Gogoro Eeyo wants to be the Porsche 911 of ebikes

Gogoro promised something special in ebikes, and the Gogoro Eeyo 1 delivers, aiming to buck the trend in powered cycling with a sleeker, lighter, and generally more fun way to get around. Tipping the scales at just over 26 pounds in its lightest form, the Eeyo 1 looks, at first glance, just like a regular bike. That's because Gogoro packed all of the assistance tech into its Eeyo Smartwheel hub.

Android Auto is finally coming to Harley-Davidson bikes

Android Auto is finally coming to Harley-Davidson bikes

As it says in its name, Android Auto was primarily designed for automobiles, a.k.a. cars. Those, however, aren't the only vehicles on wheels that warrants a safe way to interact with mobile apps and Internet services. While some might argue you shouldn't do that on a motorcycle anyway, the next best thing would be to have Apple CarPlay or Android Auto on a bike dashboard that few bikes even have. Fortunately, Harley-Davidson's 2021 bikes do and you can "upgrade" them to Android Auto soon.

CAKE’s glorious Osa+ e-bike hides a wake-up call in its details

Leave it to the Swedes to make an e-bike like no other, with CAKE bringing its endearingly atypical Osa+ to CES 2020 where it wows with its detailing.

NIU smart e-mopeds are coming to the US, sold directly to consumers

Thanks to high-profile companies like Tesla (and its equally high-profile CEO), electric vehicles have captured the attention of mainstream media. Although most of the EVs presented take the form of cars and trucks, those aren't the only kind of vehicles in the market. Electric bikes and mopeds don't always get the spotlight but NIU will try to change that by offering its smart electric mopeds to the US market, selling directly to consumers this time.

Hedkayse ONE Review: Multi-impact bike helmet for people who hate helmets

Hedkayse ONE Review: Multi-impact bike helmet for people who hate helmets

The Hedkayse ONE is a bicycle helmet made with several innovative design elements that, together, create a multi-impact, foldable, adjustable piece of head protection. For many years I've been stuck between cost and comfort in head protection whilst cycling.

This summer I got to test out the helmet called Hedkayse ONE, and it changed the way I thought about helmets entirely.
