Australian smart helmet maker Forcite is launching in the UK, starting with its MK1S lid.
It’s a lightweight (1500g) full-face ECE22.05 and DOT-approved helmet with a carbon fibre outer shell and a series of useful electronics already built in. There’s a chin-mount 1080P action camera, Harman-Kardon speakers with dual microphones, and a peripheral LED display system that sends signals to the rider about navigation, speed traps, mobile cameras, and traffic alerts. It’s controlled via a smartphone app and a supplied handlebar controller, charges via USB-C, and links with Bluetooth 5.0. The lid’s battery lasts about seven hours and charges in 90 minutes. Forcite has also signed a deal with Aldo Drudi for some subtle new paint designs going forward.
£929 (normal price)
£1299 (Drudi Nexus edition)
