Got

Hate the pinlock on mine. Imposible to have a tight fit. Look like the diecut have been made too short. No mater what position I turn the eccentric, there is a huge gap somewhere. I can only decide where I want it. Is it only me or other owners got the same?

One thing I would change on the helmet would be to put some kind of screen in the air trap. I often receive tiny black flies in the eyes, like 2-3 times a year. I thick they make their way from the forehead opening and flow down just upper your eyes.

Nolan customer service is also painful and mostly automated. You know? with those pre typed answers or questions that make you think your dealing with a robot.....

N-Com Units?

I know this thread is a bit old, I'm hoping that someone is still watching. I was wondering if anyone tried to install the N-Com B4+ into the X-lite X551? I'm trying not to spend another $40 and 15 days on shipping.

No, to my knowledge still no US distribution. I spoke with Nolan USA about a month ago and they said they haven't heard anything about Nolan bringing it to the US. Apparently they didn't think a non-modular Nolan would do well enough in the US to bring it in or something to that nature.

It's too bad, it's the best DS helmet out there in my opinion.

I ordered mine direct from Italy. It was the cheapest route since the exchange rate for US dollars to UK Pounds or Euros was not good.

Both my buddy and I ordered our helmets through the same place. The guy's name is Mauro and he's with www.emlineamoto.com and sells a lot of stuff on eBay where he has 100% positive feedback.

If he has the helmet in stock, it'll ship within a week and arrive in the US in a couple weeks. That's how my transaction went. The color my buddy wanted was not in stock, so his took a couple weeks longer since it had to drop ship from Nolan.

Thanks for passing on the details.

Have you ever tried on an N44 by any chance? If so, how is the fit compared to that?

Hey Revver

I've just returned from a 6000 mile trip up to Canada and Montana, and while returning through Texas had plenty of time to think about my gear in the trip. Again, the helmet has been outstanding in everything it's been through.

Damn good helmet and seriously glad I bought it. Waaaaaay better than the XD3 I had in so many areas. Light, comfortable, excellent and now I can't live without the drop down sun shades

Banff to Texas

I have the shades on my n44. Once you try them it is very hard to go back. I'm hoping I can buy this one soon from the store you guys mentioned. Seems like it is worth a shot.

I want this helmet, but I've been burned buying things that require a specific fit online. Are there any helmets that I can try on locally that fit like the x-551? I really want one, but I know that if I order from overseas, it will be the wrong size.

Can't speak 2 head shape, but I wear a XXL in all helmet brands and sizing is the same. I can wear either a Shoei helmet or an Arai helmet, but this X-Lite shape is the most comfortable of all for me. Ymmv

Understandable, it's a risk. I wear a Medium in the Arai XD and AGV Dual Evo. I'd say the sizing is slightly looser than the Arai, especially in the cheeks. The AGV is spot on. My assumption is that because both the AGV and Nolan are made in Italy, the sizing is similar.
