Fusar Introduces the Mohawk and BRC Helmet Cam System

The Mohawk is Fusar Technologies' newest addition to the product range. Even though at first some might think that the Mohawk is nothing more than yet another helmet cam, this small gadget indeed packs interesting features that make it stand out from the crowd.

For starters, we'll just mention that the Mohawk is hinged at the back, and has an aerodynamic profile. This means no obstacle for opening the visor and less noise and turbulence, increasing the comfort of wearing it.

The Mohawk can be mounted on a helmet of your choice using quick-release mounts compatible with the GoPro ones, and it comes with a 2350 mAh battery that provides up to 4 hours of use. It can also be recharged while in use, so if you're not bothered by a thin power line dangling at the back of your head, you're all set.

Riders will be able to shoot 12MP photos and 1080p video @ 30 or 60 fps, and store the recordings and pics on a MicroSD card. The Mohawk also syncs the content with your smartphone automatically for easy sharing.15-second snippets posted to social media with ease
A special HotShot function allows riders to post 15-second snippets to social media platforms in real time with a simple press of a button, even if the camera is not recording.

Another cool function of the Mohawk is the Cloud-based RiderChat feature that enables push-to-talk (PTT) with up to 12 friends, via the data-enabled smartphone. Obviously, range is no longer an issue, giving the Mohawk an extra edge in mobile communication between riders. Full Bluetooth streaming ensures that listening to music, taking calls or listening to navigation instructions is also on the menu. Crash detection and EMS functionality
The Fusar Mohawk also integrates advanced crash detection technologies and an alert system that will contact first response teams. A text message and an email will be transmitted, alongside a map and GPS coordinates in case of a crash.

At the same time, the Black Box feature will store the last 15 seconds of video and telemetry when a crash is detected, helping riders and authorities deal with the incident.

Pre-ordering the Fusar Mohawk will also get you the BRC remote control, a part that can be easily attached to the bike's left grip and that provides you with comfortable wireless access to some of the functions. The remote is waterproof and thanks to the Bluetooth Low Energy technology, a charge can last for up to 12 months.

The MSRP for the Mohawk/BRC package is $500 (€452), but you still have a day or so to make a $50 (€45) deposit and secure yours at a promotional price of $200 (€180), initially offered at AIMExpo only. Shipping expected in Q3 2016.
