Top Five Cycling Products For 2011

30 Dec

This year I’ve written about 110 product reviews and today I would like to make mention of my favorite cycling products of 2011. It was hard for me to narrow this list down to just five items, but I did follow a couple of guidelines. First, I decided to limit myself to one product per manufacturer, though some companies could have easily had more than one item this list. Second, this list is for products that I reviewed this year, though not all of them were introduced this year. Third, this list is in alphabetical order mainly because I couldn’t decide which product was going to be listed first. If you click on any of the links below it will take you to the complete review for the product mentioned.

Abvio Cyclemeter iPhone App. If you are fortunate enough to have an Apple iPhone then you can probably toss your GPS out and just use Cyclemeter to log your rides. I used this iPhone App on every one of my last 300 or so rides and it is insanely awesome! I think I have tried every iPhone app for cyclists that is available and this one is light-years ahead of the rest.

Dual Eyewear SL2 Sunglasses. The simplest way to explain the Dual SL2 Sunglasses is to tell you that they are a great pair of cycling sunglasses with a pair of reading glasses built-in. What this means is that now you can read even the smallest print on your GPS, bike computer or cell phone without having to switch glasses!

Genuine Innovations Top Dog Legend Floor Pump. Genuine Innovations has several products that could have easily made this list, but none of them have been used more than the Top Dog Legend Floor Pump. This floor pump has been on the market for several years and is incredibly well designed, durable and easy to use.

Illuminated Cycling Fire Eye 2.0 Helmet Light. Illuminated Cycling is a very small company, but their Fire Eye 2.0 helmet light is something that every commuter or roadie needs. Motorists are often easily distracted by phone calls, texting and screaming kids in the back of the car. The Fire Eye helmet light is the best way I know for a cyclist to make their presence known on the road.

Planet Bike Borealis Winter Cycling Gloves. The Borealis glove is windproof, water-resistant and the best winter cycling glove I’ve ever owned. This glove has only been on the market for a couple of months, but I’ve already used it for over 600 miles use, both on the road and on off-road trails.

    Thanks for all the great reviews this year, and I did buy Dual Power Eyewear Dual SL2 Sunglasses after seeing your review of this product.

    I’m getting those Borealis gloves! On my life list would be Ono’s reader sunglasses, similar to the Dual Power glasses, Buffs to warm up that winter air before you breath it, Uvex helmets for their nifty fastening system, Light & Motion Vis360 head/tail light because I can strap it on my spare helmet and never fiddle around with moving my lights from bike to bike, KEEN commuter sandals for ride+walk comfort, and all the merino wool I can layer on myself.

    Susan, you will love the gloves! I wanted to get a pair of Keen sandals, but apparently they do not make them in a wide size for men.
