The new owner of failed hi-tech helmet brand Skully is preparing to deliver his company's AR-ready helmet this summer, it was revealed at a presentation as part of the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Skully Technologies replaces the defunct Skully Inc., and the Atlanta-based company is now led by Ivan and Rafael Contreras. The new company announced last autumn that it intended to release its much teased helmet, now updated and dubbed the Fenix AR (pictured), which retains the original AR-1’s heads-up display, rear-facing camera, and smartphone integration which enables GPS navigation.

“The Skully Fenix AR is bringing riders an unparalleled experience that offers increased safety and optimal connectivity, and there’s no better time or place to introduce the world’s most intelligent motorcycle helmet than CES,” says Ivan Contreras, co-founder and CEO of Skully Technologies. “We are deeply passionate about transforming riders’ mobility experience, and by pioneering the Skully Fenix AR, this is a critical first step in our imperative mission to enrich how people engage with the personal mobility interconnect that sets a new standard for safety.”
