Nolan N90S Helmet (XS Only)
Wonderful except for the noise level
The helmet has good features and fits pretty well, but I am not happy with the noise level. Probably all modular helmets are like that, but the wind is very loud (I cannot hear my 600cc bike at all at higher speed). Also the sun visor got some very bad scratches after the first couple of uses... I guess it gets scratched inside the helmet every time you use it. Another problem I had with the helmet is that the two main screws holding the lower module constantly get loose. The first time I noticed that they were almost completely unscrewed. So far I had to tighten them three times.
I use this helmet very frequently to commute to work and if you would only use it once every week or two then you might like it.

Great Modular Helmet
I purchased this helmet from Revzilla and it has been great. I have never had a modular helmet before but now I can never go back. It is so easy to get on and off without removing my glasses. The other couple of things that rock are the Nolan ez buckle and the internal sun screen that really makes this helmet a pleasure to wear.

Fit is perfect, air flow is good. Quality workmanship. Great helmet.

The Nolan N90 helmet comes at an amazing price point, it is very well built, made in Italy and fits true to size. I believe it has a round oval shape so it may not fit all head shapes. I have several friends that use this helmet and all of them were impressed by how quiet it is compared with other, more expensive helmet brands they used in the past. The internal visor does not distort at all, the eye port is very wide. The chin guard is very flimsy, it pops out of its place every time I take the helmet off, they could improve on that one a bit. It was not easy to install a Sena communicator, the shape of the helmet bottom edge is such that the mounting hardware is forced out when the screws are tighten. I bet that Nolan's own communication devices fit well though. The weight is also not great when compared with carbon fiber helmets, but it is not heavier than other modular helmets currently available. Overall, a very well built helmet, a bargain for the price, especially when on sale.

Good buy for the Money
It was a bit snug getting it on but I like the fit of the helmet. This is my second Nolan and I buy for the integrated communications and quality. I wish they weren't so noisy, that really cuts down on hearing the GPS. Noise level is the only negative about them.

Best Helmet Yet
I'm not one to buy a super expensive helmet. I've never owned one so I'm sure they're maybe worth the money in style and comfort. This is probably the most I put into a helmet and its the best I've had. Noise level is great. I can hear my music and calls. Fits my head better. The optional defogger insert is probably the best feature. Love this helmet... Buy it

the helmet fits comfortable and the pin lock system is awesome, as with a lot of modular helmets it is heavy so bikes that have an aggressive riding posture, you will tend to feel the weight

Good quality at inexpensive cost.
Normally to get the features this helmet has, you would have to spend a lot more money. I have only used this helmet in the colder months so far (down to -7C°) & I would not have been able to do that with my old helmet due to the fact that I would not have been able to see because of a foggy shield.
The double fog shield in this helmet proved to be an asset when it comes to cooler riding. I hope it is not too hot in the summer.
