The technological age has brought upon a dawn of a new age in communication for cyclists by keeping you connected and safe on the road. As an avid motorcyclist, I can attest to the fact that Bluetooth helmets are a great advancement in technology. As you can imagine, it is impossible to talk or text on a motorcycle without a Bluetooth helmet. Bluetooth helmets are well worth the investment because they keep you safe and connected at the same time.
The dawn of a new age
As the bluetooth era rises, technology has made it easy to take calls during long rides or slow cruises. So how do you pick the right headset? It should suit your cruising style, safety standards, and what you feel is comfortable while suiting your budget as well. You don’t want to buy a product that is too expensive for the quality you are getting, or too little for a product that lacks in quality due to it being an actual hazard to yourself and others.
You need to be able to pay attention to the road while you’re talking with minimum interference. If you’re a cruiser and like to take it slow, wind and outside interference are there but not as prominent as when you’re on long rides on the interstate in 5 o’clock traffic. You don’t need a
Bluetooth helmet that cuts out all the noise such as honking, which can signal danger or something else, but you also need to be able to hear who you are talking with.
Either way, you cut it, Bluetooth helmets do cost quite an amount of money even for the cheaper ones. Don’t sacrifice your safety with a made helmet that isn’t sturdy enough to help protect you if something were to happen. Some helmets sacrifice quality to quantity.
The major mistake
Many bluetooth headsets have systems already installed or are bluetooth capable. The helmets that are Bluetooth capable are less expensive than pre-installed helmets. However, pre-installed helmets are a lot less of a hassle than dealing with the installation. Don’t let the price determine your product; this is a common mistake when buying bluetooth helmets.
The comfort factor
It can be confusing to pick out which helmet is best for you with all the differences in price, but also you need to consider the comfort factor as well. You don’t want an uncomfortable, heavy helmet because you have the latest in Bluetooth devices. You want to make sure that the helmet is light-weight, and that you can see completely clear as well as not being too hot and stuffy. If you have to shell out another 50-60$ to find something that is comfortable to you, you know as well as I do that it is worth the money.
Freedom at Last
Bluetooth devices give you freedom while contributing to road safety and of course your safety. You should always do your homework before buying any motorcycle-related products and should only buy from brands and stores that you trust. Doing your research is the best thing you can do when trying to find an adequate Bluetooth helmet.
