Sena Announces The Release Of The Highly Anticipated R1 Bluetooth® Road Cycling Helmet


Protection Meets Technology With The Sleek R1 Road Cycling Helmet By Sena

IRVINE, Calif., July 23, 2018 — Sena, the industry leader in Bluetooth innovation for the motorsports, action sports, and outdoor activities markets, announces the release of the R1 Bluetooth Integrated Road Cycling helmet. We introduced the X1, the world’s first fully integrated Bluetooth cycling helmet, and now the R1 will pack the same breakthrough communication technology in a sleek new helmet shape.

The R1 offers Bluetooth 4.1 technology to pair your smartphone and hear GPS directions, listen to music, take phone calls, and even hear instant feedback and cues from fitness apps monitoring stats such as speed, cadence, and heart rate without distraction. The R1’s fully integrated Bluetooth communication system allows users to talk via intercom with up to three other riders over a half mile distance. Open-Ear audio functionality combined with Sena’s unique communication technology will elevate any ride.

“Whether cyclists are training for their next big race, or simply enjoying a ride with family, the R1 offers user-friendly communication solutions in any situation,” said Sena CEO Tae Kim. “Helmet to helmet communication along with smartphone connectivity offer users endless possibilities when riding with the all new R1.”

Riders can navigate through the helmet’s features with the 3-button control integrated directly onto helmet. Speakers placed above the ear offer a safer alternative to riding with in-ear buds. The R1 is designed with an in-mold polycarbonate shell, and will soon be available featuring MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection) Technology.

Sena offers a two year warranty for issues with the technology within the R1. Future firmware updates will keep your R1 up to date with the latest software from Sena.

The R1 will retail for $229 (€259, including VAT), while the MIPS version will retail for $249 (€279, including VAT). The helmets can be purchased directly through Sena at and be sure to ask for the R1 at cycling retailers nationwide.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
