Despite its low costs, the Detel Tred helmet is compatible with the BIS framework and comes with features seen in more expensive helmets.
We recently reported how the government plans to ban non-ISI helmets from June 2021 and make all helmets on sale to comply with BIS standards. Now, Detel, a company based out of Haryana, has launched an open-face helmet called TRED, that it dubs as the cheapest helmet that is compliant with BIS standards.
The helmet is ISI rated and can be purchased from their website and Amazon. If you are a bulk buyer, you can get it on www.b2badda.com. With this helmet, the company aims to encourage road safety among riders by pricing it very low – only at ₹699. It will compete with Steelbird Joy helmet, which is around ₹200 more expensive than this.
The low cost of this helmet does not mean that it comes with the inferior build quality. The company claims durable build quality, and the shell is made up of unbreakable HD Fresh Granules.
It comes with features that are commonly seen in more expensive helmets, like removable interiors, detachable chikpad and visor, etc. Talking about the visor, Detel claims that it is scratch-free, and is 3 mm thick. The helmet shell also comes with a reflector to make night rides safer for the rider.
