Bone Conduction Audio – How does it work?

Bone conduction bypasses the eardrums so your ears remain open and unimpeded. Sound waves are converted into vibrations and delivered through your upper cheekbones. The cochlea receives the vibrations, bypassing the ear canal and ear drum. For cyclists this is super important because that means you can hear audio and hear your surroundings as you ride, such as cars and other potentially dangerous obstacles.

The Smart Remote is mounted to your handlebars in whatever configuration you like. With the remote, control volume, skip tracks, pause music, take calls and more (ex: future programming) without stopping to fumble with your phone. Think of it as the silent partner of the Coros LINX RideAware™ audio platform. It gives riders an easy, safe way to control how they amp up their ride.

Note: A group communication accessory will be sold separately in the future, and the Smart Remote has a button reserved for easy integration.
