Caberg Droid - Matt Black
Customer Product Reviews
Great features but
Have only worn the helmet a couple of times so far and love the different look and all the features that come as standard including the excellent Pinlock! I do have a slight concern when closing the helmet as I have to slam it shut and still end up with one hand holding the back whilst the other hand then grabs the chin guard to pull down and get it to lock on the right hand side!! Thought it might be sizing as ordered medium (58) but that was too small so exchanged for large which appears to fit much better whilst still being tight as it should be. I'm hoping over time it wears in, but I am concerned with the locking mechanism at the moment
I love this!
Brilliant quality, feels snug but really comfortable. The release for the front flip up is really easy to use, and the mechanism feels sturdy and clicks into place nicely. Comes with a pinlock insert which is really helpful. And dead easy to fasten in. I've put a comm system in mine and there is a perfect place for the earpieces to sit so they can't be felt but it sounds super clear. Sun visor is really easy to flip down. Looks COOL! Would recommend to anyone. I love it.
Good value for money lid
Looks like a really smart helmet. Comes with a Pinlock insert to help with fogging as well. The flip front works well and gives a good reassuring click as it goes into place. Airflow is reasonably good with the vents open, and it's pretty good at eliminating wind noise as well. All the padding comes out easily for cleaning, and is easy to put back in, too. Only couple of negatives are that the sun visor is a little short, and could do with being just a little longer, and the helmet is difficult to put on in full face setting.
This is the droid you're looking for !!
This is my 3rd caberg modular helmet and they just keep on getting better I got a medium and the fit is perfect padding inside is great nicely finished , visibility is excellent and with pinlock in the box and drop-down sun visor well worth the money the flip up has a nice click when shut action is smooth when opening and closing ventilation is ok not great but not the worst the styling is great though and have had a few people asking what helmet it is all in all this is a well made,well featured helmet and the price was good to with £40 off .
The droid I have been looking for
I bought the Caberg Droid as a replacement for my ageing Caberg Duke and have not been disappointed. The helmet fits like a glove and looks fantastic! I feel like a Star Wars TIE fighter pilot, especially when I get a nice bit if induction noise going on my bike! The ventilation is good, although a little noisy at speed. I would say a little louder than the Caberg Duke, but certainly not as bad as some flip front lids I have owned. During the recent heatwave I have appreciated the air flow. The build quality is great and to be expected from Caberg. A SHARP rating of 4 puts it 1 below the Duke, however it feels more solid to me which is probably due to it being box fresh. The price certainly is a bonus for a well manufactured, stylish helmet. I am considering purchasing a dark smoke visor to compliment the aggressive styling. Having said that the sun visor is more than adequate for practical reasons, I just want to transition further to the 'dark side' on an aesthetic front. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase.
Comfortable flip up
Comfortable helmet with anti fog insert provided. Flip up mechanism easy to operate with a push of a button even with thick gloves on, intercom fitting a doddle with cut outs for speakers..rode 45 miles in wet weather and no leaks from visor seals....in all a decent helmet for the price....another good service from SBS.
First flip up
This is my first flip up but not my first Caberg a brand i like using. The Droid styling appealed to me to replace my current Shark. Overall it is a nice helmet and with 10% off a reasonable price. Overall finish is very good as I would expect from Caberg with a plush interior. I rider behind a fairing but being tall still get some buffeting of the helmet so earplugs are still required to keep the noise down. Rain is also still pushed down behind the visor but the far less than it used to be with special lip to top of visor and v shaped seal around opening. What lets it down a little for me and I would have gone for 4.5 stars is the built in sun visor is slightly awkward to operate than earlier models. The sun visor also does not fully retract leaving about a centimetre sticking out at the top of the visor which is distracting. They did this on a previous model which I sent back as I thought it was a defect but appear to be the norm. What doesn't get noticed though is the Pinlock antimist screen. It doesn't look that big but you cannot see the edges of it hen fitted which you can usually with helmets.With the front of the helmet brought down there is some pressure on the cheeks. Finally although not really an issue, it is not clear what the open and closed positions are for the vents especial the front ones. The opening front is good though especially when I realised I didn't need to take my glasses off to put the helmet on. You do have to lift the front though to put the helmet on glasses or not.
Hush quiet helmet.
Well what a great fitting helmet ,wanted a quiet helmet as my other helmets open face very noisy .The Droid fits the bill for winter riding ,comfy fit and oh so quiet in use. The flip up front also a great plus ,as is the pinlock visor. All full-face helmets should come with a pinlock visor in my opinion.
Caberg DROID Matt Black - Top Choice
Excellent timing on delivery. The helmet is better than expected. I made a change from the Caberg KONDA wich was my best companion for 6 years, and decided to stay with the brand. The DROID has great design, really comfortable interior, with "noise reduction" characteristics that add even more comfort during voyage. Closed it's just water and wind proof. The pinlock feature is truly a must-have nowadays. For me, a great buy.
Cooler helmet ever
This helmet is doing just great, really good from top to bottom. Inside so comfortable and easy to take a part and put it together. All the inner part are made to add headphone + mic. Outside it's just cool. No wind or water coming through it's just brilliant and engineering perfection. I'm happy with this purchase and I will recommend to buy it.
Quality and value from Italy
My first flip front. So impressed with the design and finish. Very comfortable and the flip action is easy to use. The optics of the visor and shades are excellent. If you're interested in a flip but never owned one.......just do it! You won't regret it.
