The innovative CrossHelmet is a smart motorcycle helmet that’s packed with safety-conscious features.
Motorcycle helmets have come a long way, especially with the application of smart features that connect the driver with their environment and offer a host of safety features in the process. Embracing the best technology as well as a sleek, minimalist look, the CrossHelmet is enough to make you want to go out and buy a hog today.
The CrossHelmet is a truly intelligent motorcycle helmet with an integrated rear camera and augmented reality, which offers a complete view of what is in front of and behind the rider. Created by engineers with experience developing products such as the Yamaha MT-09 and the Walkman, the CrossHelmet attacks the safety issue of poor visibility by motorcycle riders with a Heads Up Display (HUD) that’s tapped into the rare camera, ensuring 360-degree awareness.
This means the driver can effortlessly see a wide angle behind them, in a fraction of a second and with minimal head movement, enabling a safer and smoother driving experience, while an app that connects a rider’s smartphone to the CrossHelmet via Bluetooth allows users to check battery levels and safety lights, and access maps.
The app also allows you to view information on the head-up display and can show directions to a desired destination, as well as compass heading, weather, time and trip data.
Loud noises can also increase the stress and fatigue of the rider. To solve this problem, CrossHelmet X1 is equipped with CrossSound Control, a patented noise reduction system that is the first of its kind in the motorcycle industry. It uses a system of algorithms to filter out sound. A group chat function also allows the motorcyclist to communicate with multiple people at the same time, even without CrossHelmet, while the helmet’s speakers offer high-quality audio, including calls.
The CrossHelmetX1 is available for pre-order through its Indiegogo InDemand.
