Today i had called the Ather Customer Service Centre over the phone for 5 times and never got connected after a long wait.

How to buy via Ather Credits, it would have been really nice if everything was online, selecting the size to buy, colour, type and payment system just like booking the scooter. Hope everything goes online even TPMS sensors.

You can pay with Ather credits at an Ather Space. There is a plan for making the accessories and merchandise available online, but no timeline yet.

I only see “ISI” certified on the helmets. Is it not DOT/ECE certified?

As we know, the ISI standard for helmets is pretty bad and doesn’t make for strong helmets!

Mavox helmets are pretty good. I have used them previously, quite bulky but they are following GOI guidelines and that is what they are offering. They have ECE visor certification, if Ather went for the FX30 model then it has both BIS certification and ECE certification, let us wait for what Ather went with.

Apart from the fact that helmets having ECE/DOT certification are better, nonetheless you cannot have a helmet without the ISI certification in India. Kinda doesn’t make a lot of sense, but such is the rule. :man_shrugging:

BTW, there are helmets without ISI available, mostly half head ones etc. but landing in front of a wise cop, it’ll be more than a helmet’s worth of ₹. And if it’ll be pain and hospital bills.

Of course. You’d have ISI also. But having at least DOT in addition is significantly better. ISI has been making their helmet standards worse over the years! The one I use regularly is ISI and DOT certified. I couldn’t find SNELL/ECE certified ones that I liked.

Depends on how bulky it is. ISI has actually reduced the max weight in their standard for helmets, which is pretty bad. The max weight for ISI is about 1.2 Kg now, while with SNELL/ECE it can go up to 1.5 Kg!

And for SNELL/ECE certified helmets to be ISI certified also, they need to reduce the weight with Carbon fibre and other durable low weight materials, which means that they are going to be significantly more expensive.

Overall, the current ISI standard is pretty bad compared to other popular standards. ISI should just adopt one of the existing ones instead of creating a new standard!

Then from when will the helmet be available in Indiranagar and is it only for Indiranagar or J.P. Nagar and Rajajinagar also doesn’t have the helmet’s?

Yeah, I checked my helmet after I wrote the comment above and saw that mine is also more than 1.2 Kg. A lot of articles online say it is 1.2 Kg. I will look for the official spec and add it here.
