Steelbird Hi-Tech India, one of the country’s oldest helmet manufacturer has introduced a new range of Motocross helmets called Bang. These helmets are targeted at the growing number of motocross enthusiasts in India and Steelbird promises style and safety. Apart from being in the helmet business for more than 50 years, the brand also exports more than 2,000 articles (other than helmets) to more than 50 nations around the world.
The Bang range has been designed in Italy using high tech materials and modern technology. These can be used not only for off-road racing but for regular road use as well. With off roading gaining popularity steadily in the country, especially in the South and North East, Indian-made helmets have the potential to become an ideal buy for the youth.
Bang features a clear elongated chin with ventilation and double visor portions. The helmets also boast of an anti-theft ring (we are not sure how does it work)!
