Bicycle Dynamo Charger Or How To Charge your Phone When Biking
In today’s times when everything is connected by technology having a battery charger close is a must! And, while at home, school, work or commuting with your car, charging your gadgets is an easy task, things change when outdooring or biking around for fun or work.

The Bike Dynamo Charger is a cool gadget that charges your iPhone, Android device or GPS unit while riding your bike. The Dynamo Charger attaches to your bike’s frame near the rear wheel and produces energy when in move. The energy is transferred from the dynamo to the handle bar mount by a cable and can charge any USB powered gadget with a power of up to 1A – that’s enough for most smartphones out there including all iPod Touch, iPhone and Android models, most GPS units, digital cameras, MP3 players and even smaller tablets.

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.

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.

If you ever rode a bike on a wet track you know how annoying this can be. All the dirty water and the mud from the track is pushed up by the back wheel and lands on your fancy clothes …

Chrome Bravo Night Rolltop Backpack With 3M Reflective Panel
You like it or not there are times you need to travel after the sun sets! I know it sounds very dramatic, but I am not thinking at “The Walking Dead” type of night travelling to cross the country looking for a safe place to settle, I am thinking more about commuting from work to home, going out to run a couple of errands or grab some grocery or even going to see some friends!

Either you move by walking, biking, skateboarding or whatever other way, when traveling at night your need to stay visible.

The Bravo Night Backpack was designed to help in such situations! The backpack features a rolltop build, has a clean, black design so you can use it at school, work and anywhere else, and features a wide 3M reflective panel visible from up to 100 meters at night.

ALSO READ about the Funnell, The Ejectable Jacket Backpack and the Boblbee Megalopolis Aero Raider’s Back Protector Backpack.

The Bravo Night has an extensible format and, be used as a commuter bag (20 liters volume) as well as a grocery backpack (40 liters expanded), sports a welded-waterproof main compartment made of Cordura canvas to keep your gear safe even in the rain and an easy-to-reach front padded laptop sleeve which can be accessed even if the bag is expanded and full of gear.

Two cross compression straps situated on the front of the backpack were included to allow hauling extra gear such as wheel sets, frames, helmets and wet gear.
