Sena unveils new R1 EVO and EVO 4K smart helmets

Built-in speakers are located above the ears, enabling you to listen to the surrounding environment in order to stay safe while on the go.

Additionally, the helmet features an integrated rear light, providing greater safety by increasing visibility from behind.
