The photochromatic visor is not the only party trick that makes the SA-1 Aeronautics special.

A motorcycle rider often visualizes Steelbird as an ideal brand that makes commuter and pocket-friendly helmets in the country. The company is popular for having a wide range of options when it comes to good-quality affordable helmets. However, lately it has diversified into helmets that is not bound by money, a strong example of the same was the SBA-1 HF that had a rather quirky trick under its sleeve…music. We used the helmet here at CNN News18 for a while and came out mighty impressed with its practicality and usability.
But, without dwelling on the past much, we have now added the latest offering from the company that falls under the same category, the SA-1 Aeronautics. The helmet, as Steelbird says, has been designed in Italy, and has been carefully crafted to optimize the airflow and provide the best aerodynamics (as the name suggests). While the SBA-1 HF could play music with an aux cord, the Aeronautics has a rather useful feature, photochromatic visors. However, that does not make up for all the things that the helmet has to offer, so let’s dive right into it.
