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?

LockBox - The Portable Waterproof Safety Box Wallet
There are many situations in life when your fancy, minimalist, cool leather wallet simply won’t cut it! Think about going to the sandy beach, jogging, cycling, walking in the rain or even diving into the pool in a hot, sunny afternoon! Obviously, you can find alternate solutions like wrapping your existing wallets into a plastic baggy or leaving it home, but you get my point – why not make yourself a favor and buy a cool waterproof minimalist wallet?

Built by 2 Spanish cyclists to answer the specific need of protecting their gear from the elements and sweat while racing their bikes, the LockBox is a minimalist wallet made of platinum silicone (incorporates platinum in the silicone composition to improve properties of the conventional material) which allows you to carry a couple of coins, keys, memory cards, a handful of bills and credit cards or even a wedding ring if needed (don’t think about what I thought!!!) in full protection against water, dust, snow and mud. The silicone wallet is rated to resist temperatures between -60 to 230 degrees Celsius (that’s around -76 to 446 degrees Fahrenheit), it’s soft silicone shell is perfect for sports which present the risk of falling or bumping into other persons or things, features exchangeable shells, a raised jaw lock for improved security and tightness and it does very well the job it was designs for – protect your gear!

I used this wallet for the past couple of weeks in situations where using a regular wallet was not appropriate (playing in snow, jogging, being caught by rain) and my gear was always OK. For those worried about it’s small size, here’s what I carried around – two $20 notes, two apartment keys (I placed them in the coin placings), one credit card, 3 business cards and one Micro SD card inserted into a SD card adapter. Cool, handy and reliable …
Please take a minute and watch the attached video for a demonstration of the LockBox in action.

Mammut Pro Avalanche Protection Airbag Pack
I don’t know about you but I was always afraid of avalanches! While skiing and snowboarding in official resorts seems a bit safer, not the same can be said about wild trails! Make sure you always stay protected by using an avalanche airbag like the Mammut Pro 35L Airbag Pack.

Just as the NorthFace Patrol 24, the Mammut avalanche airbag is designed to deploy in case of avalanche emergency and keep you at or near the surface. The airbag deploys in 3 seconds and, as it is placed on your shoulders, will not interfere with your field of vision. Other than the useful airbag feature, the Mammut Pro also features a generous storage space, a removable snowboard carrier, a soft-lined ski goggles pocket, an U-shaped aluminum frame to support the load and helps transfer weight to the hipbelt, padded shoulder straps and a thermoformed back panel for improved comfort and and ventilation.
