IGN 8 helmet review: MATT BLACK   “The helmet rule“

Certainly, we will not get into the fine print about the IGN 8 helmet. Yes, it is needs to be ISI certified. While some of the manufacturers have gotten their helmets a dual certification others have taken all three – thereby creating a world class read DOT and or SNELL certified helmets. The IGN-8 comes with Dual Homologation: DOT (FMVSS No. 218) and BIS (IS 4151:2015)

 IGNYTE IGN 8 helmet   “First Impressions“

Yes, we got our hands on the first production piece of the IGN-8 MATT BLACK helmet right off the shelf. The thick visor promises to keep the wind sounds away while the chrome border accentuates its appeal. For the helmet size the Double D- ring fastener is appropriate and feels secure. Additionally, to talk about the interiors, the inner liners have provision to install Bluetooth communication systems and is finished of with reflective accents. The red spoiler at the back gives the illusion that indeed it is “lit up” which we think has been done from a safety standpoint.
