    Nolan N103

    Does anyone know where I can get a Nolan N103? I need XL in a bright colour - preferably red I can't get access to nolan-usa.com
    I thought I wanted a HJC Sy-Max II. HJC is way behind in their orders. This helmet only comes in black, white and grey.

    AFAIK, it's not available in the US yet and I haven't heard if it ever will be.

    Nolan paid for a full page ad in the latest Roadrunner magazine. I hope that means we will see the helmet SOON!!

    So what's the difference between the N102 and N103? I didn't see anything in the ad that explained the difference.

    Biggest difference, I'm told, is that the sun visor is internal.
    Probably some other improvements/upgrades.

    It may be a misprint but the info at the link above to Competition Accessories says "VPS (Vision Protection System) - short dark shield mounted on the outside of the shell and moving independently from the clear shield with three positions". I have a N102 and an internal shade would be a real improvement.

    Dave, you're right about the printed info, but the photos of the helmet show the VPS to inside the helmet.

    I spoke to a Nolan dealer in the UK and was told that the internal sun screen can be adapted to the N102. Also he said that the N103 flipup visor covers for the visor pivot are different. that could be good, as I am on a first name basis with the nice lady at CIMA - I have gone thru four, as they seem to blow off with some regularity from my N102.

    I am passing thru UK this week, will try to pickup a visor and try it out.

    internal visor

    so, just to confirm understanding. The internal visor is mounted to the pivots under the clear standard visor with different pivot mounting hardware? do you have to open the clear visor to open the internal?
    That's different from every other internal visor'ed helmet, isn't it?

    Nolan N103

    I tried one on in Germany a couple of weeks ago at the Held Factory Store. I don't believe a 102 will retrofit to the new shield. It is an internal shield much like the new Sy Max.
