Man why didn't I find you guys sooner? I bought the 1/2 shell gloss black skull and finally, FINALLY, have found my helmet! And since I live here on the "left coast" I gotta wear one. I am happy! (excuse me got to wipe a tear and blow my nose....there that's better). I know it may sound silly to some, getting all excited about a stupid helmet, but it is the truth ( my wife just rolled her eyes and shook her head, "Another helmet?!") My wife is now very happy for me but she has absolutely drawn the line on me wearing it to bed (go figure) This thing is soooo light, fits just perfect and NO MO MUSHROOM HEAD! And D.O.T. approved to boot.... y'all got a fan for life! Daytona Helmets Rock!!! Keep up the good work. ~Byron McClure a.k.a.

Thank you for another informative website. Where else could I get that kind of info written in such a perfect way? I've a project that I am just now working on, and I have been on the look out for such information.
Your Helmets are BAD ASS! 2nd one I have bought. Thanks for making a great product as well as keeping an amazing price
Bought 3 of the 1/2 shell DOT approved helmets for 2 of my buddies and myself. All 3 of us absolutely LOVE these helmets! They are lightweight, comfortable, and look great! Customer service was awesome and I would highly recommend using this company! Overall I'd rate them an A+!!!
Just got it in and must say compared to the bell modular helmet It replaces, this helmet is much more comfortable, lighter and has more features, the quick release chin strap works great, the chin guard does not rub my chin like the old Bell. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I haven't had a chance to get the blue tooth communications installed but it's nice that it comes ready for it without having to modify the inner liner as I did to the old helmet. Everything they say about it is spot on except the didn't mention the free pinlock anti fog inner shield, that thing works great, huge difference with/without. The price is comparable to the old helmet with more features!!
My father in law bought this helmet within the past two months. He loved how it looked and felt. This past weekend him and I went on a long ride but it came to an unexpected hault when I bicyclist cut infront of us on a back country road. The bicyclists took up the entire road and when we approached them one of them (who saw us) turned hard into the middle of the road where we were going to pass them. My father in raced motorcross for many years, in order to save both of there lives he quickly locked up the brakes and laid his bike down. When they collided the bike flipped over top of them and my father in law head hit the pavement hard. The helmet only has a few scratches on the side, but there is not a single crack on it. I was in the process of looking at getting a new lid, and after seeing that I know that I'm going to be buying a Daytona helmet. Great price and definitely amazing quality
Wonderful site. Plenty of useful info here. I'm sending it to a few pals ans additionally sharing in delicious. And naturally, thank you to your sweat!
I received my new Daytona Shadow yesterday. I gotta say, it was a perfect fit and does not require break in. It was very comfortable out of the box. My biggest issue with other brands, was how bulky they were. The Shadow was perfect and not bulky at all. I ordered the black shield which looks great. Sales staff was quick to call me prior to shipping, to advise I had ordered the wrong face shield, which they corrected. I received my helmet in 3 days. Thank you Daytona! Chris
Ive had your DOT Skull Cap for about a month. It was money well spent! Im 72 and over the years Ive had lots of helmets some costing 6 time the price of this Daytona helmet. Its COMFORTABLE-light-well made and looks great. I live in CT a non helmet required state. So for me to wear a helmet in the Summer is saying something. This is the 1st message Ive ever sent to a manufacturer about anything but wanted to tell you how impressed Im w/ your product Keep up the good designs and quality.. Best Ken
Very good helmet , well constructed, old helmet would move around in speeds over 60, this helmet fits snug and has no movement. Also i like 1 hand unlatch feature. Highly recommended.
Recently went down, hit a curb at about 30-35. I got thrown off and my head hit, along with my left side. Helmet didn't crack and I walked away fine. Definitely will be getting my next helmet from Daytona. Thanks for your superior equipment!
I was wearing your gloss German style helmet at the end of this July when I wrecked my bike doing probably at least 70 mph. I broke the front brim of the helmet and my jaw. But the general consensus is that I probably should have died. I am writing to let you know 3 things. One, the general need to wear a helmet. Two, I really believe your helmet kept me from breaking my nose, and crushing my skull! And three, I plan on getting another helmet. Maybe 2. I got a new bike so I'm back on it. It's flat black. It looks sharp, lol. I think your German style helmets are comfortable and they look good. And your helmet kept my brains where they should be. Thank you!
Interestingly enough, when I bought my version of this helmet it was labeled as DOT compliant and that's why I purchased the helmet. It's been the perfect 1/2 helmet for our warm-weather here in Georgia and just doing side-by-side comparisons with other DOT 1/2 helmets I've continued to wear it since seeing it's no longer sold as a DOT compliant helmet. The retention system is fantastic and perhaps one of the DOT-related issues. That said, when I need to replace this helmet I'll likely go with the same model, DOT labelled or not.
Hi Sheryl. Just wanted to say that the MG1-C-3XL D.O.T. DAYTONA GLIDE- HI-GLOSS WHITE (Size: 3XL) helmet I ordered from y'all is awesome! Thanks for the quality and function in an affordable product.
I purchased a Daytona leather covered Skull Cap, i never knew how crapy my old helmet fit till i got my new daytona helmet. i will be promoting daytona helmets. GREAT HELMET< WEIGHT> very happy with my purchase, 5 stars Thank you for making a great helmet
I was looking for a secondary helmet, mainly for night time riding. After wearing it for a test ride, I found myself liking this more than a Shoei helmet! Does not feel cheap, thick padding, but at the same time does not squeeze your cheeks, super comfortable. Measurements are accurate. The sun visor has no external slider, instead you slide it down like the exterior visor (no chance in getting it off the track or breaking like other helmets with internal visor). There are no "wavy" visual effects like cheaper internal helmets with visors have. Wind noise is average, nothing to complain about. Chin strap is of quality built and easy release mechanism. Very simply looking helmet but feels like it should be over $200. For $100, there are no other helmets that can compete with this.
On September 16th I was on my way home from Oklahoma City to meet up with some of the guys I rode up with. I took the exit and the rest is blank. I evidently went off road and hit a culvert and getting thrown from the bike. I did suffer a slight concussion but I was told by the Doc that if I had not been wearing my helmet it would have been so much worse. I bought this helmet about 3 years ago and have been using it since. I love the fit and the protection it has obviously offered me. It is definitely above the DOT standards. I just want to thank the company for being such a quality helmet provider. I will definitely be wearing the same kind of helmet once all is said and done. I am doing much better today and just waiting for insurance and such to get settled and then I will be back on the road again wearing a daytona helmet of course.
I had neck and back surgery in 1998 everything went very well, however, I now have neck problems. After having physical therapy for a week I felt like a new man. I then rode my bike all day returned home and I was back to square one with much pain. My doctor said it might be my helmet. I looked to you guy's in search of a very light helmet. I ordered the half Skull Cap Helmet and it's been pain free riding everyday. I love my helmet and thanks for the great customer service.
Oh yea I also bought the ear warmers they fit and work very good.

Good afternoon, I just wanted to take the time to write a review about my experience with this company. I felt that the woman I spoke to was very helpful and very professional. I believe her name was Lori, she made my experience wonderful and I felt I needed to let you guys know. Thank you
