Nolan N20 Caribe Helmet
Great open face lid for longer heads
I was looking for a helmet for urban riding that would offer some style while fitting under the seat of my vespa. The N20 has a quality feel with great finish, features and is surprisingly light. It also fits my slightly long head which immediately rules out a lot of lids. Vision is excellent although the visor shape does mean its breezy on the eyes by 40mph. Protection seems relatively good - for an open face.
Overall very happy with this lid - Revzilla price and shipping time was faultless.

Comfortable, lightweight, safe, and looks awesome.
The Nolan n20 helmet is awesome, makes me look like a fighter pilot. I feel like Tom Cruise in Top Gun when I wear it. It is very comfortable and obviously well made. The chin strap is very easy to use, much better than the traditional strap. It is tight around the ears, blocking out a lot of noise, but it is still very comfortable. My only complaint is the wind visor does very little. Its almost like it is not there. I guess it will block bugs but my eyes were still tearing up as if I had no protection at all. Overall though it looks awesome and is super comfortable and safe.

Sizing was tight.
First, as usual, the process through Revzilla was awesome. The product was quickly delivered, as promised. The helmet is very sharp looking, and it goes especially well with my Cafe` Racer. I'm definitely styling riding down the street with this helmet. Unfortunately, the fit isn't great. There are pressure points across my forehead and ears that, after about an hour, really become noticeable and uncomfortable. I've tried adjusting the inside liner, but it hasn't done anything. Since I've worn it, returning it is not an option. This will have to be my "short ride" helmet.

very happy with this helmet so far. comfortable, fits well. i find the 3/4 the right balance for me and this feels secure and well made. only complaint is that the goggle style visor, which i sought out for style, is a little distracting in the line of vision. otherwise, a great helmet for the price. and cute for a vespa rider too.

Helmet would be perfect if a full face visor was available
Wanted an old school Iook to go with my 1973 Triumph Tiger 750. I first bought the Bell custom 500 and thought that fit a rounder head but I ended up with the Nolan which has a very round fit, perfect fit but make sure it's snug because after 3-4 rides mine has loosened slightly. Very comfortable and liner pulls sweat away from head. Wind noise is on the loud side, I use ear plugs for long rides. Visor works o.k and is very clear but it's to windy too use alone, need glasses as well or my eyes are watering within minutes. Ratchet strap is great. Finish is perfect but flat black shows fingerprints which I figure is normal for any flat black paint job. Overall very happy but will probably buy a full face for long rides.
