New Features New Chinbar is extended for extra room and now can accept included chin curtain New Face shield now has intermediate open position, previous version was either opened or closed New locking pivot kit 6-in-1 design The New Nolan N43E Trilogy Helmet is a crossover design with quick-change accessories that allows for customized looks and functions for every ride.

It provides real eye protection and is also available in amber, light blue and light smoke as an accessory. The VPS is easily operated by a large rubber coated slider on the left side of the helmet.

Outlaw versions of Nolan Helmets have a sleeker look with more subtle Nolan logos.

I bought this helmet because full face helmets are claustrophobic and relatively difficult to see out of. I've been riding with a 3/4 helmet for years and wanted to improve the level of protection against chin impact in the event of a crash.
This helmet is much quieter than my previous 3/4 helmet. The face shield is more aerodynamic and less prone to buffeting. When cracked to the first position to let in a little air, it's optically correct and you can actually see through the face shield. The chin bar is almost unnoticeable. There is no sense of restricted vision whatsoever with the chin bar in place. The helmet is a little more prone to fogging with the chin bar in place, but the helmet is very usable with the face shield cracked to vent.
It's lighter than my previous helmet. The chinbar is easy to remove and replace.
In summary this helmet is perfect for my needs. I can use it with the chin bar in place to commute and remove it for more casual riding. I recommend it without reservation.
In terms of fit I went one size up from the sizing chart. It recommended a large and I went with an extra large and it fits perfectly. It is not at all loose, yet is snug enough to ride on the highway with no movement. The fit is very similar to the Scorpion I had before.
Yes, I recommend this product.
