Pick Of The Week: Viper RS-V171 BL+ 3.0 Bluetooth Helmet

The Viper RS-V171 is just like the rest of the Viper helmets range; offering premium features at a price that's far from premium...

As technology keeps advancing in the world and even in motorcycles with Honda prototyping a self balancing bike and talk of BMW's autonomous bike, it seems like motorcycle clothing should be following suit but sometimes it can feel like it's dropping behind the rest of the tech world. Although bluetooth isn't exactly a new advancement in tech it still doesn't appear as standard in as many motorcycle helmets as we think it should, since we'd all love to be able to stay connected and listen to music or GPS inside our helmets. Which is why the new Viper RS-V171 BL+ is our Pick Of The Week.

The RS-V171 is a flip up shell helmet with an integrated bluetooth headset system complete with a boom microphone and 2 HD audio speakers mounted in the lining. Viper are known for their innovation in the entry level clothing world and as exciting as the RS-V171 sounds, this is actually their 3rd bluetooth integrated helmet and is a direct update on the RS-V151 with this new updated version including a much more user friendly control unit and more powerful bluetooth connectivity.

A one button control unit makes everything possible from connecting to your phone or GPS, connecting to a pillion or friends bluetooth helmet and adjusting the speaker volume it can all be done with the touch of a button even while wearing your gloves. Connecting to other riders in your group is simple plus a 650m intercom range means even if you smoked them at the lights you can still keep in touch from ahead. Using a system that's compatible with any other universal bluetooth device, Viper have made it possible to connect the RS-V171 with handlebar remote controls and other intercom systems.

If you're a tourer and need something low maintenance then the 8 hour in-use battery life should sound attractive, but when the battery does go flat no need to worry or remove parts from the helmet just plug it in using the micro USB port in the liner and charge it off any powered USB. Sticking with tourers, the standard visor comes pinlock ready with an insert included and the drop down sun visor adds another perk to this lid for those low sun evening rides.

If you still haven't clicked through to check the price on this sports-tourers dream helmet then you'll probably be pleasantly surprised to know that the Viper RS-V171 is priced at just £189.99 . For under £200 Viper offer a pretty tempting helmet in the RS-V171 especially for riders who are looking for something a bit more versatile and don't have the budget for a separate bluetooth system; the colour range covers the most desired designs but does feature something different in their Gloss black and Yellow spine design.
