When you ride with ear buds in you exclude yourself from everyone else on the ramp. The beat might be pumping but you're missing out on the conversations at the park. The Vigor Audio helmets have a different solution. Basically you are in the middle of the transportable speaker that is inside your helmet. Your ears aren't covered so you can hear traffic and the cracking jokes of your mates on the platform but you still get to listen to your favourite music. The blue tooth connection with your phone or music player connects with the helmet and you just hit play and the music starts. The three buttons take care of the easy control of going to the next track, pauze, track back and turning the sound up or down. The built in USB port lets you charge the helmet for the next 6 hour session. The 14 vents keep you fresh on a hot day or when you're sweating like a pig at the indoor park.
