Customer Reviews for Nolan N87 Rapid N-Com - Flat Lava Grey / Red

Nolan N87 Rapid N-Com - Flat Lava Grey / Red
October 8, 2020

Cheap is no longer cheap...

I always have Arai's but my most recent (Rebel) just didn't fit well and after a few wears, where usually it would have bedded in it was just as bad. I looked at alternatives and at first bought a Scorpion helmet from Demon Tweaks. That was a mistake. It came damaged and after poor comm's and a struggle to get any help this was returned (lesson learnt). Back I came to SPORTSBIKESHOP as they always offer a great service. I looked at 'cheap' helmets, specifically with a dark insert as I do get fed up of forever carrying a spare visor. I also stuck t helets with solid reviews and this was a RIDE 'BEST BUY'. So, I came accross this one. It's rated 4 star by SHARP so that's great. I haven't yet been out with it, it was a back up helmet after all and so last time I wore my Arai again, still no good. I'll be wearing this next time. First impressions are that cheaper helmets have come on a long way. The quality and finish seem very good and the lining plush. My Freecom set in place easily enough and so all that needs to follow is to actually wear it whilst on the bike, pretty important really to give a proper review but not sure when I'll next get out on the bike and thought I better respond to the request for feedback. In summary, this helmet looks and feels like a more expensive helmet, not quite like my old Arai's but then neither is my latest Arai... I'm happy to recommend on my experience this far and at this price how can you go wrong

Great helmet but not in the pouring rain

This helmet should receive a higher mark - everything is good about this helmet, the fit, the comfort, the materials the way both visors work (ratchet system), style and comms & brake light (you can get an auto sensing brake light for the back of the helmet) accessories are all there. And for the money it's hard to beat. However, 3 things let it down for me. The visor leaked when in the pouring rain (I was on the NC500 at the time) - so not great, but it did a good job of clearing that as soon as it stopped or the rain got lighter, the helmet has good ventilation. I found the sun visor switch a little fiddly compared to others I've used. But it's ok, it's a minor point. The paint work finish,, whilst good and looks an attractive helmet, isn't to the standard you get with Shoei, AGV, Arai etc. It's worth noting this kid gets a 4 out of 5 stars in the sharp safety test. Which is good. If you ride mostly in the dry, and let's face it most of us do, then this lid is a bargain, if you're an all year round rider it might be a different story.

Superb bit of kit.

This helmet is a superb bit of kit, snug fit, far less buffeting than previous helmets I've owned. Came with a visor pinlock installed and I can say the drop down visor is excellent, good clear vision I actually forgot it was down.Took mine on a 600 mile round trip just last week and it performed excellently. I cannot recommend this helmet enough.

First helmet- very happy

I was very worried about buying my first helmet but I have found this great. Great fit, easy chin strap fastener. Easy operation of sun visor. Takes my glasses too.

Second time buying the same helmet

After thinking about switching helmets and receiving two different types from Sportsbikeshop and not being happy with either, I decided to stick to the same helmet I previously had...a Matt black Nolan N87. Sent the other helmets back and ordered a new(different colour) Nolan and am again super happy as the helmet fits me perfectly and has everything that I need. Nice to know that it is still a very safe helmet too after doing some more research on the matter. Excellent service from the vendor. Thanks guys!

Good price, second helmet

I bought it although already having one N87 because I needed to replace it (and update the graphics) due to normal "hand falls" that nicked it a little. Never get disapointed with this helmet nor Nolan, it's a quality product for the best price possible. Would buy it again for a 3rd time if they don't update it too

Second time I buy it!

It's my second Nolan N87. My first one was stolen unfortunately, after two years using it everyday. I was not really taking care of it and even so it was still in good condition. Italian design doesn't disappoint ;)

Attractive good value

The helmet is good for the price comfortable and the dark visor is great. My only concern is were the visor is the forehead of the the helmet deforms but I guess this is due to the double shell so I'm guessing this is absolutely fine

Noisey but comfy

Really nice fitting helmet, light, easy to use visor, brilliant chin strap but it's not the quietest of helmets at speeds above 60mph (in fact it stops me going above 60 it's that loud!) and the vent that flows air to your mouth area isn't the best, recirculating your bad bike breath mainly. I wish I had spent more with one of the top brands but it's an OK mid range helmet I have a Shoei xr1000 which is very old, it's lighter, quieter and more aerodynamic. If I had realised how bad this Nolan is I wouldn't of dropped down in brands! Instead of a Nolan, wait for a top brand helmet to sell on offer (even if you don't like the design) and I promise you will be better off. Even if it's bright pink at least your ears won't bleed.

Great companies are born out of great passions. Nolan has always meant "passion for two wheels". The history of Nolan began in 1972 when Lander Nocchi, an entrepreneur in the motorbike and car accessories sector, decided to produce motorcycle helmets that could be lighter and more affordable than those on the market at the time. He purchased, from a company in the United States, an innovative plastic material, Lexan, which was light and versatile, and started producing polycarbonate helmets. In the following 37 years, other important ideas have been put into production, and they proved to be well known and highly valued products by thousands of customers in more than 70 countries around the globe.
