  • As a completely wireless speaker, the Buckshot connects users to their phone, computer, tablet or music device via an inbuilt Bluetooth connection. With a connection range of 32 feet, the Buckshot provides a portable speaker option for active customers with the added benefit of hands-free phone use at a distance.

  • A minimal and practical structure, the Buckshot is designed with the customer in mind. Easy to operate, the Buckshot is controlled by three simple function buttons. Music is easily played, paused and volume adjusted with the function buttons - which double as phone controls to receive, end and redial phone calls. This simplistic design also makes the Buckshot portable for active users. Measuring 9cm in length and weighing less than 150grams, the Buckshot is easy to transport. The minimalist design also means affordability - priced at just $79, new speaker technology is now accessible to a wider range of consumers.

  • The rugged, rubberised exterior of the Buckshot make it a perfect speaker for extreme sports and outdoor use. Designed to the IPX5 level of water and dust resistance, the Buckshot speaker can withstand rain and debris. The shock resistant body means it can resist being thrown, dropped or any other outdoor wear and tear that may come with everyday use.

  • With impressive battery life given from its lithium-ion rechargeable battery, the Buckshot speaker promises 16 hours of play and talk time - and delivers. The rechargeable battery eliminates the need for constant replacement and means owners are using the best battery for their product.

    The Buckshot's custom designed handlebar mount easily secures the speaker to bike handlebars, providing a sturdy option for use on the go. A lightweight and flexible product, the inclusion of the mount with all Buckshot purchases eliminates the need to purchase additional accessories before using the speaker. The rubber mount attaches to and detaches from handlebars with ease, guaranteeing portability and ensuring a fuss-free process for Buckshot users.
