The Omni helmet will keep you safe in other ways too. Two strips of light on the back will illuminate when it gets dark, and an internal crash sensor will alert your family or friends in the event of an accident. These features are similar to the $60 Cosmo Bike light accessory announced earlier this week. With the Omni, however, you get all of these features -- plus the bone-conduction audio -- in a single, cohesive helmet design. Of course, it will also protect your noggin should you happen to take a fall. Finally, there's a handlebar-mounted remote for controlling your tunes mid-ride.

Coros Wearables will launch the helmet for $199.99 later this quarter. (A spokesperson for the company told me it was likely to hit retailers in February.) At the moment, however, the company is running a pre-order campaign on Indiegogo with up to 45 percent off the normal price (the cheapest backer tier at the time of writing is $129). It will be available in black, red, white or blue, and come with a detachable visor and bag.
