Let There Be Light, A Lot Of LIGHT! Trail LED

Well biking in the daytime is of course the best way to ride the trails, unless you have a TrailLED. Let's just say that daytime is now anytime you switch this head mounted light system on. The downfall is the price $1200, ouch, the cost of the sun ain't cheep.

The Halo is quite simply the most revolutionary bike light on the market in both design and output.  The Halo houses ten of the highest performing CREE LEDs available and emits a wicked 6000 lumens.   (In fact, it is so bright that you should probably have to sign a waiver .)  We deliver those 6000 lumens in a solid, anodized aluminum light-body weighing less than 200 grams.  We have maintained tight control over both output and color temperature to give you maximum output with the best color rendition available in the industry.

The unique, low-profile, arched design and multiple lenses of the Halo produce what we like to call MPSD (multi-point shadow definition), rendering unparalleled depth perception.   The unique integrated mounting system also allows unmatched flexibility and convenience in mounting.  And if all of that isn't enough, our battery packs boast a 1:1 charge ratio, meaning you only need two battery packs to run continuously.

With all Trail Led lights, no compromises have been made in materials, design or construction.  Trail Led lights are all handmade in the USA, by bikers for bikers.

Iron On Micro Fiber Lens Cleaner, AMAZING!

Well the Holidays will rush in great products, PhotoJoJo micro fiber lens cleaner will not disappoint. Carrying around cloths to wipe your glasses, phone, iPad is a bit annoying, now all you need to do is iron one into your bag, shirt, pants, etc..

The Micro Fiber Lens Cleanse Patches are totally here for you in your time of need. These fun patterned patches easily iron on to your duds, so you can rock that cleaning power at all times.

The extra soft micro fiber material is way better for your lenses than whatever scratchy (albeit stunning) shirt you have on.

Iron one to your favorite sweatband, and clean your lens before that gym mirror selfie. Use the patch to wipe the smudges off your phone screen obsessively every five minutes, finally!

Best Gift Guide Around, GP100!

Excellence, innovation, craftsmanship, and an unwavering desire to challenge expectations.

Trending is our new religion. Not that anyone should act surprised. The desire for understanding amidst an unprecedented explosion of new information is natural. It’s what separates us from everything else with a metabolism. For a species supposedly#doomed to forget the lessons of history, there’s also a comfort in systematically mining the past and present for a hazy peek at the future. It’s proof to ourselves that we’re finally paying attention.
Some of it has tangible value for sure, but just how much of our faith should we place in the hands of the hive mind? It’s a question we circled often while honing the second annual edition of the GPI00 — our own salute to products that embody “excellence, innovation, craftsmanship, and an unwavering desire to challenge expectations.”
Reinforcing the “smart” and “crowd-funded” narratives saturating the headlines today would have been easy. If you browse through this year’s winners, though, we hope you’ll walk away with a different point of view on the world of gear in 2014. Some of our picks stubbornly eschew progress out of homage for the past. Others brashly dismiss what’s established or venerated in pursuit of something bigger. What unites them both is an understanding that all great ideas deserve to be pursued to their full potential, regardless of whether they align with the whims of the many. It’s the difference between creating movements and following them.

Oh this is going to change it all, once again!
There’s a beauty to the simplicity of running, because everything you need is already inside you. For the first time ever, you can now see what your body’s trying to tell you and use it to run smarter, for longer.

BSXinsight uses revolutionary technology that allows you to look inside your muscle, measuring your lactate threshold and generating personalized training zones. Stop trying to “feel” whether you’re pushing too hard or leaving too much on the trail and let the science of your body speak to you.


It’s all about knowing your limits - when to push those limits and when to pull back, so that ultimately you can break them. Lactate threshold training is the science of measuring your limits over time, then continually adjusting intensities so that you’re always training at the optimal level. Which moves your body’s threshold higher and higher over time, until you surpass previous limits - and break personal records.

This training method has been used by elite athletes, Olympians and professional coaches for more than forty years. For the first time ever, it’s now achievable through a simple, wearable device.

Using LED lights to “look” into your muscle, BSXinsight analyzes your unique biosignals to identify both your lactate threshold and personalized training zones. It’s as accurate as previous blood-based measurements, and it uses the same technology that experts and clinics use – with the added benefits of being wearable, ANT+ compatible and immediately actionable. Finally, you’ll always know how your body is responding to training, from the inside out.

Crazy Look, Protective Helmet, Smart Hat!

Smart Hat is a concept design to greatly increase rider safety, while also addressing some of the more inflammatory issues between cyclists, pedestrians and road users.

Smart Hat is currently a virtual product system with IP protection.

We have the skills to fully develop smart hat and we are looking for interested parties to assist us in modest funding, co-developing & branding this exciting new product together.


