[Update: 8th August 2016]
We think these are the coolest, most innovative bike accessories and gadgets around today. Everything from high tech, to simple and elegant. We've put them into categories so you can check out those which interest you. We've included information on where you can buy them and how much they cost. They’ll make awesome cycling gifts for friends and family...or for yourself.
Starting with our very own bike lock. Litelok is the lightest, flexible bike lock to have achieved Sold Secure Gold, the highest security rating awarded by Sold Secure (independent testing and certification house). Liteloks click closed without the need for a key, making it faster and easier to secure.
You can use the two bike locks together (in parallel or on separate wheels) for extra security, or joined together (in series) for extra length, whichever works best.
