HOMEOWNERS   AUTOMOBILE   BUSINESS   LIFE  

Do you remember adding cards to the spokes of your bike to make it sound like a motorcycle, or adding pretty pink tassels at the end of the handlebars? At some point in time, we've all added things to our bikes to make them stand out.  What would you say if I told you that there’s a new innovation that would not only make your bike super cool, but also turn it into a “smart” bike? That innovation comes to us from one of our Apron Project participants, Helios. The Helios Bars can be mounted to almost any bike and will turn it into a smarter, safer form of transportation.  What makes the handlebars so revolutionary?  They come equipped with LED lights that provide illumination while riding, and with a push of a button the rear facing LEDs can be used as a turn signal. For cyclists, sharing the road with cars can be a dangerous undertaking, now with Helios they can safely ride at night and feel secure they’re being seen by other vehicles.

Aside from the safety features that these handlebars offer, they also come equipped with Bluetooth technology. This gives the rider the ability to connect to their bike using an app on their smartphone. With the app, the rider can track their speed, mileage, and control the colors of the lights. If that wasn't impressive enough, the bars have a GPS device that allows the rider to input an address in their phone and the bike will provide turn by turn navigation by pulsing left or right indicating when a turn is approaching. The GPS tracker also makes it easy to track the bike in the event that it is lost or stolen; it’s almost like a digital bike lock.

If you think about it, the bike has remained unchanged for many years. Helios is revolutionizing the bicycling experience by reinventing the handlebars and how they are used. What started as safety feature for a bike has turned into something revolutionary; no other bike feature will do what the Helios Bars can do. Are you ready to join the smart bike revolution?
