When it comes to designing a road helmet, most options are a combination of light-weight with aerodynamics, aimed at giving you the fastest and most comfortable helmet possible. While this is a significant feature that’s necessary to have, we ask the question - why stop there? Technology is changing the world we live in, and even cycle in as well. Thus, explains why we didn’t go for the traditional approach when it came to design SafeSound. Instead, we applied an innovative mindset that took an idea and engineered it into the most complete helmet available on the market, today.
Beginning with the Ear Opening Sound System (EOSS), we identified an already innovative idea, as an area of much needed improvement. With numerous extensive tests in our lab, we engineered a unique technology that optimizes a perfect blend of sound quality, with full environmental awareness. With this, we were able to eliminate some of the drawbacks associated with bone conduction, including those pesky vibrations that were experienced from the transducer. Having our own technology allowed us to customize a sound system geared towards our cyclists. Making EOSS not only the best, but the safest helmet on the market today to hear audio while cycling.
At the heart of SafeSound, is safety. Our new lab results are in and the SOS Emergency Alert feature is better than ever. It ensures that where ever you are, we got your back covered. With a G-Sensor uniquely positioned within core of the helmet, SafeSound will detect an impact and automatically send an exact mapping of your location, to a list of emergency contacts within the COROS App. At the same time, the LED tail light will begin flashing S.O.S in Morse code for anyone nearby to identify.
We placed comprehensive research and development into our new shape and design of SafeSound. Our premium EPS impact foam enhances the overall effectiveness of the helmet experience. Along with the new design, we were able to shed off 30g of total weight, all while maintaining superior quality build. Making it our lightest helmet ever. The re-positioning of our LED tail light ensured complete and direct visibility to motorists on the road.
Of course, we can’t forget about the overall fit of the helmet. Our SafeSound fit system secures the helmet by requiring minor adjustments. We even dialed-in on the improvement of the helmet strap by introducing a comfortable, yet effective material for the chin-strap. All supported by updated tri-glide sliders to hold both the helmet, and EOSS in place throughout the duration of your ride.
The experience isn’t complete, without functionality. That’s where our Smart Remote comes into play. Our flexible handle-bar mounted cradle ensures optimal placement to minimalize distractions while riding. Giving you complete control over your audio and call functions. From playing/pausing music, skipping tracks, adjusting volume, to answering incoming phone calls, you can now safely manage how you interact with SafeSound while riding.
