I just replaced my aging fullface with a Nolan flip. Got it on sale !
I was suprised, that compared to my older ARAI, the Nolan was quieter and seals around visor were tighter. The sunshield overlay is also a bonus.
However, I did find that riding late afternoon, into sun, the overlay was not enough and I also needed my sunglasses.
One thing nice about the overlay, if I went into shaded areas and had trouble seeing thru overlay into shadows, I just merely tilted my head backwards slightly, and I could look below the bottom of the overlay without a problem. If you are not using the ovelay, it must be flipped up and since it is on the outside of the visor, under some circumstances wind/air pressure/motion will cause it to flex. I could hear it moving from time to time, depending on direction of air flow.
Overall, the Nolan is nice. A couple of times I did catch myself forgetting to lower the flip before I would pull out into the road ? !
