It is an ISI-approved helmet made of excellent quality material and is highly durable. Feels tight at first but the foam adjusts to the rider’s head shape in around 10 days. The outer shell is made up of high impact ABS material with a quality matt finish for aesthetic looks. And, the inner shell is made of high density Polystyrene with cotton fabric interiors. Plus, the high density EPS liner ensures advanced safety mechanism. It has a micro-metric buckle retention system considered one of the best-in-business.

The visor available on this Steelbird Air is very easy to remove on your own. Plus, there are two types of visors available for SBA-1 free live helmet:
- Plain Visor

We prefer plain visor more than the other because it provides a clear view of the road even during the night. Also, we found no issues regarding vision angle while we reviewed this full face helmet by Steelbird.
The visor is made of polycarbonate anti scratch coated material. It isn’t an anti fog visor so don’t expect it to keep the fog away from you while riding.
