THE BEST Bicycles

BMX Triple Front-Flip

BMX Triple Front-Flip

It wasn’t that long ago that we saw BMX rider Ryan Williams pull off an awe-inspiring single front-flip on his bike, and now he’s bested that by 3x, with an epic triple version of the same stunt – though not without some worthy competition and numerous spills along the way.

Pedal Lock

Pedal Lock

Not to be confused with the similarly named concept, the Pedal Lock is a bicycle pedal that has a built-in retractable stainless steel cable with a three-digit lock. It also has a motion-activated 120dB alarm. The final version will be water- and dirt-resistant.

Biking the Corkscrew

Biking the Corkscrew

The Corkscrew at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is one of the most famous bits of road on any circuit in the world. It’s both a challenge and a blast in a race car, but five-year-old Juliette shows us it can be just as fun while riding on a bicycle.

Faraday Porteur S

Faraday Porteur S

A slightly more affordable version of the crowdfunded electric bicycle. The Porteur S has a 5-speed internally geared hub, a chain drive and steel fenders as opposed to the Porteur’s 8-speed drivetrain, belt drive and bamboo fenders.

Helix Folding Bicycle

Helix Folding Bicycle

Unlike most folding bikes, Helix doesn’t fold in the middle of its frame. Instead, it uses a unique hinge mechanism where the front and rear wheels fold inwards. The result is a more compact and durable bike, but that opens up to a normal size.

Slackline Biking

Slackline Biking

Trials rider Kenny Belaey demonstrates his incredible balance as he makes his way to the top of a rock, and then proceeds to ride his bike across a slackline over a 367 foot drop, all the while facing the challenges of the ~8900 foot altitude. Thank god for safety gear.

The Sbyke

The Sbyke

This unusual looking conveyance combines elements of bicycling, skating and scootering in one. Rear-wheel steering enables a tight 2-foot turning radius, and it brakes like a bike. Plus, it’s versatile enough to use for transportation or tricks. Available in three sizes.

A Really Long Wheelie

A Really Long Wheelie

The 207mph Bike

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a rocket-powered bicycle, but it is the first time we’ve seen one go faster than a supercar, hitting 207mph in just 5 secs. We’re just amazed that daredevil rider Francois Gissy managed to hold on to it.

Evo Utility Bicycle

Evo Utility Bicycle

The Evo bicycle lost to the Denny in the 2014 Bike Design Project, but it’s a great concept as well. It has mounts at the front and rear for a variety of cargo accessories. It also has a built-in lock, headlight and brake light.
