Whether on a trip alone or with friends: On a motorcycle, communicating with each other or even just with the navigation system is quite complicated. A motorcycle intercom can help. The requirements for this can be very different. Every biker should first consider what use the device should be suitable for.
Helmexpress offers the following communication systems
As well as our branded headsets:
With communication systems for the motorcycle, riders can stay in touch with other bikers while riding. If you are traveling alone, you can give instructions to the navigation system. This makes driving much safer. You can navigate without having to take your eyes off the road, and passengers can also use their driving distance to point out dangerous spots on the route.
Since motorcycle headsets with in-ear speakers are forbidden according to the road traffic regulations, speakers that are openly built into the helmet offer the legally compliant and practical alternative.
The advantages of modern Bluetooth technology:
Anyone who opts for a motorcycle Bluetooth headset should first know how many call participants are to be added. With some devices, conference calls with up to 16 motorcyclists can be made via Bluetooth. In this way, even large groups can be easily integrated into the conversation.
Especially when long tours are planned, the battery of the headset for motorcycle should last long enough. A battery life of 10 to 13 hours is therefore a good choice. If necessary, additional batteries can be taken along. However, if you rarely go on short tours, you can easily fall back on helmet headphones with shorter running times.
For every tour on the motorcycle it is important that the audio quality and range of the device are optimal. In particular, poor quality can distract from the journey and thus impair safety. This also includes the fact that the microphone filters out the airstream. A long range has several advantages. So you can talk about the resulting distance even in larger groups. But the safety aspect also plays a major role, as the following bikers can be made aware of obstacles and dangers via motorcycle intercom systems. Some devices offer a range of 2 kilometers on open roads. With that you are guaranteed to be well armed.
The operation of the motorcycle intercom should also have an influence on the purchase decision. When driving with motorcycle gloves on, some devices are less easy to operate. However, this disturbs the concentration and thus also the security. Motorcycle radios with rotary knobs or voice control are therefore recommended.
Systems for helmet communication are integrated into the motorcycle helmet. In most cases this should be straightforward. If the helmet has recesses for loudspeakers in the inner padding, it is very easy to attach. Otherwise it should be checked whether the speaker brackets still have enough space without pressing or blocking your hearing.
Attention: With open face helmets it should be noted that the motorcycle headset must withstand the additional wind.
To install the motorcycle hands-free kit in the helmet, the helmet pads must first be removed. If necessary, the headphones are glued into the recesses provided in the helmet. The connection unit for the Bluetooth connection is attached to the outside of the helmet. This part should be placed on a smooth part of the helmet so that it is easily accessible and usable. The microphone should be attached to the side of the mouth in the helmet. Otherwise, breathing sounds are transmitted every time you speak. Cables can be easily fixed inside the helmet with adhesive tape or hidden between the pads.
