Form and function collide with this low-profile motorcycle Bluetooth® headset & intercom from Sena. The Sena 10R integrates with your helmet, enabling you to listen to your favorite music, get GPS directions, chat with other riders via rider-to-rider intercom and make hands-free phone calls while safely keeping your eyes on the road and your hands on the bars. While it’s true that there are no shortage of similar products on the market, we love the Sena 10R for it’s stealthy, minimalist design without compromise to the features we’re looking for in a Bluetooth® motorcycle headset.

Sena 10R – Road Tested by Arrick Maurice
I’ve been riding with the Sena 10R for several months now and it’s become something I can’t live without when riding on the street. I installed it on my Shoei RF-1100 (featured image above) and it not only works perfectly, but I’m a huge fan of the design.
Typically, I’ll ride with my Sena 10R and Apple Watch linked to my iPhone. With this setup, the Sena 10R delivers music and turn by turn directions, while I can always take a quick glance at the watch for mileage to the next turn between voice prompts. One of the biggest surprises is that I can wear ear plugs to drown out the wind noise and exhaust note, while still hearing the great sound from the Sena speakers.
