Being safe while cycling with the Livall Smart Helmet | Review

Cycling has been a love of mine, ever since I can remember. Granted, it has been something I haven’t been able to do as much, lately, as I would like. But it is still something I very much enjoy doing. My children love going out on their bikes too and one thing I am forever telling them to be is safe. Safety, when cycling, is key. As a parent and a role model to my children, I have to wear a helmet, too. Livall recently sent me out their Bling Smart Helmet to review and I was keen to test it out.

The Livall BH60SE Bling Smart Helmet looks just like any other cycling helmet, but it’s so much more than that. Its key focus is safety and it allows you to do the following: 

  • Make & Answer phone calls via Bluetooth.
  • Listen to music.
  • Send an SOS alert if you’re unfortunate enough to be in an accident.
  • If you have a cycle group, with other Livall Smart helmet wearers, you can communicate using the walkie-talkie feature. 
  • Smart-lighting – allowing you to indicate to other road users if you are slowing down, or looking to turn. This is controlled by the Bling jet remote, which attaches to your bike. Also, very handy if you’re riding at night.

The overall appearance of the helmet is pretty slick. It has a unique ventilation design – with 24 air vents and based on its aerodynamic design, reduces wind resistance. The helmet itself is very lightweight and very comfortable to wear. It has integral molding for comfort and a nylon strap, with a soft padded cover to add additional comfort. It also comes with the tension adjusting system to fit different head sizes.

The SOS alert system that comes with this helmet, for me, makes it stand out from the rest. Sure it’s cool that you can answer & make phone calls and listen to music. But for me, having that peace of mind that if I’m out cycling, and something unfortunate was to happen – my emergency contacts would be alerted. The SOS alert system was very easy to set up. You can download the Livall Riding app for your iOS & Android devices, or use the Q-scan code that comes with the helmet. 

You can input all of your emergency contact people, such as a partner, parents, best friend, etc. The SOS alert sensor automatically activates if you fall down, even by accident. An emergency contact message {which will also include your location} will be sent to your emergency contacts if there is no operation on your phone or movement within 90 seconds. 

I think this feature is very handy to have, for any cyclist. Overall, this helmetphone is very cool. Being able to accept and make phone calls with ease, listen to music as you cycle and knowing that you are safe, is a great peace of mind. It certainly adds more enjoyment to the hobby, in my opinion. It’s no surprise to me that Livall BH51M won the prestigious ‘Product of the year’ in the Urban Category at ISPO Munich, 2018.

    Wow I had no idea helmets could be so clever – the SOS system sounds like such a useful concept 🙂

    I used to hate wearing a helmet when I was younger as I thought they looked really silly – I wish they had something like this as it is so slick I don’t think I would have complained as much! and so much safer

    I like the idea that you can contact other riders wearing one of these, would be useful if you are out with a cycling club.

    That is one smart helmet, I really love the design, it’s like something out of a superhero film. The SOS alert system is a genius idea too, how clever.

    This bike helmet has some great features. The SOS alert is great and it’s a product I’d buy for my husband as he cycles a lot and had an accident not so long back
