With the addition of Sena’s DWO-5 Bluetooth technology, the BiLT Techno 2.0 Bluetooth Modular Helmet continues its reign as the most technological modular helmet on the market. Ready-to-go right out of the box to sync with any Bluetooth-enabled device, the Techno 2.0 also has great ventilation, a removable liner and a drop-down tinted sun shield all in a convenient modular design.
Internal drop-down sun shield
Hi-tech injection molded polycarbonate shell
Quick release clear locking shield fitted as standard
Chin mounted airflow ventilation with open/close function
Fully removable lining with chin deflector
Double D-ring safety fastening
Modular flip-up design with metal-to-metal latching system
I purchased 1 for myself and 1 for my wife. The fit is snug but like the Bilt one I believe it will work it's way to be comfortable. This helmet is a BIG improvement Bluetooth wise. It has a Sena Bluetooth and not the junk that was in the first series helmet. Helmet to helmet pairing for talking to my passenger is clear and loud. It works good with my Samsung phone which is mounted dead center on my handlebars. It hears commands for music, navigation and phone calls. My one complaint is that it is suppose to send my music back to my passenger which it does when we are off the bike. When we get on the bike the music stop to the passenger. My guess is the signal is not making it through my body to the rear helmet with bike running or turned off. The pairing still works. My solution to this is to let my wife use her own cell phone to play music. So at this point I have 2 cell phones running to 2 helmets independently and the good news is the helmet to helmet still works fine. Hope Cycle Gear reads this and has an answer for me as Sena will not talk about their system in the Bilt helmet. Sena cannot even tell me a model number of the bluetooth. At this time the Sena Device Manager will not work for updates and bluetooth control on your PC. Cycle Gear says maybe down the road the helmet model will show up as an option on the Device Manager.
Bilt sizing table recommended a XL for me and a XS for my wife, but when we tried them on I needed the XXL and she needed the S. Even the XXL is tight, but they don't make a bigger helmet. I wear a 7.5in hat normally for reference. Helmet noise barrier under the chin when closed came loose on the first ride. Don't hold the helmet by that thin fabric piece. The helmet is narrow and squeezes the cheeks big time. Sena Bluetooth headset works well, but volume is hard to get right. Phone calls are too loud but music is too low. For the money you can't beat this helmet.
Best value per dollar, in my opinion. Sena Bluetooth built in. (Have to use cyclegear's software manager as sena's will not communicate) Tight fit at first, but breaks in quick. Decent airflow for the few vents it is equipped with. Visor fogs on cold days but that can be fixed. Comes with a drop down tinted visor so no need to carry a spare or sunglass. Wind noise is way less than expected from a modular helmet. Would buy again and again.
It has all the best features in one helmet. The Bluetooth works great. Do wish it had a little more bass in the speakers. Bluetooth is very clear even over my loud pipes. Best buy for your money. That is rare now days. Would buy again for sure. Liked it so much I got my wife one to match.
Good helmet. Would be great if interior material were better
Bluetooth works great. Outside appearance and finish are great. The interior materials are were the price point cutting begins. The materials are cheap, plasticy feeling compared to other helmets I've had, such as HJC or Scorpion. Not terrible, just cheaper feeling. The venting is good around the face, but I don't feel much air around the rest of my head. The flip down sun shades are good, but really thin material. None of the above is a deal breaker, just trying to be honest. I will keep this as my main helmet for Spring, Summer and Fall. For Winter I will revert to my Scorpion EXO 900.. ALSO.. buy one size larger! I usually wear a Large or Medium. I had to get an XL with this helmet
I can not express how important it is to wear a full faced helmet! I was wearing this helmet when a box truck pulled out in front of me I hit the front brake on my aprillia falco too hard and face planted the road at 52 mph I had a go pro that caught the entire wreck I know for a fact that if I was wearing less of a helmet I would be dead right now it took the hit very well I didn't even have a concussion but the inside under the pads where cracked just so you can visualize how hard I hit it scrapped the left side of the helmet pretty bad I slide about 20 ish feet but the helmet is still completely functional the inner visor still goes up and down and the Bluetooth was still working I talked to my family on it will in the ambulance because they didn't know if I had snapped my neck so they left the helmet on overall I love this helmet I would get the same one again but I want to try the evolution version of this helmet because my only complaint would be the lack of air flow from the top vents they just aren't big enough or designed well enough to pull in the air on a hot day and it gets toasty here in Georgia I love the inside tinted visor and especially the way it shoots up when you press the switch for it to come up it does take some time to get used too and is a little hard to push down when you first get the helmet but once your used to it it's pretty simple you end up not even realizing you pressed it as far as the sena goes it is pretty good the sound quality is great depending on the type of music you like for more rock and mid tone types of music it is perfect and the volume will get louder than you would want to listen to it at but when it comes to rap or electronic music with bass and so on it doesn't quite work well at least not when you start moving and the wind/exhaust gets to loud to here low tones but that usually happens past the 70ish mph mark you get going faster then 70and it just disappears no matter the music type but your experience might be different I'm on a sport bike with a 1000cc v-twin and racing pipes so it could work just fine for someone else also I have ridden with a friend using the headsets and that was great I could hear him clearly and as far as other people hearing me on my headset wether it's a phone call or another rider I would say the voice dialing is not the best it works but I couldn't always get it to recognize who I was talking about calling when I was going down the road I usually just waited until I was stopped and it was fine I actually just corrected a word on here with the sena because I pulled it out and set it up to work on my pillow lol overall I loved this helmet and it did save my life but as mentioned previously I would like more air flow therefore I'm going to spend the extra $20 for the upgraded model and I will probably soon have a review on it let's just hope it's not for the same reason...... Also I don't like the change in the inner visor mechanism for the new up date I prefer this model hope this helps
The helmet has been great for me after about a month of having it. The ONLY thing that I'm not a fan of, my wife isn't either, is that after about an hour of riding, your head hurts to the max. Hopefully it'll loosen up! Great for the price!!
I have not gone past putting it on after a shower to test the fit. Size runs at least a full size SMALLER than recommended. Chart calls for me to wear a Med., but I ordered a Large. The Large is Tight !! I can't attest to wind noise since I haven't ridden with it on( or fully un-packed. For form and function of all the features, you won't find a better deal in one package!
Definitely an improvement over the previous model. You don't have to find a place to tuck in the charging cord. Instructions for sync needed an extra sentence of instructions. Vents are good. I think the speakers are better.
Have not had this helmet long, but laid down my bike going around turn and skid on the side of my head. The impact and skid were "pleasant" and there was no damage to the helmet, not even a single scratch. Would definitely recommend this helmet to anyone just for the safety factor alone. The amazing bluetooth quality is just a bonus.
