Helmet review: Davida Jet

Marc Abbott, 15 February 2012 11:59

Davida Jet helmet, £235Miles covered/time: 9100/one year, nine months What’s good: So often in the course of writing these reviews our opinions and findings are tempered by a caveat along the lines of: “thankfully, I’ve not crashed in this so can’t vouch for how it would perform, but…” I’m glad (in a way) on this occasion to say that there’s ...

Davida Jet

Marc Abbott, 05 December 2011 14:58

Davida Jet helmet, £235Miles covered/time: 9000/One year, eight months 
 What’s good? Since I started wearing this helmet my enjoyment of motorcycling has doubled. The essence of riding, for me, is about attachment to your surroundings – the sights, sounds and especially smells – and cocooning ones head in a full-face helmet (regardless of the very clear and well-proven safety ...

Goggle review: Aviator Retro Pilot T2

Marc Abbott, 03 June 2010 16:11

Aviator Retro Pilot T2 goggles, £95 (dark lenses extra £25)Miles covered/time: 900/two months   What’s good? They look fantastic, especially with the optional dark lenses fitted. Provided you remember to pull them on when setting off (many’s the time I’ve had to suddenly go no-handed on the dual carriageway when I realise I’m crying) they’re terribly comfortable once on the move, ...

Helmet review: Davida Jet helmet

Marc Abbott, 03 June 2010 16:07

Davida Jet helmet, £235  Miles covered/time: 900/two months What’s good? Off-white is the new black. I have never seen, let alone owned, a helmet that looked quite this cool straight out of the box. It’s also incredibly quiet – really quite frighteningly so. In fact, I’ve not once worn earplugs while I’ve worn this lid. I have to wear a ...

Helmet review: Shoei X-Spirit II

Marc Abbott, 27 January 2010 16:15

Shoei X-Spirit II, £480Miles covered/time: Five months/2500 milesWhat’s good? The new version of Shoei’s flagship model is thankfully just as comfortable as the previous model, and that the vents work much better. Save cash on motorcycle helmets This is especially true of the chin vent, which, now massively chunkier, is much easier to use with your gloves on, whether big ...
