    Skylock Solar Powered Key Less Bike Lock Alerts You In Case It Is being Moved

    We’re almost certain future bike locks are going to resemble the Skylock, which updates the traditional U-lock with a whole load of smart and connected technologies. Sure, maybe they won’t look the same, but the feature set is exactly what suits these modern connected times. Unlike traditional bike locks, it’s impossible to pick. No, they didn’t put a genius locking system into it — it just doesn’t open with a traditional key, so there’s no way to access the lock [...]

  • Daymak Beast: This Adorable-Looking Solar Battery Electric Bike Is A Serious Off-Road Machine

    Daymak Beast: This Adorable-Looking Solar Battery Electric Bike Is A Serious Off-Road Machine

    While it looks more like a burly children’s scooter than a serious off-road toy, the latter is certainly what the Daymak Beast aspires to be. Combining elements from bicycles, motorcycles, and scooters with the off-road talents of an ATV, it’s one unique ride that combines tough performance with an unassuming appearance. Made by the same guys behind the Shadow Ebike, the electric two-wheeler brings a chunky, low-profile aesthetic that’s equal parts rugged and cute. Like a dirty Ryan Gosling. Suffice to [...]

  • Stemlock Can Make A Bicycle Impossible To Steer

    Stemlock Can Make A Bicycle Impossible To Steer

    The Stemlock is a permanent bike add-on that renders the handlebar useless until unlocked. That means, whoever is riding can’t steer the bike properly, potentially resulting in a few minutes of entertaining bike accident videos. Get your cameras ready. Despite the potential for pranks (and the occassional injury), the Stemlock is actually intended as an extra layer of security for bikes. While a thief can obviously still pick it up and run with your bike after he manages to get [...]

    Vanhawks Valour Smart Bicycle Tracks Your Rides And Gives Interactive Feedback

    With more and more people using bike computers, fitness monitors, and smartphone apps to add tracking and GPS functions to their bicycle rides, it only makes sense to start producing bicycles with sensors, radio chips, and all sorts of connected hardware. That’s exactly what we get with the Vanhawks Valour. No need to buy any extra hardware or software to get a variety of software services on your bike. Paired with a downloadable smartphone app, you can use it to record ride [...]

  • Verrado Brings Motorized Drift Triking To Flat Grounds

    Verrado Brings Motorized Drift Triking To Flat Grounds

    Drift triking, which has become a recognized sport (at least in New Zealand, where it originated), has been growing in popularity over the years, finding enthusiasts taking their slippery rear wheels to the hillsides and counter-steering the loss of traction when negotiating corners.  (Infact, we have been building our electric drift trike in the garage and would be posting a complete write up soon) Problem is, unless you live around sloping roads and hillsides, it’s a pretty inaccessible sport.  That’s [...]

  • Helicat Catamaran Can Fly Through Rough Seas At 45 MPH

    Helicat Catamaran Can Fly Through Rough Seas At 45 MPH

    The Helicat looks like a helicopter that landed in the middle of the ocean, then somehow managed to keep moving even while floating on water. It looks awesome. Rather than a boat and chopper hybrid, though, it’s actually just a seafaring catamaran that, for some reason, was fashioned to look like it came straight out of a 60s-era James Bond movie. While it won’t be taking off to send riders soaring through the skies, the boat will let you ride through harsh [...]

  • Axe Kevlar Shirt Adds A Layer Of Safety During Your Motorcycle Excursions In Summer

    Axe Kevlar Shirt Adds A Layer Of Safety During Your Motorcycle Excursions In Summer

    Warm weather is a great time to take out the motorcycle. Unless you enjoy the feeling of being in a sauna the whole day, however, it is a horrible time to ride around town while wearing your Dark Knight Motorcycle Suit. How do you keep yourself adequately protected while zipping through traffic on a two-wheeled crotch rocket? Maybe the Ace Kevlar Shirt can help. Made by Crave, it’s styled to look like a normal work shirt — the kind you wear [...]

  • Me-Mover Trike Can Carve Corners, Climb Inclines And Fold Into The Size Of A Rolling Briefcase

    Me-Mover Trike Can Carve Corners, Climb Inclines And Fold Into The Size Of A Rolling Briefcase

    We’ve seen plenty of quirky tricycle designs around these parts, from recumbent drifters to standing mini-trikes, all aimed as an alternative personal transport machine. Out of all these, though, I feel like the Me-Mover has the most potential to offer a real alternative to traditional bicycles for urban transport. Described as a “personal active transporter” that’s designed for city use, the ride looks like a kick scooter with two separate footpads and three wheels. It doesn’t use conventional pedals like many trikes we’ve [...]

  • Olympic Ceremony Monowheel: Forget The Bicycle, Get Me One Of These

    Olympic Ceremony Monowheel: Forget The Bicycle, Get Me One Of These

    You can deck your bicycle in bright lights and reflectors if you want motorists to notice you at night. But that still runs a small risk of someone flat out missing you — you’re still on a tiny pedal-powered vehicle that’s no wider than your own frame, after all. If you want to grab everyone’s attention any time you’re on the road, you’ll want to ride something that can grab attention better than a fixie and this Olympic Ceremony Monowheel will do [...]

