Chinese micromobility manufacturer Okai, which supplies vehicles to many big-name shared mobility operators including Bird, Lime, dott and SPIN, earlier this month launched its SH10 smart helmet at CES 2022 show in Las Vegas.

Conscious that we are moving to a post Covid world, the helmet is made with antibacterial materials and targeted at shared operators that are increasingly required to provide helmets as part of their operating licence. The SH10, says Okai, makes for a safer and more hygienic ride.

The helmet also features Bluetooth to connect to the Okai app, from which riders can customize and configure front and rear LED displays to improve visibility. A smart integrated speaker allows riders to listen to music, apparently without affecting aural awareness on the road.
