I purchased the new Nolan N103 helmet for cold weather, (spring and fall) riding and have had it for a week now so I thought I would share my experience.
First here is the professional review:
Now they did say how heavy it was, what they didn't state is that your neck size will increase from a 16" to a 22" after 1 week of riding! Yes that's exaggeration, but my neck feels like it been pumping weights
On the first ride, I was feeling neck pain after 20 minutes, each subsequent ride has been better, but just walking around the bike looking down, I really feel the extra weight of the helmet pulling on the back of my neck. I've worn nothing but 1/2 or 3/4 helmets for the past 22 yrs, so probably I'm just not accustomed to the extra weight
The helmet is quiet, but I'm behind a full fairing bike (Vision). The fit and finish is great and the pop down sun shield works more smoothly than the one on my wife's Schuberth C1. The lining is very comfortable, but I need to purchase the thinner cheek pads which are available. I do have a problem with the front snaps of the cheek pads always popping open when I don or remove the helmet. I've emailed Nolan about it, but they haven't replied as yet.
I don't feel much air with both vents open, this probably has to do with the full fairing, but this is a cold weather helmet, I'll be going back to a shorty or 3/4 for the summer.
The Pin anti fog shield works as advertised, I wish I could say the same for my eyeglasses. Speaking of which slide into the helmet onto my ears without problem, these are thick armed plastic frame eyeglass
I'm holding back buying the Nolan Com system, ( I did have the Scala Rider Q2, but sent it back as it didn't fit this helmet or the Arai Classic or the Schuberth C1), I'm thinking of buying the new Nolan N43 for both the wife and buying the N-com system for them instead. I wasn't aware of the N43 until after I purchased the N103. I think the N43 being a 6 way helmet is a better way to go.
