The N70-2 GT is a touring crossover helmet born from Nolan's wealth of experience and innovation in this field. Its impressive technical features render it a versatile headgear tailored and crafted especially for the most adventurous motor-touring enthusiasts and the most demanding journeys.
The N70-2 GT Switchback is a great multi helmet by Nolan for the multitasking rider. These type of helmets are the epitome of versatility. You can play around with all the removable parts and set up the helmet in various different configurations to tailor to your needs! The N70-2 GT helmet offers versatility with six distinct configurations. This flexibility stems from its three components - the visor, removable protective chin guard, and peak - which can be attached individually, in pairs (visor or peak with the chin guard), or completely removed to adapt to various riding preferences.
Constructed from Polycarbonate, this N70-2 GT offers excellent protection and performance without having to break the bank. Polycarbonate is a widely used material in helmets because of its versatile benefits. It is both lightweight and durable, and it offers excellent shock absorption, providing effective head protection upon impact.
The helmet holds approval in a P/J dual configuration, as its detachable protective chin guard has successfully met the homologation standards mandated by UN/ECE regulations for full-face helmets.
The chinstrap closure is an important part of the helmet's effectiveness in the event of a fall, and it's also the part you interact with the most when putting on and taking off the helmet. N70-2 GT has a Microlock. This is a patented dual-lever retention system featuring precise micrometric adjustment. It comprises an ergonomically designed thermoplastic opening lever and a secondary aluminum toothed lever for secure fastening. The toothed lever is responsible for releasing the micrometric strip, making it so that the chin strap can only be opened with a wide rotation of the opening lever. This mechanism significantly reduces the risk of accidental release of the retention system.
All of our helmets are certified and road legal for European roads as this helmet is ECE 22.05 approved. The certification code "22.05" refers to the European safety standard for motorcycle helmets. This standard sets specific requirements for motorcycle helmets, such as shock absorption, chin strap quality and visibility, to ensure the safety of motorcyclists. An ECE 22.05 certificate indicates that a helmet meets these standards and is suitable for use on public roads in accordance with the regulations of certain regions worldwide.
The exclusive "AirBooster Technology" upper system provides optimal ventilation precisely where the rider's head needs it most. It effectively channels air from the upper air intake directly to the most crucial areas, preventing any air dispersion and ensuring maximum comfort even in the most challenging riding conditions.
The Nolan N70-2 GT offers the convenience of a built-in sun visor, which means you can quickly switch between clear vision and protection from bright sunlight without having to change an extra visor. This feature not only increases comfort during long rides, but also ensures that you are always ready for changing weather conditions. With the N70-2 GT's built-in sun visor, you maintain optimal visibility and safety even when the sun is bright.
The Nolan N70-2 GT Switchback multi-helmet effortlessly combines style and functionality in a beautifully designed whole. The striking lines running across the helmet create a dynamic look that is both sporty and sophisticated. The harmonious alternation of the colors red, white and blue, enhanced by silver-gray accents, gives this helmet a decidedly attractive and patriotic allure. It is not just a helmet; it is a fashionable expression of adventure on two wheels.

The circumference of your head provides a good guideline for the size you need for a helmet. Use a tape measure to measure the widest circumference of your head. For most people, this point is about an inch above your eyebrows, along the junction of your ear and over the lump on the back of your head. In the size chart you will find which size fits the circumference of your head in cm.
All heads are different and that is why manufacturers make different helmet shapes, this can be roughly categorized into three shapes: round, oval and round-oval.
Most motorcycle helmet manufacturers provide a predominantly round-oval fit so that they can appeal to the widest possible audience. Keep in mind that the fit of a helmet is very complex and difficult to describe exactly. Small differences may therefore also be possible within these three categories!
In general, the helmet sizes and the corresponding number of cm do overlap. If your previous old AGV was size L, chances are you also need an L for your new Nolan. But as mentioned before, there can be small differences in fit per brand and even series. That is why it can happen that the cool new helmet you've been eyeing, even when you have measured yourself well, simply wont fit well.
You can check the size and fit in the following ways:
A good "tight" fit is what you are looking for, after all, you don't want your helmet to suddenly start shifting while riding. If you think the helmet is too small, keep in mind that the inner lining hase to be worn in a bit, and the helmet will become a bit wider when used. The cheek pads in particular usually feel quite tight in the beginning but quickly become more comfortable.
The best way to determine whether a helmet has a good tight fit or simply is to small, is to keep the helmet on at home for half an hour to an hour. If you don't start to suffer from a headache or get red pressure spots, Then it's all good!
The ECE (22.05 / 22.06) standard is recognized in many countries around the world, but not all countries accept this standard for road use. It is important that your specific helmet has the correct certification for the country you are in.
The USA does not require helmets in every state. If you still want to wear a helmet for safety reasons, then there can in any case be no discussion about the certification of the helmet. Want to know which rules apply per state? You read it
Although the above quality marks are well known and widely used, there are also countries that use their own unique quality marks and only accept these.
The following countries have their own certification:
