BONX Grip Brings Wearable Bluetooth Communication to Cycling


Already a huge success in Japan, BONX is reimagining the art of communication. Originally launched late last year, the outdoor group-talk technology brand ran a crowd-funding campaign in Japan with great response, surpassing their initial funding target quickly and going on to become the most well-funded campaign ever in Japan. BONX is now ready the rest of the world, beginning with the Indiegogo campaign that started today. Having already shipped product to early backers in Japan, Bonx expects to be shipping to American backers later this year. 

An avid cyclist, Takahiro Miyasaka, CEO of BONX became frustrated with the current status of communication while riding with his friends, “I thought, wouldn’t it be nice if we could have real—time communication for outdoor activities.”

A Bluetooth earpiece, BONX Grip connects to an original smartphone app to facilitate unique group conversation, which only transmits voice when a user speaks and is optimized for outdoor environment with unstable cellular reception. Dual microphones with multilayer wind and noise reduction technology ensure crystal-clear speech, and there is no distance limit, thanks to data transmission over standard cellular networks. BONX Grip is water and shock-resistant. It’s uniquely designed to stay put during rigorous outdoor activities, and maintains maximum comfort with a choice of three different sized earbuds.

With a suggested retail of $139.99, the BONX Grip comes in 4 colorways – black, white, pink, and green.
