Nathan LightSpur LED
Feel like a car target when you run or ride at night? The innovative Nathan LightSpur LED “spur” fits around the back of your sneaker to boost visibility and keep you safe at night while you train for your 10K or century ride. Weather-resistant and powered with a watch battery, the LightSpur lasts 40-plus hours.
Stinky gear smelling up your gym bag? This one really is genius: With an exterior zip-up dirty clothes compartment you can compress to save space, the Genius Pack Overnight True Sport Duffle keeps your office shirt from smelling like your gym socks. Space for a change of clothes and shoes, extra pockets, and a chamber for an umbrella make this some bag of tricks.
Hate needing extra gear to check your heart rate? Under Armour’s new Wireless Heart Rate earbuds have plenty of bells and whistles—IPX 5 water-resistance, in-line mike with call control, Bluetooth 4.1—but what you’ll buy them for is the built-in heart rate monitor that uses the blood flow in your ear to send your exercise metrics to your smartphone. Oh, and the high-end buds, engineered by JBL, sound great, too.
Wish there were a cool small bike “rack”? If you’re tired of hoisting your trusty steed onto big, ugly hooks and don’t want the mess of a complicated pulley setup, check out the Clug (below). The world’s smallest, neatest bicycle holder, the Clug lets you lean your bike, wheel first, against any wall, then take it out in an instant, no lifting required. Available in three sizes (Roadie/MTB/Hybrid).
