Helios - The Smart Bike Handlebars!

Helios THE DROP BAR And THE BULLHORN Bike Handle Bars And iPhone App


Helios is an impressive new bicycle accessory that aims to turn your bike into a connected “smart” bike.
The handlebar comes in two versions: The Bullhorn and the Drop Bar and sports a great kit of features designed to improve your biking experience: a 500 lumen LED light built-in the bar will help you light your way in the night, proximity sensor which will turn ON and OFF your bike lights based on your presence near the the bicycle, two back lights (positioned in the back-facing side of the handlebar) can be used for turn signals, visual speedometer (the light changes color based on your actual speed) and ambient lightning. As this was not enough, a low-power GPS unit in the handlebar will help you track your whereabouts, get turn-by-turn navigation instruction (the back-facing handlebar lights will let you know where to turn left or right) and track your bike in case it’s stolen (simply slide a SIM card into the handle and, by simply sending and SMS the bike will reply sending you a Google maps link with your bicycle’s location). How cool is that?
