Just as The Quest ain’t your kid’s RPG, Cy-Fi ‘s iPod and Bluetooth speakers aren’t your average run-to-the-beach bicycle speakers. And, at 159$ for either model (Kleer or Bluetooth) also ain’t your casual, cheap portable speaker. I’ll be honest here, I’ve searched for years for a perfect way to listen to my music whilst riding and tested everything from earbuds to custom earphones. But as you can guess, deafening your ears to the outside is extremely dangerous. Actually, putting anything in your ears while riding is dangerous, no matter how much the trail or road needs the fellowship of music. For this very reason, Cy-Fi’s wireless bicycle speakers simply rock for the serious rider.
Update: Our review of the Cy-Fi wireless speakers can be found here
CyFi, maker of great outdoor-oriented speakers for both the iPod and for other portables, have a couple of surprises for TouchMyApps. While the actual arrival date isn’t known (the mystery), both the A2DP and Kleer Wireless version will arrive sometime in August for review. Mark my words – I’ll be on those like Oprah on a cupcake (the intrigue).
Up till now, I have been using various sports-oriented earphones for riding, an option which is by far the most streamlined, but dangerous avenue available. Not to mention, constantly looking over my shoulder, running sprints and trackstand excercises, makes cabled audio a pain.
Both the Kleer and the A2DP version are available for 159$.
