Renowned helmet manufacturer Steelbird has launched its latest SBA-1 HF helmet in India. The biggest highlight of the new Steelbird SBA-1 HF helmet is the hands-free mechanism that lets the rider attend phone calls and listen music.

The Steelbird SBA-1 HF is batteryless, connects to the phone with an AUX and is compatible with all devices. The new Steelbird SBA-1 HF can be purchased from the company's official website for India - www.steelbirdhelmet.com at a price of Rs. 2,589. Apart from this, the new helmet also boasts of noise cancellation through a single directional microphone, access to Google assistant and a dedicated button to answer and disconnect the calls.
The company says that the speakers in the helmet do not a have noise cancellation feature in order to keep the rider aware of the sounds around, like horn, ambulance siren etc. The handsfree parts of the new Steelbird SBA-1 HF are claimed to be waterproof with IP5 rating which means that the helmet can also be used easily during the rainy season. Another notable feature of the Steelbird SBA-1 HF helmet is a button that lets the rider attend the calls by just pressing it.
