New company launches technology-packed motorcycle helmets

Published: 11 July 2018

A new company, Jarvish, are planning to introduce two of the most technology-packed motorcycle helmets we’ve ever seen.

The Taiwanese firm are developing two fully-carbon-fibre helmets; the X and the X-AR and are already supplying thousands of members of the public and hundreds of police officers in Taiwan with their original smart helmet.

Both the new X and X-AR are ECE 22.05 approved and come equipped with a 2K built-in front camera, as well as built-in speakers and a microphone.

A rear camera and head-up display

The X-AR has the added bonus of featuring a rear camera and a head-up display unit, capable of showing information on speed, weather conditions and navigation, set-up via the Jarvish app.

Audible directions are also available for the X model, with every feature on both helmets activated using your voice.

In a statement, CEO of Jarvish, Jeremy Lu, said: "The X and X-AR do not replace the need for smart, safe riding. Our vision is to enhance the motorcycling experience with smart features that mean a rider can focus on the road ahead without distraction.

"It's about enhancing the motorcycling experience"

"We have combined the ultimate rider benefits with a stylish, lightweight helmet for motorcyclists who love their technology as much as the journey.”

The lid also has 16GB of memory as standard, stored on a removable memory card, with cards as large as 256GB also available. There is Bluetooth and WiFi capability and battery life is anticipated to be around four hours.

Due to be introduced later this year, the cheaper X helmet is thought to cost around £500 and will be available through Amazon, with the fully-packed X-AR expected in the first half of 2019 and costing somewhere in the region of £1000.
