The Sena R1 EVO is not just a cycling helmet. Sena has transferred their expertise learned from providing communications equipment for motorcyclists to cycling helmets.

Sena has managed to incorporate a way to communicate with fellow riders into an excellent cycle helmet.

Communication

The R1 Evo uses Sena's Mesh Intercom technology. This system allows you to communicate with an unlimited amount of other riders. In open terrain, you can speak to people up to 900 away. Still, this range can be extended up to 3.6 km between a minimum of 6 riders in open terrain.

Sena has fitted the R1 Evo with a built-in microphone and speakers. It allows you to communicate with as many riders as you need to within your group. Thanks to Bluetooth connectivity to your phone, you can even make and receive phone calls on the move.

The R1 Evo also allows you to use voice commands. A great example of this is turning on the helmet's built-in tail light by just talking to it.

The sound quality is excellent, and you can still hear what people are saying when riding into a headwind. The speakers sit directly over your ears, so the sound is uninterrupted, meaning you don't miss out on any vital information.

Protection And Comfort

The Sena R1 Evo has an In-Mold polycarbonate construction with an EPS liner. Sena has made sure that this helmet meets all the safety requirements for cycling. However, it is not a MIPS helmet, so you don't get protection against rotational forces. But you will feel safer during a ride thanks to its excellent coverage, especially around the back of the head.

You can adjust the R1 Evo's fit with the dial on its rear. This allows you to fine-tune how tight it is around your head with one hand. You can also customize the helmet's fit with the side strap locks.

Sena has provided the Evo R1 with lots of padding to make it super comfortable for most people's heads. If you have a particularly round head, you will love how it feels.

Our Final Thoughts

The Sena R1 Evo is the NEXT LEVEL of cycling helmet. You will be impressed with the tech and convenience it brings to your rides. It has excellent sound quality and is easier to connect to your phone than previous models.

When it comes to communicating with your fellow riders, you will find that the Mesh Intercom system is incredibly effective. You can chat without shouting above wind and road noise, wondering if you got your message across. It becomes invaluable when coaching novice riders or meeting up with stragglers at the back of the group.

Also, by being able to take phone calls on the move, you don't have to pull over. All this technology enhances your time on the bike while keeping you safe.

Another great thing about the Sena R1 Evo is that it looks great! You can choose between matte black or matte white to go with your bike's paintwork.
