Nolan N44 Tech Helmet

The Nolan N44 Tech Helmet is the latest evolution of the hugely popular N43E, and is updated in both function and design. The Nolan N44 is a fully modular helmet, ideally responding to the needs of expert motorcyclists and suitable for both summer and winter use. Designed for urban riding, the Nolan N44 Tech is equally at home on a long journey or weekend getaway, and has a unique style that is at home on any bike.

The N44 has six possible configurations which you can personalize through the addition or removal of the chin bar, faceshield and peak all of which are included. With the chin bar and faceshield installed, the rider can expect the same benefits of a full face helmet. With just the peak and chin bar installed, the helmet flows a great amount of air while still providing the same protection of a full face helmet. With the chin bar, faceshield and peak removed it becomes a true three quarter open face helmet. This gives the rider a great range of flexibility.

Features:

  • Ultrawide Pinlock ready faceshield gives the rider a greater field of vision (included)
  • Clear Pinlock faceshield and lens included
  • 2 position inner sun shield (VPS)
  • 2 Shell Sizes
  • Protective Chin Guard
  • Central Ventilation System
  • Airbooster Airflow System
  • Microlock2 (patent pending) double lever retention system
  • Polycarbonate Outer Shell
  • Inner Comfort Padding
  • Visor Air Intake
  • DOT Approved

A very nice, versatile helmet.
Been looking for a helmet to replace an HJC FS-15 Carbon, which was getting a bit old in the tooth, but was a great helmet, as far as I'm concerned (except for the cheap plastic on the vents#. I've also owned a Nolan N102 and a Akuma GhostRider full-face helmet in the past. I was tempted by the N43, but when I heard the N44 was coming out, I decided to wait and try it out. For reference, I'm currently riding a Tiger 800 w/ a Madstad windscreen, and have had the helmet for about 2 weeks / 300 miles. Overall, I'm pretty happy with it, but do have a few nitpicks.

Out of the box, the M-sized helmet #same size as my HJC# fit well. There is a bit more material around the ear pockets, which is weird at first, but not really uncomfortable. The fit and finish are much improved over my N102, and I like the graphics #which, of course, are a personal preference#. The chin guard does feel a bit close to my lips/chin, but not it's not that much closer than my other full-face helmets. If you have a more pronounced chin or jaw, I can see it being an issue for you, though.

The giant shield is great #mostly...#! Visibility is awesome, but it does tend to fog up easily in cooler weather without the Pinlock in. With the Pinlock, there's a huge area of non-fogged shield to look through, but at night there's a bit more glare off of lights. When inserting the Pinlock, be careful, though... I had one of the pins pop out and go flying off, so I had to call Nolan USA and get a replacement #they were great and sent me some new pins free of charge, btw!#. The sun shield, which I sort of considered a novelty, seems to work OK and comes down far enough, IMO, to not be distracting. One thing about the shield, though, is that there's no 'half-way' stop. If you want to scratch your nose while on the bike, if you don't push it all the way up #a relatively long throw with this shield# to where it is no longer protecting your eyes, it will drop down on your hand as you reach under.

Like on my Nolan N201, I do like the ratcheting chin strap, though the one on the N44 is narrower. Others have said this style strap feels like they're being garroted, but no problem as far as rubbing my neck for me.

On the bike, the helmet feels well balanced and the weight isn't noticeable #comparing to my carbon fiber FS-15#. The chin guard, because of the way it angles down a bit, tends to bump my shoulders when turning my head and catch on my jacket, but with the peripheral view I don't need to turn my head quite as much. Hopefully, I'll develop a 'technique' to minimize this.

Sound - I was hoping this helmet would be quieter than my current helmet, though I wasn't holding my breath. I would say it's about the same as my FS-15, though the tone of the wind noise is a bit deeper. There's a slight gap in the padding at the base of the neck in the back that seems to let in a lot of noise. Noise is also worse on the left side, possibly from a gadget I have mounted on my handlebars, but with my FS-15, I never noticed a difference from left to right. I guess I'll be continuing to wear plugs on anything longer than a short ride.

Ventilation - This is something I'm pretty disappointed with so far, as I was hoping for something better given all the big scoops on the helmet. The chin vent on the shield lets in a minimal amount of air, and I think it's pretty useless with the vent position of the shield letting in a good amount of air. The top vents don't seem to work much at all #maybe a bit as I tilt my head down?#, though hopefully that will improve as I break in the padding. I'll experiment more with the vents in conjunction with my windscreen in the spring. There is also a lot of air coming through the chin curtain, which may be OK in warmer weather, but I wish the material of the curtain was more solid now in the cooler months. A balaclava would probably solve this and the gap at the base of the neck mentioned earlier, though I didn't usually wear one with my other helmets unless it was really cold. BTW, out of all my helmets, I think my Akuma GhostRider vented the best.

