FEND is a Collapsible Bike Helmet that folds to a third of its size

by Caitlyn

If you ride a bike and care at all about your safety, you should be wearing a helmet. Otherwise you’re just asking for instant death as there’s really nothing to save you from a collision. Not protecting your elbows, knees and any other uncovered areas are up to your discretion, but bashing your head on the hard ground will not heal up as easily. It’s obnoxious to have to carry a bicycle helmet around all day, but your safety should come before looking cool, right?

These Rumble Shoe Lights make sure you aren’t invisible at night

When you go out for a breath of fresh air at night, it’s terrifying to be anywhere near a main road. Cars will come dashing around corners if they think there’s not a cop in the area, and may end up with murder on their record. We’re so used to everyone being in a car that it’s almost strange to see people out at night, even though it’s completely sane to go on a nighttime run, walk, or just take an impromptu stroll because you feel like it.

Sena introduces smart cycling helmet

by Edwin

senaYou have only one head, and under that hair and skin on the outside lies a skull. The skull is what keeps your brain protected from all sorts of knocks and hits, but since it is not made out of some indestructible material, you know that some blunt force could actually shatter the skull — and mush up everything inside. This means one should always be extra careful when it comes to protecting one’s head, even more so when you are traveling on a bicycle or motorbike. A helmet is mandatory for road users who get about on two wheels, and helmets have also evolved to keep up with the times. Sena intends to be part of the smart helmet revolution with their new smart cycling helmet.

While riding a bike is far better for the environment, other vehicles on the road have drivers who wish cyclists weren’t there. It’s dangerous to ride a bicycle as you need to be adequately seen and heard, and even then sometimes drivers are just out to see you hurt. There’s also the trouble of making sure that your bike doesn’t get stolen, you’re seen at night, and all sorts of other fun factors to worry about.

This Luxury Exercise Bike makes it obvious that you’re rich

It’s hard to imagine, but what if you had so much money that you literally bought everything you’ve ever wanted? Would you stop buying stuff, give a bunch of money away, or keep spending money on more and more frivolous things until you have an emotional breakdown about your own personal worth? Hopefully you’re living decently enough to not be leaning too far one direction or another, but if you are starting to buy frivolous stuff, then you are part of a target market!

Bike Balls are good for a laugh

by Edwin

bike-ballsSo, you happen to love getting around your city on a couple of wheels without having to burn some fossil fuel along the way while burning some calories on the side, which would mean that you love cycling. However, cycling when there is very little light is not exactly the best thing to do, and neither is it the safest, which is why you would have “balls” to do so – and why not equip your two-wheeler with a pair as well in order to provide some illumination? While it might sound crazy and impossible, the £19.99 Bike Balls are certainly worth looking into while providing others around you with a laugh.

The Bike Balls will be able to boost your visibility while adding a dose of humor to the daily commute, where the swaying silicone ball sack will emit a bright red glow. It will hook up without any effort to your bicycle seat rail, where turning them on or off as well as changing light modes is achieved with but a gentle squeeze. Not only that, it has been built to last with water/splash resistant construction. They are powered by a pair of CR2032 replaceable batteries which should last for 100 hours thereabouts in solid light mode or around 190 hours in flashing mode.
