Just because temps are starting to drop doesn’t mean you have to stable your trusty steed. Biking to work is the best thing we can do for our mental and physical health and for the environment. So gear up and keep on trucking with these products from Tern Bicycles, BioLogic, and Ibex — you and your bike will be more than ready for whatever Autumn throws your way.
This fully equipped folding bike was designed to survive a zombie apocalypse. It contains an integrated lighting system which uses a powerful 41 lux and 150 lumens front light powered by the BioLogic Joule 3 dynamo hub, among the best of its kind on the market. This is an especially great feature to have as the days begin to get darker faster – the setting sun can’t ruin your ride! It also comes with award-winning BioLogic PostPump 2.0, stealthily concealing a high-capacity floor pump in its seat post. Bigger tires mean better traction, so you’ll stay safe on those icy morning roads. Plus, the Tern Eclipse folds for an easy carry in your arms, on the train or metro, or in the back of your car or taxi if the weather really gets too harsh! www.ternbicyles.com (MSRP $2100)
BioLogic Bike Mount WeatherCase
The WeatherCase fits like a glove on your handlebars with the help of the strong AnchorPoint mount, and protects your phone from rain, snow, sweat, and grime. Made from sonically-welded TPU with rain-proof zippers, nothing can get through these walls. Easy access is key – the touchscreen, front and rear cameras, and side volume/power buttons are all handy, and a flexible top opens easily to slip the phone in and out of the case. Double zippers allow access to headphones/charge port while the phone is in the case and CushionFit padding keeps phones nice and snug. You can even make calls through the WeatherCase without losing a bit of sound quality – but don’t forget to keep your eyes on the road! www.thinkbiologic.com (MSRP $ 34.95, available for iPhone, Galaxy and XL smartphones)
The Merino wool cardigan will take you from the streets to the office and back again. Welted hand pockets and reinforced elbow patches give this cardigan a fashionable touch while also providing a warm and durable layer on your ride. A sneaky back pocket also keeps both you and your belongings safe with a strong zipper and a reflective flag for heightened visibility. No need to change after your commute, just throw on the Ibex 4th Street Cardigan and take on your whole day. www.shop.ibex.com (MSRP $175, sewn in the U.S.)
Muni Wool Cap
Your head’s pretty important, so keep it warm with the Muni Wool Cap. Wool twill makes this cap warm and durable, but also keeps you looking good no matter where you wear it. A flexible bill blocks the sun and glare, and an elastic headband holds the cap in place come hell or high water. Soft and strong with just a little stretch, you’ll want to wear the Muni Wool Cap wherever you go. www.shop.ibex.com (MSRP $40, sewn in the U.S.)
The signature Ibex Shak is designed specifically for urban commuters without sacrificing style. Made from New Zealand Merino wool, this layer is guaranteed to keep you cozy from start to finish. Whether you wear it as a light jacket before winter sets in or as a mid-layer on colder days, the soft knit composition will serve you well. Reflective stripes, zippered pockets, and a full zipper seal the deal to make the Shak City Roller a perfect choice both on and off the bike. www.shop.ibex.com (MSRP $185, sewn in the U.S.)
