Steelbird Hi-tech India (SBHT) has announced its new range of helmets, the Blauer BET. The company stated that this new range of helmets meets the new European Safety Standards-'ECE 22.06'. It is to be noted that the new European Safety Standards-ECE 22.06 will be a mandate in India and the rest of the world from January 2024.
The European Safety Standards require a helmet to pass a series of HIC (Head Injury Criterion) tests. These include shock absorption, retention systems, and unseating of the helmet. These tests are carried out and submitted for checks to an external certified laboratory.
Even helmet accessories, such as integrated sun visors, will have standards that they will need to meet to pass testing. The tests will see harder and faster impacts being created, and low-speed impacts too. Furthermore, there will also be a new angle rotation introduced to the impact test.
The new helmet from Steelbird features an open-face design and comes equipped with an inbuilt sun-visor. The Blauer branding is visible on the front, sides, and the back of the helmet along with stylish graphics all across. The prices and availability details are not available yet.
