If you are a cycling fanatic like us, then you must have a couple of cool gadgets and accessories mounted on your bike. In the past, those were self-made accessories that pimped-out our ride, but today we have some high-tech stuff on the market.
If you haven’t followed bike gadgets closely in the last couple of years, then you might have missed some ground-breaking innovations that have already hit the stores all around the world. Luckily, you have us and that is exactly why we are here. In this article, we will show you the most creative and game-changing bike gadgets that you should keep your eye on.
Wireless bicycle turn signal
Gone are the days of signaling with your hand when you are about to turn. With this little gadget that goes right beneath your seat, you will be able to signal other participants in traffic by simply pushing a button on your handlebars.
The whole thing is connected through a wireless connection, so there won’t be any awkward wiring going from your seat to your handlebars. Additionally, the device shines a bright LED light and it beeps loudly so that you are both heard and seen when turning.
ICEdot crash sensor
If you have ever been in a bike accident, then you know how important is to get help as soon as possible. You attach this gadget to your helmet and if you get into an accident it will inform your contacts about it. Your GPS coordinates will be sent to them so they can respond immediately.
To avoid spamming every time you fall off your bike, you will have a short time frame to confirm that you are okay and the alert won’t be sent. This ensures that notifications are only sent when you are badly injured or unconscious.
These handlebars are one of the best designs we’ve found on the market. But they are not just any ordinary bars, they are much more. Helios bars come with built-in GPS tracker and both front-facing and rear-facing LED lights. You can use them to increase your visibility and signal your turns. These bars change color based on your speed and they come in all shapes and sizes, so there is a model for everyone.
This one is not a gadget, but rather a different type of bicycle. Electric-powered bikes are nothing new on the market, but in the last couple of years, they have improved so much. Their batteries run much longer, they achieve greater speeds, and they are a lot more cost-effective.
Today you can get a reliable electric bicycle from almost any manufacturer, including Shimano, AXA, Tubus, and much more. Also, there are shops that specialize in electric bikes. They offer a wide selection of models like peugeot, gepida or latest bosch e bike as well as repair and maintenance services for them.
Lastly, we have a wireless Bluetooth speaker in a shape of water bottle. It is placed in the bottle holder cage, as you might have guessed, and you can use it to play music or as a speakerphone. It has a 10-hour battery life, so it will survive even your longest rides. Plus, it is splash proof, so you won’t have to worry about water damage.
And that brings us to the end. There are a lot more cool gadgets out there, but for us, these are the most useful ones. Remember that the technology is constantly advancing which means that we will be seeing only more and more creative and innovative ideas for gadgets.
