Time Tested: seven years/10,000 miles
What’s Good: I don’t often wear an open-face lid, but each time I do I’m surprised by how comfortable and quiet they are. This Davida is so good that I quite often ride without earplugs when wearing it. The comfort is incredible, too, and I’ve spent long days in the saddle while wearing it without any complaints. I even spent seven hours in it on a trip from York to Newquay and was really impressed, and at the end of the journey I wasn’t desperate to remove it. I’ve owned the lid for around seven years and there’s no sign of wear and tear, it still looks brand new, which is very impressive. When the time comes to replace this lid, which will be soon owing to its age, I’ll certainly be opting for another Davida
What’s not: I honestly can’t think of any. I like the comfort, the style and the quality, and for just under £300 it’s value for money, too. The hardest part is deciding which design to choose next at the options are almost endless.
