joke aside

  1. Can we expect an pinlock for the visor? I would love to add an anifog visor

  2. Also any clue on the replacement cost for the visors

  3. If anything ware to happen to the battery and the charging unit can we replace it too ? (After the warrenty is over )

  4. As most mid to high end helmets now days come with optical correct visor can we expect both helmets to come with optically correct vision .

I’m still confused, is Halo bit just the module or the full package with half-faced helmet?

It’s full package with half faced helmet

but, in the intro part he mentions Halo as the full face helmet and halo bit as the module which attaches to the Ather half face helmets.

Well, in that case how is Halo bit ISI and DOT compliant as stated in the video?

Yeah that actually didn’t make sense for me either. But I am just guessing they are gonna just give out the new helmets for the deliveries instead of the white ones that they give now.

Might be the newer half face helmet and the bit together. Might be the different half face helmet that you can additionally as an accessory instead of the white free one.

Halo bit is just the device not with the helmet.helmet purchase is optional. I think we might see few tweaks in halo as well I gues.

I think currently they’ll sell it with helmet. Later on the people who only got the newer helmet might attach the module if they want.

I think module will be sold later seperately.

Halo bit is just a Module, there will be no helmet given with it. Helmet has to be purchased separately.

Some of the questions off the top of my head, which are very important but remained unanswered:

  1. Are the visors replaceable? Especially considering the proprietary ratcheting/hinge mechanism.

  2. If replaceable, any chances for a tinted visor replacement? It will be highly appreciated, considering you accomodate spectacles users with the padding but we can never enjoy sunglasses :cry:

  3. In case of an accident, helmets are generally not advised to be reused. Is it possible to move the electronics from a damaged shell to another? It is a very basic but necessary requirement for a smart helmet.

  4. What about having buttons on the helmet for playback switching? If these are absent, I hope the Bluetooth pairing process is made better with the scooter cuz I’m having big issues with the current app.

  5. Colour options? We were provided two choices during ACD’24 but only one of the colour has been advertised.

Point 3 is important. You can’t just say the electronics and shell have “impact-grade protection” – these shells are meant to be used and thrown after accidents. The electronics are useless without the shell, and you’re either creating e-waste or risking riders.
