I was recently in a crash. My head is fine thanks to my Nolan N-90. I was struck by another vehicle and received several injuries. I landed on my head and would have been much more severely injured had I not had such a high quality helmet. I am truly glad I purchased your product. Raymond C., NY
Thanks to your excellent helmet design, I survived a wreck last year in which I and my Vespa GTS250 were hit from behind by a car and knocked into the back of a bus. My head hit either the bus or the car (it happened too quickly to tell), but my Nolan N43E Trilogy saved my head from injury. I am using my Nolan N102 as a backup until my settlement is complete, then I plan to buy another N43E Trilogy. I love the field of vision and the light weight of it! I just wanted to thank you and your engineers for an outstanding helmet. You helped save my life, and I am very grateful! Many thanks and best wishes, Andy J. Kentucky
I hope this little note gets to the right person, as I felt compelled to write you and thank you for a superior product. On October 20th of this year I was cruising at 75 mph on an interstate highway on my 2010 Harley Ultra Classic. One second I was enjoying a beautiful fall ride, another second I was fighting to maintain control of my bike as the rear swing arm failed. I wrestled with the 1000 pound bike for almost a half mile before I could not keep it on the road and had to decide whether to hit some approaching guard rails or ditch the bike in a shoulder area. I don't remember coming off the bike but when I did I landed on my head at roughly 60 plus miles per hour. Lucky for me just two weeks prior I had purchased a new Nolan N103 helmet. There is no doubt without this superior quality helmet the outcome would have been fatal. I hit so hard my fore head was badly bruised, both eyes were blackened and my left eye was filled with blood. I did receive a broken back but am up and about with a brace, had I not been wearing a quality helmet I fear the outcome would have been worse. I wanted to personally thank you for this quality, comfortable, and good looking product. You saved my life so I can ride once again. Once I am back on the road rest assured I will never wear any other brand. I have passed along info to all my riding friends and they have all told me they will be wearing your helmets. Thank You!!

On Friday,09/07/2012, I crashed my motorcycle while enroute to work. Both me and my "06 Honda 1800 Goldwing went sliding down the tarmac on my right side for approximately 35 feet. Along with my protective textile riding gear, my Nolan N43 helmet saved my hide. I believe my Nolan helmet saved me from alot of pain and a long stay in the hospital as the right side of my face would have sustained some heavy duty road rash. My helmet is scraped up a bit, but my Bride says I look as pretty as ever. Thanks Nolan for making good looking and functional product. A very grateful Michael S. Michigan
On April 3, 2012 I was on my way home from work on I-85 south when a man in a Honda Accord started to merge into my lane. I was beside him and blew my horn but as he kept coming I was able to see him and he had ear phones in his ears. By the time I realized this he hit me causing me to lose control at around 65 mph. I do not recall anything until they were putting me in the ambulance. I was later told I had flipped over and over (off of the bike) five or six times. The bike, a 2007 Honda VFR anniversary edition, continued another 50 to 65 yards down the pavement, I ended up against the guard rail and the driver did not stop. I was wearing my N102 at the time and I feel it did its' job. I do have a broken neck which may heal without surgery. The helmet has a crease about three inches long at the rear right top but it did not open, come loose and did protect a head that was flipping down the interstate five or six times. My friends I ride with have often commented on how they like the features of my Nolan well now they have an even better reason to like it. As I had damage to my right foot (two surgeons said it was the worse tendon damage they had ever seen), I will not be riding for a while but will be purchasing a new Nolan before I do. Thanks for the quality you produce. Dewey M.
I was in an accident last night. I was rear ended by a car doing 68 in a 55 while I was turn(10 mph) you helmet saved me from a head injury. I did hurt my back. the doc said I broke something. But your helmet protected my head just the way it should have. I want to say thank you for the great quality and protection. I will be purchasing another. N43e Trilogy, same color and everything.

I am a police officer in Austin, TX. I was in a serious motorcycle collision on May 4, 2012. Please send me an email address so I can send you guys some pictures of the Nolan helmet that saved my life. 45-55 mph head on collision. My r1200rt and I against a Saturn Vue. The Vue was totaled. I broke my hip in half on the handle bars and was thrown about 15-20 feet in the air. I landed head first so hard I broke two molars on my lower jaw and fractured my C-6 vertebra. Doctors put bolts and plates in the hip and said I would not walk without crutches for 12 weeks. No surgery on neck but was told I would wear neck brace for 12 weeks also. Got off crutches at week 7 and was told by doctors to take neck brace off at week 8. It's week 10 now and I'm starting to jog again. I want to thank you guys for making such a great product. If it was not for your helmet I would not be alive right now. James H.
Last Sunday I was involved in a motorcycle accident. The bike took serious damage as did I. I wore all of my protective gear as I always do, your Nolan N43 helmet being my preferred helmet. During the accident, I was flipped over the handlebars and sent airborne, I slid on the ground for about 15 feet. During my ground time, the helmet was cut by rocks and the face shield gouged. Your helmet not only held up to the abuse, but prevented significant trauma to my head. I wish to replace my helmet with another Nolan, Thank you for your quality product, I know it made a difference. Eric B.
