CTS Partners with SOLOS Smart Glasses to Give Coaches and Athletes Access to Cutting-Edge Technology

WESTBOROUGH, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kopin Corporation (NASDAQ: KOPN) SOLOS™ Smart Glasses and CTS are
teaming up in 2019 with a new partnership that will provide CTS coaches,
athletes, and training camp participants access to innovative,
high-performance SOLOS Smart Glasses. This partnership will bring
together a company at the leading edge of performance-enabled wearable
technology with a leader in the endurance sports coaching space to help
athletes better utilize their real-time performance data to improve both
effectiveness and safety when training.

SOLOS Smart Glasses provide athletes with critical in-workout
performance data in its high-resolution heads-up display and integrated
stereo speakers, allowing athletes to focus on the road or trail ahead,
rather than looking down at their bike computer, GPS watch, or smart
phone. Athletes can choose to display metrics such as heart rate, speed,
power, pace, cadence, distance, and other ANT+ and Bluetooth compatible
data. SOLOS’ latest app update also gives athletes the option to import
TrainingPeaks structured workouts and be coached through the workout
specifics with visual and audio cues, directly through the headset.

“This is an exciting partnership for us here at CTS because the SOLOS
smart glasses are not only going to help our athletes improve their
training and push the boundaries of their performance, but this
innovative new technology is going to help address a growing problem I
hear about all the time from athletes – safety out on the roads,” said
CTS Founder and CEO Chris Carmichael. “Now with the integrated
capability of having all the important real-time metrics and audio
features in a heads-up solution, athletes can keep their eyes off their
bike computer and focus on the road. This is game-changing technology
that is going to have a large positive impact on athletes’ training and
safety.”

“We are very excited to announce our strategic partnership with CTS, and
look forward to working together with one of the most successful
endurance sport coaching companies in the world,” said SOLOS General
Director Ernesto Martinez. “Starting from our initial co-development
with USA Cycling and Team USA athletes for the 2016 Rio Olympics, to our
technology integration with TrainingPeaks, SOLOS remains committed to
bringing the most advanced performance enhancing experience to the
athletic community.”

Scott Fliegelman, SOLOS’ Sr. Director of Marketing and Sales, will
attend select CTS camps to present the benefits of SOLOS and provide
athletes a personalized demonstration experience. Scott is the former
owner and head coach of FastForward Sports, a five-time IRONMAN, an
XTERRA Regional Age Group Champion, and 2018 Haute Route Rockies
finisher.

SOLOS Smart Glasses will be available to CTS-coached athletes at a
discounted rate via the CTS Athlete Perks Program.
