Just collecting some of my favorite pictures of the Skully Motorcycle Helmet for a review later. To date, this is the best unbiased review on this awesome tech helmet that I have watched. Check out what Chaseontowheels has to say:
What others are saying about this high tech motorcycle helmet:
Everything these days is becoming “smart”. I just saw a “smart” cooking pan the other day online – it’s awesome. It’s just a matter of time until smart helmets become standard, I believe. I think Skully has a long road ahead of them since they are pioneering this path, but I give them major props for what they are trying to achieve.
Most will agree that the price point of their initial model is too expensive, but as an entrepreneur and engineer myself, I understand why they are pricing it as such for their first run. Luckily, their Indigogo funding has proven to them that there is a market for what they are creating and despite their delays in product development/manufacturing, I have high hopes that their company will only go up from here.
I think technology is very important when it comes to rider safety. We all know how dangerous riding is, so anything we can do to improve our chances of survival on two wheels should be welcomed.
In Vancouver, BC, lane splitting is illegal so when I’m at a stop, I always kind of duck my head a bit and watch my mirrors until I’m sure the car behind me is coming to a stop. The 180 degree rear-facing helmet camera that the AR-1 comes with would likely be my favorite feature. I can imagine lane changing would be easier too, though I would probably still shoulder check. But having that extra viewing angle would be really handy. – Thomas Plywaczewski of Lightmode Helmets
