Replacing the Nolan N103, arguably one of the better modular helmet options available, is no easy task. We believe Nolanhas achieved this by improving on the N103 with the Nolan N104 Modular Helmet. Thinner, lighter, aerodynamic, and better optics are only a few of the improvements Nolan has put into this new helmet.
Modular helmets are a bit heavier to begin with, however with an all new shell that is just under 4 lbs for a size large, the N104 is helmet noticeably lighter than the N103. Two shell sizes, comprised of injected polycarbonate GE Lexan, encompass the complete size range with one shell for 2XS-LG, and the other for XL-3XL.
The inner shield mechanism is all new and much easier to use. A single slide to lower the inner dark smoke shield and a push button release to retract the shield back into the shell.
To lift the chinbar, Nolan has implemented a two-step process to prevent accidental opening. To release it, pull the red lower lip out, which triggers a small, red, recessed tab that is squeezed while holding the lower one and lift. The chinbar locks into place making it a legal 3/4 helmet while riding at speed. Nolan has designed the helmet so that it is still aerodynamically efficient even with the chin bar in the upright position, ensuring a comfortable ride no matter what mode you have the helmet in.
Nolan has increased the overall eyeport area and included a Pinlock ready shield along with a Pinlock fog-free insert.
