Nolan N91 Revenge Helmet
Great helmet for the money
The helmet is slightly heavier and a bit noisier than I would like, but for that price you can't go wrong. I actually received the EVO version of this helmet, which has an upgraded liner. The build quality and paint are superb and are on par with other premium helmets. My favorite feature of this helmet is the drop down sun visor which fits over my prescription glasses perfectly.

Very comfortable & full featured helmet
I bought this helmet based on the reviews, video, and relative price. I received the helmet in a few days, and it fit perfectly based on the sizing guide. I really like the features, such as venting, sun shade, and chin curtain. I bought it in flat black and really like the look!

Excellent helmet for the price
The N91 is a feature rich, well made helmet. Fit and finish are excellent and a price point that's hard to beat, considering the quality.
The flip up works well, clicking nicely in place. The ability to lock the helmet in the open position is a nice touch.
The sun visor works well. It's slightly shaped, around the nose, but not too much. Best would be not at all, so I could lower the visor to any position to only cover the top of the view, but it's not too bad. The visor itself is quite light in color, so sunglasses should be worn in full sunlight. The visor is useful in lower light conditions, or as an extra block of the sun itself in addition to sunglasses. It works well.
Noise levels are medium.
My only gripe is the missing ear pockets. The helmet liner, which is nice and comfortable, sits directly on the ears without pockets surrounding the ears. If you prefer ear pockets, this will bother you.

Great helmet with nice features, good cost.
This helmet is a big step up in comfort and features from my plain jane cheap helmet I've been using for years. I love the modular design, it makes it much more comfortable to ride in hot weather. It is basically a necessity to have the chin bar up to put the helmet on as it fits very tight. It fits on the tight side overall; I sometimes get the pads folding over as I put it on because it's so tight, despite my head being just below the measurement range for the large. Once it's on, it doesn't feel too tight and fits very secure, but putting it on can be a little bit painful.
The flip down visor is possibly my favorite feature, though the visor isn't very dark and I often find myself still struggling to see due o the sun even though the visor is down.
The pinlock anti-fog system works perfectly so far, I haven't had any fog whatsoever despite riding in heavy, warm rain.
The hin strap lock is very nice, though it tends to sit a it too much against my throat, and it doesn't have a loop to use with a helmet lock.
The venting is ok. I don't really feel it, but I assume it's doing something. It does get a bit louder when you open them.
The wind skirt on th chin bar is very nice to have, but it is not the best designed attachment. It's a bit hard to pull out, and because the plastic parts on the chin bar aren't toleranced as well as they should be, one side of it falls out alot because it fits in too loosely. It definitely can't survive frequent removal.
Overall I like the helmet, it has alot of features at the price point. I'd probably buy it again if I had to go back as no other helmet in this price range had all of the features this one has.

I like it! But wish it had more...
My first modular helmet, I like it so far. It has a very snug fit, seems like they may run a bit small. Not a deal breaker but worth noting. The review vid didnt mention the removable chin piece that really helps keep the wind and cold out in the winter! When I pull the chin down it seals up good! That small chin flap thingy really makes a difference in the cold. Easy to pull out when it warms up. Does not move around on your head while wearing it. Vents... Wish it had more or bigger vents. Not much air flow through this unit. I have very short hair in the few spots I have any, and I just dont feel much breeze. Lacking in this dept. I have the flat black version. Looks great! Finish is Great. Anti fog pin lock unit seems to work great! Im using this in a dual sport environment, so I tend to get hot and then park for a few or slow down for technical sections, no more fogging. With out the added pin lock lens it was a regular event. Love the micro lock chin strap! Holds solid and is easy to work with one hand. To sum it up... I really like it but wish it had more venting. The drop down visor/sun shield is nice as well!

I originally had the Shark Evoline Series 3. Few things, didn't like the shape on my head, it looked like a space helmet. At any rate, not a few months after I ordered it, the molding began to deteriorate. I was given a full refund, so I purchased the Nolan instead. Immediately I was impressed by the mate black finish, and the liner, no to mention cheaper price. Im a true med, and the helmet is on the small side. The modular functionality is great. Also its a tad bit on the heavy side. The helmet otherwise is great.

I will never purchase another Nolan product.
Cheaply made without a lot of thought put into it.
