More Amazing Features and Benefits
Although the star of the show for this helmet is the integrated Bluetooth system, its other basic helmet features further adds to its functionality as a whole.
Now let’s take a look at these features one by one:
- Lightweight and Aerodynamic
At 3.75, this half shell helmet is so lightweight that you won’t feel like you’re even wearing a helmet! You also won’t have to worry about straining your neck and spine from wearing the helmet for long hours. It is also designed to be very aerodynamic for maximum speed and performance.
- Fiberglass shell
Although not considered as rigid or tough as compared to the other materials, fiberglass dissipates impact in its own way. It is flexible and can bend and withstand more strain, which makes it absorb and dissipate the force of impact more efficiently, leaving you with minimal force from the impact.
- Nylon strap D-ring retention system
This is the simplest and safest strap for motorcycle helmets.
Not all helmets have the same interior. How comfortable you feel wearing it depends on what’s inside, and that’s what is important. The interior of this helmet is designed with mixed materials to promote ventilation and sweat wicking so that sweat does not stick to the material causing a foul smell. The interior is also removable and washable, and it is designed so that it won’t interfere with the built-in devices.
- Noise cancelling mic
This voice activated mic is integrated inside the helmet. Even with a normal talking voice, you can be heard over the rumbling sound of your bike.
- Built-in HD speakers
The sound you get from these built in speakers are surprising crisp and clear. To further support the clarity of the speakers, there are flaps that you can easily install that will create a cupped environment so that the sound is focused into your ears. It also keeps wind noise to a minimal, contributing to the overall sound. The flaps are easily clipped on and off for ease of use.
- Bluetooth 4.1
Considered the best Bluetooth version on the market, the 4.1 is the best due to its power saving and efficient connectivity. With this function, you can connect to any Bluetooth devices such as your phone, GPS, and MP3. You can also connect up to 4 people with a distance of up to 900meters (0.5miles). This is perfect if you’re going on tour or riding with friends to allow more efficient communication. Or maybe you just want to listen to the same song together with your friends! This Bluetooth also comes with a built-in FM radio in case you forgot your phone or MP3.
- 10R function
This is the function that allows for hands-free usage of your chosen Bluetooth device. Sleek and low-profile, you can toggle it on or off, volume up or down conveniently at the side of your helmet. It is also water resistant, therefore exposure to large volumes of water would cause it to malfunction.
Yay or Nay?
Sena has done it again with their always trustworthy Bluetooth innovation! What I love about this helmet is its chic and sleek design from the inside out! You really can’t tell that this half helmet has such a sophisticated Bluetooth function.
On top of that, its fiberglass outer shell will be sure to absorb and distribute the force of impact to keep you safe. Safe, comfortable, and fun, you won’t want to take it off.
