Customer Product Reviews
Ideal summer cruiser
Surprising quality for the price. Really well-made lid that feels great and looks good. Very stable too up to motorway speeds. I usually take an XL helmet size but with this I needed L to get a snug fit. (As usual, exchange process with SBS was fast and hassle-free).
The Real Deal
This helmet has it all looks charm and comfort. Helmet looks and feels great on. Nice and light on your head, can be be a bit tight when worn first but starts to mould nice after few rides. Ear protection are big bonus. Lots of comments on helmet. Safe riding out there.
Comfortable helmet with great looks and features
If you are looking for an open face helmet, then this one is to be recommended. Just on looks alone, it beats most others hands down, but combine that with the comfort, the fit, the micrometric strap release and the removable liners, and you've got a quality helmet. Initially, I thought it looked a little bulky on, but I very quickly got used to it, and changed my mind. I'm a big fan of "pilot style" helmets as I don't feel comfortable in full face helmets. The flip down visor works well, has a light tint and is easy to deploy while wearing gloves. The detachable visor is easy to fit - it locks in place with the two sliding catches at the sides, but is still easy to remove again if desired. I don't have a lot of experience with helmets, but I usually take a Large. With this product however, I needed a Medium. Having said that, their size guide is absolutely spot on. The price point was reasonable too, even without the 25% off, so it represents great value for money.
Will recommend +
Very comfortable helmet, very nice to have the half helmet feel rather than having your cheeks and neck squashed, would recommend using a neck gaiter or mask though. Also the size is quite large, I measured to be an XL but the Large fitted better. The only downside I have found to date is the visor can be awkward to operate when using thicker gloves.
Looks great and comfortable
Helmet arrived on time and well packaged. Helmet looks great and us very comfortable. I have a Harley and did not want to pay Harley prices for a helmet that will be used only on sunny, dry days! Very happy with purchase which looks really cool!
This helmet is an extremely comfortable and cool looking bit of gear. The matt black exterior is smooth and matches well with the silver details. The removable and machine washable liner means it'll still be box fresh after many journeys, and the integrated visor completes the look of a fine lid. The first one sent was a little too big, but there was no problem exchanging for a smaller size with the Sportsbikeshop returns procedure. Very happy biker.
Head and shoulders above the rest
My second Padova. Much improved liner than the last one (and it smells better too). Built in drop down visor will be useful when the sun shines. (Stares wistfully into the distance). Goes well with my Victory Vision: style and function. Not quite the holy grail but 'It's very nice'.
