Rick and JT even talk about some of the tech he uses with the Badgers. Great to have Jonathan on “Tech of Sports.”
Raycon, is the new celeb-led CE company co-founded by Ray J, the charismatic young entrepreneur, who “cruised” in to the tech world on the Scoot-e-bike e-bicycle he introduced in 2016 and recently sealed a $31 million deal with distributor Cowboy Electronics for a full-scale CE lifestyle brand. Raycon pulled back the curtain on its introductory line-up at CES and it was great to see and talk to Ray J.
Ray J has teamed up with the CE lifestyle leaders at Cowboy to launch the Raycon line of gear, which marries sleek style, the latest technology – and accessibly for everyone. The introductory Raycon line features attractive, on-trend designs in hot colors and matte finishes. From rose gold wireless headphones and eye-catching digital smartwatches to portable cannon-style speakers and wireless sound bars, the new collection stands apart from the pack by delivering aspirational high-quality CE without steep price tags.
Among its assortment of products in the most sought-after categories, Raycon is rolling out head-turning electronic bikes and scooters – poised to be the “it” items for 2018. The company’s debut 100% electric, “green” offerings include the Hyper Flight SB-2 Electric Bike, a brand-new model of the Scoot-E Bike that Ray J first introduced in 2016 as a precursor to today’s Raycon range. Fans of the incredible electric bike include Justin Bieber, Snoop Dogg (who also happens to be Ray J’s first cousin!) and Diddy, among others. Also set to make tracks as part of the new assortment is the Hyper Flight Electric Scooter.
Whether it’s commuting to work, working-out or hanging out and listening to their favorite tracks, Raycon products seamlessly deliver style and function for users every day.
