NEW NOLAN OPEN-FACE LIDS

Behold the new Nolan open-faces.

N21 LARIO SRATCHED CHROME - 10CM 300DPI

This is the Lario scratched-chrome jobbie.

Sure, you might wear them on your scooter and that’s fine, but I will be wearing them on motorcycles and looking impossibly finer. Well, I will if Ron Angel sends me one.

If you didn’t know, Nolan is made in Italy, and is considered by those who know these things, as a premier helmet-brand. I am one of those who knows about open-face helmets. It’s pretty much all I wear, and I have worn all the brands. I have not worn one of these, but I want to. Why?

N21 VISOR FLAT BLACK - 10CM 300DPI

The plain black one – yes, visors can be fitted to all of them.

This is why:

They come with a five-year warranty.

They have multi-Density EPS styrene liners, which provide optimum shock absorptionforce disbursement.

The liner is made from heroic microfibre material with anti-bacterial treatment for a longer-lasting fit and to prevent bacteria eating your head.

The visor is made from scratch-resistant Lexan, and the ‘Fighter Pilot’ goggle-style VPS visor retracts into the shell – and comes in tints if you want.

The neck-section provides a better fit and is meant to offer better anti-roll resistance in a crash and makes the lid quieter and better-fitting.

Enhanced neck roll provides a more enclosed fit for better anti-roll resistance in crash situations, and a quieter, more comfortable fit.

By all accounts, it appears to be a top-shelf bit of kit.

HOW MUCH?

Prices range from $199 for the plain black one, $239 for the Caribe colour-schemed ones, or $309 for the hella sexy scratched-chrome painted one.

WHERE CAN I BUY ONE FROM?

Contact Ron Angel HERE and ask for your nearest distributor.
