The Best Bike Gadgets

Grease Monkey Wipes

During a 100-mile-long bike ride, friends Erin Whalen and Tim Stansbury had to fix a flat in the middle of nowhere. After fixing it, they were left with greasy, dirty hands and had no good way to clean them before having to grab their handlebars again. This was the genesis of Grease Monkey Wipes – Multipurpose, pre-moistened and disposable cleaning wipes that easily remove grease, oil, grime and more from hands without harsh chemicals. So effective they even work on metal, this made-in-the-U.S.A product is also eco-friendly. Grease Monkey is available at Amazon, Walmart (stores and online) and bicycle shops around the country.

A15 Monkey Lights

The A15 Monkey Lights have smart sensors to detect light levels and motion, so they turn on when you want and turn off when you don’t need them. They also have settings where the colors will change depending on the speed you’re biking, which is somewhat novel as well as fun and makes you feel a little more connected to your rides. Other specs of note are the lights are water/weatherproof, extremely durable, full color (can be set to a single color if desired), and they are assembled in the USA, for what that’s worth.

Big cities can be quite dangerous for bikers without proper signaling equipment. For this reason, Zackees developed turn signal gloves which contain 54 LEDs in the shape of arrows. When you decide to turn, all you
need to do is raise your hand and show the arrow. The gloves are made of highly durable Lycra Spandex which can sustain a lot of friction.
