Until now I had been using another brand. It didn’t have certain features that I wanted in my helmet, but it was serving its main functions. Nolan helmets are considered one of the top line helmet brands, so this time I decided to go for a Nolan helmet only. It received a good review from my friends and those who are already using Nolan. So, finally I bought a Nolan 102 helmet.
One thing I would like to say that Nolan definitely offers a wide range of products in various colors and designs and with different features. After using only, one gets to know the plus and minus points of a product. These helmets have a fine finishing but at the same time it is prone to scratches and marks as it has a soft surface. Helmet is good if it is used for a short period but it causes discomfort in long rides. The reason behind this is that chin level is very close to helmet and it may cause frequent frictions on moving sides or a little movement. My Nolan helmet also has a problem with noise.
This is true that Nolan helmets are worth to any weather. Except extreme cases of heavy rain, it is watertight. Another thing I noticed and appreciated greatly is providing with enough manuals. There were about 5-6 manuals. These manuals contain all operating instructions that how to use it, every important warning on proper use, directions for use of the micro lock strap retention system, instructions for the fog resistant inner visor, explanation of working of jet stream wing ventilation etc. I mean to say that every possible piece of information they can give is printed on its manuals.
I would conclude my overall shopping experience with Nolan helmets good and worth the money.
