Helmet manufacturer Steelbird Hi-Tech India has launched the SBA-1 HF “Hands-Free” helmet. The helmet is battery less and connects to the rider’s phone with an AUX.
The SBA-1 Hands Free is compatible with all phones and includes features such as noise cancellation through single directional microphone, easy access to Google assistant, and a dedicated button for call connect and disconnect. The speakers in the helmet do not have noise cancellation feature, to keep riders aware of traffic sounds around them, like horns or ambulance sirens.
Using this helmet, the rider can easily attend calls by simply clicking a button. The microphone on the helmet is single actuator microphone, so only the voice of the rider will be clearly transmitted. Additionally, this helmet has a waterproof mechanism with IP5 water resistant hands-free parts.
The SBA-1 HF has an air intake on the chin guard, an air intake in the frontal and top of the helmet as well as two rear extractors recycling air inside the helmet. It also comes with a polycarbonate anti-scratch coated visor and quick release mechanism.
