The Allo keeps your phone front and center so you can easily use Maps with amplified voice directions. Make calls and pump up your jams while riding — no earbuds necessary, so you remain aware of the cars around you. And in case of an accident, it keeps your phone protected (you strap a helmet on your head, so why not your phone?) If you head to Allo's Kickstarter, you can grab one for around $40 depending on how fast you act. Otherwise, it will retail for $45. A small price to pay for safety, and for making your bike as phone-friendly as your car.
