Motorcycle tech you need to see

Every now and again in the world of the two-wheeled pocket rocket we see some complete innovation in products, from air-bag integrated leathers smart helmets. But more times than not these turn out to be expensive and less than necessary for the average everyday rider. 

However, sometimes there are new products that catch our eye and for all the right reasons...

They're affordable...

They're useful...

And they actually serve a need of real bikers!

So below we picked out 3 of these innovative motorcycle products and explained why we think they're so useful.

1. LightMode helmet kits

Ofcourse, we're biased here at LDM so we'll start with our very own product. LightMode helmet light kits were the coolest new tech to enter the industry back in 2015 and that's for a good reason.

The original kits cost only £90, and they actually did something useful for us. Keeping us safe by being more visible on the road.

In simplistic terms they light up your helmet in any shape or pattern that you design. With the latest LightMode kits being rechargeable and water-resistant you can expect to see more bikers wearing them on UK roads soon.

2. Motorcycle rear view cameras

Rear view cameras for a motorcycle are a novel idea. But more than just novel, they caught our eye as a real gap that is missing from the world of motorcycling.

Nowadays every bike has fuel injection, ECU mapping options, and more tech than your smartphone. But they don't have rear view cameras.

So we're adding this to our list of motorcycle tech you need to see as we feel like it could just be the next big thing. 

3. Scala PackTalk

We've all seen a motorcycle intercom before right? Just not with this much tech.

Well, Scala has now bought intercoms into the new age with their latest innovation in the Scala PackTalk bold. See the write up below for more details:

PackTalk is the top of the Scala Rider range with a list of features that covers your every need if you are looking for a versatile headset system to make riding with your group a lot easier and more enjoyable. Utilising the Cardo DMC technology the PackTalk allows for up to 15 riders to communicate at one time.

Bluetooth is also included in the PackTalk with a full-duplex system so you can connect to not only other Cardo units but also non-Cardo bluetooth headsets up to a mile away.

DMC is a new age technology developed by Cardo to completely change how group riders communicate with each other. Instead of the traditional Bluetooth 'daisy-chain' intercom connection, the group is connected in a dynamic network to ensure that communication remains uninterrupted at all times. In SMARTPACK's DMC Intercom mode, a group of 4 riders can communicate at a remarkable range of up to 5 miles / 8 km, and any of the members can leave / join the group, or receive incoming phone calls at any given time, without compromising the conversation for the rest of the group.
