As opposed to when driving, listening to music or making phone calls while cycling can be extremely dangerous without the right equipment, and the Coros Omni helmet is a new piece of cycling gear that helps cyclists to stay connected without putting themselves in harm's way. The helmet comes with a host of technological features, chief among them a bone conduction audio system that makes the road far safer.

Without the Coros Omni, cyclists have two options for talking on the phone or listening to music: they can either put headphones in and effectively tune out the sounds of the road, or they can blast music and calls from speakers, bothering pedestrians and making their conversations wholly public. The smart helmet from Coros offers the best of both worlds, as the bone conduction tech lets consumers listen to audio without having to plug their ears, yet keeping that audio contained to the rider alone.
