How you liking it? It is very similar to my N91. My pinlock screen recently failed though. The corners curled as if they saw too much heat and so they don't seal anymore. It still helps to prevent fogging, but it is nothing like when it's sealed.

Here's my Scorpion EXO-700, believe it or not I cleaned the visor last night. I guess the bugs were out in full force this morning.

Still havent got the time to test it. But visors are the same part number. So... To be honest, I wanted to buy Nolan N104, tried it and it wasn't suitable to my head shape. Then I tried N90 and it was perfect. I also tried full face N86 and it has the same shape as N104. So I decided to buy N90 despite the fact that it is little bit older model. Now I am wondering about buying N-COM B1. Don't know if it is so useful as it is expensive. Till now, my N90 is still brand new, unused so I can't tell anything except the fact that It has my head shape and I like it.

P.S. just bought N-COM B3. I'll pick it up tomorrow.

P.P.S. And here it is

I love it. Huge field of view, tons of air flow and looks cool too!

I love the look of that. I will probably replace my Airoh S4 somewhere this year and this might be an option. The only downside I find (with the Airoh as well) that you cannot close the front vent... But I love enduro style helmets for the field of view. (And I have my HJC for other rides.)

You can close the chin vent but none of the others. I wish we could get the Airhead helmets here in the States.
