“The Solos Team has worked directly with professional cyclists to
ascertain the critical feedback for smart eyewear that would optimize
their performance in a minimalist, functional and fashionable design,”
commented Dr. Ernesto Martinez, Project Leader of Solos. “The key
insights included, keeping it lightweight, streamlined, intuitive to
operate and minimize eyes off the road. These design pillars are evident
throughout Solos, giving riders exactly what they need and nothing that
they don’t.”

Solos employs a display which measures only 4mm in height, as small as
the size of a human pupil, yet casts a large 5-inch virtual screen with
bright, high-resolution full color graphics. Solos provides a wide range
of adjustability, allowing cyclists to modify the position of the
display based on their unique riding posture like training for a
triathlon, hitting a century ride, or blazing through mountain trails.
The translucent virtual screen provides a vibrant and bright, sunlight
readable image that cuts glare to maximize visual clarity and provide a
safe experience for any journey whether it’s a dimly lit morning ride,
bright daylight ride or setting stride into the evening sunset.

Aerodynamically Designed for Maximum Speed and Comfort

From the form factor to material selection, every design decision behind
Solos was meticulously analyzed and tested in wind tunnels to ensure
minimal drag and optimal comfort. Ergonomically designed, Solos
comfortably rests on any cyclists face, blends seamlessly with the
helmet and features anti-slip temple and nose pads for ultimate grip
during high-intensity training. The lightweight and flexible frames are
crafted with the industry’s most durable high-end polycarbonate to
protect from impact, wind, dust and shocks.

Bio-Inspired Technology

Solos embraces a “Bio-Inspired” design philosophy which signifies that
every element of the product is engineered to seamlessly integrate with
your body. With an in-depth understanding of human physiology, Solos
displays an easily adjustable viewing position that minimizes strain on
the eye from long-term rides. Solos also includes advanced voice
extraction technology that allows voice commands to control the display
settings without lifting a finger. The integrated near-ear stereo
speaker system with ambient monitoring provides dynamic volume control
to deliver performance cues that can be clearly heard above the noise of
the road and wind.

A Powerful Ecosystem

Kopin’s Solos provides a holistic platform of sensory information, and
delivers enhanced performance metrics such as heart rate, speed, power,
pace, cadence, distance, duration, and other Bluetooth and ANT+
compatible data. Solos pairs with your smartphone to access caller ID,
notifications and social media. The Solos app captures, streams and
syncs data, allowing cyclists to fine-tune their workouts and closely
track target performance levels in real-time. It also supports existing
training programs and new tool development allowing users to optimize
their training experience.

Solos will be displayed for the first time at Interbike 2015 at booth
#14029. Please contact PR representatives Mara Castro or Kristen
Mondshein to schedule in-person demos or interviews with the Solos team.
