SPEEDSTER V3 WITH BROWN LEATHER LINER -Looking for the bespoke retro look to match a bike as individual as you are. My Speedster V3 arrived directly from Davida today, matt black with a brown suede interior and black and white chequer pattern running down the middle. The fit, finish and style of my helmet makes it the best value for money I could have hoped for. If you want an individual look with exceptional quality then look no further and order your Speedster V3. You wont be disappointed.DAVIDA 74 WRS KIT REPLACEMENT PARTS - Simple and easy to set up, good quality.
92- I hate wearing anything on my head - my helmet is incredibly comfortable!
GREAT VISOR - The GOV visor looks really cool either up or down. I wear glasses so prefer a visor to goggles. This one is really strong, well-made and well-finished. Wind protection is very good. Where I live it doesn't rain very often, so I can't yet comment on that. Overall I am really pleased with this product. Ordering, delivery time, communication and service were all excellent.
BEING LIKE HENRY- T-shirt is well made tho pricey. Reassuringly pricy Whatever, I'll pull it on with a slightly superior grin. It'll probably still be going strong in 10 years time. Hope I am!
LEATHER JACKET - Slow delivery-got mixed up with Xmas orders. Jacket was well worth the wait. Good quality thick leather. All the best Davida!! Stuart Mitchell
DAVIDS HELMETS ARE BEST- This is an authentic old school high quality helmet! It is Made in England and it's quality is excellent! You have to have one for a nice old style of cafe racer motorcycle! I just love it!
QUALITY PRODUCT!THE BEST Goggles! Very good vision, beautiful design, great quality!
IT WOULD HAVE TO BE DESCRIBED AS ART! A very big thank you for my new helmet (a cream and brown 92), if it was the only example of this helmet it would have to be described as ART ! I really can't explain why l have dithered about until l became a septuagenarian before deciding to get one of these. Please give my thanks to ALL the David workers.
DAVIDA SPEEDSTER V3
Just received my Matt/Gloss Black Speedster v3 helmet.......awesome!! Not sure where to start, my wife decided to buy me one for my 50th (using my money,of course) as I had been going on about these helmets for so long. I decided on the new v3 because of the low profile.
From the very first phone call to Laura at Davida the service has been the best I have ever received from any retailer. The actual process of purchase was both efficient and pain free, a rare thing these days!
My Speedster v3 is perfect in ever way, size, fit and colour. I am buying the goggles next week and hopefully talk the Mrs into getting me another one for my 51th B'day! Thanks Davida for a truly brilliant product...
SUPERLATIVE QUALITY - I'm wearing my new helmet as I write this (I hope the neighbours don't see me). I'm not one given to hyperbole, but this is a fine helmet indeed. The finish is outstanding. I've looked until my eyes hurt, and I can't see a single blemish. The fit is snug yet comfortable, and my sunglasses are positioned perfectly. The SpeedsterV3's profile is smaller than my Shoei RJ Platinum R, so I don't look like Marvin the Martian. The helmet also offers good sound protection. No, Davida helmets are not cheap, but just like an Aero jacket or bespoke suit, quality and longevity come at a price. Treat yourself, and buy one of these lids. Just don't tell your wife what you paid.
TWO DAVIDA PRODUCTS WHICH PERFECTLY COMPLEMENT EACH OTHER
Thank you very much for your excellent service for my second Davida GOV clear visor with elasticated headband , a quality product to go with my black-white check Davida Black Jet Helmet that I had some seven years that remains a high quality helmet that is still perfect. These two Davida products perfectly complement each other and my two motorbikes, a Triumph America cruiser and my Royal Enfield Continental GT Cafe Racer.
