The new approach means that a group is set up in a mesh not a "daisy chain" configuration. This means that members of the group can come and go, rejoining automatically as soon as they return. The mesh system means that although the rider has left the group the comms with that group are not affected by that riders position in the "chain"
ADAPTIVE MESH-NETWORKING, A STEP ABOVE
Group communication simplified with Sena’s cutting-edge new technology
Sena Adaptive Mesh-Networking technology is about to change the way you communicate on your ride. Group intercom connections are made simple with Sena’s new technology, when one of the group’s riders goes out of range the Adaptive Mesh-Networking intelligently keeps the rest of the group in seamless communication. No longer will you have to worry about losing half of your connections due to sticky group intercom situations. Sena’s 30K is one of the first mesh-network devices, which allows you to communicate with up to 16 riders at a range of up to 2km (1.2 miles) with the 30K.
NOW MORE CONNECTED THAN EVER
Don’t leave your buddies in the dust
The technological advance of Sena’s Adaptive Mesh-Network communication has the ability to work in conjunction with Bluetooth allowing for more connections than ever before with the 30K. The 30K packs all of the capability necessary to ride in large groups. Designed with an innovative dual antenna and two separate processors, one for Bluetooth, and one for Adaptive Mesh-Network technology, the 30K has the ability to connect to each processor simultaneously with the new multi-operation feature. With the ability to dually connect to both Adaptive Mesh-Networking and Bluetooth 4.1, the 30K offers the connectivity you need while riding.
MORE WAYS TO CONNECT WITH EVERY RIDER
The 30K is our smartest unit yet offering the versatility to connect through Adaptive Mesh-Networking technology, Bluetooth, or the new Sena RideConnected app. The Sena RideConnected App allows you to simply connect with riders all over the world through your mobile network. Connect with any rider in any situation with the 30K. Though the 30K has evolved to Adaptive Mesh-Networking technology, it still is Bluetooth compatible and able to connect to all other Sena and non-Sena devices. Answer phone calls, listen to GPS navigation, or jam out to the built-in FM radio all through the 30K.
MORE FEATURES TO KEEP YOU RIDING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION
The 30K has a new quick charge feature that offers 4 hours of use after charging the device for just 15 minutes. With it’s revolutionary dual-antenna, riders may now simultaneously use all of the features of the 30K, such as Adaptive Mesh-Networking and Bluetooth intercom. Once you’re on the road, complete control of the 30K can be done through hands-free voice commands. Intuitive technology ensures safe, controlled riding as you seamlessly move through music, phone, and intercom features. The 30K is compatible with Sena’s optional Handlebar Remote control as well as all of the 20S clamp accessories.
THE 30K DOES THE MULTITASKING, SO YOU CAN FOCUS ON YOUR RIDE
You control what you want to hear with Audio Multitasking™