  • Raven MPV7100S Combines Lawn Mower, ATV, And Generator In One Machine

    Raven MPV7100S Combines Lawn Mower, ATV, And Generator In One Machine

    Ride-on mowers and ATVs share enough in common that combining them into a single machine does make some amount of sense.  Just install a blade system that you can attach and detach at will, and you’ve got yourself a ride that can clear large fields one moment and drive around farm roads the next.  That’s exactly what they did with the Raven MPV7100S, a triple-duty workhorse that plays the role of mower, utility vehicle, and even generator. Not only will [...]

  • Halfbike Is A Mini-Trike You Ride While Standing

    Halfbike Is A Mini-Trike You Ride While Standing

    Imagine a Segway (okay, an electric Vespa Segway).  Take away the electric drivetrain, replace it with a bicycle’s gear mechanism, and make the riders stand on the integrated pedals rather than a designated footpad.  That’s exactly what they did with the Halfbike. We’re not exactly sure how to describe it.  Is it a trike with neither a seatpost nor a handlebar?  is it a manual Segway?  Is it a toddler’s bike that’s been rigged to ride full grown adults upright?  [...]

    Rungu Juggernaut Fat Tire Trike Is Awesome And Beast Mode Rolled Into Same Package

    The Rungu Juggernaut, an upright tadpole trike that runs on all-fat tires, is specifically built for transporting watersport equipment across the sand.  With a design that puts the two front wheels side by side in shoulder-width spacing, it’s able to spread the load out more efficiently, maximizing stability while you haul a heavy surfboard, tow a kayak, or carry a fleet of coolers filled with beer across the beach. Aside from the two front wheels’ admirable utilitarian function, they also make [...]

  • Oh Look! An Almost Spill Free Cupholder For Your Bike

    Oh Look! An Almost Spill Free Cupholder For Your Bike

    We’ve seen a cupholder for bicycles before, but so far, I haven’t really found one that I can buy.  Hey, people who commute to work on bikes need to carry their morning coffee, too.  Maybe Bookman’s Cup Holder will finally be the one to bring bicycle riders that convenience. Designed to mount right on the bike, you simply attach it onto the handlebars using the integrated spring clamp with the cup area hanging out.  Again, make sure it’s hanging out, [...]

  • Futuristic Honda NM4 Motorcycle Features A Unique, Comfy-Looking Riding Position

    Futuristic Honda NM4 Motorcycle Features A Unique, Comfy-Looking Riding Position

    Sporting what Honda describes as a “neo-futuristic” design, the Honda NM4 is definitely one eye-catching motorcycle.   Not only does it bear styling that looks perfectly at home being ridden by a half-robot police officer from 2050, though, it could very well offer a more comfortable ride, too. With a seating position that Honda calls “cockpit-style,” it steers clear of the saddle-like seats you’ll find in everything from Ducatis to electric motorcycles, opting for a comfortable-looking wide seat.  That means, more [...]

    This Banana Holder Mounts A Fruit To Your Bike’s Handlebars

    You like  keeping a banana around to snack on as you make your way through the day.  Sure, you can slip it in a bag to reach for later when hunger hits, but why not strap it somewhere for easy access with this Banana Holder? That’s right, someone made a mounting strap that’s custom-designed to hold a banana.  No more getting your bananas squished in a backpack or wrapping them up in a brown bag — your yellow, pulpy fruit [...]

    2015 Jeep Renegade: A Smaller Wrangler Built For The Big City

    Jeep has just lifted the veils off their smallest model ever and it’s a beauty.  Called the 2015 Jeep Renegade, it’s the automaker’s first foray into the growing midsize crossover market, combining on-road driving dynamics with the iconic badge’s best-in-class off-road expertise. Looking like a baby version of the Jeep Wrangler, it brings the familiar seven-slat grille, circular headlights, and upright stance that’s been the outfit’s trademark identifier, fully embracing the brand’s familiar styling while looking every bit suited to [...]

    Meet America’s First Electric School Bus That Is Now In Service In California

    Electric vehicles have been growing steadily over the past couple of years.  So far, though, no school district in America has embraced them as their ride of choice for transporting students to and from school.  That changes now, as the King’s Canyon Unified School District (KCUSD) in California’s San Joaquin Valley has begun using a Trans Tech SST-e as the country’s first all-electric school bus. An electric version of Trans Tech’s popular SST model, the vehicle can ferry up to [...]

    Koenigsegg One:1 Brings A Full Megawatt Of Power

    People come up with world records for all sorts of statistics all the time.  For automobiles, it’s the same thing.  Despite that, there are a few records that make a tremendous difference and being the fastest production car in the world is one of them.  The Koenigsegg One:1 is laying claim to that throne. Billed as the “world’s first megacar,” it’s the only production vehicle to ever come out of the gate packing one megawatt of power.   For real.  Obviously, [...]

    Using your iPhone in the car for a wide variety of functions is nothing new.  But an integrated experience that makes the phone feel like a part of your vehicle’s native infotainment system?  That’s exactly what Apple is introducing with the new Carplay. Designed “from the ground up to provide drivers with an incredible experience using their iPhone in the car,” the system lets you use the iOS interface directly from the vehicle’s infotainment display.  No more squinting at that [...]
