SANTA CRUZ, Calif. - Bell Helmets announced at the 2012 Long Beach International Motorcycle Show the release of the Mag-9 Sena, an open-face helmet designed specifically to accommodate the Sena SMH10 Bluetooth® stereo headset communications system. Bell is the first helmet manufacturer to integrate a docking system for the SMH10 system, allowing convenient attachment.
The Mag-9 Sena allows riders to remove the helmet's dock cover and easily insert and attach the Sena Bluetooth SMH10 communication system without compromising the fit.
"Our Santa Cruz design/engineering team spent countless hours studying the market before developing this new design that provides an unmatched riding experience in terms of both sound and comfort," said Chris Sackett, Business Unit Director for Bell Powersports.
With enhanced fit and upgraded features, such as a smoother shield operation, the Mag-9 Sena is built with a tough lightweight, polycarbonate shell. The helmet can be worn in multiple configurations, as the rider can choose to ride with or without the shield and visor. In addition, the Mag-9 Sena offers a fast and easy tool-free shield change, which has an optional drop-down sunshield.
The Sena SMH10 is a Bluetooth 3.0 stereo headset with a long-range Bluetooth intercom designed specifically for motorcycles. The SMH10 provides a hands-free ride, as it will sync with the rider's Bluetooth mobile phone, and allow them to listen to stereo music or voice instructions of GPS navigations by Bluetooth wirelessly. Additionally, the device provides intercom conversations in full duplex with a passenger or other riders.
The Mag-9 Sena is available for $179.95, while the Sena single system is $209.95 and the dual system is $379.95. The Mag-9 Sena is DOT Certified, weighs 1200 grams and comes in sizes ranging from XS to XXL. More information can be found by visiting BellHelmets.com and SenaBluetooth.com.
