Flip-Up Convenience: The one-button, easy-flipping mechanism let one lean over or remove one’s face mask for drinking, chatting with friends, or removing the helmet without completely taking it off.

Breathable Padding and Comfort: The soft padding and nuchal protector are air permeable, allowing a higher degree of comfort even when the helmet is worn for long trips. The Italian design, creating a special style, is itself a stylish feature of this cafe.

Hygienic Interior: The multi-pore inner part promotes efficiency by providing ventilation space and is detachable and washable, so you can have clean helmet condition.

Quick Release Features: Both the visor and the chinbar possess the quick-release features that allow the use of the washable breath guards for easy operation when wearing gloves.

ISI Certified Safety: Therefore, this helmet complies with ISI standard set by Bureau of Indian standards (BIS) for both impact responses and shells integrity.


Limited Ventilation Information: The absence of exact number of the vents is challenger in comparison with 5-vent Maverick ventilating performance.

Weight Not Specified: Weights are left out for the third time, however flip-up helmets tend to be not really by a little heavier than full-face helmets due to an extra mechanism.

Limited Size Information: It is the case that the DVD listing contains information about medium size only. Among the other customers who do not have exactly the same foot shape or who need smaller or larger sizes, the riders may have problems with retailers who can offer the varied size range.


This Steelbird SB-46 Rider II looks like a good option for all those who need a practical flip-up helmet to keep the face clear and protected simultaneously. The flip-up mechanism, as well as the breathable padding prevailing in the helmet (information not verified) guarantee seamless occurrence of the joyful procession of biking (information not confirmed). The ISI certification assures the safety standard, while the detachable and washable inside feature makes the cleaning more convenient. Yet, there is no information regarding the weight, less-than-perfect ventilation style compared to the Maverick, and as well as limited size range that might be important.
