The Cratoni SmartRide 1.2 is the improved version of the original Cratoni SmartRide. The new version includes all the benefits of the original version and more! Among other things, the longer battery life and a more stable connection make using this helmet a joy.
Like its predecessor, this helmet is NTA8776 approved and allows you to be fully accessible during your bike rides. Thanks to the bluetooth connection that is established using an app on your smartphone, you can listen to your favorite music, make phone calls or communicate with other SmartRide users using the walkie-talkie option.
In addition to the bluetooth options, the helmet is also equipped with a G-sensor, which can measure impact. When the sensor is activated by a fall, selected contacts will be immediately notified. Because your coordinates are transmitted, they immediately know where you are!
The helmet is also equipped with direction indicators, which can be controlled via a controller on the handlebar of your speed pedelec. So you never have to take your hands off the handlebars. The helmet also has a brake light that lights up when you brake. In this way you communicate not only via bluetooth, but also with your fellow road users.
The helmet is available in three colors, Black, Anthracite and Neon Yellow in sizes S-M (54-58 cm) and M-L (58-61 cm).

Why is a speed-pedelec helmet necessary?
A speed-pedelec is a bicycle equipped with an electric motor that supports the rider when pedaling up to a maximum speed of 45 km/h. According to the new European Regulation on the approval and market surveillance of two- or three-wheeled vehicles and quadricycles (No. 168/2013), this S-EPAC falls into the same category as a moped. In the Netherlands, therefore, a moped helmet obligation (helmet according to ECE R22) applies when using an S-EPAC.
In deviation from the moped helmet obligation, from 2017 in the Netherlands it is also allowed to use a helmet that meets the requirements established in NTA 8776. A helmet that complies with NTA 8776 is similar to a bicycle helmet, but is calculated for higher fall speeds and protects a larger part of the head. Compared to a bicycle helmet, the helmet offers in particular more protection for the temples and the back of the head.
In Belgium, no specific standard has been drawn up. The helmet must have an EN 1078 certificate (= every bicycle helmet must have such a certificate) and furthermore, the traffic regulations stipulate that the temples and the back of the head must be protected. Like all products sold in Europe, it must also have a CE mark. In Belgium, it is therefore not easy to determine whether or not your helmet meets the speed pedelec standard. The "protection and sleeping" requirements are not explained in detail, so it is difficult to judge whether or not a specific model of helmet meets these requirements. If you want to be sure, choose a helmet that has the Dutch NTA 8776 certificate.
Development of NTA 8776
In order to develop NTA 8776, an international group of experts used as much as possible the existing knowledge in the field of head protection and the results of tests performed on high-end bicycle helmets. EN 1078 - Helmets for cyclists and users of skateboards and roller skates was then chosen as the starting point and the project group tightened up the requirements as far as possible within the scope of current helmet technology. In addition to the increased safety level, the fact that the helmet must be suitable for use during physical exertion and must not impede hearing was also taken into account.
