Vanhawks Valour carbon fiber smart bike

Nowadays you get smartphone connectivity for almost anything: cars, watches, glasses, drones. Hell, you can even park your car via an app. But what about bikes? A group of guys from Canada set out to answer that question, by introducing the Vanhawks Valour, the first ever carbon fiber smart bike. One piece of advice: buy one as soon as possible.

The Valour features a navigation system that utilizes turn signal-like l.e.d indicators on the handlebar; the bike also connects to either your iPhone, Android, or Pebble allowing you to sync with other Valour riders and share info about potholes, traffic or stolen Valours. And since it’s frame is built out of carbon fiber, you can easily carry this thing around without worrying what will happen to it if you drop it.
