I was a full face HJC guy for a number of years having several but they always wore the hair off the front of my head (hot spot) by summers end, i didn’t know any better. Then I bought my 1st Nolan, what revelation with the modular design ! But it was quite a bit louder and leaked in the rain, Nolan worked on it several times but never got it quiet or dry in the rain. When the n90 came out with the drop down sun shield I bought one, very comfy but very noisey even with ear plugs ( I always wear them) but only in the left ear picket, the right side was quiet and it leaked badly.
2 trips back to Nolan for them to look at it and try to fix it but after the second trip with no better results they (Nolan) announced that they had done all they were going to do and didn’t want me to contact/complain to them again. Yes I was courteous to them, yelling and swearing will get you nowhere !
So I now ride with a Skorpion 3000gt, most comfy helmet I’ve ever had, bar none, but it also leaked in the rain, is noisey (not as bad as my last Nolan) and the anti-fog shield coating really doesn’t work well.
If I keep riding I’m going to need to buy a new helmet at some point but I’m not sure what I’ll get, I was leaning towards. Schuberth but have read some things that are not flattering for what I think is a very expensive helmet. We’ll see ! But it’ll definitely be a modular whatever it is.
Red 2014A, the fastest color !
Ride more,, worry less !
