One of the few accessories we recommend having on hand for a CycleCast ride is headphones. Although you could play your ride’s audio out loud, having headphones will make you feel more immersed in your ride. Not to mention, if you are in a public place, having headphones is a common courtesy!

Any headphones would do the trick, but we find wireless headphones allow us to optimize our rides! During rides, wireless headphones make getting out of the saddle much easier as you don’t have to worry about your headphone wires being long enough! And as we know, many of our technology is moving away from wired connectivity Benefits include portability - they do not get tangled and they are lightweight.
