Server Error in '/studds' Application.
Runtime Error
Description: An application error occurred on the

error from being viewed remotely (for security
reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers
running on the local server machine.

Bhvm,

Sir the link worked yesterday but from today it is having a server problem. As per the link i just suggested the Studds Premium Vent Model.

Buying a helmet through e-bay or any other website would be comfortable but you can't judge the size even though if you have ordered the size. So just have a glance or have it has an idea from the internet and buy it in a popular stores in your city so that you can differentiate helmets and you can even wear it and see the colours you prefer.

That is precisely I wanted tell. You might get into receiving some helmet which might not be size you require.

My sister had problem getting helmet last month in here. Some one suggested to go for online. Due to the issue of size I did n't opt for it. Even now my son wanted to buy an helmet thru online. I told him clearly that we will go to helmet shop and buy it.

I recently bought a Bell classic open face helmet and I have to say that despite Bell being in a pricer category, the value in terms of protection and looks is also higher. Looking at the Enfield products, I am not that impressed by the designs. But to everybody their own, I have my heart set on my Bell Custom 500[cheers] (it's white with colored strips) and the bike accessory shop in Chhatarpur, where I got it from, is quite reliable and renowned for stocking international helmet brands in India.

I would strongly discourange any form of Open face/ Half helmet.
Due to inertia during a crash, Most of the face-plant puts force on the Chin/Teeth area. These helmets skip the highest risk areas.

Only BIS-certified helmets to be made, sold in India for two-wheelers

The government on Friday said only Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS)-certified helmets would be manufactured and sold in India for two-wheelers.

This would help in avoiding sale of low-quality two-wheeler helmets in the country, which would help in protecting persons involved in accidents from fatal injuries, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways said in a statement.

"The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways...has issued the ''Helmet for riders of Two Wheelers Motor Vehicles (Quality Control ) Order, 2020''.

"Protective helmets for two-wheeler riders have been included under compulsory BIS certification and the publication of the Quality Control Order," it said.

Following the directions of the Supreme Court Committee on Road Safety, a committee was formulated to consider lighter helmets in India suiting the country''s climatic conditions and that for ensuring compliance among citizen to wear the helmets.

The committee had experts from different fields, including expert doctors from AIIMS and also from BIS.

The committee in March 2018, after detailed analysis in its report, recommended lighter helmets in the country, and the ministry accepted the report.

According to the recommendations of the committee, the BIS has revised specifications through which it is expected to make lighter helmets.

The total number of two-wheelers being manufactured in India annually stands at about 1.7 crore.

The International Road Federation, a Geneva-based global road safety body working for better and safer roads worldwide, welcomed the road transport ministry''s move to bring helmets for two-wheeler riders under the mandatory BIS regime.

"This much-awaited move means the sale of non-BIS certified helmets will be an offence once the notification comes to effect," K K Kapila, president emeritus of the International Road Federation, said. PTI SID HRS

What they say, as per above report' is that imported helmets will be okay, provided those helmets meet BIS standards.
May be they are trying to encourage Indian made helmets and discourage people buying imported helmets.

Are they going to ask all imported helmets must carry certification confirming that those helmets meet BIS standards? - Let us wait and see what is going to happen!
