Default Really nice

It's really nice. Mine just has a swastika and deaths head. Seriously it is really nice. Is it painted or an applique of some kind?

The Flying Tigers artwork has been one of my favorites since I was a kid. I have a small sticker set on the chin bar of my older Nolan.

I saw a Liberal Democrat at the Occupy Seattle Rally wearing one just like it


Probably just a coincidence eh?......

Default Answer to my own question

Original artwork for production helmets is transfered as a decal to the injection molded shell. Yours is one of the best I've seen. A lot nicer than the boy racer transfers.

Cool link! I'm on my second Nolan N-series (102 and 103) so it's pretty neat to see how it was made. I want one of the new N-104s next; they look like they've continued to improve the line with better ventilation, wider eyeports, etc.

It's amazing how nice they can look!

The new ARAI Signet-whatever has gorgeous 'paint'.

Functionally, though, it has two serious drawbacks.

One, the cheek pads are shaped in such a way that they channel the arms of my eyeglasses up higher than my ears, causing the glasses to "float" above my nose. I had to use duct tape and electrical tape to flatten an area for the arms to pass through.

Second, it's noisy. Hurricane noisy. It's got speaker pockets behind some mesh, so I stuffed them with cotton. Helps a little.

Fits great, though.

Did you know that Disney designed the Flying Tiger?
