Cross Helmet

Post by WingAdmin » Tue Sep 05, 2017 7:24 pm



Has anyone seen this helmet before?

http://crosshelmet.com/

This weird looking helmet has a bunch of features built in:

- Navigation heads-up display
- Rear view camera
- Music playback/sound control
- Safety light
- Bluetooth / group intercom

Nowhere on the website however does it mention safety in terms of crashworthiness or certifications, and given the shape of the thing, I kind of doubt I'd want to hit the ground face first in it (which is the most common impact position).

I had enough at...
"Normal motorcycle helmets are so last century."
ALL the visuals are way too busy for me for JUST riding.
I'll stick with my LAST CENTURY mirrors and BEANIE 1/2 helmet.

Know its new taste and be loyal, you'll know when to change that oil.
Taste testing as those miles flow, souring as that acid grows.
And don't flirt with dirt or darkened oil, all the faster your engine will spoil.

Well that's a Pooter-Pucker Phigure.
(BEVIS) "YEH-YEH he said pooter."
:lol:
A few nice TOYS inside tho. Pavement face smack would be expensive.

Other note....
Running through Flea Markets and yard sales I notice undamaged late model helmets for sale.
Now I'm of OLD style DOT helmets where "hair to helmet skin" is about 1 inch. The ones I'm seeing are TWO INCHES!
REALLY, 2 INCHES? (i don't store shop helmets)

That enactment is really distracting. The helmet is way too busy for me, aside from the price. I believe I will forego seeing what is behind me and pay attention to what is in front, with the occasional glance in the mirrors which are where they are supposed to be on my bike.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey

I suppose for an old fart I am still into pretty techy stuff, but this thing is way too "busy" and way out of my current fixed income price range! :shock:

Yup. My new Arai is like this. The more space there is between the helmet shell and your own shell, means the helmet can spread the energy over a longer amount of time (as the EPS compresses), which reduces the G forces ultimately being imparted to your brain.

These kinds of gadgets are absolutely NOT needed. The only thing that matters is how well that helmet has been manufactured and its ability to protect you in the event of an accident. The manufacturers obviously have no regard at all for those of us who love to ride our motorcycles.

There are lots of people out there who buy 'the latest' gadgets as soon as they come out and the manufacturers know this. The manufacturers of these helmets know this and are putting helmets like this out there because of GREED.

There are only two things that I want in a helmet: the best in safety, and a wireless mic so that my husband and I can communicate with each other when we're out on a long ride.

Wow, I want one. Guess I will wait until some one buys it, then finds out they hate it, and I can buy it for 150.00. turn off the hud and listen to Mozart while seeing the sights. :mrgreen:
