Bell Revolver EVO Modular Helmet

As per the title does anyone use this helmet? I like the modular style.I've used a cheap one a few years back and enjoyed the ability to flip it up and have ppl understand what I'm say instead of...MMffffggGGG MMmmmmFFfffHHHffddd ? translation ..which way to MCDs?

Also I found in slower urban traffic (the freeway that turns into a parking lot at 3PM for 2 hours)being able to flip it up allows for better ventilation in hot weather. The new ones have the embedded sun shield which I think is a good idea. It also allows better access to use prescription glasses for us visually impaired ( old geezers).

I do find the modular helmet is somewhat heavier but my old one never seemed to be a problem , even when travelling. The price is $219 here but I was offered a much better price. It was a gloss black with 2 white stripes down it.I'd prefer a flat black because it would go better with most of my clothes The padding looks easy to remove and it does have space for speakers by design since I want to go BT soon.

I currently use a Quantum2 Arai which is past it's best before date.As long as I don't hit my head I should be ok

I bought the Evo Revolver in May this year, and have about 4 thousand miles on it. It is comfortable and convienent. It comes with a flip down internal dark visor, which is easy to manipulate with gloves on. It has three flow through vents which can be opened or closed easily with gloves on. And yes it is great to flip up when your going slow, need to talk, or stop for gas.

DaveM, nice helmet. Unfortunately it's out of my price range. The EVO is in my price rage (less than 1/2 the N104) so it's worth a look at.

The reviews I've read so far are encouraging. It seems to be noisier than some but I do have earplugs and I want to use speakers for musc in the helmet rather than earbuds.

I was a Nolan fan for many years, I purchased a Revolver early this year. The best thing is the sun visor is not grey, it is almost a "blue blocker" type that allows you to distinguish shaded areas rather than just see a grey cloud.
Very light and durable helmet.

Still using the N102.....might find that, or even the 103 Nolan on sale......

Nolan got THE highest ratings ( Sharp UK) for chin bar retention in an a face/road interface ( or their lab version of it) just saying...............

I expect all open face/flip front helmets are noisier than full......the Nolan certainly is....but then, I'm already deaf.............

The Nolan N104 is $404 + tax at MC superstore.
Nolan N102 is only $149 but sizes are limited.
..Oh well
Too many choices!!!! I don't like ordering a helmet online because of the sizing. I like to try it on before I buy it. I'd really like to have my Arai Kevin Schwantz back.

Hi Max

just a matter of interest, I bought my Nolan N104 for cheaper than that here in Aussie with AUD at my dealers.
