Nolan N104 Voyage 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

While there's really nothing wrong with this helmet, it feels a tad smaller than normal, at least in the Large size. The features and styling are fine, and it is fairly quiet. The shape of the padding seems to but extra pressure on my cheeks, and the chin strap is far enough back to rub on my neck, which does get annoying.
I would recommend trying this on before buying it. If it fits you well, then it's a great helmet.

Not everyone who rides a motorcycle wants skulls and flames on their helmet, this is a nice compromise. Also, compared to other modular helmets I've worn, on the same bike, this one handles wind turbulence far better. I don't feel my head being pushed around ever. The airflow is good, but comes at the cost of noise, particularly if you have a small windscreen, but that could just be related to my height (tall)

It's always hard to rate something that's supposed to protect you without actually crashing in it, but this seems up to the task so far. The back protector looks to be very durable, and for some reason, is removable. The rest of the padding seems well placed.

Overall this is the best helmet I've had. The sun visor is nice, and it includes an anti-fog piece you can put on. Only downside is if you use earbuds while riding, there isn't much extra room near your ear, so it will take some breaking in to be comfortable for that.

If you want a jacket for every season, this seems to be the one to get. The included camleback is too small for any long trips, but is a nice idea. Otherwise, it seems they thought of everything, especially pockets....lots of pockets....

It's nice to have a jacket I can wear when it's 110* outside and not die of dehydration within minutes. Granted, sitting at a stoplight sucks, but keeping the sun off, and the hot air from directly touching my skin feels cooler than no jacket. It fits great, breathes plenty, looks as good as a motorcyle jacket can, and has enough protection to make me feel safe.

The amount of air flow is good, but these seem to be a little smaller for the size (or possibly this is intentional to help prevent them making your hands warmer....), which cause the seams to press hard enough againts the skin to cause lines after a while. This is minor though, everything else is great.
