Always dreamed of having a communication device integrated into your helmet? Then you would know that popular Bluetooth modules like Sena are a bit on the expensive side. So, Steelbird has come up with a rather cost-effective, novel solution by launching the SBA-1 HF. This helmet comes with speakers and a mic, and is connected to the phone using an aux cable. While it isn’t as advanced as the Bluetooth communicators from Sena, the SBA-1 HF is actually a pocket-friendly alternative which lets you listen to music / take up calls on the go.
While this is a simple and clever addition to a helmet, riders will have to make sure the wire is taut yet loose enough to offer some degree of movement of the head. We also recommend using the audio feature at low volume as riding requires high levels of alertness and awareness of the immediate surroundings. Though many riders use headphones inside their helmets while riding, this one is a relatively safer way to serve the purpose. Here’s Steelbird’s official communication regarding the launch:
