Part I of this two-part article on the safety improvements of using a motorcycle helmet with integrated Bluetooth was about the disadvantages of using a traditional helmet with earbuds and a microphone.
Here are some examples showing the improved safety of using a Hawk Bluetooth helmet instead of the traditional choice: My cell phone was in my vest pocket because I was confident that I could hear an incoming call, so I was not constantly looking at my phone and my eyes were on the road a lot more frequently thereby making it the safer choice. Also, because of the Hawk’s design in general, and especially with the chin pad that helps to enclose the helmet, the microphone works consistently and it worked well with voice commands, which kept my eyes on the road.
Additionally, with the large button that is used for a lot of the most common functions on the Hawk Bluetooth device, it lessened the amount of time my hands were off the bars. I could quickly locate the button and tap it in just one quick motion. The volume buttons on the Bluetooth helmet are also designed to click wearing gloves, so there was less time with my hand off of the handlebars.
These are just a few of the reasons why the Hawk Bluetooth motorcycle helmet is safer than a traditional helmet rigged with earbuds and a microphone. And again, when you look at how inexpensive this DOT approved Bluetooth helmet is, it makes sense to make the change from a traditional helmet with earbuds and a microphone. You can find the Hawk motorcycle helmet with a Hawk Bluetooth bundle on LeatherUp.com.
