How Much Helmet Will $1.5K Get You?

The Skully AR-1 motorcycle helmet, “a motorcycle helmet for the digital world” according to Popular Science, is now available for pre-order. And if you do, you can save $100 on what seems like a rather lofty price tag: $1,499. And what does that price tag get you? See for yourself:

The Skully AR-1 helmet features a transparent heads-up display that shows information such as current speed, turn-by-turn directions, and incoming calls. A wide-angle rearview camera also gives you a constant view of what’s behind you. And most importantly, the helmet is DOT/ECE certified for safety.

Personally, I think the most remarkable feature of the helmet is its styling: both smooth and angular, it’s sharp, sleek, and modern. It’s also a very specific aesthetic. It would probably look out of place on my head as I putter around on my 1980 Suzuki GS500 L. But you know what? I still want one. Do you?
