THE BEST Bicycles
Riding a bike can be fun and great for your fitness. It can also be hard on your muscles and joints. The Kinect aims to reduce impact by adding a flexible suspension to your handlebars. It’s designed to isolate your wrists and upper body from shocks and vibrations, and comes in versions for different kinds of bikes and riding styles.
This modern bicycle helmet has a rear-mounted grid of 77 color LEDs which can be used to indicate when you’re braking or turning, as well as to display animations. The LEDs can be activated via handlebar controls or an Apple Watch app. In addition, there’s a row of bright white LEDs in front which improve forward visibility.
Trials bike guru and Red Bull athlete Danny MacAskill dropped by the local gym to get in a workout. But you won’t find him on the elliptical or doing squats. Nope, Danny gets in all of his reps behind the wheel of his skillfully-balanced bicycle. Be sure to stick around for the bloopers at the end.
Taking obvious inspiration from artist Theo Jansen’s Strandbeests and CARV’s earlier efforts, maker The Q fabricated himself a crazy bicycle which has no rear wheel, and instead can walk across the ground. This design appears much smoother than the one we previously saw, but by no means the fastest way to ride a bicycle.
Tempus relaunches its cafe racer-inspired electric bicycle as the Titan. It features a beautiful tank with your choice of color, a removable battery, up to 28mph top speed, up to 40mi range, dual crown suspension, and front and rear disc brakes. Available in 500W and 1000W motor models.
Take a ride along the skinniest line possible with mountain biker “Dangerous Dave” Herr. Watch as he negotiates wooden paths, some of which are roughly the width of his forks in this award-winning clip in the Pinkbike GoPro of the World Best Line contest. Watch from a different perspective here.
Kosynier makes electric bikes that look like vintage boardtrack motorcycles. Nearly everything about the bike is custom, including the frame, the “tank” that holds the batteries, and the front suspension. It goes up to 31 mph and can be equipped with a 5000W motor.
The Q built one of the most insane custom bicycles we’ve ever seen. He replaced the standard wheels of his wide-tire bike with special rims that wear six shoes each instead of tires. It doesn’t look like the smoothest ride ever, but the shoe rubber does provide decent traction.
Maker Laura Kampf teamed up with her friend Patrick, whose audio expertise helped her build an earthshaking sound system for the back of her 3-wheeler. The battery-powered audio system has six full-range speakers and a giant subwoofer. She should have named it “Boomtrike” though.
Freestyle street trials and pro mountain bike rider Fabio Wibmer takes a break from the chaos of urban life in Austria by tuning out the world and turning everyday obstacles into ramps, rails, and balancing points for a series of impressive stunts. Behind the scenes video here.
Diamondback Bicycles worked with Juicy Studios director Mike Hopkins and cinematographer Scott Secco to create this awesome ad spot to promote its new Mission Carbon bike. The clip takes us on a wild ride down the side of a mountain as the director himself, Micayla Gatto, and Reilly Horan put the badass bike to the test.
Juiced Bikes’ electric 2-wheeler packs a powerful 52-volt battery, which maxes out its speed, range, and performance capabilities. The bike can hit speeds up to 28 mph (or 33 mph with pedal assist), and has a range of up to 100 miles. Its pedal assist is said to be smoother than other E-bikes as well.
The SmartHalo 2 is a tiny multipurpose device for cyclists. It uses its minimal, yet intuitive interface to provide turn-by-turn directions, blare a loud anti-theft alarm, and measure cycling metrics such as distance and calories burned. It also has a powerful LED headlight.
The unique Halfbike is part scooter, part bicycle, and all fun. Its third version is lighter and smaller than its predecessors. Its also more ergonomic, has more gears to tackle all kinds of terrain, has new maintenance-free brakes and a new quick-release mechanism for folding.
Gocycle’s GX electric bicycle can be folded in just 10s, thanks to its frame design and side-mounted wheels. Its cables are also routed through the frame. It has a removable battery that lasts up to 40mi per charge. Its 500W motor lets it go up to 20mph. Drops 4/2019.
The Zarathustra is a pair of handlebar-mounted bicycle LED lights. They work as turn signals, brake lights, hazard lights and standard lights. They are waterproof and easily removable for charging. Their modes are toggled via a thumb button and managed via an app.
