The Lumos Smart Helmet previously cracked the issue of an illuminated and safe bike helmet. But in a commuter helmet, with safety as a driving factor, the lack of MIPS was a glaring omission. But not any more, let’s see what else has changed on the Lumos MIPS Helmet!

The Garmin Varia Radar is uniquely brilliant. The Garmin Varia Radar RLT510 has updated the design and LED, but is it enough to make existing users upgrade?
Garmin has such a range of products that sometimes the higher end units, like the Garmin Edge 1030 overshadow everything else – meaning terrific devices like the Garmin Edge 130 can be overlooked. If you want a new cycling GPS this summer, you need to check out this unit!
SeaSucker Talon Bike Carrier Review – A Bike Rack for Cars that Don’t do Bike Racks!! The SeaSucker Talon is the solution for people who love their bikes, but are unable to fit the bike inside, nor fit a normal bike rack on the car! I used to have a car which was 0.5cm to…
At the end of last year, the 200-pound fitness gorilla which is Garmin decided to get into the running power game. In typical Garmin style, they haven’t done it in the simplest of ways. Garmin Running Dynamics Pod is perhaps the most straightforward way to access Garmin’s power data. Let’s take a look!
Today cyclists are becoming more defensive when it comes to cycling in town and generally. So it is no surprise that the market for bike cams is growing. Cycliq launched the first dedicated bike cam with the Fly6 and have now gone back to the drawing board for the Cycliq Fly6 CE – so, is…
There has to be a point at which making a product “smart” ceases to enhance a device and just adds complexity. Not content with adding bluetooth connectivity, the Lattis Ellipse smart lock also features a solar panel. So can a bike lock have too much tech?? Let’s see!
If you have spent ANY time in the Zwift Facebook Groups, one of the most significant discussion points is, which is the best turbo trainer of Zwift? So let’s start of the Zwift Turbotrainer Wars series by having the Wahoo KICKR 2017 and the Tacx Neo go head to head! 3…2…1… FIGHT!
A sizeable chunky chain is undoubtedly going to keep your bike secure, but can be a bit overkill, if you are running into the corner shop for a pint of milk! Enter the Hiplok Z-Lok – only 18grams, and enough strength to deter an opportune thief, keep your wheels, frame or helmet safe
The Garmin Vector 3 pedals have undergone a dramatic change since Vector 2 – the comms pods have gone, and in has come Bluetooth, making this these pedals the first Bluetooth SENSORS from Garmin. So looks stylish, and good on paper, but should consider them fro Zwift? – Start the Zwift Gear Test!
The AfterShokz brand of headphones have been around for a few years now, but have always had a couple of minor niggles. Whether that was the weight, fit, or the hands free function. So will the AfterShokz Treks Air be a home run, or another headphone curio?
The Cycliq Fly12 CE is more than just an update to the previous Fly12. Cycliq have rebuilt their unit from the ground up, and thrown in some very cool little features too. Definatetly an action camera / bike light that any commuter should really be considering
The Kurt Kinetic Roll and Roll Smart Control is quite unique in the world of smart trainers, as the elastomer feet allow you to, well Rock and Roll. But is that extra movement a good thing in a Zwift race, or a hindrance in our favourite e-sport? Sounds like we need a Zwift Gear Test!
Wahoo has a range of heart rate monitors in the TICKR line, all using the standard chest strap. As optical heart rate devices have proliferated on smartwatches, we are also seeing the growth of stand-alone optical HRM units. How has Wahoo tried to differentiate themselves with the Wahoo TICKR fit?
The original Shimano CM-1000 didn’t win any accolades with me – by that read it was a very poor camera. Undeterred Shimano has returned to the crowded action camera market with a new sensor and a couple of interesting new tricks. Let’s see if things have improved enough to worry GoPro?
I made no secret of the fact that in my mind the Suunto Spartan was a bit naff. The Suunto Sport HR, was a little bit less naff, with optical HRM. So is third time the charm for the Suunto Spartan range? Let’s see what the Suunto Spartan Trainer Wrist HR has to offer!
Optical heart rate monitors have advanced over the last few years, such that they are found on devices across the wearable spectrum. Polar has now taken the tech full circle with the launch of the Polar OH1, stripped of any associated watch, we have a stand-alone optical heart rate monitor to be attached to your…
