Nolan N100-5 Consistency N-Com - Metal White
Customer Product Reviews
An improved classic
There are several feature of the Nolan N100-5 that are an improvement over the N104. I like the improved peripheral vision and really like the adjustable sun visor. Like the 104 this helmet fits well and although a little heavy (like most modular helmets), this was never an issue.
Haven't had it for long but delighted with it so far. The look and feel is of a quality product. The visor and flip front clunk and click in a very reassuring way, as do the vents and sunshade, all of the moving parts. Field of view is very impressive. Sunshade comes down the perfect distance without touching my nose. I don't have much to compare it to and I ride a faired bike but it doesn't seem to be overly noisy to me. Did an hour or so in zero degree freezing conditions the other day with no misting up. Only downside is that with the neck collar part attached I can barely get the thing on or off, even without it attached it's a tight squeeze. Can't really mark it down for that though as that's just my head, and it does make it feel more secure once it is on.
5/5 would buy again
Sturdy feeling helmet with great anti-fog and ventilation. Chin bar feels really well made and slides into place like nothing. Also, the chin lock is great, although might require getting used to it at first. Only negative thing about this helmet I can say is that if you want an intercom system other than Nolan n-com, it might get tricky. The helmet has places for the speakers, but the slot is sealed and can be only opened with a special tool that comes with Nolan n-com. Well, that is at least what they say.. But I got my speakers a little off from my ears, since there isn't any padding between the speaker and my ear so I can still hear fine and without the speakers pressing against my ears. Of course this is a problem with every helmet that has their own intercom, so no surprises there! All in all, excellent helmet.
3rd Nolan Helmet I have had in a row - waited for this new model to come out to change this year. Very happy with quality and fit - great for communications too because it already has cut outs for speakers. Quite and comfy helmet. Sportsbikeshop had all the sizes in for me to try and all the colours - great service at a great price.
