It’s better to be safe than sorry. Riding motorcycles without wearing helmets can be risky. You never know when things might go wrong. So it is important to wear helmets, not just for the sake of the law, but for your own safety as well. All of us have different budget varying with our own choices; some of us might choose to wear half helmets over full helmets or even dirt. Choosing a helmet isn’t an easy job. Here we have three different types of helmets.
1. Half Helmets:
The first two helmets are Studds Dude and SMK Stream which falls under the half helmets category.
- Studs Dude:
Studds Dude is one of the best sporting helmets for men with customization for both summer and winter. It Comes with visor that is comparatively longer than other half Helmets that protects you from dirt and pollution at just Rs 1,620/-, but if you’re a lady and looking for a similar helmet then we have the Studds dame. It has a small cut hole at the back to fit your ponytail. For couples, who want to match their helmets, these two helmets might be the one you’re looking for.
- SMK Stream:
On the other hand there is the ECE certified SMK Stream helmet which has superior removable inner puddings and safety features such as efficient ventilation system and one touch replaceable visor which gives the rider an excellent view of the road. If you don’t mind spending more for some additional safety features, then you definitely should look at this helmet. The price for this helmet is Rs 7,020/-.
2. Full Helmets:
Moving along, for daily commuters, who are planning to buy a full face helmet, Studds Thunder, Bilmola NEX, and Airoh Valor helmets could be one that you might want to buy.
- Studds Thunder:
Studds thunder, it is made of thermoplastic shell. It comes with washable and removable liners that ensure hygiene of you and your helmet. This helmet has dynamic ventilation system and the aerodynamic design is something that you’ll not regret spending Rs 3,395/- on.

Adding more to it, Airoh has an anti fog visor and hypoallergenic liners, to help you especially in winters. All this comes at Rs 19,400/- with exciting graphics. But if you can compromise on the graphics, or need a plain white helmet then you can get it at Rs 18,400/-. However both theses helmets have crossed our budget margin, by slight numbers. But I couldn’t resist myself talking about these helmets, as they deliver such great features.
