Get into the rhythm!
Humming and singing your favourite songs whilst riding your bike is rubbish. Unless you are Mick Jagger, in which case you probably pootle around in a jet-powered zeppelin/casino and leave your Grifter at home. We digress. The point is cyclists need something that plays their music out loud as they pedal along the tarmac. Step forward the sleek Lavod Bike MP3 Speaker and Flashlight
This handlebar-mounted gizmo
blasts out your favourite tunes
so you can rock and roll without tangling with potentially dangerous headphones. What’s more it enables riders to hear tweetering birds alongside the melodious strains of Cannibal Corpse.
Charge and transfer music
As you’ve probably guessed, the Lavod Speaker is USB-friendly
. Simply plug it in and drag your songs onto its 2GB onboard memory
. Easy, and you won’t need to faff about with batteries because this beautifully engineered gadget is charged via your computer
, its rechargeable battery delivering a whopping 8-10 hours
of continuous playback. Perfect for epic outings.
Twist to skip tracks
The Lavod’s speaker is surprisingly loud, pumping out crisp, taxi driver annoying sonics. But how do you control it when you’re riding? Simple, just slide up the spring-loaded control tube and twist it to skip tracks
, adjust volume or toggle through stations. It’s easier than dinging your bell.
LED flashlight modes: flashing/full beam/off
You needn’t worry about sullying your bike’s good looks because this unobtrusive music machine is finished in smart anodised metal
, and its ingenious 360 degree pivoting mount is made of clear plastic. Did we also mention that the whole thing is weatherproof
? Well it is, so there. You even get an LED flashlight
that fits on the non-speaker end. Forget the Darkness (we have), this powerful multi-mode add-on is brilliant. Literally.
Cool, compact and weatherproof!
Potential thieves will hate the Lavod because its quick release
handlebar mount means you can whip it off when you park up. You can then plug it into your computer and, like your good friends at Firebox, stroke it in all its tubular glory as you gaze out the window at…erm, what’s left of your bike. Drat. In all this excitement we forgot to lock up our tandem.
