The GSM capabilities built-in the helmet means that you can talk to other riders in your group without worrying about the comms range. You can talk to several bikers by going into audioconference mode. The helmet also has impact sensors, and when they determine that you have had an accident, the helmet automatically calls in the specialists.

The gloves are there to operate the functions of the helmet. With the Bluetooth link between the gloves and helmet, you use your hands as gestures to select your function in your helmet. The gloves also detect accidents and impacts and will work in conjunction with the helmet to monitor your well being.
