Bought one based on cost, appearance and for hot weather comfort. The
quality surpassed my expectations and most likely saved my life. The shell
cracked but my noggin didn't.

I bought the helmet for comfort and price. 3X helmets are hard to find. But on December 5, 2014, I was exiting 1-75 South of Tampa to an interstate wayside, the police report said I hit gravel which I did not see at all. I slid about 30 MPH broke my ribs, pelvis and collar bone on the right side and had considerable road rash. The helmet was damaged greatly from the crash, but it clearly saved my life and I have no head, brain or facial injuries. I am currently ordering another helmet from the great folks at Daytona Helmets. You can buy with confidence!!!
You guys rock! I got my helmet quick but it was too big. So I called and the woman that answered the phone was great! I could tell right away that you guys care about good customer service. The quality of the helmet was impressive as well. I have found the helmet that I will always want to wear. You can count on a re-order every 5 years or so. I will be sure to do as I was told by your customer service woman ("tell everyone how much I like the helmet). She was very personable and answered every question I had. I wish I had gotten her name. Okay then, carry on!!! Thank you, Cath
I have been searching for the perfect helmet so a year
I've ordered from a handful of stores and returned each
one. Today, as I tried on my new 3/4 metal flake helmet, I have to say, its by
far the best fitting and coolest helmet yet!!! Thank you so much..I seriously
can't wait to buy one in each color now!! Thought y'all like to know! :P
Dear Daytona Helmet,
I am writing today to say Thank You! Your helmet (3/4 Face) undoubtedly saved my
life. On June 2011, I was in heavy traffic in Nashville, TN, when the car in
front of me stopped short. I hit my brakes too hard and hit the pavement of
I-40 going somewhere around 60. I cracked three ribs, snapped my collar bone, suffered roadrash and one concussion. My helmet cracked just above the
temporal line of my head. Without a doubt I would not be alive if your product
was not every bit as good as you claim it to be.
Again, my most
A few days ago I was riding through a very dangerous stretch of road called the "Kern Canyon Road" in Central California. I was on my 1999 Suzuki Katana 750F while wearing one of your Daytona Crossovers. It was a perfect day for a ride, there wasn't a cloud in the sky. I was coming hot into a turn, leaned over far as possible, knee dragging along the pavement when suddenly around a blind curve a car came the opposite direction. The car was going too fast to stay in his lane and veered into my own. I went wide and lowsided, me and my bike both tumbled a good 40-50ft down a rocky cliffside, finally coming to a rest at the bottom. I would like to personally thank everyone at the company for putting out such a fine product, my helmet is totalled, my bike is totalled, everything is destroyed. But, although it was totaled, your helmet saved my life. I hit
forehead-first into a sharp piece of granite near the bottom, the helmet not only absorbed the impact, but it stayed in tact. In fact, I now have it up on my desk in a display box showing the damage I survived. I made it out with a dislocated shoulder, but I didn't even have a headache afterwards... From the bottom of my heart, thank you all, I would not be here writing this email today if it weren't for your product... Below is a picture of the helmet itself after the wreck: http://filesmelt.com/dl/Picture_019_copy.png
Thank you . . . . Ken

Thank you and Annette for replacing my inside shield. I

I just wanted to let you guys know that your helmet saved
my life yesterday. I was t-boned by a pickup truck and the bike was destroyed,
but my only injuries were scrapes bruises and a cut over my eye from my
glasses. The helmet has white paint on it from the truck, and I can not thank
you enough for making a quality helmet.
I'd like to begin by saying that this helmet saved my life. To be honest, when
I purchased the half helmet I never thought it would provide as much protection
as it did. Although it was approved by the DOT, I didn't really have a lot of
confidence in its size. Well, I'm a living testimony to the quality of this
helmet. I sustained a direct impact to the right side of my head and was
knocked unconscious. After looking at the helmet, the ER doctor stated that the
helmet made the difference between a visit to the ER or the OR. I'd like to
take the time to thank you for such a quality product, and feel free to contact
me or any of my statements for marketing. My friends and family also thank you.
I also praise God for His protection.
Respectfully and with Gratitude,
Bought bunch of stuff from you guys, including a Daytona helmet. Got in an accident in Aug 2010 when someone cut dead in front of me. No choice but to hit them broad side. I was told my helmet had a hole, and though I was out a brief time, not even a headache or scratch. That helmet saved my life, I'm sure. 1/2 helmet with the eagle on it's side. Thank YOU for making a WONDERFUL product.

