About 70 into a tree.
Luckily I can't remember a thing about the traumatic incident.
hi Bigborett , can you let us know how the sizing is , I take a large in Arai.
Yes I will. I take a large in the Arai as well.
I have gone large in this also, even though there seemed to be some discussion about them sizing a little differently.
Yep, that's the one. It's waiting at the post office for me.
Hopefully I can get there today and pick it up.
Ok, here you go, unridden review.
Looks great, fits nicely. I wore a large Arai XD4 with a slight hot spot at the frontal lobe, I repeat slight, this large feels very nice with no hot spot. Lining looks good quality material and may be nicer than the XD4 long term. Note that there are no quick pull cheek pieces. It is considerably lighter than the XD4. The visor seems nice, some have commented about distortion, I couldn't see any in the study. A lower lock would be nice on the visor, but I don't think any worse than most.
Now as some have said, I think ventilation is lacking a little. I may go the course of boring a hole in the inner face piece for more. I love my fresh air even when cold. There is plenty available through the shell, but the liner directs it elsewhere.
The helmet comes with a pinlock insert but no dark visor. Glasses or sunnies fit very nicely. Not sure about goggles yet without removing the visor.
The quality is maybe not quite that of the XD4 but at about $300 cheaper its not to bad. Think it is a big step ahead of some of the cheaper helmets and of course fit and comfort are a big thing.
I think the lighter weight will be great on a longer trip.
Nishua Carbon on Sale at Louis. De for 168 euro
Mine is between here and there - with spare visor and a pair of gloves.
Not made it onto Auspost tracking yet... watching.
It does take a couple of days to get an account set up which was weird. Still not sure if it or the guest option worked
I just purchased the Klim Krios peak to try on this helmet as the Nishua one vibrates against the side of the visor and makes a very irritating noise. The Klim peak has different venting and structure, especiallly at the sides where it attaches to the helmet so hopefully eliminates the noise, unfortunately I can't test this until next year as my helmet is in QLD, other than that really irritating issue I really like the fit, comfort and light weight.
Mine does not make noise or vibrate as yet , might be the height / shape of the screen that creates turbulence doing that though . I can't say Iv'e ever seen another lid that uses the same visor attachment set up as the Nishua , nor have I seen a helmet with a soft rubber seal around the face aperture to stop water and cold air entering between the helmet and visor like the Nishua has .
I had been using a Zeus helmet for about 6 years and an Arai XD 1 before that , this Nishua is light years better than either of those in all aspects , especially the weight .
I fitted the pinlock before my last ride as the weather prediction was for rain , I rode for a couple of hours in the rain and the pinlock worked great . I don't know of any other helmet that comes with a pinlock std .
My verdict for the Nishua is 5 stars . Happy with it .
Where did you get the Klim peak from ?
@Kiwirich Adventuremoto have them in stock
Klim Kris Karbon same helmet.
Agree that the Nishua is a great helmet, just needs a bit more airflow through the chin vent (drill some foam out) easily the best wet weather helmet I have ever used, no water ingress at all...
If the Klim peak solves the noise then 5 star rating...
I'm seriously considering the Nishua but I need to know if it comes with holes for intercom speakers. Can you chime in?
Not sure what you mean by holes for speakers.In the exterior or the padding around the ears ?
The padding around the ears in the interior. Is it suitable to install speakers in the Nishua?
The list of features say "Compatible with Sena communication system, SMH10R, 3S-W and 3S-WB" but not Cardo, Shark, Nexx, X-lite, Schuberth and Nolan. But a choice of one is still a choice.
installed a Sena 20s no problems with speaker space and my ears
Thanks for chiming in.
Does it have those little recesses other helmets have for the speakers? My ears usually fit very snuggly
NFI as I only use Arai XD's and now the Nishua
