Sena has long been one of the leading companies in the realm of wireless motorcycle helmet connectivity. Offering a plethora of Bluetooth devices from which to choose for both full-face and open-face helmets, with a variety of features including rider-to-rider communication, smartphone pairing for placing and receiving phone calls, listening to music and GPS directions, Sena makes wearing a helmet more enjoyable regardless of style or brand. With the introduction of the Cavalry half-helmet Sena is embarking on the most obvious next step in the company’s evolution – integrating its communication technology with its own proprietary helmets.

Enter To Win A Sena 10R Dual Set

The Cavalry is the first salvo of this bold new product line, with a long-promised full-face helmet featuring noise-cancelling technology on its way later this year. If the full-face helmet delivers on its promises as well as the Cavalry has, Sena should have no problem establishing itself as a major motorcycle helmet manufacturer, because the technology powering the Cavalry helmet simply works, and works well.

Affixed to the helmet’s outer left side is Sena’s 10R communication module. All wiring is internal. The built-in, brow-mounted microphone features Sena’s Advanced Noise Control technology for reducing wind noise, while Sena claims the integrated speakers above the ears are of HD quality.

As an all-in-one helmet, the first apparent nicety is its no-assembly-required nature. Once out of the box you simply pair the 10R module with your smartphone, and you’re good to go. With factory installation you also enjoy the benefit of no exposed wiring, affording the Cavalry a clean look.
