September 9th, 2016


We’re happy to announce a competition in partnership with Damson Audio, a Yorkshire-based tech company offering a range of exciting and innovative audio and visual gear.

We’re interested in HeadBones in particular because their technology means they’re suitable to wear while cycling without impacting your ability to hear what’s going on around you.

What’s the Prize and how do I enter?

There are five prizes on offer.

All five winners will receive a pair of tickets to the Cycle Show in Birmingham, and the overall winner will win a pair of tickets and a pair of Damson HeadBones.

The competition is a good old fashioned caption contest: to be in for a chance to win you just have to leave a caption to the following picture –  leave your entry in the comments at the bottom of the page:

The winners will be chosen on 15th September 2016. Please leave your email address with the comment so we can contact you if you win! This will not display publicly.

What are HeadBones?

HeadBones aren’t headphones. They use bone conduction technology to deliver the music to your brain in a completely different way.

The bone conduction element of the design features that two pads which rest just in front of your ears, and vibrate directly onto your head . Your skull’s natural acoustic properties mean that the sound is transferred directly to your inner ear.

You can hear the music in high fidelity, and also hear what’s going on around you with perfect clarity.


A pair of HeadBones, more information can be found here

What is the Cycle Show?

The Cycle Show is one of the biggest events in the cycling calendar, hosted in the NEC Birmingham between 23-25 September 2016.

The 15th anniversary of the event, and it looks to be a good one. Last year’s event was the biggest-ever, and featured a record-breaking number of bike companies; this year there will be even more. They will be exhibiting the forefront of cycling design and technology.

Medal winners and cycling stars are set to make an appearance, too: Martyn Ashton, Ed Clancy, Callum Skinner, Joanna Rowsell-Shand, and Chris Boardman will be there, among others.

Check out the event here.

Good luck!
