RiDE review: Nolan N87

Published: 12 October 2016

The N87 is quiet at low speed but gets a little noisier above 100mph. The field of vision is good and the seam of the Pinlock never obstructs the view.

The multi-adjustable sun visor, operated by a lever on the side of the helmet, covers a good area and is suitably dark. Vents are easy to use and effective. The lining is plush.

The N87 is too new to have been SHARP tested yet, but the N86 it replaces was a four-star helmet.
