Helmet manufacturing company Schuberth revealed its collaboration plans with Sena that will make communicating, navigating and listening to music easier and better for its products. And their first product will be shown this October at INTERMOT in Cologne.
"Within a very short period of time, Sena developed a communication system with us that will set new standards in the industry,” said Jan-Christian Becker, CEO of the Schuberth Group. “We will be presenting the system and two new helmets at the INTERMOT show in Cologne.”
Modern helmets have made it easier to integrate communication systems within their shells, and Schubert has been setting the pace for quite some time now when coming to such devices.
The INTERMOT 2016 exhibit will showcase Schuberth’s new helmet co-developed with Sena, and, according to both parties, their product is said to set new standards in combining safety, comfort, and technology.
"Schuberth and Sena are similar in many respects. Both are innovative, rank among the technology leaders and place great importance on customer satisfaction. Together, we'll inject fresh impetus into the field of in-helmet communication," Sena CEO Tae Kim also said.
For now, the Schuberth M1 helmet is the first helmet (and only one at the moment) on the market that comes equipped with microphones and loudspeakers by default to allow easy installation of plug-and-play communication systems.
The helmet’s shell is made out of fiberglass mixed and pressed into the shape along with a special resin under high temperature and pressure. The inner shell is made out of EPS foam with aeration channels to provide adequate ventilation. The helmet can be had in seven exterior shades, while the visor is offered in 5 of them.
As mentioned, speakers and microphones are already installed and are away from sight; the only thing left to do is to clip the SRC-System into the special recess at the back and enjoy communication, turn-by-turn navigation, music and phone calls.
