BMW has unveiled the design of its latest hi-tech motorcycle helmet, the System 5, which comes with aerodynamic, acoustic and communications features.
The company claims that the helmet is the safest and quietest available. Using riding simulations in its wind tunnel, BMW says it has been able to reduce noise levels inside the helmet to significantly below those in competitors’ helmets. A wireless communication system allows rider and passenger to talk to one another. The helmet launches in mid-2005.
