SmartHalo is a biking device designed for urban cyclists. Its military-grade locking system means it stays permanently on your handlebar and assists you when you need it. The intuitive navigation system shows you the quickest, safest routes to your destination. Automatic tracking capabilities save your biking metrics seamlessly. The powerful front light illuminates your path at night, and when you’re not around, SmartHalo keeps your bike safe from thieves. It can be found here [link].

Beeline

Imagine a compass that knows where you want to go and points there instead of north. This is the core of BeeLine, a handlebar-mounted device that helps you find your way on a bike. In the city, being told which turns to take is a hindrance, not a help, so BeeLine simply points you in the general direction of your destination and tells you the distance to go – no instructions. Check it out here [link].

Haiku

An urban bike computer with navigation from your smartphone and control through hand gestures. Haiku uses your smartphone’s GPS capability to provide you with directions. The idea is that you input your destination into the phone before you start riding, then tuck it away somewhere safe. The phone communicates turn-by-turn directions to the Haiku, which displays them in a very clear format. Check it out [link].

Wraapit

Wraapit was a response to the lack of functionality in existing solutions, and is aimed at city bikers and enthusiasts of winter madness, especially those who want to be sure that while riding a bicycle they can safely control music, and when skiing, do not have to take off their gloves and unbutton their jackets to read an SMS or see who is calling. All this is thanks to the design of a snap wrap band. Wraapit is a waterproof device, and its assembly takes about a second. Just like in a modern car, in which there is a phone, music, navigational aids, and speed and driving parameter monitoring, you can have everything on your bike or slope in sight without wasting your time stopping. You need to see it to believe it [link].

It is the technology bikers deserve.

At last, cyclists have it all: a versatile companion on sports trips, preventing them from being distracted during their activity with a touch of unique style. Now it’s up to you to choose which will be your best support in sporting moments. Do you know of any other interesting gadgets? Share them in the comments!
