Everysight Brings Fighter Pilot Tech to Cycling with Raptor Smart Glasses


Smart glasses hold the potential for a lot of benefits for cyclists. Being able to see information previously available only on your cycling computer or phone without taking your eyes off the road seems promising. But most smart glasses have been bulky and uses display pods that could potentially block part of your field of view.

Everysight aims to change all that. Using their Everysight Beam Technology, their new Raptor positions the information directly in your line of sight…

Thanks to Bryan from RTR Magazine for modeling Wide-Eyez for us!

At first glance, it’s pretty easy to tell if you’ll be a Wide-Eyez customer or not. We’re guessing many people will look at the add-on visor and immediately write it off as a fred-ly accessory that clearly will clash with your full Rapha kit.

I pretty much had too, right?) that there are a number of people who are willing to risk looking like a fred to have a more comfortable ride.

Roundup: Killer new tools, gadgets, storage options & Hacks


For all the talk SRAM put into the unhackable nature of their new eTAP wireless shifting, this conversion to control a Space Invaders game was brilliant. One controller moved you left, the other right, and a simultaneous push of both buttons fired.

For stuff you actually can by to hack (or fix) your own bike and components, or to just live in your car, blip past the break…
