The CrossHelmet X1 is a next generation motorcycle helmet with sound controle and 360° visibility

The Japaneese Full Face Helmet will transform your riding experience

The blind spot is one of the big black spots when riding a motorized. This is why many brands have worked on the subject to try to find a solution, by integrating various technologies into the helmets. If Reevu was the first to imagine a helmet with an integrated mirror, Skully was the first who popularized the use of a rear-facing camera and a HUD to follow what’s going on behind a rider.

While adaptable head-up displays (HUD) focus on navigation, the Japanese brand CrossHelmet is preparing to launch its first full-face helmet with 360° vision on the market: the X1, or Cross One.

We thus find the same concept with the installation of a small camera on the back of the helmet and a HUD allowing you to see the images on the front. But the Japanese helmet goes further and incorporates other complementary technologies for more comfort and above all connectivity.

The visibility also involves the addition of white LED strips on the sides to be better perceived by other users. The integral also uses a noise reduction system “the CrossSound Control” to reduce environmental sounds, adjustable to the rider’s needs. This system works through a touchpad located on the sides, just below the LEDs, for easy control of all audio.

The Crosshelmet remains under the 1.8 kilo bar, which remains above the weight of the majority of modular models and nearly 500 grams more than good integrals.
