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

High Quality and Fast Shipping First, great job revzilla. I ordered on a Monday morning and it was delivered on a Tuesday morning, using the regular free shipping. I guess this is because I'm in PA and it was shipped from Philly, but nonetheless, impressive. I was deciding between an HJC IS-17 and the Nolan and couldn't find anywhere to try on the Nolan around here. But after reading reviews, I decided to try the Nolan. Very impressed with the feel, fit and quality of the helmet. My two previous helmets have been HJC: CL-15 and Sy-Max 2. Nothing bad about them - they were inexpensive. I no longer wear glasses, so I decided to go back to full-face and have a bit of a sturdier helmet. Love the internal sunshade feature so I wanted that. The N86 fits me very well. Both shields work great. Noise seems pretty average - need to put on some more miles to know for sure. View out is great. Love the micro-lock chin strap instead of the D ring. Helmet makes me feel that it would protect me well in a crash. July 16, 2014
Decent product for the money This helmet is extremely loud with the top vents open, particularly when you turn your head to one side. It sounds like a jet is flying directly over you. The helmet is comfortable enough; however, it seems to fit a bit tighter in the jaw area. The rest of the helmet fits a bit loose. June 30, 2014
comfortable, good-looking helmet for the money comfortable, pretty light. size is a bit small. I had to size up compared to HJC and AFX. flip-down visor doesn't come down far enough for me, though. But, I prefer glasses anyway. Overall, love it. June 23, 2014
Great Helmet, with a few caveats I am impressed with this helmet. Looks great, fits great. Venting could be a bit better, but it's sufficient. Field of vision is fine peripherally, but a bit narrow vertically (ie: down to gauges). The built in sun visor is an awesome idea, but is definitely positioned for a sportbike riding position. When I ride my Bonneville, it has an odd distortion when I'm completely upright. But if I tilt my head down a few degrees, it's great. Fit and finish is up there with much more expensive helmets I've had in the past. Also fits great with glasses. June 23, 2014
Ideal first helmet. I enjoy the room for expansion that this helmet offers, with an additional fog resistant lens and the expansion bay for the N-Com unit. It is protective enough to keep you safe from nasty spills, but not prohibitively expensive to keep from being affordable for entry level riders. Would enthusiastically recommend! June 10, 2014
Tremendous Value! Overall: Buy immediately. You won't beat the quality. This helmet has crazy value. At its price you will receive features helmets twice its cost lack. Pros: *"Microlock" (zip-lock style) chin straps make putting on helmet on even easy with gloves. (best feature) *The interior padding has amazing quality *The pinlock is a great added value. No fogging whatsoever. Stylish *Great ventilation, especially like the stiff visor adjustments that allow for the visor to be cracker without moving around at high speeds Cons: *The internal sun visor should come down further and have a a single bottom line. It causes confusing vision when the top half of your vision is shaded and the bottom half is bright. Size: Possibly a bit small. If you are on the upper limits of a size on the size chart consider sizing up. I was a medium in AGV K3 which fits better but somehow the Nolan is still more comfortable due to the quality of the liner and ear room. May 26, 2014
Fits all my needs at the right price. I got this helmet after looking at a few other similar options. I can honestly say that I am happy with my decision. I went with the flat black model and it looks really nice. I love all the little features that take it from a good helmet to a great helmet for the price range. The quick ratchet chin strap is a must have, the anti fog lens works very well, and the slide down visor is the main reason I grabbed this helmet. I wear glasses while riding and it is a pain to need prescription sunglasses, or have a tinted visor that becomes too dark at night. The slide down visor lets me wear my normal (larger eye glasses :Oakley muffler) and have the sun protection when needed. This helmet is even set up to be ready to take Nolan communication devices. With all these features in a comfortable well built helmet for the price point it is at, I give this product a huge thumbs up! May 22, 2014
I love this lid!!! This helmet is mucho comfortable! Pin lock is a must and it has it! I love the fit May 14, 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

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.

Gregory B asked: I am wondering how this helmet fits (internal shape) compared to the N85. Can anyone make a comparison of this helmet to the AGV AX8 or the AGV Skyline? I definitely have an oval shaped head. Thanks Oct 13, 2013

A shopper asked: Does the N86 have the chin "curtain" that helps keep wind off your neck? Apr 9, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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
