Caberg Droid - Matt Black
Customer Product Reviews
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.
