TomTom Navi Rider – the companion
There are also motorcycle navigation devices that are designed with cyclists in mind with great attention to detail. The TomTom Navi Rider 500 comes with a special mount for bicycles. The 4.3-inch screen is designed to provide orientation at first glance without distracting from the journey. It also means it remains easy to read even in direct sunlight. The touch screen can also be operated with gloves and is weatherproof. The built-in Wi-Fi gives you maps of Europe, traffic information and updates. Is the route the target? There is a search function for this, which allows you to find routes with as many curves and climbs as possible or with an adventure feel.
Motorcycle backpack from Light
Not a gray mouse: the Daypack Light LSUP-B07 is waterproof thanks to the 500 D PVC material. With its dimensions of 33 x 24 x 60 cm, it offers a volume of 30 litres. If desired, the lightweight backpack’s padded shoulder straps can be removed. The contents are protected against water, dust and dirt. Originally designed for the SUP scene, the backpack also cuts a fine figure on motorcyclists.
Guangcailun dash cam
Your own road movie is recorded automatically – using a motorcycle dash cam. The waterproof model from Guangcailun is compact (10.5 x 3.1 cm) and can be attached either to the helmet or to the handlebars. With its Full HD resolution (1080p), the camera captures detailed images and covers a 120-degree perspective. A night vision function is integrated for night cyclists. The battery lasts up to 7 hours before the camera needs to be recharged. Videos can be transferred via WLAN. But beware: Anyone who films with a camera permanently and without a given reason risks a fine for breaching the Data Protection Act. We recommend dashcams that are only activated in the event of an emergency stop or an accident, or cameras that overwrite their own recordings again after a short time.
Smart flip-up helmet AI DI SAI
Black as night and with blue light on the side – it AI DI SAI Flip-up helmet with double visor is an eye-catcher. But the inner values also count here: Thanks to the integrated Bluetooth function and microphone, the helmet can be connected to a smartphone to make calls or listen to the individual soundtrack for the excursion. Several ventilation openings keep the helmet fresh. Anti-fog design and an inner lens against UV rays ensure safe vision.
Cable lock from Kryptonite
The name says it all: Kryptonite is the fictional material that even defeated the superhero Superman. The Kryptonite company proves its strength with cable locks that are as invincible as possible. The 220 cm long KryptoFlex710 Looped is a flexible steel cable for locking two-wheeled vehicles, whether they are motorcycles or up to two bicycles. What looks inconspicuous offers security thanks to the 10mm steel under the vinyl cover. Double loops at both ends make it possible to combine the gadget with any type of padlock.
Tarpaulin from Polo
The Polo brand specializes in motorcycles. You can see that in the details of the outdoor tarpaulin IV. The robust tarpaulin keeps dust, dirt and weather effects out on the outside, while the fleece on the inside protects the paintwork. The breathable membrane in the middle section ensures a dry climate under the tarpaulin, but is of course also waterproof. Another detail shows how the special needs of motorcyclists have been taken into account here: the tarpaulin’s heat-resistant material means that the bike can be protected, even if the exhaust has not yet cooled down completely.
Motorcycle catalog 2022
An institution for two-wheeled enthusiasts since 1970: the motorcycle catalog provides a comprehensive overview of everything with an engine and two wheels – from mopeds and scooters to motorcycles and competition bikes. In the motorcycle catalog for 2022, contemporary electric bikes are of course also represented. The encyclopedia on the current market has been prepared by the experts from the editors of the magazine “Motorrad”.
