Terrano XT is a unique hands-free communication device that allows you to answer calls, listen to music, and even communicate rider-to-rider. Using voice commands and a headphone that sits outside of the ear, you can keep both hands on the handlebars, hear surrounding noise, and enjoy being fully connected to the riders around you. Terrano just announced a partnership with the Canyon//SRAM Racing team, giving them a step up in their training safety and communication.

For 2019, Terrano has announced a partnership with the Canyon//SRAM racing team, providing them with the hands-free device. While it doesn’t appear that they legally can use it during official competition, it will allow for improved safety during training, and better communication while scouting courses. Team rider, Tanja Erath, commented,
“I’m looking forward so see how the use of the Terrano system influences our communication within the team while inspecting a race course or training. Especially for TTT (team time trial) preparation, I can see Terrano working well. Voice activation allows you to keep your hands on the extensions to keep yourself and your teammates safe, with still being able to pay attention to the surrounding road noises. The best feature for me as a weak climber is the possibility of 1.5 km reach. It allows me to stay in contact with the strong climbers to keep them informed about my pain cave!”
A single Terrano XT system will run you $249, with a pair costing $459. Using the free Terrano Connect App, it harks back to an era of pro cycling with team radios and tactics – combined with modern cell phone integration, music, and safety. Available now from Amazon, or at the link below.
