Kopin: Solos

Performance eyewear integrating heads-up technology, enabling cyclists to react to performance data in real-time and with minimal distraction.

When Kopin, a leading developer of innovative wearable technologies, set out to introduce a brand and product platform of their own they reached out to Essential.

Leveraging insights gained through evaluative research and in-field concept testing, Essential’s interaction design, industrial design, and engineering teams helped evolve Kopin’s initial performance cycling headset concept into a compelling production-ready design.

Designed with aspiring and elite cyclists and coaches in mind, the performance eyewear allows users to customize their riding performance data and stream it to the integrated heads-up display, allowing them to adapt training or racing effort at-a-glance, in real time.
