Are you doing some last minute Christmas shopping for any one with two-wheeled inclinations? If so, here’s some cool cycling stuff for the festive season.
Stay visible during the dark winter months. Check out the funky Blaze Laser Lights or battery-free Reelight bike lamps and Salzmann Reflector Clips or RevoLights to illuminate your wheels. One thing that doesn’t have to be visible now is your helmet: the Hövding airbag collar marks a paradigm shift in head protection. Lots more nice gadgets are reviewed here and here (German).
