There has been a deeper need for a reliable music listening system for bikers. It is dangerous to use a headphone and awkward to attach a boombox to your bicycle. A crazy Kickstarter project from San Francisco-based designer David Meisenholder is clear effort to deal with the brewing demand. What Meisenholder has prototyped is a tiny rubber wireless speaker called the SleekSpeak to attach with your bike for music on the go.
The SleekSpeak is a highly flexible way to listen to music while moving on a bike. Riders can connect their smartphone or MP3 player with the wireless speaker over Bluetooth. The high power speaker is capable to deliver full range voice at more than 80db. That means the music will hit the rider’s ears overcoming the noise from traffic or wind. The best part with the SleekSpeak is that it features a unique stretchy silicone rubber strap to let you hook it up anywhere on your bike.
The wireless speaker for bicycles is made of strong rubber skin. Hence, it is naturally water-resistant, dustproof, shock and impact-free. Even in rainy days, you can bicycle on the road listening to your favorite songs. You can fix the tool anywhere on your bicycle from its handlebars to non-cylindrical top tube. The stretchy strap will stick the SleekSpeak up on the bicycle that you can even ride through rough and pothole-studded paths bravely.
Meisenholder plans to roll out the SleekSpeak in several impressive color options. Customers can choose different colors for the skin and trim of the device. On Kickstarter, the pledged goal of the SleekSpeak project is $75,000 out of which the project has already racked up $6,179 from around 70 users.
