Nolan Helmets was founded in Italy in 1973. The Nolan Group now manufactures and distributes Nolan, X-Lite and Grex helmet brands - all manufactured in Italy. Nolan and X-Lite cover the mid to high end of the market while Grex are a lower priced helmet range targeting newer riders (presumably aimed at stopping the tide of young scooter riders in Italy who like to ride helmetless - often via A&E). Nolan and X-Lite produce quality helmets that are used by some of the top MotoGp and WSB riders - including Danillo Petrucci and Chas Davies. Nolan Group helmets are regularly in our top 10 safest helmet brands lists - so are a brand with an excellent reputation for safety.You'll find all our Nolan helmet reviews on this page (also see our X-Lite page).
Latest Nolan Helmets: Reviews & Previews
You'll find all our Nolan helmet reviews and previews in this first section. Click 'load more' below the first bunch and it'll keep on loading more reviews of Nolan lids - or scroll on down the page to see them sorted into types of helmets like full face, modular etc.
Nolan are modular specialists, making more modular and cross-over helmets than pretty well any other helmet maker. There's some real niche helmets too with removable chin bars and massive visors for a proper open face helmet feel. Their flip-front helmets are proven to be some of the best protecting too. Here's all the Nolan modulars we've covered.
Full Face Nolan Helmets
Unusually for a helmet maker, Nolan doesn't have a huge range of full face helmets, focusing mainly on modulars as well as leaving top end more track-focused helmets to their sister company, X-Lite. Still, they do make some nice full face lids and you'll find our look over their current (and past) full face helmets below.
Adventure, Dual Sport and Motocross Nolan Helmets
Nolan push the boundaries of helmet design quite a bit, so you'll find some more unusual types of adventure and offroad helmets here. Many are very flexible designs that switch from open face to full face configurations and work well as both on-road and off-road helmets.
Lower Priced Nolan Helmets
Nolan helmets broadly represent good value for money with the vast majority coming in at a mid price point - higher priced Nolan group helmets generally being released under the X-Lite name. The helmets below are at the bottom end of the Nolan price range, meaning you get a great Nolan brand helmet and technology for really not very much money at all.
Best Protecting Nolan Helmets
Nolan does make some really great protecting helmets and their helmets regularly appear on our Safest Motorcycle Helmet Brands annual lists. Those scores are based on SHARP helmet test data and, although there hasn't been a Nolan SHARP tested for a while, they always seem to score 4/5 stars (which is a great score). you'll find the best protecting Nolan helmets below.
