GPS-305 bike tracker – $90
Well hidden inside the bike’s handlebars is the GPS-306. It might not prevent a thief from putting his hands on your bike and stealing it, but it will provide you with the constant, live whereabouts of your bike in case it is stolen.

If you forgot them at home – fear not, that is what Lumos is for. Its integrated LED lights signal when you brake and turn, making the back of your head essentially a headlight and an indication of your cycling intentions.
The helmet has a Bluetooth connected remote control that is mounted on a handlebar. When cycling in busy areas, communication is key.
