Nolan has become one of the paladins of motorcycle gear ‘Made in Italy’. Founded by Lander Nocchi, a transalpine businessman who up till them worked in the motorcycle accessories sector, but whose great passion was helmets, so he decided to direct his business towards this sector in 1972. Nolan soon turned his sights onto technological innovation, gambling on the introduction into Europe of polycarbonate in helmets, a thermoplastic resin that is still used today in the manufacture of helmets thanks to the very optimum lightness and resistance ratio.
Maybe the most popular models of the brand are the modular helmets. Nolan has designed some of the most popular modular helmets of all times, being a clear reference for touring helmets that allow you to enjoy a helmet that lets you ride mile after mile with maximum safety.
Nolan also has a range of urban helmets which complements the polyvalent modular helmets. Nolan allows most of their models the possibility of installing the N-Com, the brand’s intercom increasing the versatility of their helmets. The N-Com range is very complete, as it not also introduces the latest communications technology, like the Bluetooth system, but it also includes a full catalogue of accessories for motorcycles.
But Nolan also has sports helmets, for road as well as off-road. The brand has equipped riders of the ilk of Marco Melandri or Casey Stoner throughout their sports careers, laying aside any doubts about their dominion of in the world of high competition.
Nolan’s success has allowed them to create the corporation, Nolan Group, making this group one the world standards as regards helmets.
