Vanhawks builds tech into bikes for safety

Techstination feature for Wednesday, August 2, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    A bicycle with lots of built in smarts.    The Vanhawks Valour may look a lot like a typical bike, but the safety technology built into it, really sets it apart.   About the tech,  Co-founder Sahaib Zahid says…

“It has a mapping, routing engine right in the bike.  So the bike can give you turn by turn navigation in the city if you want to get around without having your cell phone out on the handlebar.  But the whole idea is to make you safe on the road and give you a ride that’s distraction free.  It has built in lights, front and back, which are automatic, comes on and off dusk and dawn.  You can also  put them as daytime running lights.  And we also track your trip in terms of distance, calories, elevation and other metrics.”

Check out Vanhawks.com for more.  Prices start at 13 hundred dollars.
