Regualr readers will know I like a Davida helmet. And I was a big fan of their “Cosmic Candy” range… which I thought would set off a 70’s style skelly to a tee… Well, now you’ve got even more choice from the Birkinhead helmet artisans. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls… I present metalflake!
I can do no better than quote from their press release… “The attention to detail, the depth of light and colour: the visual effect of the results is stunning. Davida helmets feel wonderfully luxurious and protective given their snug fitting and leather-lined construction and are well proven for all types of riding adventures.”
Pricewise, they’re not the cheapest helmets on the market, but quality never is is, is it? And the one thing you don’t want to be scrimping on is a bash hat. Davida Jet & Ninety2 RRP £378. Davida Speedster RRP £365 + VAT
With their international reputation for integrating the finest features of traditional open face helmets into modern safety products, all Davida’s supremely comfortable range of helmets are now available in more than 100 different colour ways. See the website for full details.
What’s better than candy? Cosmic Candy of course… and that’s the name of the range of helmets from British manufacturer Davida. Colourways that have been inspired by the ‘candy apple’ paint effect popularised within the American Hot Rod, Chopper, and then the UK Scootering scene. They’d look great with any classic Lammie… but particularly if you’ve got a ’70’s style skelly!The new Cosmic Candy range is launched in six colours, Cosmic Candy Silver-150, Cosmic Candy Red-151, Cosmic Candy Blue-155, Cosmic Candy Yellow-153, Cosmic Candy Green-154 & Cosmic Candy Burgundy -152
All Davida helmets are available in any one of the 100 colourways in their distinctive range and traditional colours. Inspired by racers and street cultures of the past, from burning flame of the road racers to the checks, national flags and pinstripes of street culture, each design is individually created by hand using time-honoured techniques and lacquered to a high quality finish. They also offer a bespoke service to create your own colourway.
The new Cosmic Candy range of colourways are available on any Davida helmet model. RRP UK is £265.00 for the Davida Jet and Ninety2. Davida Speedster & Classic helmets RRP UK £220.83 ex VAT.Check out their website for more info, including the range of products and distributors and dealers worldwide..

In my last post about helmets, I somehow neglected to mention Davida, as one of my readers, biker chappie and blogger The Ham & Eggs was quick to point out. And although I still think of Davida as a relative newcomer to the helmet market, they have been making quality, stylish helmets in the UK for over 30 years. They also are made to satisfy some of the Worlds strictest safety standards, which is nice. Based in the Wirral, England Davida still hand build their helmets, using the best quality material available. Check out their website here.
Their now iconic Davida Jet isEuropean Standard ECE R22-05 certified, and ACE Gold Approved for racing. It comes in a wide range of styles (below are some of my favourites), and can even be tailored to match the paintwork of your scooter. Custom designs can also be accommodated, and their design team will discuss the appropriateness of your design for a helmet.
