Nolan N85 Helmet - Solid Colors The N85 is the new full-face street helmet by Nolan fairly small, with a bold, sporty design. The result of accurate volumetric tests, this helmet is equipped with a perfectly integrated sunscreen (VPS) inside the shell. The quick-change/tool-free visor mechanism operates only with the visor in the open position avoiding accidental opening while riding. Features Lightweight aerodynamic polycarbonate shell with built-in spoiler Nolan's VPS (Vision Protection System) actuates internal sun shield Fully removable, washable Clima-Comfort Interior, treated to be anti-fungal and anti-microbial Removable cheek pads Removable chin curtain Dual top vents with exhaust in rear spoiler Chin vents direct air to face shield to help prevent fogging Optically correct, push button quick change shield offers UV400 protection Included Pinlock-ready face shield with clear Pinlock insert Nolan micro lock retention system Meets or exceeds DOT standards

I purchased this helmet based on the Web Bike World reviews and the video visit to the Nolan factory. My head is more round and a large fits well. The helmet is quiet, however relatively speaking so is my bike. The finish is superb. Make sure you clean the VPS with a professional cleaner as it comes with a film which I suspect is from the foam where it resides when up.
Felt light on my head compared to early models I had worn in the past (non Nolan). Florida humidity and heat make it difficult to assess as I was dripping after a half hour. Had difficulty with the chin curtain and did not ever get in properly.
Overall, this is an outstanding product and considering the price, you can't go wrong
Yes, I recommend this product.
