Tester Ali­son Sil­cox Time tested Six months/4500 miles What’s good? I was a lit­tle ap­pre­hen­sive as I’d not worn Nolan be­fore but now won­der why I’ve waited so long. Com­fort plays a big part in choos­ing a hel­met and the N87 fit­ted well from day one, tak­ing very lit­tle break­ing in. It’s got fea­tures that you’d not ex­pect from a lid in this price bracket, with a re­mov­able and wash­able lin­ing, drop-down sun vi­sor and pin­lock insert in­cluded. The ratchet-style fas­tener is easy to use plus there are plenty of vents, which are easy to op­er­ate when wear­ing gloves. It’s re­cently won the MCN Award for Best Prod­uct of 2016, and I can def­i­nitely see why: it’s been hard wear­ing and is very good value for money. The lid comes prepped for an in­ter­com sys­tem, which is avail­able as a £45 op­tional ex­tra from Nolan.

What’s not? There’s one an­noy­ing lit­tle fault – there’s a small re­mov­able breath guard which con­tin­u­ally falls out, and now I’ve lost it to­tally so the vi­sor fogs around the edge of the pin­lock which is a pain on damp days.
