Smart bike helmet lets bikers listen to music without drowning sound of traffic
HALFORDS today announces a technological first with the launch of the innovative Coros Linx Smart bike helmet – the smarter way to listen to music or take phone calls when cycling.
It features a wireless headset that hangs from the helmet and straps to the cyclist’s cheekbone or jawbone. Sound is then conveyed through bone conduction technology and eliminates the need for headphones.
Users of the helmet, which weighs just 400g, can wirelessly listen to audio by connecting their phone to the helmet via Bluetooth. A device mounted to handlebars is used to adjust volume, pause and skip and answer calls without users having to get their phone out.
It also connects to an app that can automatically alert friends and family in the event of an accident, plan routes and track racing times.
Halfords’ cycling accessories expert David Taylor says; “This solves the big problem of people listening to music while they’re cycling. The helmet means you can listen to music, take phone calls, talk to cyclists and get navigation directions.
“The helmet means you can listen to music, take phone calls, talk to cyclists and get navigation directions, while you stay hands, ears and eyes free so you can focus on the road ahead.”
The Coros Linx Smart bike helmet has a ten hour battery life and takes one and a half hours to charge.
Available from Halfords.com, Coros Linx Smart bike helmet RRP: £179.99
