Allo Makes Biking Safer With World's First Bike Mount/Speaker Combo
Teen Inventor Benji Miller Launches The Allo on Kickstarter to Give Bike Riders Full Access to Smartphone Features and Apps While Riding
LOS ANGELES, March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Inventor Benji unveiled the Allo (www.theallobikemount.com), the world's first bike mount-speaker combination, giving riders the safest way to access their smartphones while biking.
The Allo was designed with safety and convenience in mind. The Allo's built-in speaker allows riders to safely and easily listen to music, navigation and conduct phone calls. The protective case shields phones from damage during bike rides and has an adjustable mount and quick release feature to allow riders to take the speaker/case with them when they're on foot, in the car or at home.
"I'm passionate about biking and music and saw there was no safe product out there that let me combine the two," said Benji Miller, inventor of the Allo. "After seeing many cyclists illegally and unsafely use their earbuds or phones while riding, I wanted to create a way for people to use their smartphones while still being safe, which is when I first started designing and creating the Allo. With design experts on the team, they fine-tuned the concept to what it is today."
Key benefits of the Allo:
- Full access to smartphone features while riding safe – Listen to music, talk on the phone, use navigation and any of your favorite apps while riding!
- Avoid getting a ticket! – Earbuds while riding are unsafe and illegal in many states. Allo mitigates this risk.
- Maintain awareness – Riders can still hear and see everything around them while using the Allo! It is no worse than listening to the radio in the car.
The first production run of the Allo will be made for the iPhone 5 series and is available to purchase on Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1569782247/the-allo-the-worlds-first-speaker-bike-mount-combo), starting at $40.
