Oh I know I left myself wide open with that opening line so go ahead and take your best shot.
I've worn an open faced helmet most of my life, my favorite the Arai M series.
A couple of weeks ago we took a ride to the Helmet store in Daytona Beach Florida and purchased a pair of Nolan 102's modular Helmets and they installed the clampless intercom speakers and mic
I am very disappointed with this helmet,
the largest size it comes in is a 2X
my head is bigger than that, at first I didn't mind wearing it,
thought I could get used to it but my chin was pressed up against the chin bar and after a couple of hours that got real uncomfortable.
In the following days I removed the chin pad and cut out a place for the microphone as it had a tendency to press into my mouth (no room)
I had to re-adjust the vox on the com system because the helmet is so noisy it would constantly activate the mic.
The venting was very good, with the face shield slightly cracked and the top vent open it was actually cooler than my open face.
After a few hours my ears were ringing from the noise.
After 3-4 days the Nolan got put on the shelf and I'm back to my Arai,
is there a modular helmet out there that has more "face" room and is not as noisy?
