Sena has released its first modular helmet with built-in intercom, but Australians will have to wait for the Outrush as it has still not been Euro-approved for sale here.
At the moment it is only DOT approved for North American markets.
There is no announcement yet on how long Aussie and European riders will have to wait or how much it will cost.
I have reviewed and recommend both the Sena Momentum Lite full face and Savage open-face helmets.
In the US, the Outrush comes in matte black and gloss white in sizes small through extra large for just $US199 (about $A280).
That’s amazing since the Savage costs $US299 (about $A421) and is available here for $A499.
So the Outrush should only cost in the low $A300s.
Yet it comes with all the features of the other helmets with integrated Sena Bluetooth technology.
- They include:
- HD Intercom Mode
- Bluetooth 3.0 integration
- Smartphone connectivity
- 2-way Intercom
- 800m range
- 15 hours talk time
- 3-hour charge time
- 5-year warranty
The modular helmet comes with a retractable sun visor, multi-density EPS liner and three-way ventilation.
It has a quick-release ratchet strap instead of a D-ring for quick and easy fastening and removal.
Fans of modular helmets like their practicality, versatility and ease of putting them on and taking them off wth your glasses still on.
Some say they can also fill up at the servo without having to remove the helmet.
However, there may be issues with the helmets not having the safe structural integrity of a full-face helmet.
