Helios LED Handlebars

View all 7 Photos

Biking just got a lot smarter. The Helios LED handlebars connect the physical act of biking with digital technology, as the lights installed within the handlebars can be controlled in a variety of settings using an iPhone. The lights can take care of turn signals without a problem, but they impress with the ability to change colors for a quick speedometer metric and as a built-in GPS feature. Currently only available for the iPhone, hopefully an Android app is on the way so that all users can experience the luxury of riding on the forefront of biking innovation. But be wary when using your phone while on the move; you wouldn’t want to text and bike!
