However, every coin has two sides. While we enjoy the fun of cycling, it can also be relatively dangerous, even fatal. Head trauma is one of the worst experiences when coming to the bike accident so it is the utmost importance to wear helmets to protect yourself from injuries and fatal crashes.
With technology dominating every aspect of our lives, the researchers have invented many intelligent helmets which not only help protect our head but also can be multi-functional. Now, I will introduce some smart helmets for you. I am sure that you will change the world of cycling helmets.
1. IC-R smart helmet
This is a helmet that processes an advanced design with high-tech features. It has the Bluetooth communication and phone connectivity, LED displays. This helmet has two rear facing cameras, allowing the rider to see a 210-degree view of his surroundings so that it is no need for the rider to look around the road.

They will light up to warn the rider if there is any possible hazard ahead so that it can help him react to the situation accordingly. This helmet has an outstanding look, dark and black, but shine in design. Moreover, this helmet has other features, such as having a solar panel installed on the top so that it can help charge the equipment intelligently. Besides, it also comes with a small weight that can reduce your head pressure. The most important thing is to save skull in collisions. The helmet is going to hit the market very soon, and this will change your view of the helmet. The price is about to set in $1400. Although it is a little expensive, it is worth the price.
