Nolan N86 Helmet

The Nolan N86 is the new full-face helmet by Nolan characterized by its sporty, streamlined designed, compact volume, extensive standard equipment and close-fit comfort. The N86 is equipped with an inner sun visor (VPS), Pinlock anti-fog visor with silicone-sealed profile, removable/washable inner comfort padding, Microlock2 (patent pending) double lever retention system. This system consists of a thermoplastic ergonomic opening lever, and a second aluminum toothed and holding lever. The toothed lever releases the micrometric strip, thus the chin strap can only be open with a very broad rotation of the opening lever. This device minimizes the possibility of unintentional opening of the retention system.

Features:

  • Polycarbonate shell
  • VPS (Vision Protection System) short dark shield mounted on the inside of the shell provides real eye protection when used independently from the clear shield
  • Quick-release and multi-position anti-scratch shield accepts Pinlock antifog insert (included)
  • Clear Pinlock faceshield and lens included
  • Adjustable chin and top vents plus air flow rear extraction
  • Removable and washable Clima Comfort interior lining and cheekpads with antibacterial treatment
  • Microlock2 (patent pending) double lever retention system
  • Ready for NCOM Communication System
  • DOT Approved

Nolan N86 Helmet 4.3 5 60 60
Good, not perfect. I've had this helmet for awhile, almost 2 years, and I'm mildly disappointed. Some build quality issues with mine, the interior has some loose threads that can be annoying and I've had to glue the interior snaps back onto the helmet (the female ends) for all the interior, both cheek pads and the brow snaps. Being in a hot, humid climate might have something to do with the original glue of the original plastic female snap ends. (Your results may very.) Besides those things, which have just happened this last week, this is a good helmet, it has all the features I want. Drop down visor and ratcheting chin strap and pre cut out speaker spaces that are sized perfectly and routing for wires for the speakers, the vents are pretty good, being in Texas they are adequate, not the best though. Fit is really good, maybe a bit too round, it's still longer than wider though. The interior is comfortable. August 3, 2015
Excellent Full-Face Helmet at a great price! The Nolan N86 is a great full-face helmet designed and manufactured in Italy. It comes with an integrated sun-visor and Pinlock silicone sealed anti-fog visor insert that is nice on those cold damp mornings to keep the visor from fogging. This helmet is DOT and ECE-22.05 safety rated. The paint quality and overall fit and finish of the helmet, air vents, visors and seals are excellent and has the look and feel of a much more expensive helmet! I have a vary standard shaped (neither narrow nor round) head and the size large fits me perfectly. The outward visibility and peripheral vision is very good as well. The weight of the helmet feels light and very comfortable. The sound levels are good and I can easily hear surrounding traffic. There is a noticeable amount of wind noise at speeds above 50 MPH, but is not overly distracting. The Nolan N86 is prepped for the Nolan N-Com Bluetooth intercom system. This means you can add an N-Com intercom to the helmet by inserting the intercom module into the recess on the left side of the helmet and popping in the mic and speakers into the pre-molded retainers. I personally won't be using this feature, but it is there for people who do like to talk or listen to music while riding. I'm very, very happy with my purchase and feel the combination of quality and features that the Nolan N86 provides is hard to beat even at twice the price! July 16, 2015
Great features and not too expensive The helmet fits nice ! The air flow in could be a little better but its not bad June 15, 2015
Great helmet This helpmate looks amazing and fits well. The drop down visor is easy to move even if you have to reach around your head because you have the clutch pulled in. The ratchet style chin strap works well and is easy to work with when you have gloves on. I only wish that the sun visor was one full curve instead of having a notch cut out of it. Overall a great helmet. July 20, 2015
Good helmet I just rode 3000 miles through desert heat of over 100 F, cold and rainy high elevation in the Rockies and stayed dry, winds and rain of the plains, urban LA and this helmet worked great in all areas. It is a bit narrow, but then I also have a wide head. Once my head is in it, I have no discomfort. I am really pleased with my new helmet. July 9, 2015
Great fit for me, a bit foggy, a little noisy Helmet fits my head well (my #1 priority). Very comfortable. Pinlock-equipped shield is the bomb! In the cool damp Pacific Northwet, fogging is a big issue. The helmet by itself doesn't provide enough ventilation (particularly in commuting traffic) to keep the shield clear, but with the Pinlock liner it's almost never an issue. Shield seals well against the helmet, so unless I have to crack the shield open at stops (see above), I don't get rain drips/dribbles inside. Eye opening seems to fall in the right place for me, no issues with visibility. I like the sun visor, although I wish it extended a bit lower. Doesn't shade my view of the gauges, which might be intentional, but I find the contrast between shaded road view and unshaded gauge view a bit annoying. Still better than no shade when it's needed, and easy to switch on/off when riding through a tunnel, under a cloud, etc. Microlock fastener took a little getting used to, but I'm starting to like it slightly better than D-rings; quicker on/off. Not the quietest helmet I've owned [that would be my old Shark S650], but I always wear earplugs when riding on a highway. I don't notice the weight as being exceptionally heavy nor light. The bottom edge of the helmet is not a flat plane, so beware when setting the helmet down (e.g., on your seat for 'just a moment'), as it is somewhat unstable in that position. Overall a good helmet for a good price, and a great fit for me and my needs. May 25, 2015
its ok nice helmet, but it catches the wind like a kite. Also would be nice if the sun shade went down a little more so I don't get blinded when the sun bounces off my bike. July 1, 2015
Best helmet for the price The only downside to the Nolan helmet is the internal drop down visor. I find that it is not dark enough and the annoying square notched cutout for the nose is distracting. Other than that the helmet is great. Would without hesitation buy this style of lid again. May 4, 2015

