Bell Helmets, one of the leaders in superior helmet technology and design, has partnered with 360fly to bring what many may consider the ultimate action sports helmets in the industry.
Are you tired of having to accessorize your helmet with endless sticky mounts, arms and twist knobs to mount your favorite action cam only to have it fall off from getting hit by a rock, snagged by a tree or the unfortunate get off? Bell Helmets and 360fly cameras have partnered up to bring the ultimate action sports helmets for both dirt, street and mountain bike enthusiasts. On January 5th at CES, 360fly announced their latest 360-degree action cam that is capable of taking 4K videos, but also announced the partnership with Bell who will manufacture helmets that will actually embed the camera into the shell, preventing potential snags and camera loss.
The Bell Star and Moto-9 helmets will be offered with the 360fly action cam in a late 2016 release..
The 360fly camera currently has the capability to capture 30 fps videos that are able to be tagged with GPS info, has built-in WIFI, Bluetooth connectivity and two hour battery life. Fly has stated that before the helmets are released in late 2016, they plan to introduce even more features to the already impressive camera. The new 360fly camera will have an MSRP of $499, up from the original $400 sold at Best Buy and the MSRP on helmets with camera are unavailable at this time.
The new 360fly camera will also include the following features
- Front-facing mode – for when you don’t want a 360-degree view for some reason
- Time-lapse mode – ability to select 1, 2, 5, 10, 30 or 60-second shutter intervals
- Motion and auto-detection mode – automatically records when there is movement or sound
- Accelerometer activated record mode – starts recording when you shake the camera
- Telemetry – track your location, altitude, and speed, then overlay that data on your video if you want
- One-push button color coding – additional color-coded lighting around the OnePush button and bottom of the mounting dock
