These helmets are priced at EUR 219 (Around Rs 17,300) in European markets.
The helmets are currently certified as per ECE 22.05 norms but are not ISI-compliant as of now. However, Steelbird has applied for dual certification which will make the helmets comply with both ECE and ISI norms. The brand expects the certification to pass in the next month.
Steelbird also plans to launch riding accessories from Blauer in the next financial year (April 2020). Unlike the newly launched Blauer helmets, these accessories will be imported for sale in the country. The helmet maker will decide about the local manufacturing based on the demand later.
