Ather Halo Helmets Reveal: Both Smart and Safe

Ather revealed its first-ever helmets – the Halo and Halo Bit at the Ather Community Day Event this year. Both of these helmets come with built-in speakers and a mic along with the option to charge wirelessly. Ather also launched their much-awaited Rizta electric scooter, which is a mix of affordability and practicality.

Back to the helmets, the Ather Halo gets a Harman Kardon speaker system along with a mic, which basically means you can pair the Halo to your smartphone as well as your Ather e-scooter. This will allow you to control your music playback and receive phone calls on the go (Not advisable to ride and listen to music, but nice feature to have). The Halo bit is essentially the half-face version of the full-face Halo helmet and comes with the features but in a smaller and open-face design.

Now both the Halo and Halo Bit have been certified to both the ISI as well as DOT standards which ensures top-notch safety and both the helmets feature a ratchet strap closure AKA micrometric buckle. Ather claims that the Halo and Halo bit helmets have a battery life of approximately 10 days on a single charge. Furthermore, both the rider and pillion can listen to the same music if both are wearing Halo helmets.

For those who are wondering why the a huge price gap between the two Helmets despite having the same features, it’s for the protection the full-face Halo offers the Half-faced Halo Bit. It is always advisable to wear a full-face helmet that offers full protection to your chin and face too in case of an accident which are the likely parts that will suffer from the impact first unlike the half-face helmets which only offer head protection.
