Proper helmet fit?
After weeks of driving to every dealer in a 50 mi radius to look at every helmet available, we both bought the new Nolan 102 full face helmets. I first started wanting the 3/4 helmet, but the Nolan's just did not feel right and was going to get the XXL.
During the process, a rep for one of the helmets convinced us on how to best fit, regardless of what brand we bought. I ended up with a L.
Well, my 102 helmet fits pretty darn good, that is until I tried to use a balaclava for the colder temps.
One question is, why do they not provide some kind of air bladder or adjustable spacing in the helmets to allow for something like this and offer some adjustment with the liners.
I also have not figured out how to use their supplied anti fog lens.
Had I bought one size bigger, the helmet would not have fit without using something inside it.
I can't afford to buy another $300 helmet at this point, so if it is too cold to ride without the warm liner, I will have to stop riding.
Just curious if anyone else has run into this, and come up with an inexpensive solution.
A word of caution: I attempted to adjust the vent on the top of the helmet when driving and got the finger of my glove stuck in the vent, closed. Won't be doing that again.
