I got this helmet for Christmas in 2012 and I love it. It replaced an older model Nolan that I also liked very much, but this one is even better. The features I like about both helmets is the strap clasp, which is so much easier to use than D rings, the flip up component design, and the built in sun shield. I like the 104 better than my old Nolan because they improved the latch on the flip up chin bar. It took a little getting used to, but now it is much easier to release than the old one. They also improved the sun shield by putting it inside the main shield instead of outside. This also made it a little more difficult to raise and lower, but once I got used to it, it is perfect. The shape of the new helmet changed as well. Compared to my old Nolan, this helmet is narrower from side to side, but longer from front to back. I have a huge, wide head, but with the addition of a new size xxxl, it is not a problem. The longer length from front to back leaves more room in front of my face, and it makes my no fog face mask work even better than before. All in all, I could not imagine a better helmet.
