Sena Releases Three New Helmets With Built-in Comms

Stryker and Impulse, the Smart Helmet components of Sena’s Quantum Series of motorcycle communications products, are ready for the road. Although both Sena helmets are packed with innovative communications technology, Stryker is a full-face design priced at $549, while Impulse is a modular, or flip-face design, costing $699. Both shells are a composite fiberglass construction, with a plush, acoustically designed liner next to your head. What better way to show off the premium Sound By Harmon Kardon that streams through the high-tech speakers and microphone?

The smarts don’t stop there. These intelligent devices have a voice-activated capability to connect with either Google Assistant or Siri, and use voice commands to the helmets themselves, allowing a rider to use both hands to control the bike. Sena’s motorcycle app lets you easily configure your helmet’s settings, plus they understand eight languages.

At the rear are two other helpful features, an LED taillight to help drivers notice you and a magnetic charging port that supports WiFi for obtaining automatic software updates.

You’d expect Sena to provide excellent communications and tech, and these two helmets won’t disappoint. You can chat with your riding pals up to 1.2 miles away in open terrain using either Bluetooth intercom or Sena’s Mesh system. Mesh can extend that distance to 5 miles in a group of six or more riders. In Open Mesh, you can select from nine comms channels.

For those not requiring all the smarts of the Quantum club, Sena offers an alternative for $249. The Outforce is a full-face helmet with a convenient Sena Bluetooth communication system built-in. The DOT-rated helmet comes with the speakers and microphone integrated and is ready to go out of the box, with no installation required. Chat with riding partners using four-way Bluetooth intercom, or pair a smartphone to stream music, hear turn-by-turn GPS directions, or take a phone call. An intuitive three-button control is located on the left-hand side of the helmet for easy helmet operation.

Whichever you choose and wherever you ride, Sena’s Smart Helmets are ready to take you to new levels of motorcycling connectivity.

Arden has been riding loaded dual-sports and adventure bikes into the backcountry since high school, following a single goal of camping in the middle of nowhere. With stints as a whitewater river guide and National Park Service seasonal in Utah behind him, Arden favors the red rock country, but also enjoys the Mojave Desert and wide open spaces of Nevada. Based in Santa Barbara, California, he has shared stories of his adventures, as well as tests of motorcycles and accessories, in print and on the web for the past 25 years. In that time he’s worn out two Kawasaki KLR 650s and is currently stirring up the dust on his BMW F 800 GS and Suzuki DR-Z 400S.
