This is smart for cycling: when Garmin’s Varia headlight is connected to one of the brand’s GPS devices, it factors rider speed into the way it throws light. The faster you go, the farther ahead it looks. Garmin also offers a Varia bundle that includes the smart headlight and equally nifty tail-light.

Logic suggests that a bigger, heavier bike lock is a better bike lock. But if you’re carrying an 8-pound U-Lock in your pack, the 2.2-pound Litelok will sound pretty good. It also looks cool. Litelok’s creators used multiple innovative lightweight materials to create the composite strap, a material they call Boaflexicore. This material can withstand sustained attacks from hacksaws, bolt croppers & cable cutters. A funded Kickstarter project.
