Retro fit leather liner kit options for one of the market’s “design originals”
British helmet manufacturer Davida UK has new replacement leather liner kits for their internationally approved and award-winning road legal ‘Speedster’ V3 open face helmet.
The’ Speedster’ V3 is an update of an original ‘Speedster’ that has been one of the world’s top-selling retro style helmet designs for nearly three decades. Launched at INTERMOT last year and then at the New York IMS in January this year, the V3 ‘Speedster’ is dual certified to ECER22-05 and DOT FMVSS No 218.
The V3 ‘Speedster’ is equipped with all the features of the original – features such as the same low profile shell shape, but now replacement kits for the improved removable and cleanable leather liner are available in 5 different colours (black, brown, ZNut brown, ROX blood red and white) and in black (brown and ZNut brown) for the ‘Ninety 2’ helmet.
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 ‘Speedster V3. We have greatly advanced the way we manufacture GRP composite helmet shells in order to retain the same low profile shape, so that the V3 now satisfies the demands of the highest modern ECE R22-05 and DOT safety standards.” The ‘Speedster’ V3 has three shell sizes that allow Davida dealers to offer their customers six helmet sizes from XS (54) to XXL (61). The traditional low profile GRP composite shell features a polystyrene shock absorption layer (EPS) and optional studs for fitting visors and peaks.
Fiddaman says that the new version “fulfils our long held ambition of being able to offer a road legal version of the ‘Speedster’ – an iconic a jet style helmet with a 27-year heritage that is highly evocative of the 1970s. The V3 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.”