Just wanted to let you know that I had a bike/deer accident the other day and my Cross Bones Helmet saved my head very well. So I will definitely purchase another one. Love your helmets . Thanks for saving my head.

On January 11th, I was traveling at 50 mph and was rear ended by a car doing 85+. My head bounced off the road twice. My Daytona Eclipse stayed on and didn't break. Much to the surprise of the EMS personnel who responded, I'm not dead. Thank you for a quality product at a good price. I believe it saved my life. I ordered new ones for my wife and I, last night. If you'd like, I can send you pics of the helmet and crash. . . . Francis D. Young Jr.

My Wife and I seen you at the Galveston bike rally. I wanted a couple helmets and the booth woudnt sell me the display. They could have sold two helmets right at the end of the rally. So i can hardly wait to get these. They are the best fitting open face helmets Ive put on yet. Thanks to all at daytona. I will send more sells your way. Ride on, Cory
"Your helmets look wicked. Already talked a buddy into buying one, and im sure there will be more to come when we get ours and people see them. Great prices also ,thanks alot. " . . . . Wade
Great Buying Experience. Ordered on Sunday night and was sitting on my door step Thursday. The helmet is exactly what was shown when purchased and fits great. Nothing bad to say about this whole buying experience. Cant wait to ride!
I recently purchased a German Helmet from ya'll. I was not only satisfied with the helmet but extremely happy with the quick shipping. I will for sure buy another helmet from ya'll!!
Great customer service! Been a very long time since I've had such a great experience with a purchase. I will definitely recommend Daytona Helmets to all my friends. Thanks again!
I purchased the carbon fiber skull cap recieved it in a timley manner and am very pleased when I hit 60-70 mph it dosent start to lift off my head and I still get the mushroom look a little but being a Marine I have to were DOT approved and this is the best bet.
Excellent product! Just received my XL Gloss Black 3/4 DOT Cruiser helmet last night. Fits great right out of the box. You guys aren't kidding, this is an awesome looking, low profile lid. Old Skool look without any resemblance to Marvin The Martian. Well done!
I ordered a half helmet I was hesitant about it. but to my surprise when i got it actually fit and looked good. if I have to wear a helmet this is the one to wear. very low and not bulky NO Mushroom. thank you Sheryl. you guys are un matched.
Love my helmet! Packed beautifully and shipped quickly. Great price. Perfect fit. Highly recommended!
I called the office Monday July 18th 2011. I needed a screw and hardware for the Eclipse full face helmet. After being informed that the Eclipse is discountinued, the office found a screw w/ hardware on a desk.I just received them in the mail today, 2 days later. I want to thank you and give you my consumer comittment to stay w/ your products. Customer Service today is usually done in some 3rd world country where communication is void. Its great to have people who give a s*&^%. Mardo South Troy NY
I purchased one of your helmets and it came in the mail today. I took it on its
first ride and really enjoyed it. The fit and the comfort of the helmet and
straps are great! I was wondering if there was anyway you could send me a decal
I could throw on my tool box at work. Thanks again.
Wow,the helmet is even better than expected and your sizing chart is right on. Very please!!! Rejean
Just wanted to send a quick note to let you know I am a big fan of Daytona Helmets (this one make five). I thought I would add the Smokey to my collection. I have never had a novelty helmet before and thought I would give it a try. I just received it and it is the most comfortable helmet I've ever had on my head. I'm really impressed. Now I see why everyone has novelty helmets. It's too bad I can't use it on the road:)
Long time fan, first time caller . . . .
So I called UPS and somehow they got it from Kentucky to Seattle in like three hours so they have guaranteed the delivery today. I want you to know that I have never had customer service be on such the ball and do such a top shelf job for anything I have purchased online before. I would be privileged to recommend your company for sales to all those in which I ride with. I thank you for your efforts and it is something truly appreciated. Have a great day!
Sean J Stephens
Thank you for your prompt attention. I returned a helmet that had fallen apart and I received a new replacement in the mail. I am grateful your company takes pride in customer service. Please forward this to management, as I would like to give my sincere thanks for your services. My buddies will think twice about making fun of my choice in purchasing a modular helmet from Daytona Beach.

