Riding Gear Type: Davida Three Quarter Open Face Helmet - Speedster V3
Details About This Helmet: Not all three-quarter helmets (3/4) are equal; some are clunky and oddly shaped, others quite uncomfortable, and some are just plain poor quality; therefore, we present the Davida Speedster V3, the nicest open face 3/4 helmet currently on the market. This three-quarter helmet blends 1970's classic design with modern safety technology and elegant finishing touches. Designed and hand made in England, the Speedster V3 uses advanced 'orbital lamination' manufacturing techniques for the fiberglass (GRP composite) helmet shells, which are then painted in a wide variety of colors (and graphics), then finished off with an elegant leather liner. The liners are removable for cleaning, replacement, or customizing as half sizing kits are available to adjust the helmets for a perfect interior fit. Classic but straightforward double D rings to secure the Speedster V3 in place on your head, and a leather goggle-strap keeps goggles in place. Finally, the Davida Speedster V3 has five snap studs (as compared to 3 typically found on most 3/4 helmets) on the outer perimeter of the helmet to be used with their unique "Punk" full face shield or any snap style visor.
Among the choices of 3/4 open face helmets out there, the Davida Speedster V3 has the smallest exterior profile shape and snug fit, which prevents lift at speed. Together the design of both the shell & interior delivers the ergonomics required to ensure the helmet width around the ears is sufficiently narrower than at the temples. The helmets really do "fit like a glove," as it does take a bit of flexing of the helmet shell to get them on and off. However, once on, you truly feel that your head is in the helmet, rather than there is a helmet on your head. We find for the American sizing standards; the Davida helmets run on the small size. Consider ordering up one size from what you may typically wear. The Speedster v3 has passed the highest quality control required by the latest ECER22-05, and DOT FMVS No 281 Safety Standard Certification & is ACU Gold Approved for Racing.

We highly recommend measuring the circumference of your head in centimeters (CM) to get the most accurate fit for a helmet rather than relying on the size label (S, M, L, XL, etc.). Every brand of helmet fits differently (like shoes), so measure your head twice to make sure you order the correct size!!! We want you to select the correct helmet on the first try. Any helmets that need to be exchanged for a re-sized will be subject to a re-sizing fee. The customer is responsible for return shipping on a helmet for re-sizing. Please see our return policy for more information.
