Helios - The Smart Bike Handlebars!
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?

Schwinn CycleNav Or How To Get GPS Navigation On Your Bike
Built by the icon bike manufacturer Schwinn, the CycleNav was conceived to improve your next bike ride by bringing GPS navigation (and much more) to the experience!

ALSO READ HandleBand – The Universal Smartphone Bike Mount and Bikepod – The Bicycle Handlebar Camera Tripod.

The Schwinn CycleNav relies on your smartphone’s GPS to find the best route, calculate distances and turns, and the information is transferred via dedicated Android and iOs apps using low-energy Bluetooth 4.0 technology. Basically, the CycleNav allows you to navigate via light signals and voice commands (which helps you keep your eyes on the road … where they should be anyway!), while being able to track traveled distances, ride length, speed, burned calories and so on … The device also sports a built-in headlight with a battery life of around 10 hours of continuous usage to help you light your way during night rides.

Transform Your Old Bicycle Into An Electric Commuter Bike With This Smart Wheel

Electric bikes become more and more popular every day. And for good reason – they’re cheap to maintain, cheap on energy consumption, do not require much parking space and have a reasonable transport speed for daily commuting. Also check these cool electric scooters we featured earlier: Voltitude Foldable Electric Scooter and the Moveo.

There are two ways to get into the electric bike commuting bandwagon – the first is the classical way: buy an electric bike (dah!!!). The second option is to upgrade your existing bike and equip it with electric propulsion. Just as the Rubbee Electrical Wheel Drive, the FlyKly Smart Wheel is designed to upgrade your existing bike and improve your riding experience by reducing the physical legwork to ride your bike!

Simply remove your bicycle’s back wheel, mount the FlyKly Smart Wheel in it’s place and you’re ready to ride. The smart wheel is compatible with most bikes out-there and can be controlled and monitored via a free smartphone app (iOS, Android and Pebble compatible). Here’s how the guys from FlyKly describe their propulsion system:

Smart Wheel is a pedal assist which means it helps you ride your bike effortlessly. The motor turns on when you start pedaling and begins accelerating to your desired speed. It stops when you stop. It saves you time by getting you to your destination faster and gets you there without losing your breath or breaking a sweat. There’s no need to worry about what to wear to that business meeting or 8 o’clock date.”

The FlyKly is in project mode at Kickstarter and you can procure one for the introductory price of $590.

The airbag helmet has an ON/OFF switch that assures against accidental deployment. Simply place the airbag around your neck, clip the button to activate the helmet and you’re ready to go. The airbag sports intelligent sensors and will deploy only in case of an accident (check the 3 minutes clip above to see exactly how it works).
