“Solos was designed for the most dedicated cyclist in mind. A
‘Bio-Inspired’ philosophy ensures every detail of its design is
engineered to seamlessly integrate with the way human body moves and
operates,” said Dr. Ernesto Martinez, Director of Sports Performance
Wearables of Solos. “Solos delivers a truly holistic platform of
critical sensory information to a cyclist, which can be shared with
trainers, coaches, teammates and friends.”

Solos has been carefully analyzed and tested in wind tunnels to ensure
optimal comfort and reduced drag when in use. Resting comfortably on the
face, the minimalist and flexible design enables Solos to be compatible
with any aerodynamic helmet. It features anti-slip temple and nose pads
for ultimate grip during high-intensity training. The frames are built
to be ultra-durable with high-end polycarbonate that shields from
impact, wind, dust and shocks.

A key design element of Solos is the Vista™ virtual screen. It
measures only 4mm in height, as small as the size of a human pupil,
allowing see-through/see-around vision, while showcasing a large 5-inch
virtual display with bright, high-resolution color graphics. The screen
cuts glare so images can be easily read on the sunniest of days. A new nSight
opto-mechanical adjustment further enhances comfort and minimizes eye
strain when worn on longer training sessions or trails.

Solos monitors performance metrics such as heart rate, speed, power,
pace, cadence, distance, duration, and other Bluetooth and ANT+
compatible data. The Solos app captures, streams and syncs data,
allowing cyclists to customize workouts while keeping track of target
performance levels. It also supports existing training programs and new
tool development that enables users to see progress and heighten
performance capabilities.

A unique feature of Solos is Whisper™ advanced voice extraction
technology that allows voice commands to control the display settings
like caller ID, notifications and social media without lifting a finger.
The integrated near-ear stereo speaker system with ambient monitoring
provides optimal control of volume levels to deliver performance cues
that can be clearly heard above the noise of the road and wind.

Solos incorporates a new SiMax™ Li-ion battery which has double the
energy density compared to other commercial Li-ion batteries. The SiMax
battery enables a sleek design of Solos, while providing riders with up
to 10 hours in a single charge, perfect for long triathlons or
mountainous cycling where outlets are not easily accessed.

Strava integration technology allows users to download GPS routes and
upload recorded activity to share with friends. Once the account has
been connected with Strava, all training sessions will automatically
transfer to them, so sharing information with teammates and friends is
hassle-free. Delivering advanced performance metrics to iOS and Android
phones, Solos comes equipped with Ant+ technology that enables wearable
and smartphone devices to effectively share health data. The
all-inclusive platform and sensory indicators provide enhanced metrics
such as speed, power, pace, heart rate, distance, duration, and other
Bluetooth and Ant+ compatible information.

Solos will be available Q2 2016 for an MSRP of $499.

Solos will be displayed CES 2016 at Fitness and Technology Marketplace,
Sands A-B Booth #74334. Click
