Steelbird SBH20 ZIP Review
The designer XTECH DESIGN in collaboration with Italy offers this Steelbird helmet in polycarbonate material. Keep your head safe with this helmet. The material is durable because the polycarbonate visor comes with an anti-scratch coating. The visor gives a wide range of vision and a clear picture of the road. The high impact visor protects your eyes from dust, wind, rain, and keeps your drive smooth. Without this outer disturbance, you will feel comfortable riding. However, this is an open face helmet that extends as far as the chin, but it only protects your eyes and not fully covers the chin area. The visor can be upgraded or replaced as per the requirement.
Quick Release Micrometric Buckle
The helmet gets locked with a micrometric buckle near the chin area. Also known as a micro ratchet, these are simple to use. It holds tight and sticks to the head perfectly. This ratchet is made from the plastic material, which is relatively cheap to make. Therefore easily available in the local market. You might find this thing similar in many other helmets. But it’s important to know the difference between good and bad helmets. Because while most of the local helmets have this feature, the quality and genuineness, are determined by the tightness of the buckle. The helmet strap is made to work on the tightness of the helmet. As you all must know: while getting a driving license, the concerned authority checks for your buckle such that it should not wobble. The micrometric buckle meets ECE 22.05 Standards.
Cheek Pad for Extra Comfort
Steelbird has carefully designed this helmet to support the cheekbone with extra cushioning. As this is an open face helmet, attention to these details is made, according to the rider’s comfort and durability of use. The brand lives up to the expectations of its customers, and that’s why it is regarded as one of the largest manufacturers of the helmet in the Asia region.
Shell Material Hi-Impact ABS
The most important part of the helmet is its outer hardness to determine the impact it can take during accidents. Driving carefully is one thing, but at instances, like road accidents, one should not take for granted, the need for wearing the right helmet. So made from the ABS, the outer shell of the helmet is hard enough to sustain shock and is scratch resistance. It’s good at taking external impacts.
Go for the design of this helmet for buying if you are still in doubt. The white reflective design helps in safeguarding during night travel. It lights up at night and thus indicating the driver behind you about your presence.its a good safety feature for night travelers. The simplicity of the helmet with these white lines is what attracts the most.
