Default Coolest new helmet technology in a long time! Akuma.

I was at the big dealer expo in Indy this past weekend. Lots of new products, some cool, lots crap.

This one however caught my attention. This is the coolest new helmet product I've seen in many years. This is the first time I've gone to Indy and ordered a new product on the spot.

Electro-chromatic visor.

Intergrated rechargable battery, LED lighting, bluetooth built in the shell, tint on demand powered visors. This is cool stuff!

Its powered by a rechargable battery built in their helmets. The helmets have LED lighting built in them, and are soon to come out with an optional built in Blue Tooth headset, all powered by this battery.

These are rated the ECE rating (as required in MotoGP - higher rating than Snell).

Patman if you decide you want one of these gimme a buzz, I'll cut you a break on one if you'll write me back later and tell me what you think.

Depending on which helmet you want I can take care of you pretty well. I made a pretty sweet deal with them since I"m part of a big company with a lot of buying power.

As for a USMC one, the CFO of the company was a jarhead F-18 jock I think, so you would think that would be on his list... but I have no inside knowledge.
