Top 5 New Innovative Bike Gadgets


Posted by Cags R under Cycling on 21 March 2014 at 12:00 AM

We love a good gadget here at Tribesports, and with the recent release of the Performance Cycling Jersey, we thought we'd show off 5 new innovative cycling gadgets which are in development now.

Most of these brands are also successful crowd funded projects, showing that the cycling community around the world is keen to invest in new and innovative gadgets.

Trigger Bell

This project has just reached its Kickstarter funding goal with 21 days to go - and it's a really great idea. Traditional bike bells are legally required to be sold with new bikes - however, the design of the bike bell has never really come into question as to its effectiveness - that's where Trigger Bell comes into play:

"It's such a change, and such an improvement from the traditional bicycle bell, that once people see it working, and get to play with it... suddenly the penny drops! There's a Eureka moment of Why haven't bicycle bells always beens designed like this?!"

The Kickstarter project has successfully hit its initial target, but as we all know, Kickstarters don't just stop at target! Backing just £8 will earn you your very own Trigger Bell. Here's the video for full details:

BLAZE laser light

Blaze Bike Light

We've featured London-based BLAZE in the past, but figured they were worth another mention! This innovative bike light is a premium product for cycle safety in the city. The laser projection feature, combined with high-spec LED light can run for 13 hours (USB rechargable) and is designed to project a cyclist's presense on the road. Ideal for city riding where you may find yourself in a sticky situation with driver's blind spots.

At £125/$200, it's not the cheapest light on the market, but it's packed full of features that give it a lot of bang for you buck!

Pub Pedals

We met Pub Pedals inventor, Jeff Thom, at the ISPO Awards in January (where Tribesports Performance Range was a finalist for the Brand New category), his design allows you to convert your MTB eggbeater pedals into regular pedals. So when you're done on the trails for the day, you don't need a whole new bike in order to get around town wearing regular shoes.

Costing $27 for a pair, Pub Pedals open up leisure riding for mountain bikes!

Overade Helmet

The folding bike is now as regular sight on city streets, but so is the helmet-less folding bike rider! Introducing the Overade Helmet: a folding helmet which is designed for the urban cyclist to neatly fold away into their bag and use when they need it. 

At a price of around £79.99 - we imagine this will rapidly become the automatic add-on to most folding bike sales!

Ass Savers

Ass SaversAnother ISPO find, these Swedish guys know a thing or two about pedaling in the rain! That's why they invented the storable mudguard,store it under your saddle and pull it out when you need it. Ideal for those of us who live in soggy weather but appreciate the aesthetic of a bike (yeah, that's a nice way of saying mud-guard snobs).

Ass Savers are a very affordable €7.99 - but you can't really put a price on having a dry ass!