I haven't tried mounting my SENA headset yet, but there are small 'pockets' carved-out of the foam liner under the padding for speakers. I don't know if the SENA speakers will fit, though... The clamp base might not work, though, and I will probably need to use the stick-on base option. I plan on using the wired mic, as I don't ever really plan on removing the chin guard and just wearing this as a FF helmet.

So basically, I was hoping for a 'better' helmet than my FS-15 in at least some ways. Though I'm generally happy with the N44, what I think I got was just a 'different' helmet. It's not any quieter, it doesn't #so far# seem to have better ventilation, but the view out the shield is definitely better, and the color is much more visible.

My favorite helmet I've ever owned!
I LOVE the versatility of this helmet. For me, it's like having 3 different helmets in one. My last was a Shoei Multitec which was nice, but pretty boring compared to this one.

Here is how I use the configurations:
Summer around town:
open faced (shield removed completely) with the visor and integral sunglasses. I love the wind in my face.

Summer touring:
open faced with the chin bar, visor and I wear my own sunglasses (since at high speed, wind creeps around the integral sunglasses and irritates my eyes). I can ride with the visor up if it may rain, or just removed if I'm sure it won't.

Winter:
Same as summer touring thanks to my high windshield. If it's really cold, I'll put the visor down too. The huge windshield fogs very easily and I forgot my pinlock insert on my last trip, so I didn't get to try it. I had to leave the visor cracked to clear the fog, otherwise I couldnt' see at all. I'll try the included insert next time.

I gave it a 3-star for comfort due to the difficulty putting it on/off. I always have to take off the chin bar (which allows the helmet to open wider) to get it over my ears. Once it's on, it's very comfortable. I've gotten used to doing this.

Overall, I love this helmet and I'm very happy with my purchase!

Good Helmet with a Compromise
After a lot of research I ended up buying the N44 helmet for its multi-functionality. I was looking for a dual-sport helmet for my KTM 990 and on that bike I ride 70% street and 30% dirt. I was looking for a helmet between full street and full dirt and this seemed to fit the bill. The configuration options are great and I like taking the face bar off when it gets really hot. Field of view with this helmet is excellent. The helmet is noisy but I wear ear plugs so it's no biggy. One concern I have is on the 2nd day of use the drop-down tinted visor detached from the mechanism (then got scratched) so I had to manually push it up for the remaining trip. I'm not sure it's a true "dirt helmet" but everything has a compromise. I also can't tell when the vents are open or closed. Otherwise, I would give it 5 stars. I hope this helmet can stand the test of time.

Good helmet-Glad I purchased
After reading a few negative reviews I decided to spring for it anyways and...ALMOST returned it. Why? The chin strap was uncomfortable. But there was so much MORE to like I figured out a fix. I just gently heated up the plastic part and slightly conformed it (rounded it) to fit over my adams apple. Done deal.

The negative reviews regarding the interior sun shield not dropping down far enough I think were mistakenly given by folks who didn't try the helmet ON THE BIKE. Once on the bike your in a certain position that the visor (IMHO) drops down far enough to be effective. The ventilation I thought was pretty good so long as your on the move. Maybe could be improved a tad. But the weight and visibility! I LOVE those aspects. My previous helmet was a pound heavier so maybe thats why I got so excited about this ones weight. Honestly, for the modular design, the cool styling and the visibility aspects alone I think its a great helmet.

Average helmet-nothing special-Save your money
Road visibility in this helmet is superb. Almost like not wearing a helmet at all. Options are more than what I or most will ever need. Finish is very nice.

Contrary to all the hype, venting is good but not as great as expected.
With this said:
The N44 is very noisy, squeaky and rattles from just about everywhere. This helmet is horrible above 50 MPH. And useless on the highway. The lack of aerodynamics is apparent even from 45 mpg. If your looking for a helmet to use only on local roads and you will stay at low speeds then this is a great helmet for that purpose. Anything above local riding choose something else.

I like the helmet
I had the N43 for three years before this helmet. I feel this is an improvement and an upgrade. I had to order one size bigger, but iI like it. Good field of vision. It is somewhat loud, but all helmets are basically loud without earplugs or earbuds. I wear Klipsch S4I rugged earbuds most of the time anyway. I like the way it looks and feels. A lot more air flow than the N43. I like the face shield clicks. I think they put them in the right place.

