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).

Modular/Flip-up Nolans

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.
