VENTI WRC helmet is designed around a new communication system concept: a professional intercom system completely WIRELESS. This system is comprised of two WL-Key that can be plugged directly to the side port of the VENTI helmet and a WL control unit that can be installed inside the car. The helmet is also fully compatible with WRC, WRC DES, DG10 & DG30 intercom systems
Q. Will it work with the current helmets like my composite WRC or Carbon Piuma?
A. Stilo Strongly advises against this option. Though the electronics will technically work, the Venti is designed around the Wireless Key. Not only is the port more recessed and in a more forward location, it also has a different configuration allowing the key to sit deeper and thus more unobtrusive. Using with a current helmet is not advised as it does not sit flush when installed and also is too close to the FHR Posts.
Q. What do I need to purchase?
A. You can purchase the wireless key separately (one per helmet, comes with charging cable) and a wireless intercom. You can also buy a kit comprising of 2 x wireless key, and 1 x intercom. The benefit of the kit is they come pre-paired and thus a true 'plug and play' solution.
Q.How long will the batteries last?
A.The batteries last about 5 hours, and can easily re-charged with the accompanying magnetic USB charging cable
Q. What is the range?
A The range is approximately 10 metres from the wireless intercom. This is an in-car communication but allows communication on the periphery of the vehicle when working on any repairs.
Q. What about my GoPro, can I use it?
A. The Wireless intercom has an audio outlet for this purpose (and can be used with any type of camera)
Q. What about practice headsets?
A. Practice headsets will also be available
Q. Will the Venti helmet work with my current (wired) Stilo intercom?
A. Yes, just plug it in!
Q. Will there be a ST5R Version?
A. Yes, there will, the main difference will be the recessed port on the right side will be for the new key, and it will be called the ST5R WL (available in Carbon Fibre only)
Q. How does it work with my phone?
A. You can connect your phone to the digital intercom using BT
Q. Can I use it with my 2-way radio?
A. Yes, adapter kits and cables are available (Kenwood, Motorola etc)
