Frequently Asked Questions
How does Coros™ Bone Conduction Technology work?
Bone Conduction bypasses the eardrums and leaves ears open. Sound waves are converted into vibrations delivered through your upper cheekbones. The Cochlea receives the vibrations, bypassing the ear canal and ear drum. For cyclists this is super important because that means you can hear audio AND hear your surroundings as you ride, such as cars and other potentially dangerous obstacles.
Are Coros helmets certified?
Yes. The Coros LINX Smart Cycling Helmet is certified in the U.S. (Consumer Protection Safety Commission) and Europe.
Where can I buy a Coros helmet?
Helmets will be available first on Kickstarter on September 7-October 24, 2016. We will then be available at retail outlets during holiday. We recommend you do your holiday shopping on Kickstarter and get a great deal.
What kind of warranty does my helmet come with?
A full one-year warranty. If something breaks, contact us and we will either fix it at no charge, or set you up with a new one. Keep your receipt!
How often should I replace my helmet?
Industry standard is to replace your helmet every 2-3 years, and/or any time you have a severe impact because the integrity (safety) of the helmet could be compromised.
Is my helmet water proof?
Your helmet can withstand a lot of water. Don’t swim with it, but feel free to ride in heavy rains all day long.
How do I link my smart phone to my helmet?
Check out the manual on the website. That should clarify all of your questions on linking Bluetooth, and how to properly use your helmet.
How do I become an ambassador for Coros?
Ah, glad you asked. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you are excited about Coros LINX and want to help us get the word out as an ambassador.
How much battery life does my helmet have?
10+ hours of play/talk time, but we have seen the battery last much, much longer.
Do I need to carry my phone?
To get the full benefit of Coros LINX Smart Helmet, you need to have your Bluetooth-enabled device with you so it’s in Bluetooth proximity. However, if you want to ride disconnected for a bit, just put the helmet on and ride with the same safety benefits of a non-tech enabled helmet.
