 Nolan N104 Action Helmet
Nolan N104 Action Helmet
Nolan N104 Action Helmet Nolan N104 Helmets represent an evolutionary step for Nolan as they replace the much touted N103 Helmet. When compared the older N103, the Nolan N104 Helmet offers a helmet which is much lighter (7oz), features a lower profile through the use of multiple shell sizes, better aerodynamics, as well as a much larger viewport for increased visibility. The (patented) chin guard rotation movement with elliptical trajectory makes it possible to keep the total size of the helmet's front section to a minimum, when the chin guard is open. The sail effect is consequently highly reduced and riding comfort is still guaranteed, even when the chin guard is lifted. The new ultrawide eyeport is the largest of any Nolan helmet, both vertically and laterally for maximum field of view. The AIRBOOSTER ventilation system is equipped with an air intake in the chin bar, another intake in the brow and two rear extractors at the rear. The inner comfort lining includes removable cheekpads, inner liner, neckroll and chin curtain and is easily removable and washable as well as antifungal and antibacterial. New, redesigned comfort liner also accommodates eyeglasses much more easily than before. All Nolan N104 helmets are also N-COM B4 ready ( N-COM B4 is designed expressly for the N104 and is sold separately). Shell Features Injected polycarbonate GE Lexan shell 7oz lighter than the Nolan N103 Two Shell engineering allows Nolan N104 to offer sizes from 2XS to 3XL (2XS-LG and XL-3XL) Dimensionally correct sizing allows ample cubic volume in chin/nose area Faceshield Features Face shields are now sized to fit the two different shell sizes (2XS-LG and XL-3XL) Ultra wide eye port opening is the largest on any Nolan helmet for superior visibility Shield is changed by a simple push button mechanism Pinlock shield included with each helmet VPS (Vision Protection System) is new slider bar to lower, push button release for instant retraction VPS lens is scratch and fog resistant Chin Bar Features Centromatic chin guard opening mechanism requires dual action, simultaneous action to prevent accidental opening Dual action opening mechanism is positioned in the centre of the chin guard and allows for easy, one-handed opening Ventilation N104 has new AIRBOOSTER ventilation system, ensures optimal ventilation where is is most required Air intake in the chin guard draws air in and onto the inside of the faceshield 3 position top vent (closed, crown vent, crown/brow vent) 2 venturi exhaust ports at rear of helmet New plastic vent tube channels in EPS disperse cool air throughout the helmet interior Inner Liner Features removable cheek pads, inner liner, neck roll and wind protector The inner padding of the new N104 is easily removable and washable and antibacterial The shape of the inner comfort padding facilitates eyeglass wearing Reflective insert at the centre of the roll neck further improves the rider's visibility at night Neck roll can be removed easily, for more comfort in the warmer months Other Features N-Com Communication System compatible (sold separately) Features new Microlock2 quick-release retention system Microlock2 consists of a plastic ergonomic opening lever, and of a second aluminium toothed and holding lever Microlock2 minimizes the possibility of unintentional opening while still making it ergonomic and easy to use Meets or exceeds D.O.T. standards

I´m a fan from Nolan. I have used the N103 full face and N43 modular.
This helmet is very stylish I loved it since I saw it, the range of vision is exceptional, i prefer the modular helmets because of their versatility, and this helmet work great, the spring returned button for the sun visor is very useful and the visor works great, they did improved the visor from the old versions. Compared with the other two helmets this one is a little bit more heavy but still light for all the mechanisms it has.
Another great thing about this helmet is the air flow, its way better than the other two models, even at low speed.
It is also very comfortable, the cheek pads are a little bit wider than the other models but you get used to it.

Puma Testastretta II Mid Boots The PUMA Testastretta II Mid boot mixes the essence of PUMA and moto performance into a street-ready style. The Testastretta II Mid takes performance elements from MotoGP, using the looks of the vamp shiftguard, slider, heel counter and separate aluminum heel to bring authenticity to this moto sneaker. It also has a synthetic upper, injected EVA midsole for cushioning and an oil-resistant, non-slip rubber sole. Whether you're on a bike or on foot, this shoe is all about the motorsport lifestyle.

This is a very nice summer shoe for riding/everyday use from puma, it is very stilish, I was surprised on the comfort (though it could be stiffer because of the protection) and matches with my style. If you are looking for a shoe with great protection don't buy this shoe, this is ment for everyday use / riding, the extra protection is acceptable, not ment for track days or very cold weather.
