Nolan N104 Evo

I just purchased what turned out to be a 2015 model of this helmet.I've been using a Nolan N90 for the past few years which I purchased from a forum member. I just replaced it after doing quite a bit of research. My primary criteria were of course comfort and fit, improved ventilation, quieter, lighter, comfortable with glasses (and, able to put on and take off without removing glasses), have a factory ratchet style strap, Pinlock system (preferably, with the Pinlock insert included in the price) and, structured so I could install my Senna communications unit to it, all in the $200 to $300 price range. I ended up with a Nolan N104 Evo. It fit every criteria I set although, I did have to make a slight modification to the plastic trim around the bottom of the helmet (cut a slot) in order to fit the Senna. I had had to do essentially the same thing to the N90. The Senna fits slightly back further from where it did on my N90 due to the change in location for the sun visor actuator but still, it is comfortable to use. It put the microphone slightly off center to my mouth but, it works fine. One thing I had to figure out was the glasses issue. Out of the box it was okay but, a little tight on the glasses. This helmet is a floor model and didn't come with the manual. I contacted Nolan and was given a link for a downloadable manual however, it seems to be from a variant of the model I have (perhaps, a different year), as their instructions on how to remove some cheek padding to better accommodate glasses didn't coincide with the helmet's construction. However, I found square cutouts on the plastic "frame" of the cheek pad, through which I could pull some of the padding without fully removing it. This produced additional room for improved glasses comfort. I am very happy with this purchase.

Better to have scooted and got lost, than to never have scooted at all.
