Love cycling? Then you won’t want to fall behind the pack when it comes to cycle tech and equipment.
Including things to make you look more stylish, ride safer and add a new gear to your cycling exploits, here are some of the best items available to buy from Halfords now.
Do you consider a bike helmet as a piece of cycling equipment? Think again. The Livall MTL has taken an important piece of safety equipment and revolutionised it.
With innovative LED indicator turn signal lighting, you can simply press the remote on your handlebars to let drivers know where you will be going. This is a much safer alternative to raising your arm left or right.
The Livall MTL bike helmet also has an SOS alert feature which instantly sends an SMS to your emergency contact if the G-sensors notice any unusual movements or a sudden lack of movement.
Exclusive to Halfords, this helmet is one of the smartest and safest pieces of cycling tech on the market.
As the MTL’s older sibling, the BH60SE has very similar features, including the smart lighting for indicating and the SOS alert for extra safety.
However, what differentiates the two helmets and the cost is the added music feature. With built-in Bluetooth speakers and hands-free microphone, you can listen to music or answer calls on the go!
Monitoring your progress is really important if you want to take your cycling up a gear or two. The Garmin Edge 820 GPS Cycle Computer can map out routes, clock your speed and show you the live in-ride Strava segments so you can push yourself to hit the top of the leaderboard.
And that’s not all. The sensors allow you to keep tabs on your heart rate, while the GroupTrack feature will give you the chance to monitor where your nearest competitor is so you can continue pushing yourself.
Simply attach the Garmin Edge to your bike handlebars and off you go!
This piece of cycling equipment blows most other pieces of tech out of the water. From tracking workouts to monitoring your heart rate, fitness age and personal goals, it’s the best way to keep tabs on your progress while on the go.
What’s more, you can even make simple mobile payments via GarminPay, so there’s no need to bring your wallet when you stop off for a mid-ride spot of breakfast at the café.
The Side Swipe interface allows you to quickly scroll through the menu – even in the pouring rain.
If you need to let your mates know that you’re running behind, you can send automated text messages on it as well.
Relive all your amazing cycling adventures in 4K quality with the GoPro Hero5. Easily attach it to your helmet or handlebars and use simple voice commands to make sure the camera captures all the best views.
It’s also waterproof to 33ft (10m) too. So you can jump into the lake for a swim after a long ride and record every stroke.
