U-CLEAR HBC200 Dual Force Bluetooth Communicator New for 2012 and featuring Boomless ABF Technology, UCLEAR HBC200 Force introduces Super Group Intercom and Multi-Hop technology, specifically designed for group communications with full duplex intercom. Multi-hop technology, used in military tactical communications provides superior sound quality and connection stability over Bluetooth intercom systems that suffer from interference and are line of sight dependent. By incorporating Multi-hop technology, each Uclear HBC200 control unit works as a repeater or relay station, enabling the network to grow as more control units/riders are added to the group. Depending on riding conditions, the intercom range between two riders is up to 700 meters. Adding a third unit/rider increases the intercom range up to an additional 700 meters. Add a fourth rider and the entire group can communicate up to 2100 meters (1.3 miles) in full duplex intercom mode. Features Music, Calls, GPS (Bluetooth devices) Super Group Intercom (Full Duplex 4 riders) Multi-Hop Communication Extender (up to 700 meters between units or 2100 meters (1.3 miles) between four units.) Voice command for hands-free call pickup Hi-Fi stereo audio (AVRCP, A2DP) Boomless microphone (Industry first) Patented ABF / DSP technology isolates your voice and eliminates all background noise Firmware upgrades available Auto loudness adjustments GPS device compatible (Bluetooth HS/HFP profile required) One USB/Wall charger, two USB cables (Dual pack only) Easy installation on any helmet including full face or 3/4 helmets One year manufactures warranty

This is my second Uclear purchase. I bought the HBC100 about a year ago and loved it. When the new HBC200 came out I knew it was time to upgrade and get a dual setup.
The buttons are easier to push then the old model but still lack responsiveness at times. They also changed a couple of button commands from the old unit. As an example I used to push the main button once to stop and again to play music. It now requires two quick pushes. It may not sound like a big deal, but when you're used to it one way it takes a while to get used to it another way.
The installation was a breeze for both my wife's and my helmet. However, in her Bilt helmet you can feel the ear pieces protruding a little and resting on your ears. In my Shoei RF-1100 I don't feel them at all. Once installed it did take us a good 15-minutes to get the headset to synch to one another. Once done, the sound quality was excellent.
Overall, these are great headsets. The sound quality is excellent and you get stereo sound in your helmet. I like not having a boom too. They're going to cost you more then other headsets, but for me it was worth the extra money.

Shoei CW-1 Faceshield The new Shoei CW-1 Visor / face shield fits Shoei Qwest, RF-1100 and X-12 Helmets Q.R.S.A. (Quick-Release Self-Adjusting) base plate allows for tool-less shield removal and installation. The spring-loaded base plate (U.S. patent pending 11/799935) pulls the shield back into contact with the window beading evenly and ensures a proper seal The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces Optional, CWF-1 two-dimensional racing shields with tear-off posts are available Scratch-resistant coating 99.9 protection from harmful UV A and B rays Optional, CW-1 Pinlock prepared shields are available to accommodate Pinlock Fog Free Inserts A pre-set lever can easily lock the shield in place to prevent the shield from opening unexpectedly, as well as prop the shield open to increase airflow Note Mellow Smoke refers to a tint that is lighter than the Light Smoke shield. Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

My only complaint is the visor isn't tinted dark enough. But it's so much better then trying to squeeze sunglasses on with the clear shield. So for that I'm happy.
