If you are interested in writing a story about LIVALL, please contact us at email@example.com and we would be happy to get you anything that you need and answer any questions that you may have.
With the built-in Windbreak Mic and Bluetooth Speakers, the BH60 helmet enables you to answer or make phone calls when needed. You can enjoy your 'me time' without worrying people may not be able to reach you.
When riding in a group, you can communicate with each other by walkie-talkie. Furthermore, text messages sent through the LIVALL Riding APP will automatically be converted into voice messages for riders that are in riding mode. No more need to yell at each other.
With the built-in Bluetooth speakers, you can listen to songs and select/start/pause songs with LIVALL Bling Jet (remote control). Choose the music that matches your speed and cycle to the beats!
We added a 3-axis G-sensor to the BH60 helmet to make sure you can get help in time in case you fall. Once the G-sensor senses unusual gravity acceleration, the emergency signals on the helmet will be turned on and an SOS alert will be sent to your emergency contacts automatically. Very useful when you’re cycling alone.
LIVALL BH60 also comes with colored LED at the back of the helmet, serving as direction indicators. You need the Bling Jet (remote control) to let the taillights blink. You can press the button ‘left’ or ‘right’ to let people behind you see where you are going.

THE FULL PACKAGE
Not Only a Helmet
LIVALL BH60 is not only a helmet. Besides the helmet, there’re the LIVALL Bling Jet, LIVALL’s Nano Cadence Sensor, LIVALL’s Phone holder and the LIVALL Riding APP. With all these parts working together, we’re aiming to provide you a safer, happier and more convenient riding experience.
BH60 is smart because it has a built-in Windbreak Mic, 3-axis G-sensor, Bluetooth Speakers and LEDs on the back of the helmet. All these things together make our Bling Helmet extraordinary.
The Bling Jet can be attached to your handlebar. It allows you to easily control the Bling Helmet and Riding APP, while remaining stable and focused.The photo-taking button on the Bling Jet enables you to easily take photos with your phone and store them in the LIVALL Riding APP. You can review your journey or share your story.
With the Nano Cadence Sensor set on your bike’s crank-set hole, the LIVALL Riding APP can show the cadence of your cycling, and (based on that) your speed, traveled distance and burned calories. Seeing the numbers go up will boost your performance! The LIVALL Riding APP can also show slope rate, altitude, and heart rate when you connect designated extension devices to your phone.
LIVALL’s Bling Helmet, Bling Jet, and Nano Cadence Sensor all work together with the LIVALL Riding APP. The APP can play music, send out SOS alerts, control the lighting on the helmet, and show your journey’s stats. You can share stats, photos and videos via Facebook or Twitter. Furthermore, the APP also allows you to import data from other devices such as a pedometer and a smartwatch. With the parameters from other devices, the stats will be even more extensive and trustable.
We know how nervous you can get when your phone’s battery is dead. LIVALL Phone Holder can be set in front of your bike to hold your phone, and it can also be used as a mobile charger and keep your phone alive.
A survey will be sent to all backers at the end of campaign for color choices of BH60. Besides color, it's a free size helmet with an adjuster which make the helmet fit for head circumference from 54cm to 62cm. The BH100 remains the most popullar color which is blue+white as above picture shows.
How LIVALL was founded
One of our founders fell off his bike and broke his arm. He wanted to help others avoid the same situation, and provide riders a safer yet more joyful riding experience. That was the initial reason of LIVALL’s existence. On April 17th, 2014 a group of talents from top internet companies, who are also extreme sports fans and cycling enthusiasts, came together and established the company. They concentrate on the R&D and operation of smart riding equipment. The management team has an out-of-the-box thinking style, rich operating experience, a wide network, professional knowledge and a deep love for their work, which enables the team to develop rapidly.
LIVALL is not just the brand of our product, it’s also the spirit of our team. We wish all of us together can engage something different, something innovative and something useful in our life. It can make people feel like LIVe a better life ALL together. We now believe that we can proudly say that we made it.
Riding with LIVALL
Creating a safe and joyful cycling experience is the reason we created LIVALL’s smart riding equipment. We want the world to get to know the vast possibilities of cycling, and show that it can be more fun than one can imagine. Also, by drawing more attention to cycling, we want to promote a healthy and low-carbon life style.
In order to put our product into mass production and to let more people get to know our product, we need funds. Our target customers are — just like Kickstarter’s users — open to innovation, they care about the quality of their life and others’, and value the natural environment. Kickstarter is one of the most influential crowdfunding platforms, and it already helped to make a lot of dreams come true. We hope it can help us to achieve our common goal as well.
