Ride your bike, let the music flow free… If you are the type who brings music everywhere — or just want to trick out your ride with some audio stylings — a new speaker designed by Scosche was made for you.
The boomBOTTLE, available starting today, is a mobile speaker that fits into a water bottle cage. Simply connect your Bluetooth streaming device (like a phone), slip the speaker into your bottle cage, and let the good tunes roll.
We haven’t tested it yet. But here are a few facts in case you’re into rolling and sharing your taste in music with the world.
> The boomBOTTLE is made with a non-slip TPU exterior, and the company claims it is durable enough to withstand drops or vibration from rough riding
> The speaker is “weatherproof,” meaning rain and puddles shouldn’t be a problem (just don’t take it swimming)
> Dual 44mm drivers and a subwoofer provide “360 degree sound” thanks to an omnidirectional diffuser, the brand cites
> Powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery (charged by micro USB for up to 10 hours of playback)
With a wireless range of 33 feet, the boomBOTTLE can be set up at home or an office, too. It retails for $149.99 here, and the company says it will be available in big-box retailers soon.
Final comment: Riders, please choose your music wisely. We’ll all be listening out there.
