Motorcycle racing gives an adrenaline rush for professionals and amateurs alike. Racing includes off-road, circuits, tracks or open courses as well as hill climbing, land speed trials and drag racing. Whatever thrill you seek, being able to easily communicate with your pit and other controllers can improve your timing. A Bluetooth motorcycle helmet is one example of the latest technology that makes communication clearer and easier between riders and control.
Especially during a cross-country rally or an Enduro, communication is essential. To streamline the gear, a boomless model is available with two microphones in the helmet. All outside noise including other cyclists, wind and machinery is blocked for easy hearing and clearer transmission. While traveling down the highway at 70 miles per hour, you’ll be able to hear the voice clearly of someone calling on your phone, and the caller will be able to hear you.
Helmets with these built-in systems are also useful for trips either on- or off-road. Bluetooth-enabled helmets work as an intercom between riders, so even when they get separated, they are always in communication. You can communicate up to 500 meters away with the intercom system.
When not racing, you can make or take phone calls while you are still moving or listen to music from your phone. The voice-activated pick-up allows hands-free functionality for incoming calls. This is multi-tasking at its best for people who would rather be riding than not.
This type of communication system can be installed in any type of helmet, so you don’t need to change your style. It can also be used for other power activities such as skiing, snowmobiling or anything you do that requires a helmet. You’ll always be in contact when you need to be or listening to your favorite music. In fact, when your conversation ends, the music will automatically continue.
It is recommended to set up the helmet and get the main unit charged before going out on the road. You can become familiar with the features and buttons before going 80 miles per hour. You can also access Siri and get directions while riding to make sure your ride is smooth and in control.
