Great companies are born out of great passions. Nolan has always meant "passion for two wheels". The history of Nolan began in 1972 when Lander Nocchi, an entrepreneur in the motorbike and car accessories sector, decided to produce motorcycle helmets that could be lighter and more affordable than those on the market at the time. He purchased, from a company in the United States, an innovative plastic material, Lexan, which was light and versatile, and started producing polycarbonate helmets. In the following 37 years, other important ideas have been put into production, and they proved to be well known and highly valued products by thousands of customers in more than 70 countries around the globe.