Exactly what I wanted - a true modular helmet
I owned the N43 prior and loved it. This helmet has some needed changes. The fit has changed as the helmet is now oval shaped - but I'm still wearing the same size and it very comfortable and I believe there's less wind noise and my wife says less wind comes up through the neck area into the helmet
My wife also got the N44 tech and uses the face shield which now has a partial opening to help with fogging - we have not installed the fog shields. The mechanism to change up the face shield / peak visor is simple but big fingers make it a touch awkward - now there's no chance of losing parts and it's extremely simple and fast. The sun visor mechanism also takes a bit to get use to as it's in a different position but works wonderfully. I install of the N-Com system in a breeze. The finish is great - however my wife says there's too many 'Nolan' emblems on the helmet - I believe another model has addressed this issue.

Great helmet for the money but don't buy the N-Com system to go with it if you want to listed to music
Great helmet especially with the modular feature. Really comfortable etc. Too bad Nolan pairs with the N-Com as it sucks for a bluetooth. Only works for calls, nothing else like music etc. Big investment in time to install the N-Com and try to fix only to have it not work. I bought a Moto bluetooth earpiece from Best Buy to replace the N-Com system and it works great even without the mouthpiece for voice it recognizes voice commands etc and plays my Spotify music.

Solid value but a bit loud
My head is intermediate oval and have trouble finding a solid helmet. The Shark evoline 3 is too round and squeezed the front of my 7 5/8" noggin. The Vega phantom was too tight even @ 2XL. The Vega Summit 3.0 is comfortable but noisy and visibility downward was limited by the breathbox. But I really liked the Shark's innovative movable chin bar system so I tried the phantom, returned the XL and 2XL and got the N44. While there are others w removable chins, the N44 uses metal connectors so earned safety rating. Oddly though, removing the chin does not increase air flow cause of the length of the face shield. But the intakes in the crown make up for it. The helmet seals very well when the shield is closed, so well that the sound of air rushing by reverberates inside with a boomy sound that is louder than the Summit or Shark. The ratchet strap is innovative but feels rough and chokes me a bit - my biggest complaint comfort-wise. The color scheme matches my Can-AM Spyder's circuit yellow metallic nicely which is a plus. Also, unlike Anthony's comment, you can mount an aftermarket BT unit. My Sena 5 mounts securely using their stickly-taped mount.

The only helmet that comes in the full face and 3/4 helmet styles that is 3xl. This one may not fit even at 3xl, it is extremely difficult to find helmets this size and larger that have these kind of helmet options.

No such thing as the perfect helmet (is that why we riders are nuts about buying and collecting them?!) I really do love this helmet. Honestly its either this one or the Shuberth C3 that I use daily. If this helmet had the VISABILITY and quietness of the Shuberth, Id wear it always.

Hi,

I have a vespa GT 200 (2007).

Do you know if the Nolan N44 helmet fit under the seat storage of the vespa ?

Thanks for your help,

Regards,

Glen
A shopper on Aug 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, I don't know about the size of the undersea to storage in a Vespa.

I really do like the helmet very much in general. The field of vision is much better then on a typical modular helmet. My only complaint is that it is a bit more noisy than most but that is easily taken care of with ear plugs.
Why no reviews on the Nolan N44 Storm?
Matt C on Dec 7, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Ask and you shall receive.
I wrote a review this morning and per Revzilla email confirmation it is posted to the website but I don't see it. Guess they didn't like the negative review.
In short, this helmet has great visibility. Venting is a little above avg. It squeaks, rattles and sucks at speeds above 45. If your looking for a local road helmet this a good choice. If your looking for a highway helmet, save your money and look elsewhere. Everything about this helmet had been the typical marketing ploys to increase sales. profit, profit, profit.
It falls short of all the hype!
Hi, looking for a modular helmet to use while long distance riding, highway, that does NOT let water in around shield.
Love my Shark Evoline 3 in every way apart from when it rains hard ( I live in the Pacific North Wet ) water is coming in everywhere... Riding a Roadglide with Madstad windshield lowers etc....
Considering Nolan N-104 , N-90 ,? Shuberth a bit high end for me....
A shopper on Jan 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I bought this helmet to use in Auckland in the winter which averages 60mm of rain or so per winter month.

Then I moved back to Vancouver which has about 120mm of rain by the time I bench it.

I've never had it leak. I had an Evoline as well. I prefer the way this one sits on my head. It doesn't transfer the weight to the back. I do believe it is lighter as well.
What does it mean "2 shell sizes"?
A shopper on Apr 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It means that there are 2 sizes for the outer shell of the helmet. For example: XS, SM, and MD may share the same size shell with the thickness of the cheek pads determining the fit to you your head. In this example all sizes above MD would share the second shell.
