The two biggest assets of the Company are its unique technical and production skills and its strive for innovation. This combination brought Nolan to success and the Company now offers a wide range of products, designed for any kind of rider and able to meet the needs of the most demanding customers. Over time, Nolan® has been raising the performance level of its products, ensuring at the same time they would comply with the strictest production regulations and using state-of-the-art materials.
X-lite® came into being in 1998. A new brand for a second Company and also a real challenge, since the Nolan Group pushed the boundaries of its own experience and know-how, and moved into the composite materials sector. In the new special plant for the exclusive production of composite fibre helmets, the most advanced industrial technology goes hand in hand with craftsman’s care and skills, which are typically associated with the processing of composite materials.
Extremely lightweight and compact (thanks to its high carbon content and the availability of three sizes of outer shell), emergency cheek pad removal system (NERS – Nolan Emergency Release System), reliable visor mechanism with Double Action device, efficient RAF (Racing Air Flow) ventilation system and internal Carbon Fitting Racing Experience comfort padding (with innovative net construction) – these are the highlight technical features that make up this exclusive product, aimed at the more demanding rider.
