Best Valentine's Day Gifts for Cyclists

Best Valentine's Day Gifts for Cyclists

Roses are red, violets are blue, your sweetheart loves cycling, how about you?

You got it right – if your other half loves cycling, bicycle-related Valentine's gifts are a nice way to say "I love you and I know what makes you happy".

And in the winter, off season in most of Northern hemisphere, when cyclists can't wait to get back to riding ways, such a gift is the perfect harbinger of spring. Really, cycling season is just around the corner! Here are some gifts that will make their heart beat faster.

1. USB-rechargeable XFire Safety Light With Laser Lane Markers

This is so much more than just a bright and rechargeable tail-light. It has lasers (score!) that provide lane markers on the road (double score!) – you bring a bike lane wherever you go. And yes, it's powerfully bright and rechargeable with a standard USB phone charger. And waterproof.

A gift that says: "I love you, and want you to be safe."'
Price: €32.81

2. Lumos Helmet

Now this is an innovative cycling accessory if we've ever seen one. Lumos itself claims to be the world’s first smart bicycle helmet, and it really is. It packs 60 LEDs, a three-axis accelerometer and a USB chargeable battery – still weighing just 410 grams. What it does is provide all kinds of lighting and indicators, depending on the situation, without much input from the rider. It is also controlled by a wireless remote at the handlebar. Perhaps the most important feature is that the triangle of LEDs at the rear illuminates simultaneously in a static red state to function as a brake light when braking is detected – thanks to the inputs from that accelerometer. But please note that you'll still need bike lights – this helmet is not a replacement for those.

A gift that says: "I love you, and want you to be safe – with the best gadgets." 
Price: €168
