We’ve seen a lot of helmet cameras but now we’ve seen the first truce camera helmet – as in a helmet designed specifically to be used with a helmet-mounted camera. Now the first thing to keep in mind is that many bicycle race organizations have banned the use of helmet-mounted cameras, and some cycling groups recommend mounting the camera somewhere besides a helmet as the gadget can actually cause head and neck injury in a crash.
But if you absolutely want or even NEED to have a helmet-mounted camera, then consider the AMARA CAM helmet from Kali Protectives. This brain bucket features a built-in mounting point that accepts a number of popular sport camcorders and even head lamps. The helmets are made of polycarbonate shell and EPS (expanded polystyrene) foam liner that should help keep the head protected nicely enough.
The mount is really quite simple and basic, and consists of a plastic rail located at the top of the helmet – which makes us wonder why no one else has come up with this solution – but kudos to Kali for devising it. The rail and mount is compatible with GoPro Hero cameras of course, as well as head lamps from various companies.
So for those that insist on recording their action, the Kali AMARA CAM could be the way to go.