Thanks for the Great Helmet, and fast service. I ordered the D.O.T. approved Half Shell helmet in Chrome. The Chrome is great and the helmets fits perfectly. I used the sizing chart and it is very accurate. This helmet is great at highway speeds with no windshield, you don't even know it is there.
Hi Daytona Helmets,
I spoke with a young lady with your company today about this, but felt I should put in writing too. On Tuesday 06/17/08, I was travelling down Fowler Ave. in Temple Terrace, FL. After going through an intersection the vehicle in front of me came to an abrupt stop. I swerved left and the bike (05-Electra Glide) went into a side skid. As I was coming out of the skid I was ejected from the bike. I have road rash on both arms, left knee, my right shoulder and my shoulder blade is killing me! However, I credit your helmet for saving me from what could have been death or extreme serious injury. My wife and I, as well as our family Thank You. I don't care how uncomfortable or uncool it may be, always, always wear a helmet. With lids like yours, no one has an excuse not to wear one.
Again, thank you very much and we wish you much success.
In February 08, I purchased one of your helmets (German-Flat Blk-4XL). I was wearing said helmet when I crashed my bike (2000 Yamaha 1100 Classic). I was propelled about 15-20 ft. through the air, there-by striking the right-rear side of my head (helmet) on the asphault. I was checked out by EMS and was told I should be dead or at the least, suffered a severe concussion. I am here to write you this e-mail only because of your great helmet! Plus, the helmet only has a small indentation on the right side.
I commend you for producing such a FINE PRODUCT! Your helmets set the STANDARD for the rest of the industry. I continue to ride and wear the helmet and feel ultimately safe while doing so. Here's to you Daytona Helmets for saving my life!
Thanks again from a Grateful and Satisfied Customer!!!!!
I just wanted to tell you that I have one of your helmets and it fits just right. I have been looking for a smaller shell helmet for a long time. I have a smaller head and it is hard to find a helmet that fits. Others say they have different shell sizes, but they don't, they are still big. I have the 3/4 helmet.
I just purchased a new full faced modular, Daytona Helmets - Elcipse. I enjoyed wearing it for the first time yesterday, on a day that reached 95+ degrees in here in VA. I like the field of vision. No part of the side of the helmet is in sight of my view. I dig the flip down smoked eye shield. I really think that is the coolest thing since shaft drives:) All of the components are easy to use and function properly. It is a very cool helmet. All in all, it's a great helmet. It was very cool to wear, temp and looks wise, with plenty of air flow and unrestricted vision. I could hear a lot better in this, than in my other head gear as well. The helmet also felt good in the breeze and moving my head from side to side didn't produce any helmet whip at all. I am going to recommend this to all the bikers I know that wear full face helmets.

Hi Daytona Helmets,
I just got my helmet Friday and I want to Thank You for your services and to let you know that I Love this helmet (Modular). It is great, very versatile, easy to wear and fits perfect. Thank you for your great service and for a "Great Product."
I just received the helmet. Looks good, fits good. Mahalo!
You are great and I appreciate all of your help!

Hi Daytona Helmets,
My D.O.T. "Skullcap" (D1-BNS) just arrived. I cannot tell you how surprised I am at the quality, fit and comfort. I have owned much more expensive helmets that were nowhere near my D1-BNS; from the appearance of the shell, the finish of the interior to the quality of the chin strap system! The addition of the helmet bag and "dew rag" were "above and beyond". The most shocking aspect of my purchase? THE PRICE! How do you manage a profit??!?!?! Count me: A VERY HAPPY CUSTOMER!

