European Motorcycle Gear and Apparel Distributor
Louis Moto, a distributor of motorcycle gear and apparel in Europe, offers a wide range of products from trusted brands in the industry. While branded products from popular names like Arai, Shoei, and Shark come at a higher price, Louis also caters to beginner riders and those on a tighter budget with its own in-house brands. These products are built to industry standards and comply with safety regulations, providing affordable alternatives and making motorcycling more accessible to a wider audience.
Nishua is one of the brands offered by Louis Moto, specializing in helmets. It has opened doors for many riders who want to save money on gear without compromising safety. All Nishua helmets are currently ECE 22.06-certified, and its latest offering, the NTX-4 Evo, is designed for street riders who want touring amenities. The helmet has a sporty and streamlined exterior design that is suitable for various types of bikes, including sportbikes, naked streetfighters, tourers, and ADVs. It is made of fiberglass, which is known for its ability to absorb and dissipate impacts better than a standard thermoplastic shell. The shell comes in two sizes, available in a total of six sizes.
Features and Comfort
The NTX-4 Evo helmet features a multi-density EPS foam liner and a completely removable and washable inner liner. It includes cutouts for glasses wearers and a drop-down visor to protect against the sun. The large clear visor is equipped with a Pinlock anti-fog lens for all-weather visibility, and a quick-release mechanism allows for easy visor changes without the need for tools.
In terms of comfort, the helmet has multiple air intakes at the front, including one on the chinbar and another on the top of the head. A heat extractor at the rear ensures adequate airflow, and an anti-swirl bib reduces noise while riding at high speeds. The helmet is secured with a quick-release micrometric buckle for easy wearing and removal.
Pricing and Availability
The Nishua NTX-4 Evo is available on Louis Moto's website in one plain black colorway and three graphic options. It comes in sizes ranging from XS to 2XL and has a starting price of 229.99 euros, or approximately $250 USD. Considering its safety features and convenient amenities, it offers good value for money.
