When it comes to purchasing a motorsports helmet, there seem to be hundreds to choose from and there is no shortage of hype surrounding them. To Be Technology hopes to make this choice easier for you with its latest helmet dubbed the Do Rock, available this fall.

Last year, To Be Technology threw its proverbial hat into the ring with its Do Thrill helmet, a standard ABS helmet for the masses that featured To Be's unique styling and graphics. The helmet was received with much praise but the Swedish-based clothing manufacturer was not about to rest on its laurels. It set out to create something much lighter with an even more original graphic design and new innovative features that the snowmobile industry has not previously had access to.

Enter the Do Rock.

The Do Rock helmet has an impressive feature set, but at the top of the list is the ultra-lightweight Skullcandy speakers. This lid ships with standard cheek-pads installed but also in the box is an optional set of cheek-pads with built-in Skullcandy speakers. Even with the speakers installed, this helmet weighs in at a feather-light 1,250 grams. That makes this a DOT and ECE (race approved) helmet only 2.75 lbs. The shell is constructed from carbon fiber that is reinforced with fiberglass. It is available in white with sizes from XS-XXL.

The speaker kit also contains a cable with an in-line volume controller/microphone that connects your audio device to the helmet. This enables you to easily adjust the volume without having to dig through your pockets to locate your audio device. The kit also comes with a slew of cell phone adapters so you can use it as a hands-free headset or listen to music stored on your cell phone. The speakers utilize a standard 1/8-inch headphone jack so the helmet can be used with any mp3 player or even 2-way radios. While any mp3 player will work, the helmet was built to be used with To Be's own easy-to-use iPod controller. This iPod controller mounts on the sleeve of your To Be jacket and can be used to pause/play, change track and adjust volume on your iPod without ever having to remove it from the safety of your custom-made, warm and dry pocket. The controller works with all of Apple's iPod mp3 players except the Shuffle.

Rounding off the large inventory of features is a removable washable liner and an optional breath box. Priced at $375, this helmet is a bargain considering its quality construction, ultra light weight, Skullcandy speakers and safety ratings.
