So me and a friend are starting to go cycling,

We want something to talk to each other while cycling; without using our phones.

Is there any headsets or anything?

I'm not sure about the range or anything,

Any Suggestions?

Thanks.

    Most of us use our voices.

    Just talk, or shout, also carry a whistle so if the tail end charlie stops he has a decent range to call back the first rider.

    When on motorbike I do agree an INtercom is a good thing, but on bike ??

    Went on tour with my wife: France, Spain, Portugal and probably an intercomwas the last thing I needed duirng our trip - somebody's voice/noise in your ears when you go through stunning green fields / mountains....no, no for me.

    May be my just me though ?

    Being cynical, can I predict the OP's next post will be a survey for a now communications device for cyclists?

    If you need anything more than your voice then you're not cycling with a friend, you're cycling on your own.

    A series of whoops, whoa!, watch it!, holy sh*t! and oh fuuuuuuuuck! is usually how me and my mates communicate when riding our bikes. Save the deep and meaningful stuff for the post ride pint or train / car home :)
