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.

Electra Café Moto Go! e-bike gives a nod to the racers of old

E-bikes and speed aren't always used together. Due to their rather compact and bare natures, these battery-powered two-wheelers have different priorities but that doesn't mean they can't aspire to be the fastest among their peers. Inspired by old school racing bikes, Electra's latest Café Moto Go! e-bike displays family resemblance to café racers but also has the specs and the speed to go with the looks.

The EB-5 electric bicycle might be the best bicycle I've ever ridden - and I've been riding bikes my whole life. I've never lent much credence to the idea of using a bicycle with a motor.
