Nolan has a great urban style open face helmet in the N20 but what they didn’t have in their lineup was a more touring oriented open face helmet. Enter the N40. Featuring a small aerodynamic visor (which can be removed if desired), a drop down sun shield and space for N-Com communication, the N40 is a surprisingly comfortable place to be on long rides. A small amount of adjustability has been built into the cheek pads to let you customize the fit and with the generously sized face shield, your face will stay insulated from the elements. And while venting may seem redundant on an open face helmet, Nolan has nevertheless equipped the N40 with intake and exhaust vents for excellent airflow.
Like a protective apparition, the Variant Ghost Carbon is the barely there presence made to haunt the minds of the unwary. Showing hand laid carbon along with gold tinted eyes, the Variant becomes a cold blooded attack on the road. Capable of anything and showing nothing, the Ghost Carbon is street performance dripped in black.
Slotting in to replace the N90 as Nolan’s value priced modular helmet, the new N91 features a couple key improvements but thankfully hasn’t increased its price over its predecessor. Besides the more modern and angular shell design, the real big difference to the N90 is the overhauled ventilation system. A more simplified system, the N91 now features one large chin vent, one large forehead vent and a prominent Venturi vent on the back. Both the easy to use drop down sun shield and flip up chin bar remain and combined with the more intermediate oval fit, the N91 should appeal to an even wider range of touring riders.
Lightness, cooling and safety are the pillars of an off-road helmet and since this is based on one, the AGV AX-8 DS EVO already comes to the table with the features that street helmets often neglect. And yet, because the AX-8 DS EVO is a dual sport helmet, AGV has gone ahead and ensured that the comfort and aerodynamics are up to par for all day road going excursions. Whether the need is vision, air or just comfort, this hybrid takes in all riding conditions with confidence.
Arai doesn’t come out with brand new helmets that often, so when they do you know it’s special. The Corsair-X breaks ground on a couple new designs and chief among them is a new, rounder shell that has been specifically shaped to increase the chance you glance off an impact and not just take the hit directly. Improving energy absorption, this added safety doesn’t increase weight or drag and still performs just like you’d expect any Arai would. Ventilation is quite impressive and each of the six large vents are three position adjustable ensuring you can always dial-in the airflow. The Variable Axis Shield System allows the face shield to be positioned lower on the shell and besides creating a smooth action, the locking latch is low, large and within easy reach. A clear Pinlock insert is standard and just to help that much more in poor conditions, the shield has two adjustable air vents itself. Summed up, the Corsair-X is a helmet that will carry Arai for years to come.
