Borderless Inc. will present, for the first time at EICMA 2018, the new CrossHelmet X1. The helmet features a 360° field of vision thanks to the integrated rear-camera and augmented reality HUD.
Safety is of the utmost importance to a motorcyclist. CrossHelmet engineers, with experience developing products such as the Yamaha MT-09 and the Walkman, understand this and designed a technological helmet that combines safety and beautiful design.
Blind spots are completely eliminated in this new helmet thanks to the revolutionary CrossHelmet Augmented Reality technology. An integrated rear view camera projects the images directly onto a head-up display so that the motorcyclist no longer has to look away from the road to see the vehicles through the motorcycle mirrors. With this new CrossHelmet technology, the driver can effortlessly see a wide angle behind him, in a fraction of a second and with minimal head movement, enabling a safer and smoother driving experience.
An app that connects your smartphone to CrossHelmet via Bluetooth allows users to check battery levels and safety lights and access maps. The app allows you to view information on the head-up display and show directions to your desired destination, compass, weather, time and trip data.
Loud noises can increase the stress and fatigue of the rider. To solve this problem, CrossHelmet X1 is equipped with CrossSound Control, a patented noise reduction system that is the first of its kind in the motorcycle industry. It uses a system of algorithms to filter out sound distractions such as road, engine and wind noise, while maintaining the acoustic signals necessary for the rider’s safety.
With CrossHelmetX1, you can also use voice commands without needing to touch your smartphone and without stopping, in fact, riders can access Siri or OK Google and can talk on the phone when traveling with other friends and communicate with multiple riders simultaneously.
A group chat function also allows the motorcyclist to communicate with multiple people at the same time, even without CrossHelmet. The helmet’s speakers offer high quality music, podcasts / radios and phone calls
