Steelbird R2K Helmet with Plain Visor Matt Black and Grey Review
Steel bird is one of the oldest companies that manufacture top-quality helmets and have now become Asia’s largest helmet exporting company all over the world. They have more than 50 years of experience and the trust of customers.
This helmet comes in various designs and is called Graphic helmets too. The price range may seem a little bit higher. Let’s talk about its features, pros, and cons to know if the product is worth buying or not.
Tough exterior build
The exterior body of this Steel bird helmet is made with durable ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) that is a lightweight yet durable material. This is widely used in helmet manufacturing because of its popular high impact resistance. This can absorb maximum damage due to impact or on heavy collision to protect your head from any injury.
The built-in polycarbonate visor is scratch-resistant. The quality is decent, and it protects you from the direct sunlight and UV rays. Any dust from the road won’t be able to penetrate this visor to reach your eyes and cause any distraction while driving.
Air booster system
The advanced airflow technology on this helmet is called Air booster system. It has two ventilation on the back of the helmet to circulate the air over your head. It prevents heat build-up while riding, especially during summer. Also, below the visor, there is another ventilation port for you to breathe correctly so that you do not feel suffocated.
What Do We like
The high-end premium helmet is very comfortable. The EPS (Expanded polystyrene) crushable foams are installed on the interior for better comfort. Also, the thermo-foam is placed for maximum protection of your head.
It won’t cause you any discomfort during long rides. The soft inner padding can also be removed and washed any time they get dirty. This makes the helmet more hassle-free.
The high-impact ABS shell on the outer body of this helmet makes it quite sturdy and robust build. It can withstand a heavy collision and reduces the chances of you getting hurt. The soft inner padding combined with this hard-coated outer body makes this helmet a complete package when it comes to protection.
This Italian design helmet is one of the best looking helmets available as of now. It is also called a Graphics helmet. The unique design, along with its longevity and ability to withstand such high impact is amazing. It is available in different colors and different graphic designs as well.
This is a large-sized helmet that is available in other sizes too. Make sure to know the right helmet size or measure your head using measurement tape before you make a purchase.
This is a very lightweight helmet for you to wear without any discomfort. It weighs around 1.51 kg. You can wear it for long rides, and you won’t feel a thing.
What We Don’t Like
This uniquely designed helmet does not come with any secured straps. This is considered as a major con for this helmet. Without any straps, your helmet may come off during any impact, which will result in hurting your head. At this price range, a simple quick-release buckle system should have been provided.
This R2K stylish helmet from Steel bird comes with tons of features. This Graphics helmet is as sturdy as it gets and will protect your head from traumatizing injuries. Although, there is a major con in this helmet that you may need considering before you go for this product. Otherwise, the rest of the features are excellent, making it worth buying.
