AIMExpo2017 took place over the weekend and companies across our industry threw down their latest and greatest toys just like you'd expect. Honestly, that's a good part of the reason why people go. We magazine folk can yammer on all we want to you in our test reviews but there's nothing better than seeing a cool new part or accessory in real life for yourself. Sena Technologies showed off its 30K Mesh Intercom and Momentum Smart Helmets at the event. If you didn't get to the expo yourself, here's an overview of both products instead.
30K Mesh Intercom Communication System
Rev up your ride with mesh intercom technology, the next generation of motorcycle communication. With one click of a button, seamlessly connect to a virtually unlimited number of riders within a mile range using the 30K’s public mode feature. When a rider from the group falls out of range, the rest of the group remains seamlessly connected thanks to the self healing aspect of Sena’s mesh technology. In private mode a rider can create a group with up to 16 riders and an endless amount of guests can listen in. The 30K is still Bluetooth 4.1 compatible and able to connect to up to 3 other Sena and non-Sena Bluetooth device. In addition to the technological advance of mesh technology the 30K packs the same feature set as previous Sena devices such as audio multitasking, take and make phone calls, listen to music, hear turn-by-turn GPS direction, and much more. The 30K will be available in early Q4 2017 and retails for $329 single / $579 dual pack.
