Though the company originally launched as a purveyor of Bluetooth communications systems, Sena has since ventured into the action camera and motorcycle helmet market with a slew of tech-integrated smart helmets. And after the company’s original Momentum model helmet was met with a more-than-warm public reception, Sena has now opted to introduce an updated variant of the smart helmet with the new Momentum Evo Mark II.
Starting on the outside, the helmet features a new, more oval shape for a snugger fit, along with a re-contoured profile with an improved drag coefficient. Inside, the Mark II gets a redesigned multi-density EPS liner, chin curtain, and pads for bolstered safety and comfort, plus a revised and free-er-flowing ventilation system. The helmet comes fitted with integrated speakers and mic, though in addition to Bluetooth 4.1, the Mark II also utilizes a Mesh intercom system enabling users to communicate with up to 15 other riders with a range of up to 5 miles. Other noteworthy elements consist of Voice Command, audio multi-tasking, and remote control capabilities, FM radio receiver, Sena’s Advanced Noise Control technology, and 17 hours of talk time. On top of coming with a pin-lock-ready/equipped visor, this Bluetooth helmet also includes Sena’s Intelligent WiFi cable which charges the helmet, while simultaneously scanning for automatic firmware updates. Offered only in matte black, this DOT and ECE-certified helmet sells for $399.