DAVIDA BRAND IS WITHOUT QUESTION THE BEST IN THIS MARKET- It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Well given the number of open faced helmets now flooding the market trying to copy the style of the Davida range they should be happy. But, many of the ‘copies’ fall short of matching not only the style, the quality, but more importantly the safety of the Davida helmets, so it is a worrying phenomenon. Just jumping on the bandwagon without the years of proper design and research that Davida have done, mean safety is compromised. You just have to pick up a Davida Jet to realise this is a properly crafted helmet, not massed produced in some Chinese factory, but one created in the UK with safety in mind. Once you have worn one and realised how it protects your hearing with its industry leading sound deadening levels, how comfortable it is after a day’s riding and how it still cleans up to a shine that any custom builder would be happy with after a winters day riding, you realise you really do get what you pay for. My current Jet is the fourth Davida I have had over the years since this very British firm started and I have been impressed with all, but this latest Jet is the best yet and there is nothing on the market in this style that can compete, unless price is your only criteria, So as the saying goes, if you have a cheap head etc. but if you actually value yours the Davida brand is without question the best in this market segment and for most of us the Jet range suits all types of classic riding.
LIKE GETTING A NEW OLD FRIEND. I have been looking to replace my old 91 for some time, and have been going through a series of flip front helmets, I was at the mcn excel show last week and got sized up for the 92, so comfortable, feels just right, should have done this sooner. Looking forward to next trip out. Staff at the show stand get the thumbs up, and delivery was in two days, what's not to like, thank you for the service Davida.
GOOD STUFF..! Not very often I'd bother to write a review but here we have something worth talking about.
The new 92 is perfect for me, superior quality,slim profile, light weight and quiet. I have fitted a peak with a cut down tinted visor. I perch goggles above and use when required. The rear goggle securing stud has saved my goggles on numerous occasions. Thank you Davida
JET HELMET - Looks great a little tight getting it over ears should loosen with wear feels good on looking forward to getting out on bike. thanks
QUALITY PRODUCT AND SERVICE - Have ordered before and will do so in the future. Good products and well packaged. Very happy with service and purchase.JET HELMET - Looks great a little tight getting it over ears should loosen with wear feels good on looking forward to getting out on bike. thanks
AVIATOR GOGGLES REPLACEMENT LENS. - My overall experience with Davida was excellent.The replacement lenses arrived within twenty four hours,superb service.If this is an example,I would not hesitate to deal with Davida again.
FACE MASK - Beautifully made, very comfortable , excellent fit and superb delivery time.
AWESOME KIT AND BRILLIANT SERVICE - I ordered this helmet in a custom finish at the NEC motorcycle show. The guys at Davida made it exactly to the spec that I asked for and it is a perfect fit and very comfortable.
I'm a bit of a stickler when it comes to both great customer service and product quality - this helmet and Davida have absolutely both in spades - thanks guys!
DAVIDA 74 WRS KIT REPLACEMENT PARTS - Very good product overall, having purchased the extra replacement parts allows me now to have all three colors of glasses readily available in the pouch for easy instant switching. The change is done in seconds.
DAVIDA FACE MASK UNIVERSAL MK 2 - I use mine under a Shoei J Cruise. Keeps out the cold and protects your lower face from bugs and other debris. Well made quality item and excellent service from Davida.
BEAUTIFULLY SIMPLE AND SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL. -When I ordered my Davida Jet helmet I chose a JPV1 visor to go with it - I'm glad I did.
This visor is mounted on an elasticated leather strap, which prevents scuffing of the paintwork on the Jet. The design of this visor is extremely efficient in deflecting the breeze away from the upper part of the face, and stays put remarkably well, even at high speeds, sliding up with one hand when you come to a halt.
When it's time to pull the visor down, a simple pull in the centre at the top slides it back into place, the rubber strip inside the metal band locates securely on the rubber edge of your lid (as well as stopping rain from running down inside) and away you go. Levels of vision are without parallel, and cleaning is simple too, just unpop the studs on each side and wash the visor like you're washing you're hands, gently drying it on a towel before popping it back on. Unlike many open face visors and goggles, I haven't experienced any turbulence behind the visor, and you can also easily wear shades or glasses behind it.First class!
DAVIDA SPEEDSTER V3 BLACK & WHITE HELMET - I have just received my Speedster V3 Helmet. I was more than happy with my speedster I've had for 10 years, but after being pulled by police where I live in Spain, I was cautioned as it wasn't road legal and carried a fine of 200 euros and 3 points. Convinced I wouldn't get away with it next time, I decided to go for the new road legal Speedster V3. All I can say is, it is a work of art!...the finish and build quality is second to non, the fit is perfect! Well done you all, fabulous!!
V3 SPEEDSTER - Lovin' my new Cosmic Speedster... I'd buy another at the drop of a hat!
The fit is accurate, the leather is really the best quality, supple and strong, the manufacture is of a very high standard and Davida have the got the style absolutely right. After Davida, there really is no other jacket. I would recommend this jacket to anyone who wants a real quality bike jacket and isn't worried about armour.
(and full marks to Davida for their excellent customer service)...
OUTSTANDING QUALITY - I have bought this leather mask to be used with my Davida classic helmet and I am very pleased with it. It is made of genuine leather and it very easy and comfortable to be used.
When it comes to Davida products one doesn't have to think twice before buying it or taking a decision. It's products are of not equal quality and the price is very reasonable compared with the quality you get.
Highly recommended! Ed Pazikas
BEST OPEN FACE HELMET I EVER HAD! - When it comes to an open face helmet, nothing for me replaces Davida helmets! It is made of light shell, just like in the old school times, its interior is made of a very nice soft leather and satin. Worthless to say that makes one feel like you are wearing a real motorcycle helmet, light, elegant and for any occasion! Well done, Davida! Ed Pazikas
WORTH TO HAVE HELMET - I love motorcycles for many years already and I purchased this Davida British classic helmet for some years ago already. These are handmade according to the old receipts. It's quality is everything you can expect about a handmade product; it's exclusive, well done with high quality leather and components. Due to the fact that this helmet follows the old school ways of doing helmets, it is not certified. I own an old Harley Davidson 1945 and when I drive it, I just love to have my Davida classic helmet that makes me to travel back in time. It is a good combination to have this helmet together with a pair of Aviator Goggles! I highly recommend this helmet for those who likes exclusive products and who loves the golden age of automobiles and motorcycles. At last but not least, this in Made in England! I love it! Ed Pazikas
BEST AVIATOR GOGGLES I am proud to say that I own two pairs of Leon Jeantet Aviator Goggles. These goggles are made exactly under the same receipt as it was hand made in early 1900's or even before (I don't recall the start year of its production). It's quality is superior to any other I have seen and these are Made in France. I recommend these Goggles to any one who loves history, cares of quality and enjoys to bear a pair of goggles that makes your style unique. I highly recommend this item! Ed
Richard Malfait on Feb 03, 2017- 92105 Matt Black, Davida Ninety 2 Helmet
THESE GLOVES EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS!...These Davida gloves really exceeded my expectations in many aspects: these are made of high quality soft leather, it is extremely well done, they are warm, they fantastically fits well both for driving a motorcycle as well as using it occasionally and of course, they are marked with DAVIDA trademark logotype! I got in in black and will consider to have a pair of brown as well in the near future! Well done again, DAVIDA! Your brand is the best! Ed
MY BEAUTIFUL NEW, NINETY TWO ...... arrived today and I'm a chuffed chap. Beautifully made, fantastic quality and a great fit. Like everyone else says, comfy and quiet. Have never bought a lid online before and was a bit nervous about doing so. But the sizing chart was accurate, the customer reviews were right and the helmet is perfect for me. If my ears continue to grow with my years I'll be back for the next size up next decade. Many thanks Davida. I think I love you. x
QUALITY PRODUCT.......Just received my Ninety Two today having seen it at the NEC show. The quality is even better than I remember when I ordered it. The fit and finish is sublime. First open face helmet and I can't wait to wear it. Thanks Davida and thank goodness there are still some great British companies out there.
