    Hi Marko

    Which one is it?  Open face, full face, or flip face?  We're big fans of Nolan helmets here at Ace.

    Cheers

    Steve

    Hi All

             Steve it's the full face helmet with the full clear visor and the half tinted visor over that, the half tinted visor flips independantly and is the model n84 i looked at a few others but the twin visor setup was just so handy that i settled on it - and the Casey Stoner Coolreplica was twice as much and no twin visor setupCrying.

        I am going to Darwin which is   100 km one way today for the toy runCoolBig Smile so it will get a workout and I will see what happens.Smile

        Was hoping to have a nice black scooter that hasn't been seen in Darwin yet to ride to show all the Darwinites but apparently it needed new shock absorbers and they only arrived yesterday.   Oh well maybe one dayBig Smile

        The only thing I hated which i almost forgot was the nose piece on the helmet which is removeable and was straight away

     Nice one!  Yeah - the tinted half visor is a real bonus.  I know that they are looking at getting one with an internal tinted visor (behind the main visor) through compliance - but its proving to take longer than I think they'd originally hoped.

    I almost bought the Stoner Replica.  But in the end I was not 100% comfortable with the feel of the Nolan on me!

     It depends on the shape of your head.  You have either got a oval head, or a square head.  We all know what shape yours in Dakoda, ja?

    Ha!

    I think also male and female there is differences, hair styles etc, all affect it.  For me personally the Nolans didn't do it for me in the fitting stakes, and I think this is a very important factor.  Just goes to show you have to try everything on!

    Daks - you are right.  Fit is vital.  When it comes to safety, its the most important factor.  You are better off with a cheap well-fitted helmet than the most expensive poor-fitting one.

     i am also a fan of the nolan range of helmets. i have an open face, tilt up and full face. a couple with the flip up dark half visor. i found them very noisy when up and were not dark enough for me. so i have taken them off.  but the comfort is great. enjoy.

    Hi All

             Silverflyer I have tested mine over six hundred km's now and i find it good the whistle with the dark visor all the way up at almost any speed is annoying but if i put it down a click it doesnt really affect my vision and the whistle only happens when i tilt my head back past verticalBig Smile .  Its also good in the rain as i didn't get wet and it didnt fog up either.

       Down side is it doesn't make coffee and the good looking bikini clad  visor cleaner hasn't arrived yet DevilWink , how long did it take for yours to turn up Silveflyer ?
