Davida Classic Helmet – Esso Gunnarsson
This design is an interpretation of the helmet design used by this racer, created by Davida in direct association with and approved by Esso Gunnarsson. An individual racers design would change and evolve throughout their racing career and so this is an example of just one of the helmet designs he used. Honoring the racing achievements and celebrating the spirit of the Classic Racers, Davida’s Race Series helmets are available in the original historic racing colors of 17 champions from around the world.
The Davida Classic retains all the original design features of the 1950’s “Pudding Basin” crash helmet. Manufactured using traditional materials and techniques, and hand-built with exacting regard to quality. Neat and compact in design, it is an authentic example of the first helmets specially manufactured for motorcycle racing. The Davida Classic helmet has a fiberglass shell, and leather interior, side flaps and neck curtain.
The Davida Classic Helmet does not conform to any current helmet safety standards.