Drew M: Internal Sun Visor Apr 28, 2015
Kendra B: Christmas present for my husband. He needs a new helmet and loves his current Nolan helmet. Hopefully he likes the style.

Thanks!
Dec 9, 2014
James W: Had a Nolan N102 for years, was hoping to buy another Nolan as my Cardo System integrates so well with my 102. Unfortunately Nolan has gone in a different direction with their head designs and it fit me.... meh. Created a pressure point that my RPHA10 doesn't have. Disappointed it didn't work as the quality was surprising for the price point. I absolutely would have kept it. Oct 2, 2014
David P: (1) Previous experience with Nolan was positive; this new helmet replaces what is now a very old
N40 / HondaLine unit. (2) In particular, the N86 was selected based on online reviews and limited examination of related
Nolan products (N90) in a local motorcycle accessories store. Primary requirements for me were: conservative styling,
good user reviews, value for the dollar, and useful features.

Frank J: Nolan's reputation and the integrated features like quick release, removable liner, sun visor and easy comm installation. Great for the money! Aug 17, 2014
Joseph W: This helmet had the two main options I wanted: pinlock and an internal sun visor. Jul 27, 2014
Mike K: Fits well, air vents, good protection. Jun 24, 2014
Kelly M: Like the shape and features Jun 4, 2014
Mihai C: Hopefully the drop down visor is dark enough so I don't have to carry extra face shields with me. Apr 24, 2014
Anuranjan P: Got for the wife- cool features, lightweight and brand reputation. The fit was not right so looked at other options. Apr 15, 2014
Ryan M: reviews Apr 6, 2014
J A: I was looking for a good helmet in the 200-250 range. After watching a good amount of reviews on this website it made it easy for me to decide. Videos on this website are what sold me, very visual and good descriptions on almost every helmet I viewed. Apr 2, 2014
Christine T: I am replacing my current helmet, as the eps has, technically, come to the end of its useful life. The reviews on the Revzilla website, and WebBike World website, are positive. Also, the fact that the place of origin can be visited, and confidence in workplace standards is high. Apr 2, 2014
Timothy I: I chose this helmet because it's the successor to WebBikeWorld's helmet of the year, the N85, and this model is more of an American shape, slightly less round, and the ratchet micro lock (For the LOVE OF GOD why can't ALL helmets have this), the internal sun visor, and of course ... The bang for the buck! Can't wait to test it out!!! Mar 19, 2014
Pete M: I chose this based on features. For the price, I simply couldn't find another helmet that had all the bells and whistles this one does. Mar 13, 2014
Colten R: I chose this item because im a new rider and it fit my price range so i can take my MSF course Feb 18, 2014
Arifin H: Bang for the buck helmet. Coming from AGV K3 Feb 15, 2014
Steven P: Good features given the price; trusted brand Nov 14, 2013
Alejandro A: good set of features at a lower price even that the one in Italy. Still dunno why Nov 5, 2013
HENRY H: My first full face and this was rated among the ten best,time will tell Oct 7, 2013
A shopper asked: what are the differences between the n85 and n86? Aug 10, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (6) No (0)
Eduardo M: I have both.
Face shield and internal visor are the same (can use my tinted N85 shield with the N86).
Vents are bigger and look more aggressive, but didn't notice much difference while riding.
Fit, quality and finish seem the same.
N86 interior has a nice red/gray combination.
The new microlock seems sturdier.
N86 is a little lighter.
Both are great helmets, I'm extremely happy with them.

Timothy I: It does have a little chin curtain/screen... And it helps a little, but not a whole lot.

I have to say though... This is the best bang for the buck on any helmet I've every had. ;)

Sam S: Yes, it does, and it works pretty well. The bottom of my chin touches it and occasionally sticks out beneath it, but it's easy to correct with one finger once you feel the cold air. Apr 9, 2014

Dan D asked: Does this helmet have speaker cut outs in the foam? I know it does not include the comm system, I use Sena anyway. But does it have the speaker cutouts in the foam already or do I have to carve my own? Thanks Nov 4, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Dan H: Hi, it has small cut outs I suspect for nolan speakers. I have JM speakers, so I had to enlarge the cut outs. Only drawback on this helmet is that it is a little loud.
thx, Dan
