Nolan Super Cruise Helmet
Not inexpensive but well made
The fit was perfect...got the large which is my usual helmet size so it was true to fit. Very comfortable. Love the strap clasp. Easy on/off. The loose strap pad falls off and you could do without it (which I'll likely have to since I'll probably lose it over time) but I like the comfort the pad provides.
I usually buy the cheaper (sub $100) half helmets but I splurged on this one and I'm not disappointed...

Helmet fit is confortable but.
The Nolan Super Cruz helmet is true to size and fits your head very comfortably. However it is a round helmet that looks a little odd when wearing it. The quick connect chin strap buckle is a very good idea but I find that it rides on your throat area and can be uncomfortable at times. I think that if the buckle was offset to one side or the other it would be a very good addition. Overall this is a quality made helmet that is solid and well constructed.

very pleased with this helmet
decided to purchase a top of the line half-helmet. Friend suggested looking at Nolan. Liked the features, used their sizing chart and ordered a large. Fits amazingly well. My only complaint is it has some turbulence when traveling over 50 or so. However, to be expected with the shape of the visor : haven't taken it off yet to try it without it.

Just had my first ride today - Love it!!
I bought this helmet a couple months ago, but the winter in Alberta just didn't wanna go away, but today was warm enough to go out for a cruise! I got to test out my new Nolan Super Cruise...my first half helmet. Very nice!
I had worn it a few times in the house since I got it to get used to the fit...it was very tight at first but 10 or 15 minutes later it seemed to fit around my head and was getting more comfortable by the minute.
Today during my ride, I really enjoyed this helmet. It was windy today, so there was a bit of lifting but overall, it feels really good, even at 70+ mph. There is a bit of whistling at highway speed which, depending on wind direction or other factors, can vary in volume and annoyance levels. I actually bought 2 helmets (Nolan N104 modular as well) and this Super Cruise will be more for my city cruises, where I'll be doing a limited amount of highway speeds. I'll use my full face for the open, far travels.
Overall, this is a great helmet and was a great price from revzilla. Shipping to Canada was super quick, the packaging was great.
Oh, one more thing, this helmet has the Microlock chin strap system and I must say, this is far better than D rings. I doubt I'll ever go back to a D ring helmet again after using the super quick Micrlock strap!

Higher end DOT half helmet
Be advised: Helmet is standard fair as far as Dot half helmet in terms of shape and size it's big and round. Fit is very comfortable, quick lock chin strap is awesome feature, shows attention to detail. Visor shows no thought at all fits helmet loose and vibrates annoyingly in air flow I removed it . removable liner is nice feature, and comfortable.Helmet was direct shipped from Nolan and took several extra days to arrive

Better than my old helmet
The short but sweet:
This helmet is every bit as light as my old "world's lightest DOT" ____ helmet, but fits much better and is much more comfortable. The fit is definitely true to size. The quick-release latch system is also much better than ____'s system. I can unlatch this helmet with one hand and pull it off with the other. It's adjustment is very precise; probably fit just about any chin.
The zip-out neck gator and removable chin pad make this an excellent choice for those of us who hate helmets but have to wear one. It's a but spendy, but worth it in my opinion.
I can't give five stars to "protection and durability" because I haven't owned it that long nor have I smacked it against the pavement.
One negative ding: The snap-on visor appears to be functionally useless. It's too high and short to do any good at all. Snap it on only if you like the way it makes the helmet look.
