High-Tech Motorcycle Helmets for the Avid Rider

Now a regular feature in our vehicles, smart technology grants us the convenience to make phone calls, change music and get directions to your destination, without having to take your eyes off the road or your hands off the wheel.

Thanks to the latest offerings from motorcycle and safety equipment brands, motorbike riders are now able to access all of the same practical features from a helmet. According to Motorcycles Data, the motorcycle industry will be worth US$156 billion by 2026, and luxury accessories like these practical and convenient smart tech helmets will become a vital piece of kit for those who own a motorbike.

Forcite MK1S Smart Helmet

Its latest smart helmet, the MK1S, has a carbon fibre shell and features Forcite’s patented peripheral LED display which allows riders to see road alerts and navigation commands in real-time.

Wearers will be able to hear crisp audio through premium Harman Kardon speaker drivers and speak through dual integrated microphones which are tuned to cut out wind noise.

A camera positioned on the chin captures 1080p and is race track approved, allowing wearers to conveniently capture footage while riding and easily share it through the Forcite app. All of these features come to the total price of A$1,299.

Sena Momentum Inc Pro

Combining the high-tech audio features of the Momentum Bluetooth helmet with a QHD action camera, Sena’s Momentum Inc Pro is one of the smartest helmets on the market. Capturing 1440p of footage through a 135-degree field of view, the built-in camera is affixed to the top of the helmet and can be activated at the press of a button.

According to Sena, studies show that freeway noise can reach over 100 decibels and sustained exposure can cause permanent hearing loss. To combat this, the Momentum Inc Pro comes with noise cancellation and intelligent noise control, so you can opt to clearly hear your surroundings while also reducing wind noise.
