While it’s important for cyclists to run a set of lights when they’re riding after dark, using lights in the daytime also helps make them more visible to drivers. That said, the chances are pretty high that daytime cyclists could forget and leave their lights on when they finish their ride ... plus, they’d go through batteries a lot quicker. Estonian inventor Indrek Rebane has already got those things covered, with his Velodroom “smart” tail light.  Read More

We’ve seen a bicycle mudguard that detaches from the bike and folds up when not in use, along with one that stays attached but rolls up when not needed. Created by Slovenian product designer Jurij Lozić, the Musguard offers features of both – it’s easy to put on and take off, and rolls up for stowage in a pack or pocket.  Read More

The Switch Aero System consists of quick-release aero bars and a dual-position seatpost

If you’re an Olympic-level triathlete, then chances are that you’re going to buy yourself a dedicated triathlon bike. Should you be someone who does the occasional triathlon more just for fun, however, then you might not want to shell out the thousands of dollars required for such a machine. That’s where the Switch Aero System comes in – it lets your existing road bike double as a triathlon bike.  Read More

The Q-FOG provides a cooling mist from your handlebars

The Magura eLECT module (lower right) replaces the existing adjustment cap on an existing ...

When it comes to setting the damping on a mountain bike’s suspension fork, a bit of a compromise is involved. Set it too hard, and the wheel will bounce off of every little bump in the trail – set it too soft, however, and the shock will bottom out on the big hits. It is possible to manually adjust the damping on the fly, but that’s not necessarily something that all riders want to bother doing. Magura is now offering a solution, in the form of its self-adjusting eLECT electronic suspension system.  Read More

Lumigrids aims to make cycling at night that little bit less perilous

Lumigrids is a simple, clever and above all useful concept that aims to improve the safety of cycling at night. The device is an LED projector that fits on the handlebars of your bicycle, projecting a square grid onto the ground before you. By looking at the changes and abnormalities in the grid, the cyclist is able to easily pick out potholes and other obstacles, helping them to avoid potential crashes and falls.  Read More

The Recon Jet includes GPS, wireless connectivity, multiple sensors, an HD camera and more

One major obstacle that's been holding the Recon Instruments heads-up display from really taking off is that it was designed for goggles. That's great for niche sports like skiing, snowboarding and skydiving, but it's useless for more common activities like running and cycling. The company is working to address that inherent shortcoming with the Jet, a pair of heads-up display sunglasses with a much more ambitious set of sporting and non-sporting uses.  Read More

Helios Bars feature integrated lighting, along with several other high-tech features

While there are plenty of important components and accessories that are mounted on a bike’s handlebars, the bars themselves are just empty hollow tubes that don’t really do anything ... right? Well, that isn’t the case with Helios Bars. Created by California-based inventor Kenny Gibbs (who previously brought us The Slug), they feature an integrated headlight, signal lights, tracking system, and several other clever features.  Read More

GoPro HERO actioncams are proving to be pretty popular with mountain bikers, although not everyone wants to wear one of the cameras on their helmet or chest. Riders can always mount it on their handlebars, although now Paul Components is offering an alternative – a GoPro mount that replaces the handlebar stem cap.  Read More
