Using open-ear bone conduction, the Coros LINX smart cycling helmet provide safe audio during your cycling. Like the idea? Let’s continue checking more features packed in the smart helmet.
The Coros LINX is an advanced, Bluetooth-enabled smart cycling helmet that comes in two sizes for different cyclists. As shown in the images, the bicycle helmet sports a sleek high-speed low-drag aerodynamic road cycling design that delivers a comfortable wearing experience for long rides, and its foam strip lining and a ratchet fitting system are designed for impact protection and extended wear across various head sizes and shapes.
The smart cycling helmet features integrated RideAware open-ear bone conduction audio, so the sound waves can be converted into vibrations and delivered through your upper cheekbones. This means that you can hear audio from the helmet including music, calls, voice navigation, and voice data and hear your surroundings as you ride in order to avoid dangerous accidents in time. The cycling helmet also features a built-in wind resistant microphone for handsfree calls.
The Coros LINX comes with a smart remote that can be mounted on the handlebar of your bike, and its buttons are easy to find by feel so you can keep your eyes on the road and control music playback or take calls. Furthermore, the cycling helmet is equipped with an emergency alert system. When its built-in G-sensor detects significant impact, it will send an alert with GPS notification to a designated person. In addition, its companion app helps you manage GPS ride details, routes, voice data and more, and it receives voice navigation prompts and key ride stats including speed, distance, pace, calories burned and more. Its rechargeable battery offers over 10 hours of battery life between charges.
The crowdfunding campaign for Coros LINX is ongoing via Kickstarter. You can pledge $100 to preorder the smart cycling helmet. It will be shipped in October this year. Update: the LINX has also been available on Amazon for $199.
