Last week it was a bike helmet with safety lights, this week, we found an even smarter brain bucket. The LIVALL Bling helmet features integrated safety lights, a bluetooth speaker, & windproof microphone for phone calls while you ride. When you flip over the bars into oncoming traffic, a built-in G-sensor sends out an SOS signal so help arrives hopefully in time.
You may not care about the tiny bit of weight the water bottle cage adds to your bike but the folks at Fabric do. That’s why they’ve developed this cage-free bike bottle. Plastic studs fitted into the cage holes in your frame hold the BPA-free 600ml bottle in place with integrated retainer clips. Weight: 1.5 grams. Available September 2015.
Iris Skateboards found yet another use for recycled skate decks. Their custom surfboards are covered with a thin veneer of the recycled wood. Inside, these boards feature a standard EPS foam core, which also uses recycled foam. Random patterns and color combos make each Iris Surfboard unique.
Instead of clipping & zip-tying lights onto your helmet for those cool night rides, the Lumos has a much cleaner & more aerodynamic solution. Brake lights, turn signals & headlights are integrated into this safety certified helmet. A remote handlebar control allows you to activate the blinkers & an accelerometer makes the brake lights automatic. Rechargeable battery, water resistant. Fully funded on Kickstarter.
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.
Nike’s offshoot Jordan brand just introduced the Flight Runner Golf shoe, bringing the look of a Freesole-inspired Nike runner to the country club green. The shoe features a mesh upper and Flywire lacing for lightweight comfort but also provides the proven grip & stability of Tri-Lock soft spikes.
The Vapor Speed Driver was designed by and for Tiger Woods. This driver combines Nike’s FlyBeam-reinforced Covert Cavity Back design and a new Compression Channel all packed into a smaller head shape; a design that creates more stability, better launch conditions and faster ball speeds.
The electric wakeboard has arrived. This new carbon-kevlar watersport vehicle combines the speed of wakeboarding with the freedom of surfing—but you don’t need waves, this board has a built-in jet-propulsion motor that reaches speeds up to 25 knots. The battery lasts 30-minutes running at full speed and re-charges in just 1 hour.
Clean lines and a smooth, uncluttered exterior make the Thousand bike helmet a standout. The decidedly lo-fi look belies the tech: Seven air vents, a vegan leather chin strap & a pop-out port that allows you to lock it up with your bike.
This new runner’s watch from Garmin features a super-accurate built-in heart rate monitor designed by Mio. It is also equipped with a whole arsenal of activity tracking technologies. Yeah, now you can run without the awkward chest strap.