The safety of bicycle riders on roads is an issue for concern.
Existing approaches to minimise the risk of injury to road users range from the physical separation of the cyclist (cycling paths) through to the wearing of safety devices, such as helmets.

However, a number of technical limitations have restricted the ability of such dedicated spatial regions and wearable systems to minimise the risk and prevention of injury.


The wearing of cycle helmet for a cyclist is compulsory across all states in Australia.  Although helmets have gained usage with a number of cyclists, not all wear them.

Existing helmets afford little protection to the cyclist in a collision and are not designed to the same standard as other motor vehicle helmets.

Existing cycle helmets do not address any technical issues of integrating modern, electronic safety devices, data, or even standard road use indicators that are compulsory on all road registered vehicles, namely: illuminated front and rear turn indicators, brake lights, rear running lights, head light of appropriate brightness to other road users or rear view mirrors.


This concept is concerned with the problem of injuries to humans and animals resulting from accidents. In particular, human injury which results from an unplanned interaction with a machine, such as a bicycle rider colliding with an automobile, pedestrian adult, pedestrian child or companion animal.

Apart from safety considerations, an ID system would allow cyclists to share responsibility when interacting with vehicles and pedestrians.

CrankPump, Simply Brilliant!

Like the wheel, sliced bread, suspension bikes, CrankPumps make you say, Duh, this will be added to every cyclist bag of tricks.

Most new bicycles have a hollow axle between the pedal cranks. That hollow space is the perfect size for a bike pump. CrankPump is a CO2 pump for Shimano Hollowtech cranks. Simply unscrew the existing plastic bolt, screw in CrankPump, and forget about it until you need it.
Bike pumps are annoying. They live on a bracket that hangs off your bike getting ugly, dirty and lost, or they live in your back pocket beating up your kidneys. Sometimes they live forgotten in your drawer at home or on the road where they fell off. The pump and other stuff needed to repair a tyre hangs off your bike, making it look ugly and un-aerodynamic. CrankPump is a simple way to keep all that stuff from ruining the clean lines of your bike.
Shimano Hollowtech cranks have a plastic bolt that covers a hollow axle. CrankPump is a CO2 pump that is a simple screw-in replacement for that plastic bolt. CrankPump lives in the axle, hidden out of the way until you need it. SIMPLE AND PREFECT.. 

Go and support.

Hauling Gear With Your Bike just Got Easier!

The Brouhaha Bike Trailer from Wisconsin-based Rollout Self-Propelled Trailers puts a bit of horsepower behind your two-wheeler. Unlike on some other electric-powered bike trailers, that horsepower doesn't make pedaling any easier; it simply adjusts for the weight of the load so that the cyclist can pedal like normal while carrying everything from a full tailgating set-up to a stand-up paddleboard.

iPhone Bumper Thong!

The RADIUS v2 is not a bumper case, nor it is a snap case, it is not your conventional iPhone 5/5s case. The profile of the case is so slim, it barely extends beyond the sleep and the volume buttons on the sides of the iPhone 5/5s. It’s very light, thin and, unlike many aluminum bumpers and cases, during our testing, we didn’t experience any signal loss. We gave a few prototypes to our teammates to use and we have a hard time gathering those back for the video shoot because they love it so much, they call it their iPhone bikini.

If this works, it will be in everyone's bag. What is not to love about this device, even if you have tubular.

The video shows something amazing and yes, I would think you would want to change your tube somewhere down the line, just not while you are on the road, woods, park, city, does it even matter.

Beach Vault!

For those who are protective when they go to the beach, the Beach Vault is a pretty neat idea.
This will make you feel like Jack Sparrow, looking for Rum on the deserted Island. Tossing the e-reader and iPod in your bag can be a great way to enjoy a day at the beach, but when you add it to your wallet, keys and cell phone that's a lot of valuables to leave unattended when you head out for a swim. The solution, according to the designers of Beach Vault, is to bury them.

Zero Cubed Mask, Perfect!

Revolutionary free diving mask with an exclusive look created in cooperation with renown automotive high performance powerhouse MOMO of Italy. The main feature of this mask is the field of vision which is almost completely non-impaired. The field of vision is 30% higher, compared to a classic free diving mask such as the Alien. The internal volume is so low that if a mask like the Alien is normally equalized starting at 25-30' depth, the ZERO3 doesn't require clearing before a depth of 60'. This makes for much more comfortable spearfishing particularly ad depth. Every detail on this mask has been conceived keeping in mind its design and functionality. The mask skirt features some milled surfaces that prevent the refraction of sunlight and make clearing easier, gloves don’t slip when you hold the nose. The finish of the skirt which has a carbon fiber appearance was designed specifically to avoid glare.

