Sena has un­veiled its smartest unit yet – the range-top­ping Sena 30K. It uses new Mesh In­ter­com tech­nol­ogy, Blue­tooth 4.1, and the new Sena RideCon­nected app, to en­sure rid­ers can stay con­nected – even if their group doesn’t stay to­gether on the road – while seam­lessly stream­ing smart­phone mu­sic, an­swer­ing phone calls and lis­ten­ing to turn-by-turn GPS nav­i­ga­tion.

In short, the 30K takes ad­van­tage of three unique tech­nolo­gies to stay con­nected. Firstly, there’s Sena’s Mesh In­ter­com tech­nol­ogy, which al­lows au­to­matic con­nec­tion to a vir­tu­ally lim­it­less num­ber of 30K users, plus there’s a ‘pri­vate mode’ which al­lows users to in­vite and com­mu­ni­cate with up to 16 rid­ers at a range of up to 2km (1.2 miles), and there’s even an op­tion to al­low an end­less num­ber of ‘guests’ to lis­ten in. And most im­por­tantly, if a rider goes out of range, the rest of the group stays con­nected while the 30K au­to­mat­i­cally searches for and re­con­nects to the ‘lost’ rider once back in range. The 30K is Blue­tooth 4.1 en­abled, and can con­nect to up to three other Sena and non-Sena Blue­tooth de­vices, at the same time as Mesh In­ter­com de­vices. And fi­nally, the Sena RideCon­nected app al­lows users to com­mu­ni­cate with a vir­tu­ally lim­it­less amount of rid­ers world­wide, over an in­fi­nite range, pro­vid­ing they’re con­nected to a mo­bile net­work.

Fea­tures-wise, the Sena 30K is equipped with au­dio mul­ti­task­ing tech­nol­ogy which al­lows users to hold a con­ver­sa­tion, while si­mul­ta­ne­ously stream­ing smart­phone mu­sic or lis­ten­ing to the built-in FM ra­dio, tak­ing phone calls, or hear­ing GPS nav­i­ga­tion. It can be op­er­ated com­pletely hands-free, us­ing voice com­mands – so the rider can move through mu­sic, phone and in­ter­com fea­tures without tak­ing his or her hands off the bars or their con­cen­tra­tion away from the road.

For charg­ing, a quick charge fea­ture means that in just 20 min­utes, users get five hours of Blue­tooth in­ter­com use, or three hours Mesh In­ter­com use. The 30K is water re­sis­tant and com­pat­i­ble with Sena’s op­tional Han­dle­bar Re­mote con­trol, as well as all the 20S clamp ac­ces­sories.

The Util­ity app (for iPhone and An­droid) means own­ers can con­fig­ure de­vice set­tings and ac­cess a quick user guide with ease.
