smrtGRiPS - The Intelligent Handlebar Grips That Smarten Your Bike
With all technological advancements in the past years many new gadgets and smartphone apps found their way to the market to help bikers better enjoy their rides! But, and unfortunately there’s a “but” here, most of these new generation gadgets require the raider to take his eyes from the road to consult them.

Here’s where the The smrtGRiPS Smart Bicycle Grips come into the game. Just as the Helios Smart Bike Handlebars we featured earlier, the smrtGRiPS are designed to allow you to interact with your smartphone, receive notifications and follow GPS navigation instructions in eyes-free mode. More than that, once the smrtGRiPS addon is installed in your original bike handlebar you’ll be able to use your iPhone or Android smartphone to find your bike if you no longer remember where you parked it, to connect with other bike riders and get separation alerts when group riding as well find your bike in case it gets stolen.
The smrtGRIPS are in project mode at Kickstarter and you can get one pair for an early bird price of $59. Estimated delivery for July-August 2015.

Bygen Hank - The Collapsible Direct Drive Bike
The Bygen Hank Direct Bike proposes an innovative approach to classic space-saver folding bikes – a collapsible frame that slides back and forth based on the usage instance hooked-up to a direct drive system with pedals attached to the back wheel. The Bygen Hank bicycle is produced in Korea, weights less than 22 lbs (that’s less than 10KG), features a sliding carbon fiber frame which helps reducing its size when not in use, a foldable handle to make it even more compact and 20-in wheels. According to Bygen, the elimination of the bike chain results in 7-8% power increase at the same pedaling frequency.

ALSO CHECK the Transporter Commuter Bike With Trunk Wheel,the HMK 561Corbon Fiber Electric Bike and the Bicymple No-Chain Bike.

The Bygen bike will go on sale on the Korean market in October, with overseas release scheduled sometime after and will set you back a whopping $5,000 US (the price will probably lower as distribution widens).