Tsunami Survival Capsule

The capsules are designed to sit, stocked with provisions, in a backyard, garage or on a flat roof. After a tsunami alert is issued, residents in at-risk areas enter the Survival Capsule, buckle themselves into the seats’ four point harnesses and wait. The pod floats atop the tsunami waves (Sharpe compares the effect to trying to hold a beach ball underwater) and has an optional bottom tether to keep the pod from being swept miles away. The weight of the pod’s water storage tanks keeps the occupants upright and allows ventilation via air vents in the roof, and emergency air tanks provide 60 minutes of oxygen should the capsule become temporarily submerged.

Why a tsunami survival capsule?

Well, we have all seen the tsunami signs at the beach, but what do they really mean? Depending on the location, it means a fast moving wave potentially 100 feet high could be at the beach in less than 15 minutes. Great, so what are your current options? In some locations vertical evacuation structures are available, in other locations you have to evacuate inland and uphill. Keep in mind, the earthquake that created the tsunami potentially destroyed your evacuation road.
A tsunami Survival Capsule provides an alternative to horizontal and vertical evacuation for areas that have limited evacuation warning time and for individuals that are incapable of evacuating themselves. 

Who are these guys?

We are aerospace engineers that specialize in making airplanes as light as possible without breaking. If you have ever taken a commercial flight, you have seen our work.
How does that help you in a tsunami?
We teamed up with a world renowned tsunami expert, Dr. Eddie Bernard, who helped us understand what kind of conditions to expect during a tsunami. The results were staggering; tsunamis pack a punch. However, using the same abilities we use to check aircraft structure we designed a Survival Capsule capable of withstanding the punishment. In fact, our two person capsule is so strong you could stack 10 cars on top of it! 

The Impact

There are 130 countries around the world affected by these disasters and 7 million exposed in the USA. Currently Japan is forecasting a loss of approximately 300,000 lives if the Nankai Trough creates an 8-9 magnitude, which has a 70% chance of occurring in the next 30 years.
We hope to reduce the future loss of life with our capsules and by educational outreach.

StemLock, Wonderful Low Tech Solution to Bike Theft.

A lot can be said about Kryptonite locks but simple solutions sometimes are the best answer. I am not saying that a  lock does not help but this solution is great, hidden and well prefect.

Stemlock integrates two new functions into the bicycle. On one hand, it simplifies storage and transport. On the other hand, it is a powerful protection against theft. Stemlock is the first lock integrated into a multifunctional stem. Using a simple pressure and a quarter turn to the left or to the right, the handlebar is quickly aligned along with the frame and the wheels. With one turn of a key, the handlebar is disassociated from the fork, making the bike absolutely impossible to be ridden or conducted.

FiveFingers Shoes, YUP, They Will Pay Millions To Those Who Bought Their Shoes!

Well it didn't take as long as I thought, but only after a few short years, Vibram is going to pay millions to those who bought their shoes and thought it would changed their life. Well it did, it messed them up.

I have to say, Newton Running, gives you a tutorial on running in their shoes, how to build up on millage, get used to your shoe. Vibram did no such thing.

Vibram USA, the company that makes FiveFingers running shoes, has agreed to settle a lawsuit that alleged the company made false and unsubstantiated claims about the health benefits of its glove-like footwear. According to the court filings, Vibram settled to put the matter to rest and avoid any additional legal expenses. “Vibram expressly denied and continues to deny any wrongdoing alleged in the Actions, and neither admits nor concedes any actual or potential fault, wrongdoing or liability,” read the court brief.
The settlement consists of two kinds of relief. The first is refunds to class members who submit valid and completed claim forms. Vibram will deposit $3.75 million into an escrow account and those funds will be distributed to those valid class members who purchased a pair of Vibram FiveFingers between March 21, 2009 and the date of the first dissemination of summary settlement notice or class notice, whichever is earlier. FiveFingers will award up to a maximum of $94 per pair, though the agreement acknowledges that based on similar settlements it is reasonable for class members to expect to receive between $20 and $50 per pair.

Hearable and the Bragi, The Dash

The Dash has a touch sensitive surface that lets you control either what your smartphone or what the embedded music player does. You can control The Dash with sliding motions and taps. It is easy to do, even while running or biking.
While active noise cancellation is only good at reducing continuous reoccurring sound, noise isolation reduces all sounds. Active noise cancellation is good at reducing noise from the air-con and airplanes. Noise Isolation reduces noise from screaming kids, dogs barking, wife/husband yelling, airplanes, speeding cars, drunken sailors, neighbors playing basketball. Just about everything. Best thing is, that great noise isolation has increased battery time versus active noise cancellation.
