  • Steelbird SA-1 Aeronautics Helmet launched starting at INR 2,999/-

    Steelbird Hi-Tech India has launched the SA-1 Aeronautics Helmet, World’s first helmet with NACA duct Airflow Technology. The air flow system of the helmet is especially favored in Racing car designs and aircrafts.

    The double NACA inlets above the shield allows entry of a large volume of air inside the helmet to refresh and dehumidify the interior. The NACA inlets on the back of the helmet allows quick extraction of stale air.

    Designed in Italy, the helmet comes with comfortable and replaceable interiors. The streamlined design of the SA-1 Aeronautics helmet reduces air drag, hence there is an increase in efficiency. The SA-1 Aeronautics helmet comes with a wide range of visors like Iridium coated, Night Vision, smoke visor, specially the photochromatic visor. In numbers, there are 10 range of visors available for the helmet.

    Talking about one of the special visors which the helmet offers is the Photochromatic visor. The two wheeler rider can ride with ease while wearing the SA-1 Aeronautics Helmet with Photochromatic Visor, as the visor changes it color according to the light. The Visor stays Smoky during the day time and turns into a clear one in the dark.

    It is available in a wide range of colors in which the helmet is available like, Battle Green, Hot Pink, Midnight Black, Desert Storm, Maroon, Moon Yellow, Royal Brown etc, in both Matte and Glossy finish Respectively. The Steelbird SA-1 Aeronautics Helmet is available at all Steelbird outlets and at Steelbird at different price ranges starting from INR 2999/- to INR 5999/- depending upon the choice of visor.

      I have never heard of such a thing called "Universal fit helmet Visors"

      Do you know of any other visors that are universal fit?

          Ofcoz, like those pinhole visors, they are inter-connected with the other pinhole helmets.

              Nice, particularly interested in the photochromatic visor of this helmet. I'm not sure if there is a similar visor below ₹20,000. Hope they have one in the 600mm head size.

                You know, I've heard that any helmet with holes or gaps is usually less durable and reliable for the crash protection (the primary reason we use a helmet anyways). But, I'll just assume this is wrong for a minute.

                Steelbird, Vega and Studds are going ahead with their understanding of the "Enthusiast's choice" and I respect their decision, given that the market responds good to it..

                But, along with such fancy ISI (or ISI+DOT) helmets, I think I would really love helmets matching international standards, even if they're made in lesser amounts.

                Dear companies, how about a SNELL rating for an Indian helmet?
                Don't make too many. Make 2000 at a time and see the response, but at least give it a try... will you?
                At least match HJC or Shoei, if not ARAI?


                The last time I felt this way... was that "musical" helmet by... I even forgot the brand.

                      I thought it was inspired by SMK Twister.

                      Vega seems to want a piece of the pie...

                        Poorly designed air ducts will only create loud whining noise at high speeds and there's a good chance you'll go deaf if you keep neglecting that noise over time.
                        I don't know why but even though my first helmet was a Steelbird make, I don't feel like buying this today.
                        I would like to see some windtunnel data or cfd simulation images to really know this isn't just a gimmick helmet(especially seeing that tacky Aeronautics logo up front). Just throwing the words "Made in XYZ" isn't going to get my hopes up!
                        Got a $5 head? Get a $5 helmet.