I just wanted to thank you for saving my life in a car vs motorcycle accident the other day. The rest will heal in time, but my noggin is in good shape. And I thank the N 100 E for that! Have a great week! Roger C.
Early last year, deciding our old helmets had aged and needed to be replaced, my wife and I did a thorough analysis of the available helmets and read all we could. We purchased two Nolan N43 N Com helmets. Aside from loving the comfort, there is no doubt that this helmet saved my wife's life and maybe mine as well. While riding in North Georgia last fall, we had a tangle with a cattle truck missing a turn and taking our side of the road. We managed to scrape by the truck but were pitched off our Gold Wing. My wife bounced off her airbag (me) and flew at least 20 feet, landing squarely on her face shield. Now this is not a full face helmet, but the insulated structural flip up shield held in the down position took the full hit. Other than some scraped hands and bruises, and a ruined helmet, she was fine. I wasn't so lucky but my helmet did some heavy duty protection. Allstate bought us two new Nolan's as well as replacing riding boots and jackets - the gear saved them a bunch of bucks! Thank you Nolan! Philip E. / Daytona Beach, FL
Just want to send a couple of lines to inform you that one of your helmets that I purchased new saved my life, I had an accident on interstate 40 in the state of AZ. I was riding a Harley Davidson FLHTCU and had the cruise control set at 75 mi. per hr. The speed limit is 75 on that area and so for no reason the handle bars started shaking left and right and I couldn’t disengage the cruise control so in a couple of seconds the front wheel twisted to the left and I was ejected like a projectile at that speed. I landed on the pavement at that speed, rolled and slid for like a block and a half and while I was rolling and tumbling I hit the pavement with my head several times and nothing happened, not a scratch on my head or face. I just broke my wrist and lot of road rash but I survived to tell the story. I believe that I am not supposed to be alive but still here thanks to my Nolan helmet. Elijio A (Leo)
Thank you for making a great product! I am a club racer here in Colorado and high sided in a race yesterday in my Nolan 602 Stoner replica and landed on my head and shoulder. While I broke my collarbone my head is no worse for the wear and it was fine. Thanks for making such a great product. Dagan M. Englewood, CO
I am writing to thank you so very much for your work in developing a SAFE helmet. My husband and I were on separate motorcycles, with him in the lead riding outside edge. I rode back a few bike lengths and inside along the line. When a pick-up truck turned left in front of my husband, he had 20 feet to get out of the way. Rather than t-bone his head into the truck door, he opted to lay his motorcycle down and hopefully skid a bit.... but at 55 MPH, he did his best, but bounced once and cart wheeled like a ragdoll in front of me. After rolling twice too, he now is facing the opposite direction with his legs over the centerline...in my path. I had more time, did skid, but could keep my bike under control and not HIT the man I married 40 years ago. No, the picture was not pretty for me to see, but thinking of his head hitting and his brains splattering out seems it would be worse. He thankfully had NO concussion. Though unconscious for awhile, his memories of meeting the pavement were erased. I am so thankful and amazed at how well your helmet protected his chin and head. I was not a fan of full face helmets of any kind for about a dozen years, comfortable in my 'shorty' DOT approved helmet. He insisted we buy the Nolan convertibles for our 35th wedding anniv. Now the 'proof is in the pudding' so to speak and we will always wear your quality helmets. Please thank your R and D people for their excellent knowledge. Myself, our children, grandchildren and his biker friends and whole congregation of parishioners will be forever grateful. God bless you all.
Sincerely and with JOY, Linda H, Lansing, Mi... where they are trying to repeal the helmet law....
My wife recently had an accident where we hit a deer in the middle of Wyoming and I am pleased to say that we were both wearing your helmets (N42). I am very thankful that you put as much research in to the design of your helmet and the face shield. The helmet did not fail and the face shield did not shatter or come apart. Again thank you and I will be wearing another Nolan helmet when I get back on my motorcycle. J.F. (2007)
I just wanted to let you know that thanks to your helmets, I am alive. On July 26th, I was riding on the Cherohala Skyway in the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, United States. I took a spill on my bike going around a corner at 40 mph and flipped over the handlebars on my bike and landed head first on the ground. I was wearing a Nolan N100E flip face helmet. The helmet took a direct hit to the front left side of my face and I then rolled about 100 feet. Looking at my helmet afterwards, I can see another impact over my right ear where my head hit the ground again. I walked away from this accident with two dislocated shoulders, and some road rash. I had absolutely no broken bones, and most importantly, no head injuries. I have included pictures of my helmet showing the impact points. The helmet stayed in one piece and did its job. Even though a large part of the impact was on the face shield, it did not crack or pop off like some people said would happen with a flip face type helmet. I was always happy with the helmet before the accident, and now that I've crashed once with it, I will be buying another one just like it to replace it. Anyway, thanks again for making a great product. M.E.
