have to do to the helmet to use it beyond walking speed. This is ugly, to say the least
Furthermore, if you inspect the helmet you will find that the opening in which the sun-shield slides, is a full cm too long; a lot of noise enteres here. You will also notice that below you chin, where the helmet closes, there is no rubber sealing, and a lot of noise enteres.
I would strongly advice against buying a Nolan helmet without trying it first. Trying while riding, that is!
Edit: After riding with my (UGLY) modifications, it is still not as quiet as my 8 years old BMW System helmet. How can a new helmet be worse than an old one? Stay away!
