Nolan N43 close but...

The helmet looks nice enough. It appears huge. I found the chin bar is low compared to Shoei. Tiny cheek pads, I feel vunerable compared to other full face helmets. The inner shade works well even wearing eye glasses, no problem there. No ratchet for windshield. I like to be able to ride with the shield up a notch or 2 for ventilation. It has 2 positions, up or down, no-go for me. A friend bought the helmet off me. The euro model has top ventilation holes which is different.

I ended up returning this helmet for 2 reasons: (1) No way to attach the clip on headset/microphone (no lip on lower edge of helmet) and (2) The way the lining is fastened is the same as our old N42 helmets. The clips in the back of both our N42's broke and the liner keeps wanting to hang out. Looks like the same thing will eventually happen to the N43. Other than that the helmet is very nicely made and feels like a quality piece compared to the HJC's we bought to replace it (which in fairness cost half as much). The internal sun shade is also a nice feature -- won't add wind noise and catch bugs like the external shade on the N42.

This helmet is a hit. Great fit & finish. Sun shade on the inside where it belongs as not to rattle. Large enough not to interfere with your vision when in use. Interior is a nice satin finish & does not stick to the skin as some others do, though it does stick some. Just a nice product. Noise level is average for this type of helmet, air flow ok.

Really like the N43 NCom helmet for it's looks and the sun visor on the inside of the faceshield. Size is just a bit smaller than what their size charts say. Only con is the HD headsets do not fit very well. Guess that is why they made their own! (which I will get down the road since I like the helmet so much)

Liked the look of the helmet as soon as I got it out of the box. The fit was perfect.
