If you left bicycling back in your youth, thinking you had seen it all and done it all, it might be time to come back. There’s really some terrific tech being woven into the industry. Case in point: the new smrtGRiPS from Montreal-based Boréal Bikes, the world’s first web-connected bike grips.

At 3.5 oz., these rechargeable grips stealthily slide into the end of flat, riser and cruiser handle bars. Via Bluetooth and the iOS and Android compatible app, the smrtGRiPS offer an assortment of features, including eyes-free navigation, which means the directions are given to you through vibrations in the left or right grip, letting you know which way to turn. The bike finder feature shows you where your ride went off to, and you’ll be connected to plenty of community-sourced info, like local bike lanes, trails, nearby friends and more.
