Apart from the obvious health benefits, cycling is a great way to unwind and blow off a little steam. Before you hop on your bike and take off for a picturesque ride, you should get your hands on some of this awesome cycling gear and tech…
Monkey Light Pro by MonkeyLectric
The Monkey Light Pro by MonkeyLectric is a most eccentric and entertaining LED lighting system for cycling. It has 4 bar-shape circuit boards and attached to it are 256 full-colour LEDs. Once the wheels are in motion, an image forms on it. Its flash drive can store up to a 1000 files and you can upload preferred animations and pictures.
Spiderman Cycling Suit
One thing is for sure, if you are looking to cycle incognito, this is definitely not for you. The Spiderman Cycling Suit is durable and will keep you as snug as a bug. You will be surprised as to how much attention to detail has been given to the design. Ride freely in it but don’t get carried away and attempt any web-slinging antics.
The Ritz Tuxedo Cycling Jersey Men’s Short Sleeve Special Edition by Primal Wear
Go for a ride looking like you are about to go for your prom. This hilarious cycling jersey has a printed design of a detailed tuxedo, complete with jacket, bowties, shirt and even a bicycle patterned waistcoat. It’s cheesier than a Gouda outlet and a whole lot of fun.

The ROC Compact Rotary Cycle Pump takes a single rotary action and converts it into several linear movements, so that repetitive pumping applications can be done in a jiffy. This bicycle pump is highly compact (weighs 300 gram) and significantly shortens tyre inflation time. It will be available later this year.

They are normal stickers at day and illuminate brightly in the dark. Cyclists can stick these temporary glow-in-the- dark tattoos on their arms to assist them with night time visibility and your hands can be used as efficient indicators.
