Nolan Has A New Modular Helmet For Entry-Level Riding

Nolan N90-3

Nolan’s New Entry-Level Modular Helmet

Modular helmets have come far. What started as an expensive lid with “new tech” being featured (and a high price tag to support this new style of lid) has now become a standard option when it comes to riders selecting their first motorcycle helmet. If you’re a new (or old) rider seeking a great modular helmet option with entry-level pricing, Nolan’s new N90-3 Modular helmet is here to stay.

Although Nolan is a smaller name when facing the industry’s titans – such as Shoei, Bell, and Arai – they still have cemented themselves as a strong contender, especially with this new helmet. The N90-3 is packed full of all of the options you would expect from a high-end modular helmet at a fraction of a price.

Beyond the fact that the entire chin bar of this helmet lifts up like a traditional modular, Nolan has ensured you won’t be thirsty for extra features. This helmet comes complete with a scratch and fog-resistant drop-down sun visor that is removable for ease-of-cleaning, a healthy amount of airflow thanks to Nolan’s “AirBooster technology” (quite the name for some simple vents), and it’s even ready to accept Nolan’s N-Com communication system along with their Emergency Stop Signal add-on.

On the safety side, this helmet is constructed with a polycarbonate shell, boasts an anti-fog and removable pin lock-ready visor, toothed and lockable chinstrap that keeps the helmet from making its way loose, and a double-action mechanism that prevents the modular section from unintendedly making its way to the open position. 

This helmet comes into the entry-level market with a $299.95 price tag for solid colors, and if you’re looking for some fancy graphics expect to shell out an extra $50 for bonus swagger when matching your gear to your bike.

    Are these helmets for entry level crashes, too?

      Low side slideout only.

    Can you mount Sena or Cardo coms? Word is Nolan comms are not up to par!

      We’ll have to find out when we get our hands on one. I know on the N100-5 it would be very challenging to install anything other than the Nolan N-Comm units.

    after many years with a Nolan n-90, I switched to Schubert basic. Bad mistake for me. If this helmet is anything as good as the old n-90 it is a winner. The only advantage I found in the Schubert was lighter weight.
