Product Description


Advanced design technology and hand-laid use of premium shell materials like carbon fiber, aramid and fiberglass combine to make this modular helmet extremely lightweight, quiet, comfortable and durable. An innovative one-touch open/close locking system makes for easy operation of the flip-up chin bar and face shield, while an advanced channeling ventilation system provides superior airflow to achieve amazing climate control and eliminate fogging.

The optically superior Pinlock-ready face shield provides 95% UV protection and utilizes an innovative center-touch locking design for an extremely secure seal. The integrated smoke-tinted sunshield adjusts quickly and easily to three different positions with a one-touch lever.

A removable, washable liner enhances comfort through its anti-bacterial and moisture wicking properties. Exceeds D.O.T safety standards.

Nice UpgradeReview by Bradford
I have worn Arai Quantum's XL for years. this is my first non Arai helmet. It is an XL, fit is just a bit more snug but then again it replaces a >10 year old helmet. It is quieter (though I still wear hearing protection), ventilation is good. I really like the sun screen lens and the flip up chin rest. The breath guard and chin guard pop a retention snap occasionally with routine handling but this is not too much of a problem. The main face shield is very clear and free of distortion. Some barely noted distortion in sun screen lens.

It seems nice and light for me.

If a helmet could be made to be quieter, that would be an improvement. I do ride bikes with minimal to no fairing. (currently a 2006 Multistrada). Overall, I like it a lot. (Posted on 7/3/14)

A Simple Guide to Modular Helmets

We sell five modulars; good, better (two versions) and best (two versions). Top to bottom they are from Korea, Italy, Japan and Italy. You can’t go wrong with any of these. Some models fit different head shapes (round, wide, long-oval, etc.) better than others, and you’ll find specific information about this in the detailed product descriptions for each helmet. General fitting instructions and some useful tips are found in our Helmet Fit Guide. – Mr. Subjective.



Lightweight and very quiet. The standard cheek pads were very tight on my face (different thicknesses are available from RPHA, but improvising after the first day of a longer trip with this brand new helmet I used my motel room’s plastic ice bucket to compress the cheek-pad foam almost flat overnight…and from the next morning onward these standard cheek pads were all-day comfortable). Airflow vents extremely effective. Double D ring chin strap a pain after using the great Nolan chin strap latch, but you get used to them after a few days of regular use. This one is very lightweight, which is nice. From Korea.


Nolan (Two Styles)

Kind of gimmick-y in styling and features, but very nice overall. From one of the world’s largest helmet companies. I wear an older, simpler version of this helmet for 95% of my riding (X1002). By far the easiest to use chin strap latch system. Lots of other nice details and features. Durable. Fairly quiet. Integrated intercom or audio system available. The ultimate chin-bar opening latch and hinge system. From Italy.

Best (Two Models)

Shoei Neotec

What I'd probably buy today, and would immediately void the warranty by taking the wonderful chin strap buckle off my old Nolan and sew it onto the chinstrap of one of these, replacing the forever-proven safe-and-reliable-slow (ergonomic P.I.A. in short-distance daily riding) double-D ring system. Superb quality of construction and details, everywhere. Everything works perfectly. A second or third generation design from one of the world's best helmet companies. From Japan.

Nolan Xlite 1004

Twenty years ago this European company popularized modulars…their innovative N100 was the first of this type to sell in large numbers. Since then they’ve continued to lead and now the latest X1004 further advances numerous modular technologies. These are very light, ultra quiet, have an easy and fast chinstrap buckle, and like the Shoei, everything simply works perfectly. This maybe is their 5th or 6th generation design, and it shows in every picky detail. Nicely integrated audio and communications systems are available separately, and this helmet feels and works great in all riding situations. You won’t be disappointed. They also are lower priced than closely comparable models so you’ll save. More than a c-note. Italy.

Related notes:

Modular helmets provide superior versatility. At highway speeds and on sport and unfaired bikes you’ll enjoy ‘full-face’ protection and comfort, yet during short stops, or when riding slow somewhere you can open up the chin bar. This can be especially nice in hot weather. If you want only one helmet to do both all-day longer-distance rides and also for frequent short-hop urban riding, we recommend them.

New helmets take a while to 'break in'. Especially 'full coverage' and modular types. They also take a while to learn the various tabs and slots that open the chin bar and visor and vents. For a while one fumbles around with a new helmet but eventually one learns to use the various bits and it all gets easier. On my old Nolan helmet everything is now second nature.
