The Rubbee 2.0 has a longer range and is 'smarter' than the original model

While there are plenty of add-on electric bicycle motors out there, the Rubbee takes a particularly interesting approach. The product of a successful Kickstarter campaign, it incorporates a powered polyurethane roller that rubs against the bike's rear tire (hence the name), helping to augment the rider's pedaling power by driving the wheel forward. The second version of the device is now available and it's reportedly easier to use, plus it'll take you farther.  Read More

The BSXinsight measures lactate levels in the user's calf muscle

Whether they're training or taking part in actual competitions, athletes have to maintain a delicate balance – they want to make sure that they're "giving it everything they've got," yet they don't want to push themselves to the point that they cramp up or drop from exhaustion. That's why the BSXinsight was created. Billed as being the world's first wearable lactate threshold sensor, it's made to let athletes know how close they're getting to the edge, so they can approach it but not go over.  Read More

The Van Gogh-Roosegaarde cycle path glows in the dark to shows cyclists the way

Cycling can be a precarious activity, especially in the dark. A new cycle path designed by Studio Roosegaarde, however, aims to make cycling in the dark a touch safer, whilst introducing an artistic element. The Van Gogh-Roosegaarde in Eindhoven glows in the dark to show cyclists the way.  Read More

The Velov's four panels can be put on or taken off, depending on how cold it is outside

Although fair-weather cyclists may consistently appreciate the ventilation openings in most bike helmets, riders who brave the cold aren't always so keen on them. One solution is to cover those holes using a shower cap-like helmet cover, but Italy's Limar offers an alternative. Its Velov helmet has air flow-blocking panels that can be installed or removed as needed.  Read More

The Breaker, with its bits and pouch

Last year we heard about the Nutter, a stainless steel device that combines a multi-bit cycling multitool with a tire lever. Since then, inventor Mark Windsor decided to take that design and make it even more useful. The result is the Breaker, which is essentially a Nutter with an added chain-break tool.  Read More

The LittleBig Bike, in its larger-frame-but-still-no-pedals configuration

It's one of those "givens" of raising a child – as they get older, you have to get them bigger and more advanced bicycles. That can get a bit costly, so Irish entrepreneur Simon Evans designed an alternative. His LittleBig Bike can be converted from a small balance bike to a larger one, and then to a pedal bike.  Read More

Orfos' Flare lights are made to be seen

When it comes to bike lights for commuting, there's one thing you have to remember ... they're needed more for being seen than for seeing the road. With that in mind, many head- and tail lights are designed not just to cast beams in front of and behind the bike, but to be seen from all directions. Seattle-based Orfos' Flare lights appear to do a particularly good job in that department, plus they feature a unique mounting system.  Read More

The Rogue C6 carbon fiber bicycle integrates GPS systems and is designed for commuters

Many cities around the world are experiencing a massive upswing in commuter cycling. But often the vehicles of choice for these motivated nine-to-fivers is either a mountain bike converted for the road, or a road bike converted for shorter trips. At least that's the way Washington-based engineer David Lupafya sees it, whose sleek Rogue C6 bicycle is aimed at walking the line between comfort and durability.  Read More

The Lunicycle features an elliptical wheel, offset cranks, and calf braces

Riding a unicycle is kind of like juggling or playing the bagpipes, in that it's infamously hard to master. While some people might say that that's the whole point in learning to do it, others just want to get riding that one-wheeled bicycle ASAP. If you're among the second group, then you might like Inventist's uniquely-designed Lunicycle.  Read More

The ICE Full Fat is all set for your next 'big expedition'

Last December, British adventurer Maria Leijerstam became the first person to cycle from the edge of the Antarctic continent to the South Pole. She did so on a custom-built recumbent fat-tired tricycle, made by UK-based Inspired Cycle Engineering (ICE). Well, although there probably aren't many other people who want to do what Maria did, there no doubt are quite a few who'd like a trike like hers. That's why ICE is now offering the ready-for-anything Full Fat.  Read More
