Spada Duo helmet

Reviewer: Mikko Nieminen // RRP: £99.95 // Sizes: XS-XL // Colours: Gloss black, matt black, pearl white // Info:

This is a very special helmet indeed. In a matter of seconds, it transforms from a full-face helmet to an open-face one. And in a couple of minutes (with a help of a £2 coin to work the screws) the helmet can take on another look with the detachable beak. That gives you three different variations of the same helmet for less than a hundred quid. Brilliant!


On top of all the different incarnations of the helmet, it also features a flip-down sun visor, removable cheek and centre lining pads, a three-point ventilation system, quick-release chin strap fastening and it’s Pinlock ready. The helmet has a thermoplastic shell and it’s EC2205-approved. That’s all great, but let’s get to the clever bit:

What makes the Spada Duo so versatile is the removable chin bar. When it’s in place you have a regular full-face helmet, but press two buttons and pull the bar and it comes off, making this an open-face helmet.



Even when used as a full-face helmet the view from the helmet is great thanks to the massive visor. If you feel that full-face helmets are a bit claustrophobic, it’s worth trying this one as it feels very open even with the chin bar in – and if that’s not good, just take it off.

The helmet also comes with a removable beak that gives the helmet a more off-road look. The beak can be fitted and removed easily by unscrewing the visor fittings with a coin. It only takes a couple of minutes to do and transforms the look of it completely.
