Featuring a better-ventilated and more lightweight option than their previous smart helmet, Coros’ Omni is a tech’d out training lid for those who require constant connectivity. The USB-rechargeable battery lasts well over six hours and powers a self-contained auto darkness-sensing rear LED light, open-ear headphone system, and a wind-shrouded mic for Bluetooth 4.1 smartphone use. Music plays surprisingly loud, while phone call audio and audio prompts for time, distance, and average speed are best in less windy situations.

Using an on-board light sensor, the rear-facing LEDs automatically switch on as darkness falls. And while you can use the remote to manually activate the lights, no there’s no turn signal feature…yet.