Dear Daytona Helmets,
I was wearing one of your helmets when I wrecked my motorcycle at 95 mph. The helmet struck the ground and as you can tell, my head is in tact! I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making such an excellent product.
Robert M. Brost
First off I just want to say WOW! I just ordered a 3/4 Helmet from you guys and it's great. I used to use Fulmer helmets, but no more. Bobblehead is gone! It looks like a damn novelty helmet but its DOT approved. You guys are geniuses! Another great thing about it, is your sizes are accurate. I was hesitant about buying a helmet without ever trying it on, but im sure glad I did. It fits perfect and looks great. Thanks for making a helmet that can save your life and still looks good.
Wonderful service - thank you for your time replying to my emails Kimberly.
Thank you very much!!! The helmet looked even better in person than it did online. Very pleased with your products and customer service!
Just an FYI - we are now carrying Daytona Helmets exclusively. We dropped our other Helmet supplier as we had too many issues with the sizing of their helmets not matching their size chart, and also slow customer service...really hard to get Invoices, statements, confirmation of orders & shipping.
We really enjoy dealing with Daytona for the ease of placing orders, receiving shipping confirmation and great Customer Service, not to mention the great quality of your line of Helmets.
The Leather Dungeon
You guys are awesome, nice doing business with you.

I just received my helmet minutes ago. It's exactly what I wanted and exactly as advertised. I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazingly you handled my purchase. From ordering after 3:30PM on 10/6 to delivery here in CT before 11:30AM on 10/7...simply awesome!.
My sincere thanks!
I just wanted to say thank you guys so much for everything. If you didn't guess I'm pretty new at this, and I really appreciate how awesome (and patient) you guys have been with me & all my craziness. It's great to know that I can call your office and speak to someone who knows everything that's going on with my customers, even when I don't know what's going on with them. It's really a refreshing change from some of the larger companies we have to deal with. I'm looking forward to working with all of you for a long time.
To whom it may concern:
First I would like to start with saying I was in a accident on July 7th 2009 on Interstate 20. Because of the protective gear that I was wearing I came out with very minimum damage. I have a broken hand, fractured collar bone, and a badly bruised foot. The protective gear I was wearing was Highway Hawks Chaps, a reflective jacket by Throttle Threads, a Daytona carbon fiber helmet, a Milwaukee vest, and a pair of XElement boots. I was going 70mph when I was cut off and ran off the road by a vehicle where I decided to push away when I realized I was no longer be able to gain control over it. From the bottom of our hearts my family and I would like to show the highest appreciation for your products because they limited the damage to the extreme minimum. My wife is pregnant and the last thoughts that I can remember was her raising our child alone. I want to thank you guys for makin it possible for me to be here for the baby. My bike! was very important to me, but with this incident it has shown me what is important. The companies that make the protective gear made it possibe for me to be here. Although I do not have a bike anymore I do have my family, which is the most important. Eventually I will get another bike and I will always wear the protective gears made by these companies. I also thought you guys might want to know that there was very minimum damage to the protective gear. There was minor scuffs, no tears, and in fact the scuffs may go away with washing. So with that being said I want you guys to know that your gear does work.

For The Staff At Daytona Helmets,
Just a short note to let you know what a joy it is to do business with you. Your staff has been so helpful, courteous, knowledgeable and so easy to work with. We ordered helmets, they were too small and we reordered larger sizes, you shipped the second order in record time for our trip. We will recommend you to all of our "Harley" buddies!
Again, thank you for being so great!

Hi Daytona Helmets,
I just wanted to drop you a note thanking you for your product.
On September, I was hit broadside by a car. I was going about 35 mph, when a car pulled out of a side street and hit me square in my right side. The witnesses and police report stated that I flew 20 feet through the air - then left a 25 foot skid mark.
Although my helmet cracked and is scraped up - it did it's job. After being Medi-Vaced to University of Penn, MRI's and tests indicated that my only injuries were broken ankle, ribs, collar bone and shoulder clade. No head injury!
My bike was totaled, however, now that I am out of a wheelchair. A new bike is on order. When it arrives, I will CONFIDENTLY, be replacing my Daytona Helmet.
Thank you again - keep selling this quality product.
