Can someone confirm what standards the Daijya helmets meet? I can't find any info on them anywhere on the net.

Pradeep, what Rtech is asking for is the standards the Diajya helmets meet.

Worldwide, many countries have defined their own sets of standards that are used to judge the effectiveness of a motorcycle helmet in an accident, and define the minimal acceptable standard thereof. Among them are:
  • AS 1698 (Australia)
  • CSA CAN3-D230-M85 (Canada)
  • JIS T8133 (Japan)
  • NZ 5430 (New Zealand)
  • ECE 22.05 (Europe)
  • BS6658:1985 (UK)
  • DOT FMVSS 218 (USA)
  • ISI (India)
  • And lastly the Snell M2000/M2005 standard, a voluntary, private standard used primarily in the U.S
(Source: Wikipedia)

The link you provided just provides the various models of Diajya helmets available, but does not speak anything about the quality of these.

The price quoted was 5.5k for all models with no warranty. Not sure if its worth the price.

Helmet search continues

PS: Any idea how is House of Helmets in Residency Road Cross? Got their visiting card at Vahan Yatra.
Check out for BHP or Fastrack ones on Lal Bagh road....THe house of Helmets isnt good the last time i visited it stocked only AGV & Gpone, no vemar, index, gpr etc.

There is no need to buy these stupid brands when you can get much better & well known brands from the US for cheaper or around the same price with shipping included.

Why pm when you can post
DennisKirk.com - Metric Bikes - Helmets & Eyewear

ww.newenough.com is another portal that has some good deals, Motorcycle Parts, Motorcycle Accessories by BikeBandit.com is a favourite amongst quite a few with slightly higher prices on riding gear.
