Litelok bicycle lock makes security lightweight

If you commute by bicycle, the odds are high that you've invested in a nice bike...which means you've also invested in a nice lock to help ensure someone doesn't nick it while you're in the office. Good bike locks are usually heavy bike locks, however, otherwise a pair of bolt cutters make them just about as useless as no bike at all. One company wants to free cyclists from the burden of heavy bike locks, however, and so it has developed the Litelok, a lock that is exactly what it sounds like: lightweight.

YERKA bike is unstealable because the bike is the lock

We've seen a lot of "smart" bikes lately, some as final products and some still in crowdfunding. But most of them, if not all, don't exactly protect your somewhat expensive and fancy incentive from one of the biggest cycling dangers of all: thieves. Some do have some sort of technology, but at most they help you only after the fact and not prevent theft in the first place. YERKA wants to change all that, by offering the vision of a bike that cannot be stolen, simply because the bike itself is the lock.

Fly12 camera doubles as bicycle headlight

Cycling can be a dangerous ordeal, namely because of vehicles and the hostility that sometimes exists between drivers and cyclists. For this reason, many cyclists choose to have a camera on their bike, a dash cam of sorts that keeps tabs on surroundings and that serves as evidence in the case of an accident. Fly12 is one of the newest cameras for cyclists to surface, and it brings a bit more to the table than your average action cam -- namely, it doubles as a headlight when its dark and as a safety light when its daytime.

Leaos Solar electric bicycle has integrated solar panels

Getting around by bike rather than car or bus has its advantages, but not everyone wants to be stuck pedaling for endless miles. That's where electric bicycles come into play, making it easier to travel long distances and traverse up steep hills. The downside to electric bikes are their range limitations -- you'll only get so far before you need to charge the bike or go back to pedaling. The Leaos Solar electric bike could solve that issue, at least for those in sunny locations, due to its built-in solar panels.

The Bionic Runner is a bicycle for the runners among us, offering an impact-free way to go on long runs without sacrificing the nature of running itself. This is accomplished using a design that eschews a bike seat and traditional pedals, instead featuring larger foot pads that move in a way resembling cross trainers. The way the bike functions is different from cross trainers, however, with the makers saying it is designed to replica the feel of running with a natural range of motion.

Impossible electric folding bike fits in an ordinary backpack

The "Impossible" bike is making obsolete the days of having to load your bicycle on the bus rack, strap it to poles, and wheel it into storage. Many folding bikes are available, but many of them are cumbersome, and even when folded they're often either still large or are plainly awkward. That isn't the case with Impossible, which folds into a neat frame small enough to fit in an ordinary backpack -- and, as a plus, it's electric, able to zip you around for up to 15 or so miles.
