- Good built and great look.
- Flipup front, great for a quick sutta (I know shouldn’t smoke while riding :angel: Pun intended!!!)
- Inner sun shades.
- Matte finish.
- Removable inner liners.
- Wisor can be removed with bare hands.
- Too much weight, neck strains if worn on flipup for long.
- Wisor gets stained way to quickly.
- IMO Need more vents.

I have been using Studds 3 G Modulator before this and compared to that this is top quality on safety and have been using it for the last 2.5 years. You will feel the helmet weight on the heavier side but after use you will get used to it. After-all it's truly strong and very safe too.
Cons - The only con that i have felt is that they don't have a pin lock visor
pros- 1. comes with anti-fog visor that actually works pretty good
2. After wearing does not feel heavy
3. Vents work properly
4. DD ring/ chin cover/ dual visor makes it safer n comfy
5. Comes with all that we expect from a helmet of this budget. For more information click the following URL
I'm very particular in buying things. I don't get satisfied easily. But this helmet didn't give me a chance to complain. Had an unfortunate fall while cornering, a hard head fall on pavement, didn't even feel any stress in uper shoulder section.
Only 1- while riding above 70 kmph, if i face down, I get wind noise. More than other helmets those I use.

Have been using the SMK Force Steel full face variant . This one is under the brand name of SMK - a STUDDS company. Like the overall helmet considering its lightweight and quite functional. Although the pin lock visor is very effective during winter rides, however the pin lock visor is very sensitive to scratches on indian roads. Got it scratched during the first ride itself, and had to get it replaced. Also, the wind noise cancellation could have been better, although its better than my previous one (Ninja).
Full Face helmet in thermoplastic, made using the latest generation materials. The extra wide visor provides the rider with an excellent view of the road. The air intakes on the chin guard and helmet top ensures making comfort even in extreme weather conditions. It comes with a range of exciting features like Internal retractable Sun visor, the Wind stops, Original Pinlock® ready to prevent visor fogging and is Bluetooth ready.

After using MT Axxis and Studds Shifter for couple of years I had been looking for a premium helmet. Bell, AGV, Airoh were couple which I could really invest on as they’re the most trusted brands across.
I finally landed on Bell Qualifier Blaze Hi-Viz Yellow-Black Helmet. Priced at 9K at most of the online portals I ordered mine from Motocentral. They’re authorised resellers for Bell in India(Pune). Received in 16hours of order placement.
Sleek, stylish look and reliable Bell build quality. The Qualifier is a no-frills helmet that looks good and performs like it should, every time.
The Bell Qualifier Helmet comes jam packed with many great features at an aggressive price.
Featuring an aerodynamic shell and Bell's exclusive ClickRelease face shield system, the Qualifier Helmet offers a refined fit shape, tons of punch for the dollar with aggressive style great for any riding position.
The Bell Qualifier raises the performance/value quotient to exceptional new levels.

Have used it during my 20 day long ride to Bhutan and hands down it delivered. No water seeping. Zero fog as it already has proper ventilation in the visor. Air circulation is considerably great compared to previous helmets. Noise reduction is awesome.
Premium hence extra care is required.
Even the visor is of 3.5K so you need to be extra cautious about it during your rides.
