Smart4u Smart Helmet with LED taillight & Turn Indicators. SOS Alert, Bluetooth Phone One Button Answer Bike Helmet, Certified Comfortable Cycling Helmet-SH55M
Safety is our first and foremost concern when riding, for my wife especially. So when I saw this smart cycling helmet I immediately thought it would make an excellent gift for her upcoming birthday. She’ll love the added taillight and blinkers. Though I’m not sure she’d ever use the phone or blue tooth capabilities while riding. I would, but I love the option. The LIVALL RIDING APP with emergency contact and built-in sensor chip provide a level of additional safety we hadn’t even thought existed. Not that we’ll stop wearing our safety bracelets. Knowing that in case of an accident the emergency system will kick in automatically and send your GPS location to your emergency contacts is assuring.

Other cycling safety gear
My wife is a much more concerned? Cautious? No, it’s probably intelligent cyclist than I am. So naturally she’s more interested in what is going on behind her on the road than I am. Which is how I came across the GARMIN REARVIEW RADAR. The Garmin Varia provides visual as well as audible alerts for approaching vehicles. The Varia warns of vehicles up to 153 yards (140 meters) away. The smartphone app increases your awareness by providing graphics — plus tone and vibration alerts — indicating the position and speed of approaching cars. No more looking behind you or glancing at tiny, poorly located mirrors. When used with a compatible smartphone, Varia radar integrates with your favorite apps. Utilize Ride with GPS to overlay your maps with rearview radar alerts. Mounts easily on the seat post of almost any road-use bicycle.
So we went riding the other day with a good friend. Dan is a much more experienced rider than us and during the ride our conversation the topic of road ID came up. We were riding local. Right out of the drive way so I didn’t bother bringing a wallet. The wife didn’t have anything with her either. So Dan brought to our attention the repercussions in a worst case scenario. What if we got hit? How would anyone know who we were or who to contact? Needless to say, when we got home the first thing we did was research a ROAD ID BRACELET.
