Cycling is becoming more and more popular as a modern lifestyle; people's requirements for a cycling helmet has been more
stringent as well. Helmet now not only provides you with safety but redefines your entertainment. Smart helmet thus comes in our
sight. Compared to traditional helmets, smart helmets feature LED lights, Bluetooth connections and position sensors, etc. in addition
to the robust helmet body.
However, with numerous smart helmet brands and diverse functions, what you should pay attention to, and how you can balance
needs and quality well when making a purchase? We might guide you through this topic in the following discussion.
The fundamental requirement of a smart helmet is still the protection, the same goes for the traditional one. Protection mainly comes
from its shell materials, affecting the impact resistance significantly. The shell of a smart cyclinghelmet is usually made of PC
(polyethylene) and PVC (polyvinyl chloride). In practical use, PC is usually used for integral molding helmet, while PVC is generally used
for non-integral molding helmet. Integrated molding refers to the molding of the PC shell and foam material into the molding machine to
form the product at one time. The non-integral molding means that the foam is molded first, then the PC or PVC blister shell is coated
on the foam. The difference between the two lies in that the integrated helmet made of PC material is durable and cold-resistant, even
in weather less than 10 degrees below zero; while the PVC material is not cold-resistant, and its thermal stability and impact resistance
Besides the robustness, we also expect the helmet to be as light as possible. A helmet weighing less than 500g would be a good choice.
With many intelligent features to support, the smart helmet must be equipped with a powerful battery. In this case, you should well
consider the battery sources, the charging time as well as the lasting time. The lithium battery is always set inside the smart helmet.
For example, the intelligent helmet from LIVALL has a battery capacity of 3.7V/380mAH (1.4WH). Less than three-hour charging could
be sufficient to support a ten-hour full operation with lights and music turning on. This could perfectly cater to cyclists' needs to go on
a long-distance riding.
Being a cycling beginner or a professional, they should put the safety issues before everything else. Hardware features, including the
materials, are one thing, software features (the protection functions) are another to be focused on. The smart helmet has a perfect
performance in this field with various safety functions. First, the riding indicators. Some smart helmets have the automatic LED lights
to guard a safe night riding. The light could turn on automatically when sensing the turning, and different light modes are available
depending on individual needs. Second is the falling detection. A sensor inserted in the smart helmet, some emergency could be
detected, and the protection measures come afterward. Last but not least, the SOS alert, which allows cyclists to send an emergency
message to people in the contact list. Both the cyclists and their family could set their minds at ease, knowing the safety situation
at any time. Some more functions are available as long as you have clearly thought about the safety level you want to get.
Since the smart helmet provides not only safety but also joyfulness, it's of vital importance to focus on entertainment solutions.
Linking with mobiles through bluetooth as a basic requirement, some smart helmets are even equipped with other functions like
a walkie-talkie to communicate with companions, a specific app to record and share the cycling life, etc. But as for a reminder,
those additional functions must give in to the requirement of safety. If a contradiction occurs, for example, the loud music from
your smart helmet has affected you sensing the surrounding, safety should be placed first.
Design of the smart helmet is not only for attractive appearance but specific performance. Some fluid design of the smart helmet
appearance could help enhance the cycling speed and reduce the air resistance. The air holes on the smart helmet are designed
for disseminating those heat to remain a cool state while riding. Some smart helmets even have a soft lining design to fit for
different head sizes. In a word, those small details on the smart helmet design matter a lot to the comfortable feel of riding.
Besides the five factors mentioned above, a big brand is of equal essentialness. The brand together with its certificates can speak
for its reliability. For example, LIVALL is just the world's first smart and safe cycling helmet brand, who has been dedicated to smart
sports equipment and specialized in the development of smart helmets, riding community App, Nano cadence sensor, smart bicycle,
and smart accessories. The Bling Helmet BH60SE from it is a type of multi-functional lightweight helmet, which can meet your general
requirement. The hands-free operations, smart lighting, fall detection, press for SOS, one-click answer, PPT walkie-talkie, etc. are of
high-humanization. With this type of smart helmet, you could feel free to enjoy a delightful riding.
You might now have more knowledge of smart helmets and become more clear of your purchasing standard. As for a start, LIVALL
would be the right choice.
