The Forcite MK1S smart helmet, a product of innovation from the Australian company Forcite. This helmet is not just a protective gear, but a technological marvel that enhances your motorcycle riding experience.

Born from the vision of Alfred Boyadgis, the co-founder and CEO of Forcite, after a motorcycle accident, the MK1S is designed to provide riders with a safer and more informed ride. The helmet comes with in-built speakers, a camera, and a heads-up display, making it one of the smartest helmets in the market today.

The latest iteration, the MK1S, has taken the lessons learned from the original MK1 and evolved into a more refined product. The most notable feature of the MK1S is the Harmon Kardon audio system that delivers crisp sound through its in-built speakers. It also includes a built-in microphone and a camera that captures high-definition 1080p footage at 30fps or 60fps.

The MK1S is also equipped with a navigation system and provides warnings for potential hazards, all controlled through a smartphone application and a Bluetooth controller that can be mounted on the handlebar. The helmet itself is a composite carbon-fibre shell, with a standard comfort liner and a premium 3D foam liner. It is ECE 22.05 approved and weighs in at an impressive 1550g.

The Forcite MK1S is priced at AED 4770. This includes the helmet, a bag, a USBC charging cable, a charging adapter, a Bluetooth controller and mounting system, and a Forcite ‘maintenance’ tool. A range of accessories is also available for purchase.

Despite the high price tag, the MK1S offers value for money considering the features it provides. The helmet’s technology, comfort, style, and safety make it a worthwhile investment for any rider. The audio system provides clear sound quality, and the camera setup is perfect for moto-vloggers.

While the MK1S is a remarkable product, it does have a few areas for improvement. The setup can be a bit complicated, and it currently lacks voice control or wireless media transfer. However, these are minor issues compared to the overall benefits the helmet provides.

In conclusion, if you’re looking for a helmet that offers more than just protection, the Forcite MK1S is worth considering. It’s not just a helmet; it’s a smart device that enhances your riding experience. Available exclusively on XBYKE in the UAE, the Forcite MK1S is leading the way in smart helmet technology.
