Nolan N40-5 GT Classic N-Com - Metal White
Customer Product Reviews
Haven't had a Nolan helmet for years, forgotten how well they fit! This could end up being my 'go to' helmet, excellent visibility, chin guard is easy to remove and fit, aerodynamics are really good and have cut down wind buffeting by a good 60%! Add to this Sportsbikeshop's excellent service, couldn't have wished for better!
Nicer than I expected
Nice light helmet with fantastic wide visor. The peak seems to be OK at speed and doesn't catch the wind. There is a slight amount of wistle when I turn my head at speed but since I always wear ear plugs it isn't an issue. The removable chin piece is excellent. I have taken it off to buy petrol but it's a bit difficult to slot it back in place when you're still wearing the helmet. I'm sure I'll get better at it.
Tested and better than anticipating
Have tried this helmet in most weather now but not yet on motorway. Have used with and without chin bar. I was amazed how quiet it was in all modes even with the peak on, which has been surprisingly useful with the sun being low at this time of year. Surprisingly lightweight and I like the diversity of it, ride classic bike with open face and newer bike full face, range of vision is amazing. Previous helmet was Caberg duke flip front. Had a bit of a glitch with first helmet in that the rainstrip kept pulling off and had problem with pinlock but as usual Sportsbikeshop on case and very prompt in replacing and have been happy with purchase.
The helmet to get if you wear glasses
Pop the chin piece out and stick the lid right on your head with glasses on sweet as! Main reason why I got this helmet. It is comfy and fits very well. Good field of vision. Took the plastic flap off as the drop down dark visor does the job perfectly, no need for an extra flap. I will get the white one for better vis for drivers and the black carbon fibre Great value.
Tried and tested
My second Nolan N40-5Gt, replaced due to crash . Front wheel of SUV ripped off visor and peak, but failed to crush helmet. Saved my head. Always liked these helmets, sun visor excellent during low winter sun, coupled with wide visor offering excellent peripheral vision. Ventilation good too.
Great helmet, but...
This is my first helmet and I picked it because of all the options and an amazing field of view. It is easy to disassemble and is extremely comfortable. The only problem I have is with the sun visor lever. It's quite small and flimsy and because of that it bends when you lower and raise the visor, sometimes so much that it jams...maybe it's just my helmet but it is quite annoying.
Good field of view
Good well made helmet. Love that you can take off the chin guard and the Cool air flow system keeps you head nice and cool on Hot days. Good field of view. Removable chin bar for warm days and peak both removable and adjustable up or down. Great value for the price. and quick service from Sportsbikeshop, quick delivery, thanks Guys and Girls :-)
Ordered two N40-5-GT helmets, but received one GT and one none GT. Checked the box's and found the wrong label had been applied to one at Sportsbikeshop. Had to wait for delivery from supplier before receiving the second helmet. Just as well the returns system works so well. However we are happy with the product, and the voucher went someway to make up for the silly error.
