Davida will be releasing a new road-legal version of their Speedster helmet at INTERMOT in Cologne, 5-9th October 2016.
Dual marked with ECER22-05 and DOT FMVSS No. 218, the new Speedster v3 retains all the features of their original Speedster helmet, with the same low profile shell shape and an improved traditional leather lined interior, which can now be removed for cleaning or replacement. Replacement leather liners are available in black, brown or nut brown colors.
Davida MD David Fiddaman says: “The technical team at Davida UK has put all of its 40 years of manufacturing experience into our latest road-legal helmet, the Speedster v3. So we are very excited to be revealing this new product at INTERMOT 2016 in Cologne, a show and a city that both have had great significance for our development as a company since the early 1980s.”
Fiddaman explained: “We have greatly advanced the way we manufacture GRP composite helmet shells in order to retain the same low profile shape, so that the Speedster v3 now satisfies the demands of the highest modern ECE R22-05 and DOT safety standards.”
The Speedster v3 features three shell sizes that allow six helmet sizes from XS (54) to XXL (61), traditional low profile GRP composite shell, polystyrene shock absorption liner, removable and replaceable, full leather lined interior and optional studs for fitting visors and peaks.
Fiddaman says that the new version “fulfils our long-held ambition to produce a road-legal version of the Speedster, a jet-style helmet with a 26-year heritage that is highly evocative of the 1970s, and which is certified for road use in the majority of countries covered by the Davida global dealer network.”
Founded in 1975, Davida UK is an ISO 9001 accredited company that is the sole manufacturer of certified helmets in the UK. Every single Davida helmet is still hand-made at their factory near Liverpool, England, “using time-honored manufacturing techniques and craftsmanship.”
