Los Angeles, CA (February 11, 2015) – Outdoor Tech® is proud to announce a new partnership with Giro Sport Design for Giro’s 2016 product line, which will include Outdoor Tech’s Bluetooth wireless CHIPS® that have forever changed the course of on-snow audio by adding a new dimension of sound, simplicity and convenience to helmets.
“Outdoor Tech has been an innovator in bringing simplicity, integration, premium sound and clean design to wireless audio accessories,” says Giro Product Manager Daniel Boccia. “At Giro, we’re proud to partner with a brand that embodies the same product ethos of designing new products to enhance the ride.”
“We couldn’t be happier to have an amazing brand like Giro as a partner going into next season. Since they are widely known as a leader in design, style and technology, it is the most natural fit imaginable between our innovative brands,” states Adam Janecka, VP of Sales at Outdoor Tech®. “Giro fans can now opt for a premium sound system to match their top tier helmet. This season they can finally have both.”
Wireless CHIPS® drop into any Giro snow helmet with audio-ready earpads and give your runs down the mountain the soundtrack they deserve. The patented tactile and glove friendly 2-button interface changes tracks, adjusts volume, plays/pauses music, takes calls and activates voice command, meaning no fishing the phone from your jacket or fumbling for tiny buttons with numb fingers – super simple. Complete with a built-in microphone and IPX4 sweat and water-resistant rating, these are tested to work perfectly down to -20°C/-4°F (no more frozen button syndrome). These latest CHIPS® also offer technology upgrades like Bluetooth 4.0, improved Hi-Fi audio quality, voice prompts and battery level indicators giving users vital information without taking their helmet off.
