The carbon fiber frame may draw attention, but it’s the hidden details that make the Vanhawks Valour stand out. Punch an address into the companion smartphone app and LED lights on the handlebars will signal upcoming turns.
Even better, the bike watches your back; it has a blind-spot detection system much like those found in cars, and, if you veer toward approaching traffic, the handlebars vibrate to warn you. “We want to change the way people think about urban commuting,” says Sohaib Zahid, Vanhawks CEO and co-founder, “and the Valour is an easy, safe, and green option.”