DAVIDA GOGGLES AND PRODUCTS ARE JUST GREAT! I have owned Davida helmets for quite a number of years and used the traditional aviator goggles that are just fantastic! Recently I decided to purchase these Davida WRS goggles/sun glasses and I got amazed! It is beautiful, light, easy to handle, good option in spare parts and lovely to wear. Well done Davida! Your products are just the best!
I KID YOU NOT, THESE LIDS ARE LUSH - I’ve had a few crash helmets over the last 40 odd years. From Stadium and Centurion in the early days through the Griffin Clubman (CD no less!) era, followed by the Bell Star and then on to lids from Shoei, Schuberth/BMW and AGV, all good in their own ways, but none have really come close to the quality and comfort of my latest helmet, the beautiful Davida Jet.The snug fit makes the Jet not only quiet, but also resistant to lifting at speed, a common problem with open face lids. Davida helmets are lined with the finest quality tailored leather and painted to an extremely high standard. I kid you not, these lids are lush. When I got my Jet in mid-September I envisaged wearing it on the odd sunny weekend; and using the AGV most of the time. But all that has changed, and I think the pleasure in wearing such a comfortable and well-crafted crash helmet may have changed the way I ride, and I now wear it all the time.
AWESOME - Feel like the Lone Ranger. Mysterious, But it also goes the job perfectly. Bang On !
DAVIDA FACE MASK UNIVERSAL MK 2 OR NO I AM NOT HANIBLE LECTOR - The face mask is very well constructed and is a superb fit and offer good protection from the elements..... I have been using mine on a daily commute it also fits perfectly under my Biltwell Bubble visor.
Davida 74 WRS Kit Replacement Parts
EXCELLENT KIT - Great gear, after the head band broke I was pleased to discover all replacement parts are available at a reasonable price. So I bought some cool red lenses too.
JET HELMET - Love the helmet.it has style,looks fab. Fits very comfortable.
AVIATOR RETRO PILOT T2 OPTICAL GOGGLES - BROWN LEATHER - Awesome! Top features from nowadays technologies, on top of the genuine and legendary taste. If you like it, get it, you deserve it.
ITALIAN QUALITY AND STYLE - As a motorcycle racer back in the 60s I wore Italian made goggles. Recently I decided to start wearing an open faced helmet and looked for goggles to enhance the retro look. When I investigated. there didn't appear to be any goggles that captured the quality and style of the goggles I wore back then. That is until I came across these on the Davida site. The quality is outstanding with a number of additional safety features my original Italian goggles didn't have. Such as the scratch-resistant polycarbonate lenses, anti mist aerators and adjustable nonslip helmet band. All in this is a quality product well worth investing in.
Absolutely love the design and the fit is superb. Probably the best open-face helmet I have tried. It is a classic old school design. So, in my opinion Old's Cool!
I decided on the Davida helmet after looking at several other makes, some cheaper and some more expensive. However, the fit just felt 'right' and I knew instantly this was the helmet for me.
Originally, I ordered the Black and White check design but after contacting Davida direct by e-mail I was pleasantly surprised to find the guy's there were more than happy to accommodate my change of design (even throwing in a sticker pack with the helmet - thanks once again, Joe!)
I also purchased a pair of Aviator Retro Pilot goggles and they look perfect with the helmet.
So, all in all I am extremely happy with my purchases and the excellent level of customer care from Davida (incidentally, I was told to expect a wait of about 4-6 weeks for the helmet. I received it within 2 weeks after ordering on Christmas Eve!)Thanks guys.
Clive. SIMPLY THE BEST....The title says it all really....have used a Davida jet for the last 7 years...even raced in it....supreme comfort, superb finish.....no wind noise and used in conjunction with the visor, no lift at speed....
An outstanding helmet......
Davida seem a fabulous company to deal with and customer service really is top notch!!
