Vanhawks Valour- World’s First Smart “Connected” Bicycle

Toronto-based brand Vanhawks introduces Valour for which claim to be the world’s “first smart, connected bicycle”. Beautifully designed and carbon fiber construction aside, the Vanhawks Valour incorporates some intelligent digital elements providing reliable and leisurely ride. The Valour uses Bluetooth to connect to the GPS on a smart phone, relaying turn-by-turn directions to the rider using LEDs built into the handlebars. Also, while riding, vibrating sensors on the handlebars can alert the rider of dangers in their blindspots. On-board sensors measure your calories burned, distance traveled, speed, best times and much more, allowing you stay fit and informed at all times.
