Wide-Eyez Helmet Shield Review

Wide-Eyez Helmet Shield Review

If youve read any of my posts here on Commute by Bike or follow me on Facebook, you might know that I do not subscribe to traditional helmet orthodoxy. I believe they have their place, they can, in fact prevent or reduce the severity of some injuries, and that the decision to wear one should be an informed choice by adult riders, unencumbered by preconceived notions or cognitive bias. Sometimes, I ride without one. But there are reasons to wear helmets that have nothing to do with safety, statistics, or scare tactics. Helmets can actually be useful in and of themselves as platforms for other paraphernalia. Many riders mount GoPros or similar cameras on their helmets to film their rides, either for ...

Proviz Reflect360 Jacket – Elvis is in the Building!

If you ride your bike everyday like I do, your cycling jacket is super important.

Motorists will not only notice you, they may call Mulder and Scully landing you on the next X-Files. Hi, I am Josh with Bike Shop Hub. I am wearing a Probiz Reflect 360 plus jacket. I got this great jacket and it has been my favorite jacket of all time and I cannot stop wearing it! I wear it everywhere! The reason why ...

Light & Motions Vis 360 – A Crossing Guard Built into Your Helmet!

5 Comments Topics: Commute By Bike Written by Brian Mueller
Look out!

I will have over 345 days of riding in 2015... almost every weekday I commute with the Light and Motion Vis 360 and it keeps me out of dangerous situations by making me hyper visible to motorist. I am amazed how much pulsing light in the daytime catches the attention of motorist and keeps them aware that I am on the road too. Hi Brian Mueller with Bike Shop Hub here to talk about the Vis 360 and the 360 Plus from Light and Motion. Primarily today I am going to talk about the standard 360, the 360 is what I like to consider the life for the daily commuter. The reason is this little sucker (Vis 360) you keep you ...