So thank you very much and a merry Christmas to you all. Happy new year also. :grin::grin::grin::thumbsup:
BEING CLASSIC - Just wanted to bring back the look of the "good ole days" with this helmet. Perfect with the right jacket and goggles when on my "cafe" 71 Kawasaki or 72 Yamaha. Sorry....no Brit bike...yet! The helmet is perfect. Craftsmanship amazing, including a beautiful paint finish.
Jason C. on Dec 21, 2016 - Aviator Retro Special Goggle - Black Foam Rubber
BEST GOGGLES EVER- I brought these to go with my Davida helmet , as my last ones kept falling down , you don't know you have these on, fit like a dream very happy with them
MY GO-TO OPEN FACE HELMET- As boss of the Bike Shed Motorcycle Club in London I have to be careful what I say about any product. My views have to be authentic and I can't favour brands because we work with them, and I do know the Davida team well, but I can honestly say that after my first '92 and my original Speedster, the new Speedster V3 is the helmet I've been waiting for, Literally. The old Speedster was low profile, well shaped and comfy from day one, but it wasn't DOT or ECE approved, and while I liked the '92 it was less plush and less comfy. The new Speedster V3 is still as comfy, low profile AND it's road legal. The finish is tough, and the fittings, trim and leather liner are faultless and look to be just as tough as my other Davidas, and after a day in Spain on the new Bobber my head was as comfy as it would have been wearing my old well-worn lid. You can now choose different internals, so I went for Oxblood Red, which looks wicked against the silver metal flake paint. If you want an open face helmet, just buy one of these and you won't be disappointed. They are worth every star of my 5-star rating.
HELMET- Very nice helmet. The chinstrap is not easy to use at the beginning, but once you have understood.
LONG SERVICE MEDAL - This lid has been with me over 20 years, still comfy,still quiet, the leather is still in good condition and the strap hasn't frayed.Don't go anywhere else, these things really are fantastic.
CUSTOMISED WHEELS AND WAVES NINETY 2 - I ordered this helmet at the NEC Motorcycle show in Birmingham, the girls were more than helpful with my order. Helmet arrived yesterday, the quality and finish is outstanding. Everything was customised to my preference and exceeded my expectations. Will definitely be dealing with Davida in the future and will recommend their helmets. Many thanks! Alan.
MCN SENIOR ROAD TESTER & TT RACER Time Tested: seven years/10,000 miles. Quality 5/5 Value 5/5
What’s Good: I don’t often wear an open-face lid, but each time I do I’m surprised by how comfortable and quiet they are. This Davida is so good that I quite often ride without earplugs when wearing it. The comfort is incredible, too, and I’ve spent long days in the saddle while wearing it without any complaints. I even spent seven hours in it on a trip from York to Newquay and was really impressed, and at the end of the journey I wasn’t desperate to remove it. I’ve owned the lid for around seven years and there’s no sign of wear and tear, it still looks brand new, which is very impressive. When the time comes to replace this lid, which will be soon owing to its age, I’ll certainly be opting for another Davida. What’s not Good : I honestly can’t think of any. I like the comfort, the style and the quality, and for just under £300 it’s value for money, too. The hardest part is deciding which design to choose next at the options are almost endless.
FANTASTIC GOGGLES - AND COOL TOO!I bought a Jet helmet and a pair of these Aviator Retro goggles last year at the NEC show and have ridden with them through this year. Both are fantastically comfortable to wear but the goggles surprised me. Besides having a wide field of vision, with the comfort, it often felt like I hadn't got any goggles on! Mine have the clear lens, and on sunny days, the goggles look just as cool when up on the helmet and wearing the WRS sunglasses.. I do like the more modern look of the goggles and have to blame Henry Cole as I saw these on one of his shows and fancied a pair ever since.. Highly recommended.
DAVIDA JET CREAM & BROWN - I ordered this helmet at NEC motorcycle Live 2016
The Davida ladies on the stand really know their stuff when it comes to making sure the helmet fits for each individual. The Jet is beautifully made, very comfortable and oh so quiet. I've owned many premium open face helmets but the Davida Jet tops the lot.
