RESONAR’s Bat 8D Technology for the Helmet Industry 

Having 360-degree hearing enhances awareness and proprioception while riding.

“If we ride with both our eyes open, then why would we choose to ride a motorcycle with both ears closed?” said co-founder Felipe Morales of RESONAR, located in Miami. 

The human sensory systems have evolved to provide us with two eyes and two ears to assist us in proprioception — our sense of self-movement, force, and body position and location. However, as soon as one of our senses is closed off while riding, like our ears while wearing a three-quarter- or full-faced helmet, we lose a significant degree of awareness. RESONAR’s bat 8D technology restores the ability to hear hidden threats once again, providing for a safer riding condition … or a more sensitive “directionality” should one be racing near other racers on a track. 

Mr. Michel Wehe, RESONAR’s co-founder, commented, “We are on the road around the globe this fall to show the world what we can do to make a difference in enhancing the experience of riding, becoming more competitive if racing while also saving lives. Download our new 2023 brochure, which explains our promise, our vision and our technology for a world of restored and reconnected hearing while riding a motorcycle.”

Wehe also stated RESONAIR would be entering into a significant “beta test phase” with over 100 traffic patrolmen and women using the RESONAR bat 8D equipped helmets in traffic while on the job in Colombia. Note that RESONAR’s bat 8D technology works with attenuated ear plugs and intercom devices.

RESONAR will be participating in the upcoming EICMA and Safety 2022 World Health Organization’s (WHO) World Conference on Injury Prevention & Safety Promotion, all happening this fall of 2022. The RESONAR team is meeting with helmet factories, helmet brands, traffic safety organizations and motorcycle editors about new developments as this ride-enhancing technology comes to market. 

Helmet innovations like ventilation, communications, dual-density EPS liners, rotational acceleration suppression technologies, fog-free and solar-darkening face shields, and moisture-absorbing liners all vastly improve comfort and protection. Yet, the rider’s ears remain covered with three-quarter- and full-faced helmets. The world has overlooked one of our fundamentally necessary senses and its incredible contribution to being a safer and more “connected” rider to the constantly changing environment around us. We know that earbuds, headphones and loud music disconnects us from our external environment. RESONAR bat 8D technology, with no batteries, reconnects us for a more enhanced ride while improving our awareness of peripheral threats without changing or diminishing the protection provided by the certified helmet.
