Nolan N43 Trilogy

Hi All,

Looking for opinions and wear experience from anyone who uses this helmet. I'm considering the new version of this, the N43E Trilogy, which is just hitting the stores.

Thanks,
T

Re: Nolan N43 Trilogy

The first and last helmet I will own will be a Nolan. I have the 102. I too liked the styling of the N43. So much so I purchased one somewhere for $200 and change.

The helmet sucks! lol... With the chin bar attached, I could not put my head in. My Mic was so close to my chin I took a drimel out and made a hole for it to hide in, its noisy as hell (wind) and I did not like the headphone covers (pockets the headphones rest behind) as they covered the headphones and dulled the sound...

I attempted to pawn it off on others for cost, but in the end told my wife she got a new helmet and used her's (hell it was practically new)...

While she does not like the style, she likes the helmet. Its lighter, and the visibility (I agree) is great, even with the chin bar in place...

So there you go.. my two cents...