Wonderful, another extremely pleased customer. Thank you
GREAT HELMET! - I bought this helmet after a friend of mine was very pleased about it. First thing i noticed was the very good protection from windnoise. Next to that there is the very comfortable lining and padding on the inside of the helmet. Even after 2 years of intensive use, i don't think there is any quality loss on the helmet. Perhaps not the most cheapest helmet on the jethelm-market, probably the best on looks, comfort and protection.
PILOT T1 GOGGLES - I purchased these goggles in the spring to go with my speedster helmet. I found them to be so comfortable with excellent all round vision as well as looking super cool! I wish I had brought these years ago I would not have wasted so much money on inferior goggles. Well done Davida a great addition.
WEATHERING THE AFRICAN SUN - I bought my jacket 2 years ago. A tight fit at first, I was told it would mould to my body. It did and it's become even more supple over time. As it's weathered under the African sun, it's taken on a tinge of retro fade - really looks cool. I've not found a jacket that comes close it it in style and comfort. Did have a stud that worked its way loose, but well worth the investment.
MY 1996 DAVIDA JET HELMET - I bought my first Harley Davidson and my first Davida helmet in March 1996. The Davida quality and particularly, the leather lining appealed to me. I wear the helmet most of the time with a snap on peak in the summer time and a flip up visor during the winter time. The helmet and lining is still perfect and has taken on a lovely patina. I'm very interested in the beautiful Davida Speedster V3 and would love to get one. Quality is remembered long after price is forgotten!
GREAT GOGGLES ! - I bought these for my husband and he is very very happy with them very light and easy to wear.
SUPERB BUILD QUALITY - JUST FEELS 'RIGHT - 'It's taken me 2 years to finally order a helmet after weighing up whether to stick with a full face or go to an open face one and then which manufacturer to buy from. Naturally, I was keen to buy British if possible but I still checked out all the options. I thought the Davida lids looked good and felt just 'right.' I tried them again at Motorcycle Live this year and was impressed but when the actual product turned up all fresh and new in its box I was still amazed. It just oozes quality and the smell of the leather lining is just superb. I went for the visor studs and have a smoked Paulson bubble peak which for me is a must in sunny days...let's just hope we have some, now roll on summer 2017!
DAVIDA 92 - Received my custom painted Davida 92 today, superb delivery service, arrived when promised. I ordered the helmet at motorcycle live and decided to have it painted to my preference. This is a fantastic helmet, the feeling of quality and 'rightness' is hard to define. As well as beautiful it is highly functional and comfortable. This is one of those items that's just nice to own and gives you that 'feel good' factor to hold and wear. Top marks Davida.
MY DAVIDA JET - A 5 STAR HELMET! -I've had my Jet helmet for just over a year, and love it to bits. Very comfortable and very quiet, especially at speed, coupled with the Davida Aviator goggles. Old school looks, modern technology, superior protection in a classic open face helmet. Highly recommended!
MY NEW DAVIDA GLOVES.- A product so good that you know you need to buy another pair just for best!
AWESOME - I have spent 2 years deciding on which open faced helmet to purchase. Really pleased that the Speedster V3 meets all safety standards. Davida team provided excellent support to ensure I had the right size & fit. Delivery on time and very well packaged. Very pleased.
LONG DISTANCE COMFORT - Been riding for 35 years now and I`ve always worn open face helmets. I`ve had my Davida for about 2 years and it is a revelation. Very low noise, warm when it`s cold, cool when it`s hot. After wearing it for 8 hours on a trip the length of England recently I can honestly say it`s the most comfortable helmet I`ve ever had.
I have just got a 92 helmet
what a great fit
what a great look
what a cold day
roll on the summer
GREAT LOOKS AND QUALITY - This is my second Davida visor - a necessary purchase after I was caught out in the dark last week with my WRP chrome smoke rainbow. Hopefully Santa will now notice that I'm short of the matching helmet!
