Steelbird, one of the leading Indian helmet brands, has launched the new Ignyte IGN-7, which is the first made-in-India helmet to receive ECE 22.06 certification. The Ignyte IGN-7 is also the first helmet in India to receive triple homologation as it also conforms to DOT FMVSS No. 218 for the US market and India's Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) safety standards. The new helmet is priced from 6,199 onwards.

The ECE 22.06 homologation standard for helmets came into effect in 2022, replacing ECE 22.05. The ECE standards are helmet safety and regulatory standards set by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe. Under these safety standards, helmets undergo more tests including impact resistance at high and low-speed crashes, rotational impact tests, and testing with accessories like intercom systems and sun visors. The new regulations now require helmets to undergo 18 tests as against five in ECE 22.06. The helmets are also tested at different speeds of 6, 7.5, and 8.2 m/s.
